TO CHOP OR NOT TO CHOP

I’ve been a slave to my long locks for quite a while.  I briefly joined the “lob” club in college but my 2001 curly ‘do wasn’t exactly chic.  Now that I’ve been struggling with postpartum hair loss (which I wrote about here), I’m reconsidering these newly wispy strands.  I might be holding on to my long hair because I’m afraid of change (and afraid of that christmas tree head again…eek).  So, in an effort to practice what I preach, and since the “lob” is still very much on trend, I’ve pulled some pics for hairspiration and I’m contemplating the big snip.  When I finally decide cut my hair I’ll post a before and after, but for now, I’m simply going to covet all these other ladies’ effortless looking cuts and pray that whatever I decide to do is at least better then what I’m currently sporting.

February is the month of love and all things roses.  Punch up your regular routine by adding some pink to your makeup routine.  Wearing pink makeup sounds scary (and totally can be!) but using a light touch and the right products, will give you that romantic rosy glow, whether you’re looking for love or have already found it.

Cream Blush
Pink Lip Stain

Swipe a slightly shimmery pink shadow across your lid. Deepen the outer corners by adding definition with a slightly darker shade.  Add black mascara for drama but skip the liner.  Apply a rosy cream blush to the apples of your cheeks.  Finish with a brighter pink lip with a moisturizing stain.
