First Time Under the Foil!

So, I decided to lavender-ize my hair. I have been wanting to do it since early spring at the very least, and so since I  1)remembered, 2) had money, 3)had free time and 4) was motivated all on the same day, I headed over to Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. Paulina did the coloring and she was fantastic. It turned out purple indeed, so as it fades out I will probably love it even more! I do like the result a lot though. Side note: This is the first time I have ever done any sort of color treatment to my hair ever. And I mean ever.

New Orange Jacket

This is what I wore last night to dinner with a friend. We went to O’Gara’s, a pub in St. Paul. It was a bit greasy, but the fries were good. It has a lot of Irish-Minnesota history and character to it, which adds something to the experience.

I love wearing my new orange jacket. I think as a Minnesotan, outerwear available in stores here is usually much too boring for me. Hence my purchase of this side-zip jacket. I like pairing it with my pink Doc Martens rubber-soled wedges (my favorite shoe purchase of 2012 so far).

First photo I tried to take of myself is below, but it wasn’t working out too well so my photographer jumped in (aka my roommate).

Thanksgiving update: My first two pumpkin pies of my baking life just popped out of the oven. I am super proud, even though the recipe was just from the side of a pumpkin can and I don’t  even know yet if they turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
