I mentioned before that I was crying a lot from a traumatic situation. Well guess what popped up on my head from that--TWO GREY HAIRS.

You can't really see them and they blend in and look like blond highlights but they are definitely GREY--like a wolf--or an old lady. I didn't think I would get any grey hair for years to come but here we are! The time is now! I am totally blaming it on the emotional trauma because I'm not kidding you, those hairs were not there before. They are about an inch and a quarter long which is how long my regrowth is since my last color. (I know- I needed to get my color touched up like a week ago) The crap hit the fan that coloring day and the next and the crying ensued from then on. I am freaking out now and I can't freak out or else I'll get even more grey. I guess hair color will now be my best friend--forever!

It's official, my hair is long and I am loving it! I have grown my hair out before but it was kind of on accident so I didn't really appreciate it like I do now. I wear my hair down nearly everyday and I have embraced the crazy waves it tends to form. Here is what is working for my hair--Alterna. I can't use it too many days in a row because it can be a little heavy for me but I love switching up shampoos either way so it's all good.

This is the Caviar Moisture shampoo and conditioner. They also make Caviar volume, blond, brunette, or red hair.

This is a favorite for a lot of people. It's called Beach. It's the perfect spray to give you beach waves in your hair.

When I don't use Caviar, I put Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum in my hair to keep the fuzz down. I can blow dry my hair and flat iron it and it will protect it from the heat. If I let my hair air dry, it keeps it under control. I can also put it in after my hair is dry to give it a little extra control. It's really pretty awesome.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed that under my eyes I was looking really puffy, wrinkly, and dark. I started to panic that maybe my age was finally catching up to me and that maybe I should start using eye cream everyday instead of every once and a while. Youthtopia from Origins is a good one. It will actually reverse signs of aging--they make a face cream as well. My friend Kathy started using it maybe a week ago. When I saw her today I could honestly see a difference. Her skin was fantastic.

....OR I could just stop crying everyday. This is probably the more logical solution to depuffing and dewrinkling my eyes. I have managed to do that now. I'm not an emotional basket case, I was just hurt really bad by someone I really care about. I just have to do a shout out to all of those who have prayed for me and given me kind words of advice and encouragement. I have never felt so comforted, calm, at peace, blessed etc. This too shall pass.
