New hair cut with a healthy dose of 90s hair nostalgia

I got my hair chopped off today into a chic, inverted bob.  In about a week it will go from chic to funky when I redye my hair purple :)
Thank you to Barb at Hairacy's!  I love the cut and my hair is so much better looking now that all the dead and split ends are gone!

Long live the bathroom selfie!

Long live the wrinkle remover feature on PicMonkey!

While I'm growing my bangs out I need a way to keep them off my face and out of my eyes, especially at work.  
The 90s called and no, they can't have their jeweled hair clip back!

This was my hair earlier this summer...July maybe...

and this is the purple colour I will probably go back to.

Now that I have 'normal' coloured hair I miss the purple, and surprisingly, hubby does too!

I'm Back!

and better than ever...???

I decided to revive my blog and let me tell you, it was a crazy spider web of domain hosts and email addresses, and user names and redirects...I felt like Alice down the rabbit whole!

I called my hubby over (who is a techie whiz) and much to his chagrin, it took us an hour and 3 email accounts to figure out what I had registered with who!  In a process I managed to accidentally create a whole other blog associated to the email address I mistakenly thought this one was associated with - I'm not even gonna tell him that!

Anyhoo, on a whole other topic - we have an election in Canada for a new Prime Minister on October 19th.  To any and all eligible Canadian reader, I encourage you to research a bit on all our potential new leaders and vote!  I won't even be mad if you vote for Harper as long as you just vote {I will be disappointed though ;p }

There's a nifty site that lets you create a profile pic encouraging others to vote.  I made mine tonight:

My First Wedding Crash

Recently I was chatting with a gentleman I know who was excitedly telling me about his daughter's wedding plans.  The more he revealed the more intrigued I was, this was not sounding like your standard church wedding!  So I told him I might have to crash it and he said that I should!  He told me it's a church wedding and everyone's invited to the I convinced hubby we should go as we technically had a sort of invite and we would only be partial crashers.  Hubby is a good sport!

My friend P was also attending (legitimately) so we arranged to meet in the balcony of the church and experience a bird's eye view.

First though, here's what I wore! *insert eye roll here*
Dress: George *coughWalmartcough*, Hair Piece: moi, Clutch: Transit, Shoes: Born

And here's P making her grand entrance
P's dress is a lovely colour-blocked number that she scored on a major sale!
We are all about good deals :)

The wedding was a 1920s theme to P brought out the pearls!  One can never go wrong with pearls.

Okay, now on the actual wedding.

The Anglican church were the service was built in 1789 by the Loyalists and is beyond beautiful.  
I love how the photographer looks like total paparazzi leaning from the balcony! 

Here's another shot of the beautiful arches

See the bride?  She's wearing a gold dress and black t-strap heels!  How fabulous!

I had to share this photo. Not only is the bride the coolest person ever for her fab '20s style (notice gold mesh finger-less gloves!) , look how chic this wedding guest is!  I love her outfit.

This is the bride's mom, and her 2 helpers...they are ringing the church bells right after the ceremony!

It really was a lovely service.  An attendant carried the cross down the isle first, then the Priest made his entrance and took his place. Next the Bride and Groom walked down together!  I thought that was a nice idea - and they looked so excited.  Then the wedding party followed.
After the vows were spoken the Priest, who was actually the Bride's father, said this was his favourite part of the liturgy "you may now greet each other" and of course they kissed and everyone cheered.  

All in all, I'm glad I crashed the wedding and I'm glad hubby obliged and crashed with me.  Also, kudos to P for sitting with the crashers ;)

I might just have to do that again some time!

All the Single Ladies, All the Little Ladies

My husband has been known to sing "All The Single Ladies" to our little Yorkies.  Sometimes he keeps the phrases as is, and sometimes he changes it to "All the little ladies".  It's hilarious.  It's also the only line of the song either of us know.

Anyway, I thought it was high time for some gratuitous dog photos.  Here goes.
This was taken today at hubby's office.  I'm working on a project and for reasons I will someday explain, they needed party hats.

Due to Carlie's constant head tilting, see above, I couldn't get the hastily made party hat to stay on

Tiffy obliged very nicely though

This was taken last night.  Hubby ran in a store to grab some groceries and I stayed in the car with the ladies to maintain temperature control.  Isn't she just the cutest little thing?!

Here's the two of them, happy as can be 

And Carlie, enjoying the sunshine.  Adorable!

All the single ladies, oh my little ladies.

I'll leave you with a SNL 'Single Ladies' sketch. Now the stinkin' song is in my head ;)
The quality is awful, but watch it for a minute and get a little laugh.

Some Extra Bounce

My hair has been pin straight my whole life and while I pretty much embrace that, I do get bored.  This would be a bored phase.  Also, as I mentioned before, it's kind of a lazy phase.  Because my hair is so straight and my scalp is so oily, I have to wash it everyday.  And, that means I have to blow it dry and style it everyday so it doesn't just hang lifelessly around my face.
I want something lower maintenance.  Also, I've been curling my hair more often and it's just not practical.
So, I've decided to go back to the perm, that faithful curl that does not require 40 minutes with a curling iron and doesn't fall and droop with all the maritime fog.  Oh perm, we are reunited at last!

Cathy at Hairacy's uptown did it for me.  She did my last perm too.  I trust her, she's a lady who knows her stuff!
Here's a pic of me in her chair with my newly curly hair.  It's still wet and she's trimming some of my layers to accentuate the curls.

She dried it a little bit with a diffuser and sent me on my merry way
Here's my hair about an hour later:
I really like how natural the curls look.

Details:  It was an acid perm, not ammonia, so it would be gentler on my hair.  Also, she used 3 different sizes of perm rods to give that 'natural but better look' as she called it.

Do you get bored with your hair? Do you change it seasonally?
