The second time's a charm?

Often I get an idea stuck in my head, and the more I try to banish it, the more it nags me and leads to an unfortunate increase in my inner dialogue/debate requisite. Here is one example of many.

When I was 20, I had my nostril pierced. It was a teeny tiny, itty bitty, little bit of diamond glitter on my nostril. I loved it. There was nothing punky or hard-looking about it. Unfortunately, my impatience got the best of me and I changed the jewelry out before it was completely healed, thus leading to swelling and convincing me that I needed to remove the stud in order to avoid scarring.

Nearly seven years later, the notion to try again has rapidly increased from a "perhaps" to a "I think I might really really really want to."

Although I currently have a few girlfriends with petite, adorable little nostril piercings, my interest was really piqued when I finally discovered my hairdresser, Marci Cutler, several months ago. I have always wondered how I would feel about a nose piercing after having children. Not only does Marci have four daughters, but she also has several grandsons, and she is so cute and put together. More to the point, she has a teeny tiny little nostril piercing.

Marci's little stud in no way detracts from her soft, classic appearance. On the other hand, it serves as a small enhancement. I have to say...I really like the idea. I just find the look very femine and pretty.

What are your thoughts?

  1. I love it... and have actually been considering it myself! I think the one in the picture would be perfect on almost anyone... just a little addition, but not too much.

  2. I've wanted one for years! Teaching public schools wasn't the time, etc, and I don't think I'll ever do it, but I love how they look!

  3. Love them, at 51 I would get one....but I am scared of needles....just sayin' My daughter has one and I think it's adorable!
