A blog dedicated to a mash-up of everything! A book critique here, a few serious thoughts there. Perhaps a dash of humor, and there we have it! I am follower of Jesus Christ, a reader, and an animal lover. Anything more, you'll have to discover!
In this, my eighteenth year of life, I curled my own hair for the first time ever. Many different cultures go through different rites of passage. My self proclaimed passage into adulthood was this ceremony of the curled hair. It's a big deal, alright? I recently acquired a wand (the curling irons without the clip on them) and I haven't used it until today. Because I lack the required dexterity for pretty much everything, it took me almost two hours to curl my hair. Two stinkin' hours. But I'd say the end result was pretty much worth it, wouldn't you say? And surprise! That's me! I figured what better way to introduce myself to the blogging world than on a day when I'm all gussied up? (Does our modern society use the word 'gussied' anymore? I've lived in the mountains for most of my childhood, I wouldn't know.) I have no special technique at this point to share with everyone. I have no advice other than this: Don't hold the curling iron directly against your face; it hurts. I can say that my extra comfy sweater was from Target, and my scarf was from some unknown shop in L.A. On top of wearing belts with everything, I love scarves. This particular scarf has two different patterns on each half of the scarf. These two patterns gave me great inspiration, and since I got the scarf, I've been mixing patterns in all my other outfits as well. I'm all about matching, but I'm all about matching with flair. Anything to add that extra bit of flair. I'm all about flair. I just like the word flair. Floral and stripes? Great! But try to incorporate some of the same kind of color scheme so that you don't look like a mixed up hippie (unless that's the look you're going for, of course) So now you finally have a face to put to all my ramblings and whatnot. Is there something along the lines of fashion that you've been wanting to try? A blouse that has been sitting in your closet that you just don't think would work on you? A new hairstyle? Some unique makeup look? Just try it. Work with what you have, and maybe you can find a new hobby for yourself. I enjoy putting outfits together and having private fashion shows with me, myself, and I. That's it for now, It was nice to finally see you all face to face! Farewell, readers.
