Hey Blog Buddies!
OK, so you know how the subheading on my blog calls me a "not-so-ordinary geek girl?" The reason for that, as I'm sure those of you who know me will already know, is because I'm just as much into fashion, art, shoes, makeup and all of the artsy and not-simply-practical things that you would normally associate with a "geek". We're breaking down stereotypes here at the old Geek Girl Blog. :) LOL.
Anyhow, I JUST got my hair cut short for the first time in years, and, for those of you who are starting think that today's blog would be without any gadgets, think again! I wanted to share my new haircut with you all, as I'm pretty excited about it and still a bit in shock that I chopped off so much, and then I want to share a hair-related gadget with you that I just got that I LOVE--it's a modern marvel of engineering.
OK, here's the hair:
It's actually really dark underneath too, but you can't really see in this picture. You'll see it in the next podcast. Thoughts?? You likee? I think it's sassy and fun...and a change is always nice, especially if you've been in a slump like I have recently. :(
And now on to the gadget part--I asked for one thing and one thing only this year for my birthday, which was two weeks ago. I wanted a damn good hair straightener, like the one the stars use (not to be like them, but because they don't have time for crappy gadgets, and I decided that at 28 I deserved a damn good straightening gadget). So, my wildest dreams were fulfilled, and here you go...I present the GHD Styler:
it may not look like much, but for those of you (boys and girls) who use devices such as this, this one's the bee's knees. Seriously. I wouldn't use that phrase if I weren't serious. :) (For more info on the styler, click HERE. I promise I have no interest in this company promotion wise, nor do I with any of the other products I talk about/review on this blog. They are just gadgets that I use, and I will be honest about them!)
And before I sign off, I just wanted to mention a worthy cause: I was bummed when I cut my hair that it wasn't long enough to donate to Locks of Love, (click on the name to visit their non-profit site), which provides hair pieces to kids suffering from illnesses that cause them to lose their hair. I thought I'd mention the site/cause here, as I feel that it's a very worthy cause, in the hopes that one of you out there might be thinking about cutting your hair too, and if so, perhaps yours is long enough for Locks of Love. If you do decide to do it, feel free to bring along your camera and send me photos/video of your cut and donation and I'll make sure to feature it in my next blog!
