Hair days

14 Apr

So I recently mentioned a DIY dry shampoo I am using. This triggered a lot of questions, both online and irl.

This being the case, I took some pix while doing my hair. Note: I have a quite oily scalp. If I do not use some kind of dry shampoo, I Will be washing my hair.

So, here we are. I will include links in case you’d like to try it yourself.

We start with day one hair. Fresh washed, Aquage Uplifting foam in roots, a touch of Aquage gel in the ends, blown dry, then curled. (1″ iron) Here is the front and back.



This is the end of my day, just before workout.

Then I pulled it up, and went for a run, top show fully what this stuff can do.

After run, I blew my hair a bit too dry it out, then put in my “shampoo”, pulled it up and went to bed. Yes, I put it in kinda thick.




When I wake, fluff, curl if needed and go about your day. Remember how I said greasy, yeah, I can generally only do an “up” thing on day two.

Not bad though.

OK, I promised links — My bun tutorial – Thanks Kate!
Here is the dry shampoo – Hope you enjoy!


Weekend fun!

17 Nov

Hello dears!

This weekend I spent a good amount of time just having fun!

Mommy, hubby and I went to a painting thing on Saturday (after I went to the gym! Go me!). It was one of the stand alone painting lessons where you leave with a canvas.

We stayed for lunch after as it was held in an Irish Pub. Yum. Bangers and Mash….

Then I went to get my hair done – time for a bit a a refresh and a couple inches off. Once home, we ate a little something, I flipped the blocking cowl then headed over to a friends for games. It was nice, just hanging around.

Sunday, I got up and started a bit of cleaning and watching DVR stuff hubby is not interested in. (BBC America has been nice enough to play Sherlock from the beginning – sporadically, but still) After some cleaning we headed to watch some football – which had been rescheduled at the last moment and so my game was not playing. So lunch out and Go Bucs! Then home, watched my game (Fly Eagles, FLy!), then hubby’s game, and off to bed.

Hope you all had a great weekend with at least some fun!

March comes in like a lion…

So blog readers – how’s life on your end of the world.

I am busy and my hands are all torn up from cleaning.  C’est la vie!


I am working on some knitting – nothing really to show yet, it’s still kind of a blob of yarniness.  I will take pics once there it something to see.

I am also planning to do some yard work soon – winter is about over here and my compost heap is growing something…  I need to weed it and flip it over so I can start it back up.  I would also like to set up my garden – since it is there and ready to go – I need to schedule time out there like I schedule the gym and going to work.    –  Here’s hoping it works!

Lots to do, little time to do it

24 Jun

I need to pack some more boxes for the trip to the new place this weekend. I also need to mow my lawn, clean my house, change the kitten’s litter box, and get ready for a night with friends. Today. These all need to be done today. And I am here, with a previous engagment until sometime this afternoon.

It will all be OK, just breathe.

Relax and let be.
