Emerald Dream and Brilliant Bluem

Two new members of the "Itty Bitty Flexi-8 Committee" arrived yesterday! I already have Emerald Dream in size L and Brilliant Bluem in size XL, and I love both of them. When I saw that Emerald Dream suddenly was available on LillaRose again, I knew that I needed a tiny one for half-ups. Both of these are in XS. Sadly I didn't get action pictures, because my camera ran out of battery.

Messy bun and other things

Smashed my hair into a big, messy bun and clamped it down with two Ficcares today. I had to put it up somehow, and I ended up with this. It's very comfortable, and I'll definitely try to recreate it tomorrow. 

In other news, I only have one week left of my nursing home internship! Can't believe I'm almost done, these last 7 weeks have gone incredibly fast. I've learned a lot and I've had so much fun there. I'm a bit sad that this is my last week, but at the same time, it's going to be great to get back to school after the easter break. I'm ready to do some hardcore studying to prepare for my exam in june. June is still far away, but I have two enormous books about diseases and medical conditions that I need to read and learn, and I also have a ton of other assignments and projects at school. I think I'll be pretty exhausted by the time this semester is over.

I finally broke down and bought a Pearlized Caramel clip from cultmate.de. I've wanted one for ages, because I love the colour and swirly pattern. It's not as warm and orange-ish as it looks in the pictures on cultmate, but still very pretty. I really want a Dark Topaz Jewel too, but that will have to wait. I also have to say that I'm incredibly impressed with how fast this clip arrived. I bought it last tuesday, and it was here on saturday! Cultmate is awesome =D

Daylight, no flash.
I call this "the peanut butter jelly bun" =D

Big chop

I finally cut my hair! My original plan was to wait until Easter break, but then I changed my mind. I cut off 30-35 cm in the end of February, and I love it. I'm now back to around waist-hip with layers and a U-hemline. My hair feels great, so silky and soft, and it's super-easy to detangle. I wear half-ups a lot, and only bun when I'm at work. Bunning is a bit of an issue due to the thickness of my hair, but I usually manage to get it up somehow. I love my Ficcares, because that's pretty much the only clip that can keep my hair in place. I also use a lot of bobby pins, and I have to keep some in my purse or pocket, just in case my updo explodes =P

A few hours after the cut, hair slightly wet.

The day after, combed out and very fluffy.
