Arb Post

I am more nervous in a hairdresser's chair than I am in a dentist's chair.
Today I went to a new hairdresser (you may remember my usual one did my hair black last time. And orange the time before. So she is now history).
I explained to the new one:
"I really want to look different, colourwise. Lighter please. Much lighter."
(You know how it is when you just need a drastic change?)

There was good and bad news.
The good news? Its do-able.
The bad news? It'll take about 6 months because she has to gradually lighten the base colour.
Eh! No instant new-me today.

But its definitely lighter - so its a start.

Next on my list?
A salon spray tan -
I can't wait - haven't had a tan in years. And that used to be one of the main joys of summer for me.
The thought of having it again - yeeeeeHA!

Looking good my friend. My hairdresser stopped working because she is having a baby and I am too afraid to go to anybody else;(

I haven't had a tan in years either...let us know how it turns out.
