I got married!!

I’m so excited to finally share these pictures with you!

Sage and I got married at the City Hall in Toronto and it was such an amazing day! I wish I had recorded the ceremony because it all just happened so fast! Let me start from the beginning.

I woke up earlier because I needed to go get supplies to make my bouquet. Yes, I made my own bouquet the morning of the ceremony. Classic Fay. I also had no idea what I was doing and was slightly freaking out because the internet decided it wasn’t gonna work so I couldn’t get ideas on google. Luckily it was the beginning of the month and I had plenty of data, so I could get a few ideas and after a few failures I had my bouquet!

I got my toenails done the day before and had to fix them myself because apparently people don’t know you’re supposed to cover the entire nail with polish??? I digress. And did my fingernails the night before to make sure I’d have time to fix them in the morning if it was needed. I washed my hair so I’d have fresh looking curls and I realized I was late to get my makeup done by my makeup artist friend! and I low key wish I had done it myself. Not that it wasn’t good, by I’m so used to the way I do it that I felt strange… The plan was to do a simple hairdo but I didn’t have time for that, haha. Classic Fay².

I took the cab three times that day! I never do that because public transit is always much cheaper and better for the environment, but if there was a day it was okay to splurge it was my fucking wedding day!! So there I was in the City Hall with my soon to be husband and my photographer friend (Ori Carmona, who’s AMAZING). The City Hall is gorgeous, so there were lots of people taking pictures there!

My friends arrived and we went in to sign the papers before the ceremony. My dear friend N was kind enough to FaceTime my mom so she could watch the ceremony! It was so sweet ❤️

The ceremony felt waaaay more official than we expected. Of course Sage and I forgot our vows at home LOL so we had to make it up on the spot and I feel like mine was stupid, but his was perfect. I love that man so much!

We then went to a vegan place that was gorgeous! Rosalinda‘s staff was fantastic and we had a wonderful time at the restaurant! They served us family style and we got to try pretty much the entire menu!! If you’re ever in Toronto go there!! Everything was amazing and all the non-vegans were impressed. 😉

I didn’t take pictures of the food because I was too busy being happy and having a good time, sorry. 💖

Anyways, I’m a married woman now!! It still feels weird, hahaha. Sage and I always giggle when we refer to each other as “husband/wife”. It feels so official! We’re so happy!!

Sorry about the watermarks on the pictures! I wanted to make sure they wouldn’t get stolen so I made them obnoxious and I didn’t want to pay to remove the message generated by the app, so it’s extra obnoxious, hahaha. You can see more on my Instagram too! *hint hint wink wink*

I loved the pictures so much! We’ll be getting a few of them printed and framed for sure!

This post has so many exclamation marks!!! It’s about the most exciting day, so I can’t help it, hahaha.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I promise I’ll be posting more often now ❤️



Flaming hair for the wedding!

Hi everyone!! I’m really excited today because I’m getting married in three days!!!!! It’s just a small city hall wedding, but it still means so much to me and I’m so happy! We’re going to a vegan Mexican place after the ceremony and I’m also so excited to try the food 😍 (are emojis okay?? Back in my days we’d type “*0*~” to express our feelings, hahaha).

My roots were super long and my hair pretty faded because I was waiting to do my hair the week of the wedding so I could have it fresh for the pictures!

I have a YouTube video showing how I dye my hair, so I decided to blog about it this time! I f*ked up a bit because I forgot to check if I had hair dye before I started the whole process and turns out I only had a tiny little bit left of the Splat (luscious raspberries) dye I’d been using to get my flamin’ red curls.

I went on an adventure to try and find it but was unsuccessful, so I had to do with Manic Panic. I thought I’d need two containers, but they only had one in Pillarbox Red, so I got a Wildfire (which is closer to an orange tone) to make it up. In the end I didn’t need two containers *eye roll*, but I had already mixed the colors up so I ended up with a brighter red than I expected. It still looks good, so I’m happy!

Just an addendum: I think it’s obvious, but I might as well mention that all products I use are vegan and cruelty-free.

Faded red and bleached roots!

So here’s how my hair was looking once I realized I didn’t have hair dye (ha!). It looks bright but it’s actually very faded. You’ll see what I mean by the end of the post! I should have made the roots lighter, but since I’ve been dying my hair a darker red, I didn’t feel the need to get my hair super light blond. I used the bleach that comes with the Splat hair dye, but I usually use the powder and developer by Ion.

The dyes

Here’s the pillarbox red and wildfire over the little leftover I had of luscious raspberries (I can never not laugh when I say the name of this dye). Note that they look weirdly brighter on the second picture, they are definitely closer to the first picture’s color.

After the application

Here’s how it looks after I’ve coated the whole hair. I always make sure that all the hair is saturated to avoid missing any spots. I use a fine comb to comb each strand of hair after I apply the hair dye to even it out. Sage was actually the one who did the back of my head this time! If that isn’t love, than I don’t know what is! ❤️

My beautiful shower cap head

Manic panic recommends using a shower cap, so I used one because I was a little worried that a lighter red wouldn’t cover the roots very well.

The murder scene

After about 40 minutes (the recommended time is half an hour, but I was distracted by my phone and not really worried about leaving the color longer because it won’t damage the hair), I rinsed it off. No shampoo or conditioner needed.

After the deed was done

Here’s how it looked fresh out of the shower and right after I styled it. I also have videos on how I cut and style my hair if you’re curious or bored!

The result

And here’s the day after! Hair dry and styled (and makeup on!). I’m actually very happy with the result and I’m thinking the wedding pictures will look amazing!

I’ll make sure to share them here! 💖

Hope this post was helpful to those who wanna venture in this self-hair-dying-world.

Ps: I have to say I was really upset for having messed up and forgotten to get hair dye for such an important day, but I’ve been trying to be more positive and I think the result was actually very good!

I should probably get a bouquet…? I need a manual 😩

See you soon!
