I had fun with my Polaroid the day I spent with my goddaughter Astrid during her pre-birthday cut & colour at the spectacular Bloodline Parlour! Rebecca was her stylist (who is also mine & a few other bloggers 'round these parts) & Astrid had her hair coloured a rich coppery dark brown with fantastical turquoise/green highlights. I spent the time with Astrid's mom (my friend) Michele; I was given a wonderfully thoughtful birthday gift I got to open at the Parlour & hung out with a very cool dog named Sweep. I also partook in a yummy latte and croissant. All the while being a part of Astrid's 16th birthday celebrations! After the fun with hair, we went next door to the fab Sympathy for the Rebel to check out the vintage dresses. I had a great conversation with the owner, Ryan, about Polaroids & The Impossible Project. Then, on the way home, we stopped into Enticing Cakes to buy a bunch of cupcakes! Honestly, one of the best days ever, with 2 of my favourite people. It was a day worthy of taking Polaroids. I just wish I took a Polaroid of the cupcakes!
