...with my hair.

I loved the chunks of grey in my hair. And I loved the length. But I needed a change. Back in the 80s I wanted to do a bold colour (and not just a spray on fun colour). But I was afraid of bleach, how quickly my roots would show, and my mother's reaction. 

My lovely chunks of grey meant I didn't need to bleach anything. The roots will grow in grey no dark brown, which could look really fun with the blue fading and growing out. And my mother's opinion no longer comes with the potential to get grounded.... so my grey is now blue. 

Blue Hair

I am loving the reactions (and the non-reactions which are sometimes more fun). And BTW my mother loves it.

I love plaid. Last fall I picked up a this awesome plaid shirt. I had been looking for a plaid shirt for a LONG time, but I wasn't interested in a tiny shrunken style shirt - they didn't fit usually fit, were too short, and gaped. In the end I found this awesome orange and […]

A little Throwback Thursday (tbt) to brighten up a stormy Thursday in Vancouver. This Toni Basil video takes me back to Grade 9 and my first high school dance. It still makes me want to dance. Every. Single. Time. With a vaudevillian performer mother and an orchestra conductor father, it is likely that Toni was born performing. But […]

I realize it is September and it seems a bit late to be posting about ice cream. And the Vancouver weather has has been less than sunny the past few days. But I don't believe that ice cream is just for kids or summer. I am a 365 days a year ice cream person. Even in the […]

I rarely quote Hollywood on sage advise on getting older. But I love this particular one from Cameron Diaz. Aging is living. Cameron Diaz It is wise in so many ways.  It is a positive thought and frames aging as an opportunity to live your life. People spend too much energy whining about aging. We need […]

When I started this blog in 2010 I thought I could always find inspiration to write about style and fashion. Well the dearth of posts over the past year has shown I was clearly wrong. I started to find sitting down to write about what I wore, my favourite shoes, or a new piece of clothing […]

Way back in July I attended the 40+ Blogger Meet-up in Vancouver. Then there was camping vacation, work deadlines, storms, power outages (32 hours), family funerals, school starting, sick husband, sick kid, sick me, and then sick me again with pneumonia... and all of a sudden it is Halloween. Seems odd to be posting pictures […]

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of my first top knot on twitter. I was hesitant at first, as I wondered if I was too old for this style. But I reminded myself that I think it is more important to dress for the occasion and not my age. And I decided this was something I could pull […]
