AARRGG!!!!  I WANT SPINACH!!!!!  Angry

About 2 days before contaminated spinach outbreak, I asked my husband to go to the store and get me some spinach because I was running low.  I don't know why he didn't get it for me, but then the recall came. I was fine thinking okay in a few days I can have a salad but, still no spinach!!!  I know, I'm like a friggin' rabbit but I love spinach salads!!!  I was in the store with my mom when I was a teen and she told me I could only get one snack.  We were already at the checkout counter and I was seriously having a hard time trying to decide between a bag of lettuce and a lemon cream pie.  The clerk thought I was completely crazy but, I love my salads and now I'm having serious withdrawal Cry

Okay, my hair is fine although I did do a little mini trim because I straightened with a hot iron and thought that maybe the trim would stop any damage before it starts. Smiley   Smiley

I feel your pain regarding the spinach.  I usually eat a spinach salad 4 or 5 times a week.  I too miss my spinach.  Cry  Hopefully it won't be much longer before we can have our favorite salads back!

The recall is over, folks. Now it's just down to how trusting you are.

I didn't know it was over, I still can't find any locally.  I'm pretty trusting at this point.   After this fiasco I feel they'll do their best to make sure it doesn't happen again, well at least not anytime soon. Undecided

I ordered my first pair of LL hair sticks yesterday!!!  I'm so excited!!! They're a special order so, it'll take a while for me to get them but I've been experimenting away with hair styles so, when they arrive I'll be ready.  Smiley

I just finished a modification to a new belt I purchased.  It was a minor modification so it didn't take long, even though I did it by hand.


BEFORE
...

I really liked this belt but thought there was something missing so I added some lace.  It's hard to tell in the pic but just adding a little lace made a huge difference.  I'm much happier with it now.


AFTER
... ...

This coat is my next project: I'll replace the old collar with a new ruffled satin collar (the one in the pic's actually much more puffy in real life and it's kinda scratchy).  The sleeves are shorter in person too, so I'll have to extend them by adding more layers of ruffled satin.  And I also purchased some pretty onyx buttons from eBay to replace the old ones with.  I think it'll turn out nicely when finished. Oh, and this will all match my new black and sterling hair sticks that I'm so excited about!!

Nice addition to the belt.  Your changes to the coat are ambitious.  Good luck!

Nice work on the belt, La_Diosa.

I recognize the coat as being from Newport News. Love them!! They have such wonderful gothic items in the fall/winter!!  Grin

Good luck on the project & be sure to post pix when you finish!

Thanks Bikerbraid I know it is quite ambitious, I'd rather take it to my seamstress, it's just that I still have a few items at her shop that have been there for a while because she's really backed up, so I'm not sure when she'll be able to get around to it.

Sakina, I love the sleeves too.  Hopefully when done, the collar will be just as nice.

Yep, you're right Angel Spun, I usually don't shop there, but I'm so in love with their new fall/winter catalog.  A lot of the clothes this season are so very Victorian (and Goth) inspired, I really love that look. Smiley

I was getting really bad dry tangles and pesky tiny little knots so, I finally decided to do a wash using my Pantene Ice Shine.  I like it.  I did my typical low heat, blow dry til damp, detangle thing and the comb just glided through my hair. I didn't have 1 knot or tangle.

I applied safflower oil prior to washing and it made my hair softer. I'm thinking of alternating my coconut oil with safflower oil from time to time to see what results I get.  The only thing is that the safflower oil doesn't smell as yummy as the coconut, I'll have to add some essential oil to change that.  

I ordered some more of my favorite perfumed hair spritz from eBay.  It's moisturizing and is mainly oil, water and fragrance, but they have so many scent selections.  I tried vanilla this time, pretty much thinking it would smell like extract but I was surprised that it had more of a baked goods smell to it like cake or cookies.  It smells so good with my coconut oil, it's definitley my new favorite.  I'm going to try chocolate next, I think that might smell good with coconut too.

Oh, and tonight I discovered a cool way to speed my hair drying along...rollerblading.  I decided to accompany my husband as he went on his nightly jog, the cool breeze felt so good going through my hair.  I felt like Leonardo DeCaprio in Titanic, I couldn't help but raise my arms in his "King of the world" pose, it was so nice.  Smiley

I did another measure and am now thinking that I cut off more on my last trim than I previously thought.  I got 24 1/4 inches, dry Undecided    Last time it was at 24 3/4 so I don't know.  My ticker even changed today to 9 months even til 30 inches .  I hope I at least come close to meeting that goal.
