I want a crop/bob/pob...

First of all, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!

I would like to go back to my natural colour of medium brown as I'm sick of always having dry, damaged hair as well as all the maintenance (and money) my hair requires.
I was thinking the easiest - and quickest - way to do this would be to cut my hair shorter.

I love all the funky modern crops but I'm worried they won't suit me. At the moment my hair is about 11 inches long...I was planning
on growing it longer but if I want to have my natural colour back it might be better to cut it.

What do you think? Has anybody been through this befor
e? Here are some hairstyles I like...

Inspiring photos

I love these photos, they remind me so much of my childhood & growing up in the country. I was a real little country bumpkin when I was a kid, always asking for more animals and I remember begging my mum for a horse. I still have a love of animals and even though I live in the city now, I miss the country lifestyle.

I am really interested in photography and would love to do a photography course. If you have done any courses or are passionate about photography I would love to hear from you :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Tonight I went to carols by candlelight in the city, so I'm feeling very festive right now...

Sex and the City

When I was out Christmas shopping today, I saw a Sex and the City movie coffee table book and I want it! It's definitely something I'm adding to my wish list. Its probably been out for quite a while but it's the first time I've seen it!

I have a complete fascination with this show, its so unique and portrays the characters so accurately. I hope I'm as fashionable as these ladies when I reach my thirties!

here are some of my favourite clips...

Gemma Ward

I love these photos of Gemma Ward, they look so natural and summery.
I'm interested in seeing her in the movie, The Black Balloon, which also stars Toni Collette, one of my favourite actors. Has anybody seen it?

Secret Diary of a Call Girl

I started watching Secret Diary of a Call Girl a couple months ago on youtube, when I saw an episode on tv one night. Although prostitution is something I'd never personally consider, the show really fascinates me.

The characters are so diverse and interesting, the suspense is thrilling (who will be behind the door...) and her lifestyle is like no other person I've come into contact with. But what intrigues me even more is how she seems to be so "normal" - not a word I really like using - but if you saw "Hannah" walking down the street, you'd never pick it. It certainly challenges your preconceived notions of prostitution and the stereotypes attached to the title, 'prostitute'. Belle de Jour wasn't forced into prostitution due to poverty or substance abuse issues, for her it was a choice, and something she even enjoys.

I am considering buying Belle de Jour's novel "The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl" to feed my addiction...
