Please excuse the unsubtle potatoshopping. I wore this to a cocktail night we were hosting, so I didn’t get ready til the evening. It gets dark at 3.45 now, so photos in artificial light it was. I did try and make the original photo look acceptable by upping saturation and contrast etc, but it still looked pretty rubbish. So I embraced the artifice and desaturated the background. I quite like it actually, but will admit it looks pretty amateurish. It won’t happen again (hopefully).
For my hair, I tried and failed to do pincurls. I sprayed them with Toni and Guy beach curls spray before pinning. Not such a great idea. The spray gives lots of hold, so when I took out the pins, the curls stayed up, just jutting out slightly in a Sideshow Bob way. When I brushed them down to release them, I ended up with an massive head of frizz. One of the good things about having fine greasy hair is that frizz isn’t really an issue for me, so this was a novel experience. I should have taken a picture, it looked mental. In the end I just ended up brushing for ages, spraying with leave in conditioner, and pinning the top part down. It looked ok, if not very pin curlish.

In other news, we had a little handknit monkey called Cheeky Wee visiting for the weekend (long story). He can party with the best of them!
Dave had to go to work on Sunday, and Cheeky Wee came with him:
p.s Happy thanksgiving to anyone that is celebrating it!
