hair.

if you have been following hello scarlett, you might have noticed that my hair is very short and very blonde. i have had short hair for most of my life! i find it easier to manage, more fun to style, and most of all, i feel like myself when it is cut short. however, it has never been so short as it has been over the past 2 years.

so, dear readers, i feel as if it is time for a change. a few weeks ago i had my hair colored dark and started parting it more in the middle. (this latter part is a big deal since my signature look has always been side-swept bangs.) the goal? “gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair.”

i found some magazines.

*g* and i skipped spring cleaning this year and instead went right to summer cleaning. actually, it was more like summer-i-took-everything-out-of-our-basement-and-threw-or-donated-it-all-away. what a relief, though! it’s understandable why getting rid of clutter is good chi for your home.

that being said, before i got rid of anything i went through it with a fine tooth comb. this included revisiting my vintage and current magazine collection. for me, skimming through these magazines was like looking through old photo albums. certain pictures stirred up feelings of nostalgia, and i wondered how i was ever going to part with them. knowing that i really had no choice, i decided to document my favorite articles before i sent them to the recycling bin. that way, i would always have them (at least on my computer).

p.s. do any of you feel the same way about certain items that you own?
