i'm in a funk today. i don't know if it's because of the fact that the sun now sets at 4:52, or if i didn't get enough sleep last night, or if it's just a plain bad week. there are usually a few things i can do to get me back up on the horse. family time is number one. sure, sometimes, naughty kids can make me even more short-circuited, but for the most part, my family will pull me out of a bad mood pretty quickly. a good cry works, too. pull out PS I Love You, and i feel better after two hours. then there's good comfort food; mashed potatoes and stuffing, mom's burritos (or almost anything mom makes). a big mug of hot chocolate or a glass of red wine (depending on the time of day) might also do the trick.
but on a day like today, it's more of a fashion funk. i woke up hating my hair, hating my clothes, looking too pale...i think most of you know how that goes. so here are the things that pull me out of my fashion funk...
a good haircut
thanks to the wonderful zoe, at the rat's nest, who did a great job cutting my hair this weekend. now if only she could come over and style it every morning...because i seriously lack the hair styling gene!
a new color
i don't know if it was a mistake or not, but i colored my own hair last night. this is the problem with being in a funk...sometimes irrational choices are made. but hey, i was rational enough to choose a non-permanent color. it's a dark auburn. i wasn't up for pictures today due to the funk, but promise to take some soon!
this is my favorite way to make myself feel better. even if it's something small like a new necklace, or a new brand of mascara...a little shopping always makes me feel better. sometimes even window shopping helps. so here are a few things that i know would improve my mood today.
