Why I've Been MIBW

A lot of people have been asking me why they haven't seen a post in a long time, and I'm here to explain.

Throughout my adult life I have been plagued by physical hardships.  I was told at age 22 that I have a spine of an 80 year old.  This was when it started.  From that point on (11 years ago) I've been battling physical ailments.  I've been diagnosed and dealt with everything from scoliosis to kidney stones.  I've had surgeries (some while prego) and it has not been fun.  Well, about a month ago, my hands started shaking and the doctors don't know why. 

This has been more of an emotional trial than physical, if I'm being honest.  One more thing added to the ever-growing physical ailments has really been a blow.  So, that is why I've been MIBW (missing in the blog world).  Here are some things that have been soothing my troubles....

I've had a lot of support from this:
(literally the best chocolate I've had in a long time!!)

and this:
(caffeine free because regular doesn't help with the shakes :)

I hope to be back to my normal self soon and be able to stop dwelling on my hardships and have some positivity come into my life again.

I Have A Mustache

I think it's hilarious when people comment to me that they like my mustache and the people around us give her/him dirty looks.  I've had several people ask me on the side if they heard correctly.  Yes, you heard it correctly.  I have a mustache, and I love it!

Except, this mustache never has to be waxed, bleached, or shaved.  It stays with me whenever I want to put it on and for however long I want to have it on.  I don't even have to take it off if I don't want to.

Take a look at this mustache:

Isn't it cute?

How about another angle?

I'm putting them up for sale in my etsy shop:
 {Hurry before they're all sold at the craft fair I'm going to be a vendor at!}

Stop by if you want your very own compliment-inducing mustache! ;)

How to Get Big {Sex-ified} Hair!

I've always liked big hair.

I haven't always been able to achieve said big hair.

You see, my hair is VERY thick, and there is a TON of it.

I warn every hair dresser of the aforementioned, and they never seem to believe me.

That is until they get me in their chair and actually feel the goods.

Then they are shocked and awed by the amount of hair I have.

Told you so!!

So here is the magic tool that I discovered.

If you want the big, nice, lovely, flowing, thick, bombshell, movie star hair here's the secret:

A Teasing Brush

It is seriously heaven-sent.

These have never worked for me and I never knew why:

It's because they don't work.

They may work at first, but they don't HOLD the hair like a teasing brush does.

If you have thick, thin, whatever type of hair it doesn't matter.  The brush will work for you.

I love it when people think I'm a hairstylist!

Now they know my secret ;)

I'm nowhere close to a hairstylist, I just found their secret.  {hee hee}

Here's how to do it:

Get your flat, dead hair ready.

Pick up a one inch or so section of hair and tease like you would if it was a comb.
{Please ignore the horribly streaked mirrors that my 10 year old cleans when he's in trouble! Couldn't tell til I was editing the photos ;)}

Then start teasing the heck out of your hair.  
Go all over the top of your head and then underneath.
{At least that's how I roll.}

Then it'll look like this.
{Said in a sing-songy voice of course.}

Here's a side view.
Cute, huh?!

I was trying to get a better view for you, but I just couldn't get another angle since my arms aren't like Mrs. Incredible's.
Maybe I can use this photo for a sexy-come-hither look.
{Yeah, I didn't think so either!}

So that's it in a nutshell.  I wish I could actually show you how to do it, but I don't have 8 arms to hold a camera while I'm holding up a section of hair while I'm holding onto a teasing brush.

I hope this has helped some of you, and I can't wait to see all of you with bombshell, movie star hair!!

Now go on and get yourself a teasing brush!
