A whole new me

Well i have been thinking for a while about going back to brunette and on Saturday i finally did it, and i LOVE it yay :)  The hairdresser picked a brown as close to my natural as he could get and then 2 blondes, Caramel and another shade. So i am brunette but not dark as i don't suit dark at all. Though to be honest i think it looks lighter here in the pictures than it does IRL. Oh and looking at my eyes they still look tired but I'm feeling much better today, i even got my make up on, and went into town and i didn't even need a nap yay!!
