Woo hoo! My locs are now a year old! Time sure does fly. “Black Cat Tuesday” is not a holiday (although it should be), but I decided to show off a couple of black cat purchases that I made. Of course, the best black cat is my Edgar, a little stray that found me as I was walking home from work – a week before Halloween! He’s feisty, but so sweet. He is absolutely priceless.
I kept my makeup very basic, but I’ll show off what I wore yesterday. I bought a Yin-Yang Cats t-shirt from Cafe Press and I love it!
I also found a black cat case for my phone on Ebay. It wasn’t expensive (under $10) and I’m very pleased with it. My old case was okay, but it was plain, gray, and BORING. It had no flair to it at all.
Here’s the full progression of my locs. I started out with 8 inches (20.32 cm) of loose hair and now my longest loc is 6-1/4 inches (15.88 cm). Not too shabby – it’s normal for locs to get shorter before they get longer.
This concludes Year One of my crazy dreadlocks. I’ll keep posting on my dreadlock growth for another year. Let’s see how long they get after 2 years!
Hello, my dark lovelies! Today is Paraskevidekatriaphobia! Don’t worry, I’m not cursing you out – it just means a fear of Friday the 13th. This word is a combination of the Greek words paraskeví (“Friday”) and dekatreís (“thirteen”). Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. To help honor this “frightful” day, Edgar, my handsome “fur baby”, allowed me to take a couple of photos of him.
What better day to wear my new, black cat earrings than Friday the 13th? Here’s what I’m wearing today:
Today’s the day to also wear cat-eye makeup with my cat-eye glasses:
That’s it for now, lovelies. This is the only time Friday the 13th will happen this year, so I’ll leave you with a poem titled, “Friday the Thirteenth” by poet, Brian Bilston. Happy Friday the 13th!
