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 is a bipolar veteran and just wants 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.
