A Patchy Dye Job

by Meghann on January 27, 2010

It all started with a little box

Per your suggestions I stopped at Walgreens on the way home and picked up a package of ammonia free, semi-permanent hair dye. I spent 45 minutes staring at all the color options and finally decided on one that was slightly darker than my current color and looked fun and sexy on the box.

Say good bye faded highlights!

(please excuse the ‘i’ve been a ponytail all day’ hair lol)

With very little hair dying experience I dove right into lathering it on.

Umm… yeah I had no idea what I was doing.

10 Minutes + 1 Shower + 15 Minutes of Blow Drying and Straightening later… I was in love with the color.

However, I wasn’t so in love with the patches on the side of my head.

I’m also not in love with how my hair cut is growing out. I may need to give in and get that cut asap. Maybe they can fit me in on Saturday?

So my at home dye job wasn’t a total fail, but definitely not a total winner either. Perhaps next time I will recruit a friend or *cough* Derek *cough* to help me out . For now I will just need to live with the patches. I mean, they’re not that bad, are they?

I may know something about running and healthy eating, but I am clueless with anything beauty related. Maybe one day I could do a post on my lack of make up skills. ;)

The strawberry flavor of Oikos finally made their first appearance at my Publix this last weekend.

It only took them 6 months to end up on their shelves. I wonder how long it will take the new carmel and chocolate flavors to make their appearance? I hope not too long!

I had the Strawberry Oikos this afternoon with a little granola.

Yum!

The strawberry was tad on the sweet side, but still delicious. :)

I’m afraid to say dinner wasn’t very pretty. :(

I baked some sliced acorn squash for 15 minutes at 415

And attempted to do a faux calzone with a sundried tomato chicken sausage.

I grilled the sausage, wrapped it in 1/2 a flatbread, added some marinara sauce, and baked it in the oven for about 5 minutes. I had to use tooth picks to make sure the flat bread stayed wrapped around the sausage.

I’m not sure how much I really like this flavor of sausage. It just tastes off somehow. :(

Dessert made up for the patchy hair job and so-so dinner.

Egg nog ice cream with a candy cane joe-joe crumbled on top. Delicious. :)

I’m off to ponder about life.

Good Night!
