Something New

Hello Loves. I know, I know. I went missing for a while there. To be honest with you, I have been thinking about taking a little hiatus from blogging. But, before I disappear to get my head back together, I just had to share with you my new obsession. Fittingly, it has to do with hair.

As you may recall, I decided to cut my hair off again a while back. Short hair just works for me. It's easier to fix. It makes me look less tired and washed out. And since I am blessed with hair that grows at lightening speeds, I can change up my look every time I get it cut. Way to go, short hair!
But sometimes I miss having long luscious locks. Sometimes I just can't get the right look with a short style. Sometimes I find myself wishing I could try some crazy color combo without destroying my hair. Guess what......... I can!!

Enter Miss Violet Lace. A darling mother/daughter duo on Etsy that hand crafts the coolest wigs. Beautiful, long (or short) wigs in the prettiest of colors. I have to admit that I have a tiny bit of an addiction to this shop. I visit so often and click on every single picture so many times that I probably account for at least half of their page views. (I need help, I know.)

After much debate, and countless hours spent weighing my options, I finally ordered myself a wig. A long black one with blue and green streaks. I can't wait to get it! I was going to wait until I received it to do a post, but (as luck would have it) Miss Violet Lace is having a sale! And what better time to share a great find than when there is a sale going on?

These ladies opened up shop only a few short months ago and have already had huge success. As anyone who shops Etsy knows, customer feedback can be your best friend. And Miss Violet Lace has the most impressive customer feedback of anyone I have ordered from on Etsy.

Check out their store, even if you aren't in the market for a wig. (You may change your mind.) Krista is the daughter and the model of the duo. And on a totally un-hair related note, I have to say that she has the prettiest eyes I have ever seen. Her pretty freckled skin seems to look good with any color. And the girl has a gift for makeup artistry. (Amazing, really.) Go check it out!! You may be inspired to go for a whole new look for your holiday parties. ;)

Until later, my dolls.

very cool! I have always wanted to try really deep chocolate brown hair... a break from my red hair without dying it. I don't think I would ever dye it for fear of it not coming back in properly. (red hair so so funny that way) thanks for sharing this!

And also, if you need a break, don't hesitate -- I will always check in for a visit :)

Fun! The only wig I've worn was a Morticia Addams one, long and black. It was so much fun, but made my head hot and itchy.

You will have to post a photo of you wearing your new 'do.

PS. Totally hearing you about the blogging break. Take it if you need it, we will be here when you get back. xx
