I'm back! I'm back!

Holy crap. I can't believe I haven't blogged since last February. My "hiatus" was never intentional, other than real life getting in the way. And by real life, I mean nursing school and all the clinical hours that go along with it. I couldn't even remember what my login was for blogger. But I'm back! And I'm excited to start blogging again. I think I'm going to have this blog be everything from beauty, to clothes I'm loving, to things I'm using to organize with...more like a lifestyle blog!

I didn't even know where to start when I decided that I should start blogging again. Do I do a favorite products post? Do I talk about where I have been? ETC ETC. So, since I got my hair done yesterday, I will share that with you...considering the last time I blogged I was a PLATINUM & TONE blonde.

Last April I decided I was over being platinum blonde. I had been a platinum blonde for well over a year at that point, and it was time for a change. I honestly will probably NEVER go back to being that bright of blonde, but it was fun while it lasted.

Now that my hair is no longer drinking bleach every 6 weeks, it has actually gotten so much healthier and grows almost 2 inches every 8 weeks. Incredible. And since I have never actually had super long hair, I'm trying to grow it out below my boobs. THIS BETTER HAPPEN BY SUMMER! I have big dreams of having beautiful, curly, Pinterest-esque hair EVERY.DAMN.DAY.

My hair as of yesterday:

I have fallen into the ombre craze! I feel like that look has been around for about 2 years now, but I think it looks good on everyone. I go to an Aveda salon, and my "base brown" is a level 5. The ombre section is in the reddish brown family and is a level 7. 

Here are some of my favorite *hairspiration* pictures:

This is about how long I want my hair to be. Her shortest layer is about my longest layer right now. HURRY UP HAIR.

And I *LOVE* this color for summer.

I can't wait to see what the hair trend of 2013 will be!
