Didn’t Do It

11 Apr

Haircut Day

So I didn’t cut my hair as I had planned to. I had major plans to get this rad curly bob, but after some discussion with my stylist, my curls are a lot looser than Keri Hilson’s and to pull off that cut I’d potentially need to use a curling iron. I was looking for a cut that was less maintenance than my current style (i.e. NO maintenance), so that obviously wasn’t going to work for me.  I’ve also been kind of liking my hair better since I’ve been styling my bangs all curly and flipping it all over into a deep side part.  First day I wore it this way in public I had a famous artist at an art opening ask me if I was an Italian movie star (true story!).

So not wanting to screw up a hairstyle that already had potential, I had my stylist add in some additional layers to make it “bigger”.  I kind of consider a more modernized version of an 80’s style.  So far I love it.

I have this bad habit of never going out to do anything after getting my haircut. Reason I say it’s bad is no girl’s hair is ever as awesome as after they go to the salon, so it’s all the reason to make plans to go out on the town after an appointment. I always just go home and veg out.

Instead of making it a total waste of a good hair day, I decided to try out Jim and my new photo backdrop we installed in our office. Portia even came in for an appearance. The backdrop works really well, just have to get some better light equipment I think. And I think next time I take photos I won’t wrap the backdrop around to the floor so I look like I’m floating. It was fun to test out though!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Jim and I celebrated this new year by first doing karaoke at Pine Box Rock Shop. Though it was crowded, we each got to perform a song. The crowd was great and it was a lot of fun. We’re going to try to hit up their karaoke nights more often in the new year.

Shortly after the ball drop, we hopped on the subway and headed back to our neighborhood and met up with some friends at our local hangout, The Richardson. I really was able to let loose and enjoy myself since I have a three day weekend, which is rare for me.

How was everyone else’s New Years Eve?

Typical New Yorker

I actually took these photos a few weeks ago and never got around to posting them.  I threw this together in a hurry on a Saturday morning.  I realized I had overslept and I was running late to my CSA driver shift.  In order to participate in our local CSA, each member has to volunteer three times over the course of the season.  You have to either volunteer handing out the farm shares or if you have a car, drive the unclaimed shares to the local soup kitchen.

I was driving this morning and didn’t want to be late.  I’ve learned that when you’re in a rush with no time to think, an all black ensemble is the way to go.  Well, technically I’m wearing gray leggings here but you catch my drift.  Wearing all black is such a typical, New Yorker look and considering we’re always in such a rush, I now understand why.  It looks great every time.

This particular outfit was ridiculously comfortable.  It was basically like wearing a sweats but way more presentable.
