Review: Salon Confidential Hair Extensions.

I need to start this review by telling you that I don’t have a very good relationship with hairdressers. I think it started when I was 13 and I decided that I wanted to have a funky, cropped hair-do. My hairdresser failed to tell me that a) a child with a head like a basketball will not ever look elfin, even with a crop and b) a person with not one, not even two, but …

A Right Royal Idiot.

I’ve been steering clear of the internet today, specifically Facebook and Twitter. I simply cannot be arsed to get drawn into some petty debate about how William absolutely deserves to have a fuck-off great big wedding, paid for by the serfs, because he does a bit of charity work. But then I thought, hey, I can write it all on my blog, where I don’t have to listen to the flag-waving, jingoistic bullshit that’s been …

The Weaker Sex?

We had a visit from my Dad last week so that he could drop off Sausage’s Easter egg, and while he was here we got onto an interesting topic. Sausage was playing happily with her toys and my Dad mentioned that he knew a kid who wouldn’t be allowed to play with pretty much any of the toys that Sausage has, because their Mum doesn’t believe in gender specificity. At first I agreed, it wasn’t …

Normal Service Will be Resumed Shortly…

I’ve been looking back at my blog and it’s occurred to me that, over the last few months, almost everything I’ve posted has been a meme, guest post, sponsored post, review or announcement about something else, and whilst it’s all really important and great, I feel like I’ve lost sight of what I started this blog for, which was as a personal outlet and place to use as an overspill for all of the things …

JoJo’s So-Called Friends

I got a rather mysterious tweet from the lovely JoJo over at JoJo’s So Called Life this morning, asking me to look at a link. So I did and realised she was inviting me to join in with her brand spanking new linky called JoJo’s So Called Friends. The basic gist of it is that we all write a post about our friends and link up once a fortnight to share our stories. This couldn’t …

Flashback Friday

In honour of Cafe Bebe’s 500th blog post, and her photo which represents beginnings, I thought I’d use this one which is from the beginning of mine and Husbands’ relationship. This photo was taken on 17th June 2006, the day before my 22nd birthday when Husband and I went to London to watch our favorite band, Foo Fighters, play a massive concert in Hyde Park. We had an amazing day, and when they played Everlong …

Q&A

It’s official. I love memes. I especially love memes where I get to talk about myself at length, so when the wonderful Super Amazing Mum tagged me to answer a whole series of questions about myself, I was chuffed! Originally devised by Mrs Lister,who admits to have nicked the questions from The Guardian Weekend Magazine, she’s hoping that we’ll all learn loads of new blackmail-worthy dirt information about each other, so here goes! Which living …

Facebook Friday

The wonderful Susanne at Ghostwriter Mummy (some of you may know her from a little site called Maternity Matters, too…!) is hosting her weekly linky, Facebook Friday, where we all go and link up our Facebook pages to get ourselves a bit more ‘Like’ love. Why don’t you head on over there and check out the Facebook pages of all of the lovely people who’ve linked up, and maybe gain yourself a few more followers …
