Oh my goodness me isn't life funny the way it can go from slow and dull to WAY too busy in such a short space of time. Sales have recently shot up so fast that some days I worry I might run out of stock (not that I am complaining at all mind you), I have also been continuing to source stock and work on my 'real life' store (more about that in another post), oh and the last two days I have been doing what I like to call 'man work' ie helping my step father build a portable bar for a wine company. Any one who knows me would be mildly surprised if not amused at the thought me sanding, hammering and gluing but hey, he needed the help and I needed the cash so why not! The only down side is that I am now covered in scratches and bruises, have a pulled muscle in my wrist, and some horribly rough hands from all that sanding. Anyway as I result I felt like I needed to do something to counter balance this man work, so after watching a very inspiring little tutorial on rag curls over at The Fiercest Lilliputian I thought I'd give it a go myself.
Now I must warn you that in most of these photos I am not wearing any make up and have just come home after having a shower at my mums house (due to the fact that the water coming out of our taps right now is a disturbing brown colour and smells like something died in the pipes... oh the joy of living off tank water!).
Late last night:
2. Rag curls in (may need some practice still)
3. Scarf turban around head because I feel WAY too silly being seen the way I do in photo 2. In fact to be honest I quickly rushed to be and turned off the lights so that my partner wouldn't see me like this!
First thing this morning:
5. Rags out and looking silly!
6. Some evidence of curl! Hair still slightly wet though so had breakfast in the sun to help it dry faster
(probably should have left rags in).
Getting ready to go out:
Hair do worked quite nicely with one of my favourite vintage hats that I bought in a Paris vintage store a few months back.
Oh and one last thing... look at these cute hibiscus hair flowers I found at a $2 shop this afternoon. They look like just the right amount of kitsch that I'm going to need this summer.
