Mood Board: Cutting the Curls

I walked in to work, my coworker is sitting on a sofa sipping her coffee, looks up at me and yells “Good Morning Millie, your hair looks fabulous! Hey, I’m liking this spirit, give me all the compliments, I’ll take them wherever I get them.
I’ve been trying very hard to stay away from heat, it’s tempting. I failed this week. But in my defense, I did really well for two months. I’ve also been thinking about cutting it, mostly to re-shape the way my curls fall.
I’ve been debating if I should get a Deva Cut, since I keep hearing great things about it. You know what it’s time to just go do it and stop talking about it and just go do it. The price is so steep though.. but if I can spend almost $200 on things like camera equipment and a phone bill, I can invest in my looks.

Desirables: June 2015 Wants

1  |  2  |  3  |  4   |  5  |  6  |  7  |  8  |  9

This month of June is all about easy living, keeping it simple and being effortlessly amazing. Sometimes you just want to throw something on and just head out the door, that’s why I’ve been craving over one piece clothing. I saw these cute olive green overalls online and was wishing I had them in my closet. I could throw those on with a t and some chucks and boom, I’m done. I could even pair them with heels if I want to spice it up a bit.

That yellow gown has me in awe… but really, where would I ever wear that thing?

My main focus right now is growing my beautiful curls. I want them to be longer, so I don’t always look like I just came out of the disco era with my fro. Once they start going a little past my shoulders I think I’ll be good money, I’ve been using a lot of coconut and castor oil, and I think it’s making a huge difference. My hair looks so much healthier, and I’ve also noticed that my roots have been growing at a faster speed. Yes, the maintenance to keep the blond going strong is annoying, but at least I’m seeing results. I actually decided to take step 1 into being a grown up and bought vitamins this week. Omega 3’s and coconut oil pills. Let’s hope they work for the better!

I’m constantly thinking about how I should switch up my room, something I also do because I tend to get bored so quickly. I’ve only been at my apartment for 2 years and half and I promise you, I have ran out of options. My bed has made it to every single wall in my bedroom. I’ve been trying to keep things neat, but let’s face it, I’m a pig. Aren’t artists usually messy anyway? These little cute storage boxes seem like something I’m definitely going to invest in. Maybe they’ll at least keep all of my bobby pins in order.
