I love second-hand and consignment shopping, but many people I know have never gotten into it. This seems like a shame to me. Shopping second hand is a great way to get amazing pieces at a fraction of their original cost. Plus, it's great for the world--I'm currently feeling very inspired by Emma Watson's ethical fashion Instagram account.

You guys! I'm blonde! Since our wedding I've been feeling like I could use a drastic change, and the thought popped into my head that I could go blonde again (during my college years I was a blonde as well) and yesterday I decided to take the plunge.

I thought I'd share my experience with you in case it proves to be useful. Apologies in advance for the low quality pictures--they were all taken with my phone in low-light settings.
