At last my hair is growing!!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

It's been almost 10 months ago since I decided to chop all my hair off a la Frankie Sandford (you can see it here, if you haven't already seen it) and almost immediately after having it all cut off I regretted it. I did try and persevere with it to see if it would grow on me after all super-short hair isn't something you can get used to straight away when you've always had long hair!

The last time I had it cut was Christmas eve ... naughty, I know! ... and after that I decided I was definitely going to grow it out. Growing it out has been a bit of a nightmare because my hair was different lengths but I have been trimming the one side myself so that it's more or less even. I know I should probably go to a hair dressers rather than do it myself but I'm scared that they'll take too much off. It's already taking ages to grow out! I have to say though, considering I haven't had it cut in as long it is in surprisingly good condition. It feels soft, looks shiny and has very few split ends, so something good has come out chopping it all off :)

This is how long my hair currently is - cue pouting, posing pic!

I'm giving it another 6 weeks it will be past my shoulders then I'm definitely going to go for a (little) trim. All in all I have to say that while it I regretted it it hasn't been the worst haircut I've ever had and I probably still haven't learned my lesson, but for now, bring on the long hair!!!

What's your gymspiration?

This is mine. The pic was taken with my iPhone from an H&M summer catalogue (hence the poor quality!). I think her body is amazing and probably more realistic for me to be able to achieve, although it will take a lot of hard work to get there. Unfortunately no amount of time in the gym will give me her face, hair or tan though!

NOTD: Nails Inc - Jermyn Street

I've had this nails polish for ages and I've never used it until now. I got this as part of the Nails inc 'Greige Collection'. I know that nails inc gave this polish away free in Glamour and as part of the Diet Coke promotion but I missed both!

In the bottle I thought Jermyn Street looked much like Essie's 'Mink muff' so always chose that. Yesterday however, I decided to give this a go and I'm glad that I did. I much prefer Jermyn Street to Mink Muff and it doesn't look anything like mink muff when applied. It's a gorgeous taupe/mud colour with a slight lilac undertone. I love it and can't believe it took me so long to discover it! It makes me wonder what other nail polishes I have that I've overlooked.

Bring On 2011!!

Personally 2010 hasn't been a great year for me and I can't wait to see the back of it. It wasn't actually a bad year was just a bit 'blah'...if you know what I mean? It was really uneventful and I didn't accomplish what I had planned so I'm looking forward to a new year and a new start and I do have a feeling though that 2011 is going to be a lot better! :)

Last year I had a long list of resolutions and goals (which I do every year). 2010 has been my worst year for sticking to them, I done nothing! So this year I've decided I'm not making any resolutions. I will make small goals which I would like to work towards achieving. This is more likely to be successful for me! What about you? What are your resolutions and goals?

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Where ever you are keep safe & warm and remember - Start to start your year the way you want it to go on!!

And lastly, to everyone who has subscribed, commented and read this blog - It means a lot and I'll see you all in 2011!!

Katy Perry with no make up!!


I have to say I was shocked and relieved when I saw this picture on twitter. It turns out that the gorgeous Katy Perry is human after all! I don't really think it looks like her though!

The usually Flawless Katy Perry

I think it's safe to say that hubby Russell Brand will be in the dog house after posting this picture of Make up free Katy on twitter earlier on. After all no woman likes to be pictured au naturale, especially not for the whole world to see. He did take it down just as quickly as he put it up. Still it was long enough for it to do it's rounds!
