Hair Update – Rant Included

I’m sure if you dye or bleach your hair regularly, say, bi – monthly of the every other month variety, you would have heard at least once the helpful friend utter THIS –

‘You should stop dyeing your hair, it’ll all fall out!’

Now, I appreciate that may have happened to you, or a friend.  You may have had the unfortunate experience of dyeing your hair green with a box bleach.  The truth is, the worst I have ever had is when I bleached my hair and took it off too soon.  Aside from the time where I went swimming in a warm brine pool and it went really stretchy.  I have been dyeing my hair by my own hand for over ten years now, only once in a hairdressers.  I also worked in a hairdressers.  MY HAIR IS FINE.

Hair was a topic of conversation on Twitter recently.  A few of us realised we were kindred spirits, in that our hair either did not style, or could be abused to high hell and would not fall out.  Talk of 200 degree straighteners.  Hair that does not bleach.  Styles that fall out after an hour.

We are not like you.

Here is my hair update.

Sale Shopping

So I am now officially unemployed. I received my last lot of wages yesterday, including holiday pay owed to me (ten hours), and decided as a consolation prize, I would go shopping.

Initially, I was shopping for Lucy’s birthday present, a pair of lilac snakeskin ankle – breaking heels from Blue Banana, but they only had size 5 or size 8, so no luck. I tried on a corset top too, with a lovely blue water koi print on it, but there would be too many alterations needed to justify it.

After I went to the Jobcentre, for my obligatory sign – here – even – though – your – claim – isn’t – sorted – yet signing, I went back into town. I wasn’t sure where I was going, but I ended up in Deichmann.

Where I bought these –

See the glitter?

These were £3.74. They had had a massive 75% off sale, and though there wasn’t much left, these were spiffing!

After that, I remembered I wanted to go to Primark for some leggings, as it was getting warmer and I like wearing shorts and leggings (though some friends don’t approve). That’s where I found these –

As you can see, these were also in a sale. For £3. Yes, they’re on a Graceland box. Only to add a bit of height to the photo so you see less of my manky, hand – me – down sofa.  Whilst in Primark, I also bought a top (no photo yet), and these trousers –

Bright blue skinnys WOO

I have quite a skinny jeans collection now, for someone who wasn’t sure on them in the first place.

So, that’s all the shopping i’m going to do for a while…
