My pink day

If there is anyone who understands my desire for pink hair it is my good friend Janine. She has the most awesome purple hair. The kids and I went to Klerksdorp to visit Janine and her family. The mission: to catch up with a great friend and to have my hair done with permanent pink rather than the wash out stuff I had been using to date. Her Aunty has a salon next to her house and they had ordered some special dye for me.

Well Mission accomplished. We had such a great trip, only pity was that it was just too short. Janine is one of my on line chat buddies who has become a real life best friend. She and her wonderful hubby and 2 beautiful girls made our stay so much fun.

Sitting up late, drinking sherry and chatting with a friend who loves you just the way you are and understands the need to be a little different is so precious. Life at the moment is anything but easy but it is people like Janine that carry you through.

So from 10am-3pm this is what I did

Blond highlights (the highlights that this pink is done on were put in at the beginning of May so my roots are in much need of help.)

I hate the way my nose wrikles up when I smile, I have been told it is cute – maybe it is in the eye of the beholder

A huge thanks to Janine for organising this for me and helping look after my kids during the day. And to Nicci at Salon Gigi thanks a million I totally love it!!!
