A fresh start… ♥

Hello my lovely readers! I’m so sorry its been a while since my blog has seen some action. I can’t work out if its because life has passed me by, or life has been too busy. Either way, I’m back now and with awesome news!

For months, I’ve been desperate to create a pretty, eye catching, wonderfully inspiring blog. The first blog I ever made was on Freewebs when I was about nine (if I could call it a blog, it was more a page to share my girly obsessions! Oh wait…). Since then I have gone on a whirlwind with every blogging network possible. Luckily, WordPress has been my saving grace as I was definitely close to giving up! Also, working for someone else’s website, really gives you the blog bug! (Feel free to check out the lovely lady herself!)

So, what is this awesome news you ask? I guess its been since I last blogged, I’ve really had to think about where I want this to go and what I want to do with it. How do I make this different or my blog? Its so easy to route through other blogs and feel like yours is crap, or its terrible compared to theirs and think whats the point? Its always good to have healthy competition, but I got to the point where I thought mine would never be good enough to carry on. However, many words of encouragement from my boyfriend later, changed my way of thinking and I started to put plans into action! Why let talent go to waste right?

This is my new plan. Every month, starting in August, I will be having three guest bloggers! Two are covering specific topics, and one free reign! I shall be including my own inspiration related posts and more tutorials. Every guest blogger I feature, will have two slots. One day for an interview, the other to give us a tutorial on their chosen idea. Ideally, giving you a lovely connection!
I’m all about supporting other bloggers. The internet is a tough place, so sticking together is what I wish to do with everyone I meet and greet. If you wish to be a apart of this, please contact me here.

I don’t wish to give too much away, such as the topics and who I have planned so far, but I am really excited about where this is going and what could come of this. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan and, watch this space! Join me on August 8th with my first guest blogger. In the mean time, expect some stuff from myself.

Until then,

Happy Blogging!

 

 

 

Weekly Event: Hair Competition! ♥

When I sign up to do something, I always regret it straight after but can’t bring myself to pull out. This leaves me in a bit of a pickle, right? However, this time, as scared as I was, its definitely something I won’t forget!

I’ve always heard of hair competitions and know a few people who have done one in the past, but still wasn’t sure what to expect. Even the lovely lady I was doing it for had no idea. (Kind of reassuring knowing I wasn’t the only one!).

The day started with each stylist and model in front of a glass mirror, setting up their stations whilst eyeing up the competition. I have to say, I didn’t realise how competitive I am until that moment. As soon as we were all given the go ahead by the judges, it was a rush of who could get to the sinks first! Luckily, we won that part! Hour and a half later, all the models, including myself are all dressed, hair styled to perfection and make up smoothed on, ready to go.

What came next is the part that nearly made me RUN! I had to catwalk…
I’m not one for posing, showing off, strutting my stuff at all. I feel the fact that we all got choreographed beforehand really added on the pressure, not forgetting that it was in front of quite a big audience! eek!
About 30/40 of us all queued in a tiny space backstage, all shaking with nerves, praying we didn’t fall over.

Despite it being quite a nerve wracking experience, I’m definitely glad I said yes and need to say yes more often to everything I’m given the chance to do! Whats the point in turning something down because its scary? It gave me so much confidence and a little life boost!

Next time someone says ‘hey, wanna do me a favour?’ or ‘I’d love to do this, would you be up for it?’ instead of letting those anxieties take over, take control and say ‘yes!’
