This last week has been a crazy busy one because we were planning Asa’s first birthday party (pictures coming tomorrow!) and as a result my husband and I didn’t ever get a chance to grab outfit shots over the weekend. Not that I really dressed up much. I have basically been wearing the same dress all week (thank you, all-day pregnancy sickness and laziness…)
But I did make one effort today to up my style game… and it failed miserably. Before I go back to dark brown, I wanted to try one crazy color in my bleached-over hair. I had thought I would do purple, but after Googling a certain color brand and seeing this picture, I decided pink would better suit me. I was pretty hopeful after how well red worked, but the color I chose said not to use developer (which has bleach in it), so we didn’t. But, as you can see, it didn’t really take. My hair is now about four different colors — pink, peach, red, brown — and I don’t know if this is due to pregnancy, the color that was already in it, or what. Who knows. I really don’t care that much; at this point, my hair has been so worked over that I’m ready to take it to the chopper’s, get a new haircut, and darken out all the colors. And possibly use this as inspiration for the cut. Even though I really, really am reluctant to cut off any length; the ends are so shot, it really needs a good working-over to trim out all the dead, fried stuff. But I should consider myself lucky; after 10 years of messing around with my hair, this is the first real “disaster” (if it can be counted as a disaster) that has happened, and it’s really not that bad. In real life, the color variance isn’t quite as noticeable, and when it’s piled up in a bun I actually kind of like it.

I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging as much! Pregnancy and all that. I’m getting past the bad phase, but I’m still pretty tired most days and I’m looking forward to the second trimester and having more energy.
What have you all been up to? Happy Monday!
(update: after going back to the mirror, I realized that for some reason, the camera captured my hair SO badly. Here’s a better depiction of the pink, and I like it much more after inspecting it further. )
