Riding the Wave...

 
This weekend was perfection. Reading books along the harbour, dinner with friends and even a nana nap or two. Since the sun was shining on Saturday we took full advantage of the good weather and began to clean out the apartment - we're moving in a few weeks but more on that later...
We treated ourselves to a lazy Sunday and since I lost the laptop war, we lounged in bed watching the live feed of the Hurley Pro surf competition. Growing up by the beach, my man is an avid surfer, something I still can't say about myself. I did, however, manage to have my own surf experience this weekend but it didn't involve getting on a board.  Instead I managed to recreate that infamous scene from 'Something About Mary' when I stupidly decided to keep my fringe off my face by putting a big clump of surf hair wax all thought my hair.  


It was windy you see and I didn't want to bother with trying to tame the fringe - well ladies, hair wax does not come out easily.  In fact 10 washes later it still hasn't come out so as I type this my hair is wrapped in a potent mixture of baking soda, vinegar and olive oil -  yum!  Here's hoping that wash number 11 does the trick...

Genius picture and story...that cracked me up! I bet your hair is smelling delightful right now. Fringe+wind can be a bitch though right! Sounds like you had an awesome weekend xx

That's one funky hairstyle. I think I like it! And I dig those specs. Très classe!

How annoying can a fringe get. Mine is 12 weeks old some days I love it some days I hate it...
Will take note to NOT try the gel though!
Love the pics! gave me a good giggle today!

I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to do exactly the same thing - I'm very glad now that I didn't. Hilarious!
