How to: Sock bun!

This trend is huge right now…and it is all over Pinterest which is where I found this picture. It’s a really easy and simple way to make the sock bun. I tried doing it and didn’t work well lol because my hair is like above my shoulders and too thin it didn’t work. But if you have medium to thick hair it should work well for you.

Easy chicken noodle soup


Everyone loves chicken noodle soup, it’s soothing to the soul some say. It’s the perfect pick me up when you are sick and a great snack if you want something light. This is a really simple and easy recipe that my sister makes and I love it. I usually just make this in a big crock pot so it will last for a week and it is so yummy. Image from
