Cuteness Overload


Hello Everyone,

Today's post is what I consider to be a nice bit of light relief from the complexities of modern life, sometimes I find myself getting bogged down with life as we know it, I've mentioned these sorts of feelings before when I discussed our increasing inability to switch off and be alone with our own thoughts and also when I discussed the importance of taking time out and I still stand by these posts but I also think that sometimes we just need to look at nice things to get a happiness boost, for me that involves either taking a lovely walk outside through the hills or staying in and looking at lovely cute things that I fill my house with like a bloody magpie!

How To Have Shiny, Healthy Hair In 3 Steps


Hello Everyone!

Today I'm here to talk to you a little again about hair, now I know that lately I've written a fair few hair posts but I've recently entered into a little love affair with all things hair.

It started last year, as many of you know, I had waist length hair that I chopped short and donated to The Little Princess Trust (and if you have long hair and are considering a haircut, please please PLEASE consider donating your locks to these children) and since that point, I've been experimenting with my new shorter, healthier hair.
There was the post about the straightening brush, then I discovered my new favourite straighteners which replaced my GHDs (shock!), I also tried the hair tong with the smile inducing name (The CoCo LoCo Long Tong) to experiment with curling my shorter hair and finally, last week, I tried some clip in ombre hair extensions which were really fun! However, through all of this I've often had comments and emails asking me how my hair is so shiny, well I'm here to let you know my top secrets my friends, get ready, we're going in.
