Ladies...(and gents?) Say hello to my newly permed hair!!! It doesn't look quite as curly anymore. My hair is so virgin the first perm came out within a month. So I got another one. And in another month I'll probably have to get it done again. I think the universe is telling me I'll never have curly hair... Blasted Asian genes! Well, it was fun for the two days it was curly..

I took note from my Pinspiration post for this outfit. One down, 7 to go! I can do it!!!

Also, I really like how I tied my belt... I used my own belt-tying method but had a lot of belt left over just hanging...having a party... so I did it to the other side too. I love the criss cross action going on. I think it'll only work with skinny belts.. but try it out and let me know.

  3. Really cute Elaine!  And I agree with Natasha--embrace that straight hair girl!  As a girl with curly hair, I've always wanted straight hair.  Wanna trade?  ;-)

  16. why don't you try pin curls or sleeping in soft rollers?  if you don't brush them out, and don't wash your hair, the curls should stay for about 3 days.  or at least, mine usually do.  my hair used to be really really straight and fine, but when i hit about 20 the texture really changed.  i got a perm 16 months ago and it's still going pretty strong.  but i used to sleep in soft rollers all the time.  it's not glamorous, but it did give me curls.

    and i didn't risk burning off all my hair with a curling iron :)

  21. I had super-straight hair my whole life till I started having kids.  With each of my 5 kids, it got curlier and curlier.  Maybe this is your solution? :)
