hair update

I did a post months ago about my hair and said that I would do an update on it after 6 weeks. 6 weeks came and went and I never did the update. Had planned a date to write it, but then a bunch of stuff happened and I just ran out of time.

Then completely forgot about it and just remembered last week when I was planning the rest of my blogmas posts that I still hadn’t done it so thought now was the perfect time to share with you a Hair update.

Before I start, if you’re new to my blog or forgot what I talked about in my previous hair posts as they were all like a million months ago here are the links in order from most recently written:

Hair Hair and More Hair 

Haircare product review update 

Lee Stafford Hair care product review

So let’s get started with the hair update.

Not sure why, but looking back throughout my blog archives my hair seems to be one of the most talked about topics on my blog and also one of the topics I seemed to write the most about when I do post it on.

So will try to make this one a bit shorter so you don’t have to spend all night sat here reading it and getting board.

I did stick to the 6 weeks of not straightening my hair, but as soon as the 6 weeks where up I started straightening again and have been ever since.

So come to the conclusion that 6 weeks is the most I could go without straightening my hair so unless they stop making straightening we have an end of the world thing and lose power, or I dementia and forget,  I’ll  still be straightening my hair for the rest of my life.

The main thing that I did notice after the 6 weeks was that my hair had grown slightly, never going to grow back supper long unless I stop straining it for a 6 months to a year and also seemed to be in slightly better condition.

Here is a pic of the shampoo I’ve been using since I wrote my last post, after years of trying a number of different shampoos from cheap to expensive I’m still not convinced any of them are any different.

Not the best pic as it was took on my iPhone but here is a pic of my hair that I took after washing and straightening it this afternoon  hair update

Also if you’d like to take part I’ll be doing fashion selfie Friday again tomorrow, if you don’t have a clue what I’m talking check out the link in my menu bar to find out more info.

christmas wish list 2014

Been reading lots of different blogs lately and seen all these people doing Christmas gift guides. So thought seeing as I haven’t done many Chirstmasy post this blogmas I do a gift guide as well.

Which lets just say failed miserably, given that I’m the worst person in the world at picking/buying Christmas gifts for people. So instead I thought I’d share with you all my Christmas wish list 2014.

Most of them are probably unrealistic, full-time job/lottery win Christmas gifts, but thought I’d share them with you any ways.

Please skip this part if you don’t want to listen to me sharing my thoughts of the day:

I know I’ve said this a few times over blogmas, but I still can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 17 days. Never thought I’d make it this far, there has been   some days where I felt like not writing anything or even logging into my blog, but some how I’ve managed to push through and keep going.

You probably all think why force myself to write when I do really want to, that’s because, I feel like I need to finish the challenge I set myself as is the past I’ve given up a number of different things due to them getting to hard or me getting to stressed over them and I also want to start grow my blog more.

I’m not expecting my blog to start paying the bills any time soon and probably never will as they say only about 10% of people in the world ever have a successful blog/YouTube channel.

But I just fee like that for the first year and a bit, that I had my blog I didn’t really put in much effort. Most people would probably see it as a lot of effect as I actually started a blog and YouTube channel, which is a big step out of my/your comfort zone sharing some much with the world.

So come mid- Jan/feb I won’t be able to post full-time/every day, but really hoping to get into more of a schedule/routine, so that I can post 3 times a week and still get all my course work/placement done on time.

Really gone off track with this CChristmas wish list 2014 post, but just felt like sharing some of my thoughts with you all out there on the World Wide Web.

So here is my Christmas wish list 2014:

favourite blogs of the week

Blogmas day 16, only 10 more days till Christmas, yay.

Been reading a lot of blogs over the weekend so thought I’d share with you my favourite blogs of the week: (love her style of writing and also the fact that she’s from Nottingham like me) (love her style of writing and her photos) (love her style of fashion) (Love that she talks about anything and everything) (love her style of writing and her photos)


Have loads of other favourite blogs of the week, but thought I’d save those for another post sometime next week.


my first every YouTube video

Just realised the other day that last year when I started my YouTube channel the video I post on their wasn’t my first ever video.

So flash back to last week I was searching through/tidying out a box and came across some of my old fashion design drawings that I did back in like 2008, the year when I wanted to be a fashion design.

Was looking thought them and just suddenly remembered that I made a video on them, spent a few minutes think back six years to 2008 and remembered that I uploaded it to YouTube.

So technically I made a YouTube video back in the days when it wasn’t that popular to make YouTube videos and before most of the big people like Zoella and thatcherjoe started.

If only I knew what I knew now I would have carried on making them as in some ways I’ve gone fall circle back round to making them again.

The views I got on it where nothing compared to what people get nowadays. (3,338 to be exact) But compared to the views I get on my current YouTube channel they’re great. I suppose I got more views back then as there wasn’t a lot of competition in the YouTube world and videos didn’t have to be HD filmed and edited.

To me looking back on it from todays perspective it’s one of the most shorts videos you could possible and probably one of the most boring videos you could possible find out YouTube.

Know days it’s all about having great content making HD videos and competing with like a million others talking about the same topic as you.

After a year, of being on YouTube I do have to say that if I’d just had a YouTube and not a blog I probably wouldn’t have carried on making YouTube videos.

So here it is my first every YouTube video:

Also got a bunch of comments as well, which I’ve never had on my current YouTube videos, you probably won’t even be interested but here are the comments if you’d like to view/read them.

Would love to make more YouTube videos, but never really have anything exciting to do apart from hauls and cooking videos and theirs only so many of those you can do. As it costs so much to buy the ingredients to the make recipe and you do a haul it either involves me buying a bunch of items all at once which can get expensive or buying stuff of time and saving it which can be hard as then, I‘d have nothing to blog about.

Sorry if it sounded like I was moaning a bit just find my blog post a good way to vent my thoughts sometimes as most of my friends and family don’t really understand the whole blogging/YouTube thing.

If you’ve managed to read this far down in the post, thanks for taking the time to read my post/blog and I will see you all again tomorrow night for blogmas day  16.
