Firstly, I apologise for the low quality photos that may follow. My trusty Nokia is currently in the shop waiting to be fixed and my HTC camera sucks in comparison. I also apologise for any double up with instagram, I try to take different photos but I've been lazy.
First up, some pics of my new hair after a visit to Miss Fox last week. I loved the blow wave and how natural the colour looks. Luna put only a small amount of blonde foils through the roots (and didn't actually use foils, all with a brush on selective strands) but it looks so much fresher. Also had a decent amount chopped of the end so that probably helps.
Immediately after taking these photographs I put my hair up, put on a bike helmet and rode home. Such a shame.
My weekend in Brisbane was lovely and warm. I even went for a bike ride down to the beach with my Dad. He's been riding a lot lately and I struggled to keep up!
My sister made me these cute rainbow cupcakes (gluten free to as my baby sister has recently been diagnosed as a coeliac!) and we had a little party with some of my relatives. Was so nice to see everyone and to have nothing I had to do and no where I had to be. Helped that it was a Sunday afternoon and I knew I didn't have to work until Wednesday.
On Monday (my birthday), Mum and I went down the coast for lunch with my sister (who is working on a construction project down there, she's a Civil Engineer too). Then we did a little shopping. Two of my sisters had no idea what to buy me so I was shopping for a present from them...and didn't find anything. For some reason I'm not finding much that appeals to me in the shops lately.
I did get this wallet though, it's officially from my Nanna. It's incredibly soft and quite a simple, thin, plain wallet (exactly what I was hoping to find) taupe/beige leather with contrasting darker brown inside. It's a part of the new pierre cardin range if anyone is interested and after a wallet for under $100, which also included a bunch of gorgeous pastel coloured multi toned wallets, which were very lovely but not my thing. I'm a bit boring like that.
I also got a few dresses for my birthday (work dresses was a request) and wore this one to work last week. Please ignore the creases, and the ugly disabled bathroom at work. When I ride to work and it's yucky outside it's the only chance I have to take outfit photos.
And this one. I think I'm going to refer to this dress as my 'Star Trek' dress. I don't know much about Star Trek but I'm pretty sure that's how they dressed.
So that's it from me, I'm going to try and blog a little more frequently than my slack once-a-week posts. And I have more than a few blogs to catch up on too!
