I’m on a little blogging vacation right now. Once per season, I like to take a week off from life, which basically means I like to spend seven days in bed watching Netflix so I can emerge, like a butterfly, back into the world as my fabulous self. I decided that instead of abandoning my blog completely, I’m going to do “reruns” of two of my favorite posts from over the summer. Here’s the first, originally posted on June 11.
I’m on a mission.
As much as I hate Cersei Lannister, girl’s hair game is strong. Sometimes when I’m watching GoT, I get a little mesmerized by those perfect blonde waves. While I know it’s just a carefully groomed wig, I’m a little jealous. I want Cersei hair.
I think, though, that I might be on to something. I was looking up curling tutorials using a straightener–I don’t own a curling iron–and I stumbled upon one that has a lot of promise. Maybe once I really get the hang of it, I can drum up a tutorial of my own. I’ve actually been meaning to do ones for some of my hairstyles, like that hairband bun and the milkmaid braids.
Anyway, the rest of the look is decidedly un-Cersei: all cheery apples and smiles. How could anyone possibly dream up awful plots in such a cutesy dress? Hell, this thing put me in such a good mood that I didn’t even get angry in traffic coming home. (Although I might have gotten a little annoyed with Moxie’s post-walk decision to lay down ten feet from my car and refuse to budge until I picked her up–all 50 lbs. of her.)
