Stepping Out

Now, let it be know that I'm all about individual style. I love people who march to the beat of a different drummer, and their off-beat style. I'm all for a different looking top or a cool pair of pants. But this my dear readers, is a look that I cannot support...

No, no. I am not referring to the scantily clad woman gardening who is destined for a terrible ankle injury and a nasty sock tan. I am referring to her horrendous footwear. 
Just when you thought that the haunting memories bounding off to summer camp in the newest sweetest pattern of Teva's were behind you, the designers over at Grey Ant decided it would be a good idea to team up with Teva to create, and I quote, "the most daring mash-up of the decade." Daring, perhaps, but only due to the fact of the horrible heckling and possible rotten tomatoes thrown your way due to said mash-up. And adding insult to injury, did I mention that they're $330?!? Ok, I'm done.

Banged Up

For the last few years I've had serious hair envy...

 I fell in love with fringe bangs but have had enough bad haircuts (e.g. a mullet) to understand that my naturally frizzy & wavy hair had it's limitations...

 But still, I pined away at how girlish yet flirtatious fringe bangs are...

Until I took my hair destiny into my own hands (or a very capable hair stylist's hands) and got a brazillian blowout...

 And my very own fringe bangs to match...

So my dear readers, what do you think?

Honestly, I kind of think that I look like a different person. And I like it.

Have you ever taken a major hair leap and loved the results?

An Incredible Love

 I apologize for my absence from blogging. Honestly, last week I was just being a lazy blogger. This week I've been supporting my best friend who is going through one of the most awful things imaginable. On Sunday her husband was suddenly killed in a hunting accident. I want to respect her privacy during this difficult time but what do want to talk about is the amazing love that existed between Bianca and Clinton. I have known Bianca for 7 years and I can say, without a doubt, that the last three years with Clinton have been her happiest. He was a cowboy from Ft. Worth and she was a city girl from Jersey, who had very little in common except for their immense love for each other, but honestly they didn't need anything more. Clinton was an absolutely wonderful guy and it is tragic to lose somebody so caring and so full of life at a young age. So friends, I ask that you keep my sweet sweet friend Bianca and Clinton's family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this incredibly difficult time. There has also been a scholarship created in Clinton's name at Texas Tech (his alma mater) for any of you who wish to donate in his memory. Any bit would help and Clinton would love that somebody else could go to the school that he loved so much because of donations. Clinton James Colgin Memorial Scholarship, Texas Tech Foundation, Inc. PO Box 41081, Lubbock TX 79409-1081
