Hair and More

This weekend I skipped a Derby party so that I could get my hair cut. 

This is not a post about my avoidance of social gatherings, but rather my blatant avoidance of things that I should do, but don't. Social gathering avoidance is a different topic altogether and shouldn't be taken so lightly. Really it comes down to the ever important debate of pants or no pants. No pants will always win. 

So this haircut, it wasn't just any haircut. It was a last-minute holy-grail same day hair cut. This was a haircut and hair coloring that hadn't been done for 33 weeks according to the last instagram "new hair!" selfie. One I'd avoided scheduling because history shows that the minute I schedule any appointment for my hair I become emotionally obsessive about everything that's wrong about it. For the 2-4 weeks I have to wait post-schedule, there's nothing that can ever go right with my style, it takes too long to dry, it's too light, too dry, too something.

Oh, and way too many split ends to get distracted by. There's always another.

This made me think about other errands and "things" I'm currently putting off because I'm lazy or something.

:: Fold the socks that have been occupying my pool table for longer than I care to admit.
:: Actually donate the clothes I long ago sorted into the "donate" piles.
:: Restore clothes with holes and missing buttons that prevent me from wearing them.
:: Pick up my undergraduate degree paperwork from college (Graduated in 2009).
:: Update my resume and cover letter.
:: Find, organize and use outstanding gift cards. Free money.
:: Understand how my DSLR remote works (and use it). Currently wasted money.
:: Om at Home more often (thanks, Alyssa)

Oh yeah, here's my hair since this is the only after-salon shot I was able to get before getting sweaty. Sweaty was either from a workout or a crazy sunny day in Portland, you decide!


Pardon the obvious snapchat AND the obvious car-selfie.

Are you confessing today with Melissa?

Love the hair, lady! It looks fabulous! :)!

I have a list of things I'm too lazy to get done, too. It's annoying when i think about it because some are so easy, but then they are so easy to forget.

The hair looks great and my list of things to do it soooo long- too long!

Your hair looks gorgeous and so do you, duh. And when you get around to doing the buttons, can you please remind me that I have to replace the most important button on my favorite winter coat before it's suddenly winter again and I'm hating Past Alyssa for just putting it into storage and promising to do it before winter 2015? Thanks.

Love it, you look gorgeous! And I totally do the "I hate my hair, it can do nothing right" thing once I decide to get it cut.

Love the hair!!! :) I have a list of things that I should be doing but never do and they just keep getting transferred from goal list to goal list. Oops.

I am terrible about scheduling haircuts. My last one was in July. YUP! That's how lazy I am- eek!!!

Melissa Nicole said...

Em said...

Omg stop looking so gorgeous. GAWD. Anyway, I always wait until my hair looks absolutely awful complete with dead-ends all over the place until I get it done. Because well...no pants always wins haha.

Your hair is seriously gorgeous! I'm more of a major haircut once a year type, depending on how bad split ends are. I also just checked- my donation pile has been sitting there since last year. Definitely needs revamping and actually donating! I even have a (small) dry cleaning pile. Oops!

Love your hair, woman! I have to book hair appointments for the day that I decide to do something to my hair also, otherwise I go absolutely bonkers day after day.

I don't schedule haircuts...I just decide one day to get one and walk into Fantastic Sam's. That's what happened last month when I had the day off with my mom.

I have a love hate relationship with getting my hair done. I am always super excited to get something new done, but I dread getting it done because I am afraid that I will hate it. Luckily, I went and got my hair done and I loved it! Maybe I will post about it tomorrow ;D

Your hair looks awesome! So sleek and shiny!!!! *stars in eyes* I only get my hair cut about once a year. So gross to admit. And even worse is that Pete's mom is a hair stylist and cuts our hair for free. THAT'S how much I avoid it, lol
