Hello Friends. And if you’re fellow Pintestes, welcome to Wom-Mom!
It should come as no surprise to any of you that I love a good blog challenge. Lori and I have done quite a few of them on this blog, just check the ‘Popular Posts’ column over there on the right. The best part about the Pintester Movement is that we’re only being challenged to mediocrity. Ingenious. (Check out other Pintestes test
es on her blog's Pintester Movement Category here.)
This time, our sage Pintester has challenged us to re-test things she’s already tested for us. I took quite a while scrolling through her tests, picking just the thing to try for y’all today. I share Pintester’s longing to achieve Pinterest perfection in all the beauty pins. But what a joke! No actual human can do this sh!t. (No offense to the lady who originally posted this hairstyle - the Modern Bun - from her blog, here, she seems nice.)
|The original - very classy.|
|Pintester - VERY CLASSY.|
Pintester’s hair was too short, or something, for the Modern Bun when she tried it here. It looks nothing like a bun. Surely my hair, which is much longer, will be perfect?
|Long, lifeless tresses.|
I followed the directions from the original post EXACTLY.
|High, loose ponytail|
|My ends look like straw, no?|
And I looked effing ridiculous. The bun part stuck up so high I looked like I had all of my Bumpits stacked one upon the other underneath it.
|It's a golden shower.|
I tried to bobby pin the pieces in the back, but my layers fell out all over the place anyway.
Then the bun started falling apart. Not even a whole can of AquaNet hairspray could save it. Which I don’t have anyway.
|Right. One erect piece left.|
It took me so long trying to take a picture with my phone that Shaun came to the bathroom door to ask if I was taking a deuce. No, I’m doing a stupid hairstyle challenge for the blog, SHAUN (which is even more embarrassing to admit to my long-suffering husband).
I decided that the only thing left to do was to stick a pink shiny heart on my dimple, pretend I’m Amanda Bynes and take the best selfie I could. "You're ugly!"
|Nailed it. PS, no, I do not normally have a double-chin. PPS, Shaun asked me why I had a heart on my face when I came out of the bathroom. Oh, you know, I'm fancy, or possibly pretending I have my cheek pierced.|
