A slightly cranky girls quest for pretty
I think at the moment I am suffering from a combination of "poor me syndrome" (aka PMS) and "the-week-before-payday-blues". I feel rather broke, hormonal, lazy and hungry (I'm sure you know this feeling)....
I need to dye my hair. badly. I dont think I can live with the emerging skunk stripe (aka my roots) until payday. Which means I may have to go and buy a box dye tonight. The 2 things I most loathe about box dyes are: its a messy mission and the picture on the box is hardly ever the colour you get on your hair. (If a person buys coffee brown the colour often comes out almost black).
I heart hairdressers. I always try to only let hairdressers dye my hair....but occasionally in my life I have had to let the fate of my hair rest on a simple store bought box of dye.
Yesterday I struggled to find something to wear. After pulling out nearly everything in my closet I realised something sad - I really dont like most of my clothes anymore. Alot of my stuff i feel just doesnt say "me". I think I am ready to introduce some new styles into my closet and get rid of alot of older stuff. Since winter is approaching I am thinking that winter shall be my season to clean out closet and get a new look.
Lately I have been getting alot of fashion inspiration from the show Gossip Girl. I absolutely love the way Blair Waldorf' (aka Leighton Meester) dresses. Her style is very preppy, classic and chic.
Who or what is your style inspiration at the moment?
Do you dye your hair at home or at a salon?
