Hair refresh!

I have been coloring my hair for the past 10 years almost constantly. I rarely have had my natural hair color. Most recently, it has been fairly light blonde. As most people know, lightener (bleach) can do a number on your hair. My hair was fried. Split ends, breakage, frizzy and dry. I decided about a year ago that I would stop lightening it and grow out my natural color. I’ve been trimming it little by little until I had enough grow out to chop off a lot of the lightened hair at once. Now, this isn’t all my natural color still. I ended up adding a semi permanent lavender shade to the ends just to get rid of the brassy color but I’m getting pretty close to my all natural hair! It feels so much softer and healthier after the cut! Here’s a before and after pic:

I love how it looks and feels! Now, I’ll probably try growing out my natural color for a while and leave the nasty chemicals out of it!


Return from my long hiatus/ happy 2017

I know that I barely ever post on here, and haven’t in many many months. I’ll have tons of ideas for blog posts then get caught up in the busyness of everyday life and never get around to them.

The good news, though, is I finally have a phone with a nicer camera AND a tripod for my dslr so photographing blog posts will be a lot easier from now on. (When I do get around to it) 

I also wanted to take this opportunity to talk about this blog and more what I want it to be. I don’t want it to be /just/ about makeup. Or just about any one thing, really. I love to cook, I’m a mom, sometimes I exercise (haha), and I’d like this to be a place where I can share all of that.

I hope you readers (who are very few at this point) enjoy reading my posts, and I hope to have many more this coming year than I did last year. Happy 2017.
