I named this blog Mama Has PINK Hair because, well, I had pink hair. But now my pink is the new red. This time the color is so deep, I think it might even fool a hair drug test!
That’s right, I am back to dying my gorgeous locks down to various shades of dark red.
I found that the pink was washing out my face too much, since I am already so fair-skinned. Not only that, but summer is over and autumn is here. The colors for cooler months are more serious, earthy, darker tones.
But don’t worry, I won’t be renaming my blog PINK is the New Red or anything like that. I still love the name and I love the design and avatar that my good friend Nicole over at Needs More Crayons and 350 Preheat created for me. That won’t be changing.
However, there will be a few changes in the content of this blog. I started out wanting to be a mommy blogger, talking about recipes, crafts, homeschooling, etc. I am going in a different direction. First, I do like to cook and bake, even though I am rather new at it (I taught myself when I got married,) but we are going back on the low-carb train. Not just to diet, but to live the low-carb lifestyle. As I have blogged before, it makes me feel better and when I eat starchy foods I physically hurt. I also find that my bipolar symptoms lessen when I don’t eat so many carbs.
Speaking of bipolar, I am really open about my mental illness and have learned so much through the years. Some of it was by researching, but there are so many embarrassing situations and real world experiences that I want to share with others. Whether you are recently diagnosed, are struggling with a family member who has a mental illness or are a bipolar veteran and just want to read, I am here for you. If you don’t want to comment publicly, then feel free to send me an email at Mama Has PINK Hair.
I also want to talk about outdoor activities and fitness. I really love nature and the outdoors, but I have social anxiety (or social phobia as some doctors still call it,) but I am working to change that. I think it would be really good for my girls to get out more.
Another thing I am passionate about is being a work at home mom (WAHM.) Working with young children can be difficult and I would love to share my experiences with you and I hope you feel free to do the same in the comments.
Remember, Pink is the New Red just refers to the content, not the actual blog itself.
