Bye Blonde, Hi Ombré & oh, oh! A 2-second Vlog

Sometimes I want things absolutely gone from my life. Items such as: old boyfriends, questionable cartons of milk in my fridge, junk mail andddd hair color that I grow tire of.
Blonde- I was sooo over you.

So instead of complaining, I called 911 (aka my hairdresser's number) and asked her to take out all that light-haired nonsense and replace it with something darker.

I've gone dark many-a-time before so a swap in color on my strands isn't anything new... however, this time, instead of doing an all over color, we decided to get a little jiggy wit it and try to do an ombré look.

Turned out a little different than what I had thought but I really actually love it and am looking forward to seeing what I can do with it! More so though, I'm just excited to have some brunette in my hair, I was cravvvvin' it badly and I think it was just what the doctor ordered.
And because there's not enough of my face in this post (sheesh...I apologize for all the photo bombs these last two posts!), while I waited for my chicken to cook on Sunday night, I decided to take a mini-VLog for you. It's like 12 seconds long, I say nothing of substance and I'm really awkward talking. However, I think it's nice to remind everyone about once a year that I'm an actual girl named Caitlin and not some fat old man who lives in a hut in Nowheresville, USA.

I really am ME!

{My 12-second, awkward Vlog :) }

And a happy, happy Monday to YOU!

Ahhh woah, I was wondering how long (more like little) it would take you to go back to dark, but didn't expect it to be... in the next post! lol I love this color!! Suits you really well :) How many times have you changed your hair color btw? Have you ever counted? I change my shade a lot, but only have had a few drastic hair changes, but mostly with styles, not really colors...

I love your vlog too! You're so real in it and it's exactly what make sit awesome. I could even imagine myself being there with you in your kitchen, and I consider it a good thing! lol

Also, I so appreciate your excitement over the Real Simple feature! :) Thanks Caitie dear soo much! :) If you do get a copy, please send me some pics or scans... What's more convenient! One of the editors said she would mail me a copy, but I am not sure it would reach me here in Russia or that she even would do that lol

I am loving the new hair color it's fantastic! It's beautiful, but you're gorgeous as always! I love it for fall and I think any hair color will look great on you :)

Girl, I love the jiggy-wit-it ombre look on you. I did something similar with my hair a month or so ago. It isn't the usual ombre look that you see. I did it with red highlights and dark red on the back/bottom portions, and I love it. It just looks way cool and casually chic.

love the new hair! i think i'm gonna stick it out with my lighter hair/highlights this year, especially that i got highlighted clip on extensions (ooohhh love love love them!) anyhoo - you are soo good in making sure you've got your food ready to go for the week. i'm organized in many aspects of my life, but not when it comes to stuff like that. i always procrastinate and make an excuse to eat out or just make the same salad over and over! LOL love the short vlog and it's soo cool to see/hear you on video! yay!

Heather said...

Gorgeous!!

Kara said...

The ombre hair looks GREAT! I'm loving the ombre trend so much. It's really cute. And also can we talk about how precious your vlog was?! I should take a page out of your book and prep my meals for the week...most of the time it's me running around flailing in the mornings trying to just throw shit in a bag because i'm running late. It's cute, i know.

Kim's Vanity said...

LOL @ fat old man living in a hut!!

Ocean Dreams said...

Cute you - cute vlog! Wow, you are so disciplined for getting your food all ready for the week! Maybe if I did that I would eat a lot healthier!

Mandy @ In the Fashion Lane said...

You look great! Love hearing your voice! And you cook your food for the week? I need to take lessons from you!

OMG, how cute are you!
I love the new hair color! Of course I am biased, brunettes just do it better! & so totally jealous of the eye makeup. You need to do another vlog telling us (ME!) how you do it, & what you use. & funny, my mom does the same thing, she cooks on Sunday, & buy Wed I am finished with my curry chicken, have nothing to eat, well cereal. I have my cereal.
