Now that my home's had a makeover, I wanted to get a new look for myself. Off I went to the hairdresser's, and told them I wanted it it short and snazzy. I think they certainly delivered.


Afterwards, I treated myself to a nice green curry with rice and king prawns. Yummy! But a bit rich and as my stomach is no longer used to such things, it is now making the most embarrassing noises. I also bought myself a griddle pan, which should help with the diet.

Which is going exceptionally well - I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I have dropped a dress size; and all by cutting out rice, pasta, potatoes, cappucinos and chocolate. Amazingly simple really, if a bit austere at times.

Oh, that is really lovely! Good look on you. :)

Thanks! Now all I need to do is learn to smile for the camera!

Lovin' the hair! It looks amazing!

Thank you -- as usual, it'll take a week or two to really start looking good, but I'm very pleased with how it has turned out today.

Short and snazzy is right! Cute! :)

Actually, it's even snazzier than you think: it's got tiger stripes in a contrasting dark red down or rather, across the right hand side. You can see a little bit of the colour difference in the second pic (I took the first one before we were done).

That is very snazzy - it suits you. Glad the diet has continued to work even with a few weeks of your Mum's cooking.

Mum was actually very good at helping me stick to the diet as much as possible while I was at hers - she even went so far as to carefully count out no more than 15 cashew nuts for me to have as a Saturday treat ;-)!

Very nice!
Sep. 8th, 2007 07:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I feel like this is more me.

Cute hair! I can see what you mean about the richness. I have a similar problem at times. Good on you for doing so well, though.

Every time I pass a mirror, I have to do a double take; the colour's still a bit of a shock to me, but only in the nicest possible way ;-)!

The stomach has settled in the meantime; it should be fine now.

Short & snazzy with tiger stripes? I know we can't really see the tiger stripes in the pics but they sound fabulous. I like it ~ and I'd love to see what it looks like in 2 weeks when it "settles"!

The stripes look like this:

There's only on the one side, so that makes them a bit unusual, but I think it works well with the whole do.
Sep. 8th, 2007 10:13 pm (UTC)
Ooooo! I love it!

We're getting to be hair twins.
Sep. 9th, 2007 07:26 am (UTC)
So we are!
Sep. 9th, 2007 09:08 am (UTC)
ooooh I like it! The stripes are extremely snazzy indeed! ... yes .. next time heed this man! ;) heehee

I'll ask him for some tips next time ;-)
Sep. 9th, 2007 07:23 pm (UTC)
I like the plummy lowlights.
Sep. 9th, 2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I think they're an especially nice touch, too. I'm glad I gave girl that helped me free rein.
