Hello again! I’m back after a super long hiatus with no amazing excuse except that I’ve been busy becoming who I am today. If you’ve been following my blog you already know that I identify myself as a hopeful dreamer, a lover of life, and a major procrastinator. Couple these traits with my passion for writing and perfectionist ideals and you get a sizable case of writers block… Umm.. Ya. It is what it is right?! If you can relate in any way shape or form I have a funny little idea for you that my close friend shared with me and it is the idea that any task worth doing ( meaning you really really really want or need to do it ) is worth doing “half – assed”. I know what you’re thinking…. that it sounds backwards. We should all be giving 100% all the time or else don’t bother!! Well WTF does that do for me? I’m already a mega spaz about meeting my own expectations.. That half the time I give up Bc I am afraid I will be disappointed or worse I will disappoint others with my efforts. Sound familiar? You’re not alone.. There are many of us and we are all paralyzed waiting for “inspiration” to get moving. So this is my best effort to deliver something and break the seal of my thoughts so that I can start sharing them with the world again. One of the things on my mind lately is how much can change in a year! My hair is finally getting longer and healthy after my emotional makeover last year… See previous post for insight. I still have been receiving emails from readers about hair questions, which I love! I have been contacted by a couple of companies asking me to sample their products and review them or mention them in my blog, an awesome perk that I hope I get more opportunities to do. I have settled into a nice routine with my children and my career, and in the midst of it all I’ve also fallen in love. Yup, life is pretty good these days.. But it wasn’t an easy road and if I hadn’t put some good solid effort in long ago, I wouldn’t be where I am at now.
If you want to know where you’re headed, it’s important to know where you’ve been. The same is true for your hair. Your hair’s past is important too and if you haven’t been investing in quality products and hair treatments then you aren’t going to get to do as many fun things with it like try a new haircolor for summer or flat iron it smooth every day. I’ve been experiencing a similar side effect with my feet. From years of standing in uncomfortable shoes like flip flops, flats, and unsupportive high heels, I have developed a terrible case of plantar fasciitis. Every morning I wake up and can barely put pressure on my right foot.. I hate it!! I wish I had taken better care of my feet and worn better shoes like the ones that Naturalizer sent me recently to test out. I’ve always been skeptical of “comfort” shoes Bc, let’s be honest, they can be ugly or heavy and who wants that? But more and more I am seeing styles that are cute and I was very impressed with the cute pair of Mary Jane style shoes I picked out for myself from the Naturalizer at Work collection. As promised, the shoes are comfortable and stylish at the same time! I encourage anyone who is on their feet all day like I am to check out the available styles at Naturalizer.comIf you are not signed up on my email list please take a moment to so you can keep up with me on a regular basis – there should be a link on my blog to “follow” me. In my next post I’m going to go over some treatments and products on that market that will help you invest in the future of your hair so that you can do all the things you want to with it while keeping it as healthy as possible, so stay tuned! XOXO Natalie
