~The Beach and New Hair Colour~


Today I thought I would go down to the beach for a dip
The weather is just glorious at the moment here
Above is a pic of the beach front on 


looking to the left


and to the right
The water was just a little coolish but boy once I got in oh so refreshing......
and all without the January crowds!!!
These were just basically point and shoot as I couldn't see the image due to the sun shining!!!


On Wednesday I thought I would have a treat and freshen up my hair with some purple and chocolate and have a new style......and the result I am soooo happy with it
Best thing I ever did was to stop colouring every 6-8 weeks and just have some highlights put in once a season!!!

Thank you so much everyone for all your heartfelt comments
I love to read them all but sometimes I just can't get back to everybody due to commitments to JoJo and daily life but I do truly appreciate them all 

Now it's time for the weekend and who knows, perhaps another swim if this weather hangs in

Happy Weekend......Love Dzintra xo

Hi Dzintra,
Just been catching up with your posts, very saddened to hear you've lost two special friends, my deepest condolences. I bet that new doo lifts your spirits, though!
I love those purple highlights, very funky!
Hugs

Ak, pastaigāt gar okeāna krastu!Šeit vēl jāstaigā pa sniega laukiem, bet pirmais sniegpulkstenītis ir jau izspraucies un uzziedējis!
Jaunā frizūra tev skaista!

Hello darling sister! Look at how pretty your new "do" looks! Lucky you, you have some body in your hair! I think that is a great idea to treat yourself to those highlights. THE BEACH! Oh how I was craving the ocean and I would be there right now had I not cancelled my trip to Southern California. But I will get there once again, I am sure.

Peace to your loving heart today my dear. Anita

You are so sweet, never feel bad about not responding to comments.
I am so sorry about your losses lately. You're friends sound so wonderful, people who've made such a lasting impact on others lives.
What a lovely thing to have that peaceful moment at the beach. It looks beautiful. I love the hair, I stopped coloring mine too. It started going grey when I was in my late 20's and I recently said forget it. I actually like it better now. Your's looks terrific, such a fun, happy cut.

Palomasea said...

Well, dear Dzintra, you certainly deserve a little pampering after such a stressful time...and always, of course..
Your photos are gorgeous..sounds wonderfully refreshing. Nothing restores the spirit quite like the ocean..

I love your haircut and highlights! Just beautiful...I would love to add some green or purple to my hair, but my DD is embarrassed! :)) She says mom is not supposed to "look wild"...heee...I may have to disobey ;)
Much love to you, dear friend...
