Short Hair, Don't Currrr

After 18 months of growing my hair I decided i've had enough and wanted to go back to my short locs. Ever since I made the decision for the big chop back in 2007 no matter what I do now I always go back to short hair, you wou would think i've always had short hair.

Anyway after deciding I wanted to go back to short hair a few week's back I actually didn't think of a hairstyle I wanted apart from coming across a pic of a pixie cut I had back in 2009. In the end I ended up opening a magazine and chose the the first short pixie ish cut I liked, but kept a lot length & volume in my front section.

(My new cut, which I LOVE!)

When it came to the hair cut I actually let my best friend Marie (check out her blog) who is a hair stylist cut my hair for the first time. She has done many weaves on me before but when it comes to short hair i'm very fussy and  i've never let her cut me until now. I kind of gave her control and I was actually surprised I wasn't inspecting every move she made with the scissors lol. I can't help that I am fussy but I am in love with my cut. I guess she knows all my issues i've had with short hair and took that on board when she cut my hair ;)

As it was a great day last week Sunday we went galavanting around London in the sun whilst I strutted like a celebrity showing off my new hairstyle lol.

Summer Brights

Last week saturday I went to a friend's baby shower which ended up being very eventful because we all thought her waters broke but thankfully after getting checked out at the hospital she was given the all clear. Looks like lil princess is going to be a little diva when she does arrive :) 

It was such a hot day so I decided to go bright with the colours of my outfit and lipstick.

Dinner at Big Easy

Last week Friday I took my little sister out to eat at Big Easy in Chelsea to celebrate her passing her exams and getting into university. I have been meaning to go to Big Easy for ages to try out their crab & lobster as I am a seafood fanatic and thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it out for the first time with my sis and bestie. If your not into seafood they also have steak and ribs etc on the menu too.

My meal: Whole Lobster, Chips, Salad & a cocktail for £19.99 (bargain or what?!?)

Only I would have a cocktail & cup of tea together (that Margarita hit the spot though)

I must say I loved everything about Big Easy, the atmosphere and the food was delicious!!! We even spotted a few of the Made in Chelsea cast there lol. 

I would advise anyone to book in advance if you're planning to go as I booked the day before and only got a table for 10pm :( The restaurant was very busy and we didn't get seated to about 10.30pm but since we got there an hour and half early we had some nibbles at Busaba Eathai nearby (to curb our hunger lol) and had a few cocktails at Big Easy which we had to have outside as it was really crammed inside.

Red Wedges

Two weeks ago I went shopping on the weekend and decided to showcase my new red shoes that I managed to cop from the Office sale online. I got them for £15 in the sale which I was really chuffed about because a month prior I had tried them on in store and nearly bought them for full price (£55).
