new parting

IMG_1624

The other day, bored with the way my hair looks (growing out a slightly wonky fringe) I decided to change my parting's side. Hardly ground breaking but a couple of people at work did wonder what I'd done differently (in a complimentary way) so this is definitely the way forward. Although only half my hair agrees...

My camera decided to behave a little better this time. Possibly because I've been looking at new models online, but I do think it's time for our relationship to end soon- it's only been 3 years but in that time I've treated it quite badly, which is probably why the focus and zoom aren't playing ball.
So it's the first of March, the month of pancake day, the start of Spring and British Summer Time. Why does it have to be so grey and cold outside then? And why are buses in North London so utterly dreadful? I live nearest to work than anyone else and was late getting in today (the bosses had decided to implement a system of writing your name in a black book when more than ten minutes late. They seem to have realised how childish this is thankfully).

  13. Ooh I love the hair - it's odd how changing a parting makes people know something is different and new, even if they can never place quite what it is!

  16. CHanging up your part is always the quickest way to do something new with your hair. I always get the urge to cut my bangs when they start looking...off, but changing up the part usually does the trick--it saves me from regretfully trimming my hair at 2 AM and then waking up incredibly sorry :/

  33. You are quite creative dear, I rarely do my hair. Just a quick scrunch when it is wet and that's about it. My mother does like to braid it at times though. Lovely outfit as well!
