...Yes I know these things aren't exactly things you could get someone for their birthday, but they are all things that sometime in my life I want. So wish me luck on achieving getting these things eventually! Whats on your wish list?
So I just realized that this is my 100th post! How exciting! Anywho, today after doing chores and working on my summer class I had some fun with my new hair. I have been wanting to fauxhawk it really bad and I figured "hey, why not?".
You can't really tell from this wonderful quality photo(thanks a lot blackberry) but my make up turned out almost exactly like the girl in the tutorial. Minus the crazy green stripe under the eye and white dots. When I walked into my livingroom to show my cousins my new look one of them immediately said "You look like La Roux!". La Roux, if you don't already know, is the singer of the song Bullet Proof. So I decided to do a for fun cover of the song. Its not the full thing but it was the best I could do in the 5 mins I was willing to spend on it.
So as you all know in the last month I have cut my hair 4 times(yes four it was cut again today). I started out like this first picture and made my way all the way to the last one.
Well I'm going to do a little hair review.
Hair Number 1: Long I had this haircut for a really long time. It was starting to get boring and just annoying(hence the reason for cutting it). I could wear it up if it was being bad, straighten it, or scrunch it with some hair gel. But after awhile it all looked the same.
Hair Number 2: Medium This hair cut was one of my favorites. It was so easy. All I ever had to do was blow dry it real quick and it was done. It looked good with natural wave and it was just perfect.
Hair Number 3: Bob 1 word HORRIBLE. I guess I just hate bobs. This haircut was so hard to handle it had to be blow dryed and straightened everyday and I just don't have time for that!! It flipped out on the ends and would get a couple of wavy pieces around my face. Lets just say I was happy to cut it off.
Hair Number 4: Long Pixie This haircut was great..But not necessarily my style. It was adorable but a little too classy. I only liked it when it was styled really smoothly. It always looked really soft and I wanted it to look more edgy. It was a good haircut for someone working in an office or as a teacher though, its easy and mature-looking.
Hair Number 5: Pixie My favorite! Its pretty short it the back and really choppy and wispy on the top and sides. I'm really excited to try styling it in cool ways. Keep an eye out for pictures :)
Forgive me. Since I've returned from the land of lions(to all of my SA friends...that was a joke) I've been extremely busy. Between going back and forth between parents houses, having family get togethers, church, etc. I have been to busy to blog. Anyway, I have to update you all on a couple things. First of all, I officially have a pixie cut. (continue reading to see pictures)
What do you all think? This is most definitely my all-time favorite haircut out of the three. Also my friend Lauren(22 but you'd never know it) came over Wednesday and we did a cover. Its a mixture of a couple videos we made. We had a great time just being silly and acting like little kids. The cover wasn't perfect. It had a lot of parts and was just really difficult. But it was a lot of fun. The song is Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine.
Keep an eye out for more covers by us. She'll be coming over this Wednesday for another round!
Today my cousin, best friend and I had a quick photo shoot. We got a couple really great pictures!
Saturday my stepmom, sister, and I went thrifting. Thrifting maybe one of my favorite ways to spend my time. There is nothing better than looking through antique shops and finding cool stuff for cheap. We went with a couple things we wanted in mind, like scarves, felt, clips, etc. All of these things were bought to make hair accessories.
The thing about thrifting is it ccould be a hit or miss. You may hit the jackpot and find a million things in one store and nothing in the next. But the great thing about going with people you will have fun with is that you will always have a good laugh.
Our first jiffy store hot dog(it was de-lish)
Our thrifting was a success. In the end between the three of us we had bought 5 pairs of jeans, 12 shirts, 2 vests, 2 pairs of shoes, 3 belts, 17 scarves, 8 fabric pieces(felt, table cloth, etc), a tie, and a dress for $40.
All the stuff..
So Sunday and Monday were spent crafting. With our 17 scarves we have created 4 hair bows, 2 rings, 5 flowers, and 2 pairs of decorative flip flops.
Left side(three bows, white, black and blue flip flop, flower, and ring) were made by me
Right side(three flowers, pink flip flop, hair bow, and ring) were made by Stephanie(my step mom)
All of this girl time has been a lot of fun! I love doing things like this.
Today I got my second summer haircut, did a cover, and had a 5-min-photoshoot. My haircut took another two inches off of my hair. After this I am going all the way short to a pixie cut. Anyway, my quick photoshoot was a little more "model-y" than I thought it was gonna be but I just kinda went with it.
Shirt:Kohlls(?)//Shorts:Goodwill//Belt: Mom's Closet//Shoes: South Africa
I've been wanting to do this cover for a while. While I was in South Africa this song was super popular and I fell in love with it and Adele.
Lately I've been pretty lazy not been wearing make up at all.... I guess in a way I just feel like: its the summer, I want to be able to jump in the pool and not worry about runny make up. Or I want to be able to go outside and not worry about sweating it off. So for the last two weeks I have worn little to no make up all but two times.
Today I stumbled upon a video that made me happy about this recent change. It also made me happy that I almost always wash my face before bed after wearing make up.
Gross right? Anyway I've recently decided that you don't need to look like this to be pretty:
I don't know if its just me but I am perfectly happy looking like plain old me. I've come to find that I don't have to stress over how I look or constantly be worrying about what to wear... Natural beauty is the best kind... So to all girls out there like me... DON'T TRY SO HARD.
Since school let out I've either been in Africa or inside. But today was different. Today was the epitome of the word summer. First of all, I slept in. Now it's not the first time I've slept in this summer but usually I am woken up countless times throughout the morning until I'm so irritated that I just wake up. But today I slept (uninterrupted) until 9:15(WOOHOO!) After that I had to clean a little bit(but that only lasted an hour). I spent my afternoon on the lake. First my step-dad and I went out so that we could get the Jet-Ski's ready for our Fourth of July party. Then once I had completely drained the gas on mine we attached the tube to his and he spent the next hour trying to get me off of the tube. (Let the record show that I never "fell" off. The only time I was in the water was when I caught so much air that the tube flipped upside down.)

Anyway, I would have to say this my favorite way to spend my summer. I ended up with sun burnt arms and legs and weird tan lines (thank you life jacket). But I wouldn't trade it for anything else.
