The clock has just clicked over to 12.02am on Wednesday so that means that later today I will officially be in Texas!! I’m so excited beyond words, I feel like my brain is going to explode.
It’s going to be five days of sun, music, parties and good times. The flight out of New York tomorrow afternoon connects with another one in Georgia (I will be in the actual South!!!!) that flies to Austin. I get in just before midnight but since I plan on catching up on sleep on the flights down, I will be ready for whatever happens as soon as I hop off.
I plan on taking a lot of photos and I promise I will try and keep track of all my adventures to write about on here once I get back on Monday afternoon!

Over the weekend I decided it was time to dye my hair. It wasn’t a decision I came to lightly, its one that I’d been thinking about for quite some time. I guess it shows how shallow I am to spend so much precious time and use of brain cells over such a simple thing as the colour of my hair but that was really part of the problem. I don’t think the colour of my hair should define me and after roughly 6 years of white-blond hair it really was time for a change.
Standing in the hair dye aisle at Duane Reade I contemplated becoming a red head for a few seconds and then thought maybe a dark brunette would be a good idea before I talked myself out of it and settled on a trusty ash blond colour. When my hair starts to grow out hopefully my natural colour and the dye will match almost perfectly (fingers crossed).
I was pretty apprehensive as I washed the dye out and towel-dried my hair but luckily the end result wasn’t tear-inducing. I debuted the new look to my friends later that night when we all met up to go out and I got approvals all round. Not as many weird old Mexican men on the street still whistle as I walk past but I’m pretty sure they’re not my target demographic anyway!
PS. it’s been snowing here in New York for over 15 hours straight and it’s not meant to stop for another day and a bit. I heard someone on the radio refer to it as a ‘snow-a-cane’ this morning. The snow isn’t really sticking when it hits the ground though, instead it’s forming slushie puddles that make taking more than two steps outside both dangerous and extremely time-consuming. Plus all my shoes seems to have cracks in the soles which results in wet socks. Totally not impressed Mother Nature, can Spring please arrive soon??? It’s less than 20 days until I’m in Austin, TX for SXSW so at least I’m (99%) guaranteed good weather then.
