Friends...Who they truly should be!

Friends Forever!

Recently I was reading in one of my 27 books.   Yes I am trying to read them all at once.  No really, a little of this one and little that one.  Just don't ask me what I read! Hahahha!   Anyways, this one book I am reading is called The New Relationship Marketing by Mari Smith.   She wrote something that just resonated with me so very much.   It was a list of traits a True friend should be  and you should be in return.  Short and sweet but here it is.....words, sentences, feelings, bullet points to ponder! XO Carrie

  • You feel comfortable confiding your innermost secrets to them.
  • If ever the need arose, you would loan money to and/or borrow money from these friends
  • If you were ever in the hospital, these would be the friends who would come and visit you and vice versa
  • You trust these friends to look after your home and your children whenever necessary
  • You could call any of these friends in the middle of the night in case of an emergency
  • Any of these friends would happily drop you off and pick you up at the airport
  • You connect with these friends regularly
  • You often spend holidays together with these friends

Now obviously if you live far apart some of this doesn't work but if you did you know they would be there right?
I can say apart from my mom and sister....the one I know is my truest, bestist (I made that word up) friend in the entire world is Sandie.  We have been BFF's since we were 11 yrs old!  Been through alot together and apart.  Moved faraway, didn't talk, got back in touch and yet through it all we are still those two 11 year old girls singing as we petal our bikes down the street! Love you San! XO Carrie

BIG BANGS...want a new look in seconds?

BIG BANGS!!!  Ok, I have to confess!
I did cut my bangs.  I had the type of
sweep over bang everyone loves but I got
bored.  Everyone runs when I say to
them, "what do you think if to my hair?"
All of a sudden I am alone.  I can clear
room with that statement! Through the years
I have done tons of things to my hair. That's
why everyone runs...hee hee.........
My hairdresser is shocked at how great of
condition it's in.  The secret?  Good hair
 products...and if you don't have strong hair
take some Biotin. It works!!!!

Now the bangs...they are talking about
in fashion...they are the best to change
your look without changing your overall
haircut!  Dying it pink (as above) is optional
if you want to change from BIG BANG to
BIG BADA BOOM!  I love the platinum with
the soft just won't work with me
in alot of ways.

Let's move on to more bang ideas!

Long blonde hair...ahhh! So pretty...
hair I always wanted...I should be
happy I "have" hair at all!!!

Oh I love this clean and
tailored.  Yummy color too!  Had
my hair like this once, it was

60's a go-go! If you have healthy
thick hair...this will definitely
make  a
Talk about gorgeous hair! Wow! Again
hair I wish I had.  The bangs the
soft waves..really pretty!
Camilla is so pretty - I think. This
is my favorite look on her....this
is going to be my new style.  I got
the bangs now I need the length!!!
Again always a favorite of mine.
Perfect face framing!
Basically same hair cut as above
only this girl has super thin hair.
Notice both hair thicknesses and color
can look fabulous!
This is my all time favorite! Hahahhah
Just kidding! Isn't this crazy? How did
they do that?  Do you know how many
cans of AquaNet they must have used?
She can probably scrape paint off of
a car with that hair! Yikes...

Well bangs have always done me
right.  I think I will stick with them.
Remember strive to wear what looks
great on you and not what every single
other girl/woman is wearing! Like
your clothes..only wear what you love and
looks great on YOU! Then, your theme song
will be...I feel pretty, oh so pretty...and
XO Carrie
