Love me a sunset


Today I learned not to cut my fringe @ 6.30am when I’m not quite awake! Thankfully it’s not too crooked!

  1. All pretty wise things.

    Your fringe is straight, but ragged. I am thinking you did it with pinking shears. Note to self, don’t touch eyebrows early in the morning. It always ends badly.

    • Yeah, it’s meant to be ragged, makes it less blunt and works better.

      You’re right, eyebrows should not be touched either!

  2. I have been cutting my own fringe for donkey years! I learned a long time ago to do it raggedly, and not straight across, so it looks like Mum put the pot on my head and cut in a straight line! HAHAHA!
    I only get a proper haircut maybe once a year? If that.

    Looks good. Sutis you.

  3. *SUITS Goddang it!

  4. Of course it suits you, little Fen.


    Always a baby.

  5. Just catching up, wise words they are. I like number six in particular as I think we start to decay on the inside when we forget how to play and be in the moment.

    I haven’t had a fringe for years as my hair is naturally curly and I can’t control it … maybe one day I will now I’m semi-competent with a hair dryer!
