i chopped off my hair [& i like it!].

*Note: this post was accidentally deleted earlier [I know - GASP]. So, if you commented, I apologize... I lost them all.

Whenever I consider writing a post about my hair, I think of this one, which was published long ago. And if that post told you anything, it's that I like changing up my hair [to say the least]. So, the fact that this past Friday, I walked into the salon & asked them to chop around eight inches off my hair, should come as no surprise, really.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've probably already seen most of these photos. But, for records' sake, I wanted to chronicle the big chop here on my blog.

So far, I am really loving the new 'do. It's proven to be quite low maintenance, Justin absolutely LOVES it, & to be honest, I feel like a new person. There's just something about changing up your hair, you know? It's coming up on time to re-dye my hair, & I'm trying to decide whether to go a bit darker, or to keep rockin' the brown with red undertones look.

What do you think?

Super cute! I'm digging the reddish undertones too but winter is always a great time to go darker.

I love the new cut! I always feel so refreshed after I get a bunch of hair chopped off.

I LOVE it, it looks perfect on you.
I switched sides that I part my hair on :) It'll do until layers come in December!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
