what a disappointment summer has
I'm no sun-worshipper but the amount
of rain we've had is enough to dampen
anyone's spirits! Most of the pretty
summer outfits I bought have never
seen the light of day and I don't
think I wore sandals more than half
a dozen times.
Perhaps you had it a little better
where you were but I doubt it scored
highly in the sunshine stakes. Still,
as usual, the two weeks we spent
on the beautiful south coast were
as glorious as ever.
I must say. I'm really lucky when
it comes to holiday weather. It
doesn't seem to matter what the
weather does before or after the
annual holiday but we always get
beautiful sunshine when we're away.
Still it's not really enough to
sustain you through months and months
of endless rain.
I'm off to a family wedding at the
weekend and I'm seriously thinking
of wearing a rain coat and thermal
underwear. And you can forget the
floppy hat - where we live its always
windy and it's bound to blow off
and land in a puddle. I'll have
to make do with some firmly secured
that my hair's anything to look
at just now. It seems to be going
through another one of its awkward
phases again, it won't do a thing
I tell it and no amount of 'taming'
seems to work. I keep telling myself
it's 'hormonal' and that I'll grow
out of it, but it's actually been
the bane of my life for as long
as I can remember. It's just a bigger
bane than usual at the moment.
Actually, I can probably blame the
weather for that too. Hair like
mine that has a tendency to frizz
really hates damp, windy weather
so it's not surprising really. Oh
well, maybe we'll have a dry winter
and we can enjoy crisp, frosty mornings
and hope for a better year next
seems that 'short' is back
in again when it comes to hair this
season. I'm sure we're all aware
that Posh has had her locks cut
'pixie' style again - I must say,
I think it suits her shorter - but
it seems its all the rage elsewhere,
I've seen several previously long
haired celebrities that have had
their hair cut into short bobs and
at a recent 'do' that
I went to many of the young girls
were sporting the same style. My
friend has recently sent pictures
of her wedding and all four bridesmaids
had short, straight bobs each tucked
behind the ears. Even my ultra-fashionable
niece, who usually wears the longest
hair extensions imaginable, had
them removed in favour of a shoulder
length bob. It is a style I particularly
like actually but alas not one that
my curly, very fine hair will hold.
It's also an easy style to manage
for those with relatively straight
hair and looks good on everyone
except those with a particularly
round, full face.
If you do have 'chubby chops' wear
your bob longer than the jaw line
to draw the eye downwards and have
it side parted without a fringe
(a fringe makes round faces even
If your hair is very fine then stick
to a really short bob to avoid the
ends 'disappearing' and if you have
a lot of hair then the choice is
really yours, thick hair will hold
a sleek, bobbed style very well.
If you do like the idea of having
the chop then remember that a bobbed
style always looks better when the
hair is in tip top condition and
able to reflect a shine so it's
worth taking a little extra care.
you're after some great costume
this season you could do worse than
look in M&S at the moment. They
have a fab new range of chunkier
jewellery to go with winter sweaters
in absolutely gorgeous colours.
I've fallen in love with so many
pieces. I'll need a suitcase to
take them home.
The necklaces are really lovely
and most have matching items - an
idea I always go for. I think I
may have to narrow my choices down
but if I can't, then they'll come
in really useful for great presents
at reasonable prices!
