Wax on, wax off

For quite some time, I've been entertaining the idea of getting ombre tresses, but not sure if it's really "me".  My solution: Color.Bug.  Basically, it's make-up for your hair.  I love how this awesome little pod of color can turn my boring long locks into something rad and eye catching, without the commitment.  It will only last until I was it out.  Yay!

I've been wanting a pair waxed denim jeans (I may just DIY my own), but haven't found a pair that I fancied, however I did find this awesome waxed-effect vest.  Current want, fulfilled.  Double Yay!

Love the hair! What is this amazing product? I remember playing with those colour hairsprays back when I was a kid, but the colours were always really tacky. Yours looks really good.

Heidi said...

H Sharon, I like your style and I always follow your blog :)))
I just have a question, how are you so confident when you're on the fuller side? I'd like to learn that :(

Kristy said...

Holly molly, that purple dye looks really good on ya! :D I'm like you, I've been wanting to try the ombre hair do but not sure if that look is me. Was that hard to "wipe off" ? :)

LOVE the hair! I so wish I could get a lock of hair dyed in a crazy colour, but working in an office does have it's downfalls.

I'm looking to DIY waxed jeans as well, but I have a feeling yours will turn out much better ;)

Happy Valentines m'dear! x

What a cool solution! I also kind of want dyed tips but I'm not going to do it because after years and years of hair-abuse it's finally healthy again. I should really look into this stuff.

holy hair synchronization again, girl! i'm going to ombre my hair this week, although now i'm having second thoughts. i'll probably still do it though as i have a hair salon GC that's gonna expire soon, so might as well. hope it works out O.O

I LOVE this outfit! I am obsessed with mint pants - trying to find the perfect pair! And your hair is awesome! Thanks so much for your sweet comment :) And you are so lucky you live in the pacific - I'm freezing my tush off over here in Ohio!

Hey doll! Long time no chat. Love, love, love this outfit. And I actually like your temp ombre job. I had ombre too until I chopped off my hair. And to tell you the truth, I LOVED ombre hair. You get it done once and don't have to touch it up for 4-5 months later. Much easier up-keep than regular highlights. Just make sure to find a really good hairstylist who's got the ombre technique down.
Anyway, lookin good. Love this entire outfit. And I loved that video. May just have to diy some wax jeans also. Hope all is well! And sorry for the novel.
