About Me

Hey y’all!

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow  weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

– Isaiah 40:31


My name is Sarahruth, and God has been good to me.  After three years of teaching high school, I decided that it was finally time for me to do the thing I encouraged my students to do everyday – decide what to be, and go be it.  So, at 25, I packed up everything I had and moved from Wilmington to Raleigh, North Carolina to enroll in cosmetology school.

On this site you will find hair, makeup tips and a little about my life as one who calls herself, “fashionably broke.”

I don’t believe you have to spend a pretty penny to look like a million bucks.

I also believe you don’t have to spend hours on hair, makeup, or your closet to feel beautiful.  It is my sincere hope that you find some of these post helpful, be it shaving a few minutes off your morning routine or saving a few dollars in your checking account.

I graduated From East Carolina University.  I love bacon and big hair.  I have an amazing family, wonderful friends, a really great church, and I am the proud parent of a beautiful pet duck….named Duck.

Enjoy your visit!

  1. Wow reading your blog brings back Xanga memories…saw you were off facebook and Brandi said your phone got stolen. Text me when you get a new one please. I miss 😦

  2. Just shared your “A Snowed-In Southerner’s Response to Northern Critics” on fb and had to see who wrote it. Thank you. If it had been a pie, my Grandmama would have said that you put your foot in it. Know you know that means it was gooooood.

  3. I loved your “A Snowed-In-Southerner’s Response to Northern Critics”
    You said everything I have wanted to say for years but didn’t know how to say and all with the grace of a true southerner. Thank you.
