Change Is In the Air...

There has been so much change going on in my life lately.  Besides being in a place I never saw myself, as the mother of two boys...I will soon have a new title...stay at home mom.  I never wanted the word "mom" to define me, hence the title of my corner of the internet, and, up until now I felt I was dong a pretty good job of not losing my self...I think working helped.  Now that I will be staying home, I am so afraid I will get lost. But, I do need a change, but change I can control... So, I think a change in appearance might do me some good. 

I have been playing around with what I would look like with a different hair color...

I have never been a blonde, but I thinking I might just have to do it.  The is very blonde with subtle tan highlights.  The make-up is my natural, everyday colors.

I always wanted really red hair...very Amelia Pond (Doctor Who).  I went subtle red a year or so ago and now that I look back on the photos...I am not really fond of the look...thumbs down.  I also tried a coral lip here...I like it!


The final look is just a small change from my current styling...  Lighter ends, less layers...


 Finally, this me...today...poop brown with grey "highlights"...

I say go big or go home...so I think I am going to gather the guts and go light.  I don't want to go to short...I think it make my face look fat...plus, I still need to be able to put it up for working out...

Happy Hannukah...tomorrow...to all my Jewish friends...I guess I am going to have to make it a late night wrapping the boys presents.

Have a great weekend...hopefully Monday, I will be styling a new do!!

These are all fun looks! I think brunette works for you too though - did you try a richer brown? Like chocolate? Or brown with a hint of red maybe?

And as for working out with short hair, I just put mine back in a headband when it's really short and it doesn't get in my way, so it's doable!

Can't wait to see what you end up with!

You look like a completely different person as a blonde! If you're looking for a change. . . :)

Good luck negotiating the SAHM change. I know lots of people talk about how stressful and busy they are as one but. . . I'm still having trouble making the adjustment. Unless I'm playing with the kids, it's kind of boring. LOL. Maybe I just need to get out of the mindset that I always have to be going 100 mph to be productive, I don't know.

GO BLONDE! I think you'd look incredible, it seems to make your eyes pop.
I've always want to be a blond but every wig I have ever tried looks terrible on me!
