Firstly, it was my birthday on the 10th of May. I turned 22. The novelty of being 21 was over and I guess you could say I'm comfortably in my 'early twenties' now lol. Feeling a little wiser haha.
I got a hair cut! If you've been reading my blog for a while, a few months ago, I cut my long hair off and got a basic shorter style, well that had grown out a fair bit and it was in its in-between-meh-nothingness stage. I don't feel comfortable spending heaps on a hair cut, so I bought one of those discount vouchers off OurDeal for a cut at Salon Te Pura in Ascot Vale which also included wash, treatment and blow wave.
My hairdresser was George and I found out he was the manager of the salon. I pretty much always go into a hair salon with photos of what I want but for some reason I didn't this time. I told George that I wanted my hair shorter and just touch my shoulders and a side fringe. He suggested I get a more 'solid' style (as opposed to my layers) and have the back shorter and have it subtly and gradually get longer in the front. I was definitely a bit concerned with the idea as it's different to any other style I've had in the past but he convinced me it would be a lot more flattering. He was right lol. It's a bit edgier and fuller with more volume. I love love love the cut! It really does flatter my face much more than what I had before. So I was over the moon about most of my hair but what I didn't like was how he cut my fringe and particularly how he styled it. I was put off by the fringe so much that I had to pin it back for the rest of the day (since I got the haircut in the morning) and I never pin my fringe back. I really don't know what he was thinking there...but the day after I fixed and re-styled my fringe and it was fine. Here are a couple of pics a couple days after the cut.
Note to self: need to learn how to blow dry my hair as good as a pro lol. Couldn't even get close to the volume and shape he achieved on me.
Lastly, retail and Diva have been a huge part of my life. It was my first job ever and I'd been there for 3 years. Resigning was a tough decision for me but I did and started working at Nine West late April. It definitely felt like a shock at first and quite frustrating, since I was going from being a veteran who knew how every little thing worked, to a total newbie. I'm settling in well now and getting used to it all. (I'll definitely be doing a post of all the Diva goodies I bought before leaving, there's a lot lol.)
Anyway, just hit midnight. Need to catch up on sleep! Studying for exams is a bitch... Goodnight!
