You want to make sure to pack a variety of outfits for all the various activities that will be going on during spring break! Most of the week you will be hanging out on the beach in your favorite Amuse swim suit with a cover up and some nights you might be hanging out at the club, which requires a dressier outfit like a romper with a pair of heels. Other days you might just want to run around in your Simply Southern tees with a pair of denim shorts and Reef sandals.

A Gift Giving Guide for Valentine’s Day

We’re always trying to find the perfect gift to give to our valentine’s and although there are a thousand of ideas out there your just not sure if she will love it! Here is a gift giving guide that will help you pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that she will love!

Alex and Ani

Alex and AniYou won’t go wrong giving your valentine an Alex and Ani bangle this year! And you’re probably thinking there are just way too many bangles to pick out the perfect one that she will love. Well, here is a little guidance for getting her the perfect Alex and Ani bangle!

If she is just starting her collection then I always recommend giving The Path of Life or the Tree of Life bangle. The Path of Life stands for strength, motivation and knowledge. The Tree of Life stands for hope, conservation, and growth. I think these are the two most generic Alex and Ani bangles that would be perfect for just about anyone.

If you don’t think The Path of Life or The Tree of Life are the perfect ones for her then there are plenty of other options. Another one I would recommend is the initials bangles or the birthstone bangles.  These are more personal and you won’t go wrong giving your valentine one of these.Alex and Ani

And the last option I recommend is the Alex and Ani Valentine’s Day Collection. There are many different styles to choose from in this collection. Pictured below is the Love Set of 3 paired with many other Alex and Ani bangles. I personally love this set because it includes the Love Color Infusion Charm Bangle, a metal beaded bangle and a metal and glass beaded bangle all in the Shiney Rose Gold.

Key Chains and Koozies

Natural Life Key ChainsAlthough the Alex and Ani bangles are nice, we have Natural Life key chains and koozies that would also be perfect for your valentine. These cute key chains are a daily reminder to stay positive with quotes like “Don’t look back you’re not going that way” andNatural Life Koozies “I think I’ll just be happy today.” These koozie are always fun and enjoyable. There is a quote on one that I just love and would be perfect for your valentine, “Live by the Sun, love by the Moon.” Evenif your valentine isn’t a girlfriend or wife, these Natural Life accessories would be perfect for either your best friend or sister that could be your valentine this year.

7 Cute Ways to Wear a Headband

1. The Plain Jane

One of the first cute ways to wear a headband is a simple one. You wear your hair down straight or curled all the time right? It is important not to overthink things and just slip the headband over your head. You can push the back of the headband up to create a slight bump for extra style, or just leave as is. Style your bangs however feels most comfortable and stroll out of your front door. Simple. And super cute. We used the Natural Life Boho Bandeau for our basic everyday look.

One of the most practical and cute ways to wear a headband is during your daily workout. Intense workouts can be sweaty and you will appreciate a headband that is easy to wear and keeps the hair away from your face. We recommend styling the Pink Pewter Stella Microfiber Yoga Headband. This amazing headband’s fabric stays in place during your most strenuous sweat sessions. And you look good wearing it. Score!

3. The Super Chic

A unique and easy way to style a headband is by wrapping it around your hair bun. Whether you wrap your bun with a rhinestone-embellished headband, or use a subtle and decorative metallic headband, this look will elevate a simple bun from ordinary to chic! We used the Pink Pewter Allison Headband for our high-fashion look. As a variation, use one of our Pink Pewter Hair Clips instead!

4. The Flower Child

Peace, Love, Floral. Perhaps one of the easiest and cute ways to style a headband is across the forehead. This retro and adorable look is surprisingly easy to pull off whether you have long and luscious locks or a short bob. You can style your hair up or down because this look will be perfect either way with one of our Floral Headbands.

5. The Refined Lady

We are about to knock your socks off with our next hairstyle. Of all the cute ways to wear a headband, this one will leave you the most excited. Many of us think that to achieve an elegant and sophisticated updo, we have to schedule an appointment with our hair stylist. What if we told you that you could accomplish this by yourself in less than 5 minutes? That’s what we thought! Pink Pewter has made this possible with their many styles of embellished stretch headbands. It is as easy as slipping the headband over your head and tucking your hair in the double elastic stretch band. Check out how to achieve this easy style below! Need step-by-step instructions? Click here. For a variation, braid your hair into sections before tucking it into the elastic headband. Or you can switch it up and only roll the top half of your hair for a half up half down look. We used the Pink Pewter Amari Headband.

6. The Girl Next Door

Feeling girly? Braiding your hair to the side and styling a headband can be one of the softest and most feminine ways to wear a headband. Can’t braid your own hair? No worries! A side ponytail will suffice to achieve this cute girl-next-door look. We used a delicate lace design to add more of a dainty feel. Another great style of headband for this look is the Natural Life Crochet Headband.

7. The Stylish Tomboy

Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up and just don’t feel like messing with your hair at all? Guilty! Perfect for those carefree days, the turban headband is ideal for the ladies out there that love to throw their hair into a messy bun, brush on minimal make-up, and go about their day. You will still look put-together by styling one of our Pink Pewter Turban Headbands with your cute and messy ponytail. This look is especially cute with an oversized sweatshirt and leggings. Promise!
