5 on a Friday!

Is 5 on a Friday still even a thing?? I'm just going to go for it and say yes because I like it and I haven't blogged all week. So booyah!
This post. (Beware, there's language and sex talk for those who are offended by such) I don't like body shaming I've been called fat before, and at one point in my life (definitely not now) I was told that I was working out too much and I was too skinny which made my neck look weird. I'm guilty of judging other people's bodies too. There's really no way to please everybody else. It's YOUR body, you have to live in it, take care of it and dress it. And it's YOUR job to feel comfortable with your body. I tend to rely on other people to make me feel good about myself and that's just crap. Praise from other people comes and goes. As someone who has struggled with body image, self love, gaining weight and uneven boobs - I loved the honesty of this post!

My jam. I'm so ready for The Voice and my weekly dates with Adam.

Fall = darker hair, right? I'm getting my hair done tomorrow and I am thinking about really changing it up. Like majorly getting rid of the blonde. I love the blonde, but it's been my look for several years now and it might be time to go back to the dark side.

I would really really like to try this...but it might be too much of a transition right now.
For the record, I still love ombre. I don't even know if it's something that the cool girls do anymore, but I might single handedly bring it back.
I need this for my birthday. Which is 27 days away, by the way. But honestly I'm not sure I'm excited this year. More like terrified.
Let's end on some positives to take us into the weekend -
9 Days until UT Football is back in my life!!
34 Days until a fabulous girl's weekend in Charleston with my girls!!
51 Days until The Walking Dead new season!

I love changing up my hair, go darker! You are going to love Charleston if you've never been before. If you, well, then you know how awesome it is!

Rachel S. said...

Loving all those hair pics!! I am needing a change and maybe that is it!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

Come over to the darkside. I love the first one for inspiration. The wine cup is perfect!

Christina said...

Shannon Q. said...

Just an FYI, I miss you when you don't blog!! :) and that wine glass, you're right, it looks to be a necessity!

lil desiqua said...

Ooooh I need that cup ion my life! And only 51 days??! I was going to try to watch all the seasons from the beginning! Gahhhh! Looks like my weekend will be Netflix filled! Happy Friday!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

You should totally go dark! I love that first picture you have up there with the ombre!

I agree that everyone should be comfortable in their own bodies! I do wish, though, that the issue of skinny people being bullied would get more attention. I could lose ten pounds myself, so I am not skinny, but I think bullying is wrong for both types.

Jackie said...

I;ve never been to Charleston...someday maybe

Laura Darling said...

I love that tumbler. I think I need one! :) And I will confess - I have never in my entire life dyed my hair, but those pictures make it tempting!

Jill @ Bluegrass Belle said...

I'm pretty sure ombre is still in, "they" are just calling it something different these days...baylage or something weird like that :P And yes, the're either too skinny or you're chubby. When people are heavy they usually know it, they don't need some butthole to remind them.

Live yo' life :) Dark hair, uneven boobs, and TN football if that's what tickles your fancy ;) (j/k...KY football starts back up next Saturday too and I'm in no way as excited as you are lol)

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

Because Shanna Said So said...

Okay, I am dying to know....did you darker????

Ashley said...
