Shop your Stash

"This is all about finding a gem in what you already own. This is to let go a little of the stress that comes with being a blogger - even if it is just once a month. Rummage through your beauty products and climb through those clothes draws. You might surprise yourself!"

This month we're thinking about summer and, for me, that means I want to keep my hair out of my face lest I end up like a big sweaty monster. 

I never ever EVER tie my hair back. Ever. Once, when I was about 6, I went to school with my hair in a ponytail and I was very excited. When I got in, I was a little bit late, so I ran to my desk and sat down. At this point the teacher came over to my desk, screamed in my face for being late and sent me outside. I stood in the corridor, cried and ripped out my ponytail. That, my friends, was the end of that.

I'm not ready to attempt the ponytail again, but I have been trying out new things, particularly with hair bands:

This first one is from the lovely Alice Vitrium. At only £3.50 this was a real bargain and one I can see getting lots of wear in the summer. 

Next up is my little bow hair band from New Look. It's so pretty, but I'm not really getting much wear out of it, possibly because I feel like a child when I've got it on?!

Last, but certainly not least, I received this beautiful cockatiel brooch/hair clip for Christmas, which I wore to a birthday a few months ago. I love love love this! It's not the sort of thing you can wear every day, but I might just give it a go. 

So yes, fuck you, Mrs Potts!
