Hair Update: Return of the Fringe

So, i’m procrastinating again. I should be writing the final 1,500 words of my final Uni essay of this module but… i felt like showing the entire internet my new hair was a priority. I know right, i’m the worst. It’s fine though, i’ve written 38 words today on the essay….

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you will have seen all the hairstyles i’ve gone through over the past 12 months. It’s been blonde with no fringe, blonde with a fringe, dark brown, bronde, ombré and now Ombré with a fringe. Indecisive anyone?

I think i’ve finally got to a point with my hair where i’m semi happy at the moment. I do think my hair needs to be a little longer, as now i’ve had my fringe cut, my hair seems so much shorter (sadface). The good thing is, that even if i have my hair up, it looks kind of kick ass with the fringe so i’m not constantly damaging my hair by blowdrying and straightening like i used too. Hopefully, this will give my hair time to repair – that and i’m currently using OJON damage reverse hair products (which i will share with you soon) and they are doing wonders for my hair already.

So here it is, my new ‘do’;

Hair up:

fringe

Hair Down (apologies, i had just taken it down and messed it up, so it ain’t perfect);

fringe no2.

Soz about the face too….

IF you want to see a very vast range of my previous hairstyles, you can have a gander here.

Let me know what you think…. 🙂

July 2015; Hair Update

If you’ve read my previous post, you will know i have a life long battle with my hair. I get it cut short, then i want to grow it but when it gets to a certain length, i decide i want to cut it short again. So i set myself a goal; Hair below my shoulders by June 2016. This is when Owain’s friend is getting married and will be the first wedding of 2016 i’ll be invited too, unless any last minute invites find their way to me! I want to try and battle through the annoying hair on my neck all the time phase and resist the urge to cut it all off again.

That’s where my blog comes in. I’m using it to track my progress so i can see exactly how much my hair has grown and what condition it’s in. I would go insane without something to measure it and i’d probably end up cutting it all off!

It’s been about a month and a half since i last decided to chop all my hair off, to make sure i had a fresh clean start with beautiful ends. I haven’t dyed my hair for a few months until my roots ended up looking ridiculous and i had to dye my roots a little darker to cover the different colours it had grown (don’t ask, it was a bit stripy). I’m trying not to dye the ends of my hair so i can go for longer without cutting it and it seems to be working. I had a tiny trim this week and here is where my hair is at right now;

Hair July 2015

It’s still ombré and it seems to get lighter after every wash, but i love it! I get bored of having my hair one block colour and so the lighter ends keep it interesting.

Here is my hair when i started this journey at the beginning of June 2015;

hair cut

It’s not been very long and i have had a trim but i’m so proud of myself for not cutting it all back off again because the old me would take an inch off this and have it end at my chin.

I’ll keep you updated & my twitter friends have recommended Lee Staffords Range for hair that doesn’t grow past a certain length so i may invest and let you know how i get on with it!

Have you or are you growing your hair? Give me your tips!

Goodbye Glossybox

WP_20140820_004_Fotor

I started my Glossybox journey in February 2014. It was new to me and receiving a box each month for a set price with products i could try and fall in love with that i had never heard of before.

It started out great – new and amazing mascaras, eyeliners, body lotion. Every month i was excited to see what this month’s box brought. Then, slowly, the products stopped being relevant to me. I was hardly using any of the products in the box. Maybe i’d try it out but then i would stay in the box and a few months later, i would have a pile of boxes holding products i had never used and never had the intention of using.

Then i had a clear out. I worked out how much money i would have saved if i hadn’t opted into Glossybox compared to how many of the products i actually used. Then i started thinking what else i could have bought that i would definitely have used with that money. Oh the pain.

So that’s it. I cancelled it. June will be my last box and i’m hoping it’s a good one. I’m still signed up to My Little Box, as i think it has a variety of lifestyle and beauty products which just get better each month. I love it! I think now though i will save the money and buy myself a treat each month that i know i will enjoy!

What about you? Have you found these beauty boxes are amazing or not so much?

Jord: Stunning Wood Watches

Jord is a swedish word which means earth, soil and land and looking at the watches they make, i can see where they are coming from. They make their watched from natural wood and love partnering with bloggers to spread the word about being green and helping manufacturers and consumers to reduce the harm to our environment.

Jord creates beautiful and wearable wooden watches. I was lucky enough to try the Fieldcrest Maple watch and i have to say, i don’t think i’ll ever love a watch as much as i love this one. It’s lightweight, durable and the pale colour of the wood will go with pretty much any outfit. I’ve received so many compliments on this watch and i’ve only worn it once!

The design is absolutely stunning. The clasp hides away behind the wooden strap and there is a carving on the back of the watch face with the Jord logo and where it was made. Simple and elegant. They measured it to my wrist and i can not fault their service. MyMy

It came beautifully presented and packaged in a wooden box with the logo crafted into it. I slid the top of the box off to reveal this little beauty sitting on a cushion – the height of sophistication.
