When I go through something, I write about it. I always have done. I’ve kept paper diaries and journals since I was a young child and the pages consisted of “had smiley faces for lunch in school it was good”, through to “*insert emo band lyrics here*” in my teens, an online diary within a … Continue reading We had IVF… and it didn’t work
Ah, the fringe (or bangs, if you're from the other side of the pond). The Marmite of the hairdressing world.

My ultimate favourite bag for the weekend (and every day really if I'm honest) is my Cambridge Satchel. Oh, I have deep love for my satchel. I have always had a penchant for the more traditional things in life, including satchel style bags.
