The Circus Is In Town

Lions and tigers and bears oh my! Ok, there were no lions or bears, more like tigers and elephants and ponies oh my!  On Sunday I took my son to the circus and my sister in the name of “we’ve known each other forever” joined along with my niece.  I had not been to the circus in many years so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  First off it was indoors and not only was it a circus, it was a mini carnival, complete with games, a merry go round and funnel cakes.  My son enjoyed himself, sorta …it was such a long event that he began getting restless and missed some of the show.  The clowns were a little lack luster in my opinion but maybe I’m not familiar with what clowns are supposed to do.  I pictured them with an unlimited supply of balloons and tons of juggling but there was very little of either.  During the intermission, they offered 60 second elephant rides for $10 to which I say *no bueno*. Luckily my son wasn’t interested anyway.  All in all, I give the experience a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10.  My son would probably give it a 7 so it wasn’t a complete waste.  If he’s happy I’m happy. 

Anyway, as for my hair, I washed/deep conditioned my hair on Saturday night and put it in several twists in preparation for a twist out.  Although it was a bit chilly, it was humid out so it ended up just looking “ok”.  Since it was chilly, I didn’t wear the outfit I planned on wearing but what I did wear was cute enough. 

What has been your circus experience?

I wore black denims (Forever 21), this black shirt worn by Angela Simmons (Forever 21)this with some old black motorcycle boots (can't remember where from) and this black motorcycle jacket (TopShop).
