Have you ever completely forgotten a hair style or color you’ve had and then randomly run across a picture of it and are really surprised? That happened to me this week, I was looking through old photos from last Fall and saw a photo of me with pale purple hair and was really surprised cos I had completely forgot it. It was when I used an organic purple hair dye that I experimented with to trying and makes it pale purple instead of the more medium tone. It looked very bizarre and almost grey at times however I did like it and had for probably 3 months….so I don’t how I managed to forget that but I did. I think I am getting to the point where I need like a folder with all my hair colors all together so I can look back and remember. Plus it’d be good to make sure not repeat looks I’ve done before or maybe just remind myself of ones I really liked. It’s tricky though trying to duplicate hair colors because my hair reacts so differently each time even to bleach and the best colors are always flukes. Let me know what hair style or color you’ve had and then completely blanked out. I’ve thrown in a few photos taken when it was purple for today.
I arrived back from Vancouver a few days ago on the plane and am still adjusting to the time zone change so I thought I’d share a chill self portrait of me today taken in Vancouver. This was taken on the last day of my trip watching the sunset from my best friend’s apartment balcony. It was a great trip, although a little busy and hectic with the wedding for my friend and photo shoots. I got a massive sun burn all over my back as well that didn’t help. The blog will be in full force this week and in the next few weeks there will be lots of photos from my trip so look out for that. Oh and I add a shot of my amazing hairdo that I sported for the wedding. I love it so much!
A little late today on the Self-Portrait Sunday! I toke these photos only a few hours ago while on an adventure to find train tracks with Victor. I wanted to take new photos because I changed my hair this week again! Yes, the blond hair is gone…it lasted a few weeks which is usually as much as I can tolerate before I get bored. I did have it for over 3 weeks however as I wanted to give my hair a rest before bleaching it and to get a really nice pale pink I wanted to make sure I had it as close to white as possible. I kept the part that frames me face blond as I got it very close to being white and I like not having my entire hair one color. My favourite thing to do with my new hair is look through it at the sun. I tried to take pictures of it but it never catches the light the same way my eyes see it, a problem any person with colored hair knows. I am going to be in a dear friend’s wedding party in just over a week and thought the pale pink would look good with the purple bridesmaid dress that I’ll be wearing and more subdued than my usual dark multicolored hair. Pale pink is great for the summer and I am in love with it! Next week it’ll be back to my artsy self-portraits for a few weeks as I am going to be outta town so What I Wore will be on hiatus until I get back.
Have so many plans for this weekend. Started with a really long walk on Saturday and hoping to take another walk later today. Walking around the neighborhood and exploring buildings. Me and Victor are trying to find deserted buildings or factories to explore so we are canvasing our area. These shots were taken this week, as you’ll notice since my hair is new! I just had to show off my half green (with a bit of blended yellow) and half turquoise hair. The half blue and pink was getting faded and boring, so happy with the new look. Haven’t had a chance to take a fancy self-portrait but couldn’t wait to show you guys :)
