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.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
