And so, the journey begins again. I cut my hair off, mess with the color, cut it some more, then grow it back out. It's what I do. What you nice people missed while I was away from the blogosphere was this:

The platinum pixie!
I've always thought platinum would be fun, but I didn't think I could pull it off. I tried it anyway and LOVED it. It was a pain to get it the right color, but it was worth the pain. Plus, with my mom being my stylist and doing it all when I wanted, how I wanted, for absolutely free, it was no big deal. ;-)

Anyway, I went to give myself a trim the other day and ended up cutting it down to an inch and a half. The only platinum left is at the tips of my non-bangs. So, I've decided since I'm back to healthy, non-damaged hair, it's time to start over and grow it back out.

I heard biotin was the way to go for encouraging quick, healthy hair growth, so I ran to Walgreens and got some. Some people don't notice any difference when they take it, and some say it's miraculous. I've started taking 1,000mcg a day. A lot of people take way more. Some say less is enough. Time to see whether or not it works for me.
Hopefully it'll grow quickly! Now that I've decided to be done with the short, platinum look I want my long curls back immediately.
(Incidentally, I'm wearing the same outfit in both of these pictures.)

If you have any hair growing tips, or experience with biotin, I'd love to hear about it!

Stay tuned. Next post will be an update on the big move!

I'm Back!

Hello, Blog Land!
It's good to be back. I only had 10 posts last year, most of which were in January. A lot happened in the past year, but we'll let bygones be bygones and just roll on forward.

Things are 'bout to get crazy around here, and I've had an itch to write, so here I am!
I've got two journeys going on that I thought would be fun to document:
1)My family is moving to another state in the next week or two.
2)I'm growing my hair back out. (I know, I know. I never leave it be, do I?)

So! There should be some fairly interesting blogging up ahead. Maybe. Anyway, There's my intro. Let the fun begin!
