Why Do You Blog?

November 8, 2013

     I was asked yesterday, "Why do you blog?" It was an honest question, but it had a sense to it that the person was genuinely negative about the idea. So, as politely as I could I answered, "because someone needs answers." I realized later, it left them in a confused state, and decided, since they read my blog, obviously, I'd go into a bit better detail.

     To my Anonymous questioneer,
I blog because I know that there is someone out there who reads to find answers in life. Whether it be a beauty question, business, or whatever. Someone or someones, needs an answer to a question. I don't always know if my answer will suffice them, and they may find their answer on another blog. But, that's okay! I know that that answer will be found just from the many blogs in the world. That makes no sense you say??  I know but my point is even if its not my answer, it's okay. Someone will come one day and say wow that's MY answer, right here on It's A Simply Lovely Life. I blog because there are many ideas and lessons I have learned, I want to help someone else with.  In a much shorter statement, I blog for the same reason you read my blog. Because lets face it, you are reading this letter to you right now, looking for that answer I didn't give you yesterday. :)

Bayalage Your Hair at Home

November 6, 2013

     So I have been dying my hair for over six months now. I have had a lot of struggle to get what I want, mostly because I'm so impatient. Anyway, I highlighted my hair at a salon over six weeks ago, and my natural roots are coming in strong. So I have been looking around for something I wanted to do in order to look decent for a wedding I'm in at the end of the month. Last night I saw a tweet from Jessie James Decker about how she does your hair so I decided to try it.  I can't believe she does her own hair and makeup!


     So here's my before and after. It doesn't look exactly like hers, but my main concern was getting rid of that harsh line from my new growth and my old highlights. The before picture is a few weeks back. I couldn't find a more recent one, but we all know what I'm talking about when I say there was a straight, blunt line about four inches from my scalp. You can kind of see where they use to start and where I faded them out. At least it looks wayy better. and more natural.
      I checked out a few places, and to actually bayalage your hair its between $100-$200 depending on where you are. Some places are even more in bigger cities. I used the exact brand and color she used. It was only $13 at CVS. Thats even cheaper than my one color brown dye! Plus the fact I may not have to do it again for six months is a plus... I got kids! Lol :)
