Recognise the top? This sequin top has been my default Christmas outfit for the last 3 years and it's still going strong. See here and here. I love its bright colour, sequins and the fact that it hardly needs ironing. It also covers up one's upper arms a treat! This 2014 I've been ringing the changes with a new necklace (New Look - yes) last year's Christmas present (M & S black ankle boots) and a last minute turn up of the hem (credit Eammanuelle Alt). Plus, my black Boden skinny jeans complied once more, eager to fight another day. Dub a dub a dum a dum (credit Jona Lewie).
In other news my hair has been sulphate free since August and I've stuck at using alternatives to 'normal' shampoo for the last 4 months. However, it hasn't been easy. I wash my hair every few days with either hot water or an egg and occasionally with an organic shampoo. My hair feels greasy some days and I do still love the clean, swishy feeling of a thorough shampoo and condition. I may experiment further with the no-poo method in the new year. We''ll see. It's been harder than I anticipated. Whatever, I'm done with nasty sulphate shampoos and home dyeing my hair. Hello, new natural hair and colour (?) In the meantime, whilst my natural locks settle, I've been experimenting with adding curls to my bob. I asked my hairdresser to show me how. Here's his wonderful effortless work.
and here's mine.
It's frustrating this hair business...
