    Temporarily Turquoise: Haircut & Loreal Colorista Spray

    After much hemming and hawing, I finally sport a haircut I’ve not sported in years! This is in fact the shortest hairstyle I’ve ever had, seeing as my sides are shaved with a #1 blade. It’s. So. Cooling. I was initially worried that shorter hair wouldn’t gel with most of my wardrobe, but this shoot alleviated my fears about having to undergo an overhaul. I’m gonna have to step up my makeup game for the girly-girl items though! Lookit this friendly cat!

    Ottie and I went on a date at the ArtScience Museum back in July to catch some futuristic exhibits – HUMAN+ The Future of Our Species, and The Universe and Art: An Artistic Voyage Through Space. Even though we originally met because of a mutual interest in Martial Arts movies, it turned out that we share an enjoyment of Sci-fi serials too – Futurama, Firefly, Farscape, Ghost in the Shell, The Expanse, Westworld, Rick & Morty, The Orville and the latest instalment of the Star Trek series (Discovery)… just to name a few. Although, our tastes diverge sometimes – he doesn’t share my enthusiasm for Almost Human and Sharknado, while I don’t care…
