It Isn't Pho Me + Hair Dye Bust

Yesterday, I met up for lunch with one of my best friends at a Vietnamese restaurant by her house. Pho has been on my list of foods to try for awhile now and I was curious to see what all the hype was about. The restaurant was nice, as were their Thai teas. But, as soon as the waitress brought out the pho, I knew it wasn't for me. I mean, it looked great. But I knew after the first bite that it wasn't something I was going to be crazy about. I'll give it another try in the future.

After lunch, we went back to Amanda's apartment so that she could dye my hair. I've been growing out this mop for months now and it's finally past my boobies, which was one of the items on my dream list. I didn't want to cut it just yet, but I was craving change. I figured dying it would be the way to go (plus, I haven't dyed it since last September). Well, let's just say it was a bust! It took the red out of my hair and lightened it a tad bit, but that's about it. It wasn't even photo worthy since it looks ... the same. Amanda informed me that I should have gotten a few shades lighter since my hair was dark (oops). So, maybe I'll try again in a few weeks and maybe I won't. I have yet to decide.

(and yes, I may have picked the color based on the name)


  1. I'm sad you didn't like pho. I love it. I've never had chicken pho though... just the kind you add the raw beef to.

  2. I've had the hardest time dying my hair lately. I feel like I end up dyeing it 3 times within a week, so healthy for my hair lol!
