The Joys of Pregnancy Hair

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILARY

& Happy October everyone! 

Well, it’s no secret that I am 4 months pregnant! woot woot! Month three rocked (& a bit of writing about the first trimester is yet to come). But the changes that have come with month four include some mega affects on my  hair. I swear by the pricey and totally worth it CHI conditioning treatment that my stylish gucci-loving stylist performs quaterly… but you can’t use harsh chemicals when you are knocked up. I envision myself as even more organic while pregnant ~so am open to trying new things. Fast forward to home problem solving some seriously knotted, half fuzzed out, half straight, dried out red, hair. I googled and yahoo’d my way through some hilarious home kitchen remedy hair conditioners, one hormonal weekend night.

So… I gave the ol avocado and mayo treatment a whirl. See photo above for ingredients. It’s  a fairly straight forward process of mix em all together and lather on. I lathered from root to tip and put a plastic bag over my head for an hour. My husband was agasp and as usual, humoured  my creativity. After an hour I rinsed the messy, stinky, clumpy bits of greeen out in the tub. Then shampoo’d. Results? Nothing really, meh. My hair was soft but smelled like breakfast foods. Save your mayo for the sandwiches you’ll want in months 4-6 ladies. And please don’t tell my stylist I tried this at home!

The positive to this omelette hair DIY? I discovered LUSH in Vancouver a few months ago. During the holy shit I smell even after showering hormonal body odour stage. They saved me and my marriage with their sold deo. I  have a new love for my pits now. So.. I looked online, on another night of low hair self esteem. I splurged with my Sin-tax monies. They have a Therapy (lol) massage bar for growing bellies that might just take me out of the running for developing stretch marks (fingers crossed). So I ordered two bars.

I also ordered a hair conditionng treatment black pot, I think called Jazmin & Henna Hair Fluff Eaze? I placed my order online, paid $6 for UPS delivery and it was on my doorstep when I got home.. TWO DAYS LATER! YEAH LUSH. Now to try it this weekend. I’ll keep you posted. click here for the LUSH website for ordering

new catagory..”photography from my commute to work”

I found myself using my ferry commute to work as an opportunity for creative expression for my BLOG. However, most of what I found mysef writing was judgemental about hippies etc…and not very pretty. When I open my eyes up during my commute, which can be very helpful while driving…  I see a LOT of beauty. It is, in fact, the reason I moved back to the coast, almost 2 years ago. So without further a dew.. (ado?) here is a new photography catagory for your viewing pleasure. It will be found down the side column with the other catagories on my blog & photos can be enlarged or saved by double clicking on them.

Make Something Every Day

upside down converted boat sheds. brilliant.

I found this at greendiary.com awesome. check it out. Found object beach art at it’s best!

 

Boats are not mere bread earners to the fishermen, they are things that take them down memory lane, reminding of memorable experiences in the waters. So, I see no reason why they should allow their old friends to become a heap of waste. A bunch of fishermen in Lindisfarne have thrown new life into their old boats by converting them into storage sheds. They simply turned them upside down and made a small door to enter inside. I am sure those of you who own boats will not be able to stop yourself from doing the same.
