My new driver's license arrived yesterday, and I'm a redhead! The colour is all wonky - the eggplant purple lipgloss that I was wearing came out looking like hooker red lipstick, my silver eyeshadow came out looking purple and my hair looks redder than Anne Of Green Gables'. The contours of my skin are very red as well - the computer's colours were obviously off, but I love what it did for my hair! Grin

Grin You guys are too funny.

So...practice was somewhat torturous for the guys last night. I had my earplugs in the enitre time, so I was in the proverbial bubble. Just focusing on myself and what I had to do.
    We're practicing Sunday and Monday before the show.

My father's having his band over tonight for a practice...so the blues band will have to wait. I have to go to bed early anyway. Morning shift tomorrow. Tongue

Having a good hair day today, it seems. Did the usual CWC, then decided to try using my Suave Kids leave-in conditioner instead of Pantene Detangling. Not only is it oil free, it also costs less and has a nice apple fragrance to it that seems to linger. My hair has been braided for almost 2 hours and still smells faintly of apples. Wink
    When I run out of Pantene Detangling spray, I will probably switch. But I'll still use the Pantene bottle, of course. Wink

Also refilled my conditioner bottle this morning with the usual combination of Pantene Moisture Renewal and Full & Thick conditioners. Haven't needed to mix up another shampoo blend yet, and I'm finding it terribly cool not to be spending so much $$$ on shower stuff lately. Cool

Anyway, products that I'm currently using are:

*shampoo blend - Pantene Full & Thick + Suave Professionals Volumizing + water
*conditioner blend - Pantene Full & Thick + Moisture Renewal
*Pantene Detangling leave-in spray conditioner
*EVOO

Speaking of EVOO, I put some on the ends of my hair this morning. Typically stringy, greasy results, but with a braid, it doesn't matter. I think my EVOO bottle may finally be half empty.

What else...? Weather. Let's go with that. We're having yet another Santa Ana here in SoCal. Temps are in the low 80's all this week with extremely dry air. Tongue Thankfully, I have a humidifier and plenty of body lotion.

My skin has been a holy terror of late, so I've spent the past 3 days trying to clear it up. God, if I had the $$$ for another 7 months of Accutane, I'd do it. *sigh*

Anyway, it's quittin' time.

Goog. This is Angel on 2 1/2 hours' sleep. Tongue

Last night was my first power walk of the year. I'm still not 100% well, so I took it easy. Broke in the new walking shoes and talking pedometer that I got for Christmas. Though my enthusiasm turned into dismay when the latter said that I'd only taken 4,487 steps, burned 159 calories and walked 1.6 miles in 39 minutes. WTF? That had to be wrong. So after the 'rents went to bed, I jumped in my car, set my odo and drove my walk route. Returned with a reading of 2.3 miles.

Then, I consulted my little sis who has always been *ahem* slightly more athletic than yours truly. She said that the exact same route takes her 30 minutes if she walks half and jogs the other half. I was satisfied. Smiley

Anyway, between that and a 20 oz. bottle of Mountain Dew Voltage, I retired to my chamber around 11:00, but laid awake in bed talking to absolutely no one for an hour. Shocked The next hour was divided between texting guy friend T and a tearful pity party for one. Tongue I woke up somewhere between 2:30 and 3 AM and couldn't get back to sleep before the alarm went off at 5. Then, it was up and off to work.
    The circles under my eyes are larger and darker than usual and I've not been able to think straight...but I'm trying. Undecided

Anyway, wow, apologies to the reader. I just wasted so much of your time rambling about things you couldn't care less about. Ha.

To add insult to injury, I haven't much in the way of hair news today. Just the same ol' CWC + Detangling spray + braid routine. I did notice last night that my hair is definitely healthier and less dry since the trim. Speaking of which, I don't believe I ever recorded my new measurement, did I? 25 1/4". I hope to have 2 more inches by the end of the year. I'll have Maggie beat by then. Buahahahahahaaa! Wink

Alrighty, off to make some soup. Ta!

I can never get those pedometer thingies to work right; they just don't count all the steps.

One of the worst things is to lay there in bed unable to sleep, especially if you have difficulties on yr mind.  No more caffiene for you!  I hope you can get caught up tonight.

Skyfire: *hugs* Thanks, love. Smiley Last night, I think I actually got a full 8 hours with the help of some generic nighttime pain reliever. And you may be right about pedometers...the ones I've used haven't seemed very accurate. Undecided

Yes, ma'am! *salutes* Grin

Hair: Today, I did the typical Friday WTC. Washed with the Pantene/Suave Pro shampoo blend, treated with Pantene Fortifying treatment, conditioned with Suave Soothing Lavender Lilac conditioner. Only leave-in was Pantene Detangling spray.
   Predictably, I forgot to bring a hairtie to work with me, so my hair has stayed down all day. I'll braid it in awhile before I go out for my power walk.

Other Stuff: The rock opera band is getting together Sunday and Monday nights to practice before the show on Thursday. I've heard that we'll be taking the stage before Moon Pie's other band, Echo Revolution. At least that means there will be a few cute guys there. Roll Eyes
   The blues band hasn't had a practice yet.

Went shopping after work this evening. I went out looking for bath towels and came back with a bag full of goods from Bath & Body Works. Grin I got refills for my Wallflower: cinnamon vanilla and cinnamon & clove buds. Shower gels: cucumber melon, mango mandarin and coconut lime verbena. Body splashes: dancing waters, rainkissed leaves, freshwater cucumber, country apple and pink grapefruit. Cheesy Sales rock.

It's bloody cold tonight! I'll definitely need my sweats for power walking. After I finish my frozen yogurt, I'll go change and get a move on. Ciao!

Hair: The usual CWC + Detangling spray, but I didn't braid today. I might do a heavy EVOO treatment tonight...sounds good.

Another spending binge at Bath & Body Works found me with 2 new shampoos: mango mandarin and coconut lime verbena. Both in moisturizing formulas. However, once I got them home, I read the ingredients and found that the main detergent in both of them is sodium lauryl sulfate. Shocked Silly me, I guess when I bought them I assumed that since they came from B&BW, they would have high quality ingredients. *smacks forehead* Yes, I know what the first 3 letters in "assume" are - no need to remind me. Tongue Perhaps if I combine them with my Pantene shampoo and dilute the mix enough, it won't be so bad? Undecided Guess we'll find out after awhile.

It still kind of cracks me up that I won't have to buy shampoo for a loooong time. That will definitely take some getting used to.

Other Stuff: Shampoo wasn't the only free booty I snagged from B&BW. Grin Also picked up shower gels in: dancing waters, rainkissed leaves, wild honeysuckle, black raspberry vanilla and midnight pomegranate. Creamy body wash in: dancing waters. Au de toilette fragrances in: freshwater cucumber and fresh pineapple. And more Wallflowers refills: blissful blackberry and exotic coconut. Cheesy Sales + giftcards = guilt-free shopping sprees!

Hair: Last night, I did indeed to a heavy EVOO treatment. Washed out this morning with a WCC and finally ran out of my shampoo blend. Of course, this meant mixing up another this afternoon Cheesy so I filled half a 13 oz. bottle with Pantene Full & Thick shampoo and the other half with the moisturizing coconut lime verbena shampoo from B&BW. Filled the neck of the bottle with just a dash of spring water, then shook it all up. Smells heavenly...but I hope it doesn't dry out my scalp. Undecided

Anyway, the usual Detangling spray was my only leave-in and the "Hop Sing" braid was the style.

Nails: This morning, the chipped, faded dark purple had to go and I decided to reshape the tips a little. Then heated up the remaining milk from my cereal bowl in the microwave & soaked my nails in it for 5 minutes. I read that this supposedly gives them calcium. After rinsing them off, I put a dot of baby oil gel on each nail, massaged it in and let it sit for 7 minutes (I was going for 10 but was summoned to move my car and fishing around in one's purse for one's keys does not bode well for greasy fingertips Tongue).
   Anyway, after rubbing in whatever moisture was left after that, I applied a coat of nail strengthener, waited about an hour before slathering on some hand cream, then applied another coat. Hands have been looking & feeling more luxe all day. Smiley

The white trauma lines on my nails are finally growing out without new ones to follow. This is where I must give mad props to Dark Wyccan for his awesome guide to gothic nail care. Cheesy It has done for my nails what Susan's Ultimate Guide has done for my hair...and then some!

Music: Drove dad to Guitar Center today so he could pick up a new super chorus pedal. Several long hair sightings there...particularly one of the cashiers, who had a thick, chocolate brown, mid-back length ponytail of loose curls. He was actually kinda cute too...but probably half my age. Roll Eyes

Tonight's practice was jammin'. We practiced only the 9 songs chosen for our 40 minute show on Thursday. One song was scrapped and another added. Our setlist is mostly up tempo. Highlight of the night was an impromptu funk version of Shadows Of The Street (typically a moody, blues ballad). Oh, the things we come up with when we're just messing around. Grin
   According to Grateful Ed, the venue we're playing is pretty exclusive to a crowd of rich and "beautiful" 30-somethings. I've never seen the place before, so it may be interesting. If nothing else, I can keep an eye out for rich, beautiful men my age, right? Roll Eyes

Other Stuff: Went to the mall earlier today & noticed that the semi-annual sale at B&BW was winding down. So what choice did I have...seriously? Grin I now have 8 more shower gels: freshwater cucumber, black raspberry vanilla, midnight pomegranate, 2 more coconut lime verbena and 3 more mango mandarin. And a cute black vinyl zipper pouch for only $2 that now holds all of my nail polishes. Wink

That's all for now! I'm off to clean up & get ready for bed. It's been a day.

True, but I would've placed him between 19-21, which, needless to say, is much too young for me. Roll Eyes

Mostly nowhere. Roll Eyes

Hair: CWC routine + Detangling Spray + EVOO on the ends + braid. Got to use my new shampoo blend this morning. Cheesy Awesome stuff, tropical limey scent...I think I may add more water though.

Other: No practice tonight. The blues band is trying to organize a practice for tomorrow night, though I'm thinking about dropping out of the project altogether. Just don't know if I'm up to embarrassing myself in a bad Elvis band with a cheesy name. Roll Eyes

You see my point then. Wink

Hair: Went through a rather unconventional clarifying routine this morning. Purity wash + ACV rinse as usual, then tried my usual shampoo blend for the 2nd wash. Huh It smelled nice, but didn't leave my hair with that really freakin' CLEAN feeling that 2 Purity washes typically do. I don't think it's for me. Tongue But it did free up some space in my shampoo bottle to add more water, which I did.

While my hair was still wet, I slicked the ends and part of the length with a little EVOO. Just enough for some decent slip. After it was dry, I combed it out, twisted it into a bun and secured with a hairstick. Yes, a real hairstick, not a pencil. My sis actually gave me a black wooden hairstick with a silver & black dangle on the end for Christmas. It works pretty well, but there's a jingling sound every time I move from the ornament on the end.

Last night, I went to Target for a few things and noticed that Pantene is launching a new collection: Nature Fusion. All the usual Pantene ingredients plus aloe, cassia and a few others that I can't remember at the moment. Being that I was using a giftcard, I figured that I might as well try out something new since it was free. So I tossed a bottle of the Moisture Balancing formula into my basket. In another month or so, when my current shampoo blend runs out, I'll see how the new stuff works.

Earlier this morning, I took inventory of my shampoo supply, did a little math and concluded that I have enough Pantene shampoos to last into early July! Shocked Cheesy I'm liking this whole "saving money" concept.

Other Stuff: Got a $2 rebate from Clearasil in the mail today. Woohoo. More $$$ coming soon from a Victoria's Secret refund. I should be ok until payday. *crosses fingers*

So, tonight's the first scheduled practice for the Building Blocks. Seriously...the Building Blocks. ... That's the new blues band's name. Catchy, no? ... If the bad fat Elvis impressions don't doom us, the name certainly will. Grin That said, I think I've decided to just suck it up and stay in. It's all a bunch of family friends (plus dad)...guys that I enjoy hanging and playing with, so I might as well humour them, right? That's the courteous thing to do.
    Ergo...practice. Tonight.

Peace.
