Hey everyone, hope you’re all ok! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you’ll know I’m an Aussie Angel for the lusciously light campaign and we had to choose from two challenges – lighter self and lighter style. I chose lighter style which meant I’ve been lucky enough to be getting sent wigs from the lovely Aussie themselves. I’ve been meaning to do this post for so long now, but I’m actually glad I waited ’til now, because I’ve got two different style to show you!
Aussie really wanted us to embrace these different styles so to see how I felt about them in different places and in different company, I’ve actually left the house looking like this! It really did take some courage, but I’ve worn a wig to a friends BBQ, when doing gardening, to the supermarket, dog-walking, out driving and just around the house when friends and family have been over! I did get some laughs, but I’m glad I did it – I think there’s probably some pictures floating around so I’ll track them down and post them at a later date.
What do you all think? I like the way the dark colour makes me look ‘english rose’ pale, as opposed to just a bit washed out and in need of some fake tan (which is tonights job, by the way..). I’m not too crazy on all the frizzy curls, it took me a while to tame them in to submission with the help of a leopard print headband you can only just make out in these pictures. I think it would be quite nice having short hair again (A couple of years ago I had my hair cut in to a cute little bob) but ever since I had it cut off I’ve lusted after gorgeous long locks and it’s finally getting there so I don’t think I’d be brave enough to hack it all off again.
This wig is so different to my normal hair! I like to call it my Pamela Anderson wig. What I liked about it is that it made me feel really bright and perhaps more outgoing (possible?), probably because I look completely different in it. I’m not keen at all on all the flicky layers, but I do think the hair brings out the colour of my eyes a bit! This is the wig that got the most laughs from my friends, especially when I turned up at a BBQ in it – gave them all a laugh! It would be very adventurous to go blonde, but I’m not really won over by the idea of all the bleaching, ruins your hair, I’m sure! Hmm, what do you think?
What else? Well, I know I’m doing the lighter style challenge and loving it, but I thought to myself – why not also try out aspects of the lighter self challenge too? I’m really quite unfit and unhealthy, so I’ve just started doing the 30 day shred work out to try and be a bit healthier! The other thing I’ve done is de-clutter my dressing room which is a massive thing for me! There was always massive heaps of clothes all over the floor as I had no room to hang anything up because of having so many clothes, so I went through everything, took bags and bags of stuff to the charity shop (good karma too, right?) and then had a good tidy up. Here’s a snapshot of the uber tidy finished result!
So that’s my lighter style (with aspects of lighter self) journey so far! Let me know what you think of the styles – I have my hair appointment in just over a week and I’m still stuck about what to have done! I’m thinking about either- Really dark brown, Ombre or maybe even a bit lighter. Opinions please, they’re urgently needed! Can’t wait to hear what you all think
