How many of us wish we could have one more day (maybe more) as a child. No responsibilities, no bills, no being a grow up! Sounds good right? Too bad, it can't really happen. There's a reason they say 'enjoy it while you can'...seriously. I wish I had listened. What if I told you there's a way to gain back that childhood pastime - coloring. Look no further because the next big thing is adult coloring books, and yes...they are as fun as they look.
Actually, scratch that...they are more! Need to distress? Coloring, I hear can be quite therapeutic. Put down that phone, stop getting a Facebook! Color. I <3 My Hair is a gorgeous book filled with wonderful sketches that will keep you occupied for hours. I know because I've done it. Hm...guess the question is jeopardy is whether or not I love my hair.
Well, sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I'm currently trying to grow it out to my belly button. Don't ask me why my belly button, that's just where I've always wanted it! Recently I started taking tutorials on YouTube on how to do different hairstyles. I'm kind of boring in either leaving my hair down & straight, or in a messy bun that's supposed to be cute but isn't.
Eventually, I'll get there! What about you? Do YOU love your hair. Please let us know your beauty secrets involving your hair! And while you're at it, make sure you get your copy of the coloring book. I'm not joking when I say it's freaking gorgeous.
*Beautiful coloring book given to me for an honest review. It was my pleasure coloring!
