Currently

Doing: Taxes and some spring cleaning. Went out to IKEA recently and bought some fun things like a new coffee table (on wheels!) and of course, pillows. 

Eating: Salads... but also pizza.

Thinking about: Niagara Falls Con! It'll be here before I know it. I still got a bunch of new headbands and bows to make before then. I have so much fabric but I also want to get more... 

Watching: 3rd rock from the sun. I didn't watch this show that much when it was originally on air but it is pretty funny!! Also just started (and already finished) re-watching Escaflowne. Love(d) it!
 
Looking forward to: The next couple months. We don't really have any big plans so that means I get some weekends to myself, to do whatever I want. Maybe start a new sewing project or finish that whale painting... Also, I just purchased the DVD set of Gundam Wing and I can't wait to re-watch it. One of my favourites!

Reading: Ms. Marvel and Jem and The Holograms.

Loving: The weather lately. So nice to not be freezing. I'm ready to get rid of these layers.

Review: March Movies

Kingsman: The Secret Service
Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Yes 

I remember seeing a trailer for this movie a while ago and thinking 'meh', we'll see if we watch this one. Then I found out Justin really wanted to see it and other people had been telling me what a good movie it is (great action sequences etc), so we went. And it was amazing! Yes the action/fighting sequences were very cool. Reminded me a bit of how the action shots were done in 'Watchmen' but with a twist. Very interesting and I liked it! Story was interesting enough and the main actor is a cutie. Haha. If you haven't already, go see this one. Kind of reminds me of a James Bond movie...but for today?
Chappie
Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Probably

Justin was the one that really wanted to see this one. I was kind of.... indifferent. The movie itself was pretty different than what we were expecting, but in a good way! I love Chappie's character and the way he talked and his development. It was weird seeing Ninja and Yolandi in the movie at first. Yolandi did a pretty great job thought. I actually really liked her character a lot. Other than that, I don't have much to say about this one. (Hugh Jackman in those shorts, I couldn't take him seriously... haha) I liked this movie but I'm not in love with it. If you liked District 9 at all then you should check this movie out. They both have the same sort of.. 'feel'. And obviously it's the same director.
Cinderella
Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Maybe?

I really wanted to see this movie, mainly because it looked so pretty. We decided to try out the VIP section of the theatre for this one. I feel like it's well worth the extra cost. Big comfy chairs and being waited on before the movie starts. Pretty cool. Totally going to try to see more movies (especially ones directed at families/kids) in VIP from now on.

But anyways, the movie... it was good. Not great but I liked what they did with it. They stayed true to the story we all know and love but put a bit of a modern twist on it, which I really liked. The dresses and costumes were so pretty in this movie! I do feel like her dress was maybe a bit too long and a bit too...big because during the dance I kept waiting for him to step on it, haha. Definitely go see this one if you are a fan of the story and/or a fan of Disney. We left the theatre feeling good and that's always a good sign.

Hair appreciation: #2

Hey, look! New hair! I've had this hair colour(s) for about 2 weeks now. I did it before the Toronto ComiCon because I thought it would be fun to have colourful hair for a convention. And I've always wanted colourful hair! It didn't take too much time to do. Maybe a little extra time because of all the separating and awkwardly wrapping my hair with tinfoil. I had to get Justin to help with the back.

I think the most annoying part was bleaching. I normally just do a small bleach bath or I only do my roots If I'm sticking with the same colour. But I had to do a lot more for this multicoloured hair. I ended up doing like, 2 (or 3?) vitamin C treatments and 2 bleach baths! The vitamin C treatments barely did anything this time around (must be because I switched to the 'punky colour' brand?) and by the end of it all, my hair was mostly a light blonde/white on the top and a light peachy colour on the ends. I should have done one more bleach bath but I was getting annoyed/bored, plus I wanted to get to the fun part... adding the actual colour to my hair!

As you can see it came out... alright. Well. Okay! It's pretty good for my first time. This was my first time doing more than 2 colours in my hair. So, It's not a perfect job but It's not horrible! I definitely learned a lot. But I gotta say... I hate the green. All the other colours look good, except the green. It. Just. Looks. Blah!! I'm either going to try to keep this hair for a month or two or I'm thinking of going purple/pink. If I do decide to try to keep the colourful hair, I will be going over the green with a blue or purple. It needs to go! But we shall see... my grandma is visiting from Poland this summer and I don't know if she's ready for this hair, Haha.

Anyways, below are some more pictures of the new hair. Also my new glasses! (If you haven't seen any of my recent vlogs...yes, I wear glasses now.) Have you ever done multicoloured hair before? Did you love it or hate it?
Smelling my hair?
