Ombre Hair!

I was just talking with my friend Melanie feeling not pretty and doing something about it. I mentioned that her Instagram photos are always so beautiful and she never has a hair out of place. Even on days that she says she isn't pretty, she really is! 

How many of you have days like that? How many of you all feel gross and ugly and not pretty, no matter what you do? I had a week like that last week. I had a breakout/bad reaction on my face from some product and my hair was in dire need of a cut and color and I haven't been exercising as much and it all added up to a feeling of yuckiness. Just looking in the mirror made me sad, and that's not good. I love making others look and feel beautiful but sometimes it's hard to feel that way about myself. 

So I decided to pull myself out of this rut. Sometimes you gotta say to yourself " SELF...stop feeling sorry and start feeling amazing. Go do something just for you.

So I did. 

I made an appointment at my hair salon with my favorite colorist and stylist and I got exactly what I was looking for. What do you think of my new hair? It's exactly the Ombre I wanted. Ombre is the latest trend where it is dark on top and gradually fades to light on the bottom. I started this process back in July but haven't been able to get back to the salon until last Saturday. And I'm so pleased. Well worth the drive to West Hollywood!

What do you think? Do you like it? What do you like to do when you are not feeling your best? What pulls you out of the rut?

You are all beautiful to me. I understand we have ups and downs, but I know you are all beautiful beings and that beauty comes from within. 

Keep your head up and your shoulders back...be proud to be you! There is no else just like you out there!

XOXO,

Amelia St. John

Love it! I love the ombre hair but I'm too scared to dye it myself ha! I got these instead - dip dye hair extensions They’re available at Hairtrade.com and there's some gorgeous colours. I got the dark to blonde one and they look fab! Kate x

That's a great idea if you don't want to take the plunge and dye it yourself! You should post pictures of how it looks! I'd love to see, I bet it is beautiful!
