Yours truly has been nominated for a Leo Award for Best Actress in a Web Series! How exciting! The Leos are a BC industry event, it’s not televised, but it’s still a big deal. It’s great to be acknowledged by one’s peers. At first, I was really pleased and I adored the congratulations. And now, I’m a bit stressed out.
I recently had my hair done (in a weave), and unfortunately I’m not too happy about the result (in hopes of getting new headshots). And yes, it’s my fault cause I told her I wanted my hair left out at the front but she left a LOT OUT and she insisted it would look good and I could wear my hair up, but my hair is quite thin and it’s not even close to the picture I showed her. I returned to the hairdresser the day of the shoot to see if she could fix it but really, she’d have to redo the whole thing and frankly, I’m out of money. The hairdresser on set made me look really good, but I shouldn’t have to work that hard every time I leave the house. And I don’t normally, but at an industry event, there will be bright, unforgiving spotlights and I will be surrounded by skinny bitches in stilettos! Hubby wants me to get it redone, but I’m not very confident that the outcome would be better. (She’s not my usual hairdresser, but my old one has been in and out of the hospital lately.) So do I just let her style my hair with a ton of hairspray on the day and live with it until my regular hairdresser is feeling better or do I ahem, prod her into redoing it and risk another disappointment? And now of course, I have to find a dress to wear to the ceremony. I am not skinny, people, so I can’t just wear anything and call it a day, but I also don’t want to look like the mother of the bride either, you know what I mean? People, it takes a team to get me camera ready! And yes, nominees have to pay for their own ticket and I’d like my husband to come with me and that means a sitter and you see where I’m going with this? This one night could cost me a bundle. Here I come, clearance racks!
