One curl

I curled my hair for work today (well, attempted to, GHD curling is hard) and there was this one lone perfect curl that has remained perfect all day. It's very frustrating that the rest of my curls kinda failed. But at least there was one!

I am pointing to the perfect curl. But cameroid does not do it justice. Believe me though, it's lovely.

The Anti-Bucket List

So coming up with a Bucket List is pretty easy. So I thought I'd instead write a list of things I don't want to do in my life. Far more interesting, and far more difficult!

So here is a list of things I don't want to do in my life:
  • I will never go out with someone who doesn’t read books.
I love reading and books. They bring me so much pleasure, and I don’t understand people who don’t enjoy reading. Books and reading have always been a massive part of my life, so no future bf of mine will be a non-reader
  • I will never live alone.
I have watched too many scary movies in my lifetime to ever be able to live alone. All the squeaks and creaks would freak me out WAY too much. Plus, while I do like my alone time, I like being around people too much to ever be able to live alone. Not for me thanks.
  • I will never smoke or try hard drugs.
I think smoking is the foulest habit ever. And I will never try cocaine/heroin/meth or any of those really scary, harmful drugs. Delving in drugs is just stupid; I honestly don’t see the point. Nothing is gained.
  • I will never eat shark fin soup.
The way they make this is absolutely disgusting, and I would not eat it on principal. Glad to hear in the news recently that New Zealand is in the process of outlawing Shark-finning in our waters. Yay for NZ!

So that's all I could think of at this point, but I may revisit this list as things come to me. What's on your anti-bucket list, readers?

Hair up #2

So I had a hair treatment today and my lovely hairdresser wanted to practice a hair-up on me afterwards. I was more than happy to oblige, and here's the amazing result:

She did a quiff thingy on top, plaited the sides then did a spirally thing at the back (super technical terms haha), and these photos don't really do it justice. It looks very elegant and lovely and I hope hope hope it lasts the night so I can show it off at work tomorrow!!

A fantastic read

I just finished a book that I can’t get out of my head. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. It’s a beautifully written novel about one man’s search for redemption, set in the backdrop of a turbulent Afghanistan (the shift from monarchy to Taliban rule). I think it is quite possibly the most poignant book I’ve ever read. I cannot fault it, it is just fantastic.
The crux of the novel is the protagonist’s search for atonement, after an event during his childhood had continuous repercussions on his life. But while this is the continuous theme running through the novel, the various relationships that are explored, along with the intersection of Afghanistan’s political situation, make for many layers to sink your teeth into.
This book is a lesson in the persistence of the past, of friendship, love and tension, the abuse of power and personal growth. There’s just so much to learn from this novel, so many ways the lessons apply and make us evaluate our own life. It’s a definite tear-jerker as well.
Because I think everyone needs to read this book (and also because I do not want this book review to become too gushy), I won’t say much else other than that I’ve read many great books in my life, but this one stands out considerably. Please read.

From the woe files

Ok, if you're sick of my constant complaining on here, don't read on. I've warned you. Therefore, if you're reading on, you have no right to get annoyed at me. ok? cool.

I want my dark hair back!!! When it was dark it was smooth and shiny and healthy and thick. My hair is now soooooo thin and not the nicest colour and straw-like. And it makes me sad when I see girls with lovely hair because I get very jealous.

I am super impatient when it comes to my hair, I just want long luscious locks asap!!

(first world problem I know)
