Tag Archives: Growing out short hair

A haircut for date night.

It was time for a color refresh yesterday and even though I am growing my hair it had got to the stage where I needed more shape.  The bob was getting a bit heavy so I had lots of layers added to blend it and make it easier to keep growing – it’s almost over my collar at the back now!

Thanks as always to the gorgeous Lauren at Plum Salon who got me out of there in time for my Brazilian appointment – Christmas takes some preparation!  In fact after reading MommyEnnui.com‘s latest post top of my wish list for Santa this year is painless, permanent, immediate removal of all my unwanted body hair!

My outfit for the day was rather festive – red and sparkles!

Last night we went out for dinner – a bit of romance before the Christmas mayhem begins.  I broke all the rules and wore my new Stuart Weitzman Highland boots with a short, tight, printed dress.  I felt quite boho though with my H&M gilet.  The boots are incredibly comfy and easy to wear – they made me feel pretty fabulous.  I think they are true to size – I’m wearing a US 8.5.  I have a pretty wide foot too and, contrary to many reviews, I don’t find them narrow at all.

It is miserable weather here today so I am going to curl up on the sofa with a box of Belgian chocolates and watch It’s a Wonderful Life again!  What is your favorite Xmas movie?

Feeling groovy.

I hope you all had an amazing long weekend.  Mine was spent by the pool chilling and having lots of fun with friends.  It feels a bit odd being back in regular clothes today.

I’m convinced my hair is benefiting from taking Biotin combined with the sunshine – it feels pretty long today – well long for short hair if you know what I mean.  I am determined to grow it over the summer and see how close I can get to a bob by Fall.  In the meantime it requires plenty of wax for tucking it behind the ears.  As I dried it this morning I felt inspired by the 70s and tried to make my flick as Farrah-like as possible at the front.  Gosh she was beautiful wasn’t she?

Going with the 70s theme I went with my Lotta from Stockholm clogs.  I love these shoes – they are incredibly comfortable and at $85 they are far cheaper than Swedish Hasbeens.  You can buy them here on Amazon or via the Lotta site.  I applied a couple of treatments of olive oil to these nude ones to age them a bit and make the leather a tad darker.  They also have a great Facebook page with regular updates on new styles here.
