Hallmark Channel’s Paw-Star Kitten Game

Kitten Bowl lovers, rejoice! While the next fur-flying gridiron showdown is still months away, this Sunday’s paw-star baseball game is sure to be every bit as furr-ific.

Will you be tuning in to Hallmark Channel to watch? Based on the preview videos and cat-lete lineup, it looks as if North Shore Animal League has rounded up yet another all-star litter of adorable, adoptable felines.

The big game airs Sunday, July 12 at 5 p.m./4 p.m. Central. I'll be watching and rooting for each of these sweet kitties to walk away with the ultimate prize – a loving forever home.

Bridesmaid Hairstyle Idea: Elsa-Inspired Side Braid

Why, hello there! Long time, no see! I took an extended blogging break while traveling out to California for a best friend’s wedding, and let me tell you, I had an absolute blast. Wedding pictures and trip recaps are soon to come, but today, I’m kicking things off with a look at the Elsa-inspired side braid I rocked as a bridesmaid.

Since the weather on California’s Central Coast can be windy and damp, I knew I wanted something pulled back, yet different from the traditional updo, for my bestie’s beachfront soiree. Being a major fan of Frozen, I fell head over heels in love with this dramatic side braid the minute I saw it on Pinterest. But would my stylist be able to recreate it?

As it turned out, she had a pretty hard time getting it right, having to start over several times and not truly mimicking the look in the photo. Overall, though, I was still happy with the end result, which looked very Elsa-esque when paired with my blue-green dress that featured a series of pretty back ruffles.

What do you think of this style? Would you wear a braid at a wedding? Check out some other unique looks, including braided updos, in my recent Brit + Co post showcasing 20 Stunning Updos to Rock at Every Summer Wedding
