I should start wearing different make-up, this is pretty much what I always wear!
There was once a time when I longed for my hair to be curly and wavy. I would using curling tongs, hair straightners as curling tongs, mousse, any product I could get my hands on for the curl I longed for. It didn't work. Mousse made my hair dry, and curls always fell out within five minutes. So I gave up, and got over my want for curls, and instead tried to love my naturally poker straight hair.
But something has changed. As my hair has got longer again, perhaps I have got lazier, but I find myself piling my hair up in buns whenever I'm indoors. You don't see this so much, as I almost always have my hair down when I go out, but then when I'm indoors, boom, it's up and out of my face minutes after shutting the door. This creates a problem. Do you see my hair in the picture? It's slightly wild, isn't it? Not quite curly, or wavy, more of a frizzy mess. THAT is what I have to work with nowadays. No matter how straight my hair is, as soon as I have my hair up for more than an hour, I take it out and BOOM. This is the outcome. At first I was pretty happy, I wanted volumised hair, and I certainly got it. But now it's just annoying. I can't work with that! The only thing that tames it is washing my hair - which I don't do every single day, because I was taught that too much hair washing strips your hair of its natural oils - has anyone else been taught that?
Anyway, I've digressed majorly. I guess hair is one of those things I'll never be fully happy with. I've spent the past 5 years yearning for every hair colour under the sun and wanting both very long and very short hair, so I've accepted the fact that if my hair is poker straight, I'll dislike it. And if it's volumised, I'll dislike it. I don't look in the mirror enough to really care, so I shall not think about it any further.
Do you feel the same about your hair, or are you generally content with it?
Anyway, I've got a few posts that I enjoyed this week that I shall share with you:
Emma shows us how to do newspaper nails, Hannah rocks the monochrome look, Sarah shows us how to wear skinny jeans to suit our body shape, Jennie shares a beautiful charm bracelet/necklace that she's found and A Thrifty Mrs tells us of some brilliant cleaning uses for Bicarbonate of Soda - one of these things that I knew was good for cleaning, but never knew what exactly it was good for....
Ooh, go follow Florence Katharine too, I love her blog!
