I cannot believe how quickly these past two months have gone by. It's incredible how content I've been; I feel like it's flown by, as if I've just arrived. But now I'm preparing to head back to Morocco, and I'm still a mixture of both super excited and super anxious. On one hand, it's so … Continue reading In a BlaBlaCar: en route to Marseilles
I did it, guys! I cut it and didn't mess it up! And it was so easy. No sectioning, no perfectly straight lines. Just a ponytail and snip! All thanks to the How-to Hair Girl. I attempted to take some photos of the process, but realized quickly that not only that is very difficult, but … Continue reading At the hairdressers: an update on cutting my own hair
Up until a month or two ago, I was totally rocking a sweet messy/hippy/beachy traveller hair style. But now, the 7 months since my last hair cut have caught up with me, and with all the added sun, sweat, heat, and humidity, I am definitely suffering from the “unruly mop” syndrome described here.

I need a serious overhaul, and have no idea where to start. If anybody out there has some experience and suggestions, send them my way!!

After 3.5 months, I came to the point where I could no longer stand the greasy strands, sandy scalp and all around unruly mop I have been sporting on top of my head.
A couple of weeks ago it all came to a head (get it..a head…no pun intended…actually no that is a lie…I thought of that pun way before I even started writing this post)
Anyways, we were back staying in Villas Macondo in Tamarindo, and I knew they had a hair dryer. This meant, for the first time, in a long time, I could check out the status of my bangs and give them a trim.
Now why on earth would I need to trim my bangs when they haven’t seen the light of day for months AND will likely not be seen again for the remainder of the trip?
Sanity, pure sanity. As…
