So the above is day two of my Wash & Go. It was snapped yesterday morning after taking down this pineapple–
I don’t pull the hair above my ears into the pineapple because the curls fall flat, they pull straight and it leads to disaster. #KnowYourTextures
My hair in the back is thicker, tightly coiled and prone to shrinkage. The hair in the front is finer, hangs longer and has an s wave pattern not a coil pattern. So even without this bomb ass cut, my hair would dry in the shape of a bob—long in the front and short in the back.
Check out the view from yesterday, May 22, Rio Day 9–
Hubby turned me onto Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods a while back and his Rio episode inspired yesterday’s excursion to Porcão- a carnivore’s dream. They should’ve called it Pork-Cow ’cause that’s exactly what’s coming to your table on a stick. You pay one price for access to their decadent buffet that includes cold and hot appetizers, salads, seafood and creative sushi rolls. But the real show starts when you take your seat. They give you one of these–
It’s a little paper circle, red on one side, green on the other. If you give ’em the green light you’ll be welcoming an incessant string of waiters bearing the most beautiful cuts of perfectly grilled meat you’ve ever seen. From lamb to veal to sirloin to chicken hearts… it was damn amazing. They walk over, give you a closer look and if you’re still interested, they’ll carve a slice or two off for you. The best part is trying to glean what animal the meat came from and which part. At one point I resorted to charades (flapping my arms like a chicken) and moo’ing like a cow, to which the waiter with the rump steak responded with a smile, ‘sim, mooooo’!
As an aside–I’ve yet to see a chicken wing here. I told my dad about it and he said, ‘I suppose they send all the hearts to the Black folk in Brazil and send us all the wings!’
They whipped it up on the spot. And of course they brought out 2 spoons… so I had to partake.
You know you couldn’t do this in the States, let a random tourist walk
up to you asking to take your picture. Not happening… #ImTooGrown #BoutToPutThisGirlOnTwitter
what the sea spray did to my hair… had to puff it!
