Clothes to Check Out

Hello Darlings!

While I was online shopping I saw a few things I thought you all would like.

Forever 21 has a few shirts/sweaters that have crosses on them. Also, there is a lovely white or black sweater that looks like it was all stitched together. Very frankenstein-ish.

I hope you're all tucked up warm inside, especially those here in the states with that snow storm starting! Finally we're getting some Christmas snow. Sweet! I love that fluffy cold stuff.

Night darlings!

Hey All

Hi Darlings

I just wanted to throw a quick update out there concerning this past month, the upcoming weeks and the new year.

Unfortunately this past week I've been hit hard with a bug, so I'm just praying I'll be feeling well enough to celebrate the holiday with my family, and not quarantined in bed.

After the holiday, I have some work on the road and I won't be returning til after the first of the new year. At that point I'll return with a set blog schedule and posts for all of you.

I pray that each and every one of you enjoy a very merry Christmas, and a happy new year. I hope that all of you can enjoy your family and their company, as well as them enjoying yours, and that you receive something special on Christmas eve/day!

Early Holiday Blessings and have a wonderful rest of the week.


P.S. Here is something to make you laugh :)

Nail Polish Review: OPI I'm so sari

Hello Darlings!

How are all of you doing? I hope you all are well. If you're a student, then I hope your Christmas break finals went by without any major problems and that you can now enjoy a relaxing Christmas break. I personally am not concerned with finals at this point in time, since I left school for this semester to round up some more dough. If I've already mentioned this in past posts, I apologize. My memory is kaputzzz at the moment...

Getting on with tonight's review! I found a lovely lovely glittery teal nail polish. It's everything I hoped for and more. I prefer wearing neutrals and letting my one or two accessories be colorful, or my nails will suffice. However I usually do not paint my nails. They break and chip like poorly made dentures and I can never get over how angry I get at putting all the time and effort into such a beautiful manicure to have it look awful within 48 hours.

I thought that maybe I was just buying crappy polish. Ergo, buy better polish and it chips less. Too True! I'm going to stop being such a penny pincher in the future and buy better quality products in certain situations.

*Tip* For you ladies who also suffer with constantly chipping nails, keep the nail polish off your fingers/toes for the weekend to let them breath, and try a product like Essie Vitamin E Base Coat. I bought mine at Ulta's and it has worked very well with the quality/lasting time of my manicures.

OPI I'm So Sari:

 Also it's nice that while there is glitter in it, it isn't obnoxiously noticeable. I like that it sparks when my hands are in the sun but then you just get that lovely blue hue the rest of the time.
 As a bonus, look at the little guy I found in our barn a few weekends ago! Isn't he adorable? It's a little baby field mouse. He wasn't scared of me at all. He/She just walked around and came close to my shoes to investigate and stare up at my towering self. I wasn't very original when I named him, but I call him timothy. My dad face-palmed himself when I said "But we can just call him tiny tim." I suppose he doesn't appreciate my dry humour. *Sigh*

My grandparents make fun of me, saying I'm so desperate for another pet I've been reduced to kidnapping field mice. Hmph. If only my grandma wasn't so disapproving of animals,I would have the lab or huskie puppy I've been dreaming of for a long time. -tear-

I like cats but I enjoy a more outdoorsy life style (gothic mori girl style?) and dogs better suit my taste of a fellow hiking/adventurous companion.

Have a good night darlings!

updates and early birthday post

Hello Darlings!

Sooo... Tomorrow's my burfdah! Lucky uneven 21. I'm more into even numbers and symmetrical objects... (I've been acting like this gif all day in excitement. Someone slap me back into reality)


I plan to do a outfit/cake post tomorrow. I just feel so bad I haven't posted anything recently.

But I do plan to do two nail reviews, three makeup reviews and a soap and glory review of the shower trip bag full of goodies I bought before this month is over.

I was google scrolling again when I found the perfect cake for tomorrow. Yes, I make my own cakes. No, I don't think it's sad or do I care. Store cakes are usually stale tasting and sickly sweet to me.

I cheated today. I did not make a vegan cake, but only because I didn't feel like driving an hour for fake butter and egg replacer. C'est la vie. One day out of the year doesn't make me a bad person.

Ms. Joanne of made the cutest cake imaginable!
I decided to make all 3 layers pink and added a little purple to one. Then I made a soft cotton candy pink frosting with rainbow star sprinkles, topped with white and pink candles.

Don't ask me why I wanted a sweet lolita type birthday cake. I'm still slightly questioning myself. But still... it's soo cute! :3
tasty peach I think. if this is yours let me know.

Anyways, I still have a few things to do before tomorrow, so have a lovely night darlings.

Damn it darlings!

I'm going to re-read my posts/comments/replies until I learn to spell correctly and not make an ass of myself. I'm trying to comment on others blogs and I can't even  make a literate sentence. I swear I re-read what I type and look at another page and come back to it with fresh eyes and I'm still a klutz.
I'm not going to get anywhere with this blog if I don't have a basic grasp on the english language. I'm a OCD personality type with a 4 year old attention span.

Now I'm going to go back to online shoe shopping. I swear I'll have a legitimate post up this weekend. Also it's going to be my birthday next weekend so I'll have a birthday cake decor post coming. I found a recipe for edible glitter. It will be a glittery doom cake...or something equally nonsensical and crazy for my 21st birthday. Don't forget to bring the marshmellow vodka haha.

Have a good night!

(a still embarrassed) lady.
glitter. just because I can.

All my online purchases have arrived!

Hello Darlings!

I hope you are all feeling well and had a good start to the week. Personally I'm feeling a little under the weather and stayed home overdosing on cocoa, toast and hot broth. I only went out to buy some tea and more soup...and makeup. The highlight of my day was that my big box from Sephora came today (it weighed almost 3 pounds!) and as a bonus surprise my purchase from came too. They have infamously fast shipping! I only buy from their store when they have coupons on the newletter I receive in my email. I got 25% off every item for black friday. win/win I say!
amber/purple single flare colorfront pyrex plugs

Here's a quicky list of what I bought. I thought I would do an in depth review of everything later. I wouldn't want to punish all of you with up close photos of my sickly face plastered in makeup.

I bought:
  • soap and glory shower trip set
  • rosebud perfume co. rosebud salve,
  • opi "i'm so sari" nailpolish, (and I qualified for the makeup pouch full of 14 free samples)

I'm really happy with all of these so far. I bought the set to try out a few different products at once and as a bonus I needed another bag anyways. The nailpolish is absolutely fabulous as well. Plus the sexy motherpucker lip plumping lip gloss looks amazing on my lips and it smells great. When I went to walgreens I grabbed some garnier bb cream and the andrea modlash false lash starter kit so those will be a part of the review as well. I hope you all have a good tuesday tomorrow and you will here from me soon for a makeup/ bath product review.

Good night Darlings!

Vegan blabbing and a photo drop.

Hello Darlings.

Hello Hello! I swear darlings I haven't forgotten a single one of you, or about my precious blog. It's simply that work has picked up quite a bit! I need to work out a schedule so I can keep up with regular posts. 
How are all of you? A while ago I mentioned a little road trip I went on and I thought I would share a few photos and since I knew that wouldn't take up the whole post I thought I would talk a little about being vegan. So if you're interested, scroll scroll scroll! :)

 One of the many rivers/lakes we crossed on the two hour trip. It was too pretty to pass up a shot.
Cheddar's Restaurant.
 Can you believe they ate 6 onion rings and there were still over 20 left on the plate? It was insanity! Also realize we ordered the small appetizer size and this is considered a small. Mind boggling!!
The Frankenstein caramel apple I wanted to buy, but it was a halloween special and it was still a week away. Boo! ... hoo hoo. :( Actually I bet it wouldn't taste that good because of the fondant? I can't tell if it's that or dyed chocolate but that stuff is usually too sickly sweet or fake tasting to actually gnaw or digest. But I give it a 7 for cuteness.

moar GIFS here!
speaking of cute...

Can anyone explain to me why I'm getting such huge gaps when I add gifs like this? It's odd. Thanks in advance darlings!

First off let me throw out a tiny disclaimer of some sort. In all honestly, I haven't been a vegan long so if you ask me about a certain product I may not know it, but I would be happy to test it out and talk about it. However my "noob-ness" of sorts shouldn't count me out since any ounce of knowledge at all is still knowledge! :)

For instance, I made vegan banana bread today and it was incredibly tasty. It just happened to work out for me because my bananas were getting too ripe and my papa has a lot of stevia around because he's diabetic. (vegans don't eat white sugar but do use natural sweeteners like stevia, agave or sucanat.) For those of you who aren't aware white sugar is processed by filtering it through bone char. "( charcoal made from animal bones*) uhm, gross. [[]]*
Crunchy but moist 100% vegan banana bread. yum!

I'm not going to lie to you, breaking my sugar addiction was a very hard thing to do. However now that I do not need sugar like I used to, I personally can feel how much happier my body is without the sugar rushes and crashes or needing a sugar "fix."

Also keep in mind it gets easier the longer you stick with it. I've been modifying my diet for over a month and taking baby vegan steps along the way. I promise my blog won't turn into a "Eat this! Not that!" manifesto and I won't bring it up unless I have something relevant to talk about or another recipe to share.

Have a great week darlings!

Lady :)

The Goth Challenge Day Four: Name a stereotype or cliche you can relate to.

Hello Darlings.

Exciting news, I cut all my hair off. I'll share photos tomorrow. I know how far behind I am in posting. But I've been in a funk recently. I felt like I was going through the most basic motions but I just felt dead. It's hard to describe but I go through moods like that from time to time. Now I'm back and ready to spam your blogger dashboards once again, hah.

 Name a stereotype or cliche you can relate to.

  •  I love cemeteries. I enjoy walking through them and looking for them whenever I'm on the road. I find most of them have pretty landscaping and they are always so peaceful.(let's go have a cemetery picnic! :D )
  • You'll find striped stockings in my sock drawer and yes, I do enjoy wearing them. I actually found a pair the other day I want to go and buy. (green and black striped. How cute! )
  •  I definitely relate to the "creative" bone that we're supposed to be born with. You could lock me away for years and years but as long as you kept the paper and pens/paints/ etc. coming I could care less. [dramatic I know but oh so true.]
 I LOVE halloween shopping. That's because you get to stock up on all your day to day goodies for half off.


  •  I love watching shows and reading books about the paranormal. Trust me, I haven't missed a Ghost Adventures episode yet.
  • I enjoy the vampire subculture, but not like I used to. I've read the Ann Rice series but other than that I find they're too romanticized today and aren't portrayed as they actually are. ( I like books like the Encyclopedia of the undead... Which I own. :) )
 Good night darlings. Stay warm and snug in your lil' coffins.

Halloween Makeup

Hello Darlings,

I hope you're all enjoying your Saturday night. I know it's a silly thought but... I was looking forward to having trick or treaters tonight. My aunt's house is way up on a mountain here so we call it "Halloween on the mountain" but I didn't hear a peep all night.

I got all dolled up too.

watching gremlins!

my boring 10g plugs.

the line is a melting forehead crack.
Not fantastic but I was happy with it and it was fun to play around and paint my face.
So! While I wasn't planning on writing the fourth part of the goth challenge tonight I do plan to write tomorrow. Sound good?  Have a fun rest of the night and enjoy watching the gremlins like I am right now. It's distracting me from a large bowl of uneaten Halloween candy. I'm so tempted!

Otherwise than that darlings I hope you're having fun watching all the halloween movies. I watched the Addams family the night before last, beetlejuice last night and gremlins tonight. No I really do have a life, believe me! Oh come on, don't roll your eyes at me like that, I just like watching halloweenish movies.

Life's no fun without a good scare!

The Goth Challenge Day 3 – When did you come out of the Goth closet? (If you didn't then simply discuss the topic)

Hello Darlings!

Are you excited that it's almost the weekend? Halloween is a week away, how exciting!
I've thought about what I wanted to be for this year and decided I would just be a skeleton and wear that skeleton t-shirt I bleached.

Not very exciting I know but for some reason I'm not really in the mood to get all dressed up this year. Leave me a comment on what you've decided to be, I'd love to hear what ooky-spooky costumes you are going to be terrorizing the kiddies with! ;)

Ok, so let's get on with post 3 of the goth challenge. What'dya say?

When did you come out of the Goth closet? (If you didn't then simply discuss the topic)

When did I come out? Hm. Well I attempted to come out once, maybe five years ago? It didn't go so well. After I decided that I was just going to do whatever made me happy and if those around me didn't understand after talking to me about it, well, there was nothing more I could do.

I believe I tried to come out of the 'goth closet' in high school. This was during my mall goth phase. My family was always very vocal about what I wore. "You don't need combat boots!" "Why are you wearing black polish? "Take off those ugly lace glovelets!" ALWAYS something. Personally I think my ears are still healing from being talked off back in those days.

I remember being very diplomatic about the whole ordeal. I made my mom and myself a cup of tea, tried to sit down at the table and just talk. Yeah, that went well. Not. I was seen as a child making irrational, ugly decisions about my appearance and embarrassing the whole family while I was at it. Encouraging, accepting words right? x)

It was really degrading to be honest. I thought I looked pretty and was really showing my true self, so to be told otherwise and have my emerging sense of identity scoffed at was a blow.

Does anyone know the link to this? Saw it on tumblr.

Nowadays I'm a tough ol' bird and whenever someone says something about me I just smirk and stare at them with a look that says, "I don't remember asking you." Plus it amuses me to no end to think that this stranger is so egotistic that they believe their opinion should matter AT ALL.

The last time I checked opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and quite frankly they reek!

Alright darlings, I'm out of here. I have to get up at four in the morning to be on the road for my college visit. The town is a hour ahead of me time wise and it's a two hour drive. Wish me luck. :)
If not, I hope to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandpa and not screaming in terror like his passengers in the backseat. That's right, a car joke. It's pretty funny right? huh, huh? :D

No, I know car crashes are nothing to laugh about. My cousin almost died in one many years ago, as well as my dad. So please everyone always put your safety first and keep your attention on the road at all times.

Much Love,

The Goth Challenge Day Two: Share photos and experiences of your babybat days.
  Hello Darlings!  (how I felt writing this post ^^^)

How was your day? Currently I'm still on vacation and in two days I'll be doing a college visit. I plan to make a mini post about my road trip today with a few funny photos I collected.

Now on to the actual post. :)

Share photos and experiences of your babybat days

Well, first off I was a little iffy about writing this post. I get a bit moody when talking about my past. Also to be honest I hated taking photos when I was younger. I had a serious phobia of the camera, I swear. Nowadays it isn't so bad but I still shy away from the camera from time to time. So I hope I get a small round of applause for actually finding a few photos. Plus I seriously deleted every single image of my face I could find back then. It's baffling.


These photos are from my high school "babybat days." I don't have any any earlier than my sophomore year although I was  dressing darker in eighth grade. Also please realize that while these may not be the greatest they do show my "oh so artistic" state of mind and how I believed I could never smile or how over the top makeup was mandatory. You'll see the photo I'm talking about.

Commence my embarrassment x)
my baby. I miss him. No smiling and black shirt/jeans

me posing with a mirror. But I love that cateye. What a pro haha.

Moving on to experiences. Well I'd say I had really mixed experiences. Some funny and some just plain hell. I still don't know why but I'm one of those personality types that could dye my hair blonde; wear a pink dress with matching heels, smile all day and someone would still point out I have a "dark personality." I bring this up because I never once said I was goth when I was growing up. I simply didn't care. I wore what I wanted and basically ignored everyone around me when I realized being nice and making friends was a totally fruitless attempt. So when my classmates would strike up a conversation with me (which was basically never) or made a snide comment or remark the word 'goth' would frequently pop up. One experience of mine was that every day when I walked into my sophomore math class one guy would ask me "You're goth aren't you?" as I passed him to get to my seat. I hope you can appreciate how annoyed I would get at being labeled something I hadn't declared or really didn't care about. I only saw the term as something new to get tortured for.

Not to be dramatic or depressing but the majority of my experiences were really shitty! I was called weird, a freak. I'd be the butt of a rumor or a joke constantly, get poked in the back for a whole class period (and even when I politely asked a teacher to move I'd be denied) and the poking would continue. (I had to endure a week of it because whenever I moved seats the kid behind me would kindly give their seat to my taunter until I turned around and practically screamed at the guy when we were in the middle of class. After that I was deemed "crazy" by everyone. I would have my locker trashed and my things stolen. I literally would hide in one of the lesser used bathrooms and sit in there with my ipod and a book for as long as I could.

I was even mocked when I spoke. It got so bad I hated speaking in front of the class because they would make faces and mock me getting tongue tied. It continued until senior year. I actually stopped mid-presentation once, burst into tears and just walked out. Because I was told no one wanted to hear my voice and I was better off being unseen and unheard. So I definitely can empathize with those still in school or who are still going through crap like this.

I plan to feed them to oogie boogie >:)

So, happy experiences... I don't want to leave this post on a sad story like that. Oh! There was a guy who was nice to me. One time I was wearing black and white striped tights, and he goes "It isn't Halloween yet." I "wittily" replied, "Haven't you heard that every day is Halloween? Besides I like them." He then continued, "I like them too." 
Another time we were both in the office, and I got yelled at and written up for excessive eyeshadow. When I saw him again by our lockers he said "I don't think you have too much on. It looks cool."
I also got to know our school janitors really well and they were protective of me. My art teacher also spent a lot of time talking with me and spent more time on my projects than the others. 

I look back now and thank the heavens for those small pieces of kindness in my life and my friends who kept me afloat or I don't know how bitter and twisted I would have turned out. Actually I'm going to spread a little loving on them right now. I hope you found my post of some worth and if not at least I hope you know I'm here anytime to listen and empathize with you if you're going through something like this.

pacificari et stabiliri,

The Goth Challenge! Day 1: How did you come across the subculture?

Hello Darlings!

I hope you're all doing quite well and you enjoyed this weekend. I've been thinking about what to write about today, I've been itching to do a post all weekend but... well the adjective 'busy' is a complete understatement! I crashed a wedding, had the most amazing cup of coffee (ever heard of siphon coffee?!) and saw a random deer head on the side of the road. Taxidermy prank? :)

I realized yet again I hadn't charged my itouch which means no photos. I'll go put myself in the corner and shake my head at such shamefulness.

All this made me realize I've been shamelessly stalking the 'goth challenge' posts and that I need to stop talking and start posting. In a roundabout way this should all make sense. I'll let you figure all my nonsense out. 

First here's two links referring to the challenge: and then Amy on posted her own.

 How did you come across the subculture?

Well, I suppose I came across the subculture in little bites. For as long as I can remember I've always felt the most comfortable in black outfits and listening to dark music and things like that. In the beginning I didn't know what "goth" was [pitiful right?] I felt like it was an ideal right outside my grasp but I would be happier being a part of it than out of it. In middle school I was the new girl so I literally moved from a conservative community to a more liberal area. This allowed me to meet a lot of new friends who eagerly threw me into the pool of books, music, movies,websites and clothing that I had been shielded from but had already dug up on my own. So that was a time of social networking that I instantly soaked up.

the new girl!?!

In highschool I met my older sister figure. I'll label her "Koko" which was one of her actual nicknames. I think she was a major influence in my desire to fine tune my babybat outfits whenever we weren't totally decked out in our punk weekend looks. [[We had a school uniform. On most days I wore black tights or black and white stripped stockings with converse and a black beaded and red lace cross from hot topic. Hoorah for my clothing sensibility. Hair and makeup was a whole other issue!]]

I realize I jump terms, claiming I looked like a babybat but I wasn't one and then I was "punk" or this and that. You have to realize back then I didn't realize how broad the goth community was. I felt I didn't fit into the mold, or was told I didn't [whole different story] and I suppose that was and still is a side affect of kids being fooled by the idea of clicks in school. Goth cheerleaders? Unheard of. goth president of the school board? Unthinkable! If only I knew back then you can identify with something and yet still be an individual. I sit here and seriously wonder where my brain went for those four years...

Anyways I decided to fully step into the subculture when I was music hunting one Friday night. I realized all the music I listened to in high school was considered 'goth.'[I am a big Sisters of Mercy fan just an 'fyi']
Also I suppose when every single person already knows you are and yet you deny it, then it is just getting silly. I don't mean to say people calling me 'goth' made me decide to do "join" but there were so many aligning points I didn't see why I had waited so long to be a part of something that brings me so much joy. Especially being a part of something that just comes naturally and feels, well, right.

I hoped you enjoyed my post darlings.

Have a great night

Lady L.

DIY'S and Vacation

Hello Darlings,

I'm trying not to jump up at this moment and send my computer flying, the Time Warp just popped up on my pandora. I really love the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Actually, I missed going to the live performance that was a half hour away from me because of work. I was and still am beyond bummed.
Submitted by: jaydodd
Oh Tim Curry how I love you. x)
Anyways, I plan to post photos of two skirts I dyed and then make that Portland Black Lipstick Co. makeup review I promised in the beginning. No, I haven't forgotten. I swear I haven't. Not to mention I have to finish painting those sandals. I guess I won't have them to wear down south on my upcoming trip, 2-3 days away mind you. It's beyond chaotic. I still have to pack! At least I cleaned my room and did all my laundry. When I was a kid my mom would pack half clean/half dirty clothes because and I quote, "Your "insert family member" has a laundry machine, so why not use it?" We all know that means by the time you roll up to your relative's house you have a bag of 100% dirty clothes. Ugh.

Actually I'm going to stop there because I'm getting grossed out. I hate wearing dirty clothes. I'm not vain, I just don't like the feeling and not to mention the potential smells dirty clothes carry. It's not like I won't touch them or get squeamish, that would be rather ridiculous. I just like to take care of myself and that extends to the things I own.

So... I don't know if there will be a post in the next two days, but I will stock up on photos so while I'm on vacation I won't totally neglect my blog. Actually I doubt it'll be neglected at all. I'll be going down south; good old Tennessee, and my grandparents share my love of the later hours so that means I'm free to write in the day and then party the night away.


However it's going to be weird changing from cold weather here to warm there. So I'll have to break out my summer clothes to keep from melting and buy a bottle of sun screen. That's doable. Having to wear less makeup and deal with frizzy hair? Grudgingly doable. Finding out the I'll be an hour or two away from a Coheed and Cambria Concert with the 80% possibility of not being able to go? Just plain torture.

Back to the main idea. Here's what I was thinking about the line of posts.
1.) Those skirts and a mini diy
2.) diy sandal post / outfit
3.) hair / vacation post(s)
4.) baking and whatever artsy things my big sister figure and I do
5.) Concert?!?!
6.) outfit / makeup review
7.) probably will start the goth challenge when I get back. It looks interesting to me.

Good night darlings,
"TGIF," Lady

Hair & Color Envy

Hello Darlings.

How are you? Right now I’m listening to “A Night on Bald Mountain” by Modest Mussorgsky. I really love this musical score. Is anyone else a big Russian Classical Fan? I have three separate stations on Pandora for music like that. Symphony, Symphony Classical and then Opera. All those stations are oddly smashed in between stations like “The CruxShadows, The Misfits and Ludo on my Pandora haha. Anyways, I thought today I would talk about hair. I’m trying to think of a schedule for my blog without making a ton of personal posts. Yes I think they’re fun, but this isn’t my diary.

First off, I don’t mind outing myself. No, not in that way. I mean I’m a dork. A big dork. A huge dork! You’re talking to the girl who printed out a photo of Kadaj from Final Fantasy and walked into her hair appointment saying “Cut it exactly like this.” What I really wanted was his hair color, hah. So I’ve done cute stuff with my hair and I’ve done dorky stuff. Preferably I don't want to go back to dorky.

I’m bringing up hair because I’ve just been really bored with this messy, wavy curly mess on top of my head.  I’ve had it short so I can spike it in back and left it long to style doll-like ringlets; I’ve had it magenta, blond and black, red, hot pink and  then green streaked. I’ve also enjoyed many a v-fringe and two-tone hair.

For those of you who have an under shave I think that’s my next hairquest, and then onto a mohawk. But I’m not doing it this time around. Why? Well, I want a pixie. A pink or lavender pixie to be specific. I doubt my upcoming part-time job [on top of my other job –sigh-] would approve of such hair hues though. I might become a lawyer’s secretary. This is why I don’t get to do fun things, haha.

However one day I will indulge my inner child with Miwako pink hair. She’s a manga character from Paradise Kiss. One of my few favorites.

  I love color, but only when it pertains to my hair. It's odd. 
Here's three more photos to illustrate my color-love.
All three ladies have gorgeous hair and I thank them for posting their photos so others can have inspiration for beautiful bright hair like them. I really would like to have all three. Well two, although I doubt the orange/red would look good on me. It's a shame since I really am a sucker for hues like that. But I don't love the washing out; staining of shirts [wait, how can I stain black shirts?!], pillowcases and hair towels. Ugh. I didn't just shell out $20 to stain my tub. See, I have really thick hair so I have to buy extra dye just to make sure I have it all uniformly saturated or I'd have spots where I ran out of dye and I'd look like an idiot who didn't know how to color her hair. But I'll take that over my mousey brown super dull hair shade any day. Well most days.

I just realized I meant to talk about hair as in style and not color and color has dominated my post. Way to go self, you're really paying attention aren't you? 

So have any of you sported a pixie recently? At all? I'd love to hear from those who have had the cut and what they think about it. I can only look at so many stupid teen magazine photos of pixie cuts. I can only scroll through google for so long.

Actually I have done more than look at photos. I've read about adjusting to the cut, how to style the cut and how to avoid the mullet stage and not have an awful time growing it out. Oh and I've read about actually growing the cojones and just doing it instead of psyching myself up and then running away from the scissors when the time comes, haha. Yes I actually read that. It's sad.

I personally think I need the hair change because I've been a little too attached to my hair recently. I wasn't like this in high school. Hair was just hair and I really miss that attitude. Supposedly I've "rediscovered" my femininity and feel like I won't be as girly without my hair. Yes, that old debate. BUT if I'm running around in skirts and dresses all day then why do I need that hair? Since when did I care about being feminine in the eyes of others in the first place? And if guys decide to hit on me or not hit on me because of a certain hair length should I care? All I do is throw it up in a bun day after day. It just sits there plotting ways to tangle, get stuck in my spiral plugs and annoy the hell out of me. Stop me before I take a pair of scissors to my hair right now! [again!] I make a terrible hair-cutter outside of shaving my dad's head. 

So.. in the next week there should be a few before/after photos of what I decide to do with my hair.

Have a good night Darlings.
