And The Page Turns Again

I love this picture.
The colours are so light, the architecture is so interesting and yet my eyes are drawn right to the top. Which is exactly how I feel about my life right now.

The past month has been a whirlwind of emotion and events that I could have never expected. With my mind - and body at times - being completely occupied I have had to neglect anything to do with the online world. But now, I'm back.

I am back with a new outlook. I am back knowing that sometimes moments of my life will remain out of my control, but I am also back knowing what I deserve and stopping at nothing to get it. I am back and ready to take on this new chapter of my life.

Right now, I'm still standing at the bottom of that white pyramid called life, but as my eyes look towards the top, I am so ready to start the climb.

Weekly Hair: Half Up Topknot

pictures from: abby smith and hello fashion

After being convinced for months that I could not pull off this look, I am now OBSESSED with the half up topknot. It's perfect for my awkward "growing" stage and keeps my hair out of my face. Plus, it looks different every time and messy is key. Who wouldn't want that?!

If you're unsure of how to even attempt this look, there are a million tutorials on YouTube, but really, there is no "correct" way to throw half of your hair up. Just use elastics and bobby pins to pin and hold it in place until you are happy with your look.

My favourite part of this look? It goes with absolutely everything! You can have curly hair or straight hair; you can dress it up and down. The half up topknot is one of the most versatile hairstyles I have ever tried.

And to give my final verdict - ANYONE can wear this hairstyle.
