Fresh Hair

My vitamins have finally kicked in and my hair has been growing like crazy. I took your suggestions and cut it shorter (and  had it bleached). Here's the new do (without product and styled on the short side - longer strands are tucked behind my ear):

ignore the clutter, plz.
 This was 'fresh' from the salon, so there is no product in it all. I think the color is too yellow, but I can correct that easily with a few doses of purple shampoo. OR.... if all else fails, I'll put my 'white lady' toner on it tomorrow. With a bit of color adjusting and styling products, my hair should resemble something like this (with a little extra around the ears for styling options): 

Did I mention I'm going to ROME next weekend????!! I am beyond excited. I've never been to Italy, so the opportunity to visit this gorgeous city on a weekend was too good of a chance to pass up. 

This trip should be a little bit easier than London since there will only be 3 of us. As much as I loved London, it was tricky to accommodate 7 people's personal agendas and varying budgets.

It's 97 degrees in Rome! Can you believe that? I'm a Northern girl, so I will probably be molting the entire trip.   

Blogger help - I'll need more tips on where to go again. Especially for food. I hear you can get ripped-off with bad American-ized Italian food in the tourist zones.

This is a huge city, so besides the Vatican and the Coliseum - where else should I head?? Where is the best boutique shopping at?

Great haircut and it doesn't look too yellow in the pcitures! As for Rome, try to avoid the touristical areas, just take a ride in the normal neighbourhoods! And enjoy the local little restaurants! Depends also in which area your hotel is! But great destination, you'll love it. As for shopping stay around the Fontana di Trevi you'll know why :-)

Love your hair!!! and so excited for your Rome trip. I was there 2 years ago and it was amazing. The only tip I can give is to never eat from an 'English' menu. I wish I could tell you specific restaurants to eat at, but I don't remember anymore. Just avoid the touristy areas and you'll be fine, I'm sure.
