Viking Braids

I’ve been all about braids lately.

I first noticed braids on the show Selling Sunset because real estate agent Heather Rae Young often wears her long blond hair in really outstanding braids.

You can hardly blame me for getting excited about the prospects of having my long hair braided.

So I jumped onto Yelp to find someplace that braids hair and would be willing to style my hair.

These are my inspo pics:


Of course, I could just buy a lace front braided wig (costing around $250) because it may be cheaper than getting my hair braided.

But since I have long blond hair which is perfect for braiding, I’m going to try that first.

The first place I contacted doesn’t do braids.

Le sigh.

The other two places cater to African American hair, but might be willing to do my Viking braids.

Speaking of hair, I get my first haircut in over a year in less than a week and I’m totally excited about it.

I’m going to ask my regular lady if she can do braids because why not?

Maybe she’s as good at braids as she is at color and cuts.

Selling Malevolence

I started watching a show called “Selling Sunset” on Netflix.

It’s about a group of real estate agents working in LA who sell multi-million dollar mansions in very expensive and prestigious neighborhoods.

Naturally, everyone on the show looks like a supermodel and has a wardrobe to make Posh Spice jealous.

I’m not sure why I watched the show, other than to see the outrageous behavior that seems to be allowed in the workplace here. Behavior, which in my workplace would get me fired for being unprofessional and difficult to work with.

For as much as they profess to love each other, they also fight like cats and dogs, saying mean things behind each other’s backs.

Of course the gossipee hears about things that were said and confronts the gossiper.

Generally, there’s some level of bullying and abuse that takes place.

I’ve decided that there’s one person who I love.

Romain Bonnet.

He’s the model husband married to Mary Fitzgerald, who is actually fairly likeable herself.

Romain decided that one of the other agents was a “snake in the grass” and that every time there’s drama, she’s always involved in it.

Of course, it didn’t help that she made fun of his engagement ring to Mary.


Romain decided that he wouldn’t allow a snake to attend his wedding and by golly, he stuck with his decision.

Good for him.

A voice of reason amidst a sea of lunacy.

Tell me I’m not right.


Note:  If you haven’t seen Romain Bonnet, he’s worth googling.  Talk about scrum-dilly-icious!
