After the blonde craving, I bit the bullet and went to the hairdressers. Not quite as blonde as I'd been hoping for, but I still like the change. My stomach slightly dropped when the hairdresser concluded with a blow dry and the words 'I just thought we'd keep it quite subtle for now in case you didn't like it and then we can go even blonder next time.' Indeed. Lovely if I'd planned on coming in again for another colour but the £70 I'm about to give you is pretty much my annual dyeing fund, and this is a one time thing, gat it? Still, tomorrow I leave for a month interrailing around Europe and I'm hoping the Italian heat can coax some barbie hues from my follicles.
