It really seems as though this season is one of the busiest yet. I feel as though I say this all the time, but wow it was such a busy week, and next week brings with it lots of exams and appointments..whew! I cannot wait for a break! It went back to summer-like weather here..I wish it was getting somewhat cooler because I am really wanting to break out the cute coats, sweaters and boots!! Unfortunately, I'll probably be waiting for another month before the cool change comes about.
I really am not having a hair color mid-life crisis, I promise..but
I decided to go back to being blonde after enjoying the brunette look for a bit. I liked the color and was happy that I could pull it off, but I just didn't feel like myself. I had wondered for years what I would look like as a brunette, so it was a good experiment; I am much happier blonde, just saying. Haha
I recently discovered how crazy some people can be when it comes to shopping and good deals. I've been shopping on Black Friday and whatnot, but that was nothing compared to the '50% off everything all day' sale at the Goodwill that I like to visit. Holy moly. I've never seen anything quite like it. Now you have to understand that this is not your average Goodwill, as it receives lots of fabulous finds bearing top designer names (think Escada, Juicy, Chanel,..etc.), but the people were so intense that day. I waited for a good 7 minutes in line for a dressing room, and did end up with some good stuff..yay! It was perfect to get some early Christmas shopping done; yes, I'm way early, I know. Next time I'm not sure I'll come in that day, too many scary shoppers, but lots of great deals..hmm such a toss up!
I recently received this lovely read from a good friend of mine, and I couldn't put it down until I was done! It was so good! The way that author, Scotty Gibbons, talks about how his youth group was able to give, as well as his ideas of giving for wherever you're at is so good! Highly suggest picking this one up on your next trip to the bookstore.
My sister is in her school play this weekend, and so I've been doing her hair and makeup based on the style of Amanda Bynes' character from Hairspray. The play is a comedy set in the 50's. She looks so cute with the curls, and in her full costume she's the perfect vintage girl!

I just had to throw this one in there..we had an open rehearsal at my studio, so people could stop in and watch our Nutcracker rehearsals, and we each received a gorgeous rose at the end! It was so sweet!! I just love a deep red like in this one; it looks so pretty on my dresser!
(Peach roses are my all-time favorite though!)
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
