Hair Colour and beach fun!


Well i decided it was about time to do something different with my hair, and in the past i have either done a drastic cut or a darker colour. But this time i wanted to do something i haven't done before, which is get my hair done lighter. So i booked it in with my hair dresser, and on Saturday i went and got a full head of foils, i got my ends lightened and some natural streaks put through it. It took a really long time, and was quite expensive (but i used my bonus from work - so it wasn't that bad). And after 3 hours, and a re-do (colour wasnt noticable enough) We had a nice result, i think i really do like it, and perhaps next time i will go a little lighter, and more blonde, rather than caramel. But it's quite damaging on your hair, so its not something i will do often :)

But here are some pics of my new hair colour (i also got a trim, so it look better when i curl it);



This is what my hair looked like before;


So yeah i really like it - and i have to make sure i look after my hair now. Will need to make sure i condition it often so it doesn't get too dry.

Well since Saturday was filled up with getting my hair done and cleaning, on Sunday after Church husby and I went with some friends to the beach (as it was still 28 degrees outside even at 4pm) Here is a pic from the Beach (we went to Raglan)



Better get back to work now (breaks over)

Artworks and Sauce


Well i know it was been a while since i have done any artworks or designs. To be honest, life has been busy and i have been just a bit overwhelmed with life. So many different things going on. But today was a good friends 30th. And i decided it was a about time i do something creative. I normally always make my own cards - but i decided to do something more special with this one. I decided to do a cut-out card and make a collage to go behind it. It turned out really cool, and i think i will use this technique again :)

Here are some pictures;








So that was really fun and colourful. Next i made a present for them (Same birthday) and i am still not full of ideas at the moment, but i found this really cool drawing on Pinterest, and i was going to make something that was a little more original, but with my busy day making sauce (pics at the bottom) I decided to make my own version of their artwork. To be honest it ended up being more a copy - as i really didnt have any time nor patience to make it my own. But here is what i ended up with; (note: i'm not taking any ownership of the design - i just thought it was really fab)




Well while doing that paintng i was also making Tomato Sauce with all my many many Tomatoes. So here are some pictures of all the tomatoes and Bottles etc;



This is 5.4Kgs of Tomatoes :)




Well this is all for now :)

Till next time.

Pasta making!

Well last night (even though it was Friday and I was pretty tired) I decided to finally use my Pasta maker that my brother got me at Christmas.  It was a lot easier than I thought... and it treated amazing! We ended up having it with roasted chicken that was pulled apart and a alfredo sauce,  and dad made this courgette and onion dose dish which was super yum too! 

Here are some pictures;
