Inspired Fridays (#15)

Inspired Fridays is a weekly meme hosted by Inkk ReviewsYou don't have to actually craft anything to "be inspired". Show something you maybe have done, want to try, or whatever inspires you!

Here's what inspires me this week...

I've always loved braids!! You can easily catch me on the sofa watching TV while I play with my hair and do/undo braids over and over. It might sounds compulsive, I know, but I find it quite relaxing.

Recently I've mastered the art to do fishtail braids, WOOT! At the beginning I thought it was going to be something complex to achieve, then I was "No way! Is it so simple? Really!?" and so I've started having fun!

The picture on the left (it's not me or it would have been deep black, but I liked the photo and also the top!) shows a beautiful result. Then, sometimes I like to leave most of the hair down (that's the beauty of long hair after all) with just a fishtail braid crown or a fishtail braid on one side. Yep, you can say I'm in love with this kind of braid! ;P

Now, could you ever believe that after achieving a goal I would stop challenging myself!?
Of course not, you know me better than that, don't you? ;)

<- Here on the left there's my next mission...

*pause to admire the mission (impossible?)*

...Gorgeous, isn't it?

*sparkling eyes*

THAT definitely sounds complex!
It might take me a while to master it, huh?
Certainly, but hey, easy is boring so, let's do this!

What do you think? And what inspires you?

    I know you've mastered it, they always look cool when you show me!

  2. Wow so I totally suck at all things braids. I look at the fishtail and am like WHY CANT YOU LOOK EASIER!! Its so pretty. The second looks like something I would end up getting my own fingers tangled in lol. You definitely have to show us once you do it.

  3. If it can be of any consolation, I had the same thought at least the first ten times I stared at it. LOL Then, after a few complete failures there it was, pretty and easy! Here, if you want to give this fishtail a go then I recommend to have a look at this tutorial, I found it really helpful :)
    As for the second braid, I'm a bit scared myself... I don't know when and IF I'll ever be able to do that without tangling my fingers but I'll try for sure!

  4. I did my first French Braid on my daughter the other day.. It turned out really well. I think I'll stick with that for a while.. lol.

  5. Haha, I might have scared someone, huh? LOL But really, the first one is not so complicated as it may appear. Of course, the second braid is a nightmare... but I'm not quitting (yet)! My grandma used to do French Braids on me and I think it's a gorgeous kind of braid. I hope your daughter loves it :)

  6. She really did. Her newest thing is she wants to have curly hair, her's is very straight.. I told her I could make that happen, she would just have to let me find the things to do it. :)

  7. Trust me, it takes less than you think and a bit of patience is a fair price for such a gorgeous braid! ;)

  8. I've been wondering how to do that first braid. It looks like it takes longer than I have the patience for though. lol.
