How to Create the Bubble Braid

Within the past year, I have challenged myself to step outside of my stylistic comfort zone. Now, I’d describe my overall style as either minimalistic and simple or eclectic. That being said, my hair styles are evolving as well.

I saw a single bubble braid style while scrolling on my Explorer page on Instagram and thought it would be cool to style them as two bubble pigtail braids.

This entire look took me less than 10 mins to complete and all you’ll need is a comb, 8 small rubber bands, and a few pumps of hairspray.

I first divide my hair down the middle.

Next, I gather each half to form pigtails.

Then, I tease about 3-4 inches of hair (depending on your length).

Once you see volume added, comb it neat, and tie section.

Mirror the other side…

Keep alternating halves so that you can make sure each section is even.

Room Decor for Lazy People

I wanted a space that SCREAMED vibes on top of vibes. Growing up and throughout college, I never bothered to decorate my bedroom, (aside from that one time my room was blasted in Bratz Doll decor, thanks Mom!) The only thing my room ever was – was messy af. No joke, I literally had clothes lying around that collected dust (I knowww, fml.) I would defend my mess to my roommates with the logic that, “the most creative people flourish in clutter.” But internally, I felt like a lazy POS looking around the room, it seriously was unsettling just being there!

There was even a time when a roommate had her friend over and the friend asked if she was living with a dude -___- Like how embarrassing?! But I told myself, “NBD Jasmin, it’s just the hustle and bustle of college that shaped your ways.”

Ummm, well, come one year post grad, and my ass was just as messy…

So finally, post break-up, I decided to end that nasty pattern and create a room filled with ambiance. I knew I wanted corals, navy blues, and mixed prints. I wanted photo detailing, natural lighting, a touch of boho chic, cultural symbols from my time abroad, and just an overall eclectic feel. So naturally I turned to Pinterest and got some major inspo.

I went to HomeGoods (aka Heaven), World Market, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls and picked out random pieces.

*I get it, there’s a lot going on, and maybe I went 0-100 with this but I am just so in love with my space! I actualllly find peace and clarity being in my room now (thank God). Not to be dramatic (lol) but I feel as if the new room did for me, kind of what a new hairstyle does for people: it signified change in my life and has manifested a brighter energy. Plus, a lot more Netflix and chill (not like that) has been in order.

I know I am late to the game of being organized but for those like me, I swear this small lifestyle change will make a world of difference, okurrrr.

Some of y’all right now…
