In my humble opinion, the best braids are also the easiest – especially when you are doing the braiding yourself! I love little braiding "cheats" and faux braids that give you the look of more complicated styles with half of the work. This double braid is definitely one of those easy cheats! It's a fun style that, even if you're new to braiding, you should be able to achieve, and... Continue reading

Hi, everyone! I'm taking over Elsie's favorite natural products series this week since she is busy finishing up a new eCourse she's been working on. Trying to go a less toxic route over the past year can be challenging at times, so it's always exciting to share and talk about new products I love whenever I find them! It's been a little challenging to find good nail polishes that I... Continue reading

Thank so much! Currently the "sleepover" headboard is in my garage. I was thinking I might sell it in a garage sell (still thinking on if I should have one) or put it in Craigslist or something. Idk. Are you located in Springfield MO? If so email me: emma AT abeautifulness DOT com

I am so stoked to share my guest bedroom makeover with you guys today. Elsie and I worked on this makeover together, emailing ideas back and forth, because 1.) I respect her opinion, and 2.) her and Jeremy are actually the guests who use this room the most when they come back to Springfield to visit or work since their move to Nashville. So it seemed only fitting that she... Continue reading

Today I get to share my best tips on one of my favorite beauty topics, brows! I'm convinced brows make the look, and I love the trend of a fuller, bolder, more natural looking brow. If someone were to ask me what three steps in my makeup routine I would do if I could only do those three steps for the rest of my life, I would pick brows, mascara... Continue reading

Well, it's new so I don't know yet! I was surprised at how well my painted rug held up over the year before we moved, but any paint job that is outside and walked on will probably need an occasion touch up but I"m ok with that :) Laura

It's always bittersweet to move from one house to another. With our new house in Nashville we moved to last year, there are definitely a few things I like a lot better about the new place (more space, better bathroom layouts, more natural light) and a few things I wasn't as thrilled about (smaller closets and no kitchen counter space to name a few). One of the things I really... Continue reading

As you know by now, we are full-fledged Plant Ladies. Ain't nothing going to stand in the way of me and my weekend plant shop run. :) I am having so much fun slowly turning our home into a greenhouse. When my husband asks if we have enough plants yet, I just stare at him blankly... OF COURSE NOT. I love all plants, but definitely have a soft spot for... Continue reading

Hi Susan, Our app does work on most Android devices. If you are able to update your operating system that will probably solve your issue. If you have any more questions, email us here- https://acolorstory.com/support/ Thanks so much!! Elsie
I found mine on Etsy. I ordered more than I needed and am considering other projects to use up the rest of the pieces. -Mandi

Oh wow, I'm so surprised by your review. I use the app every single day (a lot of the time with a one filter edit at 100% opacity) and I absolutely love it. With that said, we are working to improve the app with every single update! Your feedback is always appreciated. xx- Elsie
Awesome!!!
Hey Jessica! We tried a design where you could see the numbers, but it was too cluttered. We opted to just use the dots because it made SUCH a cleaner design. The only way you can see the *exact* percentages you use is when you save your edits at the end. With that said, I recommend just eyeballing it. We share people's percentage to give a general idea of how they edited. But since each image is different it really doesn't matter if you get the exact number someone else did. :)) Hope that helps! xx! Elsie
Right?! Rosie is so incredibly talented! -Elsie
Really? What part was confusing? We're here to help! xx- Elsie

It's that time of year again! Back-to-school shopping was always the dreaded event as a kid or teenager as it signified the end of summer freedom, but at least you got to pick out some extra cute notebooks and a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper to ease the pain. Just because you're an adult now, who says you can't join in on the fun and treat yourself to some goodies anyway?... Continue reading

One of the big reasons we opted against the VSCO or Instagram model of filtering that doesn't technically apply a filter until you save is because we knew we wanted to be able to stack filters! Mix and match, save, and make your own flair. So we're bringing in another AMAZING A Color Story user and master mural-hunter, @rclayton, to talk about her favorite filter combos that can offer a...

Hmm, no I never have. Sounds interesting. I could see how it might help the marinade to soak in a bit more but I'm not too sure. Now you've got me curious! I'll have to try that before the next time I marinate some tempeh to see if I think it makes a difference (enough to make it worth the extra step anyway). -Emma

As a mostly vegetarian, fajitas is a go-to order of mine when at a Mexican or Southwestern style restaurant. It's an easy thing to get vegetarian. It usually consists of stir fried peppers and onions, maybe with other vegetables thrown in if I'm lucky. Add some beans and guac to this, and I think it's a pretty satisfying meal. At home we make fajitas often since it's one of those... Continue reading
