Monday Inspiration #18: Braids

You know it's going to be an interesting day when by eleven o'clock strange things have already happened.

I was sitting at my desk putting on lip gloss. It's actually a stain, a very light red stain that has a lip plumping gloss on the other end. I was putting the stain on, not the gloss. I may have no lips, but I have no desire for my lips to be big and numb. So I was putting on the stain. I was minding my own business. In my right hand was a pocket mirror, in my left my lip stain. So there I was, minding my own business. I feel this fact needs to be stated a few times. Also take into account that my desk is at the back of the office. We have four desks in this little tiny room. There are two on either side. Mine is in the back right corner (for this scenario). The Back. Where I mind my own business. Well some guy walks up. He was walking from the back of the office towards the front. He got to the end of our doorway, which doesn't have a door much to our annoyance, and stopped. Now I was in the middle of a conversation with Bri, and we were minding our own business. So then the guy who stopped turns to me and says (and I quote, no joke): "You look good, don't worry." and proceeds to walk away. Bri and I just stared at each other. This all happened alot faster than I can write it, but it was so weird. We couldn't figure out what he meant, and why he was talking. Bri thinks it was because I was putting on my lip stain, I think it's because he was just a nutter. Maybe it was one of those you had to be there things, but it was weird. Also the phone has not stopped ringing all day. Oh Monday.

To counter this strange day I shall leave you with some pictures of lovely braided hair. I'm all about braids lately. This may have to do with the heat, and the fact that I realized the other day that my hair suddenly got alot longer than I thought it was, thus meaning I need it off my back during the day. I also think they are incredibly seasonally versatile, and very pretty and romantic.

So enjoy and have fun playing with your hair. Oh and before I forget, I'm going to be listing more things in my shop through this week. I figure if I do three things a day I might end up getting it all done by Friday. Yay for two weeks late!
