Cute and girly headbands...

"Melancholy/Phlegmatic," and boy am I feeling it today.

Perhaps it is my song choice.

Perhaps it is a sea of chlorine-free beige cupcake wrappers filled with deep chocolate brown calories.

Perhaps it is the dreary weather; the rush of thick humid air absent from my evenings.

Perhaps I am not sleeping enough, and I am sure I hear everyone shout an "Amen."

I can say that I am feeling very deep, slightly anti-social, politically irritated, and not really wanting to share anything with anyone.

Well, sort of.

Anyway, I have been a bit obsessed with an Etsy store which sells coiled rose-studded headbands and clips.  This girl appears to have made thousands of these things, so by the power of reasoning I figured that it really couldn't be that difficult.

And I was right.  I made three of these little beauties, and the process took nearly 15 minutes apiece.

Oh, well... I forgot about the button.  Maybe 20 minutes.  But really, not very long at all.

Typical "Rachel Style," skinny jeans, embellished shirt, and dumb ol' shoes.  I have had these since 2001.  And they smell like it.

Even Langston came in to play.

Here is one of the others...

Ok.  I really need to put the nose ring back in.

Aren't they cute?

Doesn't reading the word, "cute" make you feel better about my mental state??



;) and a wink for good measure.

I plan to show a tutorial on how to make one of these next week, but I could also send you one if you want.  Email at, and I'll make it happen.

Have a great weekend!
