LD: Very belated thanks.

Hair: Wet. It rained today. I'm not sure my hair ever dried from when it was in the shower. Again, I went out without a hood on (I'm not a fan of umbrellas) and wound up looking like a drowned rat. Fortunately, I carry a few bobby pins in my purse and was able to make a decent bun to combat the homeless chick look.

Routine today was the usual CWC + Suave detangling spray + serum. Just wash & go. I haven't even run a comb through it.

Etc.: Spent the day mall hopping like a giddy, middle class 30-something with money to burn. Roll Eyes Picked up a few CD's for my sister's b-day, which is a little over 2 weeks away. Mother Nature bid me to hit the Godiva boutique, Roll Eyes and at JCP, I was unable to resist a super cute new top by Bisou Bisou. It has a bit of a gothic edge to it, so eventually, I'd like to replace its current buttons with intricate pewter ones. The only depressing part was having to buy a size larger than I normally wear. Undecided Well, that and having to face the 3-way mirror in the dressing room. Tongue

Anyroad, while at Target, I also noticed that Sally Hansen's Salon nail polish line had been revamped, so I couldn't resist getting a few new bottles (hehe my name is Angel and I am a nail polish addict). The colours I picked up were Purple Pulse and Midnight In NY. Fabulous.

Well, it's now almost 10:00, so I'd better start getting ready for bed.

Peace and love.

Stupid Bowl this year, so everyone's jumping on the blue & gold bandwagon.


I never did either.  Thankfully my family doesn't care either so I've not suffered.

Just checked them online.  Look fabulous.  I'd like the purple.  The MN in NY is similar to a cheap one that's part of a 15 pack my mom got me for x-mas.  The Blazing Blue is similar to a stable I used to own in several mainstream brands but from discontinued lines.  I'm out of them now though.  Don't think we have SH here but I'll find something similar once our sidewalks thaw up.  I'll be disappointed if Gosh doesn't have that purple or blue.

Drear: They are fabulous!

Trisha: Bless your heart. It was as easy as going back and returning the bottle I bought. It means more to have one from a friend. Kiss

Hair: Well, it's done. This morning, I did a WCC with no leave-ins and went about my business while it dried (despite the rain). Upon returning home, I ran a comb through my virgin hair, sectioned it and then coloured each section. Left the colour in for over 40 minutes, then rinsed and conditioned with Suave lavender lilac and Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship. Right away, I could tell that my hair was darker. I sprayed Kenra leave-in conditioner on the length and slicked a bit of serum on the ends, then sat in my room with the ceiling fan on full blast.

My family didn't even notice the difference until I mentioned it. It's definitely darker, but subtle. I'd call it Hershey's kiss brown. Milk chocolate. My mother said it looked nice. I'll need a few days to get used to it.
    It seems to accentuate the darker tones in my eyes and it definitely complements my brows better. I'd like to see how my makeup fares with it.

As for now, my hair is in the usual single braid, which was crucial for the rain and for going to the mountains where it's often windy. I'll take it down before bed.

Nails: Total bling. 1 coat silver sparkle, one coat white micro glitter. It's a bit much even for me...though it would be right at home in a Vegas nightclub. Or a Lady Gaga show. Roll Eyes

Etc.: Went to Viejas Outlet Center earlier tonight out of boredom; came home with a cute new pair of shoes. Now I won't have to worry about wearing my ratty Ariats to job interviews. Roll Eyes

Anyway, as soon as this cucumber face mask dries, I'll finish getting ready for bed and try to catch up on The Biggest Loser. Ciao!

Hair: The fake colour has faded quite a bit already. In a few days, it should be back to natural, which I'm looking forward to. It only took this once to reaffirm what I learned all through high school and college: darker hair is nice, but not all it's cracked up to be.
    Plus, I don't like what it's done to the texture at all. It's dry and tangles way more even though it's otherwise healthy. I hope I haven't ruined the natural texture permanently. 'Twould be my luck. Angry I'll do everything I can to revive its condition as the colour fades.

Today's routine was the usual CWC + Suave detangling spray + serum. Style was a flipped ponytail, which got quite messed up between the rain and the hood of my sweatshirt.

Etc.: Woke up early this morning to the sweet sounds of my parents arguing...about my weight of all things. Embarrassed Exercised for an hour once I finally dragged myself out of bed. God, I wish I lived alone.

Went to the coast for some writing therapy and to indulge my fat a** with a few treats from Starbucks Lips Sealed and ended up taking a few shots of the water with my camera phone. One of the cool things about the combination of ocean and rain is that it creates huge waves, which draws both psycho surfers and shutterbugs from their dark, reclusive dwellings. Enjoy the work of my crap composition skills. Tongue

I love the photos! Nice and dreary, feels like home.  Grin

I'm reasonably sure that once the color fades, your hair will feel  like normal again. After all, since it's temporary color, it didn't go *into* your hair. So it's just a coating, right? Color fades, coating gone, weird texture poof!

At least, that's how I'm rationalizing it.  Cool

Curlgirl & KNS: Thanx, guys; and I hope you're both right. Wink

Hair: Gosh, it's after 12:30 and I haven't showered. Tongue But then, I really haven't been up that long. Once I do finally get my act together, I'm going to clarify and hope that helps with the dye. It's almost faded out anyway.
    The colouring experience was kinda fun but I wouldn't be able to make a long term commitment. When I start going gray, it might be a different story, but I have a good 15 years before I'll have to worry about it.

Etc.: My 1928 jewelry order arrived 2 days ago and I really love most of it. One pair of linear drop earrings will have to go back, though, as they're too big. Undecided

Then yesterday, I got Trisha's little surprise in the mail. A bottle of Sally Hansen's Salon nail polish in Midnight In NY as well as a V-day card. Thank you, Trish! Lovely penmanship, by the way. Wink I'm due for a manicure in a few days and I don't think I'll be able to resist trying out this new shade.

Weather-wise, we're overcast today. The rain has been typically gorgeous and dramatic, but I think the majority of it has passed us by now. Sad They say this is supposed to be a rainy year for us. We need one!

That's pretty much it for now. I'm off to exercise a little and then clarify my greasy self. Cheers!

I like pics of rocks and waves, especially when it's not "perfectly" sunny.

Thanks honey; I pride myself on having good penmanship.  Not everyone cares about that anymore and I think that's unfortunate.   Sad 

I'm anxious to hear your opinion about the Midnight in NY and look forward to your review.  --And you're most welcome!

Trisha: Yup, I'm one of the sort who doesn't care much about my own penmanship. It's a wonder if I can get even part of what's in my head down on paper before it flitters away. Nevermind how it looks. Your thoughts are only yours for a split second and it can be tricky to seize them as they strike. It's all my fingers can do to keep up. This is also why I type 80 WPM. Roll Eyes
    But I console myself with the notion that geniuses have bad penmanship. Grin

As for Midnight In NY, it's still going strong after day 3, though I do need to touch up a few places. It's a high quality black and the sparkle is subtle enough that it's only visible under certain lighting conditions.

Hair: Air drying at the moment. Did a WCC + the usual leave-ins. Recently, I've become rather fascinated with the idea of tea staining. I've combined my Suave and Kenra leave-in detangling sprays and infused them with tea, and I try to do tea rinses every morning at the end of my shower. Feeling more British all the time. Roll Eyes

Style du jour will just be a single braid, I think. Nothing special. Although after seeing the long braids on the creatures in Avatar last night, I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to copy the movie. Tongue

Hair: CWC with an ACV rinse, then a coffee rinse at the very end. All of the dye seems to have washed out, but the texture is still extremely tangle-prone. Angry Even my leave-ins don't help as much as they used to. I wish I had time to deep condition once a week.

Anyroad, today I braided, yesterday I didn't. A few days ago, I tried my signature twisted updo - first one since the trim. Found it's much easier to gather my hair into a high ponytail while remaining upright than flipping my hair upside down and putting a ponytail in at the top of my head. Much less of a hassle too.

Picked up a drawer organizer to help organize the tools and accessories in my hair drawer. Heh heh...you know you're obsessed when...

Etc.: Just realized it's Friday already. The days all seem to run together without a steady work schedule and it's easy to lose track.

My friend T was messing with the super bright flash feature on my camera phone while we were at a coffeehouse a few nights ago and snapped this winning shot of yours truly. He said I looked like The Joker.

...
Why so serious?


Ordered remasters of the first 2 Echo & The Bunnymen albums today. Believe it or not, I still don't have any of the Beatles remasters either. Shocked Better get crackin'.

It had to happen, I guess. Oy.

Must've decided to take a shower too late in the day because halfway through it, my sister's bf started rattling the bathroom door off of its hinges and yelling at me to get out because he needed a shower too. Angry After about the 3rd (4th?) time, I yelled back at him to bugger off. Then, the games began.
    Immediately, the water temperature began fluctuating between warmish and ice cold. Then, it turned off completely. *sigh* We're back to this crap again, are we? It's an old trick. My parents used to do this to me constantly the last time I lived with them. It didn't make me go faster then, and it won't now. Apparently, my sister's guy can't resist control games either.
    When they oh-so-generously allowed the water to come back on, I hastily finished and got out of there...but not without first coating the bottom of the bathtub with 2 mini bottles of their fancy bamboo crème conditioner, hoping that when he did get his precious 5 minute shower, he'd slip and fall right on his fat scuffer butt. ...
    "There is ever a flaw, however, in the best laid of human plans..." For all of his fussing, he never went in to have a shower so I'll have to clean in there before tomorrow. Angry
    Needless to say, my opinion of the guy (I certainly won't say man) has dropped a few notches.

Ahem. Decided to toss the tea-infused Kenra/Suave Kids leave-in spray and go back to my beloved Pantene Detangling. Ahhh...
    Also decided to nix the coffee and tea rinses until my hair's natural silky texture returns. It's still not 100%, but it's coming back. Clarifying tomorrow might help...if I'm bloody able to do so without interruption. Angry

Hair has stayed down all day. I might do a S&D before the night is through.

Anyroad, that's what's going on in Angel's realm for the moment. Another painful reminder of how badly I need to move out again.

Peace.
