Krispy Kreme

I succumbed to the sock bun/top knot rage quite awhile ago.  Any low maintenance hairstyle is high on my list of things to accomplish because it takes me forever to do my hair.  I bought one of those hair donut thingies and each time I committed to rocking' the bun for the day, it just didn't work out.  I tried one more time a few days ago and had the same results.  My melon is just too big for the little bun that my thin hair gives me.  I threw it into a ponytail, but while walking out the door, I noticed my clip in hair extensions chillin' on the kitchen table (that's where I store them evidently... What a nice centerpiece), so I decided to work them in.  Finally, I had a bun big and full enough to match my giant head!  Woohoo!  

This week has been completely insane already.  My mom has been here to visit, which was wonderful. It's the last week of the month, always stressful in my business.  I lost my watch on Monday (devastating) only to have a good Samaritan turn it in on Wednesday.  Finally, I bought a new car, a big down size for me from my big tank, and a big downsize in my wallet pain for gas consumption.  I had some fantastic meetings yesterday, so I was thankful for that.  It's crazy how things can turn around.  I was praying early in the week for something to give, for me to get a break, and by Thursday, I am feeling very thankful and blessed.

    1. I wish I knew what the brand was! I know they are real hair, but that's about it. I rarely wear them in pics on the blog, though. The only times I've had them were on this post and on the one a couple posts ago with the blue DVF vintage dress. Thanks for stopping by!!

    1. I'm to the point to where it's so long that I hate wearing it straight. It just hangs. How is yours cut? Layers? I need volume without having to spend 30 minutes every morning curling it...

  6. You look great with your hair up Sarah! You and your giant head should rock a bun more often lol ;-)
    And how brilliant someone handed your watch in! Nice to hear there are still kind people around in the world. A guy 3 rows up on the train the other day was saying 'bless you!' every time I sneezed, I thought that was a lovely good deed for the day! Ahhh yay for nice people :-)

    1. OMG! Really? I had no idea I made their Pinterest! That is so cool! I'm a crazy thrifter, and sometimes (like right now) feel like I find better stuff second hand than what is in store. Thanks so much for stopping by! Looking forward to visiting your blog :)
