Naturally, darling?

What I thought I'd share with you lovely ladies today is I'm having a bit of a hair crisis of late, do you ever feel like you've just gone through EVERY hairstyle and don't know where to go with it anymore? Well, I do.  My solution thus far has been ignoring the situation, and I'm a little bit scared of the hairdressers too, which sort of explains why I've not had a haircut since I started this blog!  I think it would be quite nice to grow it, but I've only ever had really long hair when there was dye (or at least a MASS of highlights!) involved and I was just stressing about roots and how it was in really bad condition.  For a while now I've just been focusing on getting it back to all of my natural colour and getting rid of a hideously short bob I had:
I really like it as well when you see people with thick long red hair, and I think it's a lot easier when you can just tie your hair back in a top knot and not have to put loads of effort into straightening, and lets be honest - I dream of being able to have a fish plait a la Blake Lively, somewhat convinced that it will make me look like Blake Lively.  
Maybe not.
But on the other hand a couple of people have said I looked my best when I had shortish blond hair, and despite the maintenance there is something about being blonde that I love!  ANYWAY I'm biting the bullet and even if it's just for a trim I'm going to the hair dressers, so I thought it would be good to look through my old photos at all the hair styles to try and figure out what I like best.  There was some pretty terrible moves though hair wise, so I thought I'd share it; the good, the bad and the bleached, sort of like the hair timelines in COSMO. Warning: major poser alert! But this is me, 14 through to 21...

God, sorry for the my face overload!
If anyone fancies having a go of their own hair timeline then please leave me a link to your blog, I'd love to check it out! 
Any thoughts on what people think looks best would be great too, as long as it's not the bob! ;)

Until next time :)

Music love #1

I've not tried this out before, but I thought it might be quite good to do a lyrics post every once in a while, a bit like my Movie Love Quotes.  I tend not to like music so much for catchy guitar riffs or things like that, it's more when lyrics really reach out to me and I feel like I can relate.  So I'll kick off with a few of my old favourites:

Fleetwood Mac - Dreams

"Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It's only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering 
What you had, And what you lost
And what you had, And what you lost"

Joni Mitchell - A Case of You
"I'm frightened by the devil 
And I'm drawn to those ones

that ain't afraid 
I remember that time you told me you said
"Love is touching souls" 
Surely you touched mine 
'Cause part of you pours out of me 
In these lines from time to time 
Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine 
You taste so bitter and so sweet 
Oh I could drink a case of you darling 
And I would still be on my feet 
I would still be on my feet"

Prince - When Doves Cry
"How can you just leave me standing? 
Alone in a world that's so cold? 
Maybe Im just too demanding
Maybe Im just like my father too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
Shes never satisfied 
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry"

Does anyone else have any favourite lyrics that stick with them? 
Muchos love,

Strawberry Fields Forever...

It's now 6 days until I go back to Sheffield, waaaaa!  For the past few days I've been doing a LOT of lists of stuff to take, packing on and off and going to the shops to pick up MORE things, how organised?!  Me and my mum went to Liverpool on Sat so this is my little haul post :)
1. Professional Tweezers; £1.99 Superdrug
    Swear I've been through like 5 pairs of tweezers in the past few months,
    and none of them got adequate purchase!  When I got home I tried these    
    babies out and they're really good and well worth the price!
2. Coralista Blusher; £23.50 Benefit at Debenhams
    Its killed me to spend this much on makeup but I love Benefit and I've    
    really wanted this for a long time, so when I got a Debenhams voucher for 
    my birthday I'd figured I should just bite the bullet!
3. Coralista Lipgloss; £13.50 Benefit at Debenhams
    Thought I might as well go the whole hog, plus I'll be coordinating!
4. Batiste Dry Shampoo; £1.45 Superdrug
    I've never tried the Cherry flavour but it smells REALLY nice!
5. Oral B Electric Toothbrush and TriZone 4 Pack Replacement   
    £29.99 and £11.99
    This was the most saddening purchase of the day, now that I'm going to go  
    back I can't use my mum's anymore with a different head on it so I've had  
    to buy my own, ugh.  On the plus side though I've noticed my teeth are   
    looking a lot whiter, don't know if it's using an electric toothbrush or the 
    cutting back on the coke and red wine front, but either way I'm happy! 
6. Me trying out my new lipgloss!
7. Cream Slippers; £3.50 Primark
8. Polka Dot Shirt; £12 Primark
    Similarly to the Woodstock shirt crisis, I didn't know if the rivets on the 
    collar are something I can really pull off, but then I thought why not and  
    decided to buy it anyway.  I really loved Stella McCartney's polka dot     
    dresses that she designed for Kate Winslet and the like, and I figure this is
    probably the closest to Stella I can manage for a while!
9. Duvet Cover; £7 ASDA and Single Fitted Sheet; £3.50 Primark
    Do you like?  My mum treated me to some new bedding, hopefully my new
    room will look really nice, I'm pretty excited to be moving in now.
Tomorrow my mum has got the day off work so we're going to watch Brave at the movies haha, big kids much?!
Until next time folks,

My day in pictures...

Today has been one of those awful days when loads of jobs build up and it's been terrible!  British gas' voice recognition doesn't seem to register my accent as english for some reason, but on the plus side Sky is sorted, I've registered for Uni and I've sent all my thank you letters for my birthday - do you like my Cath Kidston stationary? I'm in love! As well I was going for a bit of an experiment on my nails and the jury's still out on them, has anyone else tried Zooey Deschanel inspired French Manicures?
Also, it is now 10 more days until I move into halls and I am officially bricking it. Don't tell anyone.
Muchos love,
