Hair Saga

Hello friends and happy Sunday!

I thought I’d share some of my continuing hair ideas.

Most of you know I have hashimotos and struggle with fluctuating hair loss. A few months ago I purchased a couple of Halo extensions.

One problem I have is that if I’m not wearing the extensions, I need to pull my own hair up into a clip. Some of my hair is long and some about chin length due to frequent hair loss and then regrowth; it’s a constant struggle with autoimmune disease.

My thought is that I will cut my own hair so that sometimes I can have my own hair “out and about” or wearing a hat (which I love to do but can’t with the extensions) and sometimes I’ll wear my extensions (have long hair).

What do you all think of this? I know many people that wear different hair pieces depending on their mood.

One idea is this type of pixie cut which I’ve had before and I like. Another is Cate Blanchett’s hair in Oceans Eight (a new movie with Sandra Bullock). I’m leaning toward the blunt cut (Cate’s cut). It’s different and fun and then when I want long hair I can put on my extensions.

Here are some pictures to show what I mean. (Pixie cut courtesy of Victoria Beckham) I hope this helps anyone else who might be struggling with hair loss too. (BTW watch this movie-Oceans Eight, cause I love Cate Blanchett’s style and will be trying to copy her in some ways IRL 😂🤣)

Urban Decay Beached How-to

Hello friends!

On this lazy Sunday I thought I would share my morning of experimenting with makeup!

A month or so ago, I got a new palette from Ulta-Urban Decay- Beached compact. It’s some really bright sandy, coral, and turquoise shades. It’s super pretty.

Then about a week ago, I saw an ad on IG for makeup but the colors were similar to my new compact so I thought I would experiment and see what happened.

Here are several videos of the look. Hope you like!

Saturday Makeover Fun

Hello Friends!

How is everyone doing on this fine rainy cloudy gray Saturday?? I know it’s kind of a yucky weather day right?? I love Saturdays and didn’t have much on my “to do” list today except a couple loads of wash, which I almost do with my eyes closed LOL

I laid in bed as long as I could; I actually woke at 7:30am…yuk right?? But I laid there for another 40 minutes or so and then got up. Then I thought I could do some fun self care!

I put on a special exfoliating mask from Elemis: Papaya Enzyme Peel and wandered around the house; fixed my favorite coconut/cacao shake and loaded the dishwasher. Then I made an instastories live video about my skin care routine. Check on Instagram, I hope you like it.

Then I had some fun with different eye colors! I will explain!

Awhile ago I bought Stila Magnificient Metals liquid eye shadow in Sunset Cove; it’s a pretty pink shadow but until today I hadn’t got a chance to figure out how to wear pink on my eyelids! ha! Now is my chance!

Last year I got a free gift from Ulta: a NYX “Happy Birthday” eye shadow palette that I haven’t as yet used very much, the colors are bright.

This week I also went to Ulta to pick up some lashes, I use fake glue on lashes daily and my regular supermarket has been out for awhile. Ulta had bogo 50% off so I grabbed a couple packs, only to get home and realize one of the lash packs was the fullest, longest lashes I had ever seen! How am I gonna wear that on a daily basis! LOL I don’t go out an party so figure that one out! (But here comes Saturday and you know I can do what I want 😉

I put the Sunset Cove on my lids and an orange color in the crease and above my lid. I then used just an ivory under my brows. I didn’t put eye liner on today because I’m trying to highlight the fancy eye color and lashes! (Plus it’s a rainy day and I put my hair up, so focusing on my eyes is only logical-I totally think like a Vulcan right??)

I then glued on these huge, full, long fancy eye lashes, put on thicker lower lash mascara (I really think my lower lashes are longer than my upper lashes, how that happen really??-who else thinks eyelashes are generally unfair in life?)

Then I added a matte pink lipstick someone gave me for ordering LuLaRoe…it looks Tarte brand. I include a picture.

And there ya go! I have pink and orange eyes today, and I’ve got to say I love it and it’s super fun to dress up my eyes when it’s a dingy day! I totally cheered myself up by doing something different and spent time on myself today, I really needed that, my work week was brutal guys, really difficult ….I feel so much better

Have a great Saturday everyone!
