As I was working on my blog, switching everything over from Typepad, I realized that I need something to inspire me lately. Actually I needed something simple to inspire me. I have tons of inspiration but little money and very little time lately. So I found a photo challenge that went on in May but thought I could follow it on my own and post on here. So Day 1 is a Self Portrait.
It is a bit of an odd self-portrait , yes but I like it. I was actually taking a picture to show someone how dirty my mirror is and ended up liking the array of necklaces framing my face. Of course now I look like I don’t clean but the truth is, I don’t use that mirror other than as a jewelry and scarf hanger. I either use the mirror in the bathroom or a hand mirror when doing makeup and hair. It does give it an older, aged look though.
Speaking of hair and images I decided to theme days once in a while, maybe once a week and this weeks theme is hair styles. I have long hair and I love playing with it but always feel like I don’t have time. So I have found some lovely and simple things to do with hair. (Click on the photos to take to you the instructions).

A Side French Braid from Love Maegan
A Braided Up Do by Raising 4 Princesses
Curled and Lacey by Skunkboy Creatures
Now this one I have tried and while it was easy, I think my hair is too long and thick. I included it here because it’s still really cute and I was able to create something else out of it when I did it myself.
