When someone comes into your life, even for a moment
They are there to serve a purpose
Some will make a giant impact on your life
Some, very little
But each one is just as important as the next on your journey
Some are here to teach you what you don’t want
And others to show you what you do
It’s all a part of this crazy thing we call life
So embrace every unique soul that crosses your path
You never know what they could end up meaning to you someday or what you could end up meaning to them

Who shares her gifts, and light, and love with those around her. Who follows her dreams wherever they take her.

Be the girl who decided to go for it and don’t look back.

No but seriously, this seems to be the trending question in this year’s Hair and Fashion. Are bangs back in…? Not side bangs (those have been around for a while now), but the full force fringe bangs? I personally LOVE them. I like the way bangs can frame any girl’s face and make her look like an instant movie star:

I mean, if that isn’t movie star quality right there, I don’t know what is!
