Lunch at Santa Monica




(pictures by: Lasse Enersen)


PS...and here is my first vanity project! Finally I found something to test. 

As a TV heavy user housewife (that's all I'm able to do with my left eye, while I rescue my crawling angel from the dangerous situations 24/7.), I ended up to be a infomercial-victim, so I ordered Wen Hair Care -products. I just received them from the post, so now I'll test them and post another hair picture after 3 weeks.

There is about 5 inch my own color, then some old highlights and the red in the lenghts is old red henna, which was mistake. I like the effect henna does to hair structure, but bright red color is just too much for me. I prefer my non-colored mousy hair with non-coloring "henna" aka. senna. (Cassia Obovata)

Before Wen. Stay tuned...


PS2  Since I've got so much e-mails lately, I have to apologize that I don't have time and energy to reply all them individually, even when I truly truly love to. I hope you guys understand. I promise to answer every now and then here in latest blog entry comments, ok? Love ya!


EDIT:  The Great WEN-experiment report. 
After only one wash:

I have to say it was very effective for my dry hair, but it was almost too good, my hair felt so silky it was hard to handle, and my ponytail felt thinner than usually. So I had to try that Aloe Vera for thin hair, and it was a better for my hair. Only negative effect was that my very sensitive scalp was a bit irritated, but I can't tell if it was because of Wen, or Los Angeles water, or what. The water smells weird there. 

I didn't have any problems with canceling my order after three months, and now, after two weeks without Wen, I'm missing it. It was so easy to use. I wish I could buy that from Finland too, but it's not possible yet. Bo-hoo!

  3. Is there a way to preorder your book? I've been following you since the third or fourth daydream, I am sad you had to take down your pictures but happy they'll be around in another form!

  4. Hope you are enjoying your time in California! It's nice to see pictures of you and Mila. Wow, your hair is long, Adele. I could only ever get my hair to the middle of my back before it got too scraggly. I'm interested to see how your experiment turns out! Good luck!

  11. Lovely photos- my son just moved to San Francisco, and stopped in Santa Monica - he told me how much he loved it - your pictures show why!!!

  12. I've always wanted to try Wen. I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  13. Hey, I've seen that stuff advertised on the TV too - looks like a miricle worker that's for sure, can't wait to see how you get on with it. Loved your holiday pictures. S x x x

  14. You are so talented! I just love the photos you've shared on your blog. You inspired me to re-create one of your wonderful ideas with my two month old son. I wish I'd seen your art when he was younger and slept all the time; these days, it's hard to catch him when he's asleep for a little photo session.

    On a side note, I'm Russian and my grandmother's name is Mila. I really like that name and wanted to name one of my children after her. However, I have three boys, so no luck yet :).

    Also, someone shared a link with me (http://www.fubiz.net/2010/07/27/milas-daydreams/). You mentioned that all your photos have a copyright, but these didn't -- thought you might want to know.

  15. You have beautiful hair! Didn't realize it was so long! Can't wait to see if you like Wen! My hair is SO super dry now, I'm tempted to buy some for myself!

  16. You are so fresh and I just adore that hair - wow :)

  17. You have such beautiful hair. I hope you have a lovely time in California.

  18. I'm totally envious of your time at Santa Monica! Here, in D.C., we had freezing rain and snow that stymied everyone and everything. Hope the warm sand and breezes off the water have cured all the flu and colds. Mila looks like she's lovin' every California minute, too!

  19. Just watched your youtube video with Mila's daydream pictures and cried...they are so so sweet...there is something so magical about them. My sweet baby girl was born with some serious medical issues and I wasn't able to take as many pictures as I would have liked, but she's taken a turn for the better and I was able to finally get some professional pictures done for the first time in 2 years! Your baby girl is very lucky to have such a wonderful and beautiful mother who is clearly enjoying every moment of motherhood! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful pictures.

  21. I love your blog. I'm from Brazil and also have a little baby girl (eight and a half months old). Her name is Manuela. Thanks for share that lovely song (Wind's lullaby), I use to listen with my daughter, it's like a gift. Enjoy your time in California, beautiful place to rest and take pics. Kisses

  22. i understand how u must feel...with an energetic angel with you...who wouldn't miss any second to see what she is doing..savour every second of being with her thru cries, tantrums, laughter and priceless smiles..for after a decade, you wished you could turn back the hands of time.
    you and your husband are truly gifted and i am sure Mila will be.
    my dream place is Finland - bec i used to have a bestfriend who is now there in Helsinki and i have a penfriend (who i have never met before) for the past 35yrs from Suomi.
    take care and all my warm wishes

  25. Hej hej!

    I found this: http://dalesdesigns.net/A-enersen.htm?sms_ss=facebook&at_xt=4d47fe0d3e4101ac%2C18

    (and then i found your blog, but no matter) The website looks weird, it has about 20 of your photos, with copyright mark on, but I wouldn't like it if it were my photos.

  31. Being happy is something you have to learn. I often surprise myself by saying "Wow, this is it. I guess I'm happy. I got a home I love. A career that I love. I'm even feeling more and more at peace with myself." If there's something else to happiness, let me know. I'm ambitious for that, too.

  36. Aw, you two are so cute! Love Cali. I'm excited to see how the WEN products work for you. I've been wanting to try them, but am still on the fence about it. My hair is super dry and frizzy and I am on the hunt for products to tame it! :P

  38. what a single mom goes through in her life nobody can imagine , working to provide food and home , taking care of her kid without any help, managing both outside and inside worlds perfectly hats off to them.

  39. I've been using Wen for about 3 years, and it's fine, but not amazing. I feel like I could get the same results from any CO (conditioner only) hair regime. Thing is, they're really aggressive if you try and cancel. :/ I had tried in the past, but they talked me into a different package.
    Just a few months ago, they charged my card successfully, but wouldn't send out the product until I gave them my new card expiry! So now they have my money, but I still don't have the conditioner. Still dealing with that one.
