@ehBeth,
It's been crazy. Started early this year with tons of freezing rain at the beginning of the month and now it's all snow. We just got over a foot of the white stuff Sunday and it's still snowing today.
They say rain for tomorrow, which sucks of course.
You guys are getting a lot of the white stuff too, eh?
Thank god I no longer have to travel that long stretch to work anymore. I almost met the ditch a few times heading to work and that's enough for me.
My nerves just aren't what they use to be.

Hugs

Today's colour whim

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41dEY9F%2BdUL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

In early December Maddy added chocolate stripes to the red thing I had going on. Bit of an emergency - couldn't wait til next week to see Maddy - so I hopped up - looked into the colour cupboard - picked Ruby Rush from the Power Reds line - hehehehe - it is literally brilliant Very Happy

@ehBeth,
Oh that seems such a nice color. My hair is currently red, and in between
hair appointments, this would be a great fill-in.

@CalamityJane,
These deep reds are turning out to be as addictive as tattoos or Scharffenberger.

@ehBeth,
I haven't tried the Scharffen Berger chocolates, but if you're saying they're
addictive, then I won't even attempt it....I am a chocoholic as it is already!

@CalamityJane,
YOU haven't tried Scharffen Berger? <thud>

I picked some of the http://www.artisanconfection.com/images/3ozbars.jpg mmm 41%, 62%, 70% and 82% today. They were on sale for $1 for a 3 oz. bar - usually close to $6 per here. One bar will last me a month - I'll savour each little segment.

@ehBeth,
Ooh Bethie, awesome.

The reddest I've gone has been kinda an overdone strawberry. It was, well, it didn't go too well with my coloring. My skin is more golden (read: sallow) so blonde works and probably medium browns would work but anything redder than some highlighting or blonde shading into strawberry and I, I dunno, I look like I just came in off the boat.

@jespah,
Really jespah? I actually can picture you in a Lucille Ball hair color.

ehbeth, you have a bar of chocolate for a month? Shocked
If I haven't eaten it already in the car home from the store, it sure won't
last any longer than half a day in the house. As I said, I am a chocoholic,
and if I buy a bar, it's gone within minutes. I never will be a sensible
chocolate eater!

Oh my jespah, look at you. You've changed so much that is your facial features.
You look great! You're right though, strawberry blond would not be your color,
if at all then more honey colored - similar to Eva Mendez has her coloring.

@CalamityJane,
Thank you! I have a little trouble recognizing myself. My face was moon-shaped forever, even when I was thin. I never really had angles before, just once, and I'm maybe 80 lbs. heavier than when I last had an angular face. It's weird. Not bad, just odd. Wink

@jespah,
Yes, you have very defined cheek bones, just like the eastern Europeans have.
What's your ancestral background?

@CalamityJane,
On my father's side, Romanian and Austro-Hungarian, with possibly some Spanish (might be some Sephardic, it seems to follow from a name more an anyone's memory). On my mother's side, Polish, Romanian and I think Russian. A lot of these are places that changed hands many times.

well, I would have if Set weren't around. I like good chocolate, but I definitely savour it tiny piece by tiny piece.

@ehBeth,
I've gone back to my natural brown for a change (and like it)

@CalamityJane,
oooh, those Feria colours are sooo tempting - so rich, so deep, so scrumptious - and that one is particularly chocolatey

My natural colour is/was fairly close to this butternut thing - I still find it boring - don't know how long I'll be able to stick with it.

I still prefer the natural look.

@NickFun,
something like that happened to me once - when I tried to dye my hair dark brown

neither green nor dark brown turn out to be good hair colours for me
