I'm Back! ..and Happy New Year!

Hello fellow retro lovers! Happy New Year to you! I realize that I totally missed 2013..whoooops!

It's been a verrrrrrry long time since I've written in my blog. You know how it goes, you get enthusiastic about posting and after some time passes, you either get just a big lazy or you get super busy. It's been both of those scenarios for me. But, I do want to contribute to the retro world as it's very dear to my heart :) 


I may not post as often but hopefully there's still someone out paying attention! 

I've taken a break from my usual retro 'do because the rollers and extra heat do quite a number on my hair. It's good to take a break from time to time and re-evaluate. I've been curly more often than not and sometimes straighten my hair for a week or so. 

My straight hair and my morning cup of tea before cleaning.  

 
I know heat damage is pretty much a part of the process if I'm wearing my hair a certain style so I alternate. 


Sometimes I'm more curly-modern.

I've had crazy knots and split ends too so I cut my hair a little and that makes a huge difference. It's interesting, I don't miss having the longest of hair because I still manage to have fun with it. I think it's due to my desire to wear my natural hair. My confidence has increased so much that it doesn't matter how my hair is, I usually love it. Score! 

My selfie hair cut, not too shabby!

So, I've been here and there and enjoying life, working out a lot more and trying not to sweat the small stuff. I hope you all have been well, do let me know what you've been up to! I can't promise not to disappear because, well, you know lol. But! I think I'm getting back into the posting spirit. Huzzah for that! 

Til next time,
