Colors in your hair

26 Jun

I’ve had so much to blog about but so little time lately.  I’m getting ready to head down to the X-games this weekend to shoot some photos and check out all of the amazing-ness that it ensues.  This week, I’ve been trying to get my zen back and just decompress a little bit.  I’ve been working on sleeping at least 8 hours each night and working out after work.  It feels good to take a week to focus on my health and sleeping patterns 🙂

Last week, I had been contemplating putting some fun colors in my hair.  I’ve been seeing them in people’s hair for a while now and never thought it’d go well in my hair but a co-worker/friend of mine had some great colors that she had in her hair.  After asking her about it, she explained the dye (Manic Panic) and how easy it was to put in.  I was curious and sold at this point so she let me borrow her blue and purple.  It will wash out in 10-20 washes so it’s not permanent.  Sounded like the perfect chance to try.  If you’re thinking about it, this is the perfect option because you don’t have to worry about it being stuck on there forever if you don’t like it.  I also intertwined it in the under pieces of my hair so that when I tuck it back, it’s only noticeable in the ends.

The return of Travel Thursdays with Venice Beach!

19 Jan

I stopped doing Travel Thursdays for a while because although I’ve seen a some cool places, a lot of my photos are so old!  I’ll continue to write about ones that are must-sees and current places though.  Here’s a post about my trip to the world famous Venice Beach last Sunday.  I had always heard just how extraordinary it was and I’d always seen it on TV and in movies so I figured I couldn’t miss seeing it.  It was truly something else.  I had to split this into two posts as well because there were so many interesting things to see in Venice Beach.  Here’s the first batch of photos, enjoy!

The art in Venice was one of my favorite things about the place.  Almost every building or wall is painted.

It was so cool, all you have to do is give the city a copy of your driver’s license and you can go tag the Venice walls in this beach area.  I loved watching people tag the walls and I LOVE the colors of good graffiti.

Hey I found my initials, at least I think 🙂

So much paint.

Even the trees?

Oh yeah and there’s an awesome skate park on the beach.  So cool to watch all the amazing skaters from toddlers to old guys hand planting.  Yes, that happened!

So cute!

A moment of calm.
