A "Unique" Outfit and Hairstyles.

I went to visit my grandparents and siblings this last weekend. When I took my coat off at their house, the first thing my grandpa said was, "Oh, now I know why you can blog about clothes and stuff. That outfit is quite...unique."

And my brother said, "Actually, Grandpa, I think it's kind of tame for Rachel."

So, it's either a unique outfit or a tame outfit, it all depends on perspective.

 I was also able to use my newfound cosmetology skills over the weekend, because while I was there, I gave Isaac a clipper cut, colored Lizzy's hair black and practiced my fishtail and butterfly braid techniques.


This is Isaac showing me how the taking pictures of yourself from an arm's length away trick really doesn't work with fancy cameras. I guess the lens he was using wasn't great for this type of shot? Oh well, that's something my point-and-shoot has on his camera. Angel and I are always taking pictures from an arm's length away!

  1. Love it! Haha, you gorgeous girl. I love the way you put together outfits that work, but that I would never even imagine. Go figure! It's the creative awesomeness of God expressing who He is in you - how He puts together the unexpected and makes beautiful tapestries of life out of them.
