ROOTS …{& completely gratuitous}

I need some serious salon time.

LOOK AT MY ROOTS! Not to mention the unruly length of my hair! {secretly, I am kind of loving my long hair though…it makes me feel young} And, it hasn’t been this long since I was, well, young; 16. This is partially the reason I have not made an appointment with my radical stylist; I have to get it cut and I don’t really want to. {the other part is that I am lazy}

However, Tiffany, over at I am Styleish, got a digital perm and that has got me thinking if I never had to use a curling iron again {on my straight-ass hair}, all my dreams would come true.

yes, imac @ work again

you can’t even see my part, lol

And then I decided to show you my shoes which I don’t wear too often because they were my wedding party shoes {M by MJ – fit my massive hooves – yay} …and I was excited about posting a pic.

It didn’t occur to me until after taking all the ridiculous pics below to just REMOVE them like a smart person. but it did make me laugh.

this one is KILLING ME!
not only does it look like a limb that doesn’t belong to me…I look FURIOUS.

note* I’ve had these 7forallmankind jeans for at least 7 years now! Funtastic.

the boss just came back …gotta go 🙂

    looking at your hair here, you are the perfect candidate for a digital perm. do it!

    And to answer your questions it didn’t damage my hair, it’s still really thick and soft. The only thing it did was dry it out a bit but that was a good thing for me.

    I love the shoes and the furious/perfectly perpendicular leg photo is hilarious! it totally looks like someone else made you hold their leg!

    I don’t think your roots look so bad? They’re definitely not Heather Locklear from Melrose bad.

    Ugh! I hear you on the roots thing. I want to get my done, but I decided to throw my son a big birthday party that he’ll never remember instead. So, no pictures of me at the party…

    I would KILL for my hair to look like that. I have the length but the curl just won’t hold. It’s sad really.
