Something else new...a necklace. I got it in the mail the other day and just LOVE it. I picked what I wanted as far as charms and such, and then Ashley over at Bella Vita Fashions designed and made it for me, go check her out and tell her I sent you! So, my necklace is made up of a circle that says imagine on it, then at the top there is a flower charm with a blue crystal (this represents me), and then hanging from the bottom I have three different charms, a heart (that represents my beautiful boys), a dove (that represents my beautiful angels), and the word HOPE (for the future). I cant say enough about how awesome it is in person, pictures just don't do it justice. The quality is excellent. These necklaces run $13 and that includes shipping!! Talk about a steal! She also makes some of the cutest hair bows and earrings. Thank you so much Bella Vita Fashions for my truly amazing necklace!

With everything that has been going on with me emotionally/physically the last six months or so, I really needed something to "pick me up". I use to be one of those women that always had a new cut or a new color every six months or so, then I had kids and it didn't seem important to me. My hair has now been pretty much the same (besides a bit lighter 2 years ago) for three plus years. It was time for a change. For some weird reason, changing my hair always makes me feel better. Last year I was at a plateau for weight loss, so I cut some major bangs. Guess what? I then went on to loose almost 15 pounds, and for the most part have kept it off. Out with the old/bad in with the new/good....me! I did a major cut and lost about 12-14 inches of hair and put in lots of blond highlights in my quest to get back to blond (it will take a few more sessions until I really start looking blond again). I did this on Tuesday night, and so far still LOVE it! Tuesday was the first day in quite a while that I did not shed any tears, and I think the new hair had a lot to do with it. I really felt great getting rid of all that hair, and in a way the past misfortunes. It literally felt like a weight being lifted off my shoulders, like hey, I can be happy. I give all the credit to Adriann at the Eclipse Salon and Spa. She spent three hours making it perfect and did a terrific job! AND it looks cute air dried and wavy, too...meaning I can just wash and go and still have a style!
