To get a haircut at a barber that wasn’t going to discriminate me on gender.
I cut off all my hair – this is one of the last pictures i took of my silly face before the chop! Bye hiding behind my big mop.
Hello radical femme identity. Happiness is a fresh new haircut.
Life is too short to have boring hair.
There is something about a woman with short hair that just screams “power”. Going from long hair to short is not just a change in length, but a change in attitude. If your hair looks good and you have on great shoes, you can get away with anything.
BbPink hair has always been my signature brand colour. I’ve had pink hair for over 8 years now with only a small 2 month horrible stint of black hair. I didn’t expect to see many other coloured locks at Fashion Week, and was super excited when there was!! I love colour; amazing to see to lots of it all around fashion.
Fashion Row ran a piece, Thread.co.nz ran a wee piece too, and I’m sure that’s just only the ones I know about. If your looking at joining the coloured hair trend, here’s some great tips by Little Black Book on Pastel hair.

I’m reporting from a biased point of view. I have pink hair and have had for about 8 years almost continuously. It takes allot of upkeep but has been worth it the entire time. It has turned into quite a trade mark for me, if I changed my hair colour I don’t think anyone would recognise me. (Bonus?!) And like most other things if you look hard enough you can find day to day normative examples of something different. I thought I’d do just that.
MANIC PANIC – Semi Permanent. Also very popular but doesn’t last as long, but brilliant for the more pastel shades rather than highlighter bright.
Special Effects (FX) – Semi Permanent. Big in America and very bright. Comes in larger bottles which is great for those with long hair or who re colour often.
Sunday was JUST as gloomy. By now you might have figured out that I’m a HUGE summer fan.. I hate the cold, wet, windy winter weather and can’t wait for warmth and sunshine all the time. I think I’m not the only one who feels like this either. Sunday one of my other friends popped over and we went nuts with my little camera (hence the less than amazing quality) running around the Ironbank building, trying to stay dry before heading up the road to a local cafe for a Delicious hot toddy! One of those has got to be my favourite “warm-up my insides” drink for winter!! If you haven’t had one – TRY IT!! Its the best thing ever on a cold day!
So after a particularly shitty week I decided to spoil myself. Hair, nails and eyelashes!
Well last night I decided I wanted RADICAL… So I did a straight Rasperry Berret and it was the old darker formula too!
Forgive the crappy cell phone picture but thats my new rasperry pink almost purple verses the bright pink of me in my avitar! I’m hoping it willl fade to a slightly more pinker shade of raspberry.
I think it has more attitude!
Damn my computer just ate half my post – but bonus I learned a bit of how to use LJ more!
Friday – Oh my gosh Penthouse party!
It very large and flash hotel in the central city at the very top of a building, I’m so gutted I didn’t take any photos of the view – it was beautiful! I helped out with the food and learned how to do make cocktails!
I now have my very own PINK COSMO Mmmmm soooo good! There was an entire BATHTUB filled with alcahol!
It was fabulous, as were some of the topless, hotpanted boys there too!
At 1am my Pumpkin carrage arrived and I wisked away to HouseSexy to see all the cool cats! My FIRST weekend out with my new camera! Be prepared for much MASS PHOTO POST to come!
HaleyBerry – Beware of my SUPERPOWERS!!!
NOT THE HAIR!!!
I’ve alot more photos, which I’ll prolly upload to Facebook I think! I’m going to have my business cards done soon, so I’ll be able to direct people to where my photos will be – Most likely – mywebsite!
www.missphloss.com COS ITS AWESOME!!
Satuday – Despite the weather DOOM predicted its was bright, warm and sunny! Weather doom predicters got it way wrong – I defianely wasn’t complaining!!!
Anyway I had an audition at 1pm. I woke up bang on the dot of 10am, and cos I hand’t planned to get up till half past tried to doze for a wee bit. Braincells however took over – there was no way I was gonna ge a wink more. I swear my brain has ADD some times. It thinks of so many thins I even have trouble keeping up! Haha
I practiced my routine for an hour and then got ready – I can’t show you pictures cos the outfit is a surprise for another BIG event coming up!
The Audition was for Hoochy Koochy girls Burlesque troupe! I was very nervous but that makes me perform better!
Most of the girls auditioning were Unitec or AUT Dance diploma students I think, or ballet and ballroom students! I did a very traditional “tease” Burlesque routine to Minnie the Moocher by Cab Calloway. I love the song and know it almost by heart!
I hear back later this week so don’t worry I’ll defiantely be letting everyone know how I go – Yes I have my hopes up, and maybe I’m wrong about it! BUT I DON’T CARE!! Haha
Although some of the other girls might have been more technical dancers, I’m not sure they all understood about TRUE burlesque the history and concept. Any dancer can put together a MoulinRouge / PussyCat Dolls dance routine! 😉
Saturday Evening: PHOTOSHOOT TIME!!
Loulou and I got all dressed up and glam and went out with Flick our trusty Photographer to our awesome Graf-Art location we’d found! Great photos and much funny times ensued!
I’ll post up the photos in a seperate blog!
Haha People pull the funniest faces – I have a normal one, but I’m a meanie and love the LOL value!!!
Sunday- AM A character Training session for getting into Character for modeling at the New Zealand Body Art Awards in June – about three weeks away Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeckkk!! Its going to be awesome!!

Enjoy – 😀 I’ll try upload all the pic to my Website gallery!
