Normally I pay around 80 dollars to have my hair cut and colored.
Money has been a little tight lately so, I decided to do my own color.
Box colors dont work real well for me, as I have hard to color gray. sssshhhh, thats our little secret!!!
However, I decided to take my chance, and I think it turned out pretty good.
A little brassy, but I had no toner to put on it, I have some natural reddish undertones anyway.
I know I will probably have to touch up my roots or do another color in about 2 weeks, my hair grows fast.
But I am happy I did it.
I figure since I had it cut in early July, I should be able to save myself the expense until at least October!!!
One win and one loss.
I received my shoes today, the pair of shoes that took me weeks and weeks of debate and research and rethinking to finally settle upon.
And I am sadly disappointed. I ordered a 9 wide, since I was told by the woman who fitted me for my orthotics, that I would benefit from a wide shoe, since they are better suited for flat feet and orthotics.
I ordered from Zappos and thank goodness they have free shipping and free returns.
They sent me a size 9 medium width.
I can wear them, and if I chose to not use my orthotics, I would probably enjoy them.
But right now with the continued issue with my foot, I cant risk that.
I need the support.
So, the shoes were way to narrow and tight.
Back they go and back I go to the research board.
Next time I am going to go for the New Balance or Brooks. I wonder if anyone here has tried the Saucony brand???? I keep seeing those and wonder if they would work well for my foot needs/
Also, next time I am going to phone in the order and make sure the person on the phone understands and reads back to me my order.
I wish I had more access to real shoe stores so I could try them on in a wide in the brand I want.
But my access is limited, mostly all we have are Nike or Skechers in medium sizes.
So, I will start again.
Disappointed to say the least, and just glad I didnt order the more expensive pair and get a size I didnt order.
I have had a long day and tomorrow if grocery shopping and going with honey to renew his license.
I believe I will turn in earlier than usual tonight.

    Hair looks great! Hope you get the right shoe soon. I can only spring for Walmart generics right now, so all I can do is NOT recommend those. :) Still hoping for good news/ solid answers on your foot.
