Third Day Hair Social Media and Debute

You already know it’s happening, but I’m here to make it official.
High Heeled Mama is turning over to Third Day Hair…this Monday!  That’s just a few short days away (can you even take the excitement?), at which time a redirect will be put into place to guide all of my lovelies (that’s you!) to the new space.
I surely hope to see you all there!  
If you follow me on any of my social media (please do!), then you may already know that I’ve done some switching over and renaming… twitter, instagram, pinterest, and facebook will all be called Third Day Hair now, as well as Bloglovin’.
Don’t follow me yet?  No problem…the new site will make it easy to do so with icons at the top of the page.  But in case you’re as eager as I am, you can do so here….now…
Check it out:
((Please note…facebook has yet to change the title, it will be corrected in just under two weeks…and pinterest has yet to have any boards created, but will be creating some awesome follow worthy stuff this weekend))
So go ahead and click through and follow all and I will see you again Monday morning on a new site with a fresh take…
Happy weekend lovelies!!
 www.thirddayhair.com((if you visit, don’t judge…it’s still a work in progress.  The new posts will be live Monday the 25th.  I am including this address to ensure that all my bloglovin’ followers can follow me there, too, when the time comes!))

Before And After: Kitchen

To the dismay of some of you, I was adamant that I not show after pictures of the house without first showing the befores.
I also didn’t want to show the befores without having any afters.
So, after working diligently for just over two weeks, among many other little projects within the house, the kitchen is the first room completely finished.
Sure, there’s always more to do…but for right now?  It. Is. Done.
Thanks to my dad in law and awesome hubby, all three light fixtures were replaced, an over-the-stove microwave was added, appliances were installed, the sink was swapped out, the faucet is brand spanking new, and even the door knobs were all changed out.
Here she is, kids, my pride and joy…the center of our home!
Before and After…side by side for a full visual comparison in all of their unedited glory!!:
 
Before:
 After:
And now, just the afters if you please:
 Decorations wise, there’s still lots to do.  In fact, I haven’t even unpacked most of our wall decor…for any of the rooms!  But as far as this chaotic house and long moving in process goes?  Kitchen. Is. Done!!!
 
Watchya think?
 
ALSO: Don’t forget the $1000 cash giveaway is still going on…but we’re winding down!  Roll the dice and enter to win!
 
AND: If you haven’t heard (how could you not have heard?) HHM is re-branding!  Third Day Hair is COMING SOON and it is going to be BEYOND.
 
STAY TUNED!!

High Heeled Mama is RE-BRANDING

It's finally happened…I've grown out of my own shoes.
And I loved these shoes.
Ultimately, though, it's time for HHM to make the transition to a new title, a new domain, and a new way of posting.  My hope is to do this as smoothly as possible, and without losing the interest of my faithful friends and followers who have supported HHM all along!
It has meant so much to me, this little blog of mine, but after a year of working on my “blogging voice” and exploring my own creativity, I've decided that the shoe just no longer fits.
And for once, I'm not going to cram my foot in to wear it!
Here's the thing…I wanted us all to make a fresh start together.  I wanted my move to coincide with the web change, and I wanted a seamless transition with minimal effort.
Yea right.
I'm already a week behind on my new blog's debut and not a step closer, either.
Well, maybe a step.  I have purchased a new domain, and decided on the new title.  Wanna know what it is?  Patience, my dears.
Anyways, it's not like I haven't been thinking, planning, photographing, and writing bloggy things…I just have no place to post them at the moment.  They wouldn't fit in here on this page…and I want the new page to start with enough material to really showcase it's fresh appeal, and hopefully make y'all wanna come along for the ride.
Okay, so what's the name?  I'll give you a hint, I've said the phrase multiple times on here (and even more so in my real life), and I pretty much live the phrase twice a week.  
Ready?
Third Day Hair
It's exactly what it needs to be.  Unique.  Catchy.  Personal to me and my life.   
Soon, soon I'll have a blog site for you to visit for all the fashion, creativity, and art you can handle.  For now?  How about if I satisfy you with some before and after shots of the new crib?  Maybe some updates on the who's who and what's what in the daily happenings around here?
Something.
Anything!
Thanks so much for your patience and support.  I hope to continue seeing your bright and shining faces around here, around there…basically anywhere!
Smooches!

Go!Sac Review and Giveaway

As promised, I wanted to keep you busy with a little giveaway…it might not be all that fashionable, but you can’t argue that it’s not functional!
And who doesn’t want something handy and practical?
So, if you’re like me, then you never really had a true diaper bag.  I was adamant that I could fit everything I needed into an over sized purse. 
 Fashion over function.
And I did okay…until the babe grew and our outings went from a run to the store to a morning at the park or an afternoon on the beach, and I realized I didn’t want my Steve Madden over sized bag to have grass stains on it or end up full of sand.
Bummer.
Thank goodness for Go!Sac products, which are created to be functional and durable.  And when you’re done with them?  They are created to all but disappear…
Case in point…last week, the hubs and I went on a date (for the first time in months…MONTHS…I might add) and when I needed to pack up my girl’s necessities to spend a few hours with the sitter, I immediately reached for my carry all.  
It had been stored neatly.  That’s saying a lot considering our house is currently in disarray.  But there it lay, cute, compact, taking up a mere five inches of space.
But when I opened it and began shoving just the “must haves” inside, I was astounded by the amount of room it had inside.  We went from just needing her dinner, jammies, and diapers, to her dinner, jammies, diapers, two stuffed animals, a blankie, a favorite book, a couple of toys, and the ipad on which she could watch her beloved “turtles”.
It all fit. 
 
And there was room to spare.
 
Don’t take my word for it, get your own and test it out.  I can tell you this, the design is simple and meant to fulfill a need.  Plus, I wouldn’t hesitate to drag this bad boy to any number of ourdoor locations…knowing it would last and hold all of my many “gotta have” items.
 
Not a fan of the carry all design?
 
How about the backpack?
 
 
Or is the duffel bag more your style?
 
 
Or maybe it’s the tote that your after?
 
 
Whichever your personal style may be, the choice is yours… shape, color, you pick.  All you have to do to win it is enter in the giveaway.
 
So, what are you waiting for?
