Hoodie and Dress Target
Ring my dad
For makeup I did matte browns. I never use mattes I always fear they will settle into lines and age me. I used a peach blush, an orange shimmer gloss.
Day 5 of Shellac
My ring is from my dad. He made it from a cufflink when he was in highschool. It's a pure sentimental over aesthetic piece. He gave it to me with a letter as I was getting on the plane and moving cross country with my mom. Seriously one of the worst days of my life. But now I look it and think of Pop and how it was from his cufflinks and it makes me smile. I couldn't wear it for years. I was too mad too, I didn't want to move away from my dad, gram and pop. But I am back here and Dave and I never would of been together probably. I met him while I was visiting my dad. He went to the private school I would of gone to if I had stayed in NH. I wonder if we ever would of even of been friends. Probably he was awfully damn cute!
Can't quite put your finger on why I look different right? I totally see that something is off too. I think it's the bangs, they throw me off. I'll repost old photos to illustrate. This is what they do naturally. When they are flat down or off to the side that was because I forced them to do my will. I flat iron the cowlick and use product but some days it just isn't cooperating. See this is what I looked like growning up with it.
Even when I can get it to lay down they still split at the cowlick if I don't constantly fuss with them. For photos I arrange them. Hey I never denied trying to only show you my best sides.
For the past year I have been trying to wear them going against the cowlick. I like it but it requires constant touching to keep them in place.
My hair isn't as thick as it was when I was a kid because if it was they would ALWAYS look like this which is my favorite ever.
So this weekend I am so cutting them because they are in my eyes and I touch them all day. I am going to go back to this. It won't be so much though because I am growing our some of the sides.
But don't worry I won't be cutting them myself this time.
I am going to let Dave do it instead. :)
Whew bit loquacious eh? Any plans for the weekend?
Edited to add:
I have been putting companies cruelty free status on my Facebook page as I find them. If you are interested it lives here.
