This week I saw a photo on Timehop (see above) with me rockin' some burgundy hair and I loved if you'd have told me a year ago (also see above) that i'd be switching back to where it all started as a red head, i'd have laughed - #Blondeforlyf and all that. I used a semi permanent dye from L'Oreal Castings, the shade being 'Cherry Red.' As my hair is a funky length currently, I figured a fun colour would help me feel more confident about the shorter length as it grows out.
Thursday saw a long overdue catch up with an old work chum, what was intended as a quick spot of tea turned in to five hours of conversation without coming up for air. I love catching up with friends like that.
This weekend home was calling so after a quick catch up with Elliot's family we headed to Wakefield, finding ourselves reliving history in a greasy spoon, the very establishment where I bagged my first job aged 14. I worked there right up until leaving for uni and going back in to an abundance of hello's, congratulations and how are you's from staff and customers was touching, I haven't called in for a few years and it's good to know the smell of vinegar and chip fat hasn't disappeared.
After swinging by my parents' place for a bowl of hearty chilli and to collect my holiday gear for Ibiza, our last call was to my Grandparent's. Elliot was meeting my Grandad for the first time which was quite the occasion. The rest of the weekend has been spent catching up on bits of work and relaxing, a few episodes of One Tree Hill here and there and chowing down on delicious home made burgers.
In other news, it's a year since I found myself on Brick Lane getting tattooed - twelve months later and I still fall in love with my little holly leaf every-time I wear sandals. From the seed that was planted whilst walking down the Kings Road to today, the green and red artwork, 1 years old.
