What I truly love about being a unicorn is that you do NOT have to have it all together. Let’s face it… most of the time I am the hot mess express running on dry shampoo, pizza… and probably some tequila! HAHA, but for reals though.
To be completely honest.. I was a blonde for MANY, MANY years, but I was always dreaming about the day I would dye my hair purple. Don’t get me wrong I loved being a blonde (and secret: I am still a blonde under all this purple) but I wanted the royalness of my spirited inner princess to show on the outside. I don’t think I have ever grown out of living life in a twirling tea cup wearing the world’s largest tutu adorned with a marvelous tiara. Lol, I just died laughing typing that. Sometimes fairytale daydreams are my vacation in the middle of the work week.
Wellllll in the beginning of this purple adventure I didn’t exactly think about how this lovely color in my hair would affect my fashion choices as a newbie fashion blogger. With no cares, I went for it! I don’t regret it for one stinking second. Quickly I decided that I am not changing my fashion choices to better suit my hair. I wear the things I love and my hair is just that, HAIR! I choose the same colors, styles, and patterns as I would have as a blonde and I can honestly say I have truly grown into my meant to be unicorn self.
You know you’re doing something right when your doctor (male, straight, doesn’t care a lick about fashion) walks into the room to discuss you possibly being anemic and immediately wants the details on your purple hair. Yeah, men definitely pay attention to the color of your hair ladies. He wanted to know how I get it like this, how long does it take/last, what are other people’s reactions when they see me in public. He was truly interested and shocked when I gave him all the details and made sure to tell me that he thinks it looks great and I wear it well! In that moment, it was like God said silently “I made you the perfect little unicorn you’re and people love you for it.”
I say allllllll of this unicorn mumbo jumbo to you because we’re all some sort of unicorn and we should own that part of ourselves. No one person is the same, although I swear there are other blogger babes I am total spirit animals with haha! Don’t be afraid to Go For It. You will be shocked how whatever it is you have dreamed of doing will fit you like a glove. You can change people’s perspectives with going for your own unicorn self! I promise, I am shocked everyday by how much people are awed by my hair and as they say “how you wear it so well!” and they never thought fashion colored hair could be worn so well.
I hope that I am able to help give you that extra nudge to be your true self without worry. It may even take a little while to fall into where it feels like home, but I promise lovely… fall graciously and beautifully into it.
