Happy Friday! And happy 9 degrees! (That’s not happy. At all. Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.)
I woke up this morning starving and fixed that problem with French Toast!
I mixed together one spoonful of flax seed, one egg + one egg white, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little bit of milk, and dipped two slices of whole wheat bread (toasted so it would stay crunchy) into the mix. Then I pan-fried it and added half of a sliced banana for good measure, even though Marsh was OUT of organic bananas (the horror) and I had to eat a regular one.
Remember how I had a hair experiment last night? Well, it turned out to be a success! I didn’t do anything drastic, just a trim and a color update.
For some reason, every single time I get my hair highlighted, I HATE it the next day and feel like my whole face just looks unnatural and puffy afterward. I think it’s because I always try to go too blond. So I just asked for some natural brownish highlights instead:
Please excuse the weird way it’s lying against my head. My hair girl attacked me with a flat iron, as they always do, after she scolded me about how fried my ends were and how bleached out color made me look washed out. Which brings me to a Fun Fashion Friday!
I’ll just pass along this hair tip she gave me, because it totally makes sense:
Only wash your hair every other day at the most, no matter what the texture of your hair is. I am guilty of washing mine every day, and then torturing it with the flat iron and hair dryer afterward. I told her politely that my hair is hopeless if I don’t wash it every day and gets too gross, and she said that people think that because they don’t give it a chance.
If you let your hair get into a routine of only being washed every other day or every few days, it won’t stay oily on the off days more than three weeks to a month. You just have to give it a chance. She said not to give up and eventually it will start looking the same on the “on” days as the “off” days and it will be much healthier, softer, shinier, and less damaged in general.
Pretty cool tip….I guess I’ll give it a try and just wait out the month of ickiness. At least it’s only February, not one of the good months.
So that’s it on the fashion front…except for this hilarious quote I stumbled across on Glamour.com regarding harem pants:
I think that the weirdest women’s fashion choice has been those weird dumpy pants that make it look like girls have poops in their pants. I don’t want to talk to anybody wearing those pants.
This reinforces the fact that guys will never understand fashion, per say, but they do know what’s horribly unflattering. For the most part. As for my opinion, unless you’re J. Lo, your boyfriend will probably wholeheartedly agree with Peter’s assessment. I actually agree wholeheartedly with it too. Who invented those things? Oh yeah, MC Hammer. I’m pretty sure they looked horrible on him too.
Deep thoughts by Casey. There you go.
