Thursday Ten: The Struggles We Go Through When Having A Fringe

If you're reading this and you're American you're probably wondering what on earth a fringe is?!  Well, I think you call them bangs which I think sounds really funny but then you probably think fringe is rather funny too.

I haven't got a fringe at the moment but I've had my fair share in the past.  I actually really like them but I just find the upkeep a bit much, even with a sister as a hairdresser!  Here are the main struggles I think we can all agree on:

1.  It gets in your eyes.  My hair grows pretty quickly and I found I'd have to have my fringe cut every other week else it would be in my eyes and I'd be doing that flicking my head back thing to move it and eventually pull a muscle in my neck.

2.  When working out, in a hot club or country it sticks to your forehead and looks so unattractive!

3.  If you pin it back to get it out of the way for said workout or club it just looks odd and sticks up everywhere.

4.  You're constantly styling it because otherwise it goes out of place, especially first thing in the morning after being slept on!

5.  If you colour your hair the roots always look worse in the fringe.

6.  You're always having to wash it because it gets greasy quicker where you're constantly touching it and STYLING it.

7.  When you are finally bored of your fringe and you want to grow it out the growing staging seems to take forever and you never know how to style it.

8.  Sometimes it will just part in the centre for no reason and makes you look like you have curtains!

9.  If you have sensitive skin it can cause irritation and make you itch.

10.  It can make you break out in spots if it gets greasy but at least you can hide them!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
