If my heart was a compass you'd be north...

I'm back!!! Haha I feel like it has been ages since I have been "physically" present within my posts. Most of this is due to the fact that I have been battling with the dreaded color change. Ugh... how I hate the bleaching process. The initial hue removal is such a nightmare and so tedious! The last thing you want to do is fry the hair prior to adding your lovely new shade --which is exactly what I did--.  Luckily, I've experienced worse and with a lot of love (and an endless stock in conditioning products) it is coming back to life. So, needless to say, my locks are not exactly where I want them in the color wheel as of yet, but after a fresh cut and another coat of color I am hoping that will no longer be the case. I will keep you posted on that.


Although faulty beauty products were high cause for my woes these last couple of weeks, I found that they were not the main culprit. I found my patience levels to be seriously lacking. Leading to the ones I hold dearest taking the brunt of it. My poor Christopher Robin never saw it coming... the saying is true, you really do take it out on those you love most. I am so lucky that my man chalks it up to me being his "crazy girl". Seems so much more endearing than unpredictably psychotic ya know? ::sigh:: I wish I knew exactly what caused these sudden swings in my mood as of late, but that will have to be a topic for another time.

Thankfully, these last couple of weeks were also filled with so much beauty. I had a treacherous, but wonderful, time with my rambunctious family, started building some amazing new friendships, and received some of the most delightful gifts from some pretty amazing talents! I am just so smitten with my new accessories from Amourx Handmade and we have been practically inseparable ever since the day they arrived! Even when times are tough I am just so grateful for those around me who continue to love me through them and I hope (for their sake) that this little storm will pass.
