A little personal touch

So I bought my laptop in October 2017 and for about 3 months it looked pretty boring on the outside.

For those wondering it’s an Asus Transformer Mini.

So according to my photo album in January 2018 I decided to jazz it up a bit with some stickers I’d found on Google and Pinterest.

It was very much based on social media, blogging, and of course Netflix.

I loved it but after 22 months it started to peel a little and it just didn’t look pretty to me anymore.

So I got some more self adhesive photo paper and this is what it looks like as of today

I love my chick flicks, music, sleep, YouTube, I own a cactus, love a good quote and my cute little niece is called Daisy so that’s why they are on there.

It’s nice to add a bit of character and a personal touch to things.

June Favourites

It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.

So here we go.

I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it

SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST

I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.

MILEY CYRUS

Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.

She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.

MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS

These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.

REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT

My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out 🙈

HUMMOUS

For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.

INSHOT

If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.

Thanks for stopping by

Here’s to July

Til next time

Stand out in the crowd

It’s boring being normal, I haven’t ever wanted to fit in… OK at school I did, didn’t we all though.

I don’t want to be a sheep and follow whatever trend is in fashion this spring /summer. Having exactly the same outfit on as someone else around your neck of the woods doesn’t scream individuality. I mean if you want to then that’s up to you, but me personally I like to be totally unique.

Here below you can see I’m not your average norm.

I cut my hair off and donated it to the little princess trust and its going to take forever to grow and colour won’t stay in at the mo cos of my health so I got these 3 wigs on amazon.

I don’t even mind that people will probably be able to tell its not my hair.

It’s all about being your own person and that’s what I’m doing 😊

Please don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone.

You may surprise yourself.

Hair transformation – Before and after

Today I thought I would take you on a hair journey…

This is from December last year where I couldn’t tie my hair up and the highlights were kind of ombre

Then I remember letting my hair colour grow out and in April/May time I treated myself to some highlights and I could actually wear my hair in a tiny ponytail. I did like it blonde for the summer, gives it that sunkissed look

Then I became ill over the summer and didn’t do anything to it apart from wash it and when it got long enough I was able to plait it which is always a hair goal in itself.

Once I got home from the hospital in the middle of November I picked up a box of hair dye from boots and because they didn’t have the colour I was after I just got a semi that was meant to be amber and came out quite brown and after about 6-7 washes was fading quite a bit.

Its now a few weeks before Christmas and I decided to brave it with the colour that I originally wanted to do it…

I ordered it on Boots.com apparently our local store is too small to stock all colours so bear that in mind if you don’t see the colour you want.

I am just keeping my fingers crossed it stays this colour

Loreal Preference – Brooklyn Copper Auburn just in case you were wondering.

Til next time….
