I have GOT to go back to posting EVERY day, this was ridiculous!

Because of husbands new job, sitter (grandparents) out of town, lack of planning, lack of funds, and flat out laziness--my workouts have been pretty damn crappy WHEN I did them, I havent tanned and am turning albino, have eaten pretty poorly (no junk...just the same thing ALL day, EVERY day...BORING), havent gotten enough sleep, have been on the verge of making some life changing decisions so my stress level and the amount of worry I have dealt with has been high, a secret family, because of all this (and the wonderful daily challenges of having three YOUNG kids) ...I HAVE FELT LIKE SHIT.  I look in the mirror every morning to get ready and see an old puffy worn out woman...with HORRIBLE hair that needs to be colored...bad posture...and on top of that I have had a piss poor attitude.  This being said, I have felt less than confident.  I have felt like ass.  So...this will be dealt with.

Annie Dee's Giveaway

Did you know that you can never really say that you have a complete fashion wardrobe until you get everything in check, including your hair accessories? It’s true. Even if you’ve just had your hair cut, rebonded, or treated, you’re going to want to use some accessories to really emphasize their beauty whether you are outdoors or not. It’s not as though hair suddenly doesn’t look good without accessories all over. It’s just that accessories have a way of bringing out more beauty and can really help catch other people’s attentions. If you’ve got hair, you’ll want accessories.

I found an AWESOME shop for hair accessories!

Here is a little more about Annie, the owner and operator of Annie Dee's:

I'm a mom to two children, my daughter is 10 and my son is 3. I work full time, but love to craft and have lots of different projects going on at a time. When I see something interesting, I want to make it - I think that's half the fun for me. Trying to figure out how something is made and doing it my way :)

I just started my very own crafting blog to chronicle my projects - and hopefully motivate me to finish them...
