A pleseant suprise AND a fantastic giveaways

So I usually dye my own hair with box dye.  It's always a suprise how it comes out. If you dye your hair blonde on your own you know what I mean.  I've tried so many times so many types/shades of blonde that I can hardly remember which one worked how and why.  I've tried ash, golden and beige.  I always have a problem with too much yellow but with ash it always goes too grey.  WELL for some reason I thought the last time I dyed it I used ultra light ash blonde.  Anyhow long story, despite my best efforts I ended up with yellow/orange roots.   I never used to have dark roots til after I gave birth to my daughter, that's another story.  Anyhow, So I decided to use a toner.  I've used toner before no problem.  Here's my second bit of poor judgement.  They didnt have my normal shade of toner so I decided the ashier one looked almost the same so it should be good enough right?  WRONG.  So my roots, still yellowy and the bottom of my hair grey/GREEN!  Yes green.  And the Hubbs could see it so you know it's bad.  So after crying, fighting the urge to reach for the scissors and some internet research I decided to go with a golden/red blonde ot counteract the green.  My wonderful husband ran to get it for me to save me donning a baseball hat and running to the store.  I decided to use copper blonde and well now my hair is strawberry blonde. I don't hate it and it's SO much better than green lol.  What do you think?

*I have never been so lucky as to own a Dyson vacuum.  We bought a bissell and while it does a good job with's like they completely neglected all thought for design.  When I vacuum the vacuum cleaner attacks me.  It topples over landing with a loud crash and has even damaged my wood floors!!  Not to mention I WILL NOT vacuum with kids around.  This beautiful Dyson Animal vacuum upright has the 'dyson ball' which allows for maximum maneuverablity.  And it won't try to kill me, definitely a plus!  It's also designed for animal hair which anyone with a pet knows can be mind bogglingly hard to get off a chair or pillow.
