Have A Great Weekend!

I’m enjoying having the apartment for myself while Andy’s in Atlanta on a bachelor party. I can finally do my nails without him complaining about me taking over the living room table! Haha. There is some truth in that, though… Right now I’m listening to music and enjoying a Mocha – I’m actually not sure what my plans are for the night. But I’m in a good mood!
Hmm, I think I need to get my hair done again. It’s gotten a bit too orange for my linking. Maybe it’s my shampoo? And the hairdresser did suggest getting a few different highlights in it for spring.


My Hair Through The Years

So, here we have perm, straight hair, bangs, no bangs, highlights, almost black, almost orange (in the second one, though it’s hard to tell in that light – don’t dye your hair blond at home!), dark brown, light brown, and blond. Looking back, the perm and the highlights were definitely not my finest moments.

Oh, and none of these are my natural hair color! Haha. I would have to go too far back to find it in a picture. I think the one in the middle is closest, just a bit darker. Think a boring, mousy brown.
If you decide to do something similar on your blog, please let me know! I always think it’s fun to see how different people look with different hair styles. And don’t forget to share which one you wish you hadn’t done, hehe. We all have at least one of those, right?

I’m Blond!

Oh my god, this is crazy. I just can’t get used to the idea. After four hours at the salon – yep, it took that long – I’ve gone from dark brown to completely blond. Turns out my hair just didn’t want to let go off it’s color, so it took twice as long as expected. It took three bleaches, two dyes, and seven shampoos before it decided to cooperate. And despite all of that my hair doesn’t feel dry at all! I am very happy with the result. And the price – it was only $65!
What do you think? I was terrified during the whole process, thinking it was going to be too orange or too platinum, but I think he got it just right. I will definitely be going back there.

Smokey Eye Shadow

I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with new eye shadows lately, but I still haven’t quite gotten the hang of smokey eyes. So I gave it another shot today and I think it turned out pretty good. I used Too Faced’s smokey eye shadow collection. It’s one of my favorites, but I normally doesn’t go as dark as this.
And on a side note: this might be one of the last pictures you’ll see of me as a brunette for a while. I’ve got an appoinment on Thursday to get it dyed. Wish me luck, because it’s going to be a big change!
