7 Contemplations Of Cutting Your Hair Short Again

7 Contemplations Of Cutting Your Hair Short Again

That's not a blush brush... that's my pony tail.

Here are a compilation of the thoughts you have while sitting in a salon chair, fearing that your hair stylist might turn you into Edna Mode from The Incredibles.

1. You're not trying to look like Lord Farquad on your graduation day

We all remember the most eligible bachelor from "Far Far Away" with that iconic bob. Although, I must say that a crimson cap would be pretty cool, eh?

Yes? No? Go Cougs, anyway.

2. Your ponytail will be mistaken for a community blotting brush

Next time you're in line to waste another five bucks on a tall, hot, white chocolate mocha — with non-fat milk and no whip — during rush hour at your local Starbs, be careful not to stand too close to the girl with the beat face standing behind you.

One movement and your hair will be dipped dyed in the shade sun beige, honey tan, or whatever the heck shade of glob is packed on her face.

3. All the leafy ladies (all the leafy ladies)

Your ponytail will always remind someone of something. High ponytails in particular bounce like the head of a radish.

4. Hence the tick-tack-toe canvas behind your head

Slick ballerina buns are nearly impossible. There is no way to get rid of the flyaways at the nape of your neck without using bobby pins in perpendicular patterns to tack them down.

5. Good mushroom to you, too

It's 7 a.m., and the sun isn't the only thing that has risen because — WHOA — would ya look at that? So did your roots.

6. Showers can be brutal

As soon as the water runs cold, you don't have a protective shield on your neck to delay the cold shock down your back by at least two seconds.

7. "Did you cut your hair again?"

Last spring, I cat walked into the new semester with my new, and flouncy 'do. On some days I would wear my hair up, and on some days I'd let my bob swing free.

There's always going to be someone that will ask you the same question on a weekly basis: "Your hair looks shorter. Did you cut your hair again?" This person will probably go at it for the next six weeks every day you wear your hair down.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

I Used 'Baby's Feet' And My Feet Look Like A Baby's

It's a foot mask that strips all of your nasties away.


You've probably seen it, or some form of it on social media. It's the foot mask that you put on your feet; then a few days later your feet start peeling like a snake shedding skin. The videos are nasty but satisfying.

I myself, walk around barefoot all the time. I work out daily. I like to go on long hikes. I am always on my feet. Needless to say, callouses have built up my friends. And these callouses are not cute for sandal season here in the valley.

I've done the pedicures, the callous removal treatments at the salon, but nothing has really gotten rid of everything. I, too, saw this viral internet beauty trend and was skeptical at first. However, after watching my brother (who has worse callouses than I) and my friends have success with this mask, I decided to investigate.

I began reading reviews online and found that the one with the best reviews was "Baby Foot Deep Exfoliation for Feet peel, lavender scented". The reviews were either "best product I've ever used" or "do not waste your money".

I began researching what steps every person who was raving about the product was using. After gathering different tips and tricks here is how I went about this whole foot mask ordeal and got the results I was looking for.

I began with soaking my feet in hot water for ten minutes, then I rubbed my feet with an exfoliant, rinsed them off and dried them. I placed my feet in the two booties and tapped them as tight as I could around my feet. I did this so that they would be most snug around my feet ensuring the product was submerging my feet. I also placed a pair of socks over the booties for extra snugness. I then I went on and took care of business that needed to get done while I waited the two hours with the mask on my feet.

The instructions on the box state to wait an hour with the product on your feet, but I waited for two hours because of how thick my callouses were. I was thinking maybe the difference between the two reviews is that those who said the product did work were impatient and did not give it all the time it would need.

As I waited with my botties on, I had a warm sensation on my feet, similar to if you were doing a heat face mask. I would wiggle my toes every now and again to mix the solution around.

Once my two hours were up, I rinsed my feet off with water and rub my feet with exfoliant again. Then I went to bed.

I did not see any results the first day, but I kept my hopes up because the box did say it would take around five days for the feet to begin to peel. I continued to soak my feet four ten minutes every day and rub my feet with an exfoliant. Around day three the magic began. All of the dead skin began to peel off. Section by section over a course of three days, all of my callouses were peeled away with ease. My feet now look like actual baby's feet.

The product does require a long process and a lot of planning beforehand. While your feet are in peel-mode you do not want to wear sandals around, for obvious reasons. So make sure you use this product during a time where you will be okay walking around in closed toe shoes.

This product is not for people who are wanting instant results as I said, it took three days for my feet to begin to peel. But if you have the time, the patience and want fresh feet for the summer, go out and buy your own baby's feet mask. You can find it at your local Ulta or Walmart.
