Bangin' New Looks

I've got a couple of new looks to share with you all today, and I am SO excited! Over the weekend, I decided to take the plunge and get some bangs! I've always been convinced I couldn't pull bangs off, but my BFF (and hair genius) disagreed. So here I am with a new look. I like to imagine myself an older, wider Keiko Lynn or Miss Melissa or Jennifer Love Hewitt ;)



I am still getting used to them, pushing them out of the way and touching them way more than I should, but I pretty much love them! I have a feeling I am going to get a little braver and you will eventually see major "bangage"! My point is change is good, experimenting is good! We should never be afraid to try something different- even if it's something as shallow as new bangs or red lipstick. We can't spend our entire lives being too scared to try things, that's no way to live!



The other major change, you may have not even noticed- it's up there in the address bar (I'll give you a chance to look up). Yep, that's right! You should be reading this from my new domain www.hemsforher.com. For Valentine's Day my husband surprised me by buying my domain name. I had mentioned it several times, and he's clearly a good listener. I was really excited about this gift, but also very touched. He has been super supportive since the beginning, and if you blog, you know all to well how time-consuming blogging can be. He never complains about the almost constant companion of a laptop in my lap, at the dinner table, the couch, the bed. He never complains about taking pictures, or retaking when I don't like any of them. He wants me to succeed and follow this through where ever it leads, and owning your domain is the first step.



I'm also working on adding a Blog Lovin' subscription link to my right hand tool bar, that should be up soon, and I invite you to follow me using any of those links! I know how tough it is the keep up with all the blogs you love to read. I follow my favorite bloggers in as many different ways as possible- Facebook, Twitter, Blog Lovin', Google Friends Connect, Pinterest, RSS, am I leaving anything out? Anyway, without sounding shamefully self-promoting... I shamelessly self-promote.



Here's hoping you have a bangin' Monday!

I love the bangs on you. I think they really frame your face nicely.

I've given you the Liebster Blog Award. The post on my blog about it will be up later tonight. I'm not sure if you've gotten the award already, but if you have, you deserve two!

I just got bangs in December and am STILL adjusting to them. I've really loved the ride so far but I think I'm growing them out for the summer, just because I'm worried about them clinging when I'm swimming a lot. I LOVE them on you though, they're the perfect length and they already sit so well!

Thank you. Thank you. I am blushing!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It was a very thoughtful gift. Just funny how priorities change. I was like, "Whoa! You bought my domain? Kick ass!" All day my students were asking "What did your husband get you?" and I was like, "You wouldn't understand!"

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you! I did feel very rock 'n' roll here!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you Carrie! I definitely feel sassy!
