New Looks All Around

So last Friday I decided to be brave and cut my hair to my shoulders!! I really felt like I needed something new and fresh as my hair felt and looked pretty dry and dead no matter what I tried doing to it. I think the last time I actually cut my hair to my shoulders was way back when I was 14? Like 12 years ago! Anyway, I am totally loving it and it feels so lightweight on my head.


























I fully intend to let my hair grow super long next but we'll see. I just might change my mind and keep cutting it this length for a while!

The next thing that received a makeover is my blog! I know, again? Yes! I've been using pre-made templates for a little bit now but I was getting kind of tired of not being able to customize anything with the ones I was using. So I went ahead and designed it myself. It took a very long time learning how to add all of these different html and css codes but I'm quite happy with the way it turned out! It may not be super professional looking but it makes me feel proud knowing that I achieved this design all on my own! I may do a few posts showing you easy ways to achieve custom looks for your blog.

Anyway, cheers to new looks! I have a dresser sitting in my kitchen awaiting its new look right now so i'm going to go work on that! Hope you all have a wonderful day xx

  1. I thought your blog looked different! It looks lovely and well done to you for designing it yourself!
    Your hair looks gorgeous, I had mine cut into a bob a couple of years ago and now my hair is SO healthy and getting much thicker so it's definitely worth it. Sometimes I get the urge to do it again haha!

  12. First of all you are looking very pretty! I like that length on you!
    Also I really like your new blog look. I totally get you with being happy and proud of what you did yourself, which is also my current situation with my new layout. That professional touch will maybe make one's blog look less personal. I feel like ( I may be super wrong) the professional level is where you, as a person won't be able to shine through other than when your words are being read. Am I making a sense? I feel like yours is very nice looking and personal.

  14. I'm thinking it must be coming on two years since I cut my long hair short (shorter, to a shoulder length) and it was the best thing I'd done. It was so much easier to work with, it held it wavy shape better and was so much easier to dry. It's getting a bit long again now, but I'm feeling like I might want to grow it longer this year, but I'll eventually chop it all off again. After all, it's just hair and I like messing about with it :)

  16. It looks so lovely! I got my hair cut short over a year ago and I've loved it ever since! I used to have stupidly long hair, so I fund short hair way less hassle!

    1. Oh big time! Before with my long hair if I would pull it into a ponytail I would get headaches but now with my hair up I can't even feel it!
