A change...

After being stuck in the same routine and the same patterns for so long, sometimes you just need a change.

My long hair, although a total inconvenience, was kinda my safety blanket. After not cutting my hair for over a year it had reached the longest it had ever been, but also the least healthy it had ever been.



Having bleached the ends, my hair was just dead and so limp. Sure I could curl it and make it look all tousled and lovely, but it was just becoming a total pain, a change was needed.

Also after coming out of a relationship, I think its the perfect time for re-invention. Being stuck in a situation where I felt I couldn't make any changes to myself, constantly being told that he liked my hair and that I should cut it, I needed to be able to see my 'freedom' everyday when I look in the mirror as a reminder that good things can come out of heartbreak. (Im going to do a full post on whats been going on in my life at some point, if you'd like to hear?)

 
And so I woke up one day, booked an appointment at my favourite salon, and armed with pictures of mega babes like Alexa Chung, Suki Waterhouse and Patti Boyd, I said bye bye to my safety blanket.

I was shocked how unaffected I was! normally hairdressers fill me with fear, always scared they'll cut my hair too short, but really this time I didn't care, truthfully I didn't even care if it looked good or not I just needed a change, DESPERATELY!



However I was lucky as I love it! It does take a little more maintenance to keep volume and body to my hair, but Im so glad I took the leap. It makes me feel super Parisian and fabulous *flicks hair*

All im trying to say it, when something comes to an end take that as a cue to reinvent yourself and make some positive changes, even if it is just a haircut.

small changes are key on the road to recovery!

Hope everyone is doing well, and if you're ever struggling feel free to tweet or email me!
