A Failed Attempt

Recently, I have been wanting a bit of a change. I don't remember the last time I cut my hair, but it is definitely more than a year since I had any sort of cut or trim. I actually wanted to cut it this past December while I was in Mexico because there is a hairdresser in the town I go to, who once cut my bangs for the first time ever, and I thought she did a great job and she definitely knew what she was doing. Unfortunately time went by so fast that I didn't get to go see her. I also had no idea what I wanted to do to my hair, until now.
I take showers at night and I am one of those rare creatures that plays with their hair at the end of the day instead of at the beginning. I have noticed that when I bring all my hair forward my face shape changes and I love the way my hair looks. I have no idea how to explain that style to a hair dresser so I scoured the internet to find something similar to what I wanted. Basically I want my hair to start from the crown of my head and have it cascade down to the front of my face. In other words, I want tousled hair with bangs that start from very high up, here are a few examples....

I'm a bit skeptical about actually going out and getting a hair cut right now because it feels like an impulsive thing to do and because my hair would probably end up looking like these other hairstyles...

Although pretty on a model, haircuts never seem to turn out how I would like them on me. Her is a quick example, yesterday I decided to make fake bangs out of my hair after finding this video by Larissa Love... 

This is what my hair looks like in the morning after letting it dry while I sleep...

These are pictures of my "bangs" they look okay from the left and front side, but then my right profile gives it away.

After trying to do this to my own hair I again tried to make fake bangs with my sister's hair and it didn't work either. It wasn't much of a failure though because this just reminded me how much of a hassle bangs can be. I remember how some days my bangs would look perfect, but throughout the day they got unmanageable or worse my hair wouldn't cooperate and my bangs just had to be clipped back which just wasn't fun. Also, I have curly hair so I would need a hair straightener at all times in order to keep them in their place.

We shall see, maybe I can get a haircut once I get a job and use this as an incentive to actually find one. What do you think bangs or no bangs? And which picture above would be easier for my hairdresser to understand and follow?

Before I leave you I also wanted to announce that I will start posting on my blog every Tuesday, just so my readers can know when to check back on this blog. I will be doing a few new types of posts, hopefully you enjoy them.

See you back here next week,

January/February Photo Diary

This is so annoying, having to write when there is really nothing to say. I keep saying I'll start writing again and then radio silence and I have no excuse except for me being lazy. I don't want to blog using my iPad because there is no keyboard and I don't blog because I'm to lazy to turn on my laptop and then have to set it up. I'm not doing anything so I have a lot of time to write, but then again I have nothing to write about since I AM DOING NOTHING! I hate it!

Instead of writing things out and making this a long post here is what I have done while I was off doing nothing in picture format.

My nephews come over during the weekend and my brother and I usually just hang out with them since they end up sleeping over all weekend, which is the best part of my week since again, I don't do anything during the weekday. In January and this past Valentine's day I also got to babysit my niece for a few hours. She is just so cute even though she did get sick the first time I took care of her and then this past weekend she had a huge temper tantrum which just ended up being a routine that she usually does at home anyways.

While my family and I were in Mexico my great-aunt had a brain aneurysm of sorts and was hospitalized. So we have been visiting her every week, she's been home for a few weeks now and is slowly recovering.

Since I'm home all the time I've been making myself a lot of lunch that involves bread, mostly always for some reason.

Along with many other people out there I decided to do the PopSugar Reading Challenge for 2015 so I have been reading a lot more than usual. I am currently stuck reading a book that I am not to happy about, but here are a few I already finished reading...

I had two interviews in January, but the position I was applying for wasn't something I was hoping to go into which I am sure the company knew so I didn't get any call backs. I am still looking, although it's hard to find jobs online nowadays.

I recently helped my sister clean out her side of the closet (we share a closet) and got some clothes for myself in the process. I have a bunch of old jeans (almost all of them aren't my size anymore) and so I decided to try and make my own ripped denim jeans. I don't really wear these so it wasn't such a lose when I messed them up, I still want to add a patch behind it though.

I don't really have a picture to insert here since it's hard to drive and take pictures, but I have been driving and getting used to the family car. I still hate driving, but I'm not as scared of it anymore.

Is there anything new in your life?
