Holiday Hair in 5 Minutes?! Yes! This Braided Updo Is Really That Easy!

Happy holidays, everyone!

I’m currently home in Michigan where It. Is. Freezing. Everyone keeps telling me it’s not that bad and OK, fiiiine, I admittedly have become such a baby since moving to California — but going outside is a real struggle!! I forgot how much of a process it is: the jackets, the boots, the scarves, the gloves, and yet you’re still shivering. Then when you get inside, within 10 seconds you’re sweating profusely from so many layers! I’ve been home for two days and have left the house twice. Embarrassing, I know. It’s been hot chocolate, old photos and good movies on repeat!

I do love that the cold gives me an excuse to be on the lazy side since I don’t get to do that very often. OK, on the very lazy side. Sometimes there’s nothing that feels better than wearing pajamas (with cartoon milk and cookies on them) for an entire day. #noshameinmygame
