not your typical girl

Yes, I'm a girl, but I'm not your typical girl. I was never the type to get up at 6AM to do my hair and makeup before I left the house... nor was I the girl that wore heels and dresses everywhere no matter where I was going. I'm actually just the opposite - I roll out of bed in the morning, put my hair up in a clip, put some clothes on, squeeze into my sneakers and I'm out the door! I never truly do my hair and I rarely wear makeup - I buy a lot of it, but I never seem to use it. If I do my makeup, it's normally a special occasion or I just want to feel pretty for the day - everyone has those days, right?

So yesterday I ended up feeling quite unattractive and wanted to give myself a little makeover, if you want to call it that. I got a pedicure, a manicure, eyebrows waxed (these are part of my normal routine), but I didn't feel pretty enough. This will show you how pathetic I really am - I ended up looking up videos of how to curl my hair. I do have to admit though that there are some really good how-to videos for hair and makeup all over the internet. Anyway, I found a bunch and decided to try it....

And here's how it turned out....

Just kidding! For real now.... here's the result...

The curler slipped out of my hand - I burnt my neck!! With half of my head curled, I stopped. Maybe I'll try again another day.

Curling irons are evil I tell you.... EVIL!


  1. Hahah, your illustrations really made me laugh! Sorry about that burn though. :)


  2. I'm like you. I sleep as late as I can before I absolutely have to get up. And I can honestly say that I have also burnt my neck before! It sucks! I had people asking me all day what happened or my friends asking me why I had a hickey. I hope your day gets better! Happy Tuesday! :)


  3. At least you didn't bonk yourself in the head with it while hot.....yeah I'm queen of that......Ouchie to the umpteenth power with that one!

  4. girl after my own heart. i prefer yoga pants and a comfy tank, hair un-styled and no makeup : )

    cute blog - i'm your newest follower

  5. anyone that leaves the house at 6am fully made up and walks around in heels everywhere is crazy. i can barely walk across my bedroom in heels :)

    thanks for the comment x

  6. cute drawings :) im not a get-all-done-up kinda girl either. I prefer to be all-natural <3

  7. I have done the same thing too! Except I burned my ear instead of my neck. Curlers might actually be evil! But after years of burning myself (and burning my hair) I've decided it's worth all that pain! I love the outcome!!

  8. I'm not very girly either. And I totally agree with you about curling irons!

  10. I love your little drawings! lol hahaha that sounds like something that would most definitely happen to me.

    thanks for commenting my blog, btw. Let's follow each other!


  11. hahaha, love the illustrations! I have really straight hair and would LOVE to get it to curl but it just doesn't seem to be wanting the same things as I do for it. Boo.

    I'm totally that type of girl too. I did go thru a phase where I would dress up all the time... that didn't last long. Took up too much time and for what? To impress someone? Like I care! :)

  12. I'm jealous of your pedicure, a manicure, eyebrow waxing! I've never had my eyebrows waxed and to be honest never had a pedicure in my life! I am a girly girl for sure, but I've never been good at curling my own hair either! Your story sounds quite like some of mine! haha it's so funny, I love the illustrations too! I love your posts.


  13. Hahaha (:
    Oh im sorry!
    Better luck next time dear!
    You'll get it.


  14. Oh dang, I've done that before! Your blog is soooo cute!

    I'm now following along! Yay!

  15. damn!!! that's why i prefer the flat iron haha good luck next time sweetheart! :)


  16. You are so funny! Another funny thing is that I am like you in that I do not always get all dolled up despite my love for beauty and fashion. I just sometimes do not feel like doing my hair or applying makeup for the day. However, there are days when I sometimes do! Thanks for checking out my blog! It is greatly appreciated! I am now following! I love your blog!

  28. Once upon a time, I had a hicky on my neck. My friend's advice was to say I burned myself with my curling iron. I thought no one would believe that. Now I know a curling iron burn is possible on your neck. Thanks. :)

  29. oh my the curling iron is HOT! I've burned my scalp and neck a few times... now I just get my hair chemically straightened and don't bother lol

It was pretty neat and nice :D I'd like to try waxing..and you are like me. rarely wear make up unless its for a special occasion but i buy them constantly :P bad habit i tell ya..and sorry about the burn, it does take practice.
