It was such an amazing experience to attend the Alpha Xi Delta UAB Scholarship Tea! Deciding on what college to attend is quite the challenge, but the amazing ladies of the Alpha Xi Delta chapter answered many of my questions about UAB campus life. Wow…hard to believe I turn eighteen in November, and go to college in a year….where has the time gone? Wait, that’s what my mom is supposed to say! :)

The VIP’s New Do with Rachel Edmonds

If you live around the Starkville, MS area and are looking for a fantastic hair cut and color…then Rachel Edmonds is your girl!

Last week I got a bit of a hair makeover by the lovely Rachel Edmonds of Mia Salon in Starkville, Mississippi. It was a slight dramatic change…Rachel cut 5 inches off of my curly locks…I was a bit nervous, but the end result was super fabulous…I feel all bouncy and pouncy :)

I  had to share my ‘do makeover with all of my lovely readers.  I knew that it might be a shocker to see me in future blogs with much shorter hair without a background stroy!

The above picture was taken by my mom…bless her and her type 1 diabetes!  We had to hurry straight to lunch so she could eat before her “sugar” crashed…so my hair is still damp…but even a bit damp…it looks fantastic!  Thanks to a wonderful cut and color!

Fall Hair Tips by Rachel Edmonds:

  • After summer, hair is dry from all the summer sun…So, definitely moisturize and trim those ends.
  • Go with a caramel or beige color, if you are a blonde, and a warm, rich brown color, if you are a brunette.
  • Cute headbands and messy buns are stylish for fall!

Aren’t those tips great! And..isn’t Rachel just VIP fabulous!  Thanks, Rachel, you are a doll!

Join me next time for a spectacular blog about a fantastic new shop I ran across while antiquing and picking with my mom in Springville, Alabama! You will not want to miss this humdinger of a blog, I promise:)
