My baby is growing up

Well this week I  realised my little girls definetly growing up.  She 11years old, nearly 12 and is a cocoon or raging hormones.

Her emotions are like a huge swing boat, going from angelic little girl to screaming 'you don't understand' banshee. Check out my previous post Junior Jekyll and Hyde here .

I realised that her hair continually needs washing at moment, that prompted me to purchasing her first
'Ladies things' *Miranda Style*' just incase she's not at home, or I'm not at home when the inevitable happens.

The other day she surprised me with her confidence in walking into town to spend her pocket money. She came home with a huge smile on her face, she'd been into New Look and bought herself 2 new bras,  she took them into the changing room, tried them on to check they were the correct size. Then bought them.  I could never has done that at 11years old, I would have been far to embarrassed.

We have decided that she now needs more responsibilit…

Junior Jekyll and Hyde

My beautiful gorgeous daughter, she's my best friend and we have some  fabulous days out with her.   She loves going out for dinner and is great company, she holds conversation beautifully, talking and chatting with anyone.  In fact her nickname is Elizababble. 
She will help with household chores, loading the dishwasher and hoovering the stairs, she is my Angel.  And then....  Hyde appears! 
She changes person every time she enters the room!  One moment she is hugging me, telling me she loves me, the next. Wham,  she's shouting and stamping her feet, storming up stairs, slamming doors, hiding!  I'm never sure who it is I'm going to get. I'm sure I was NEVER like that, though I think my parents will disagree.

My Daughter is an only child, she has 2 very close cousins that we see regularly and although they are argumentative with each other, I think they treat each other as sisters, squabbling and making up is a daily occurrence. 
I love my daughter uncondit…

Angels Trip Out.

Angels, Laughs Photos

Yesterday we were lucky enough as a team to go over to Fiona Millington Photography's Studio in Coalville. With a recent change in staff we needed new images for the website and social media pages facebook and Twitter.

Fiona was remained professional during our shoot as we have a tendency to get louder and louder when having a laugh.  And we certainly did!

What I realised as we were having this set of photos together was how well we truly get on, we have a fantastic team, we are comfortable with each other, it's now perfect'

I can't wait to see the other images,  we had individual shots and group ones, I think the outtakes will be funny too! Fiona then asked Kirsty and Aimee to model a couple of evening dresses for her to help increase her portfolio. So I'm looking forward to seeing them too.

I'll leave you with a few of the more sensible ones, for now.

Thanks for reading. X

Photoshoots and behind the scenes.

I love what I do.  Over Christmas I was lucky enough to be involved in 2 photoshoots, one with Fiona Millington Photography  and the other with Steve Bond Images .
I love the variety of working on photoshoots, helping to create the look, then observing and tweaking throughout the shoot to see the best possible results. Whether it's a portrait shoot where I am helping the client feel amazing about themselves or a product or beauty shoot, I love them all. 

The above images are part of the shoot I was involved in with Fiona Millington Photography
We aimed to create a natural carefree look and I think you'll agree the photos are beautiful. The Clients looked relaxed in front of the camera.

This was followed by a 2 day shoot with Steve Bond Images the object of this was the create hairstyles and different looks to advertise my salon Tip Top Hair Design and some of the Make up that we sell. We had 2 fabulous models Helen from Lovebirds Vintage that we have used before and Marine Zel…

Resolutions and reflections

New Years Day I've had a fabulous Christmas spent with family and friends all be it full of cold. New Years Eve came and went for me as I was not feeling particularly well, so we watched Mrs Brown d'movie and saw in the new year tucked up in bed.  
2015 has been a great year and I had some amazing times with family friends and work colleagues, from day trips out to London 

 To family holidays in France. 

Working holidays to Vintage Nostalgia and Goodwood Revival, 

Staff outing...

And family Christmas

I've have had brilliant times in the salon and difficult times with members of staff leaving. But feel we have turned a corner and the salon is going from strength to strength.
Throughout the day I have seen many posts on facebook and Twitter about resolutions for the forthcoming year,  and I've been thinking about what my resolutions will be... 
To be healthier.... Yes I will try, one of my biggest problems Is I love food. I love to cook, so I will try to cook better foo…
