Another hair trick: How to do beachy waves in less than 5 minutes: Divide your hair into two parts. Twist each section and tie with a hair tie. Run your straighter/flat iron over both of the twist a few times. Untie twists, and you're done.
DIY Craft: Use a normal composition notebook from Staples, Indigo, Michaels, etc. Then use chalk board paint- can get any craft store. Paint the notebook completely black- let it dry and then you can write whatever you want on it! What a clever idea!
