Whats in store for 2014 ..... Hairdressing Training ...

Firstly ..... Happy New Year Bloggers !!!
So what have you all got in the pipe line for 2014?
I'm excited for this year, I will be starting my diploma in Hair Design
I have always been interested in hairdressing, worked in a few hairdresser when I was younger, always cut. styled and coloured friends hair for them, started training in a salon when I was 16 but gave it up and now I think its time to go back to it, hopefully I will have the time to keep you all updated on my progress....
here's some of what I've been up to so far.....

#1 before and after, cut to a bob and smoothed out 
#2  took the bobbed hair and dyed it red and styled it in a 70s Charlie's angels inspired do  
#3 long Glam glossy waves
#4 & #5 The Ombre effect

#5 makeover hair before and after, dyed hair in the darkest brown, cut a fringe and a blow-dry, finished off with twisting the ends with straighteners
#6  practicing 1940s Victory Rolls 
#7 1920s Finger waves
#8 retro style shampoo and set

Stone Roses Finsbury Park

So...... I have been wanting to see The Stone Roses since I can remember, but was a little too young in the early 90s, but have always listened to them, and played them many a-time when djing
I was looking forward to Fri 7th June since we booked the tickets last November!
Very disappointed by the line-up was not happy that Dizzee Rascal was on the bill! He didn't go down well at all..... there was about 60,000 sitting in Finsbury Park with a look on their face like 'When is this gonna end' Mine included!!
The rest of the time there was a great atmosphere in the park,
The Stone Roses more than made up for it, we had to move position as we started off  to the left of the stage and the sound was terrible!
not the best gig ever, but glad I got to cross The Stone Roses off the list of bands I want to see live
just wish I'd booked the Saturday instead. I mean..... Miles Kane.....P.i.L ...& Johnny Marr!!
Heres a couple of photos I managed to take, as the nice man on the gate let me take in my camera (no cameras were allowed, unless press)
Thank for reading..... any of you lot go?
 I'd love to hear your stories from previous gigs!

style file: Kate Hudson Golden Globes / waist belts / outfit

I just loved what Kate Hudson wore to Golden Globes in January

I will definately be recreating this for daytime
as can you with a simple black maxi dress
golden statement necklace and Desdemona Vintage has some fabulous belts on Etsy at the moment that would finish off that look perfectly

whos style did you like at the golden globes?

Hot Picks......Jake Bugg / Parka / Maybelline concealer

Just a quick post here, to share a few things that I'm lovin' at the moment
lemme know what you think...
Listening to.....
Jake Buggs album, I kept hearing, what I now know is Lightning Bolt, last summer but I wasn't sure who it was, I thought it was old song, with its country/skiffle influence
then found out it was this fella
his albums great with a real vintage sound
The modern Donovan in my opinion
and he's only around 18!! all the songs are written by him
(Country Song is one of my faves, simple but brilliant)
its worth buying, Lightning bolt maybe a little overplayed now, as I'm hearing it everywhere, every shop you go into, every bloody advert and even in the Cafe on Eastenders
but the album tracks are sweet!

Buying ......
I bought this light weight Fish Tail Parka jacket the other week and I love it surprisingly the colour seems to go with anything
Parka's are an iconic fashion item made popular with the Mods when they needed to keep there smart gear from getting splattered with mud when on their scooters
so I feel this will never date and I'm gonna get a lot of wear out of it
and it was only £25 from Matalan
 Canvas Jacket
Oasis do a similar one...

but I don't think its as nice and its £70!

lastly just a quick bit of beauty for you make-up freaks
Maybellines 24hr Super Stay Concealer is a new fave of mine
will defo be buying this again
a little goes a long way and it covers really well
(although looking at other reviews it seems its not so great if you have dry skin)

that is all
