So I think I might give up the old getting drunk thing for a while.

I am just sick of feeling revolting the next day.

I don't always have a hangover, but I'm over wasting half the day feeling horrid.

So now more drinking for Hayley Bash for a while. I might have one or two, but no more.
I wanted to post about it as extra incentive to stick to it!

I'm looking forward to saving money too. I only drink spirits which is insanely expensive!

Does anyone else have an opinion on alcohol intake? Do you never drink? Do you limit your intake?

Why? How have you found the experience?

What's on your bedside table?

My current reading material is the Lonely Planet New York Encounter Book.

A bite sized book packed FULL of information about a place that seems far too full to ever explore completely. I only started it today and I've been hi-lighting, circling and flagging all over the shop.

It has made me so extra excited about my holiday to be reading and researching! The books still waiting to be perused are the Lonely Planet Encounters... LA, San Fran, Chicago, London and Las Vegas.

The encounter books are good for me. The 'America' Lonely Planet book is far too huge for me to contemplate reading - or taking with me. So these pocket size ones are great.

And they are making me SO GIDDY WITH EXCITEMENT!

Magenta goodness

My blog is so random. From suffocating grief, to new hair colour!
Last time I'll mention the randomness.. it's just how life is now.

So my cousin Juliet is (apart from being a SUPER person) a talented hairdresser. Considering how costly my crazy colour preferences could be, I'm very lucky Juliet helps me out with my hair these days! We are seeing each other a lot more lately which is great. Good things always come from bad. She put the blonde streak in my hair which was a little tribute to Simon thing I had going on.

This is the most extreme style I've had - full on colour! But I LOVE it.

It is even brighter in person I feel.
Much more pink/magenta!
