Hair Glare! Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back – and I have the results! Can you believe every single vote was identical? Sure some had comments after, but it was a unanimous decision! So red hair it is! I used Schwarzkopf Palette, colour 678 – Ruby Red! It’s still dark – only just put it in, but give it a few washes and the ruby will really shine through! (Oh – and please ignore the lack of make-up. As I said, only just put it in.)


My New Look!

So Guys, and Girls? What do you think? Do you like it?


Hair Glare!

I got a serious shock today. I walk in after work to find Mum in the shower.  She comes out with cherry red hair! (Bearing in mind that she was grey/blonde when I left for work, with no colour in the house.) It seems to be going around! I’ve just heard that my friend has done hers today as well. Maybe its time I did mine. I’m seriously considering going bold, which would be a first for me. At the moment I have dark brown hair. What do you think of Fire Engine red? Let me know – and if enough people say go for it then I’ll post a picture up after I’ve done it tomorrow!


Me at the moment


Hater’s Alert!

Today is a perfect example of a day where everybody I meet hates me.

I went out clubbing with some friends last night where I downed a shot of Tequila, a Blue Lagoon cocktail, and a fishbowl of Sex on the Beach. Now I’m sure that mixture would be enough to knock many people on their knees, yet I was barely tipsy – and I could still walk in a straight line (while I could still walk thanks to the dancefloor).

Today is a whole new reason for everybody to hate me. Besides drinking enough to float a small vessel without getting drunk, I have the added bonus of never suffering from hangovers. There are tons of people from that club last night with their heads stuck down the toilet talking to God in the worst possible way, yet all I feel is a little bit tired from lack of sleep!

OK. Now it’s time for me to sit back and see how many people start hating on me because of this post! Hopefully there are a few of you though who will be laughing with me because you have the same problem (or gift)!

Over to you viewers!



Welcome to my new blog. You will find posts on writing tips and book reviews, as well as anything else I get it into my head to write. On the recommendations pages you will soon be able to find reviews from authors on the work I did editing their manuscripts. The site is still new, and I will probably add more to it as I go along.

Until then, welcome, and I hope to see you back here soon!
