Before and After.

Although I wish I could always have someone pamper me by coloring my hair, I don't have the bread to shell out every 4-6 weeks to have it done for me. So, I do it myself most of the time. I am a bit like Mrs. Slocombe. It is a little bit different color each time (I mix up my own concoction of colors) and I sort of go with whatever color I feel like at the time.

My hubby thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of me whilst coloring my hair...

This was my first attempt at using foils to highlight my hair. It was not as good as when Christen does it, but it it loads better that gray roots. I thought I did pretty good for my first attempt.

Here are the results

I thought it turned out rather well.

So today I went to church and ran into a friend I haven't seen for a couple of months. I wished I had my camera with me, because her outfit was to die for. I admired some of her jewelry and she whipped off the ring and bracelet and insisted I have it!

Mary gave me the iridescent ring and brown and beige stretch bracelet. "It's just material stuff my dear" she says. We went to lunch then and had a really lovely afternoon.

I would not have given this dress set a second look new, but at $3 in the thrift shop it was a different story. I don't have much green and thought I'd give it a go. I turned in into a jumper and added a belt to make it less frumpy.

My friend invited me to a party next week so I'm hoping to show you some pictures of her great style.
