i always pictured you as a strawberry blond. are you not that?
Yes. That's exactly what I am. I've just had some blonder highlights a couple of times. They're okay. Some day I'll probably do it again but my natural hair colour is fine with me too.
Can't wait to practice my rusty French and the locals to look at me in disdain
I haven't been for a few years now, but they really were nice to me with my rusty French. Hope they are to you too.
