hair Archives - the little lioness



Went to see Tijuana Cartel at the Oxford Art Factory again on Friday night. Got me some dancing in, and even wore appropriate shoes for the job, even if they did get soaked through walking from the Pitt Street mall to Oxford street. A little time under the hand dryers helped a little, but while I dried off, I did get told twice at the Colombian to put my shoes back on :p

@runningonline Workout #1
(Crib notes for the session)

Did my first session of my Up & Running course this evening. And interesting combination which saw me relieve the skipping along the foreshore was over and I could just go back to running ;)

workout #1

Covered 8km using a combination of walking, running, jogging and skipping. Was fun, but will head out a little earlier next time, ended up walking home in the dark! I’ll also wear my newer shoes, not my worn out sad old shoes. They’re okay for walking, but NOT for the running. Felt the impact on my left foot while skipping along!

arm band

Oh and I have to say my new phone arm band (scored off ebay for $8 including postage) is awesome. Even has a sneaky little key pocket. Score!


(ps, my hair is getting really long!)


Pretty in…. Purple

So, I like purple. Always have. I remember I had a cardigan once my Aunty knitted me. It was purple, and warm, and I wore it everywhere. :) When I got to choose the colours for my room, I went for lilac. I was stoked when the bouquets for my sister’s wedding had purple ribbons. It goes on.

There’s a lot less purple in my wardrobe these days, but I still have a bunch in the accessories department (gotta have some sparkle in my mostly grey and black clothing! You’d think I lived in Melbourne or something.) Like the Butterfly clip above.

Purple tights

Many pairs of purple tights have been in my life.

Hello Kitty Pants!

And of course Hello Kitty AND Purple? I’m in!

But it was 25% off!

Or this favourite lingerie set of mine, Pleasure State :)

Purple Glittle Jesus

And there was that short lived affair with the Purple Glitter Jesus Moneybox. (JESUS SAVES!!!!) How is he going, Hannah?

So, if I was to get a ghd to replace my old hair straightener, it would HAVE to be purple. Like the Purple Peacock above. Then I’d KNOW it was mine ;)

What’s your go to colour??

Dove Nutri Oil Serum

by Fiona on May 8, 2012 · 6 comments

I received half a dozen of these little bottles as part of Product Talk by Nuffnang, I have not received payment for this post

DO NOT take how oily my hair looks in this photo as evidence of the use of this oil. I just haven’t washed my hair in close to a week. Because I’m slack like that at the moment.

So, I got half a dozen of these little bottles of Dove Nutri Oil Serum to play with and review. Threw one the way of my flatmate, who had only positive things to say, so positive she was lacking words when I asked for her opinion:

As far as I was concerned, I loved the smell, and it did reduce the frizz levels on my frizzy hair (think I used it two days post wash). And it was a great excuse to have Rish brush my hair :) *spoilt*

Do you use products like this on your hair? I have to admit to being super lazy, but you know, if it’s sitting there, it may well get used!

Went and got my hair cut yesterday (at Just Cuts. Pay for what you get :p) and dyed it this morning (Ultra Violet Red)


What you can’t see in that photo (aside from all of my awesome new Threadless tee) is the bit at the back that’s … well a bit too long for the rest. Rish is still unsure whether he just needs to get used to it, or if he needs to trip my mullet-like tail :p The girl cutting it tapered the end rather than cutting it straight along the bottom, so it’s a little “different” looking with the layers. Oh well, only hair!

(ps – Happy Desexing Month! Do your bit and get Ms Moggy desexed)


Evactuation? But it's my day off!

September 26, 2008

All I wanted to do was to get a cheap hair cut from Just Cuts, so went on down to Westfield at Woden this morning to do that… but nooooooo… we had to be evacuated (4th time for me in 2 weeks) due to a fire in a candle store (Dusk). At least there were […]

So Disorganised

July 3, 2008

Last day of work today before … Greece! *squeals and bounces and stuff* (or at least I would if I wasn’t out late yet again last night! These are bad habbits I’m getting into… Probably shouldn’t become a regular at Muddle Bar… even if I do love the people I meet there and the cocktails […]

Sale Shopped

June 14, 2008

I have some awesomely cheeky new lingerie – little white sailor bra and undies. There’s a little anchor on the front. No, no action shots (unless you ask nicely and privately ;) or bribe me with chocolate *giggles*) These would have really been good for the party the other week. And I have yet another […]

Lose Yourself

March 16, 2008

About to head to the gym for (hopefully) a good cardio session – I can’t push myself too hard, given it’s still 31 degrees, I’ve been sick and I haven’t done much this week, but I will pop the ipod on, and do wha I can. Will do at least my 5:30 mins on the […]

Two Right Feet

January 21, 2008

Okay, while I sit here destroying my hair with yet another bleach and dye job (it was falling out beforehand, so why not now?) I’ll retell to you my day. 6am: Awoken by the daily cockatoo flyover. Actually the flyover was a little later than this, because I remember hearing the snakes’ task light turn […]

Nice face (shame about the hair)

December 16, 2007

Despite not feeling up to it (completely emo and off), I felt that it was the best thing to do and threw myself into heading out into town last night. So after settling on wearing a short sparly silver dress because I felt just as good in that as anything else, and it IS christmas, […]

I about half an hour, I’ll find out what the hair dye packet means by “Intense Violet Red”, as opposed to red, violet, violet red or plain old red violet. I’ll also get to wash the colour off my neck that looks like a deep, dark bruise :) I’m going to keep my hair long, […]
