Oh dear my last post was three weeks ago I believe. Sorry everybody,
I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to turn on the computer and
type out a personal " life report".
(What my hair looked like right after my dreads were cut and combed out.)
Hm, I have been stalling in letting the social media world know that I have had my dreads cut out. Because I know that I'm going to be receiving a lot of criticism over not being able to "handle dreads" or being a hypocrite in the dread community. Regardless of it all though I had my reasons for having them cut off. Number one on my list is that my bedroom has a draft somewhere and of course that is welcome mat for all sorts of creepy crawlies to come in my room and use my hair as a nest for there young. No I never had lice or anything like that, but I did have quite a number of baby spiders dangle and drop from my dreads. You can imagine how annoying that can quickly become. Reason number two, my hair is naturally very thick and VERY heavy, so the back of my neck and head were starting to ache from all the weight thus leading to painful headaches. Reason number 3, I used to have a record of constantly catching a cold every few weeks and it was mostly caused by my hair not being able to dry fast enough after it was washed. And having dreads appeared to be bringing that record back, even more so as the season starts to get colder.
So there you have it my reasonable reasons on why I had decided to cut off all my hair and leave it styled in a pixie cut like I used to have back in high school.
Hey I used my new haircut as an opportunity to dress up as Audrey Hepburn from the film Breakfast at Tiffany's for Halloween. The entire outfit was made up from stuff I had lying around the house (rephrase, mainly from my sister's wardrobe). The only item that was bought was the long and thick fake eyelashes that I had on, and can I just say it may be the last time I ever wear them.
(Um, yes that is an actual Tiffany's jewelry store.)
(Did I go to far?)
(My sister as the cutest little wind up robot ever in the world.)
So this past Sunday I attended my first ever VegFest,
and boy was it delicious!
I sampled everything! From chocolate bars, kettle corn, croutons, nut bars, smoothies, spicy "chicken", to burgers I had it all! With so many vegan food trucks to choose from I settled down on the one thing that I have been wanting to try for a long while, and that is a veggie burger complete with vegan cheese and vegan mayo. And boy was it ever good! Though I think i'd rather have the cheese and mayo as a once in awhile treat, because afterwards my stomach wasn't able to handle the oils and fat all that well. But it was good regardless! And I'd be happy to order something like this again.
Ah ice cream, another thing I have been wanting to try since I went vegan, and I actually stood in line for more than half an hour to get an ice cream cookie sandwich (which probably wouldn't have happened if I didn't have such a strong sweet tooth). It was sooooooooooo good! Creamy, sweet and the cookies were so soft, making for the best ice cream sandwich I have ever eaten!
Yeah I'll post the names to all the places that I sampled so you guys can try it too.
