I’m not even kidding. I have been to Walmart everyday this week except for Monday. I always forget something. Or perhaps it would be more fair to say that no matter what I just bought, tomorrow I will need something else, and unfortunately, Walmart has pretty much everything and the lowest prices, so back I go.
So, the most exciting thing I did this week is color my hair. I’ve never done it before. (Well, there was that one time in high school when I let my friend try to color my hair with one of those temporary party colors--true red!--but it didn’t work.) However, in the last year, I’ve been getting more and more grays, and it was becoming increasingly more difficult to hide them.
I’ve actually had the box of Natural Instincts for almost a year, and it’s taken me this long to get up the nerve to use it. Since I’m a complete novice, I was a little afraid that it would turn out badly. Last time I got my hair cut, I asked my stylist for tips. She said use semi-permanent, so it uniformly washes out and doesn’t leave roots, and don’t pay attention to what the color is called, go by the pictures.
And now for the reveal.

Who needs Everest when they've got this kind of excitement?
