Stitch Family To Make A Family | Ruby Blue Studio

Hi, friends! Right now, as I type this, it is 11 pm at night. I was up, scrolling through Etsy, when I came across a gorgeous family portrait that was cross stitched. I immediately wanted to buy it so that I could stitch the girls, Jake, and myself. I found the owners Instagram and left a comment. It turns out Ris sells the actual, finished product. We got to chatting and I found out she is raising money for in-vetro fertilization (IVF). After reading one sentence, I knew I wanted to share her story, and her shop, with you guys.

 A little over a year ago I was getting out of an extremely emotionally abusive relationship. I was burned, hurt, and confused. I had sworn off love and relationships and only wanted myself from now on. But life intervened. At my friend’s birthday party, I saw a man with kind eyes. We talked all night and he never once made me feel fearful.

How To Go Days Between Hair Washes

how to go days between hair washes

Hello, my beautiful friends!!! As I write this, I am watching last nights American Horror Story, with all of the lights on, under a blanket, and the dogs right next to me. Oh. And every door locked to the extremity because – I am afraid of everything. Watching anything remotely scary doesn’t work.

Back to the hair. In high school, I had to wash my hair every day or it would be a major grease ball. Dry shampoo wasn’t a thing of normality quite yet (dang, did I just admit I’m old?), so washing my blonde, oil piled hair every morning before school was a necessity. Due to the constant need to keep my hair looking nice and pulled together, I was constantly rinsing the natural oils from my hair which prevented my locks from growing and being healthy. I had such short hair and it looked yellow and brassy from the constant washing. It also wouldn’t hold any style a few hours into the day. It was beyond annoying.

How To Go Days Between Hair WashesOmg. Look at those greasy roots. Lord, help that hair. Thank goodness I’m not in 2012 anymore.

When I got to college, I had no time to wash, dry, and style my hair every morning. I looked into so many options of what to do and started training my hair. I picked up a bottle of dry shampoo and set my plan into motion.
