Cutting My Hair

My hair was at least nine inches long. My mom had been telling me that short hair would look good on me, but I was still super reluctant to cut it. It had been long for years, and I was scared that people wouldn't like it. Plus what if I ended up looking weird? 

I found a picture on Pinterest of the type of style I wanted. Over the next few days, I fully convinced myself that I wanted short hair. My mom made me the appointment, and Friday afternoon I nervously walked into the hair salon. 

Almost an hour later, all my hair was laying on the ground. I only had a little bit of it left. My stylist thought it was absolutely adorable and so did my mom. I was still trying to decide if I liked it or not but the time we got home. 

My brother said I look like Velma from Scooby-Doo (I've been told I look sort of like her now and I guess the short hair completes the look. Next year's Halloween costume maybe??) but it didn't bother me. My siblings and dad said that they liked it. 

I posted a photo on Instagram. Shockingly, it got more likes than what my pictures normally get. One girl commented that it suits me well, and another said that she loves it. 

Now on this Sunday afternoon, I fully like it. It's easier; all I have to do is brush through it quickly and not have to worry about pulling it up in a ponytail or anything like that. It's also much cooler, and is nice when I'm outside on a hot day. 

My thoughts are this: if you want to take a chance, take it! You want to completely change your style? Go for it. Tell your crush that you like him? Awesome. Chop off most of your hair? Sure. Why not? 

If you don't end up taking that chance, then you'll always be asking yourself what if. And it will be something that you'll regret for a long time.

New Posts Will Include...

As I said in my last post, my blog will be including some new things. Hopefully it'll not be just a fun experience for me, but for you guys as well. 


1. Monthly Favorites (songs, makeup, clothes, trends, etc.) 

2. My summer adventures. If I actually have any. I'm kinda lame.

3. Fashion. This is by far what I'm the most excited about. I'll be posting some of my OOTD's, fashion tips that I have, and more. 

4. Shopping Hauls

5. My pets. That night sound kind of stupid, but I have two black labs, two cats, two guinea pigs, and a parakeet so I figure why not incorporate them in here somehow? 

6. My thoughts on life in general 


Starting Over

I've been gone for months. Totally M.I.A. For that I apologize. However, looking back at my old blog entries I realized one thing. 

They kind of suck.

So I figured why not start over? I'm officially on summer break. I'm older now (I'm going to be a freshman this year! Yikes!) and I would like to think that my writing has gotten somewhat better. 

Please bare with me as I start this blog completely over. I hope everyone will keep reading it, but who knows? 

In my next post, I'll write about what my "new blog" is going to include. :)
