Random Bits of Happy
* Planning a haircut. I have medium length hair and once colored and cut I usually go about 3 months without needing a haircut or touch up. I love planning. I made my appointment for Saturday and I adore playing with the ideas of wild colors, over the top styles and cuts. In the end I know it will be a trim, with maybe some wild layers! I have fun anyway thinking about the styles.
Also in the same vein…I found the cutest pink clip in extensions from Hot Topic and wore them all day yesterday. I had two adorable pink streaks peaking out of my dirty blond hair. Friends and Co-Workers thought it was real at first and they all seemed to find it fitting and cute. I think it may just stay as extensions, but it’s one of the things I toy with in my mind all the time….so it was fun to live it. I will be wearing them to a “F%@K Valentine’s Day” party on Saturday. I will post some picture next week!
* The book club I meet with was last night. Wine, food, discussion, laughter, full of all of the above we all leave happy and recharged. A good number of the ladies expressed that this is the one thing they do for themselves each month. It was time for a new book to be chosen and the person choosing actually picked a book because she knows I love Vampire novels. How very sweet is that? So I am really excited to be reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova this month. It sounds really interesting. I am looking online to see if I can grab it from the library and if not will call my local book consignment to see if he has it, I could download it to kindle for iphone but it’s a really long book and I think I want the real deal. One way or another I will have it in my hot little hands tonight. 🙂
* Last Thursday night I had a phone catastrophy. My phone crashed and wouldn’t recover. I found out it was under warranty but expressed to my husband that for many reasons (the biggest being I wanted an e-reader and had found out iphone….wait for it…..has an app for it) I wanted to upgrade. We realised we could do so for pretty cheap since my contract was up and so I upgraded and then we got the replacement as well and hubby got a phone upgrade as well….for zero bucks! He’s happy, I’m happy, I have an e-reader app and a book on my phone. It’s blissful. My love affair with Apple continues. They can be pricey but SOOOOO very worth it.
* The silver vintage evening bag I found while antiquing ($6 and it’s adorable!) * Working on my #RadicalSelfLove bible – following along on the Gala journey (expect an update from me soon, I’m going to scan some pages) * Valentine’s day colors are my favorite! Pink, red and white oh my! * Conversation Hearts “Bite Me” * Heligoland – Massive Attack is so lovely! * Looking forward to Asian fusion for V-Day dinner
