Cloche, but no cigar

November 19, 2012

I cut off my hair! It's been coming for a while now, I tried to get a free haircut but after that fell through I
resorted to cutting it off myself. It's a little uneven but it's pretty good. I was going  to try a shorter, Louise Brooks style cut but I figured I couldn't get that to look good on my own. And actually I like this better. I use less shampoo and my hair is drying much faster than before. Overall, I'm very happy. Though, watch this space for when I regret it all.

Also, I thought the haircut looked great with my little orange hat. It's not so great in the wind because it flies off but so do many of my hats. Also, in the top photo you can see the inside of my room, with my map of Paris (that I found in the rubbish on a Kensington street), owl drawings (from oxfam), and my ship (birthday present last year). I've also included a couple of paintings I thrifted this week. One of a camera cover and bag, and another of two girls at a piano.

And to continue on from the bad pun in the title, no cigar but a pipe...
