If you follow the blog you’ll know I’ve been on a mission to grow my hair out for summer. I’ve never been a huge hair extensions fan, so all I could really do was let it grow. Yes, that “lovely” song from Frozen came into my head too. Sorry. I’ve tried lengthening and strengthening shampoo and conditioner which is definitely working, but there was one thing I forgot about when I decided to grow out my mop.
I have cleaned like a fiend for the past two evenings. And before you ask, there is no clean freak in this girl (I’m the opposite). The reason being was the six weekly unwanted ritual; the rental inspection.
We all get stressed, and lately my job has been crazy. So much so I took a day off last week for me, a zen day to relax, recoup and clear my mind.
Shift work is the worst. It is so hard to get into a proper schedule, especially with sleep. And for that reason, I spend at least half my week with bags under my eyes.
I spent Sunday like most Australian’s – celebrating Australia Day in the pool, drinking punch and listening to Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown. It was a fantastic day but since then my skin has been dry and irritated and needs some rejuvenation.
Etsy is one of my favourite online haunts. My cart is filled to the brim with vintage wiggle skirts, geeky gift ideas for my girlfriend and button earrings. Yes, button earrings. But majority are over in the US & UK and with postage and stuff they’re just not worth the price. So I decided to make my own 🙂 My sister L and I spent hours in Spotlight picking buttons – and now I know why the Etsy peeps charge so much for their DIY goodness – buttons can be effing expensive! I paid $5 AUD for ONE BUTTON! Not a set, one! Thankfully my Mum the craft queen has six thousand stray buttons at home so she send a whole heap up so I didn’t have to spend a weeks pay on the tiny things. Note: strong glue is recommended! I had to redo them as I used the wrong glue the first time. Fiddly job , but good turn out hey? Em x
