Lady Bird...Lady Bug...

Friday, September 23, 2011

Can you believe Take 10 has been going for over a year now?! Its crazy that just over a year ago some of these girls were strangers to me and now we are all such good friends..
That's what take ten is all about building a small community between us..
This challenge was sponsored by QVC we got to pick a Butler & Wilson ring.
I was the only one to pick this little ladybird ring...

Its a little glitzy for me but I think it'll be a cute little accessory for autumn..
I got my hair cut and coloured for a hair show the other day.. I got sucked in by it being free, I love the colour which you can really see in the last photo its three layers of colour. Copper on top, cherry red in the middle and blonde on the under layer. BUT... I hate the cut!
The guy really cut into my layers and the copper red layers are cut not far below my chin! Which looks really out of proportion with the blonde layer :( I washed it this morn and found it so unmanageable that Ive had to put it up in a top knot..

morale of the story a free hair cut..ain't worth it!!

  27. It's a shame that the guy messed up your hair, but on the other hand the colours are gorgeous! It shoudl grow really quickly though, give it a couple of weeks and maybe it'll be lots better :)
