Bad Hair Year

I didn’t make have time to blog this morning since for some reason my ‘To Do’ list just keeps getting longer and longer.  When will it ever end! I have a school and unpacking and planning to do OH MY!   Yes planning – my girlfriends and I are headed to Lexington MA for a girls weekend in just 2 weeks and I being the borderline obsessive planner that I am, am feeling anxious because I haven’t done much research! Now I don’t need a detailed itinerary or anything but rather ideas of what we can do – I basically want to know everything before I get there so I can just relax and do things while we are there- logical right?  Anyways all that being said I also am attempting to do some planning for or DC trip this fall as well.  So if you have any Lexington MA or DC suggestions tell me!

Since I didn’t blog this morning I also neglected to photograph my breakfast of Me & Goji cereal with banana and coffee. However I did get a photo of lunch which was simple and yet healthy and delicious: spinach salad with mushrooms, chickpeas and balsamic and of course my Earthlust bottle filled with water.

So as my blog title says ….I am having a bad hair year and I finally made an appointment to get my hair cut- you are probably saying yeah so, what does this have to do with healthy living or veganism?  Well it has everything to do with healthy living! By taking care of ourselves and doing things that make us feel great and present ourselves well is all part of a healthy lifestyle.  Now apperance is something that has taken a back seat for me in the past few years, and no it is not everything and I am not trying to be vain but it does make a difference.  Since I started my IIN holistic health counselor program I have been reminded that things like taking care of yourself are important and since I will be starting to see clients in the near future I think I should look the part.  That all being said I am having a hair crisis- I have no idea what to do! My hair is long and a mess and needs to be fixed so do you have any suggestions on new looks?

Q: How often do you get your hair cut? or do other things for yourself?


  1. Great post, Lindsay! I’m a planner too — I’m doing a girls weekend with my aunt this weekend and girls weekend with my niece next weekend. I like to know what we’re doing but am fine with ditching plans and going with the flow.

    I am majorly into “self-care.” It took me years to get here. I get a massage once a month. It’s a luxury but I save for it (and buy a package deal for a discount and it keeps me going). And I love salon days! I’m a freak about getting my hair done. I was an ever six weeks gal, but that’s all changed because last weekend I got a MAJOR short hair cut. Which means I will need to go very four weeks now to maintain. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do 😉

    I can’t wait to see what you decide to do with your hair!

  2. Totally feel you on the planning thing Lindsay! I’m heading to Portland, ME next week and I am already researching places for dinner and brunch…I saw your post from your anniversary trip there and and checking out some of your suggestions 🙂 I also just got my hair done today, too, but am a little more high maintenance, I usually go about every 8 weeks: short hair! Can’t wait to see the pictures post-haircut!
