The year to date

Hello gentle viewers, how are we all doing?

So 2018 is just flying so thought I would catch you up on where I am. So I took a break from the old blog as I just didn’t feel like I had anything worth talking about, I’d lost my inspiration and well basically life just got in the way.

But starting to feel like I’m ready to be back so here we go, quick recap on the year so far

January

New year, new me…….. nah i started with 10000937463 resolutions as always and right now I can’t remember a single one. Had a birthday, the big 37 came and went with the minimal of fuss, and by that I mean no one remembered, my own fault for taking it of my Facebook but come on guys.

February

Returned the old bouffant to its more natural colour, brunette. So far it not the worst so I can live with that. Found out I had a place on the great north run so quite chuffed about that so pretty excited to start training. Started a new work placement in London, which has been fun if a little ( a lot) expensive.

Oh yeah and then subsequently handed my notice in

March (so far)

Cut my hair super short, loved it for 0.00064 seconds. Pierced my nose again! Bought all the books,way to many for any sensible person to reasonably want but hey.

I’m also setting some new goals/resolutions because who says they just for Jan 1st.

1) hardest but most interesting. Not cutting my hair till I’m 40. That’s right 34 months to see what can be done, I must caveat this by saying there may be the odd trim and shaping into style while it’s growing otherwise it’s just going to be a little to cray for work etc

2) read at least 1 book a month. Should be easy but as life gets so busy sometimes it’s the little things that slide. If you have any recommendations let me know.

3) train for the GNR, its a half marathon but as someone who can’t currently run 5k this is going to be super hard. Send me all your positive thoughts please.

4) get these expenses and debts sorted, curb the spending and start the saving.

I’ll be tracking the old hold hair progression as I go. Here we are at present

Speak soon lovelies

Favourite summer look

Summer, you remember that right? I think we had about a week of it here in the UK. Anyway blessed with a tan from my holiday to Jamaica I attended the wedding, well vow renewal of some old friends. 

I’d had my eye on a maxi dress for some time, just a matter of finding the right one. Then after spotting this beauty on twitter I had to get it from Simply Be


It was perfect, I mean look at it.

The prefect summer dress. Teamed with summer wedges and this gorgeous embroidered bag from New Look.

Wedding outfit complete


All about holding onto those last sunny days………. oh and burgers

Hair today……

So I have self diagnosed myself with hair schizophrenia. It’s got to be a real thing!

I genuinely struggle to like my hair. Ive had it in a number of styles over the years, short, mid, longish, straight, wavy etc 

Plus brown, blonde, lilac, red etc

   
    
    
    
 
And I still don’t know which I prefer 

At the moment I’m back  togrowing it again just to try that as I have been short for the past 3ish years 

Wish me luck 

Her hair……

So I’m pretty sure I have hair schizophrenia (or something equally as dramatic) basically at the grand old age of 34 I still don’t know a) how I like my hair b) what hair style suits me and c) how to actually do my hair after I leave the hairdressers. 

I was planning on having some extensions and doing the whole grey/ silver thing….. But then someone reminded me I’m nearly 35 and maybe leave that to the hipster types who rock a boho look. 

def not me

So I sent round the gallery below to various friends to gauge opinion

  
So I’ve discounted the bottom left after the harsh (but fair) reality check from friends. So top left/ right would require either extensions or perseverance to grow and the other 3 means taking the plunge and chopping it of again but actually pay attention and learn to style

Currently my look is somewhere in between (a little Borris Johnson if I’m honest) so a change is needed

Any vote or opinion greatly received

Peace 

When will I be a grown up?

I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever grow up. I mean I have a mortgage, a grown up job and a steady relationship etc but I don’t feel like a grown up.
I am always comparing myself to others and what they have done or doing or have. I know I shouldn’t but sometimes I can’t help it. I see people who have started families,  are fit and healthy, love their job and seem to have it all.

But I just don’t feel that way. I mean I change my hair all the time, I still havent found the ‘one’,  that elusive look that makes you think yes, this is me, this is what I look like.
I wonder sometimes if it’s more to do with the fact that I’m still trying to get to who I think ‘I am’

I still have my idea of a dream job, and this may shock you…. It isn’t working in an office for someone else.
I’d love to work in radio, own a bookshop, be a writer.
Maybe one maybe all 3, but no I work in a office in a bid to be a grown up.

I’m also at that awkward age, that mid 30’s bit where no clothing shop is aiming it’s clothes/ looks at you. To young for some stores, to old for others. Yes I know there is online shopping but I like to try thing on before paying for everything then sending it all back.

Does anyone else feel ignored by the high street?! No ok then

So here I sit at 34, 6:50 on a Thursday morning in my pyjamas,  a snoring pug on my knee working out if I can get away with just straightening my hair or if it needs washing. The whole time I’m sure the rest if the world is up, showered, cleansed,  toned, moisturised, make up on, dressed in their amazingly stylish work clothes, reading some amazingly sophisticated work of literature heading to their dream job.

Are you?

A modern day miracle…..

Ok ok ok I admit I might have slightly exaggerated the outcome of this post, but before you stop scrolling bare with me.

So not sure about you but any regular shampoo/ conditioner user may have faced this heartache more then once. When one bottle, usually shampoo empties before the other.  Then you’re left with the dilemma,  do you buy the same brand conditioner again, just use shampoo alone, mix and match products, or shelve the remaining shampoo and start 2 bottles of fresh product.
Is any of this sounding familiar?
Ok I’ve probably lost some of you by now but stay with me.
Now I am a fickle fellow when it comes to haircare, generally only using what’s on offer when I go shopping so i’m either in mix and match mode or shelve and start a fresh…..

That was until Wednesday morning when this happened

That’s right people both my shampoo and conditioner expired at the same time…..

Praise be a Miracle I think you can all agree

With that in mind I’m of to buy a lottery ticket

Till next time lather rinse repeat
