Sometimes a girls gotta get her Baby Spice on, am I right?
There's nothing like playing around with your hair and makeup. The quintessential "I'm a grown up" tactic of my childhood, I'd spend hours in my moms make-up case, putting on lipstick and pretending to put on mascara. I'd go through all my mom's old costume jewelry from the 80's - she let me think I was Madonna; one brooch after another, strands of pearls, the most unbelievable clip-on earrings I'd ever seen. It was perfect.
And for me, this two-bun situation, sparks up some serious nostalgia, instantly reminding me of what it used to feel like to play dress up, to be carefree, to have a some old-fashioned f-u-n. I'm not one to change up my look that often, admittedly am a creature of habit and have been rocking the never-before-dyed dark brown hair forever (quite literally). I've also never changed up my beauty routine all that much since, well, I started wearing makeup. Lately, I've been a little tired of the 'same-old-ish-different-day', and decided to make some changes, starting with my day-to-day beauty grind.
Starting with these two-buns, a matching set, and some cons.
