If only it were warm

Now that we're through with Christmas and almost in the new year, it's time to start planning summer holidays! I dream of a warm spot and a buzzing city. Where should I go?

My options as of now:

The City of Angels - L.A

Viva la Revolucion! - Cuba

Comments, tips, words of warning? I better start saving up!

Early Christmas presents for Moi

My parents are hippies, they don't believe in consumerism and all that crap. That means no Christmas presents, boo! Actually, it's a very good thing since I don't have to fake liking something they took extra effort in getting me. And I don't feel bad treating myself to a little something. So this year Santa brought me an amazing new hair dye that is completely commitment free.

Kevin Murphys Color Bug is my new love. It comes in three colors, pink, purple and orange. I got the purple. It resembles an eyeshadow, a hard powdery substance that you rub in your hair. First put some leave in conditioner, wax, dry shampoo, hair spray, whatever you use in your hair and then rub in the color for that staying power. For a lighter shade, use leave in conditioner, and for darker, hair wax is the best. Then just wash your hair and the dye comes out. As simple as that. Blondes might have more trouble getting the color out, but it shouldn't take more than a couple of washes to return to your real shade. Look out for that lavender haired weirdo out and about in Aberdeen in January.

'Tis the season for winter fashion

Winter's a drag. If I'm already freezing indoors, experiencing the weather outside is not on the top of my to do list. It's dark and gloomy and depressing. But why mope around when you can take full advantage of the season! Think about it this way, it's dark: channel your inner magpie and dress up in metallic shades and oh so shimmery sequins. It's cold: bundle up in a (faux!) fur coat and a lovely pair of heeled boots. It can be done, ladies! Find your inspiration here.

Plans for Spring

Thanks everyone for a lovely Autumn term with AUFS! No rest for the weary, it's time to start planning next term. This term started out slow and steady, but now it's time to shake up Aberdeen and make AUFS a name known to all student households. Plans are made for a vintage tour, a private film screening, gigs and oh so much partying! Of course let's not forget that Fashion show coming up at the end of next term! We are always needing help for loads of different things (this blog, for example) and we promise it's fun! So hit us up with ideas, a helping hand or any comments you have! Cheers!

I'll leave you with a soothing song this chilly Monday evening.
