Hair Progress: The Short Hair Blues

Not too long ago, I let my friend cut my hair, super short. I have been trying to grow out an asymmetrical cut, which if you have tried you would know it is agonizing. I figured why not have her cut it all one length? Well, I ended up not really liking it. It is just SO short and I have been dreaming of collar-bone length hair for months now.
Here is a picture of it:
Haha I kind of have a funny look on my face, I was in art class.

 So I decided that I am going to blog about my hair length status (Which is kind of weird, but it will get me through the hair growing process). I will probably include some remedies to make your hair grow faster (Or at least keep it healthy), and different ways to wear your hair so you are not running to a salon to get it cut. I find that encouragement is really what I need sometimes, also I think that seeing other people with flaws and problems similar to your own can really be a picker upper.

Here is a video of when I had asymmetrical hair, I hope you enjoy my sassy dance moves!

Sorry to everyone who commented on this, the comments all got deleted when I removed Intense Debate. I decided I like the traditional Blogger commenting better.

This movie is my all time favorite! "This is America, dude!" I love the shirtless mullet guy.

Local musicians, local coffee shop, and local friends.

Last night Dom's band, The Dandelion Brigade, played a show at our favorite local coffee shop. My friend Jake Mo performed before them. It is always loads of fun because I always meet someone new, and I get to indulge in the most wonderful chai tea on the planet.

There is my man, isn't he so suave? I just love him.

I chug my Chai tea, it is the only way.

That's Jake Mo. Isn't he just great?

Amanda and I wear dresses all winter long! Woo!

Shaana is adorable.

Thurday nights nights are the best! They start off my weekend because I have no school on Friday! Woo! What are you up to this weekend?

By the way, I got my haircut. There is a post coming up about it.

Wear a Dress, Snow Matter What.

I love wearing dresses, and I do not plan to stop because there is a little snow on the ground. Honestly, I think my tights are warmer than my jeans (They are fleece-lined!). When I wear jeans, I do not feel the same. I just love the way I look and feel in a dress. 

I got a new backpack! It is from the brand Herschel, and it is called the Little America Backpack. I just love it so darn much! It is made extremely well, which I would hope for such a high price! The inside, which you can kind of see peeking out in the picture, is red and white striped. There is a separate padded pocket for a laptop up to 17 inches. I have an HP and it fits, but it is a bit snug. The backpack itself is huge, I fit all of my books and art supplies in it no problemo!

Outfit Details:
Socks-Target (Men's Section)
Boots-Forever 21

I am also very happy about my purchase of these boots! Dominick's mom gave me a Forever 21 gift card for Christmas and I bought these! They are super comfy and cute! I love to wear men's dress socks with them, so they are just long enough to peek out. Target seems to have the best collection of men's dress socks.

I love Luminology's soy candles, they are so modern and sleek looking.

I have recently been doing all sorts of new crafty things, these stuffed bears inspire me so much. I would love to make stuffed animals!

New Camera News

Yes, you heard that right. I got a nice camera, finally! My mom and I put our money together and I got a Canon T3. I really like it. I looked up reviews before buying it and it seemed like a good beginner camera. I have yet to sit down and read the manual thoroughly and really learn how to work it, but I have taken quite a few pictures. The pictures already look much better than the ones from my old camera.

You might be able to see (if you look closely) that I am wearing a hat. I'm not sure if I mentioned this on here, since I have not been posting much, but I am growing my hair out a bit. It looks absolutely ridiculous right now because I had one side cut a lot shorter than the other. I did not think about how frustrating it would be to grow out an asymmetrical cut when I did it. Gah, hats forever.

I bought my first record for my new record player I got for my birthday. I love it so much. Vinyls just sound so wonderful. I also bought those boots because all of my boots soak my toes. I needed some nice ones for this next semester. The college campus can be awful to walk around if you do not have appropriate attire. 

My sister and I went shopping, hopefully she doesn't kill me for this picture. Isn't she so cute? I think she is just the prettiest girl. (And she said her hair didn't look good that day! Can you believe that?!)

Hopefully now I will be back on track with blogging. I am on tumblr quite a bit so if you just really want to be updated on the things I like, click here ;)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! <3
