Wohoooo!! First Blog Award (plus new haircut.. UGHH + Mini FOTD)

Wow!! My first award. I just received this from the fabulous Simone who also has a beauty blog (thanks again!) Honestly, I'm pretty happy even though I know dozens of awards are given to bloggers on a somewhat regular basis. I'm just happy that people are finally reading my blog -which means my reviews, tips, advice, whatever.. are actually getting out there! I have 4 lovely followers so far and you know what?? That makes me happy! I love makeup and I love passing along my favorite products and beauty tricks with fellow makeup junkies. That's the whole point of a blog. It's not about making money, populary, or any of that -that's why I try to make my blog a positive place for all the good things in life. =)

Now.. onto the haircut.. EEK!!
Yesterday out of pure spontaneity, I got a haircut. I've been sort of wanting one.. you know, just a few inches off to get rid of the dead ends. My hair was a little past my waist so I wanted to cut it to around my chest so that it wouldn't be so "heavy" for Spring and Summer. I didn't ask for much.. all I said was, "Can you please cut it to here (pointing towards my chest) and with lots of layers?" Somehow along those few seconds of me explaining what I wanted, my words were interpretted into "cut Kali's hair to shoulder length!" She cut about 9 whole inches off. I'm not too grumpy about it since hair does grow back -I just don't really like it. Oh, and the whole time, she told me my hair was "tangled" at least 15 times. Her statements either went like, "Did you use a comb?!! You're hair is so tangled!!" or "Ugh, so tangled." Alright, I know that I have frizzyish, wavy, and sometimes even nappy hair and it can get tangly -but that doesn't mean you put down the customer. Bad customer service if you ask me. Here's the new and improved "tangled mess":

I look really silly here.

Not really a complete FOTD.. just for running errands..
