The Inversion Method Part 1 – Upside Down You’re Turning Me…

I came across the Inversion Method on Pinterest because people claiming they can grow their hair 1 inch in 1 week is pin worthy indeed. And yes, that is what they claim. Obviously you can’t verify the timeframe of people’s before and after. But as there doesn’t seem to be a wonder product that’s being advertised, I can’t see why people would lie. Oh how gullible I am! I suppose it could be a conspiracy between all the hair oil companies in the world. However, I’ll try not to be too cynical. There are a lot more people out there…

Song Of The Month – June 2017 – Pass Out by Tinie Tempah

LINK TO THE VIDEO This song reminds me of like four years worth of going out. It took a long time before DJs stopped playing this one.It’s one of those songs that everyone of a certain age knows all the words too. And when I say a certain age, I’m not talking old even. If it came on when I was out now (on the extremely rare occasion I go out), this is STILL my jam! I know I’m talking about this like it’s an ancient classic but I swear when I get old and frail and am stuck in…

My Hair Routine: Taking Notes

I work in admin so I think my immediate reaction to things that are new and detailed is to take notes. I think my reaction to pretty much anything is to take notes. I used to have bits of paper all over the place. Then I got a bit more organised and would frantically scribble in notebooks and then scribble out what I had achieved, leading to pages of text you couldn’t read as I’d crossed it all out. Then I noticed the notes section in my phone and had all my notes categorised on there. But these days, I…

Shouty McShoutyface

The picture is a bit over the top, I don’t ever get that angry but it was hard to properly convey the emotion without going to the extreme end of the spectrum. I am mostly a content person, I promise. However, I am on a personal quest not to shout so much at my kids. I find myself being super zen, nothing can trouble me, throw as much as you want, don’t eat your dinner, refuse to get your nappy changed, don’t brush your teeth, when they fall out, see if I care and I’m cool. Then the littlest thing…

End Of The Tube Review: Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Peel Off Face Mask

Sunday nights have become my Face Mask Night and I really look forward to it. I’m not one to primp and pamper myself but I am learning as time goes by that I need to do more for me. When I will fit all this in? I don’t know, but its needed. Every Sunday I spread whatever on my face and relax because what else can I do? I certainly can’t do housework – that’s a no no. Pick up children – well they’re in bed. Change nappies -nope it’s break time from that. Write my blog – I’m too…

My 1000 Word Project #6

“Hi.” She didn’t say it in a friendly way but he looked up as he knew that voice. He had yearned to hear that voice again. “Right back atcha.” He smiled hopefully. “I didn’t see you up there.” “If I’d realised that, I wouldn’t have said anything.” She looked away hoping he would now go away. But he felt he needed to plead his case, explain the inexplicable. “Please don’t be like that.” “Like what?” “Like that.” “I’m not being like anything.” They’d had this conversation before. Sierra frustrated him to the point of absolute distraction. He hated that she…

Progress Photo

Still at it 6 months later. Growing slowly but definitely growing. I’m most definitely below the 0.5 inches a month that’s the average but I’m starting to get to grips with the realisation that’s not me. And I should be happy I’m not average, right? There isn’t much I can do about it, possibly the Inversion Method which supposedly will increase growth to 1 inch a week. What?! When I say I suppose I’ll give that a try, what I mean is that I will most certainly be doing that every day until the end of time! I’ll talk about…

Song Of The Month – May 2017 – It Takes More by Miss Dynamite

LINK TO THE VIDEO When I’m singing along to this song, the hands are going, the lip gets curled, the neck gets a little loose. What can I say, it’s a classic. The album this came off is pretty decent, my mum bought it, she was a bit of a CD junkie however, I am not going to say anything negative about that because it meant that I had access to music I couldn’t afford to get myself. Yes, there was a time when your first port of call to hear something wasn’t the internet. It is old now and…

Drink, drink, drink!

You need to drink water. You are made mostly of water. It doesn’t really taste of anything so it shouldn’t be hard to get your fill. Right? Well no. I don’t mind water at all. I actually quite like it but somehow can’t drink what I’m supposed to drink, ever. From being a young kid I was under the impression that you need to drink 8 glasses a day. I never knew how big these glasses were and how much you fill the glass etc. After a very little amount of research I found a formula for how much you…

50 Posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I haven’t quit my blog yet, yay!!! I’ve invested a little money and a lot of time into this blog so to let it go to rack and ruin would be an immense shame. However, I’m still surprised that I’m as enthusiastic as I was when I started researching hosting, registering domain names, writing my first blog post, taking pictures etc. The novelty definitely hasn’t worn off yet of being able to say “Oh yea, I’ve got a blog.” I was daunted, excited and completely naive to what I was actually setting out to do when I started. Sometimes…
