June in purchases

In June I got 5 Beyer knitting magazines for 2 € each, dress clips (that are missing some of the stones, which wasn´t mentioned by the seller, but I don´t complain. They are soooo pretty and shiny :)) for 9 € and old photos. Lots of old photos. I got one album in the first auction and a big lot of pictures in the second. The album is okay, nothing that makes me scream Hooray, but the box of pictures was full of little treasures that made me a veeeery happy girl. Just look at the cabinet cards! I actually didn´t know exactly what I was bidding on, both auctions had nearly no pictures. Same goes for the magazines, I´m only keeping them because they feature nice clothing for little M.
All in all I didn´t even spend 40 €, I think. In my book that´s a success.

How do you handle badly described ebay items? I didn´t rate the seller yet as I have no idea what to write.

I´m a mermaid!

I finally came around to dyeing my hair again. After all it had been more than one year as I chickened away from bleaching during pregnancy. My hair was looking horrible. "I don´t care if it´s 30 °C, I´ll wear that hat" horrible. Now at least my hair looks fabulous while the rest of my face sings the song of sleep deprivation ;)

(It´s hard to tell from the picture, the top layer is turquoise, the bottom is green. My two favorites!)
