An Update

It's been a little bit since I started the blue hair thing, and at school and with my family, it's been a hit!
I've ended up bleaching more of it (with better finger protection) and now almost all of my hair is blue.
My friend who always dyes her hair was a little put out by it, but I really like it, and I don't know whether I will keep it up.
Anyways, it looks a little like this:




The last two I took today, laying in the snow.
Sooo cold, but I think they turned out nicely :)

Oh yes, I bought a new camera today, so expect more photography soon.
Right now I am a bit busy, compiling a portfolio together to send to Western's Art department tomorrow.
Cross your fingers for me :)

I have also been diving into the cooking world, that is another art form I like- culinary. Pictures of my food and recipe book as that progresses, as well as Operation Kitchen, to revive my mom's love of cooking and whatnot. She's been a little against it since we almost had to move like 3 times. It's a long story, I won't go into the details, but basically she had it all decorated with her fish and things, and then she lost interest after she had to pack it all up so it never came out, and she's dreaded cooking ever since. I want to make her kitchen a place that is easier to love. So pictures and an outline of what I am doing are soon to come!

This blog is going to be up and running soon enough.
Inspiration is everywhere, I just need to look for it more often! :)

Hair Gone Blue

Right now it is 11:18 PM and I am regretting some things.
I got the grand idea to finally use my hair dye not too long ago. Which explains why I am sitting here, awake, with my har all gross.
I am on step one of the process.... oh dear.
I will have to dye it before school tomorrow, since it needs time  to dry tonight because my hairdryer is in my mom's room.

But right now it looks like this:

And to help time go by, I will post  pictures as I go on in this process...

These are the weapons of choice for this... disaster in the making:

A packet of Quick White, a super strength powder lightener.
and
A bottle of Salon Care developer creme.

It just sounds scary, doesn't it?

I  put it on with gloves, and you let it sit for like 50 minutes.When the bleach dries I'm going to use a flat iron and straighten it, snce ehat helps it kill your hair even more effectviely :)

A while later

A small problem has occurred.
I have washed m y hands several times, but there is still bleach powder on them.
I hope it does not eat through my fingers :(
I need those.

Later
Almost finished! :)

Its time for bed now
It is... going to be interesting.
I will have to get up early in the AM to finish it, and I will update this then!

That morning
OKay, I woke up at 6:30ish so that I could get this yellow-white out of my hair!
IfI do this again, I will make sure I have a whole day to work on this, and I will bleach it twice or more, so it will be more vibrant.
But right now the color is soaking on my head, so the whole thing looks dark, likee normal. But hopefully, soon, it will be awesome.

Progress

I wrote my 10 page paper for English.
Word deleted it.
I am taking a break for a moment while I throw things, and type here, angrily.

</3

Today in Art, I started a new picture, and finished my Marilyn Monroe.
I will post pictures when I take them tomorrow.
The new picture is another shading study, this time of giraffes. Jason helped me pick it out. What a nice fella, huh?

I'm waiting for it to be closer to 3:00 so I can go to the school for a brief rehearsal for the play, and then I am going to go to the Bellis Fair mall for a bit of shopping.
What fun. 
:)

And then aparantly, I am retyping a whole paper... 
But we will dodge that subject for a moment.

Today, I left at lunch, as I am starting to, lately. I went to the bookstore to get some soup and tea. (How artsy of me :P) and I got a crafting book.
But, not like a douchey grandma craft book. It's this one:

And I'm going to get a LOT of use out of it I think :)

I don't have any other updates, except to say that I'm going to start running (...walking ;P) again, and try to use the Wii Fit a few times a week, because I am a lazy girl.
But not for long :)

that's all I've got!
Until next time...

sincerely
