Friday's Feast #2

What is the weather like today where you live?
Beautiful early autumn. The leaves are still dark green, the sky is still bright, but there's a chill in the air - the good kind. It makes me want to take long walks and eat everything in site, LOL.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how career-minded are you?
Right now, I'd say 8. I hate my job and IT sometimes. But it's a necessary evil, how do you think you can use the internet at work? It's jobs like mine that make sure you can watch YouTube while you try to stay awake at work or school, heehee.

What type of window coverings do you have in your home? Blinds, curtains, shutters, etc.?
Very ugly reddish purple air force-issued curtains that are too long for the bay window in the living room. But we're least the neighbors can't spy on us like I do to them!

Main Course
Name something that instantly cheers you up.
E-mails from family members. Calls from old friends. NEW MAKEUP (how vain!).

How many times do you hit the snooze button on a typical morning?
Only once, if at all. I'm on a real time budget in the mornings, I HAVE to be on the train by 7:16 a.m. or I'll be late to work!

This weekend I plan on...
- Cleaning the living room and attic. I need more storage space, so I'm going to be a man and create more space, dammnit!
- Separate the clothes I'm going to keep and give away/sell.
- Post a FOTD/EOTD. I have a lot of new makeup from Smashbox, Estee Lauder and MAC :)
- Make the Korean seaweed soup (miyuk gook) that Alyssa did a post on HERE.
- Call my mother.

hey girl! thanks

i would love to see how ur hair looks like so it gives me a better idea of how i can give u tips on volume.

But what i would do is after u wash it, spray some root booster and mouse in there before u blow it dry.
Make sure u blow dry each section one at a time, I do my bottom first and pin the rest up this i blow dry close to my neck since we dont need volume there, then my second layer and this we blow dry while rotating your round brush to give it that volume. the last part of the hair, will get the most volume. You will need to blow dry it whiling rotating the round brush towards your face, every part u get done, u can comb it back to its part.
after all the hair is blow dried, i use a pomade to help set the hair down. after that i usually use a flat iron to tame any hair peice i dont want much volume in.
then hair spray does the final touch.

I should like do a video to show it maybe its easier hahah.
i hope that helps!

Aww, Lakahna, thank you for the tips! I will post a pic of the newer 'do this weekend, and you can break it down for me again? Hehe. I actually got the Japanese thermal straightening process done again (for like, the umpteenth time!) which may be contributing to the lack of volume. It's been really easy to get out of bed and go though! I hate to admit...I kinda miss my longer hair...but I think I look better w/short hair, and it suits my lifestyle...oooh i hate getting old, LOL.
