Confessions of a Bad Blogger

I’m awfully sorry. I’ve been a bad blogger lately. It’s just that I’ve felt like I’ve been stuck on the same page. I could’ve written about my travels. Did that already, on the other blog. You can read here about my wonderful night in Paris a few weeks back. I could’ve written about me cleaning […]

It’s a Ginger Thing

“Goddamned you have thick hair. Go away, I can’t stand looking at you… No, wait. Come back! Can I touch it?” The Finnish way of giving a compliment. Clearly. About five people out of five around turned around to see what the shouting was all about. I just sighed and tilted my head. Mumbled something […]

A Woman Who Cuts her Hair Is About to Change her Life *

Today was the big day. I did exactly what I said I would: I sat down and asked for 10-15 cm off, layered (as my hair is so thick and will be both sleek and curly at the same time without layers), and with some sort of fringe. Jussi said Hrmh. Then he cut almost […]

Full Throttle Forward

March kicked in, now I’m busy being busy… Which I really like, am not complaining at all. Well. Except that my back is in a terrible condition after spending too much time pushed down in my old sofa. On top of that I think I need a new bed, my futon is simply too hard, […]

The Jury Has Reached a Verdict (The Fringe Case)

  Thank you for participating in my little poll, commenting in various forms, and sending pictures and whatnots. It’s been a fun way of both getting ideas on what to do with the do, and surviving the last winter month! Most of you seem to prefer me in a fringe (over 50% in total when […]

To Fringe or Not to Fringe…

You funny people, you amuse me… Meeting people over lunch or a drink these last few days, the first thing they will do is look at my hair (if it’s in a bun) and ask if I’ve done it yet.. The answer, good people, is no. It’s still two weeks until March, and I will […]

I Need a Haircut!

Over the years I’ve shown you a fair share of my hair here on Management by Chia, and as I know many of my readers are people who know me in real life as well, I’m going to do a little experiment. Once this hibernation ends, come March, I need to do something about the […]

Trial and Error: Ditching Shampoo

Seeing as I’ve received a fair share of comments on my hair the past two days, I thought it as good a time as any to recap what’s happened since I went to the hairdresser’s last (in October). Going completely no-poo seemed a bit too extreme, so I settled for some sort of low-poo. The […]

Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.

When you have nothing to write about, post a selfie. – Old blogging saying. Selfie is apparently the new in-word. I mean, even Obama does it. At funerals. I’m sticking to my own mirror at least. Hello from Ms Hibernating. I’m doing fine, thanks for asking. Have been extremely silent lately, my apologies. But you […]

Only 2% of the world has red hair, so basically I’m a unicorn

People have been asking me what kind of epiphanies I’m talking about in my last post, and what can I say, other than I of course had it coming, stating such things. Blogging is sometimes like Bambi on ice. You think you’re Thumper, [words] gracefully flowing, but you don’t realise your legs are too long […]

a hippie in the making?

A week ago I threw away my antiperspirant in exchange for an organic deodorant I bought in Covent Garden. I had reached a point where I simply could not find enough reasons to use the icky roll-on one more time. I have changed brands and types (sticks, roll-ons, sprays) so many times I’ve lost count, […]

london calling

“There’s no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one.” – Jerome K. Jerome i know i usually don’t write two posts in one day, but after my short, and somewhat irritated note this morning, i felt i needed to let […]
