Link Love #002

So I thought I’d start off this weeks Link Love (last week here) with an update. A few weeks ago I dyed my hair with L’oreal Preferrance Mousse and at first I liked the colour and all was good in hair world (original post). But now that I have had a few more washes the colour is now completely gone. Like washed right out. Can’t even tell it was once very dark brown, back to my old professionally done highlights. Needless to say I WON’T be box dying my hair again, professionals are the way to go here.

Lilly Pulitzer Sale

Only 15 hours left in the Lilly Pulitzer Sale. Some of the clothes are a little too feminine and colorful for my taste but I did pick out some items I can see mixing in my closet.

Is there a theme here? Not one for bright greens, pinks or purples. I can definitely see myself saving those summer dresses for next year and mixing up this beautiful blouse with some edgy fall pieces in my closet. This gold clutch would make a great make up bag. I am in DESPERATE need of a new makeup bag as I’m currently carrying around my essentials in a zip lock bag right now! Know of any cute ones around the web?

Grilled Squash, Tomato and Zuchinni
All I did was crank up the BBQ, spray the veggies with olive oil and heavily sprinkle Mrs. Dash garlic blend all over. Cover the pan in tinfoil and poke some holes in the top. I let mine roast for over an hour.

This Is The Deck Life Dealt You

I was running late, and hungover again. I wish I could skip this entire day.

Friday morning, 7:00 am, the annoying alarm on my cell phone buzzed, urging me to get my ass out of bed and into the bathroom. I quickly stuffed my hair into a low ponytail, brushed my teeth, squeezed into some jeans and an old black grad hoodie. My best friend Alice was outside waiting for me in her civic, equally as distraught.

“K, like what happened last night?”
“We did it again.”
I took a sip of her chai latte. Too hot.

L’oreal Preference Mousse

I dyed my hair… out of a box. I have not done this since I was in Grade 8. But I was desperate. My roots were coming in, my highlights were fading and I was stuck at work, living in a remote location 80 kilometers from any sort of hair salon. I always get a professional dye job because I have heard how bad box dyes are for you hair but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do sometimes! I decided to go with the L’oreal Paris Preference Mousse that I had seen about online. I asked another blogger a few questions, cashed in $15 and went for it. Here are my results…
