Silver Lilac Hair + Birthday Presents!

I have yet another new hair color!
This time it's silver lilac hair and I'm in LOVE.

I usually keep away from purples in my hair cause I feel like it looks weird on me but I feel so good in this shade. I was originally going for straight up gray but the last time I had gray hair someone mistook me for an old person from behind T ^T That kinda ruined it for me, lol. I want to live my youth as a youth, hahaha. So having this purple shade to a gray makes it feel and look more youthful.
I'll post how I did it later. It's unconventional though since I had to get the green out but I know people will keep asking.

Lately, I've been pretty lax with my outfits. I just want to be comfortable and grab things off my clothes rack without thinking too much about it. I love dressing up and creating interesting outfits but I've been learning to let go a little with my appearance and try to live in the moment a little more.

So this is mostly how I've looked lately but I think you can see in these pictures that I've been feeling pretty good. New hair, better perspective on life, I have things I'm looking forward to, and having a more agreeable relationship with myself is refreshing to me.

And now you're probably wondering where I got that bag from!

Earlier this month was my birthday and this was a seriously amazing year of presents. I did something new which was share my Amazon Wish List and even though a lot of people like doing surprises and picking gifts hoping the other person likes it, I don't do too well with those. I'm honestly a picky person and I also prefer owning items that are practical or that I'm strongly interested in. When you grow up moving around a lot and on tight money, you just prefer necessities, useful things, and whatever gets you excited.

Below are just a few of the items from my Amazon Wish List that friends gifted me!

This lovely bag is the16 Holowood Clear Studded Hologram Handbag Cross Body. It fits everything I carry and it's not too big or too small. I was surprised how perfect it was! I keep it pretty tidy in my bag so I'm good with a see through bag. It's no good for sneaking food into a movie theater though, lolol.

This one is the Beautiful Wooden Pink with Heart Hole 21' Soprano Ukulele. It's so flipping adorable and it has fine glitter in the pink. You have to look up close to see it. It takes a few days for the strings to settle and even then a few more weeks after for them to not move so much. From such a small body it makes a pretty loud sound but it's very pleasant.

And this one is the 1928 Jewelry "Heart Of Hearts" Gold-Tone and Rose Pink Heart Charm Necklace. I haven't worn it out yet. It's too precious to casually wear Dx' I don't want it to get ruined even though I know I'd take good care of it, haha.

The other gifts I got were art supplies that have been a huge help with my commissions, a pretty green aventurine necklace (posted on my IG: aprilfoolromance), and a carved Stitch figurine! The biggest present was my best friend coming down from a different state and visiting me T ^T She decorated my home and gathered videos from my friends greeting me happy birthday and some of them were so heartfelt. I definitely shed a few tears and it was sappy and warm and lovely and the most loving gratifying birthday I've ever had.

She's moving closer in just a few weeks and her family is big into holidays so it's such perfect timing with Holiday season right around the corner!! I'm thrilled with the small changes that are happening in stores. I've already gotten myself some pumpkin items and started collecting candy for trick-or-treaters :3

Anyone else excited about the holidays?!
