Thinking & Feeling

Taking DIY too far!

I have reached new depths of frugalness. I have recently started cutting my own hair!

It was well below my shoulders in December and I decided it needed a slight trim. Who needs to pay R100s for that, right? So I snipped away and hey presto it was ok... ish. Since then I keep finding little bits that need a trim and then I snip and then find more (not my hair was actually layered before) and then I find more. It has now got to the point that I'll find a piece at work and grab my scissors. Much to the amusement/horror of the guys I work with. It's become a joke. But it's like I ca;t stop now, because I always think I am so close to getting it right.

It is now well above my shoulders and I think I need to stop, and/or go fro a proper hair cut!

I have decided that for my birthday in April, I will have to get my hair fixed properly and maybe go for a couple of treatments at that awesome SPA I had the voucher for. (Our HR lady has even managed to get us a 10% discount there now too.) Or at the very least I'll go to the oral hygienist. I really think I need to look after myself better.

I still can't and don't want to spend fortunes on all this stuff which seems unnecessary and even wasteful. But I don't think I need to be quite so puritanical either.

  1. Oh gosh, I really do not know how you cut your own hair? Go, do it for yourself.
