Pretty Lovelies: Hair Dye

I have had a bad day at work. Actually I have had a few bad weeks at work recently. I am changing jobs and working my notice period. This involves every problem in the department being placed on my desk for me to solve. Stress and misery like this generally leads to me feeling restless and then this leads to me wanting to make a change.

At the moment this has resulted in the purchase of 2 boxes of copper hair dye (I got 2 as they were on offer). I used to have my hair copper and loved it. I'm not sure how to describe the current colour of my hair, as it goes through a lot of changes, but it is probably a dark reddish brown.

Once I have coloured my hair I will post some before and after pictures. Copper here I come...

Update 4

How things have changed, I have gone from such a long list of men that Daisy had to tabulate them, to basically 2 guys. I think the key to dating these people is to meet them and see who I meet that I want to jump over the table and mount! I have not had that yet, but is that because I have generally become a lot more laid back or that I don’t really care as much?

At one point recently I had considered Speed Dating, and I was so blaze about it. However the times didn’t fit with my plans so I’ll go to the next one, totally no big deal. Meeting people and making awkward first date conversation is no different to making conversation with a client. You smile and try and draw on the little information you know about them so far so as to fill enough time that it becomes easy!

Tea for Nepal

The other week I received a lovely email from a friend asking me if I wanted to come along and support an Afternoon Tea event to raise funds for Nepal in conjunction with Unicef. How nice of her was that!!

It was a great event! the tickets were £20 and then there were cocktails, food, a raffle and a silent auction. The afternoon was held in the Dovecot studios. I had never been in the Dovecot before, it is a tapestry studio space and gallery. Previously the space had been an old Victorian swimming pool with a viewing level. The event was held on this level and it was a lovely bright day.

Items to feel good about

I found myself walking past a big health store the other day. It was payday and I was feeling like a little browse so I popped in. I like the idea of being good to my body and feeding it only good clean foods (although in practice that rarely happens). Browsing in the "Superfood" isle I came across some packets of spirulina. I don't know much about it, other than it is supposed to be good for you and people put it in smoothies. I purchased a pack to see what difference it makes for me and because it was in a multibuy offer I also picked up some ground flaxseed and goji berries to add into the smoothies also.

I have started pinning some green juice recipes to a pintrest board and I will try one very soon. Any recommendations are welcome.

The Bachelorette ep 1 and 2 thoughts

What can I say? I am a big fan of the Bachelor (and most US reality TV for that matter) and after the last season, hearing that Kaitlyn and Britt would both be contending to be the Bachelorette, ensured that I would be tuning in to see how it all turns out.

Update 3


It has been a while since we were here, talking about my love life.

I think something clicked in me recently. I went through the holidays with this feeling of needing to find a replacement for the ex and that getting back on the horse is what you had to do once you break up with someone to prove that you had moved on. I don’t have this feeling anymore. In the last few weeks I suddenly feel chilled out about the whole thing and very ‘what will be, will be’ about the whole dating process. With this in mind I have cut all dead weight out of the below and I now have 2 potentials, so let us update –
