Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman,
Hope you are all enjoying the festive season with your friends, loved ones and family.
Thank You to colleagues, friends and family for the beautiful Christmas cards. I love the cards as they all have heartfelt messages from everyone! Also, the image of the card on the front of the card are all so cute! It brings a smile to my face.
The year 2015 is right around the corner! Every time a new year arrives it means a new change for all of us and a New Years resolution that we try to follow through . Do any of you have any changes you wish to make in 2015 or have a New Years resolution? If so, please do share! Would love to hear them :).
I wish to share all of you the change I have made. As previously mentioned in my previous blog, I have been to a lot of weddings in the last 3 months so I kept my hair long. As soon as the weddings were finished I knew that I wanted to cut my hair short. I wanted a change for myself and was over having long hair.
I enjoyed turning up to work with my new haircut and seeing my friends and colleagues without telling them about the new haircut. Best bit was seeing the shock on their faces:). Love surprising friends and colleagues hehe.
Australia Alpoecia Areta Foundation
The great news is the hair I have cut off (45cm of my hair was cut off) will be donated to Australia Alpoecia Areta Foundation Inc. The hair that is donated to AAAF is purchased by wig manufacturers who makes the hair pieces for medical purposes. I feel that I am doing a good deed by donating my hair.
If you wish to donate your hair to the Australia Alpoecia Areta Foundation here are the following requirements:
- Hair must be a minimum of 30cm
- Hair must be clean and dry
- Hair cannot be permed, colour-treated or highlighted. Temporary colouring or highlights that washout are acceptable
- Hair that is cut off has to be tied up in rubber bands and be tightly braided. The reason for the tight braids is to ensure that hair will not be loose when been shipped to the manufacturers.
Please refer to the images below of my long hair (My mugshots!):
Now, my new asymmetric haircut (I wanted an edgy haircut):
My before and after haircut (The new me!.. i love it!)
Thank You to my best friend of nearly 10 years and my own personal hairdresser Jess. She has done a fantastic job on my hair that it looks amazing! She is a truly, talented hairdresser that is amazing with haircuts, colours and hair ups. So, if any of you need a hairdresser I would highly recommend her!
Stonewall Rainbow Laces (UK)
Since we are on the topic of charities and good deeds, I bought rainbow laces for a friend of mine that i ordered online from the UK. The rainbow laces signifies support against anti-homophobia. This rainbow lace can only be bought in the UK from the following site: http://www.stonewall.org.uk
Please check out the below images of the rainbow laces on white converse shoes! When I look at the laces it makes me feel happy as it’s rainbow colours!
Also, it has a wonderful meaning as I wish one day that certain people can overlook a persons sexuality and race. A persons sexuality and race does not define who they are! It is more about the persons personality. People that are so ignorant frustrate me so much!. We are all human regardless of our sexuality and race:)
On a positive note! Look at the rainbow laces below! Aren’t they amazing? Go buy Rainbow Laces!
I wish all of you a happy new year and wish that the new year brings all of you everything that you aspire for. I look forward to sharing more of my posts in 2015!
P.S. Look at my new beautiful “Kikki K – Teal 2015 Daily Diary” from my best friend! Love the colour! Love it! Happy New Year! Looking forward to 2015!
Love Mei xoxo
