You and I are diamonds in the sky

What do you see when you look in the mirror? This is a selection of what I have seen over time . A changing parade of styles and colours …

I wonder what that says about me? Obviously I like to change my looks. I like colour. I’m partial to experimenting on my locks. I use my hair as an artist’s palette and play with it.  Some have called me adventurous and daring. Me? It’s fun. Life is too short to always take it seriously. I guess it reflects my childlike, mischievous side.

As I reflect further on me, myself and I, I have come to the conclusion that what I said about wearing purple and being awesome still applies!

As the song says – Shine like a diamond!

A pink one

Steps for Peace 
Diamonds were nothing more than carbon, but carbon in a crystal lattice that made it the hardest known mineral in nature. That was the way we all were headed. I was sure of it. We were destined to be diamonds!”

  1. I used to change hair colour a lot ! Personally for me I think I was trying to express myself/ find myself/ create myself, 🤔 not sure really. Now I use paint 🎨 on canvas that way I can go where the mood takes me . 😉

      1. No although I used to use a product called B4colour and that stripped the colour out before I applied new colour. It was a gentle effective way to move colour

  2. I think you’re a streaker Raili!
    My hair’s getting a bit thin – but then who wants fat hair?
    My Dad went bald early. He used to sit with a rabbit on his head. He hoped that, from a distance, it looked like a hare.

  3. That parrot look was quite something Raili! especially when I saw you it in the flesh with the colours, was very subtle and nice. 😊

  4. I’ve been thinking about putting a purple or pink streak in my hair for over a year. I just noticed L’Oreal came out with a color product that you can spray in your hair and it washes out. I’m planning to show it to my colorist so she can talk me out of it or talk me into it. 🙂

    1. You gotta try it at least once – you do know, don’t you that there’s wash off tat’s around? If you don’t like it you take it off. Same with hair colour and nails. You can even get fake ones 🙂 Just sayin’ One of our neighbours dyes his hair orange 🙂
