The fashion files: January 2017.

It’s been so easy, and fun, to make more of an effort to wear all the clothes I never usually wear. Even if some days I put something nice on and do nothing more than pop up to the supermarket or tidy the house, at least they’re being worn. I don’t take a photo every ...

The hair extensions diary part 2: pros and cons.

It’s now been a few weeks since I had the hair extensions put in, and there are definitely what I would consider downsides, although it could just be a case of needing some more time to become fully accustomed to them. I also think that Summer might not be best time for hair extensions, but then maybe ...

The Hair Extensions Diary: part 1.

After trying lash extensions {great for a week til I picked them all off while watching TV one night} and nail extensions {not so great when you can’t scratch an itch} I decided I may as well do as my hairdresser had been begging me to do for months and try hair extensions.

P

Pretty in pink.

Sometimes you can just be chilling on a Sunday evening, watching a movie, relaxing, when from out of nowhere a thought can just appear in your head from, LITERALLY, out of nowhere. A thought like, maybe I should dye my hair pink. Since then I’ve looked at so many pictures of rose gold/pink/candy floss hair ...

Brows glorious brows!!!

After two attempts and being thwarted by mega storms both times, I finally made it to the beautician for my eyebrow extensions!!!! Basically it’s a first of it’s kind in Australia service that uses human hair and very light glue to fill in missing eyebrows. You can create a whole new set if you have ...
