About a week ago, I was talking on the phone to my sister Marnie and she said something 
that I thought was pretty funny.
She said,
"You're turning into a hippy."

 She was referring to my 
365-day hair project and my style in general.
Because, I mean, now that my hair is turning ombré, I'm not blow drying or teasing my hair, and I'm going thrift store shopping,
apparently that makes me a hippy.

I was so amused by her comment that I made a post to Facebook about it.
I got an awesome comment back from a guy I know named Rob.
He said,
"I think what your sister meant was, 'you're awesome, and have quite the swanky style.'  Diggin' it. Excellent work with the hair also."

See, Marns?
I am NOT a hippy.

I am swanky.

I couldn't agree more! The more I become like a "hippy" in my adult life, I realize that if living a fulfilling and wholesome life means being a hippy, then I am all over it! Super cute outfit, btw!

Marnie said...

Dude, it wasnt a diss! Your new style is super cute! I never said hippie was a bad thing!

Oh, my dad called me a hippie today. I wore a headband on my forehead and thought it was great. I sure do love your red cardigan. It's so vibrant!
Hope you are having a great week.

Swanky definately works for you. And such a gorgeous cardi, and the bag is great too.

Nothing wrong with being a hippie. I think it's so important to have an ever-evolving sense of style. And yours is great.

I think, to be a good affiliate marketer is the hardest thing to do as a blogger, you must have huge traffic to get the possible buyer and also you have to build your own audience, because honestly i've never made a single sale with my first blog
