mimosa-b-q

DSC_0026


Annie and her awesome roommies are parting ways since their landlord decided to sell their amazing town house. So they had everyone over for a 1227 style B-B-Q, a Mimosa-B-Q! I arrived about an hour and a half (okay, two hours!) late since I decided to try to clean up my own house before hand and had some trouble with the vacuum cleaner. Lets just say, at first I thought maybe vacuums just didn't work on hardwood floors, then I thought maybe our carpet really wasn't that bad, and then about an hour after the vacuum turned itself off (it over heated)I realized that the hose was clogged. Woops!

At least it gave me some time to give myself some highlights! I have been highlighting my own hair off and on since high school. But I learned the proper way to highlight and colour hair when I worked in a salon when I was 19-20. (ie- don't try this at home) I actually do a bunch of my friends colour too! Anyway - I just do about 15 foils through the top and sides (a 1/3 highlight) since I have a nice base colour and my hair lightens a lot with the sun. I think it's a little brighter than I thought it would be, but I like it and think it will be perfect for the transition into summer! Best part, I didn't get any bleed spots (it's really hard to avoid them when you try to foil your own hair)!

So cleaning, home hair colouring, and mimosa-b-queing, that was my Sunday, what did you do last weekend?
