Do you Remember...The 90s Blonds?

The late 90's / early 2000 blonds? I was one of them! Ah nostalgia :D

I recently cut my hair short in an A-lined bob (short in the back and longer in the front). I damaged my hair from dying it too much, so I decided to chop it off. The A-line bob was a last minute decision.
Here is a pic of me from 2003 taken by my mother-in-law (to be).
Anyways, after I cut my hair, I have been reminded of the short blond es from the 90s that I grew up idolizing like Gwen Stefani, Drew Barrymore, Julia Stiles, etc.

Who were some of your favorite blonds in the late 90s/early 2000s?

So Thankful!

Halloween this year was quite difficult as I was rather sick! In this photo I was going for Dita's femme fatale look when she parts her hair down the middle, always so fab! My sister and her boyfriend also looked fab at dinner! We all decided to go to Pechanga for dinner, but did not see many people dressed up.

For Thanksgiving I had just finished watching LisaFreemontStreet's hair tutorial on one of Lolita Haze's updos, and so I thought I would give it a try. It did not come out the same, but I think it has a similar look. Everyone (including my picky parents) loved it! I used perm rods on the top layers and some pillow rollers on the bottom and back.

Here is a pic of my vintage inspired manicure I gave myself before I headed off to my Grandmother's. It's by Revlon and has a warm red with gold shimmer in it that can take a reddish-brown huh with warmer clothes or a plum-gold with cooler tones. Quite versatile!
As the evening came to a close at Lauren's parents house, his mom decided I needed a clay facial! Sadly, I soon discovered I forgot to get a pic of me and Lauren on Thanksgiving, oops :(

I really want to find a fab 40s dress in my size and some colorful (hopefully leather) gloves this winter season, what are you looking for?
