Once you go black...

So, on and off the last 10 years, I'd say...I've been dying my hair black. I really do feel like I've seriously tried every black hair dye there is to try. I've had my hair professionally dyed black, which was a nightmare. They seriously got it all over everywhere and it faded in 2 weeks. I know, I know, they use semi-permanent dye, but seriously 2 weeks?! I used L'Oreal Feria Black Leather and Starry Night. I hated them both. Blue black dye is the worst, at least on me. And again, it fades so quickly. The new love of my life(when it comes to hair color maintenance, anyway) is Revlon Colorsilk Black. I do not care that its only 5 dollars. It works so well and doesn't fade nearly as fast as its more expensive predecessors. Call me cheap, tacky, thrifty. I don't give a fuhhhhh. It is what it is.

Im gonna try and do a compare&contrast/Hit Or Miss with other things I love. Plain tees(AA, Victorias Secret, H&M, F21, etc etc.)

If there is some next level hair dye Im just completely unaware of that you ladies use, hook me up! Give me a heads up.

My heart just broke a little. The man, the myth, the legend... Michael Jackson died. Sad sad day for everyone. 

Flavor of the week...

So, a couple of ideas that the girls and I had were to have a Flavor of the Day/Week/Month in reference to new beers that we've tried. (Let's face it, too many snoody bia's are "cocktail only" drinkers.) I am an equal opportunity drinker.

Christina and I went to Dock Street Brewery at 50th and Baltimore in the heart of West Philly.
(Our girl A. Mictlan works there. I'll let her tell ya'll how sweet this place is. But I'm tellin you know, try ANY of the pizza's. So yum.) We both ordered a pint of Honey Wheat. Let me tell you know, after one I had a pretty fun buzz on. After my second, I couldnt stop giggling at everything.

The description on the menu read as follows, "Abv. 6.9% 17 IBU's. Whear beer brewed with 120 lbs of Pa sourced wildflower honey and spiced with corriander and dried curacao. Bubble gum and hops in the nose. Passion fruit and grass up front, grainy in the middle, with a dry spicy finish."

I absolutely love that you could smell the corriander and got a definite spy kick after each sip. Totally lovely on Tuesday evening. I fully recommend a pint(or several) of this yum beer.*

*I am by nooooo means a beer connoisseur . This is just my lowly opinion.

I'd love to hear about other bars/brews I should try.

Bad Girl

Western spurs and boot chains are the new bad girl accessory that I need to have this fall. Just imagine a mysterious silhouette, in the shadows of her black attire with silver clanging spurs, walking across the room. I'll be linked to a western outlaw because I am no innocent cowgirl. You won't want to double cross me or the crew of black haired ladies with bad habits. I just need to find the perfect boot to make this scenario complete.

How bad can one girl be?

I can't speak for the other 2 girls I am starting this blog with...but for me, this is the first one I've actually attempted to do seriously.  This is just an outlet for me and 2 of my near and dear girl friends to speak a little about what's on our minds and some of the flattering and maybe not so flattering things we are into and do. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you come back time and time again to find that you are truly interested in the nonsense I have to write about. <3
