1) When staying with friends and/or family, remember to open bathroom cabinet doors and drawers slowly and don't reach in immediately. This is Hawai'i and you never know what kind of creepy crawly might be waiting to exit said cabinet. Especially if said cabinet has not been opened in while! (Luckily this has not been an issue for me--yet.)
2) Why do I bother to blow dry and style my hair like I would at home in LA? As the tradewinds and humidity take their toll, it's as if I just stepped out of the shower and let it air dry anyway...!! I forget how much wave I have in my hair until I get home!
My hair stylist will be cranky with me but with heavy desire to return to all blonde and no budget, I went to the drug store and bought me a box-o-blonde. I wussed out and didn't get straight up bleach, so I got a strawberry blonde result. I'll give it two weeks to settle then go get the bleach.
My eyes? Well, they are sorta green but I tweaked the color in iphoto and blammo, super green eyes.
I live in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2006 I worked in Mexico City. Instead of sending out giant emails full of photos to friends and families, I started this blog. The summer turned out to be a crazy one and this blog and my camera kept me sane. I didn't want to stop observing and writing when I got home to LA, so I kept the blog going.
