Snowy Roof Top Adventures

self portrait (6)My old house that I lived in with Victor for a year and half a few years ago had the most amazing roof top! Thought I’d show you guys the photos I took on the day I decided to explore the rooftops and climb up the adjacent building’s roof. I am scared of heights but I like to push myself and I wanted to see how high I could go ever since we moved in (although no idea why I decided to do it in the winter). You can access the rooftops by walking down the stairwell from our balcony, and then you can climb to the next rooftop by going over the little wall between roofs.

I love this shot. Also if you look closely you may notice the fire escape I went up to reach the ladder to the roof isn’t attached the wall….I didn’t notice this until I was half way up it and it started to sway. Was a little scared and going down it legit felt like it was going to snap off.

It was his dream house for some reason even though it was really noisy since it was right downtown and way too small for two people. We did have some amazing roof parties though.

I am in the stage right now of trying to figure out what hair colors I want to have this year and I’d love to see if I could get my hair back to this amazing blue color – it’s probably one of my favourite colors especially of the strip of light purple that went all around my head. .


Self-Portrait Sunday

Self Portrait (17)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.

Self-Portrait Sunday – 1 Year Ago!

citizenerased I was just thinking today about what was happening in my life in April last year. For one it was sunny, and I had just gotten my facial piercings put in (I cant believe I’ve had these guys for a whole year – I still love them so much), and I had apple colored hair and bangs! So much has changed but still I feel like the same person. I’m actually dying my hair this color again next week, I miss the green. I decided to add a silly one of me trying to do a double exposure. The shots all turned out blurry but I still like this one, I look so serious though!
Maybe I can do a year ago post in April every year, that’d be fun.

Today’s self-portrait is back when I had green and yellow from the summer of last year. Last year I actually had all green last year on St-Patrick’s Day.
