So you know how sometimes you have something you want to look nice for, but you have no money to invest in said niceness? Well, that's me right now. I have some stuff coming up that requires adorableness, but the money isn't in our bank account to go get the needed things done. Things like my eyebrows, hair and nails. So, being the constant optimist, I decided there was no need to worry, I could do these tasks myself!
I went to the store to pick up some hair dye to cover the grey taking over my head. Even though I am 31, I still like to consider myself a person who has early grey. "What? This? These millions of grey hairs? Oh...I am an early greyer...IT IS NOT BECAUSE I AM OLD." Anyway, due to my early greying ways I needed to just do an all over color. They didn't have the color I usually use, so I went with the same brand, but one called "Medium Brown". The girl on the box had some nice hair. I figured it would be fine. (Constant Optimist!)
I get home, put Henry down for his nap, and get to work. I put on the hair color and set the timer for 10 minutes. I then break out the wax to do my brows. And maybe my lip. Not that I would admit to waxing my lip, because that sounds like something older people have to do...and I am an EARLY GREYER. So...I waxed ONLY my eyebrows, then checked the time. Only six minutes had passed. Not too shabby! But then I look in the mirror. And my hair looks dark. Really dark. And I decide six minutes is plenty. I wash it out and here is what I see...
Someone needs to tell Clairol to change the name of this color from "Medium Brown" to "Witch Black"! Come on people. This is after SIX MINUTES. And it actually looks darker in real life. AND my early grey is still showing through because I didn't leave it on the full time. FAIL. Just FAIL all around.
In other news, my nails look very lovely, and I like how I DO like that I sorta look skinny in this picture. Maybe people will be too distracted by my nails and eye brows to notice my witch black hair.
PS. I do own other tshirts. I promise. Somehow I just always seem to be wearing this one when I take pictures of myself in the bathroom mirror. Odd. But since this time I am comparing myself to a witch, it works out rather well.
