For the mommas out there who are completely helpless in the Doing Girls Hair Department (๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ), I have blog post up today with a SUPER easy hairstyle that I can do while this girl bounces around the room yelping about how much it hurts when the brush is nowhere near her head ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚

Just casually shopping the party aisle, like you do.
