Have you ever had one of those days where everything ( I mean, everything ) just goes absolutely wrong? Well, that’s been my life since Sunday… and now its Tuesday and it just needs to STOP.
Yesterday, I was planning on putting this post up, and I woke up all excited about sharing my ACL experience & fun, colored hair with y’all. I went to open my computer… and…. it is completely dead. Like, wont-charge-or-turn-on dead. As a college student (and blogger, obviously), this is my worst nightmare coming to life. So, my poor little computer is being checked out by technicians for the next week.
This morning, so far, I have stepped in dog poop, spilled my green juice all over my kitchen / self, missed a class because my alarm was set for 9 PM, not AM… and I’ve only been awake for like an hour. Luckily, the school computer lab came in clutch this morning ( and Starbucks helped a little ).
Alright, I’ll shut up and get down to biz.
I spent my weekend jammin’ out at the Austin City Limits Festival. Eating, drinking, listening to some coooool tunes. Not too shabby. Here’s the low-down on ACL, through my eyes:
∇ The Food: GoodPop Hibiscus Mint Popsicles are everything
∇ The Drank: There are five million bar areas ( + Juice places !! )
∇ Eminem, Lana, Jhené Aiko, Iggy, Calvin Harris, Zedd, etc. Are you serious with this lineup ( btw: Jhené Aiko is my new obsession… she is the most legit flower-child I’ve ever seen & her body is rockin’. Total Babe.)
∇ Tweens. Everywhere.
∇ Ohhh my god, I hate crowds.
∇ Being 20 million miles away from all the performers (see above con)
∇ Probably coming very close to contracting Ebola… like, germ-city.
The best part of Austin City Limits this year?? Picking out what to wear + my Redken Color Rebel Hair dye ( temporary, of course! ). This stuff is real-deal, easy AF, temporary hair color. I chose this bad-A hot pink for my ends at the festival. Obviously, it screams music festival ( keeping in mind for Coachella. k duh… )
I chose to join the campaign for this wonderful product because 1) I lurve Redken just in general and 2) I lurve changing my hair up with some cool color every so often, but I’m not daring enough to make it a permanent thing.
• The sponge-tip applicator makes it super easy to glide on to hair
• I had the best experience with coloring my hair when it was clean & dry, and then sealing the color by brushing through my hair & applying a little heat ( with my curling iron … But you could also just hit it with a blow dryer ).
• The color stays true for about two washes, then it’s done-zo.
• Redken makes a bazillion different colors of this stuff ( I have red and pink ), but I liked the pink best this weekend.
