Hair Donation & Liebster Award

by - Saturday, October 11, 2014

I have been terrible, especially with updating on what's been going on with me. 

Before I jump into my little updates on what's been happening, I want to thank everyone who commented on my posts the last few weeks, especially the one with my Dad's 1 year memorial service. I cannot tell you how much love I felt and how much it just helped the wounds. So much love back to you guys. xx

So as things go... I still haven't decided which event to sign up for. Somehow I think I am quicker going to go with the Buddy walk - just because of what a great cause it benefits..... plus, there's always next year for the Kaleidodash. :)

As my 33rd birthday approaches, it has caused me to think of change.
A few years ago, I decided to grow my hair in hopes it gets long enough to [Shave] my head bald and donate to charity. Well... of course, I always chickened out before the scissors touched my hair.

Now, as you know, I have witness first hand with my Dad that cancer is a f**king bitch, excuse the language... there is no other way to put it. I saw this strong man become depressed, crying, weeping in pain, I saw him fastly crumbling. Although my Dad never reached the point that he lost his hair, I felt I had to do this for him... so I did.

I will be donating my locks to a cancer society <3

My new hair :)
Something in me got so brave today and I felt really good. I love my new hair and I love where my old hair is going to go. :)

Liebster Award

I was nominated by the stylish and lovely Sylvia at The Outfit Lab and I am so excited. I have never been nominated for this before, so I shall give it a whirl and then tag 10 friends with my 10 questions. Happy Weekend! :) 

1. Why did you start your own blog? I originally started to showcase my poetry and writings, but then it turned into something more personal. 

2. If you got a million dollars and had to spend it (or part of it) on something impractical and/or frivolous, what would it be? My own in-home theater. 

3. Of all the things you have accomplished in your life, what are you the most proud of? My brother found a wounded cat on our street. She had been hit by a car, her spine damaged and her jaw was broken. I took her in and with help from some friends was able to pay for her medical bill. They screwed her jaw up and gave me medication for her. I made a huge enclosure for her at home and nursed her and took care of her for 7 weeks until she was better. I couldn't tell you how I felt saving her life.

4. What is your dream job? Something that allows me to travel and see the world whilst writing about it and taking photographs. :) 

5. What's your favorite food? Italian yum yum ! 

6. If you could change one historical event, which would it be? The Holocaust.

7. What fictional character would you want to be? Little Lulu, minus the mischievous personality. :)

8. If you had to travel back in time to prehistoric times, what three things would you bring and why? 
1) Camera - To capture what life was like then
2) A tent equipped with a bed of course - nothing beats a comfy bed after a long day running from Dinosaurs. 
3) A family member or friend - Don't really think anyone would want to go alone, ya know. 
9. What superpower do you want?  I want 2.... To be able to Teleport and to heal people's illnesses. 

10. What do you miss most about being a kid? There was nothing as boredom. As kids we always found things to do, whether it was make mud pies, or build our own box cart, there was never a dull moment or technology to mess up that creativity. 

So, I am suppose to tag 10 blogs with under 200 followers. Please forgive me but I am still new to blogging and gaining followers, so I tagged who I wanted. :)

                                         My 10 Questions :                                                    

1. If you were giving a chance to live anywhere in the world, where would it be & why ?

2. What is your most memorable childhood memory?

3. What is your least favourite food?

4. Have you ever thought about adopting a child ?

  1. Thank you much for nominating me... that is very sweet. I won't be blogging for a week or so, so I am taking the questions and answering them on my Google+ page, it is quicker for me that way :)

    I am sorry about your dad ... that is so hard to have dealt with. My oldest daughter did this one time, donated her hair, I was so proud of her, her hair is beautiful and thick. I can't donate my hair due to my coloring it but I would if they wanted it :)

    1. Thanks for still answering them Launna :)

      And you can also donate coloured hair, so you should look into it. :)

  2. Really lovely and inspiring post. :)

  3. wauw wat tof dat je dat hebt gedoneerd! je nieuwe kapsel staat je prachtig!

  4. Love to know those things about you.

    You're a brave and generous one
    for contemplating of donating your hair to charity and get bald for a few weeks
    of course hair grows but still I can't imagine myself doing it... at least not yet.

    1. You know I said the same for a long time. I love long hair, but I just felt so brave whilst doing it. And after a haircut (if it is shorter than I would want) I would cry... but I am so in love with my short hair and I think the comfort stems from the reason. :)

  5. You look gorgeous! And, thank you sooo much for nominating me for the Liebster. :)

  7. Hi Miss! You look amazing! Thanks for nominating me for the Liebster Award! It's my third!

  8. Pretty hair.

  9. love this babe!!

  10. Your hair looks phenomenal! And it's AWESOME that you donated what you got chopped off! :D
    Thank you for the nomination, girl!

  11. You are utterly fantastic for having donated your hair and I really do think you're incredibly brave for doing so in memory of your dad. Your Liebster answers were so interesting to read through! Although I don't have a cat of my own (queue the violins), I'm a massive cat lover and so how you saved the cat's life is truly heartwarming :) Your dream job sounds like heaven and I'm pretty much in the same boat as you on that one! Thanks ever so much for nominating me for the Liebster Award, I've actually already done the award a couple of times now and so I'll be calling it a day on that one, however I can't stress enough how lovely it was to be nominated by you - coming across such lovely people was not at all a component I had anticipated when I started blogging earlier this year! :) Hope you have a fantastic week ahead full of Italian food and maybe even teleporting? ;) haha!

    1. Hahaha trust me, cats are my least favourite animal as they are so independent and I can't play wild with them like I do with my dog. But... ya know, when an animal needs help, my heart becomes completely open. :)

  16. That's so amazing that you're doing this for your dad. I lost one of my dear friends to cancer and it's still hard to deal with. By cutting off your hair in remembrance of your dad is such a beautiful thing to do. Wish you all the best.

  17. Wow! You are really inspiring. By cutting off your hair in remembrance of your dad, you make a statement and you show the world! You are incredible and your new hair looks amazing :)

  18. That haircut is perfect for you! It looks young and fresh :) I have almost the same hair length at the moment. I wish mine would curl like yours though... Thank you for nominating me! I've already answered the Liebster Award on my blog before, so I will give you my answers here:

    1. I LOVE living in Berlin, but I would very much like to try living in Paris or London though. Maybe for a year or so. I love the vibe of a big city.

    2. When I was a child my mom used to do a magic trick on my birthday and I was always very impressed :)

    3. Anything with caraway. Oh how I hate it! It can literally ruin any kind of food.

    4. I am not really that far with life-planning yet.

    5. The only vacation I ever went on with my mom. We went to Tunisia and it was amazing! Just the right mix of exotic, oriental atmosphere and luxury, relaxation on a beautiful beach.

    6. I really don't know. But if I could live inside a movie it would be Amelié. I can watch that movie again and again and never ever get tired of it.

    7. I am good at keeping up spirits and spreading good mood in unexpected negative situations.

    8. Different kinds of quizzes. I like to play them while on the train to and from work. I tell my self it will expand my knowledge. Really it's just a time-killer.

    9. Chili cheese tops. Fried cheese for the win!

    10. Oh yes. I am in the middle of a happy and satisfied flow at the moment! :)

    1. Thanks for answering my questions !! :) I love Amelie !! <3
