Happy Friday my loves. I hope you all have a great and exciting weekend ahead. It’s almost summer and I’m excited about this new hair cut I wanted to share with you. I never went this short before and I had no idea if I could actually like my look without longer hair. To be honest, I had no choice  but to cut almost all my hair off. Let me tell you little story of how I got this very short hair cut. Are you ready?

Last year, I decided to be a vegan for all the good reasons. I wanted to put an end to eating unhealthy food that we thought was healthy and safe the lives of all the poor animals on our beautiful planet. I’m also a big animals lovers as I own a lovely and sweet dog name Bella whom I love with all my heart. So I became a vegan, it was hard at the start but it felt like it was meant for me. I was having so much fun discovering all the new vegan restaurants, apps and even connecting with other vegans. I felt stronger and healthier especially while practicing yoga, I could eat a lot and had nothing to worry about because I  knew I was eating healthy vegan food. My friends and family questioned me at first but got eventually comfortable with my new lifestyle.

After 6-7 months of being a vegan, I started to notice so many changes in my body. I lost a lot of weight, my face started to break out really bad (which I never had before) and most importantly my hair. My hair started to fall out like crazy, they were everywhere from the bathroom to the bedroom. I didn’t know what was happening to me or what was going on in my body. As a Health Science student, I knew it was something that my body was reacting to. So I decided to seek a doctor for help. Before seeing the doctor, I tried to donate blood and I was told I couldn’t because my iron level was too low. I knew I had to change something as soon as possible. So I spoke to my doctor and he pointed that the cause of it all was the vegan diet. I wasn’t getting all the nutrients my body needed to function right. Well I was missing a lot of them which caused my skin to react and almost all my hair to fall out over time.

I didn’t wanted to accept that being vegan was treating me this way till my entire body changed, I started to get weaker, sleep less, more breakouts (which I had to cover with a lot of makeup) and very uneven hair. So I had to say bye to my vegan lifestyle and became a Pescetarian (I only eat fish no meat). I’m not saying that being a vegan is very bad for you, all I’m saying is, being vegan is a full time job and it’s not meant for everyone until you take it very serious. I actually loved being a vegan, I just didn’t have time to make it another full time job which taught me a lesson which meant I had to cut all my hair off.  Be very careful with the choices you make. If you want to be a vegan, make sure you see your doctor and be on it with taking your vitamins and other vegan pills that’s needed everyday to balance things out.

I feel like a new person now with all the bad and damaged hair gone. It might take some time for the hair to grow back but for now I am liking this look especially with this beautiful green and silky saboskirt set on. I feel like a queen. How beautiful is this outfit? It’s such a great color to wear both in the spring and summer. One thing I really love about this set is the wrap feature which makes it wearable in different ways. It’s like you have a new skirt and blouse again for a different occasion.
