Hairspray, gimme gimme control!

On Saturday I woke up with a case of the
Mean Reds so, in hopes of combating this feeling, mum and I went out to lunch. I felt that a little deviation from my regular style was in order and gave myself a beehive. Besides my ponytail and faux bangs, this is the easiest style, that I do, to achieve. I put the back up in a messy French roll.

I would love to be able to do this kind of beehive, one day, when I can be bothered taking the time to learn how.

The day out cheered me up as did finding this book in an RSPCA thrift shop.

Raymond Chandler has certainly become one of my favourite authors over the past year, even if I've only read two of his books to date. I plan on scanning the front and back covers of this one so I can print them out, again, and frame them for my wall.

In keeping with a 1960s theme, I Mad Men'd myself! (And made myself a Mad Men boyfriend, too, and stuck us together in photoshop).


It's really far too much fun.

  1. What an awesome hairdo! You did a fantastic job with it. In fact, you look like an extra off the set of "Mad Men." That's a great collage... I should have given myself a Mad Men boyfriend for my drunk picnic.

  2. Ok, I'm jealous; that is a very cute hairstyle. I can't seem to get ribbons to stay in my hair. They just slide right out. What's your secret?

  3. Your hairstyle is so adorable, you say it's easy to do but it doesn't look it ;)
    I hate the Mean Reds. Hope your cute hairstyle helped.

  4. I Mad Men'd myself this morning, isn't it fun!? I didn't even think to make a man along with my character. Great hair! :)

  5. your bee hive is perfect, i love the ribbon!

  6. That MadMen character generator is too fun for words! I discovered it a little earlier tonight though my friend Sher's blog, and instantly morphed myself into a new Sterling Cooper office gal. I picked the exact same pink dress and hair style (different colour) - talk about great vintage minds thinking (dressing?) alike! :D

    Tons of hugs, my fellow virtual MM character,

  7. Catherine: Hee, thank-you! =D Well, I decided that it was the only way I was going to get a boyfriend. ;]
    Nancy: Aw, thank-you. I just tie it around my head and it stays! Maybe some bobby pins would help?
    Lizzy: Thanks, doll. With a little bit of practice it's actually quite simple!
    Gina: Thank-you. =] I want to Mad Men myself over and over! Haha.
    Hannah: Thanks, hun. =]
    Jessica: It's such fun! Oh, that's neat we picked the same dress and hair!


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
