Default My first compliment

While I was out and about after work, I stopped by my health food store to pick up some flaxseeds (to make fsg. I'm so excited!), I ended up getting kiss my face gel that smells like grapefruit too, yumm.

Anyway, while checking out, the girl at the register told me I had pretty hair. (insert smiling blushing happy smiley here)
My first compliment since CG. Actually its a first for me from a stranger. I never get told I have pretty hair really. I guess cause everyone sees me with curly hair everyday.

Now I'm rambling. But I'd thought I'd share what happened to me today. It made me feel good about my hair ( even though I don't think it looks that great right now. Ha.). :]
mhen76 and hollytiel like this.

1st compliment? Consider this your second:
Your hair in your avatar is absolutely gorgeous! I am surprised this was the first time someone said something.

Aww thanks. I consider my avatar pic about week 1 of CG. It looks a lot better than that now IMO. :]

I agree, I'm amazed you're not getting regular compliments with the beautiful hair you have! At least you're amongst fellow curlies here who appreciate gorgeous curls when they see them!
