Fresher Than a Certs Off in This Mug.......

Flower, Earrings, Necklace, Shades, Fro- BAM!

If there is one thing I love, it's accessories. I don't like to leave my house without them. I can run out without makeup, but if I do, I must have on either my largest earrings or most colorful scarf. As a matter of fact, the only reason I got an additional hole pierced into my ear was so I could keep the little studs in all the time, so even on the (very) rare occasions when I forget earrings, I always have those in.

Soooo... I would like to show you a few of my accessories. Notice how in the photos of me, the Big Azz earrings are almost always on.

My Favorite Scarf. Leopard, Meow!
My Trusty Prescription Specs. In Burgundy, of course.

Sparkly Headband, Big earrings
The sparkly head band was originally a gaudy necktie
My Drawers full of ribbons and scarves and material
Sunblock Swag. The hat's gone, but I'm going to get a new one!

Two of my favorite faux flowers
A silk Scarf that I got in Turkey. Yes, Turkey!

You Could Probably say that I am an accessory junkie. But that's okay. A lot of my accessories are recycled materials- meaning that I made them from something else. I have a basket in my Hobby room that is overflowing with fabric. You can bet your fur that most of that will be made into scarves, headwraps, bows, etc- OMGosh, the thought of it makes me swoon! Of course, there is only one, one, ONE accessory  that I love to step out with: My Husband, Alex. 
On our wedding day

Best. Six. Years. Ever. 

What's YOUR must have accessory?

There's Always Next Time.......(Flat twist update)

Whomp whomp. That is the result of my flat twist experiment. I think I know where I went wrong.The twists were pretty large, so while my hair was stretched, it was not  defined. Ah well. here is how it looked:

It's Bigger..

I wasn't pleased with the outcome, per se, but I was trying to find a way to deal with it. You know, make the best out of it. Except.....

My Hair was sooooo DRY!!!! I guess I was used to wearing my scarf and hat, and completely forgot to moisturize properly.  That  is a mistake I will not be making again.. Sooooo.....

When in doubt, Puff it Out! Yeah, I was disappointed, But my puff was extra fluffy! After some intense sprayin and sealin, of course. 

So, Beauties, Hopefully next time I'll have something better for you. *sigh*.
