survival of the fittest

I BEAT SWINE FLU!!!!
Yes, it's true! After a week of moping around the house, doped up on Vicodin, I've finally fully recovered from the horrors of H1N1. Glory is mine! For those who've not been cursed with this plague yet, basically it feels like someone beat you up with a lead pipe (Ms Scarlett, in the ballroom?). But that is over with now, and I can appreciate life in a new light.


And I'll start the appreciation with being named Girl of the Week over at Teen Vogue. This is a huge honour, so I just wanted to say "Why thanks, Teen Vogue!" If you don't usually read their blog, you really ought to. And if you don't usually read their magazine, well then, shame on you.
I'm getting my hair cut on Thursday. I'm thinking I might get the above style, but I'm not sure yet! On the brightside (which I always try to look on), if I leave the above cut unstyled (as face it, probably will happen), I'll roll out of bed looking something like Ms Clara Bow:



Now that's not all bad, is it?

I love both of these cuts, so it doesn't matter which way you do it! Yay fer new haircuts, it's always so exciting. I'm getting one tomorrow and it's going to be one of those visits where I walk in and say "I don't know what the hell I want so do whatever you damn please to it." Except I'll say it nicely.

And congrats to the Teen Vogue feature! I always love their Girl of the Week picks and they did well to pick you!

Yay for beating swineflu. Although I know it must have sucked, i can't help but laugh a little when I hear about someone actually having swineflue. By the way, thanks so much for commenting on my blog. I think it's really cool that you actually comment back. Oh and either haircut would look amazingly cool.

Mel said...

Yay congratulations (on both being Teen Vogue Girl of the Week AND beating swine flu)! Hope you're feeling better! I just saw you on Teen Vogue and I love your style! I too love old Hollywood stars! Haha wouldn't we all love that 20s chic bob like Clara Bow?

DO IT DO IT DO IT.
My friend just got a similar cut (more Louise Brooks-esque)and it looks great.
Go for it.

PSST congrats on Girl of the Week!

& have you seen the movie into the wild? its such a beautiful movie, the shots of alexander supertramp when he's traveling and stuff. i liked the book cause it gave more background, but i liked the movie because it was just so pretty! haha
