Dear Diary – Our week Ocotober 19th

This week has been mainly about hair and a wedding!

I don’t really bother about my hair. It’s long with lots of split ends and it needs colouring but I just tend to tie it back out of the way and only let it back down again when I’m going to bed.

Dear Diary


The girls, however, love headbands, hair clips and trying different styles and I have to admit, I’m not that good at doing hair!

We found some videos that had been shared on Facebook and one of the designs was a hair bow with the hair actually made to look like a bow. They made it look super easy but when I tried on Kaycee’s and Ella’s hair it was rubbish.
It wasn’t easy at all and it just wouldn’t work.

I then tried a different style, a braid that’s like a fishtail but is done differently apparently (I have no idea how to do a fishtail so wouldn’t know the difference!) and it still turned out rubbish.

We spent Wednesday night doing the curls (with the tongs Ant bought me when we were getting married nearly 10 years ago!) so we could try different styles and see which they liked best.
After discovering it was going to take hours to do the curls with the tongs we turned to YouTube and decided to do rag curls.
They worked brilliantly ๐Ÿ™‚

Moving away from hair because quite frankly I’ve had enough of it, I lost 1.5lb at Slimming World on Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚
I don’t think the scales are going to be quite so nice next week after the amount of wine and champagne I drank yesterday but if I can stay the same I’ll be happy!

    Those curls seemed to stay for ages, I mus admit I prefer rag rollers to tongs any day!

    You all look wonderful at the wedding. The rag curls were very successful. The only time I curled my daughters hair it took forever and they all fell out in a few hours. Never again!

    Rags are the best ever and oldest hair method I know, my Granny used to rag my hair, I did for my daughter, she does her own and it looks so good, last for days too. Good going on the weight loss, hope you maintain this week, you never know.

    I can't do hair but your girls' hair looks fabulous. Curls fall straight out of my hair and my daughter's!
