Hair Today...

Having a good or bad hair day does effect you. Don't deny it, we know the truth. That is why when I've decided to change a few things in my life I started with a hair cut. There is just nothing better than a good haircut. So, for the next few posts I will be discussing hair cuts, products, maintenance, and over-all health cand care. Since I've already had a hair cut and feel great about it I will start with cuts.

The photo to your left is Bethany Joy Galeotti, or in this photo, Haley James Scott. If I could pull off those bangs I would in a second. This was probably my favorite hair style from One Tree Hill and I still love it. For those of you not addicted to this drama, this was season four. We're now on to Season 7... not that you wanted to know.

My hair actually use to be this long, but I wanted a change and so after seeing the photo on your right of Natalie Portman, I decided to cut it. Mine never did quite look like this, but it was super cute all the same, once I got some of it to grow out. You see I didn't get my stylist on the day I decided to cut my hair (appointment mix up), but I was too eager to change it and went with someone else! BIG MISTAKE!! That is why I urge you to find a good one and stick with them! Lesson learned!

Feeling Good: Everyone has a bad hair day.

Looking Good: Everyone can look this good with the right sylist.

Talk About Being Beat Up!

Dear friends, this week was not a very good one for me. I don't know if you've experienced this before but coming home after being gone a year is a tough job. I had no idea it would be this hard, but yet here I am. This week certainly didn't help...

First off on Tuesday I was called back for a second interview only to be told two hours after having it conducted that I didn't have enough experience. That was hard rejection. I have over ten years experience in the office realm, but alas it was not to be. I want to follow God's will but my financial resources are being depleated and well... I don't like that.

Then I tried on clothes and it turns out my chest is still rather large and therefore anything I tried had a gaping hole where the button should be covering that area...

Next, (now that I'm rejected and fat), I read this article that speaks of being married early and having children before your thirty is actually healthy and better for you. So now I'm rejected, fat, single, childless and at risk for my life ending because of these things....

On top of all that my regular out-on-the-town Friday night has been cancelled because my friends are going out of town.... no, it has not been an easy week.

Feeling good: I still have some employement opportunites I can explore.
Looking good: For the interview I found this jacket at Faith21 (plus size of Forever21), it fits, and I look adorable in it You can look at here (Obviously got mine in black.):

I'm baaack! And Other Travel Condrums.

Ha ha. No I'm not the exorist, although if I didn't get any sleep... Not the point of this. So, I'm finally back home. I have no plans to leave any time soon. What this means is I'm in the "I'm Back! Crap, I have to unpack" stage. I hate that stage. My favorite is packing, getting ready for the trip. That is fun. I could care less about unpacking, but unfortunately it is something that must be done.

I have come up with an unpacking guide for those who feel about unpacking the way I do. Today's topic is the first thing you should do when you get ready to unpack. That is, assess the vacation you just had. (I usually take a day for this).

For example, I went and stayed with my aunt and her family. I had a blast. We went up and down the coast and I got to see some beautiful homes. However, her air-conditioning wasn't working in her vehicle so we had to roll the windows down. And, as and idiot, I didn't put on sun block. So my arm got nice and burnt/tan. The kicker? I had a t-shirt on so I got an amazing Farmer's Tan!

Photo Proof:

Sad isn't it? The even worse part? The other arm looks normal. :rolls eyes: How this continually happens to me I'll never know, but now you get to share in the experiences that are my life.
Tomorrow I'll show you my room, which should scare the snot out of you, and we'll take the next step in my guide to un-packing. Really, you shouldn't do it right away, that's overwhelming and scary. Mine allows you to get it all done, and at a managable rate. Believe me you'll thank me later for it.
How to Look Good: Embrace the farmer's tan. If anyone gives you grief point out that you were on an incredible vacation. What have they done?
How to Feel Good: Know that noe one is going to be coming to your house any time soon, so you have time to clean, and keep people interested in your vacation photos. You'll get the place clean soon enough!
