In readiness for a photoshoot I’ve decided to go platinum blonde, rather than the more yellow blonde I was previously.
This involved re-bleaching, although not for too long – a fact I’m thankful for as the bleach really felt hot and burny on the back of my head (indeed, the price of going blonde is mild chemical burns!)
Here was my first colour – done at the end of December
…and here’s the after pic… taken yesterday
It’s much less yellow than before and looks very natural compared to the sides of my beard. Belinda has mentioned that darkening my beard would work, but I prefer the salt and pepper look.
I always think it’s a bit of a let-down after the high point of Christmas Day. Yesterday, however, I rather enjoyed it – I think because I did things!
Rather than laze around the house all day doing nothing I decided to go to the unit, then walk on to Retail World… Supposedly to avoid the traffic.
That was a silly idea! The traffic was ridiculously quiet. I couldn’t believe there were spaces all through retail world.
So, I bought Hannah some kitchen scales (she sent me… I came back with the most expensive – I always do), and I got myself a genuine Samsung dual wireless charger. After previous cheap chargers and wasting money on ones which wouldn’t charge my watch even though they claimed to be Qi chargers I decided to just get the real deal.
It has to be said my outfit today was pretty outrageous too…
The t-shirt was a present from Hannah. In case you don’t know anything about it, it’s a Jim’ll Paint It of the Chuckle Brothers doing the Hello head in the style of Ghost. It’s a real old mix and match of pop culture references.
The trousers are quite striking too. They’re silver, extremely slim fitting, and I can’t believe I can actually get into them. It is testament to how much weight I’ve lost really!
They’re a 36″ waist, for the record, and the t-shirt is an XL.
Now it’s important not to go back to my old ways this Christmas, and to get plenty of exercise!
