HD | Hairdressers

To be very honest with you I get as nervous to go to the hair dressers as I do to go to the dentist, especially if I'm going to a place that isn't where I would normally get my hair cut. Anyway to stop the rambling, the other day I went to the hair dressers and as much as I loved the length of my hair it wasn't really working with me. I would end up putting it up in a ponytail and it would be high maintenance. So I thought for a change I would get 3 inches cut off. I already had 2 but I wanted to make a difference to my hair this time. So I built up the courage and went in...


BEFORE

As you can see as before it did look nice but it was high maintenance. Plus I still had a little bit of ombré on the ends so it made my hair more frizzy and due to the fact it was lighter ends it made it more visible. 


NOW

I can see a huge improvement in my hair. It still takes a little maintenance for it too look presentable sue to the fact that my hair is originally fairly frizzy. I also think that the new haircut helps shape my face more and also makes me look a little more sophisticated. 

It's funny how just a simple hair cut can speak so much. I've always personally cared more about my hair then make-up. As I think that if your hair is looking good you already look put together, or it might just be the fact that I don't always have the time to do my make-up in the morning. Either way I am a big fan or my hair, so I've decided to create a little series called "Hair Diary" or for short "HD", comment below if there are any posts you would like to see about hair and I'll be sure to include them in the series.

Throwback to Prom










As Prom is just around the corner for some people, I thought I'd show you a few pictures that were taking from my Prom last year. Personally I loved my Prom, I enjoyed seeing everybody from my year in one place before we all went our separate routes. We danced, laughed and just created our own night to remember. I went with my best friend Connor and my other friend Freya. We wanted to arrive in a unique way so we went to Prom by boat which also made the evening longer as we went on a small boat trip before arriving. Overall I loved Prom as it is a time to relax and be yourself.

Beloved Books


Recently I have been a a bit of a book worm. Even though I'm not the best reader and am actually quite slow I do try to read as much as I can. I normally read on a evening with a nice hot beverage all snuggled up in bed. Currently I have been reading "true" by Hilary Duff. This is the last book from my favourite series of books. It's very rare for me to find a book I love but these books are definitely my favourite. Anyway the whole reason behind this post was just to show you a few books that I have been loving recently novels and entertainment.


I've kind of grouped these books together as I think they can be classed as both a light read and also an interesting book to sit down and read on sunny afternoon. These also give you an insight on the readers personal lives whilst giving you tips on the world of fashion and beauty.

1 | Make Up Your Life: Your Guide to Beauty, Style, and Success - Online and Off (Michelle Phan)
* * * *
2 | The Glam Guide (Fleur De Force)
* * * * *
3 | Love Tanya (Tanya Burr) 
* * *


These are different reads to the other books. These are definitely a sit down and read sort of book. These are both books of a three book series written by Hilary Duff. I read these took books and immediately fell in love with the characters and their unique adventures. These are the types of books that keep you turning over each page until two hours pass and you realise that your either late or haven't done what you had planned. The way Hilary writes makes you feel like you have escaped into another world and are living the characters lives.

4 | elixir (Hilary Duff)
* * * * *
5 | devoted (Hilary Duff)

I hope you have enjoyed reading this blog post. I haven't done one like this before but if you liked it and want me to do more like this or just have a recommendation or something to say remember to comment below.
