This is Beth. Kicking it off with the fiery redhead.

1. The inaugural do: Reddish-orange inspired by The Fifth Element (Milla Jovovich as Leeloo)

and many famous female firecrackers. A small sample:

To be worn straight most of the month, although I may play with styles.

2. Music: Couldn’t hear much with sinks (3), dryers (3), and foils (many) spraying, blowing, and crinkling in my ears, but did come up for air long enough to catch Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer and Madonna’s Like a Prayer. Hum.

3. Drink: Spicy ginger beer, whiskey, and lime.

4. Theory: Redheads = hotheaded, passionate. Note: My hair has been various shades of reddish-brown at various times in my life, from auburn to burgundy. This do is a bit, well, less subtle. So maybe I’m actually testing the… vibrancy more than traditional redhead stereotypes (see #5).

5. Reactions – to be reported if/when needed throughout the month.

What will it spark?

P.S. Links to the songs: (“…wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face… come on baby the laugh’s on me.”); (hair!); (some fire in that one).

P.P.S. Thanks to Monica of course and Kylie and Crystal of Bang.
