I have given up on the dream that I could look like Alexa Chung, Brigitte Bardot, or Jane Birkin. Why? Because, they have bangs. Bangs are a lot of fun to get, and a lot less fun to get rid of. Like the house guest you thought it would be fun to hang with for a couple hours because you didn’t have anything to do, but here it is 5 hours later, really wanting to go to bed, and they are still here, with the remote, and now they are choosing which Girls episode we are going to rewatch? When it is time to go, it is time to go. Au revoir! I should know better given this is probably the 144th time I have cut bangs and then decided a few months later to grow them out.
What other tricks are out there? Come on, give me some in the comments because this is a rough time for me…***beauty always comes from within, photos from here, here, and here, xoxo behind the mirror***
