Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

I shouldn’t be allowed to have an iphone.

Yup. 
another one bites the dust. 
I am on my 7th iPhone y’all. SEVENTH. I exaggerate not. 
iPhones all tend to meet the same fate while in my possession. Sometimes it’s the toilet. Sometimes they get run over. Or sometimes they just jump out of my hands. 
Grrrr
I am not a happy camper right now. I had high hopes to hold out until the new iPhone5 came out, but it appears I am gonna have to go ahead and get a new one now. Bogus. 
I think I am gonna go with the white. Why not? 

In other news, I got low lights. 
Like 5 of them. HA. SEEEE?!
Brittney and I discussed that it may help with my situation, which is actually doing a lot better. It was just that one little spot, so I have no idea what happened. Anyhoo, she assured me that all of my baby hairs were doing just fine. 
And yes, if you happened to notice, I do have a little braid hidden in the messy updo today. It’s fun right? I just braided a little section before I put it up, and then pinned it back when I put my hair in a ponytail. 
Easy enough 🙂
Y’alls comments yesterday have be scouring Pinterest for above my bed inspiration. I got some great ideas, thanks ladies!

    i'm on my third! but i bought the last one through best buy so i got their insurance plan for $13/month.

    how do you do the little bun in the last pic?

  4. Julie says:

    I am an iphone destroyer as well, but i did find out you can just replace the screen…sometimes 🙂 the braid is too cute!

  5. morganegrant says:

    The white iphone is awesome! It just makes Lilly Pulitzer covers PoP! BUT I think you sould invest in an Otterbox for a cover! Seriously… those things can hold up!

  6. Lol poor girl! Get you an otter box! I'm horrrrible with phones too! 🙂 I have the white one and it's presh! And that braid, love love!

  7. Rissy says:

    7!?? wow I don't know what to say Alison hahaha I have the white one though and we're pretty much in love.

    5 whole low lights?! look at you changing it up hehe

  8. Jenn says:

    I know they aren't very cute, but you really should get an Otterbox for your new phone. It's awesome! And it's far cheaper than buying new phones.

  9. Faison says:

    Ugh, I feel ya! I dropped my iPhone on Sunday and shattered the back glass, and it's not the first time that I've done that! I think this is a perfect excuse to get the white one! (now I'm kind of wanting to drop mine some more to get a white iPhone… kidding! kidding.)

  10. I like the white iphone, it's totally cute, you should definitely get that one! Love the low lights and the braid you did in your hair. You have the prettiest hair!

  11. Lindsey says:

    my iphone (first ever) is on it's way to me as we speak. Yes, I got white. And I will be a proud new owner of an iphone by 3 p.m.

    Tammy says hi.

  12. Natalie says:

    Even though they aren't the prettiest cases, an otterbox will save your phone!! I drop mine at least once a day and nothing has happened to it! *knock on wood*

  13. Katie says:

    7th iphone?!? hahah oh girl, love it. The 1st day I got mine I dropped it in the toilet while texting…. so tragic. Love the braid!

  14. Katie says:

    Do you have a cover on your phone? I have dropped mine before and the case seems to save its little butt!

    Love the braid. too cute!

  15. Melanie says:

    Your makeup is flawless! What kind do you use?

  16. MaviDeniz says:

    You remind me of my friend Angela, she is constantly losing or breaking her phone. She has an iPhone now and no joke, she must have went through like 10 of them lol

    Xo

  17. I know that other people have already commented saying this but you should def. consider the Otterbox. One of my friends dropped my iPhone off her third floor balcony into a parking lot and it was completely fine! And I got my otterbox off this website for 23 dollars when they are usually 50! Good luck!! xoxo

  18. Mallory says:

    This literally JUST happened to me! You can read all about my episode here: http://pinkkissesandwishes.blogspot.com/2012/02/not-quite-as-planned.html

    I'm on my 5th one:( Maybe they should just make unbreakable ones for people like us:)

  19. Alexandra says:

    You totes just need an awesome phone case to protect your 8th phone! I suggest Cellairis cases because if this:

    https://cellairis.com/product/elle-and-blair-summer-glow-case-for-iphone-4-4s-silver

    …doesn't scream PinkLouLou then I don't know what does?! Plus they are amazing to their customers, let me tell ya!

  20. I'm all about the braids and I think yours is perfectly executed! Nice work!

  21. *Bekah* says:

    Ah I want the white Iphone so bad, my sister just got one and is obsessed. I'm waiting on my Droid to bite the dust…. It might need to get dropped on "accident" in the toliet.

    Oh and I agree with everyone saying get an Otter box. You can get a pink one now for the iphone!

  22. Kalli says:

    Get an otterbox case for your iPhone!!! I have one and I constantly am dropping my phone and it has yet to even get a scratch!! (I have had it for a year!!) They are a little bulky and a little expensive, but they are much cheaper than a new phone!!! And they come in super cute colors!!! Like bright pink!!!!

  23. OMG girl!! What are you doing to those poor iphones!? I have the white and love it 🙂

    Cute little braid. I like the fun it adds to a regular up-do.

  24. Ann says:

    Just got a new white iPhone and I love it!

  25. Emily says:

    I bought the cutest monogrammed iPhone case from Marley Lilly…and then dropped my phone 🙁 I hate Otter Boxes but I'm currently rocking the pink one because I cannot afford to replace my iPhone again any time soon!

  26. Shelby0624 says:

    You should really do a full make-up tutorial! I bought almost all the make-up you suggested, but my make-up still doesn't look as flawless as yours!

  27. Cami says:

    Your complexion is beautiful, girl! Love your hair, too 🙂

    Do you have insurance on your phone? Hope so. Haha!

    <3-Cami from First Day of My Life

  28. Goodness gracious hun! How on earth does one break 7 iphones!? LOL

    Maybe you need a better case? Like one with military defense materials.. haha. My H got me a great case from Juicy Coutoure.. it's pink with sparklies and has a dangly crown with bling on it. It has PLL's name all over it! ;0)

  29. I hate broken iPhones 🙁 Hope you have some luck with the next one!

    P.s. You look just like Carrie in that last pic!

  30. Jess... says:

    No idea if that last comment worked, but if it did, it was me!

    I'm currently in the process of changing my blog name so was signed in on my new one. GAH, blonde moment!

  31. Tiffany says:

    That is the EXACT reason I do not own an iphone. I drop my phones wayyyy to often!

  32. The 5 low lights comment made me giggle. Made me think of me. I never get the lowlights, just let me roots grow enough to help it out. ha!

  33. I know you read these comments & laugh because everyone says the same thing – but it is unanimous, your skin is fabo.

    More importantly, I'm a Michael Kors fan so this was an easy transition for me – but I used the Otter Box up until this summer (I've been using an iPhone 5 years!) when MK released the iPhone case/wallets. It's great for your debit card, cash, etc. & it doesn't hurt that I get compliments on it left and right!

  37. Brit says:

    Def go with the white iPhone! I am in love with it. I've had every phone under the sun but I will never look back!!

  38. Oh PLL! I have one word for you…..Otterbox. Worth every penny! For real! They have really pretty ones and I'm sure with your bling magic you could make it beautiful!

  39. Cute braid! I am going to have to try that tomorrow! Sorry about your iPhone 🙁

    Have a great week!

  40. OMG – I scrolled all the way down and didn't see a single comment about the lifeproof cases! They are not blingy but you can swim, dive, AND shower with it. The colors are limited but I am sure you can bling it up and it does come in PINK! It's was slimmer and cooler than an otter imho and hello – it's shatter-proof and waterproof!

  41. Im surprised my iphone hasn't broken yet. I have dropped it a gazzillion times on the floor and everything else. And I still have the 3GS.
    And Im so going to go try that with my hair today.

  42. Love the hidden braid! I did that with all my bridesmaids hair at my wedding! Sorry about your iPhone…I always break mine too and am definitely getting a white one next!

  43. Baby Momma says:

    Get yourself a LifeProof case….they are indestructible! My husband has one and he swears by it. They aren't as bulky as an Otterbox case, but they really work and protect your phone!

  44. Heather says:

    I just got an iPhone- the white one- and loooove it! But, that's not saying much because I was addicted to my {crack}berry before, and this is my first iPhone. So far, so good! 🙂 I'm sorry about your bad luck with yours. 🙁 If you do get a new one, the white one is reallyyyyy prettyyyy. 🙂

    Love your cute hairstyles and low lights, too!!

    New follower, btw! 🙂

  45. I feel your pain:( Ugh…I went through 3 iPhones in a 2 month period. Needless to say I was broke:( Love the little braid in your hair…I'll have to try rocking that soon:)

  46. Laney Ellen says:

    your braid is the cutest! Okay, I just busted my 4th ihpone case, since may.. and im talking about the 50 dollar cases. What is wrong with me. I have issues.

  47. Shelly says:

    I have been thinking of getting low lights – did you get half head?? x

  48. sLe says:

    You need to get a Life Proof case!! They aren't the cutest ones but they are waterproof, shatterproof, shockproof…basically EVERYTHING proof!

  49. 7 girl? Oh goodness! Ha! I just got my very first every iPhone and I got the white and I love it. I hear they are doing away with the white though…

  50. i think i am going to be a new owner of a white iPhone 4S soon as well… the updated camera totally sold me!

  51. Day Old News says:

    You need to deal with the non-cuteness of an Otterbox cover because I dropped mine in a dog waterbowl, down 4 flights of cement stairs in the parking garage, and Lord knows what else. They are practically indestructible!

  52. Goodness! You need an otter box. My OB drops his often and the otter box keeps it safe.
