The madness has started! Christmas shopping … Christmas decorations … Christmas music blaring from every store. In the midst of it all, I had a fit of madness myself and decided it was time to change my look. It will probably come as a tremendous shock to you all … but I’m not actually a natural blonde (Uh huh! I had you fooled, didn’t I?). So off I went … to head back to my roots!
And yes, apparently, this is the colour of my roots … and despite the shock when I looked in the mirror, photographs from a decade ago are testament to the fact that once upon a time, I was actually this dark. So, what do you think? Feel free to be honest – as we all know, I’m very thick skinned (ha! Geddit?!) The fringe is being grown out, so it’s currently a work in progress. Excuse the grainy picture … it was the best I could do with my iphone today.
But here is the interesting fact and one I may have mentioned before – when I have my hair coloured, all scalp psoriasis disappears for a few days. In fact for the past five days, I haven’t had an issue with psoriasis on my scalp; not a single flake in evidence. Clearly I have produced a genius, because when I mentioned this, The Child commented ‘it’s a pity you can’t get clear colour … then you could put it in your hair every week and you’d never have a problem again’. Well Eureka! Any budding entrepreneurs out there with a flair for cosmetic production? How’s that for an idea? You’re welcome! All I ask in return is a lifetime supply please.
I know I’ve also mentioned that a number of my blogging friends have demonstrated their own entrepreneurial flair and are currently selling a variety of scarves, jewellery and clothing on their blogs (see here). The scarf that I’m wearing in the above picture is from School Gate Style and she has a dazzling array in a variety of colour combinations which will truly test your shopping willpower. Great for Christmas presents if you’re stuck.
And so I’m off. That great Irish institution, The Late Late Toy Show is being broadcast tonight. The living room is awash with excited girls, chocolate and sweets … Flaky will be grimly clutching her wine glass (bottle) throughout.
I will be back later in the week. There are the plaid trousers that I’ve yet to show you … not to mention my new high heeled ankle boots. I was successful … not in Clarks unfortunately (Oi, Clarks, when will you extend your online service to Ireland??) but in TK Maxx. Stay tuned …
Enjoy your weekend
