Short hair don't care | Lifestyle



I've had what people would class as 'long hair' for around six years and was desperate to grow it down to my hips and feel like I'd accomplished something. I recently had a dramatic chop and have gone to shoulder length and couldn't be happier about the decision. I'd thought about it for a long time and it just got to the point where I had had enough of spending 45 minutes drying my hair and not being able to go to sleep with it down as it would knot and get in the way. I knew it was time for a change. 


Hair grows, and that's something I've told myself for a long time.  I've had some right crazy hair styles, from super short jet black hair, to short and bleached blonde, to now which is relatively 'normal'. I've always been up for playing around with my hair, whether that's the colour or the style, it grows and you shouldn't worry about it and just bite the bullet and go for it.

Going into the deeper impacts of me having long hair, I felt I was hiding behind it, and strangely, I lost a lot of confidence with my appearance because of it. I'm finding it hard to put into words exactly how it made me feel, but in a way began to feel that without it, I wasn't good enough. I became dependent on having long hair. What is that about? Because I started to not feel myself and knew that I needed a change to spice things up a bit.

If you've wondered for a while now what its like to cut all that hair that just hangs down for days on end, well, it's amazing!! Having belly button length hair for around two years became such a pain. Spending a lot of time washing and looking after it resulted in me not putting in the effort into styling it at all because I just couldn't be bothered as it took so much of my time. Now with shorter locks it takes me around 10 minutes to put a bit of movement and curl in and that quick task suits me down to the ground.

Don't be afraid, hair grows and I'm sure you'll all look lovely if you take the plunge.

Have you recently had a drastic hair change?

  1. You look amazing in short hair! I have really long hair and I feel like short hair wouldn't look nice on me so I'm sticking to long hair :) But I do understand the struggles you've mentioned, it can get a bit too much at times.

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
