As those of you who know me and whoever has read this blog know I am trying to make productive changes in my life.
Recently I got a gym membership, a new tattoo, my boyfriend gave me a beautiful ring, and I shaved off my hair! All symbols of self improvement, a new beginning, & love.
I have tried to start fresh many times and have relapsed each time so far. I do expect to have my days where I feel bad and don’t eat as much, it has already happened, but I intend to not let those days keep me down. This time is the first time I am going to the gym. This will make a difference. I was nervous at first but my boyfriend has been going with me and showing me the ropes! It’s actually kinda fun 🙂
I am trying to visualize myself heavier and I keep a bathing suit up on the wall for me to see everyday so that I am reminded of my weight gain goal. It would be a dream come true to be able to be comfortable enough in my body to wear a swimsuit! The last time I was in a swimsuit was when I was 13 years old, I am now 27!
I have gained a couple of pounds in the last couple of weeks. However, in the past few days I worked more and ate less. My mood shifted in the negative as well. It has been very dark and rainy too and my thoughts began to match the weather. Tonight I am doing laundry and waiting for my friend from out of town to arrive. I just ordered a pizza. I will take some Apetamin, a vitamin syrup that helps stimulate an appetite and slows down your metabolism, and eat as much as I can.
We may not always see it but the sun is always shining.
Thank you to everyone for the positive feedback on my posts so far!
So today I went to one of my favorite second hand clothing stores to look for something nice to wear to a burlesque show my friend and I are going to this weekend… I did find some pretty tops and… a faux fur coat! Only $15 too. It was just there standing out, calling to me. This now my 5th faux fur and I decided to make a post about it and share my collection. I absolutely love them! It is now too warm to wear it but I will be rocking it this winter! It has pom poms too! 😀
So there is my collection. I am aware that I should created a cleaner/less distracting background for outfit photos. I will try to figure something out for future posts.
Thanks so much to everyone who has read my blog so far!
***Update April 28th, 2018 >> I would not recommend this hair dye as it faded very quickly!***
So a few posts ago I talked about being a blonde and staying one.. then this ended up happening last week. I bleached my roots no problem but when it came to the toning part, it didn’t turn out. My roots were still yellow and the rest of the strand was toned. So a mix of yellow/white/gray/violet. I saw that and decided just to go dark. Decided it would be the easiest and most low maintenance choice for the time being.
I do like to dye my hair different colors but that is as far as I am willing to go. I don’t like spending much time on it beyond that. Trying to be a cool toned blonde just wasn’t working out for me, it was costing a lot of time and money. Had to use specific a shampoo and conditioner as well which also costed more. I’m sure i’ll try to be a light blonde again someday but not anytime soon. I am naturally an ash blonde which is a cool toned blonde but it’s the bleach that makes my hair turn yellow and that is what I didn’t like and tried to get out. It’s a lot of work. Next time I do this I will be going to a professional. I am loving this color though. Blue is the color I have dyed my hair the most. Here are some older pictures from previous blue experiences:
Having my hair a dark blue reminds me of wonder woman…
I absolutely love the combination of the primary colors!
…So yes, this is my new hair as well as a dump of old photos, more than I expected but oh well! I see I have new followers, I say hello to you. To let you know my blog will probably mainly consist of self help and discovery as well as pictures I take which is usually nature, home, architecture, my cat and of myself. I would like to start talking about politics too but that is not for certain… Thank you for taking the time to read my posts! Cheers from Canada
