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.

Epic Little Black Bag Haul

This is my third and most amazing haul to date from Little Black Bag. I’ve been a tiddle bit addicted to that website lately. If you’re unfamiliar with Little Black Bag, please take a look at my review of the service here.  To give you a brief synopsis: You are given 3 to 4 items and you have 7 days to trade them with other members of the site, and when you’re happy with your bag, you can ship it. There is no limit to the number of items or value you can potentially accrue in your bag.

Beauty Storage & Makeup Collection!

Beauty Storage & Makeup Collection!

When I first moved into my house, I really struggled with storage options for my beauty products. I’m still not completely satisfied with what I’ve come up with, but it works for now. I converted the 10ft long shelf of my closet into my very own “Beauty Buffet” lol. I’ve setup four beauty stations: Skin, Hair, Makeup, Lotions/Perfumes. Eventually I will buy one of those tall multi-drawer units, but for now, this is what I’m working with.

When I started this website back in January, I didn’t think photographing, reviewing and swatching dozens of different products would become such a fun and obsessive hobby. I’ve enjoyed every little bit of it!
