New light fixture from kijiji and new haircut
You guys know about the Listings List Tumbler, right? It's a round up of Toronto area Kijiji and Craigslist items. I know I wouldn't have bought this vintage bronze beauty if the Listing List didn't exist. I can't help myself when it comes to lighting!
I love this fixture!
I was thinking the nursery. We bought the existing pendant at a nothing-special lighting store. We settled. It was impossible to find decent affordable lighting. Our necks were getting sore, and I recall getting headaches, because we spent so much time walking around every lighting store in the city, looking up at the wares. The white honey bee hive pendant was an upgrade over a boob light, but I always thought we could do better.
Anyways, I also cut my hair into a bob. I am VERY happy with this cut. Why didn't I do it sooner?*
*Ok, I know why...about 1.5 years ago I was a little obsessed with top knots...because all the cool cats were doing it. So I needed the length. Except I couldn't pull off the length and wear my hair down...a bob is much much better for me! It's funny how I was influenced by other bloggers for a while. Why then? Why not now? I think being locked in the house with babies was part of it. Also being a weight I wasn't comfortable with (insecure)...and, well, sometimes they make stuff look so damn good. I don't think I am as easily influenced now, but it is hard to say. It is much easier to look back than to be aware of what is going on right now!
ps. went to the same salon I have been complaining about. Paid WAY too much for a cut...but since I am happy with my hair, I don't mind!
