Goodbye to coloured hair

I've been dying my hair funky colours off and on for the past 4 years. (I had red/pink hair for a while and then dyed it black before I went on a big family trip) I've done the most hair dying in the last 2.5 years. I've almost been every colour in the rainbow... and even had rainbow hair! But it's time now, to say goodbye to the funky hair dye life.

About a week ago, I stripped the red out of my hair (as much as I could) and bought a box of dark brown hair dye. My hair actually turned out black but whatever... It was time for a change. I still love coloured hair (plus it's fun to change colours every couple of months) but I hate the work, time and money I had to put into my hair every month. Not only that but I had to buy special shampoos and conditioners that wouldn't strip my dye. Sometimes I would stain my clothes or pillow cases... I could go on and on...

I could write a super long post about all the things I learned about coloured hair. All the pros and cons. How to do it properly. How to take care of it. What to look out for, etc.
Ah.. maybe I will?

Anyways, I'm excited about giving my hair a break and letting it get a bit more healthy. Everyone's always told me I look better with dark hair so maybe I'll play around with different shades of browns and highlights? Who knows, there's so much you can do with hair!

Has anyone else had coloured hair and gone back to something a bit more natural? Do you miss it?

P.S. Happy Canada Day! :]

Review: June Movies

When Marnie Was There
Recommend? Sure
Re-watch? Probably no

I liked this movie but I wanted to really like it. I was expecting something a bit more... magical? The story was good, well it got really good near the end but most of it was a bit slow. (not a bad thing, just a fact) I remember when the movie first came out people were saying how it was a movie about being gay, but it wasn't at all. Just some of the things said and some actions came off a bit strange but at the end it all makes sense. I'm glad I saw this movie but I don't think I'll even need to see it again.

Jurassic World
Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Yes

I was SO excited for this movie! I loved it. The dinosaurs looked good, the story was decent... lots of nods to the first movie, Jurassic Park. (which I loved). I feel like everyone's seen this movie already but if you haven't yet... and you liked Jurassic Park, then go see this one!
Inside Out
Recommend? Yes!
Re-watch? Yes!

When I first heard what this movie was about, I was like... I can't wait to see how they do this! Very interesting concept. I love how they are thinking outside the box on this one. And it was so good! I cried. Like, sometimes movies make me tear up.... and once in a while I'll shed one single tear. But once in a blue moon I'll actually cry. And I don't even fully understand why I was crying but I wasn't the only one. The whole theatre was fully of sniffles. Aside from a movie (an animated movie!) being so good it brings me to tears... the story was great, something we can all relate to. A movie for the whole family for sure. And I loved Sadness, she was my favourite. I thought Disgust would have been my favourite character because of her design but Sadness won my heart. Phyllis Smith was a perfect choice as the voice for her.

P.S. I think the last Pixar movies that made me cry were probably Brave and Up.

Disposable Film Dump

I'm supposed to be posting a monthly film post but it takes a while for my film to get developed. And now, I'm a bit behind and the film is all mixed up. So I'm just going to post film dumps whenever I can. This is a mix of pictures I took between March and April using disposable cameras.
From the Art Gallery of Ontario. Kinda spooky looking.
A great shot of Captain at the dog park.
Waiting to go to work.
If only it was a bit more in focus!
Justin's Birthday!
