28 Days

28 Days… Thats how many days I have left until I graduate!

Remember when we started this whole relationship? I had only signed up to go to cosmetology school, and had months to go until I actually even STARTED. But, here I am.

I searched for “finish line quotes” on Pinterest and all that showed up were running motivational quotes. So, we’re just going to go with the flow and pretend that this is for cosmetology. 

Really though, lets all take a second to look back on where we were 10.5 months ago… Okay now that, that cringe worthy, embarrassing second is over with, lets move on.

I hope you are a better you than you were 10.5 months ago, I hope you like yourself more, have learned more about yourself, have accomplished something that betters you, and have grown as a human being.

As happy as I am in my life right now, I need to start thinking about the future. Lately the future makes me scared. I feel like change just scares me to no end, and I need to grown up and deal with life like an adult. Suck it up, Selina.

Also, don’t forget to tell the ones that matter to you, that they matter to you. Sometimes life gets in the way of life and we forget that none of us get out of here alive, and then before ya know it, someone you love is not physically there anymore. So tell them you love them, and that they matter to you, and that this world shines a little brighter because they exist on it.

Oh, wait! April is Earth month for Aveda, which makes me happy, because my God made this Earth, I think he did a marvelous job, and we need to take care of it. So reduce, reuse, and recycle!

Confessions of a Cosmetologist

7258f24dcbd917b8e40fbdc03328c027.jpg

I have a problem. I know I do. I can openly admit it.

Normally I’d apologize for it but I will not. I chose to be a cosmetologist and therefore I am forever justified when it comes to buying hair, makeup, skincare, and nail products.

I mean I wouldn’t want to have you go out and buy a product without knowing if it was worth the buy or not. Its a service to you in all actuality.

I went to the Chicago hair show this weekend. I am forever obsessed and I can’t wait to go back again next year.

I also attended the Stylist Choice Awards where I got a whole bag of FULL SIZE free products, yeah, you read me right, FULL SIZE:

This bag consisted of:

  1. Wella Dry Me EmMi- dry shampoo
  2. Daily Beauty Satin Finish Treatment – heat protectant
  3. Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose – plumping mousse
  4. Keratin Complex Infusion Keratin Replenisher- hair repair
  5. Nixon Intensive Therapy Night Density Rescue – thickens hair
  6. TiGi Bed Head JoyRide – texturizing powder
  7. American Crew Fiber -texturizing clay (for men)
  8. Chi Tea Tree Oil  Soothing Scalp Spray – miracle in a bottle, soothes scalp
  9. Joico Hair Shake Liquid-To-Powder Texturing Finisher – hairspray
  10. label.m Texturising Volume Spray – hairspray
  11. Martino Glass Slippers Satin Sparkle Spray – glitter for the fun of it
  12. Kenra Fast-Dry Hairspray – hairspray

  14. MoroccanOil Texture Clay – texturizing
  15. Living Proof style | lab flex shaping spray – hairspray
  16. MarulaOil Rare Oil 3 -in-1 Styling Cream – styling cream

*the other two products I didn’t mention are not available to anyone but cosmetologists. Also, inside the box was just cup holders… I know, odd.

 

The following day I went to the hair show, and it was the best time ever.

I’m Still here… again

I feel like I come on here a lot just to let you know that I’m still here.

I just don’t want you to forget about me. I’m needy like that. Sorry.

I hope you’re life is going well.

Mine is so busy.

I graduate in less than 8 weeks! How exciting is that?!

I promise to blog soon, I promise with my whole heart.

Just not tonight.

I love you though, please don’t think it’s you, because it’s not, it’s me.

I am alive, and I am very well, and my heart is content, I hope you’re doing well as well.

Love you.

me.

I found some quotes on Pinterest that I’d like to share with you. I’m sure these quotes are meant for lovers and not meant to be from a blogger to her fellow bloggers but we’re going to use our imagination.
