Feeling Brand New

As major events occur in your life,  your physical and mental bodies inherently transition along with them.
In this year alone, I’ve gotten married, changed careers, and switched jobs within said career. I’ve also put on weight, sort of lost my parents (more on that later…maybe),  and adopted a kitten. With this came a change in my personal style to accommodate my busy schedule and a serious change in the consistency at which I post on this here webpage. I haven’t had the capacity to really do shit the way I’ve wanted to because things have been happening so quickly that I’ve been operating at zero-gravity just trying to balance everything.


The great Coco Chanel once said “a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”, and here I stand. I went to Devachan salon (you can see my experience on YouTube here) and let them chop off my hair and dye it purple, which I thought would be easier to maintain but it really isn’t (maybe more on that later, too?). But when all was said and done, I felt liberated and inspired and ready to take on new things because I was unshackling at least a couple of chains as they snipped my dead ends.

Either way, I’m feeling more in control and super beautiful, and I asked my good friend and talented photographer Trevon James to capture the moment for me because who really wants to lose that feeling, you know?

A huge thank you to TJ and Anthony Green for getting me right that day.

    It is weird that i too, have followed in the same steps of changing my hair (chop chop) in reflection of milestones. This year (after talking about wanting to do it for sooo many years) i had bleached my hair after moving into a new job that was years in the making. Its like ones hair cut can almost be a reflection of releasing ones baggage or externalizing a change within your self.
    Your hair do looks great and the pops of purple, i personally dig. Work it gurl!

      I don’t think women realize how much our hair is a reflection of ourselves. I’d love to see a picture of your hair! xo

  • I love mei smith I kept looking at the shirt dress and just bought it because it finally went on sale. Anyway, I love your hair and the hints of purple is too cute. You must be a person who is open to change and copes well with it. I say do what makes you happy and feel free. I dont like combing my hair and all my family have chopped their hair off. I am like I guess i will let mine grow again and now it has decided to grow and now its more that I have to comb!!! Do you I tell people , do you.
