The Current Look

So I did the curls....

My hair didn't quite turn out like I wanted, but I was able to do something like a rocker-esque look with it and it came out pretty cute. Better than I expected. See for yourself...

Freshly done


A little sweated out


Last night

What do you think? I may keep this style for a while, considering I really don't have to do anything to my hair. I'm sure this probably isn't considered a "protective style" but for now I think it'll do.

Oh yeah, a few growth pix as well (from about two weeks ago):

I'm going to try something different...

Next Saturday I'm going to this big Christmas extravaganza that one of my organizations puts on every year. It's a rare time when I get all jazzy and whatnot, and this year is no exception. I'm gonna abandon my signature straight hair and go for something a little lot more curly. Everyone who knows me knows that in the past I have despised curls... but I think its just because they never come out how I expect them to. Hopefully that will not be the case this time. (Oh, this could be the Christmas miracle to transform me from the Grinch to... ummmm, whatever the opposite of the Grinch is... Santa?)


Aaaaanyway, here is the look I'll be going for. This is absolutely gorgeous on her! If I can get something similar to happen, I'll post a pic... If not, we'll act like this whole post never happened...

The Return of the Girly-Girl

*We interrupt our regularly scheduled hair blog for this important announcement*

It is time for my girly side to make her re-entry into the world. The Tori D. who always had the perfect outfit, wore a signature shade of lipstick and was rarely caught in flats doesn't come out that much. She peeks her head out every now and then, but she's become a bit of a recluse over the last year or so. A couple of things are to blame for this. There is the fact that I get up ridiculously early for work, so I sleep until the very last minute & then rush out of the door. There is also the issue of there not being ANY attractive, available men at work or in class. Plus, the extra pounds that make dressing well a lot more expensive were a bit of a blow to her ego too. Although I'm far from a slob (never that, even on my worst days!), I have kinda forced my prissy side into hiding.

But I think I can coax her out... With this...
I caught myself drooling over this eyeshadow palette and knew that my inner girly-girl was crying "Give us free!" I've never even been much of a makeup person (other than a little foundation every now and then and a lil lipstick) but this makes me wanna change my ways. So I've decided to step my game up as far as my appearance. Heck, I'm changing up and trying new things in just about every other aspect of my life; why not this?
All that to say, as I go through my transition with my hair, you'll also see me transitioning back into the priss I used to be (that is, if I can pull it off correctly!)
