New blog!

Ello lovelies,
I don't use this blog anymore.

I've gone and made myself a new blog called "Peppermint Wink". It was originally going to be "Peppermint Smiles" but some name thief already had the name, hehe. Oh well. I just wanted something weird and somehow Peppermint Something fit... Somehow.

Anyway, here it is.

I'm intending to collaborate all of my interests together, not just kawaii. I love vintage, indie, kitsch, etc. as well so I want to reflect that in my new blog. I'm also intending to do some craft projects on there. Don't worry, I'll still have some kawaii there!

P.S. For those who are rating me for the "I love your blog!" swap on swap-bot, everything I've done for that swap is on this blog (Kimitty Kim), not Peppermint Wink.

I ♥ Your Blog! swap-bot swap

Some of you may be curious as to why I have some blog buttons and extra links displayed on the right-hand side of my blog... I've joined up on swap-bot, a website for swapping, and this is all part of the swap requirements for I ♥ Your Blog!
I was required to link my partners to my blog, link them on my own blog, and write a post about it. So here it is!

Here are the things I liked most about my 7 partners' blogs, whose links you will find in the sidebar on my blog:

  • Batmamma: I really love the post about her box of memories. The jewellery in that box is definitely the type of stuff that I would wear. But I love the idea of such small items being of such great significance to somebody.
  • Hanging Off The Wire: Mostly I loved the post about her son, Mason, and his professional photos! He looks so cute in his snazzy little outfit, and he reminds me of those professional baby photo places in shopping centres and such where the chicks working there humiliate themselves by pulling ridiculous faces and making the silliest noises just to get the cute little kid to smile... Lol! It's funny to watch.
  • Novel Niche: Not only do I love that this blogger is one of my new Facebook friends, but her blog is about NOVELS! One of my favourite things in the world. I now know to visit her blog and read her awesome novel reviews whenever I'm stuck on something good to read. 
  • I really love her style of writing most. I consider it really intelligent, articulate and delicate.
  • Erica Lee: I love all of the cool graphics on her blog, her layout, the way she sets everything out and all of the cool links she puts up in her posts!
  • Adventures with the Nowling Family: What I love the most about this blog is that it is a family blog... I love families and plan to start my own in the next few years! I also really loved the alligator post. I wonder how her kids would react if they ever met a crocodile at an animal park, lol!
  • Crea Bloempje666 :): One thing I love most about this blog is that it's a few of my favourite things all rolled into one... Food, cats and bags. I'm definitely going to try out that mustard soup recipe, it looks so good!

I miss my fluoro red hair!

I miss my fluoro red hair. I had it done this colour at the start of the year
so I would have a fresh look for when I started university, but since then I've
dyed over it... It's still bright red, just not as red as it was!

I just stumbled across these pictures of when I was getting my hair done that colour.

I had to have a bleach wash through it so my hair was light enough to get the 
desired colour, but it looked a bit gross because my hair before that was an orange
colour as it had faded from a dark red.

The hairdresser working away on my hair after the bleach wash! 
The blondie in the back there is one of my best friends, Shelby.

The ends of my bleach washed hair looked kind of cool and J-rock...ish.

Waiting for the dye to process... I had no idea at that time that my 
hair would come out being so bright and vibrant!

Coffee and a magazine while waiting. Sigh... *taps foot*

The dye was then washed out, and my hair was cut! Look how bright it is.

It came out looking like this! Awesome, huh?

This is the colour it faded to... I loved it. Then I got regrowth and dyed over it.
