Hold you head high and your hair higher

So girls, break ups are hard aren’t they? Wether it was a mutual agreement or not it sucks! Maybe you fell out of love maybe you didn’t, maybe someone cheated maybe you just grew apart. What ever has happened it’s still isn’t easy right? Now some people get knocked down and some people pick themselves right back up again. I like to think of myself as the latter.

Every few months a complete overhaul constantly changing my appearance. (My bf reckons i am on the run) but since last July i have kept to a pretty… Read More →

  Nothing beats a good bun! Wether it is a carefully crafted look or something we have done in 2 mins, it always does us justice and looks fab.Now i can’t help but see some of the men have jumped on the band wagon too and have been doing the same. This now leaves one question …who works them best??? The Man bun??   Jared Leto, Joaquin phoenix and Alex Ebert were winners at the golden globes…not sure they were winners in the style stakes,what do you think?? Men with messy buns i just don’t know???? Now i can see the appeal, i have been watching Sons of Anarchy lately and the biker bun is kinda doing it for me,… Read More →
