Defying the Norm

The start of 2013 has apparently made me crazy. This girl's stepping out in ways I've never done before. I'm taking the whole "new year, new me" to a new level. I've never been a huge risk-taker, but am a firm believer in the whole "the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward" mentality. I just don't have the guts to take big risks with my hair, make-up, etc.

However, this year it seems I'm throwing all caution to the wind. I apparently think that I'm invincible and just have this itch to make changes and take some risks. Case in point? I changed my hair yesterday. I know, I know...most of y'all are probably thinking "so what?". Well peeps, my hair has been the same since I was in high school. I'm 29. You do the math. 

I GOT BANGS!!!

I have not had bangs since I was in middle school (I wish I had a pic for y'all of those...it was a poofy sight, let me tell you). So this was A VERY BIG DEAL for me. My hair stylist-kudos Holli Pollard-talked me into them because I was whining in her chair about how bored I was with my look. Then proceeded to almost throw up and cry all over her when she was cutting them. Girlfriend knew what she was talking about though...I got a whole new look. And one that I'm actually liking and feel confident with. Isn't it ridiculous how some stupid scissors can give you a confidence boost?! 

I'm thinking I like this year so far (as opposed to how I felt here). What are y'all doing different to step out in 2013?? 

Also, check out my guest post on Bon Bon's blog. She made me blush. Seriously. How fun and awesome is she?!

Okay, sorry for the insignificant, random, personal life post today. I'm done. One more day left before the weekend! Woop woop!

  5. I found your blog through Bonnie's as well. You are right - there are few working professional blogs out there so this is refreshing!

    Love the bangs! I got thick cut side-swoop bangs a few months ago to help me grow out some re-growth. I think you have given me the confidence to cut them for good! Perhaps your fashion advice will help me get a wardrobe to match the new hair.
