First Head Covering...

Well the hair has been coming out quite rapidly this week. I still have hair. It's just become VERY thin, and is falling out EVERYWHERE. It's worse than a cat right now.

 
I'm thinking Justin will have the pleasure of shaving what's left very soon. Primarily, so we both don't choke on what keeps getting in our food and mouth... :D
 
 

 
So, I've started wearing pretty head wraps. I'm actually quite enjoying it. There is just something so pretty about head coverings. :D
 

 
These shirt and shorts I found this week at Clothes Mentor. And I am just loving how comfy they are, and the color combo. 
 
Oh, the price was pretty awesome too, at just 14 bucks for the pair.(the shorts still had a $60 price tag on them...) :D
 

 
 
 
I learned how to tie this covering via a Youtube tutorial. It's very simple using any type of scarf, and very quick too. :)



 
"Sometimes you must allow your eyes to adjust to a truer shape of something you'd once molded
and possibly loved but perhaps never wanted. Something to unravel now, straight from these roots.
... Something that at some point, you loosened your fingers around. Something that at some stage, you finally outgrew. So allow this chapter to hold you in darkly wrapped nights. While allowing desires to just be desires before lighting that flame stemmed from your longing and churned into fuel, so when it is time, you'll have enough strength to surrender to fire, that holds the burn long enough to finally take flight."
-Victoria Erickson
 
So, any new outfits you are loving lately? Any great deals shopping? Or, is the LORD teaching you to adjust to a new stage in life?
 
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. You look gorgeous! I love the headcovering.....in an attempt to turn a negative in to a positive, enjoy some of the ease of not having to take the time to fix your hair each day - a headscarf on and you're on your way! Praying for you!

  6. I really like the head covering and the outfit, it is so difficult to find a good pair of shorts that is not too short and not frumpy. You look lovely!

  7. Oooh, Angel, you look beautiful and so chic!! I really like the dark color for the headscarf; it makes you look like you're headed for New York or Jerusalem or some other sleek, ultramodern city. All you need is a big pair of shades!! ;-)

    Seriously, though, I'm glad to see you up and about for even a little while, and I hope you're managing your side effects well. I also hope you're feeling strong enough to do some things that you love to do. Thank you so much for swinging by my blog and leaving such encouraging comments - you always brighten my day more than I can say!! <3

    Love to you, dear sister!

    Hugs and warm coffee smells to you,
    Vicki

  8. You look lovely! I wore head covering for lent a few years back and I found that wearing a base layer under the actual scarf can really help it stay on. I bought a lot of lovely scarves for little money from hijab sellers - I figured if there are ladies who know about head coverings AND don't want to bankrupt themselves buying them, Muslim ladies will be the ones! Now I have a lot of beautiful scarves that I can wear either as a head covering or just a normal scarf.

Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE to hear from you all out there. Just please remember to keep everything kind and Christ-like. In the words of that wise papa rabbit, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". :)
