What I've Been up to

December 06, 2013

Sorry for again going radio silent. Things have been pretty busy chez moi so unfortunately this wee little blog has gotten the short end of the stick of late. I thought I'd do a quick post to update you on some things that I've been doing (and yes, these photos are all from Instagram, so if you follow me there, you've already seen them).

Pre-haircut selfie
On Nov 22 I looked like this. Yes, this is a selfie taken at work. Don't judge
New pixie-cut hairdo
The After. #operationsnipsnip was a success. I chopped off and donated about 14" of hair to help make a wig for a cancer patient. This was my second donation, and sadly my last. The family curse of premature gray means I won't be able to do it again :(
Brunch with eggs benedict
I met some lovely fellow bloggers from Toronto for Brunch on November 23rd. It was nice to chat, share and learn from fellow bloggers. I hope we do it again soon.
DIY marquee s
I've been working on school work for two courses. This is the light I created fro my design class. (Hopefully I'll blog about it soon). Only one more class to go until I'm done until January!
how to be a godparent pamplet
 On December 1st I became a Godmother to the daughter of a really good friend. It's an honour, and I hope I'm a good one.
Para paints decorator kit
As you know I've been selected as a member of the Para Paints Blog Crew. On Wednesday I came home to this at my door - the Architecture kit from Para Paints. It contains every Para Paint colour and is huge. I think there may be too many colours to choose from.
one of kind show coat check sign
Yesterday I went to the One of a Kind Show for the second time, and I bought a bunch of stuff for the people on my Christmas list, however I can't show you what I got - it would ruin the surprise on the big day. The Christmas One of a Kind Show runs through Sunday, December 8th - if you're in Toronto you should go.
I can't believe we're at the end of the first week of December already - where has the year gone?

  1. I know I already told you, but I just love your new haircut! it really suits you!

  2. I also already said it, but your haircut is awesome. I'm totally unschooled in this: you can't donate your hair if you have greys?

  3. As it takes hair from several people to make one wig all the hair is dyed to match. For that reason all donated hair has to be 'virgin' hair -untreated in any way. According to the Beautiful Lengths website they only want hair with up to 5% grey as it's harder to dye. It think I'm right at that cut-off :( Stupid genes.

  4. I love your new haircut! I've had a similar cut twice in the last three years, but it sure doesn't look that good :)

  5. WOW WOW WOW!! You look gorgeous! Short hair really suits you. I think it's fabulous and what an amazing thing to do.

  6. I don't know how I missed your cut on instagram but it looks FANTASTIC!! It suits the shape of your face so well! Gorgeous!! And for such a worthy cause. I would love to be able to do this one day but my hair grows so slow it would probably take me my entire life to grow it long enough, lol!

  7. My hair grows unbelievably fast which is a problem when you have short hair - I have to get it cut about every three-ish weeks which gets pretty expensive :(
