Manic Panic Easter!

Well, easter is right around the corner. I love easter, because I love candy - and that's that. Any occasion where I'm able to eat more candy than usual, I'm completely for. I think maybe the fact that I'm high on sugar practically 24/7 is the reason for my sleep deprivation. But I just can't help myself, 'cause that sugar is just too sweet!

I wanna dye my hair. I've bleached my hair for 3 or 4 years now, and that's counting all the time it took for me to go from pitch black to brown, to brown-ish/orange, orange/yellow and finally blonde. I've dreamt of having red hair for years now, but after the hassle of getting my hair from black - to another actual color, I've sort of been putting it off. Plus, I've been looking for a cool toned blue/red color, not an orange/red which would make me look sick. And, let's not forget the commitment it takes to have red hair. However, putting the red hairdye on hold for now - when it comes to blonde, I'm really not a big fan of those yellow toned blonde colors. I like the more cool tones, which is what I have now. I find that it suits my skintone better. Eventhough my hair is really, really.. really, blonde at the time, I would like to find out if I could get it even more extreme! So I recieved a tip - Manic Panic's Virgin Snow. I've checked out Manic Panic before, but for red colors. I never even though of looking at blonde. The thing is, this color is not blonde, it's more white. Oh yes, white. If something were to take care of the last pieces of yellow in my hair, this would probably be it! So I guess I'll have to get my hands on a couple of these Virgin Snow containers very soon! Now, enough of my random haircolor rambling! Let's enjoy easter and this entertaing song and dance with Fred Astaire and the lovely Rita Hayworth.

Goodness Grable!

Trying out Betty Grabel's characteristic victory rolls. Since I first noticed this style I've loved it. It might be a little bit.. over the top (but not really). At least for these, oh so modern times - but who cares? It's beautiful. Besides, you'll love the attention. It's not that hard to achieve if you're comfortable with making victory rolls. But even then, if you have bangs, you're probably gonna end up feeling like you wanna tear your hair out anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter. Then again, completely worth it in the end if the prize is looking Grablelicious for a night!
