Just a trim?

So here's the thing. For about 4 or 5 years now I've been determined to cultivate super long, super ginge "Mermaid hair". It's been a running joke amongst friends and is often commented on by Bathroom Strangers. Bless those compliment bearing Bathroom Strangers, the ultimate ego boost.

My hair stylist, the phenomenal Sharon from Paul Stafford, bless her every time I go in has had the challenge of trying to keep it as healthy as possible whilst living up to my demands of cutting only the bare minimum to my damaged ends.

Yeah... Not this time.  



This time I said "go for it" and boy did we! 

A 70s Shag cut with blonde through the back and ends so that when the mood takes me I can put the crazy colours I have stashed through it. Sharon informed me that in Stafford the Shag is known is "The Melter" due to the abstract nature of the layers and the constant need for the stylist to switch up their angles. Having been told for many years how much of a head melter I am myself, I think me and this cut shall be friends for a long while. 



Just a little different. 


This morning I'm still loving it. The social media response has been crazy and makes me think I should get my hair cut more often! 

I'm super grateful to Sharon for my cut and Cheryl for my colour. I can't recommend Stafford Hair enough! I'd say everyone should go there but that would only mean that they'd be too busy for me and all the many friends I have that already go. Check out their Instagram @WeAreStaffordHair and you'll understand just how fab they are. 

In the mean time we shall memorialise the Mermaid hair. Gone but not forgotten. 

RIP

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
