Short and Sweet

Short and Sweet

Wow, it’s definitely been a while, I can’t believe how quickly time flies and how long it’s been since I’ve made an appearance on here, but I’ve been so busy with Faux, getting our new site in place and getting ready for some travelling this week.

I’m really looking forward to be heading back to the UK to see Reem for something super exciting but I’m sure she’d like to be the one to fill you all in on that soon so on that note I’ll keep this short and sweet, which evidently is not the case for my hair in these pictures.

Dress Me Up

Dress Me Up

I have been so hectic lately that I can’t even remember the last time I sat on my couch and just did nothing. Damn I miss those cosy afternoon naps on my couch! I’m not complaining though, I secretly love being busy, and at the moment that’s what I’m going to be, consistently busy for the next few months. With all that’s on my plate, I feel like I could easily be going deeper and deeper into a pit of madness, but instead, I’m more stress free and optimistic then I have been in years. So in practice of my new found positive attitude, I decided to rock a dress today, bare in mind I rarely wear dresses and London is feeling slightly menopausal weather wise as of late, so if that isn’t positive thinking I don’t know what is.

Even though I was stretching my comfort zone in a dress, I still kept it quite ‘me’ with a leather jacket, flats and the ring stack I curated for the Pandora #MyRingsMyStyle campaign I did back in May.

The Long Bob

The Long Bob

So, I cut my hair! I’ve always had super long hair, even when I was a little girl (a part from one very bad experience which put me off going short for a really long time) so this one is a big change for me. I’m still getting used to it, even though it’s been a few weeks now but I secretly love it. Reem was on my case for so long about cutting it short, and I’m glad I listened to her, (she followed suit not too long after me). I guess it was time for a change and something as simple as getting a few inches chopped off can make the biggest difference to your look and confidence. I went for the long bob look which is such a huge trend right now and I have to owe some thanks to our heaving board of ‘Hair, Nails and Face’ images over on Pinterest for endless hair-spirations.
