So I have a week off work and have come down to London for a long weekend for some much needed catch ups with my bestie as well as seeing my biggest brother who relocated here last year. I’ve got a few hours to spare so I will do a quick update which I’ve been meaning to do for a while but it seems time just does slipping away from me with other projects and work getting in the way.
First of I blogged not long ago of my wolfy having gone through surgery to remove what thankfully turned out to be a lipoma from her ribcage.With no great surprise she bounced back within a short space of time and yesterday, just over two weeks from her operation, she had her stitches removed. It was pretty much the day after that normal service resumed and it was hard trying to encourage her to take it easy when her nature is want to go out and trek for miles on end, but she soon got the message when she was puffed out after a quick chase round the garden.
It is always amazing to see anyone or thing pull back from a health scare but the fact she had pretty invasive surgery only two weeks ago and to be back almost back to full health within that time is pretty astounding. The only remains now are a big bald patch which is getting fluffier by the day and a wound healing over quite nicely.
As for myself I’ve had a mildly busy time at work with a film festival but have starting looking into alternative career options and study paths to get there, that is in its very early days so I won’t talk about it until I’ve got the ball rolling a bit more. The only change has been the hair colour (again). I am a natural dark blonde which I have been for a few months but fancied a change and so opted for platinum.
I just used a generic premium home hair kit for bleaching but was really impressed with L’oreal Feria Pastel Toning which adds a subtle colour to your hair all depending on how long you leave it in. It seems to work and feel a lot like Directions semi permanent dye which I have used for years and slather my hair in daily to add an extra silvery tone to my hair. The shop only had the L’oreal toning in pink which was my least favourite but I opted to have a go, however if I see the lilac colour I will be snapping up numerous bottles as the quantity lasts forever on my short hair. The downside is that the colour is as it says; temporary and fades very quickly wash by wash so it’s not ideal if you don’t fancy topping it up. However it’s not messy to apply at all and can be applied as a generic conditioner on your hair when in the bath/shower and left for just five minutes to start adding a hint of colour.
So that’s me for now… I will most likely do an update at some point next week as regards my weekend in London so keep your eyes posted for that. There are some new film reviews over at www.lipstickfilms.com to pass the time if you so wish to check out!
