Clip-Clip

So recently I started cutting my own hair. 


Uh, yes!


Not sure what made me actually do this…


But it just seemed like I was wasting money at the Hair Cuttery on something that I could do myself. 


Also, I remember fondly how my dad used to cut his own hair for decades.


So I gave it a try–that’s not me in the picture!


I purchased a simple Wahl clipper and went at it.  


First a little tentatively and then more boldly as I got the hang of it. 


The best part of the clipper is the color-coded guide combs so I don’t completely screw this up. 


What I also like is that ability to give myself a little trim whenever I want. 


Don’t have to wait to get to the barber or to wait on line there. 


So far so good, thank G-d–no big hair disasters.  


And frankly, I look a lot happier than the guy in this photo. 😉

My Fun Socks

Just wanted to share some of my new fun socks. 


You don’t always have to take yourself so serious. 


It’s okay to let go and just be you. 


From Dragon Ball Z to Super Mario, I feel so empowered!


Hope you do too.  😉

Happy Sock Faces

I just thought these socks with faces were really cute. 


I was tempted to even buy some. 


But the faces were on the feet.


So you couldn’t see them around the ankle when you wear them.


If you wear the socks without shoes then you can see the cartoon faces.


However, then you also wear out these fun socks 


I’m in for fun socks.


Just have to get the faces in the right places. 😉

My New Sneaks

These were my new sneaks for like two hours. 


I loved them in the store. 

My stylish and lovely daughter helped me pick them out. 


Nike bright orange–cool, fashionable. 


“Just do it!”

But when I tried them on, I didn’t have socks, and had to use the ridiculous thin ones in the store.


The sneakers were snug and I asked for a larger size, which they were out of. 


I took the sneakers anyway, hoping they would be okay when I got home, but disappointingly, they were way too tight. 


And “the give” that the saleslady said would happen with the sneakers, absolutely didn’t. 


My foot was being crushed in there. 


I think Nike’s run small. 


Like the look, but not the sizing. 


Anyway, saw three people playing soccer in these (or something close to it) the same day. 


Orange is the new black. 😉

Taking Pride In Your Work

I thought this was a nice necklace. 


The lady in the hair salon had a necklace in the shape of a scissors.


I asked her about it because it seemed sort of unusual and neat. 


She said, “It’s a scissors!”


And then she proceeded to squeeze the miniature two handles, and said, “You see, it actually opens and closes too!”


I could see and hear how proud she was of what she does for a living. 


Yes, maybe it doesn’t earn as much as some other professions, but it was her job and she loved it. 


I think we should all try to take such pride in our work and in doing a great job!


Everyone has something important to contribute and every contribution truly counts. 😉

These Pants Are In Vogue

Vogue Pants.jpeg

I just thought these women’s pants were so cool (yet gaudy).


Another standout you think. 


A fashion magazine making up fashionable ladies pants. 


The covers are bright, colorful, and feature a array of many women and looks up and down each pant’s leg. 


The pants are a collage of these all.


These pants are probably not for the faint of heart–you’ve got to have courage to wear these. 


Some might say, you’d be crazy…


A ladies next dilemma–what shoes do you wear with these?  😉
