Goodbye sweet summer days!

It still feels like summer here. The days are not as long but they are still very warm! I am enjoying it of course, but a part of me in longing for the coolness of fall. The briskness of the morning air and the joys of wearing jeans and a sweater and a nice hot drink.

I should be taking advantage and washing the huge pile of wool that has been sitting ALL summer (I havent washed a single lock! GASP!) but all I want to do is cuddle my boy and finish reading pride and prejudice! Can you blame me?

Here are a few things I am looking forward to this season:

Sweet Bohemian Hair

I didnt take a picture of my hairstyle today – I was working (waitress) so my hair had to be pulled back. Here is a video link to a similar style that I wore at work! I love this girls videos!

Chalk dye day 2 & My go-to hairstyle

I am LOVING the colour in my hair! I am seriously thinking about going and buying some semi-perm FUN colour dye and adding a few strands wherever I please! The chalk is still there – but I am sure it will be gone as soon as I wash it. My friend gave me some advise – hairspray should help it stay in longer – makes sence right??

So everyone has a “Go-To” hairstyle – well mine is the top knot/messy bun! I usually do it a bit bigger and messier but here it is:

Can you see the awesome pink strands? LOVE IT!

I would like you to note – that I did my hair this morning at 8am. These pics were taken at 6pm when I FINALLY got home! This is also after taking my kids to feildhockey, attending a 7 year olds birthday party (outside), planning and attending a double baby shower and then driving home! It looks EXACTLY the same as this morning! AWESOME RIGHT?!

Chalk Dye – A Week in the life of my hair!

I did something today I have been wanting to try for a while! Chalk Dye! You use SOFT PASTELS/CHALK and pretty much just colour in your hair where you want to! (There is a bit more to it than that but – not much!) I got the info from here – http://thebeautydepartment.com/2012/01/chalk-it-up/ Which is FULL of awesome tutorials and tips on hair, fashion, makeup and nails!

Heres how it looked:

It says that if you are blonde you shouldn’t wet your hair because it will make it last longer than the day or two – BUT I wanted it to so I wet my hair. I found it lightened up soooo much over a few hours – kinda disappointing – causeing me to re-chalk a few times before I left.

I tried doing all sorts of really cool hairstyles today – and was sooo unhappy with ALL of them – so as of right now I am prob going to end up with my fav fishtail braid!

Here is a link to a Fishtail Braid tutorial :

A week of my hair!

I have decided to try a new hairstyle EVERYDAY this week and share it with you all 🙂
So starting with today’s hairstyle!
I washed my hair this morning and was waiting for it to dry (it takes a long time) before I tried a hairstyle BUT by the time it dried we were off to do some shopping!! So I left it down.
But here is a great reference point for all the other posts – sort of a before shot.

As you can see it is pretty long! And pretty thick! Which can be a big hassle most of the time BUT can be great for all the wonderful hair tutorials I see online!! I am also rocking the “ombré” hair trend – totally be accident! I am growing it out!
So I will post tomorrow my hair of the day! I am thinking braided crown… We will see how it goes!

Sock bun hair = Success

I used the sock bun technique today to get some curl for my hair -curling irons take forever and do not last past the door! Anyways you should do it through the night BUT I just watched the video this morning …. Sooo oh well!
Here are a few pics – I used my iPod so they are lame shots BUT you will see the effect! (also I am NOT photogenic so you prob won’t see many pics of me!!)

I am off for a kidless dinner with my love!
