Favourite Hair Styles

Hey Internet Friends,
Today I thought I'd share with you my favourite go-to hairstyles for everyday.

I always love a classic high ponytail. Sleek and sophisticated, this minimal effort style always looks great. This tends to be my go-to style if I'm running late for something or just can't be bothered to put too much effort into doing my hair.

Recently, I have been putting my hair in a bun a lot. Buns are so versatile and can be put on the top, back or side of your head. They can easily be accessorised with bows or be made to look cute and messy.

Another go-to hair style of mine is plaits. Again, they're so easy to style in a variety of ways as there is so many different types of plaits. If you are struggling to do them, there are tons of YouTube tutorials to help you out.

A final one of my favourite hair styles is the half-up, half-down one as it's just so simple and perfect for adding a bit of volume to your do. It also really helps keep your hair out of your face as well as helping to frame it.

So, what are your favourite hair styles? What hairstyles do you choose on a daily basis? Let me know by commenting or through social media (links on my contact me page).

Thoughtful Thursday - Growing Up

Hey Internet Friends,
Thoughtful Thursday is back and this time is about growing up.

Growing up is a strange concept. While you're young you forever want to be older. No matter how many people tell you that you never fully appreciate the simplicity of young life. When your biggest decision is what to play with, life is simple.

As you go through school, the days become more intense. Exams become much harder and more important. You begin to face decision on qualifications to work towards and which career you want.

That's all well and good unless you don't know. You begin to fear getting older as the decisions get tougher and tougher. Large life goals loom ahead and forever get closer. The uncertainty of things like illness, fight and death throw you off course sometimes but you just have to keep growing.

I may have made growing up seem all gloomy but I can't wait till one day I have a family of my own, a job I love and to live the life I was destined to receive.
