Little Guy

I got to add a new member to my musical family a few days ago. He's a soprano ukulele and I named him "Little Guy". He's my new baby. I love him so much we do everything together. Whenever I'm bored I strum him until my fingers get blisters and every night before bed we play a few tunes together and then I tuck him into his case and we go to bed.

 The scarf wouldn't stay on me during the photo shoot so I decided to let little guy wear it instead. Manscarf. 
Can you tell I've been playing with the photo editor?

Do you have an instrument you love to death?

Cute around the house

I have had NOTHING to blog about for the last few days but finally I found a few cute things to share.
Why do cats love sleeping in planters?

How to Keep Your Bangs Back

I hate it when my bangs hang in my face and NOTHING will keep them back. Bobby pins leave a little at the end that flips out, barrettes fall out, and all my other clips break or get lost. In my house, hair accessories don't last a week. That's why I love this no clip, super quick solution that looks really cute and stays put for quite a while if you do it right. 
Step One: grab the top layer of your bangs and bring it towards the back of your head.  How high or low you want it is up to you.

Twist that bit of hair. The more you twist the longer it will hold. 

Next, grab the bit of hair under that. Try and get some bang and long hair in there together.

twist the top part and the bottom part together and bring it toward the back of your head.

 Now, you have a choice. You can do it on the other side with or without bangs and secure them in the back if you want to use a clip, or just make a pony tail around it like the photo below. 

And TA DA! 

My photographer. Her only form of payment is that I let her take a picture of herself and I'll post it. 

Big and little sis love.

A Profile picture

Now that I have a blog, I think I need a picture for my profile. After an hour of scrolling through my millions of not so great pictures I decided I would just have to take some new pics. I asked my little sister to help me and we headed for the backyard. As you can tell, my cat Viggo, was not to happy about having his picture taken. I didn't like any I took today but luckily I found I had over looked one picture that really turned out alright after some cropping and playing with some sort of settings involved with hue and tint or something like that. Enjoy.

I'm making another weird face

can you see how mad the cat was? I was just desperately trying to keep him  from jumping out of  my arms

I have no idea why he does that! 

I finally settled on this one

Hi and welcome to Faith, Fashion, and Fun!
I’m Philothea and I’m creating this blog to share, my thoughts, ideas, and other random but cool stuff about my Faith, my style, my family and friends, and other stuff. I’m a homeschooling Orthodox Christian who lives in California and I love music, interior decorating, good food, family, and friends. I’m really excited about having my own blog! I hope to be able to post at least every week, but I kinda doubt that will happen. Well, we’ll see. Thanks for stopping by!
