My SL Journey Video Months 0-12

I have never gotten around to doing comparision shots so here is a 30 second video for you to enjoy. I see some difference but it's not that major - or is it? lol

It's my HAIR Anniversary - 1 YEAR


For my hair anniversary the sun came out and I began to snap lots of pics randomly after washing my hair. I didn't really do anything hair related apart from the hair wash.

I just relaxed and appreciated my hair. I note that my hair isn't perfect but it's getting there.

Whats good:
* No longer having to braid and and when washing
* My hair getting thicker, the ends of some of my locks are beginning to seal
* Knowing what to put in my hair and knowing how it will react

Whats bad and how I intend to conquer it:
* Some locks at the back of my neck are too thin for the hair back there which is not as thick as the middle. This has seen some lost locks from most of the bottom row.
The solution: I'll combine my locks very soon just by the regrowth leaving some two headed dragons. I'll combine maybe two rows from the back and one or two rows at my temple area. I'll leave one row with the small micro sized locks near my temple area at the front of my head.
* Dandruff mainly at the front of my hair which has been controlled but sometimes gets a bit flaky.
The solution: I have two spray bottles one with water and the other with lavender and water where either one is used every day depending on my hair. Also I still use cocois (cold tar solution) on the very occasion when the dandruff does not disappear quickly.

What I want to do in my second year:
* Continue to love my hair and make retightenings faster and more scheduled.
* Dye my hair a vibrant red colour but before doing so taking every precaution so as not to damage my locks.

Carnival Rotterdam

Here are a pics from the Rotterdam Carnival. It was so nice to go again. The people, the hugh breakfasts and fresh juice really did me wonders. I found they put so much effort into making the costumes as you'll see from these pics.

Proof that I am random most days even with food

Just a few pics to confirm that I do not mind what combination goes with what on certain days, including today where I ate 3 'weird' food combos: Cheesy omelette with cream crackers with jam, Asda Chicken noodles and hot tuna with salad lol.
