ive always believed that it's important to show a new look.

Every so often, it's nice to treat yourself. Recently, I was able to do just that. I went to get my nails done and my hair cut! I think that I really needed it.

In recent months, I've found it hard to make time for certain essential things - like getting my hair cut. This is largely why I've let it grow so long. In fact, I haven't had my hair this long in years! As much as I have enjoyed it, it definitely felt like it was time for a change. In the last several weeks, my hair has gotten so hard to style. It's been awful!

So, when I went to see my hairdresser, I stressed that I wanted it a little shorter. I was desperate to get a little bit of length off and have it thinned down some. Now that I've gotten it done though...I really miss my long hair! I guess that's how it always is - never happy with what we have. Sigh! Ready to see the final result?


As for my nails? I went for a really pretty light blue - which I love! It's super fresh and cute. Unfortunately, I think I may be running out of neutral-ish shades to try. Ack! But for now, this is a shade that is making  me feel fab.


When did you last treat yourself?
