My Hair Journey.

Hello my Lovelies
Since the year is coming to an end I thought I'd share the journey of my hair.
Beginning the year I had my natural mid-tone auburn hair.
Around April I dyed it a soft plum.
In June an unnoticeable red.
August I went True Red.

Around November I decide I want to go blonde. Followed by the neon orange disaster and a few toners, it looked semi normal.

Then I think Green would be a good idea. Thank God I got that out of my system and no one got any pictures. It could have been nice with the right maintenance but my boss said no.

Another box dye later we are here. This is where I should have stopped. But I saw the roots and the green was starting to show through.
So I break this shit out.
And end up with this, BOO!
Here comes the saviour
Now I am here.
I am not touching anouther bottle of dye until my roots have grown out to my ears.
Do you think I can hold out that long?

Video Set Up Hell

Hello my Lovelies.
Today I tried to pre-film some videos for my new channel and it didn't go very well.
Before Christmas my brother, Brian, had moved out. He'd broken up with his long term girlfriend. She moved back to Leicester and he had gone for a job in Huntly. He started seeing someone out there and moved in with her.
We thought since he was gone we could put all the junk from the living room in his room so we could put up the decorations. Next thing I know he's broken up with this new girl and is back home by Boxing Day. Now he's living in the living room until his room is back to normal.
Enough of Brian's 'Jeremy Kyle' Special.
So with Brian in the Living room and Nick in my room, the only available place to film is the bathroom. I used to film in there before, but the new bath has a thinner edge so I can't fit my camera on there anymore. The only other place I can put the camera is on a ledge above the sink. It's a perfect set up for talking videos, but it's too far away for tutorials. Even if I use the zoom it doesn't help, as it makes the picture pixelate and it cuts my head out of frame and that's no use. I've tried otther ways of placing the camera, but they're either too far away, too low or too akward an angle.
I know it sounds lame, but it's really frustrating. I was given a week and a half holidays, I had nothing planned so I figured I could bulk film all the videos I've been meaning to do but had no time to.
Hopefully Nick will be going away with his friend Lee for a while and I'll be able to get work done.
Fingers crossed.
Sorry for the rant lol.

Sunday Coffee Morning: 2011 Wish List

Good Morning my Lovelies.

I'm not fool enough to go out in this weather not even for the boxing day sales. There's icicles outside my window as thick as a freaking drain pipe!

I've poshed up my coffee today with some ameretto syrup. Anna gave me a huge bottle of it for Christmas.

Anyways on with the show. I wanted to share my wish list for 2011

Elisabeth & James

Jeffery Campbell

Michael Kors


Mostly found at

I have developed an obssesion for rings, but mostly stacking rings and cocktail rings. I keep meaning to save for the things I really want, but I keep being drawn in by cheap alternatives from Primark and they just don't last as long. I'm thinking I should avoid Primark for a while and save.
I also have a wish list for the new Mac Collections coming in January (Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours) which I've already saved for. It's the first time I've been so excited about Mac collections lol.
Have any of you got your eye on anything from the collection?
Anyaways, my coffee is cold.

Merry Christmas!

Hello My Lovelies!

I hope Santa was good to all and that you all had a wonderful day!

My day started with waking up far too early. Then there was the gift giving. Next we dine and eat too much. Opened a bottle of truly awful wine that my boss gave me and swift poured it out.

And now I sit here writing.

My favorite gift was the perfume Mum bought me.

(credit: Google images)

I have fallen in love with this fragrance, it's possibly the most 'grown up' perfume I own. Admittedly I was sucked in by the add campaign but meh.

I've fallen in love with MKA all over again.


Anyone who knows me will know how much I adore MKA. Even when she's as drunk as a skunk, she is gorgeous lol.

I'm going to go enjoy the rest of my evening.

I'll post more tomorrow

Love and Bugs

Sunday Coffee Morning

Happy Sunday!
Here I am with coffee, croissants and Tori Amos playing.
I'm a bit miffed that I can't get on to twitter for some bizarre reason or other, but hey it's only twitter.
Yesterday I had a 'One Tree Hill' marathon. I really wasn't in the mood to be social, or get dressed really. It'd been a while since I'd had a douvet day. I got throught whole of season one and a few discs into season two, then Nick came home and turned "that bloody crap" off lol.
I also looked on the Open University website for creative writing and literature courses. But the courses I want to do are over £2000. Since it costs so much I'm having a read through 'The Cambridge Introduction To Creative Writing'. So far this book reminds me of Higher English class hand outs. Maybe I should have paid more attention in class.
My coffee is getting cold.

So It Begins

You may be wondering what happened to my blog and why I haven't really been on my channel?
I'm turning over a new leaf.
And I have a new channel.
I feel like I've been wasting time these last few years. Instead of achieving what I want, I've let everything slip.
When I left school back 2006 (God, it's been that long already) I had plans, I pretty much had my whole life planned, but I didn't have the guts to go for it.
Now things are different and I don't want to be creeping up on 30 thinking of all things I could have done.
There's more to life than make up.
Mainline me to the coffee pot.
I have some work to do.
Love and Bugs
