Hair She Goes...

I sometimes drive my husband S a little crazy because I have a tendency to jump from one random topic to another. Last week we headed out to Cottage Country...no electronics, no Blackberry reception...so I was left to my own devices. So, I'm warning you now as this post will give you a taste of what the poor man had (and still has) to tolerate day after day...

A little over a week ago in my 'Summer Linen' post I mentioned, that although I was growing my hair out, I had scheduled an appointment since my hair was in dier need of a cut. Well, I did go and as much as I said I was "growing it out"...I now look like this...


What can I say? Sitting in that salon chair with a hairdresser toying with my hair and a sharp set of scissors at the nape of my neck, I'm easily swayed. I haven't had my hair this short since I was 18(let's just say that was a while back). I like it because it feels super light and air dries in about 10 minutes. S says it's like he's got a "new wife"......OK then. Might be because since the cut I've also been wearing more masculine pieces and other pieces that feel less "frou frou". We'll see how long that lasts.


I had to take these pictures myself (felt strange and my arm definitely does not feel long enough...note to self: learn how to use the timer) as S is now on photog strike...well not really but he's so busy with work that I just don't want to pull him away just so he can take my picture.

Before we left town last week, I also had an ironing marathon. Fun huh? I didn't want to come back to a ton of housework. S has an insane amount of shirts...or at least he does after I neglect to iron them for 3 weeks. I know I could take them to the cleaners but I actually don't mind when I'm ironing just a few.

In this case I knew it'd be a long haul so I thought I'd give it a bit longer to heat up...why I rested it lying flat is beyond me, I guess when they trimmed my hair, they chopped off some good sense as well.

This is what my ironing board now looks like...

So sad! I will definitely have to replace it. I haven't burnt anything ironing since I was 16 (a good while ago) when I ruined one of my favourite white shirts.

To help pass the time I also popped in a Gilmore Girls DVD. Two years ago I did some Black Friday shopping after visiting my in-laws Stateside for Thanksgiving. Not much to buy where they live but I did manage to get the Gilmore Girls Complete Series on DVD - best $100 I ever spent!

Right now I'm especially loving the episode where Emily buys a small 'panic room' (which slightly resembles a big refrigerator) and gives Lorelai the code...



When my aunt said I could set my own code on her house alarm for whenever I come to visit, I told her I wanted to use the same code. She's not a Gilmore Girls fan so I'm not quite sure she got it. So, just in case, I won't share where she lives...not that I'm saying you'd ever break in...*sigh* how does S put up with me?

  6. Very pretty! I used to be in hairdressing and I was always game for anything - I even had a perm just for the sake of a coworker's exam! I had him wash it out as much as possible afterwards though...

    P.S. Just noticed you've received an award I created some time ago. It's so nice to see it appearing here and there... I am so glad girls actually liked it. :) Style Fairy suits you so well.

  16. Your haircut looks super stylish and sexy! I wish I had more guts to take chances with hair. And I laughed (with you, not at you of course) at the burn mark on your ironing board. Shame, it was such an awesome board cover!!
