I CUT MY HAIR - 12 inches to be exact || me? sewing? + camp nano update

Friday, April 14, 2017

...guys.

I. cut. my. hair.

like, a lot of it. 12 inches to be exact.
It was so spontaneous, which, isn't normally me. Basically, it started with my sisters saying I needed to cut my hair. then I looked up some hair cuts and was like. "yeah. okay." I looked at my hair in the mirror and was like:

"All or nothing."

Then I got the idea to donate it and welp...from the point of my sisters saying I should cut my hair,  approximately five hours later I had 12 inches no longer on me. let's not talk about how insane that probably was, k?

halfway through I was like. "WHAT AM I DOING" (also, that moment of cutting it was sheer horribleness no joke) then I saw the new-do and after like a few minute of "whatdidido whatdidido what. did. i. do." running through my mind, I basically fell in love with it. xD yes, I'll miss my messy buns and long half-up's, but at the same time, it's something new. and wowoww so much less time to clean and I don't even brush it anymore lol. I have a TON more volume and actually have some curl (which i have neeveerr had).
btw guys my sis it amazing. like I show her a couple pinterest pins of hair cuts, and she's like "okay, yep." #sherocks

- - -

so it's finally warming up *cheers for warm weather* and I feel like I should be writing extra, but I'm not, but that's okay?...lol. I'm not so worried or so about finishing early, or getting more words than I aimed for this month. I'm just good with it, and enjoying my time a lot more.

so my sisters have been trying to get me into sewing. basically, it's the one craft thing I've always detested doing. (Like I was the one who always sewed things inside out and the machine always got stuck.)
but they roped me in and, basically, I'm working on two dresses at a time right now #whatevenhappenedhelpme

  1. what's the most you've ever cut your hair before??
    Ummm.. I'm not sure how much but I think it was like 5 inches! I had the same thought process while it was happening - panic but then loving my hair.
    have your ever tried sewing?
    I tried sewing before and was really obsessed with it but it just never stuck for some reason! Good luck wih the dresses.

    2. My hair is pretty long now - it ends about 1/4 to 1/3 down my stomach... but I don't want to cut it much! Just about three inches is all I'll go. ;)

      Yes, I am! My goal is 30k, and I'm a little bit behind my goal, but I'll catch up.

      Delete
    3. oh wowww. that's great! haha, ikr. Mine was pretty long before..and yeah. three inches is good for a trim. XD

      YOU CAN DO IT. My goal is 40k and currently at the halfway mark with 20k. *thumbs up* so far so good XD

  9. Wow, that's got to be a big change! It looks really cute, though! :D I have pretty long hair and I've thought about cutting it several times, but for now I just like it long. :)

    1. hahaa, yep. change can be good, though. aww, thank you!! I knoowww. I felt the same way. You should totally try it one time tho, I mean, your hair WILL grow back. I agree, long hair is nice tho XD

  10. Cutting my hair always makes me nervous...like WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE IT???! I'd be stuck with it. Way to go being brave enough. (And listening to Ju. That took extra guts. XD )
    Your haircut looks awesome. :)

    1. IKR. Like, I could never cut it myself. and yes, totally same feelings. I mean, it grows back..but it takes a while. xP ha ha. It was more like, I knew I wanted to do it, it was just the actual /doing/ it. xP

      aww, thanks, Rebekah!! <33

  11. Well...to be honest, I've never cut my hair THAT much. But I've certainly gone through some very big changes with it. ;)
    Sewing? Are you serious? Sewing is awesome. I really enjoy it -- and two thumbs up for you for being in the middle of making TWO dresses! That is incredibly impressive.

  13. I do not sew at all. But one time I went from having about a foot of hair to having an Anne Hathaway-style pixie haircut. It was totally worth it, but it's taking FOREVER to grow back out. XD

    1. ohmygoodness woooww. that's a HUGE difference. I bet it felt odd for a while after, but it's nice to have something lighter. hahaa, ikr. sometimes hair takes FOREEVEER to grow. which makes it hard to get yourself to cut. xP

  14. Well, I'm about to sew some pillows for me and my sister's room (we share), then I also enjoy embroidery (would that be classified as 'sewing'?) and making little things for dolls. Yeah, I did that a lot when I was younger... xD

    1. ooohh okay. pillows is a good idea - I should do that. bc, obv, you can never have too many pillows hahaa. xD Embroidery is super fun. I've been working on a quilt for the past few years now..I'l get there haha. Have you tried cross stitching? It's similar to embroidery anyways xD

  15. I got my hair cut right above my ears, but that's just because my mom was cutting it and she always made one side too short so she shortened the other side, which turned out too short and so on. My hair is FINALLY past my shoulders again, lol!

      ha - IKR?? I was shocked myself. I guess I didn't realize how long it had gotten. It had only been a year since I had cut a bunch too. XD

      dude. side bangs?? That's so brave. I have thought of it, but it's more of a permanent thing so it scares me haha. I can't wait to see how they look on you - they'll totally be adorable! <33

  18. The most I've gotten cut off was about 10 inches on my 14th birthday (2016). I still haven't decided if I regret it or not . . . Ugh it's so hard to decide whether I want to cut it again or let it grow—too hard of a decision!! Honestly. ;P
    Your hair looks absolutely adorable!!!!!! <3 <3 It looks so great on you. :D You have a such a sweet smile.\
    Good job on Camp NaNo! You can totally conquer it, girlfriend. xx

    1. oh wowoww. that's a lot!! and yeah, I know what you mean. It's hard, there are perks to both short and long hair..but if you cut it, it can always grow back. and if you wanna go long, you can always cut it. XD

      aww, thanks so much, Sophy!! omw you are so sweet. thaannkkyouuu <33 are you doing nano this year?? I can't remember #horriblememory I'm currently at the halfway mark, going good so far!! thank you! <33

      haha. IKR? I'm both ways with that...when I get more comfortable i'm like "whatever I'll make my own pattern" but if not, I follow it exactly. xP I feel pretty comfortable winging crocheting, more than sewing right now haha. go you for being able to do that!! :D

  25. GO YOU GIRL. You got this sewing thing. I know how to sew and everything, and when I was younger I had older friends try to teach me how to and all....but. YEAH. Once I tried sewing a dress for my doll and I was going to sew her name on the hem because the sewing machine was fancy and could do letters, but I ended up doing it on the wrong side so we had to hem it up again so the doll got a very short dress. Fun. xD

    1. haha, I hope so. It can be pretty nerve wracking. plus, my sis has super expensive machines (like sergers and coverstitch) so ripping out takes 1045070840248 times longer. xP aww, that's so cute and arg, I know. ambitious things often revolt. :P it sounds so cute tho!! I was like ten when I first started sewing...I even got to sewing a quilt. I still can't believe I did that. xD but then I guess I lost my sewing capablities haha

  29. Ummm...I don't even know. Ha. That's just like me to not keep a record. I'm trying to grow out my hair so that I can do a proper bun. I've tried sewing, but I don't really have the patience. I think I partly have ADHD in some areas. I just found this, and you're so pretty. I LOVE long hair, so I'll probably just leave it be. You look greta with your hair shorter (12 inches to be exact). <3

  30. I don't know why, but I never cut my hair. The last time I cut it was when I was five and got ahold of the scissors... lol! I used to have this hope for Rapunzel hair or something, but now I just don't want to. I'd miss my braids...
    You look good with short hair, but my hair is soooooo frizzy. xD It would look TERRIBLE on me. Ha!

    1. Yeah...I don't often, really. I'm kind of a person where I do it, or I don't. xP oh, dude. I think every five year old does that tho?? haha, I actually don't think I did tho...I probably considered it though. xP aww, short hair is so nice though. I like long hair, but it can be hard to control, ugh. nooo. maybe you should just try some different hair products?? I was worried mine would be way too thin, but I've figured out how to do my hair more now and add volume so it works xD

      Delete
  31. Okay, that does it. I'm cutting my hair. xD All the girls at my church's community group have had their hair cut shoulder-length like yours, while mine is still reaching down to my elbows. I like long hair, but it's so unruly! A short bob for the spring will be good. (Besides, you look so lovely in the shorter style!) *nods* Imma do it.

    1. OKAY DUDE WAIT. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT BECAUSE LIKE I JUST MADE YOU DECIDE TO CUT YOUR HAIR SHORT *feels the power* hahaa. but yes, short hair /is/ nice, and I don't regret it. ah, ikr?? My hair used to knot all the time, but now, I can run my hands through it and it's just fine.
