Well I'm not a natural blonde, but you know the other thing they say about blondes, and it's true - definitely more fun!! :lol:

Well I've been blonde for the last 16 years, until I went to Superdrug just before Xmas to get my usual stuff to touch up my roots. AAAARRRGGGHHH!!! Couldn't believe it, they'd discontinued the shade I've been using for years! Had to try a different shade, and it turned my hair a horrible ashy-grey - it was 'orrible, 'orrible, 'orrible!!! :evil: I felt so dull and drab, I decided to go for it and have a complete change, so now I'm a warm, chestnutty auburn, and I have to say I'm quite happy with it, it suits my skin-tone, as I'm naturally pale. Maybe I can wear yellow now, as well. It never suited me when I was blonde, but I've always loved yellow in all its shades.

Love Beantighe

my wife does a little colouring to keep them grey roots at bay.
about 20 years ago she couldnt get the brand she used i think at the time they change the colour?
she had to try another one but it turned out green :roll: this would look great now :lol: but 20 years ago it would have been strange :roll:
for the next 15 years she was a loverly mahogany/purple that reflected in the light until they changed the colour yet again. now she has gone a deep brown
my fav was the mahogany it looked great :wink:

Hey, SD, you've just given me an idea! Wouldn't David Essex have made a perfect Yul when he was younger? I used to think he was gorgeous then - what a pity he's too old now (tried to think of a nice way to put it, but brain's gone dead, lol!)

hmm, torn between Beltane and summer solstice. i love betane because its the first signs of leaving the depression of winter which im not too fond of, and i love the beauty that springs up around us at this time, which you appreciate so much more having not seen the beauty of spring all year. however if stonewylde were real, itd have to be the solstice so i could share the earth magic with Yul and experiece how that kind of power must feel.

I don't know where I have been but I had missed this thread totally until Christie posted on it today!!! :? :lol:

I was torn between Beltane (new beginnings/sap rising (in both senses)/the lovely greeness of the trees adn grass etc), Samhain as it has always fascinated me and I would like to forge deeper links with my psyche and the otheworld and Yule because I love to snuggle up in the winter and read books and learn and spend time out in the crisp coldness just knowing that the light is to return... in the end I chose beltane for the wonder and glory of nature in her prime!

As to hair - mine has been many colours over the years - blonde, ginger, red, very red, black, dark brown and pink! It is now a shade of mid brown/red as I have had it cropped the better to grow my silver through, as I fancy seeing how many grey hairs I really have a my best friend bet that I would not do it! If there is not enough, I shall dye the body of my hair again and have the wings by my ears (which are silver) dyed more silver so I have a morticia look going on :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anything is better than mouse!!

Oh honey, you've painted such a vivid picture there I can just imagine you! :D

A word of warning, hon - there's a woman here (an older woman, admittedly) who has for years coloured her hair in just the way you describe, dark reddish with white wings, and I'm afraid to say she looks more like Uncle Fester! :lol: :oops: But then you're nowhere near her age, are you, and I'm sure you're much better looking - (creep, creep!!)

Don't throw missiles at me, will you? *ducks*
