On new hair, and feeling beautiful

new hair

So, here's my new 'do. And it probably doesn't look all that new to anyone but me. It's still long even though I came thisclose to chopping it all off. I'm just not ready. It is a lot lighter, which I like. It was like an instant tan. I've been pretty pasty lately.


I have a new plan, though- I am going to grow out my bangs and get a much shorter, stylish look in the near future.

And I know it's just hair, but you know what?

I care about stuff like that. I do.

I care about how I look and I want to have nice hair. It makes me feel good, when I look good.


I like to feel beautiful.

Why does this feel like a confession? Isn't it ok to want to feel and look beautiful?

And that doesn't mean I always have to be all dolled up, - most times it does take how I feel on the inside to shine thru on the outside, but lots of times? It's because I feel good in the clothes I'm wearing or I'm having a good hair day or did my eye makeup just right.

Lots of outward beauty stuff.

And truly, I don't think I'm a very pretty (on the outside) person. I have never been a "natural beauty", I don't usually like photos of me, and I don't even really like the photo I finally posted here.

I want to be pretty for my husband, and when out in public, and for my kids, and when I pass a mirror in my house.

I know these things shouldn't matter. But they do. To me.

Also?

I'm 33 years old and secretly want to get my nose pierced. [A teensy weensy tiny speck of a nose piercing], but I'm 33 years old and think I'm past the expiration date on that one. If you have one already, you're grandfathered in (I think that's how it works?) But for me to go get it done now? Aren't I a bit too old for that? I'm still not convinced.


Anyway.

I have new hair. And it makes me feel pretty.

  1. you KNOW how i feel about the nose piercing.

    {i'm free tomorrow night.}

    and here's a little Truth you know, but is always nice to hear. it IS truth....

    you are beautiful. perfectly, wonderfully made. in His perfect image. and you do a wonderful job showing it. shining it. EVEN if it doesn't always feel that way to you.

    your soul is beautiful. and that IS enough, but you DO have the blessing of being gorgeous on the outside too.

    love you, sweet friend!

  2. Hey, I think the hair looks really good!! Great job on using that window light for your self portrait too. Dropped by as I'm going to feature your blog on mine. I should have a posting with a link on Tuesday. Look for it then.

    Take care,
    Steve @ Region Weddings

  3. When I first started reading your blog you were pregnant with Ivy and your header had that gorgeous picture of you in that field of flowers. I was instantly envious -- you are gorgeous!

    I feel much as you do. It theoretically-in-a-perfect-world SHOULDN'T matter... but of course it does. Still, looking good isn't the centre of my life; I think the important thing is having my priorities straight. :)

    And sometimes something you DO can make you feel beautiful, can't it? That's why I love singing... which, coincidentally, is a post I'm working on right now. :)

  4. I got my nose pierced this year at 32 years old after having my first child. A very small one, like you mentioned. I like it just fine and I don't feel like I'm too old :-)

  5. i'm new to your blog and i think that's the first picture i've seen of you. And coming upon it & your post in my reader my initial impression was - wow, she's pretty. :D

    and no, i don't think it's ever too late to get a nose ring. there is such a thing as a wrong nose for nose piercings - which i have and you don't. so go do it for my sake. ;)

  6. i've always disliked the age constraints society puts on us - besides, didn't He tell us not to be of the world? doesn't that mean to not conform to society? (it does to me.)

    He was rebellious. & i have no qualms about being likewise.

    (do it!)

    also, thanks for being so open. you, love, & beth have been big inspirations to me lately to (a) take more pictures & (b) be more open with my love. funny how He sends us people who don't even know they're the ones being sent. [thank you.]

  7. You look simply stunning. I wish I could pull of the long hair half as well as you do. Mine always ends up looking stringy and dirty no matter how recently I washed it. Yours looks healthy and full and frames your face perfectly.

    I don't know about the nose ring. Not that I think you shouldn't get one but because I too constantly wonder "Am I too old for this?" I say, if you want it, go for it. You can always take it out if you don't like it, right?

  8. i turned 32 last may and do you know what i did to celebrate? i took my kids to the zoo to make them think it was all about them, and on the way home, i popped the baby in the sling and marched the other three into the tattoo parlor and got my nose pierced.

    because i have wanted to for more than half my life. and do you know what? i lovelovelovelovelove it.

    hair grows back and piercings come out.

    and also, i can't stop re-reading love's comment. you two are such a blessing to me.

  9. I really want to get my eyebrow pierced, but I need to do it with enough time that I can put a spacer in at work. So, June?

    And, Steph, I wish I could make you see how beautiful you are. I say that not as someone who loves you, but as someone who would truly, honestly walk past you on the street and notice how much beauty and light you radiate. Believe in your beauty, because you have it.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I like your hair! I actually think bangs really suit you - they're sort of quirky and interesting and seem to match your style quite well. And, while we're on the subject of that, I think you're gorgeous! Seriously! In just about every photo I've seen of you, I've always thought that you had such unique, pretty look and a lovely smile. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to look pretty for yourself, your significant other, or whomever... just know that you're managed to accomplish it, and with kindness grace to boot. :-)

  11. I love you hair! I think you're beautiful, and its so wonderful that you think so too... I look at all these beautiful women all around me, IRL and online, and I'm so amazingly jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The hair is gorgeous. So is the honesty.

    And for the record, I have my nose pierced. I'm turning 31 on Friday. I have one tattoo. I'm getting another one. I say go for it. Even if it's just for a season, it's you right now. And that's okay to honour.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think you are very beautiful. And I love the new 'do.

    I got my nose pierced when I was 30 or 31 and loved it. I took it out a couple of months ago and really want it back.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You look fantastic. :) And you might as well get that nose pierced, you have no reason not to!!
    I will soon be going to get new highlights in my hair. I love how it makes me feel when my hair looks fresh.
    When school is out I am going to let my little girls go get a stripe of color (purple, blue, green or pink) in their hair. I might even join them, I think I am too old, but why let it stop me?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Stephanie, I think you're gorgeous! And if YOU want to get your nose pierced, then do it! I think it looks great on beautiful women and I think it would look great on you!

    BTW, I would die to have your hair.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I say if you want a nose piercing, get one. I'm considering one myself. I'm 27, which, also puts me outside the cusp of "young enough" for it.

    Love the hair. I totally get you on caring about how you look. It IS okay to want to look good. And if anyone tells you otherwise, it's because they are jealous that you are prettier than they are. (I think you're gorgeous, not that my opinion matters much!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. You are beautiful! The hair looks good!

    I agree, it's important to look good. When you look good, you naturally feel good. And feeling good is healthy for you, your family and your relationships with hubby.

    Get the nose pierced! You have the perfect nose for it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I meant to tell you today how good your hair looked, how good all of you looked!!

    You don't look like a mom of 4 kids and 33, you could totally get away with getting your nose pierced.

    You are truly beautiful, both inside and out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Steph,
    If you want to get your nose pierced, do it!!!!! It doesn't matter what others think about you. What matters is how you feel about yourself. If you want a piercing....go for it. :-)

    A few years ago, when I turned 50, I got a tattoo. I'd always wanted one but never had the nerve. If someone doesn't approve or like my little cow, it's their problem, not mine!!! (Actually, I've gotten lots of compliments from people of all ages. LOL)

    Maybe it's an "age" thing. The older you get, the more you realize YOUR life is about YOU....not how others perceive you. KWIM?

    OK....I'm done babbling. Have a great week my dear!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are NEVER to old to get a nose piercing. Especially the teeny tiny itsy bitsy kind. Which is the kind I have.

    Honestly, I have always thought you were beautiful. I love your style and your hair and I love how you shine through everything. There is always a glimmer of beauty in every post your write and every picture you take, even if the topic isn't beautiful or isn't meant to be. You have a beautiful spark in you that shines at all times. You may not see your beauty all the time but I do.

  21. steph, i got my nose pierced in 2007 (the day after the blogher conference) and i ended up taking it out a few months later because it was hurting and my nostril kept getting infected.

    my sister-in-law, who's a year younger than me, asked me if i was going through a mid-life crisis. ha ha!

    i miss it. i contemplate getting it done again and leaving it alone (i'm sure i touched it way too much)

    ReplyDelete
  22. You're 33?! Impossible!
    Your going to be one of those flawless 60 year olds who everyone thinks is 40 -- you'll have grandchildren who people will think are you sons and daughters ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the hair & the highlights! You look beautiful! I feel the same way you do, " I want to look pretty"!

    Hey if you want your nose pierced then pierce it. If it doesn't look good or you don't like it just take it out!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love your look it suits you and your beauty. You have the kinda beauty I long for, the naturally graceful beauty. I am going to get my nose pierced on my 25 birthday(shh don't tell Casey).

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know you aren't digging for compliments here but I think you're beautiful. I love your bangs!

    And I think you should get a nose piercing. I've always wanted one too but don't think I have the look to be able to pull it off. You totally do! Do it! Do it!

    And looking beautiful is important to me too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your hair looks great I think it's just fine to want to look and feel nice. When I first became a SAHM I remember one of my girlfriends telling me that she would stay in her pj's all day and not do her make-up if she wasn't going out. I decided right there that I was going to get ready even if I wasn't going out for the day. I wanted to look put together for my kids and my hubby. Of course there are pj days at our house and days that are make-up free, but they are few and far between. Plus when I feel better about myself I'm productive!

    I'm almost 30 and I really want a nose piercing too. Just little diamond stud to add a bit of sparkle. I've been vetoed by everyone in the family though! :(

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your eyes really pop out with the new color...Please, for your mom, Don't do the nose thing...I cringe at that thought, probably because I've had 3 nose surgeries. You are beautiful the way you are.

    ReplyDelete
  28. p.s. please don't listen to Kiki!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very beautiful hair cut. You are so pretty! And honestly if you want your nose pierced, go for it! I know plenty of woman who have it done and some are older then you even!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love your new hair, it looks very pretty. And I do think you are a natural beauty and your family probably thinks so too.

    As far as a nose piercing I think a tiny little diamond stud would be acceptable, even if you are 33. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I got my nose pierced at 27 and I'm so glad I did! I love it. I say go for it!
    You're hair looks great, BTW. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your hair is beautiful and so are you! I am 31 and want my nose pierced too. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. you are NOT too old to get your nose pierced :) I'm 29 and have mine pierced...did it about 4 years ago i guess...it's small, and pretty, and I never get sick of it...and I get tons of compliments from all sorts of people, so I don't think it's as "looked down upon" as some people might have ya think! ANYway...gorgeous hair as well!

    ReplyDelete
  34. you're gorgeous, inside and out. but it is nice to hear that everyone has those kinds of issues. everyone wants to be pretty, everyone wants to be admired. human nature. geez, even our puppy likes to be beautified!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You and Your hair look beautiful! I feel the same way about wanting to look good and feel good, I know it's an outside thing, but why shouldn't our outside, match the beauty on the inside! I just posted about nearly the same thing, but it was about my son. That outside looking good really does help in soooo many ways!

    ReplyDelete
  36. gorgeous. and even though I am grandfathered in with my nose ring- people who see my ring have no idea when I got it...once you have it it will be yrs! xoxo timeless. I will be an old woman and have it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You're gorgeous! I've always thought that.

    I think it feels like a confession to admit that you want to feel pretty because as women in our culture that's one of those double standards we have to live with. We're expected to be modest and not concerned w/ our appearance lest we be perceived as vein...yet at the same time our culture puts HUGE premiums on being attractive as women.

    That being said. 33 is NOT "too old" for a nose ring! I think the fact that there are so many people in the 29-39 age range who are now being "grandfathered into" their piercings just proves that it IS generationally appropriate for people in that age range. It doesn't matter if you got it when you were "a kid" or now...Just get it! --and I'm not saying that I would say someone 40, 50, 60...is too old either. If someone wants a piercing they should get one...but I definitely don't think it's even rebellious for a 33 year old!

    I think it would be super cute. But maybe I'm biased because I LOVE my nose stud. Yes, I've had it for ten years...but everytime I hear someone wants to get one, I encourage them, because I like mine that much still.

    Also, don't know if you read her at all...but Crunchy Chicken just got her's pierced. She's in her 30's too! I don't think she has a picture of it on her blog, but maybe you can see the one on her FB?

    http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?pid=1160382&id=1154493230

    Go for it! It will be super cute...especially when you get an awesome new haircut again!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was, "wow, she's pretty". Then I thought, "man, I love her hair"!
    I have really enjoyed discovering and reading your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh my word. I think you are GORGEOUS, inside and out. I'm shocked to hear you say you don't think you're a natural beauty, because YOU ARE.

    And no way are you too old for a nose piercing. Go for it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Um, hello?! You are a VERY pretty (on the outside) person. On the inside too!

    As far as the nose piercing, I'm not sure how I feel. At 33, I feel too old for it now, but I do wish I'd gotten one when I was younger. So, in other words, I can't help you with that one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am approaching 33 and have wanted a nose piercing for years! So no, you are not too old!
    PS, you are gorgeous and I love the hair :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. DO IT! Get your nose pierced! Okay, I'm not yet 30 and my nose features a small ring...but I don't think it matters whether your 20 or 50. DO IT! ^_^ That is all.

    Ps. this is my first post I've read of yours and you look rather lovely to me.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You. look. stunning.

    And I vote yes on the piercing, just so you know.

    :-)

    I care about being pretty too, and there's nothing wrong with that at all. It is what's driving me to lose weight right now.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the hair & that you are able to say that you're beautiful. As women we are so quick to put ourselves down & it's not healthy.

    Also, if you want a nose-ring go for it. Why not? It's art & not that different IMO than having your ears pierced.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I wouldnt have guessed you were 33 and am laughing at you that you don't think you're a natural beauty...you are! If my 3 year old was talking to you she'd tell you that you're "boo-ty-ful".

    As for the nose ring? I was 27 when I got mine. I had the teensiest diamond in my nose. Loved it. Took it out when I had a baby though since I was concerned about her pulling it out. It made me feel pretty too!

    It can always grow in if you change your mind later it will always grow in! Go for it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm totally going to get my nose pierced when I turn 30 next year. I've been talking about it for a while now, and if I still want to get it done then, I'm going for it! Or should it be a Cupcake '11 event? :)

    I know what you mean. I've been thinking of cutting my hair short. Really really short, but I'm not ready. And I don't have long hair to begin with, but it's something.

    You are gorgeous :) Inside and out, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  47. You, of course, are absolutely beautiful. I just love your honesty-- who doesn't want to feel beautiful, at least some of the time? I also think you should GO FOR IT! regarding the nose piercing! Who cares about age? You certainly do not look a day closer to 30! No one would think twice.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Honestly, you look beautiful in that picture. :) The new hair is making you feel beautiful because you really do look beautiful.

    Have you ever read the book Captivating by Stasi Eldridge? She writes about how God created us to appreaciate beauty -- not just landscape but also our physical apprearances. I know we're taught that the beauty on the inside is all that should matter, but I honestly believe God made women beautiful and He made us to want to feel beautiful. Stasi Eldridge explains in much better. :) I finally started feeling like it was OK to get my hair cut and get a pedicure every now and then after I read that part of the book.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well, I think you are pretty. I want to look pretty. My weight is my big issue - it makes me feel somewhere between hideous and kind of okay looking. I'm too heavy now. So, I am working on it and why? Because I want to look good. And I don't think there is anything wrong with that. Not in the least.

    Great hair by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I JUST Twittered that I want to get my nose pierced. I went to get it done in college and the piercing place was out of teeny tiny stud that I wanted, and I never went back. My husband says I can get it done once I get a job (still searching).

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love it. nothing feels better than walking out of the salon with sexy hair! And I cant ever get it to look as good as they do!! You look fantastic. Got mine cut on Thursday and should have taken a photo bc it hasnt looked as good since!

    ReplyDelete
  52. That is a really beautiful picture of you!

    ReplyDelete
  53. You're gorgeous. Truly beautiful, inside and out. I love your hair. And your pretty blue eyes.

    And pierce your nose if you wanna. It doesn't matter what age you are if you want to do it. :)

  54. Hey, I am 33, 4 kids, and have a double eyebrow piercing!!

  55. Steph, first off, the hair looks great, I love the color!

    Second, I don't even know you (IRL) but I want to kick your butt! You not only seem like an absolutely amazing and beautiful person on the inside, but you are downright gorgeous on the outside as well. And I'm not one to say that if I don't mean it (although I always try to be kind I don't lie about crap like that).

    Seriously, Ivy is lucky that she's turning out to look like you!

    (and I think you should go for the nose piercing. My Aunt showed up at my grandmother's funeral, she was in her 50's and she had just gotten her belly button pierced ----she's obviously the free spirit of the family---but I think you should do it now rather than worrying about what others think. You can always take it out later!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love the hair! And as for the nose ring? I say go for it! You have a good nose for piercing :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Please, please go get your nose pierced. I'm 29 and I'd like to feel like I can get mine pierced any darn time I wish! So... for my sake... get your nose pierced! You'll be adorable. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I so know what you mean. The lack of sleep that accompanies motherhood has aged me and I walk around with dark circles all the time! I'm all for doing what we can to make ourselves feel more beautiful. You are the type that would look good in a nose ring. I think you look beautiful in the photo!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love your bangs....they make me want bangs again! And...you are never to oldfor a nose ring...they are grat :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. So, you have got to be one of the most beautiful people I know. You don't look "done up" though. You just look so natural and pretty! You're hair is great, and you're makeup looks great too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. LOVE the hair. I have to wait 2 more months til my appointment and the hair is already in desperate need of freshening up!

    And, you are SO beautiful... and Ivy looks SO much like you, I see it so much in this pic. And we all know how beautiful Ivy is, so you can't deny now that you are as well!!! ;) And I say go for the nose... I want it too and at 26 I wonder the same thing, if I'm too old... if you do it I SO will!

    ReplyDelete
  62. You are gorgeous, inside and out.

    ReplyDelete
  63. This realy is shocking to me. You are beautiful and I mean that. I know that I rarely feel beautiful, but I think that we are forgetting something really important. We are made in the image of God. Because of that we truly are beautiful, inside and out.
    And as for the nose piercing, go for it. I don't think you're too old. We're the same age and I don't think I'm too old :)
    I love you Steph.

    ReplyDelete
  64. You are beautiful! As your first commenter stated - you are wonderfully and fearfully made. I do love the hair cut and always love how light and airy my hair feels after just a trim :)

    as for the nose piercing, go for it. My girlfriend just got her's at 32! And she loves that little diamond!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. If I lived by you, I would drive you to get your nose pierced and probably get one too.

    Because we are 33 and fabulous.

    xo.

    ReplyDelete
  66. You are simply gorgeous! On the outside and the inside!
    Oh, and if you want a nose ring - go for it! BTW, I think a teensy nose piercing would suit you. Heck, I think that even if you were 53 yrs old you should go for it! I had a friend that was 41 get her nose pierced.

    I've had mine since 26 and as I'm quickly approaching 34 I've been wondering if I'm too old to wear it. Then, I had a dream the other night of an old and gray me still wearing my itsy bitsy nose stud - I'll be a cool old granny I guess! ;) It's just a part of who I am (outward and inward).

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the new 'do and the highlights are lovely. You look gorgeous. I love a new 'do and color towards the end of winter, something lighter and spring-yer.....

    I'll add my two cents about feeling too old about the nose piercing.... Don't regret something. Sometimes I like to think about what I would either recommend to one of my girls OR what I would tell them about my life as I'm older. Do I want them to think there's something they can't do... just because of age or because of what someone may say about them? Nope. Then same goes for us.... right? There you go.

    Again you look lovely,
    Michelle

  68. Gorgeous my dear. Everyday. Inside and out.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think you are adorable Steph...seriously you ooze light and happiness! But its ok to want to feel pretty, I felt pretty one day last week and I carried myself different. Hope we both have more of those days this year!

    And I say go for the nose ring...the little diamond studs are cute!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love the hair - it looks beautiful! As do you in this and every other picture I've seen of you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. My two best friends got nose piercings in their 30s. They look great!

    I, however, am a huge wuss and would be perpetually picking at it while wincing.

    I would do my tongue though.

    You, friend, are lovely! On the outside, yes. But those that are pretty on the outside don't look it if they're insides are awful. And yours? Most certainly isn't. You're kind and sweet, and definitely bring sunshine where you go, even in the virtual world. Stand proud!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Well, for what is worth, I think you are beautiful! But if you are anything like me, sometimes it really doesn't matter what others say, it is how we feel in our hearts!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think it is funny that you don't think that you are very pretty or a natural beauty because when I saw the picture of you I thought, "Man I wish I looked like her!" Isn't it how that works? Somebody always looks better and it is so hard for us to see how beautiful we are, not only on the outside, but also on the inside! So, I am going to learn something from your post, that there is probably someone else who wishes they could look like me (who is just as beautiful) and remind myself that I am worth a lot! By the way, you can never be too old to get your nose pierced (which 33 is not even close to being too old for anything)! You should definitely do it!

  75. Love the hair. Fresh hair is always nice. I like to feel pretty too. My self worth is not all tied up in how others view me, but I like feeling like I look good. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be beautiful, inside AND outside.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Love the highlights! My hair is about the same color as yours and I haven't had highlights in awhile...but you've inspired me! A new 'do for spring! YAY! New hair makes everything better. :)

    As for the nose piercing...well sister, I am DYING for a tiny little speck of a piercing myself. (My husband thinks I've lost my mind!) I am 28 and while I don't think I'm too old, I think my poor hus wouldn't handle it so well. I'm working on that. Well that and I'm a teacher, in a pretty rural area where I seriously wonder if my job wouldn't be in jeopardy. (I'd like to think that no one would notice at work, but I'm pretty sure I'd be the talk of the town for a bit!)

  79. I secretly want to get my nose pierced too, but I keep wondering about when I have bad allergy attacks and sneeze and sneeze and sneeze.

  80. Me too with the nose piercing - my husband thinks I'm nuts and let's face it, I would probably never be brave enough to do it!

  81. I think you are beautiful - I've always thought that. I just got my 1st tattoo 2 weeks ago - and I just turned 38. I think that it's good to do what you want to do sometimes - whether it be a nose ring or a tattoo! Whatever makes you happy.

  86. I'm WAY behind in leaving comments on my favorite blogs, but I have to tell you that I read almost all of your posts as soon as you hit "publish." You always say the most profound, real, authentic things - and your pictures are always wonderful too.

    Speaking of pictures, you look BEAUTIFUL. Your green eyes. Your flawless skin. Your new 'do. All of it. Inside and Out.
