Here it is… The Belt Tutorial!! The hair tutorial will be coming later this week! Let me know if you have any questions!!  {Sorry about the blurry intro – I’m still working out kinks!}

Just in case you don’t have time to view the video, I did take some pics too!

{1} Pull belt through buckle and press tab down to corner.

 {2} Wrap belt under itself.

 {3} Weave belt back through loop and under.

 {4} Voila!  You’ve just tied your belt!

Today is my day of firsts! My first video tutorial and first blog award!!!! A HUGE thank you to Kim from Sassy Uptown Chic!!  She awarded me with the “Kreativ Blogger” award!  If you haven’t met her, she is the sweetest!  She definitely has southern charm since she’s a NOLA blogger!

Rules: Link back to the person who passed you the award, complete the form below, award 10 blogs, and drop them a line about it.

Share 7 random things about yourself:

  1. I love to paint.  I think watercolors are beautiful, but they are the hardest medium for me to use.
  2. I have a sweet tooth and a “salty” tooth.  I could eat a whole jar of pickles in one sitting!  
  3. I love dance, especially ballet.  I could watch “So You Think You Can Dance” or “Dancing with the Stars” marathons!
  4. I was a die hard Nine Inch Nails fan.
  5. I have a hard time making decisions. (Can you tell?!  I have a lot of favorites!)
  6. One of my favorite holidays is Halloween!  I love seeing clever costumes.  {One of our friends was a serial killer.  He wore a black sweat suit with cereal boxes glued to himself.  Most of the boxes were stabbed with a knife or “bloody”!  LOL!}
  7. I started blogging because my friends wanted me to blog.  Hence, the title of my first blog was called “My Friends Want Me to Blog”!

Now, it’s time for me to share the LOVE!

10 Bloggers who I am passing this award to {in no particular order}:

  1. Saved by the Behl
  2. The Best Beauty Blog
  3. Skippy Says
  4. Defining Tabitha
  5. Brooklyn.Life.Style.
  6. Swanky Chic Fete
  7. Girl on a Mission

Sorry about the quality of the video!  I’m still a vlogger novice!! LOL!  I have the hair tutorial done, but I may try to redo it if I have time this week!  {The lighting isn’t the best in the video.}
