I’ve done many, many colors since 2008, when I added pink streaks to my hair for the first time. I’ve had base colors from dark brown to platinum blonde, and highlights from aubergine purple to cotton candy pink.

Holidailies 2014 #06: Traces of Tinsel

Excerpt from Today’s Show:

I’ve decided to embrace my 2005 philosophy about them, and, instead of wondering exactly where these silvery strings are coming from, interpret them as fond messages from my uncle, my grandparents, my friend the WarriorPoet.

20140921 – Sunday Brunch: Welcome Autumn

Excerpt from Today’s Show:

The summer wreath on my front door will be replaced by something involving dried leaves, multicolored corn, and brilliantly-colored sunflowers. The dining table will play host to a bowl of knotty, knobby gourds. I will change out the placemats, and gradually bring my autumn and Halloween pieces into the house – a pumpkin here, a votive holder shaped like a haunted forest there.
