Packages and Hairstyles

I love getting mail, but who doesn’t!

I received two packages today and they brightened my day.

This one was from Farrah at fairyhealthylife. I didn’t win her giveaway, but she said she would send me something anyway. Holy cow Farrah, you are too sweet! She sent me Starbucks iced coffee beans, a coffee cup, bread and a lovely note. Thanks Farrah, I really appreciated the kind gesture. Aren’t blogger friends the nicest people?

I also received this awesome tumbler from Tervis that says “Foodbuzz Tastemakers.” I can’t wait to make a smoothie and drink it out of this glass.

I’ve been thinking about changing my hairstyle for a while now. My hair has been pretty boring lately. I also don’t get it cut that often (last time was July). I am getting my haircut on Saturday and sort of want to tell the stylist “do whatever you want and give me some side bangs too.” I am at that point where I am plain old fed up with my hair. It gets really thick and boring when I don’t get it cut for a while.

Here are my inspiration hairdos:

Craig prefers this one most, including the length. He loves my hair short. Yes, he is the opposite of most men in his preference for a female’s hair length.

I like Reese’s hairstyle–long layers with side bangs. This preference for her hairstyle is clear if you look at my Pinterest hairstyles board.

I had bangs until I was about 19 and swore I’d never go back. They were way too thick though and just emphasized my round face.

I sort of had side bangs in this funny picture. I think that was a United Colors of Benneton outfit and I remember buying it at Mayfair Mall. I thought I was so fashionable. 🙂


And this is the other time in my life I came close to having side bangs. Maybe it’s the cowlick in the front of my hair, but I remember them not flattening out as much as I had hoped they would. Perhaps this was before I discovered an excellent flat iron though.


I’ll be back on Saturday with some pics of my new hairdo. I’m kind of nervous to make a change, but hair can always grow back.

How often do you change your hairstyle?
