Fibro Flares and No More Bad Hair

Published February 20, 2017 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!!! Sorry been away so long. It’s been a hell of a ride these past months.  I’ve had a super bad fibro flair ( for all my non spoonies out there a fibro flair is when our symptoms act up so bad that we end up having to rest  until the pain and fatigue ends)   and a hard time with my depression medications.  I also changed my look a bit …Thanks to the lovely staff at The Color Bar with the amazing job they did. They made me feel welcomed and made me laugh so much.

A special THANKS to VICTORIA  for this fabulous new look! 

I’m hoping things have settled down finally.  It’s been so long since I last blogged that I am not even sure if I mentioned that my clinical depression has a new friend…. I have now been classified as having bi-polar disorder, so new meds have been prescribed for me.

I’ve felt like a lab rat the past few months as the psychiatrist has tried me on several meds to see which one would be the best fit, so far so good for the newest one.

My mind seems to have settled down some , I am not feeling like my mind is at warp speed as much.

I still have heaps of muscle and joint pain, but that will be a constant friend as I walk with fibromyalgia.

Well that’s it for my  update …. I hope to be able to do a few makeup reviews for you shortly.

Thank’s for taking the time to peak in on this spoonie’s makeup bag, and remember …. save a spoon for a bit of lip gloss.

Barbie Heads and Hair Monsoons

Published November 15, 2016 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey. Hope the day finds you with plenty of spoons.

So remember when I said I made a lot of changes? Some were health related and some where hair related, gulp …. OK so here’s what I did to my head….

In February  I decided I was a red head

I really enjoyed this color but …

Anyone who lives in Florida can tell ya that the water here is hell on hair color … and it doesn’t help that I hit the pool pretty hard this year. But I also liked the color that my hair lightened to

So much so that i didn’t color my hair again for a long while (from February until October… that’s  a record for me) which gave my hair this amazing chunky  ombre effect …

Didn’t mind it so much, but I had to push it…

So October comes in and I went dark…

This was meant to be a dark denim blue but it looked black unless under direct light

So I decided to color correct and … gulp …. attempt to bleach my own head ….

Color corrected, though could go lighter … enter the weeks of hell …

It was still too brassy so I tempted fate and bleached it again the next day … 😣

Since I was doing a dark denim ombre I was good with this…. or so I thought…

I hadn’t noticed until my hair dried that I was bald in some areas… and the hair rained down like it was monsoon season … on one particularly bad hair breaking day I brushed my hair only to find a barbie head stuck in my brush …. enter the shock you are about to  have . … are you ready to see my new look? … gulp … here we go…

Ohhhh ya baby, yes I did … I buzzed it all off.

I gotta say it’s kind of freeing … saves me time on getting ready, showering, and I don’t have to worry about bad hair days for a while…. or accidentally overdosing on dry shampoo between blow outs.

also am loving the fact that I can make anything I wear and any makeup look appear a little more edgy

And wearing hats in Florida doesn’t mean frizzy hair later 🤗

Hope you enjoyed me poking fun at my hair mistake …. Thanks for taking time to peek in on this spoonies makeup bag, remember save a spoon for a bit of lip gloss 💋💜💋
