Winter Romper and Perfect Hair Length

Anablack1

I bought this cute romper from TopShop and wanted to make it work for winter, so I added some leggings and boots. Freezing cold temps are sooo not fun!!! I saw a picture of Kim Kardashian wearing open toed strappy heels in the snow. How does she do it?!

In other news, I think I’ve found my perfect hair length and I’ll tell you why! It’s long enough for top knots, braids and waves, but short enough to blow dry in 20 minutes. I don’t regret at all going short after having Mateo, and I can’t say that I won’t chop it off one day again. But I definitely feel like longer hair feels suits my face better.

Here’s hoping this winter won’t last forever!

Love,

If It Makes You Happy!

My dear husband recently bought me the book “Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul” and reading it really brings me back to my childhood. I loved these books as a teenager. They inspired me to appreciate the little things in life, but also to dream bigger and farther than my little world at the time. I always wanted to move away somewhere and experience a different life. I did get that chance when I moved to California in 2002 as a newlywed. AnaB-Jan-31 AnaB-Jan-35 AnaB-Jan-36 AnaB-Jan-28 AnaB-Jan-44 AnaB-Jan-40 AnaB-Jan-33

It’s funny that the adventure I was looking for didn’t end up being in California. It’s happening right here in good old Virginia. And in my 30s. Not my 20s. Ha! But life is kinda funny that way. I’m always in awe of how things end up turning out. I do think that part of getting to where you need to go happens when you’re in tune with yourself. When you say no to the things that stifle you or make you unhappy. And say yes to the things to excite and inspire you! Even if people don’t agree or even if it doesn’t make you money at first. Believe in yourself, believe in your purpose, work really hard for what you want and find a way!

Love,

Ana B
