Etsy.com is my new favorite site for gifts. Everything they offer is handmade, incredibly unique and whimsical. Love. It.
And of course, Anthropologie will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Especially the jacket.
Aaaand planning for a new haircut on Monday, I'm thinking blonde highlights (I haven't gone blonde in a long time) and side bangs. I wish I could do something like Zooey Deschanel, but I've done the dark hair look and I don't think I'll be able to pull that off again.
Sooo I'm thinking something more like this:
We'll see how that goes. My hair is thinner, slightly redder, and slightly darker than this, but this'll be the general idea. Hopefully. I hate my hair. It's thin, there's fly-aways, there are baby hairs around the side of my face. I feel like it'll never work for me. Believe me, if I could beat it into submission I would. I just wish it were thicker. I think I have the smallest pony-tail in the world and it consistently looks like a forty-year old's hair. We'll see what my beautician can do, but it seems to me like a lost cause. Really, if you think about it, hair is a strange thing. We are the only animals that actually grow their hair long-- a strange evolutionary trait if you ask me. We uniquely style our hair, change its color, and put things in it. For God's sake, I saw a girl at the midnight Christmas service with tinsel weaved into her hair. I love bobby-pins personally, they aid in that classic, hipster, adorable up-do that I try to (unsuccessfully) achieve.
Eh. I could probably pull off something like the image with the flower bobby pins above, which I absolutely adore. Hand-made flower hair pieces, sooo pretty.
