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

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
