2014 Catch up

Wow, so I’ve not been very good with blogging about what’s been going on this year… so I thought I’d cram stuff into this post.  So…

April….

I’ve been dying my hair with only Henna for the last 10 or so years (as part of me trying to avoid chemicals and do things as naturally as possible)…. but I’ve always desperately wanted to have purple hair.  So since I’m also losing a lot of hair thanks to my PCOS… I thought I may as well take the opportunity to do something to my hair that I’ll enjoy, since its thinness was depressing.  So a friend bleached and dyed it for me.  Sadly because of all the henna in it, most of it wouldn’t bleach down light enough so the purple dye didn’t take well the first time around.  Giving me a weird “yay purple” virgin regrowth area and a “basically the same as it was before” everywhere else 😛  Still, some purple was better than none.

(excuse the “fresh from the shower” photo :P)

But then I redid it last month, it bleached down much lighter this time, and I finally got my purple hair!!!  Even if it still turned out 2-tone because the henna still didn’t completely come out… and I added some green for fun… which I think worked well to make it look like I planned to have 2 different colour purples in there 😀

(eww, I look horrible blonde!)

May….

We went to the screening of the Star Wars original Trilogy on May the 4th, which was a lot of fun!   Some people had dressed up.  I just had my Twi’lek hat that my friend Sam made me (which won me a Vader Lightsaber – WOOT!!!!)…  Now that I have my Assajj costume, if they do another screening this year, I may just have to dress up for that too!

July…

I did a 3 day intensive ATS (Tribal Bellydance) drilling class with Devi!

So that basically means dancing from 9am – 5pm almost non-stop for 3 days.  Sooooooo tiring….. sooooo Amazingly worth it!!!

August….

For Book Week MiniObsi wanted to go as something from Alice in Wonderland (her group of friends were all doing different characters from the book)… so we decided on a card.

October….

My Star Wars book collection is coming along nicely 🙂

We went to Apollo Bay for a long weekend away to celebrate my Father-in-law’s birthday.  I was tasked with making the cake, which I’d intended to do a family tree theme.  Had a bit of a problem with the mud cakes I made (they turned out too gooey), so that ruined my plans and I had to run out and grab last minute cakes from coles 😦

But I bought a leaf mold and made dozens of little leaves to decorate it.  I couldn’t decide on light or dark green, so I bought both and then blended the 2 to make some mottled and medium coloured ones.  For one cake I traced the tree design on baking paper with melted chocolate, and then when it was set I peeled it off and put it on the cake.  But it cracked a lot, so for the second one I just freehand drew the tree on.

For the WISH (Women in Solidarity with Hijabis) campaign, I wore a hijab for a week.  I really like the look – I’ve always found them to be so elegant and lovely.

We had an “Undead Bride” type Halloween themed dance performance which was a lot of fun.  I needed to make a white/cream outfit, so that was a bit of scouring op shops for bits and pieces!
