Hearty Sailor


Ah hoy there matey's (is that what sailors say?)
Hope you're all having a great week so far. i cant believe we're nearing mid week already! 
I have absolutely nothing of any interest to say today, so i will bore you a little with the reality that is my life today...
i got a fringe trim today, which is nice, hellooo world i can see you again!
i felt like a sailor in this outfit, a pretty girly one who wears hearts on her skirt
i could not wait to finish work today(but thats the same as every day i work)
i have taken waaaayy to long editing these pictures and done my own head in!
that is all.




Jumper: Topshop
Skirt: Next
Shoes: F&F, Tesco


i had a guest come out to see me have photos done






this boy loves to outside (and in his slippers too!)

he cracks me up, 2 seconds later he legged it up the street!


Couple of cool things:
Lots of people in bloggy world talking about no heat curling, well i did it from this video, and it worked AMAZINGLY! i awoke excited to see the results and then proceeded in taking off the headband thinking it may not have worked, but to my surprise the curls were gorgeous and bouncy. I'm addicted! No heat, little effort and 5mins of time equals my perfect hair style!
This was the end of the day and they had dropped a bit to wavy curls but still held out all day .
When i went to the hairdressers to get a fringe(bangs) trim, she was impressed. I impressed a hairdresser! i gave her the link and told her to try it. I know some people have tried it and not been impressed but i have thick frizzy hair so it works a treat for me.

And my other groovy news:


After a little Tweet conversation with Joy they featured me in the Kitty jumper on their blog! Have you guys seen their stuff? Seriously good! I think i have my eye on a least 6 things! its mothers day, my wedding anniversary and easter coming up so i think i may send specific links to hubby to see if he gets the hint!

Annnyyways enough about me how are you??


Much Love

  9. I love the pretty sailor outfit! Your little one even is color coordinated with you too :) Congratulations on the blog feature, I will have to go and check out their stuff. I have been wanting to try no heat curling too! Usually I just do two french braids , but that makes waves more than curls! I tried the sock bun thing but got impatient and checked after an hour (you are supposed to leave it in over night- ha! No wonder there weren't any curls!) Anyway, adorable blog and I hope you have a fabulous day!

    1. Nicole, you should totally try it, its super simple and if it doesnt work all you'll have is wavy hair(that can be easily straightened over!)

  16. Can I just say, you are absolutely gorgeous! I've been dying to get my hands on a sailor jacket like that, but no such luck yet. You look adorable...like straight out of a storybook.

    I'm very intrigued by the no heat curling. Oh gosh, my dry hair could use it in the worst way. I need to see what this is all about...going to watch the video now.

    PS. Your little man is the cutest:)

    Have a sweet week darling gal! xx Marisa
