Blog Sale! Handbags, Watches, Jewelry, Clutches, Wallets

I have come to the conclusion that I need to de-clutter like a mother lover. Apparently I love to shop & acquire more than I love to USE the things I buy. And I really don’t have the room to store all of this cute shit that I don’t use. I’ve created a permanent “shop” page that will be frequently updated with new stuff as I sort through and price it all. This is just a small list of fashion stuff for now, but I will definitely be adding beauty products ASAP.

My Hair Story – Donating to Locks of Love

My Hair Story – Donating to Locks of Love

Last week I did something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but could never muster up enough courage.  I donated 10 inches of my hair to Locks of Love.

I’m almost embarrassed to talk about the emotional attachment I’ve developed to my hair. It serves as my personal security blanket.  Whether I am feeling insecure about my bad skin or out-of-shape body, I can always rely on the presence of my long flowy locks of blonde hair. For some, hair is just an inanimate object and changing it’s color or cutting it off is no big deal. But for many others, our hair is a distinct identifier of who we are. I am Chelsey – that girl with the long, blonde hair. That is who I’ve been since childhood, throughout my adolescence and who I remained as an adult.

Sadly, I’ve done something I never thought I’d do. I’ve officially fallen deep into the Instagram black hole. Jump in and join me - girlyenthusiast :)

Epic $320 Birchbox Haul

Even though I’ve been a Birchbox member for 2 years now (I joined in June, 2011) I’ve never really spent many of my birchbox points because, lezbehonest, I’m a total hoarder and that’s what hoarders do. But they were due to expire, so hence the enormous shopping spree. Some of my points actually DID expire but Birchbox was nice enough to give them back so I could place this order.

Rock Your Hair by Michael O’Rourke

Rock Your Hair by Michael O’Rourke

I am always intrigued by hair products that claim to give me massive volume and body because my natural hair is super fine, straight and limp. And my hair shafts are very smooth because I’ve never used hair dye and I rarely use hot tools – which is great for softness but not great for volume (rougher hair cuticles are much easier to style and gain lift from). I tried out some of the staple products from the ROCK YOUR HAIR line to see how they worked on my lackluster tresses.
