Short hair, don't care

BARDOT pants
RUBI shoes

Real talk, cutting my hair pixie short after years of putting up with split ends, and a frizzy afro was one of the best decisions i had ever made. I have had elbow length hair for practically all my life, it was becoming my little comfort zone, blanketing me during the winter seasons and it got to a point where I was more terrified of my hair dresser than I was of the dentist. Giving out a little yelp every time a pair of scissors came in sight. But just a secret between us two, I love it it to bits. It feels like a little flouncy skirt around my head bobbing up and down each time i turn my head. Not to mention how insanely healthy it has gone, you know that feeling when you can't stop touching your hair when you leave the hair dressers, thats pretty much the feels you get everyday. So if there s a daring thought thats going through your mind to get it all chopped off, then JUST DO IT!

Lots of love

Hahah so i may fracture my neck and have it sitting in this same position I have in these photos, because I realised whenever someone tells me to take a photo, my body automatically shifts to this. I am getting a little bit too excited about my optometry courses and anything eye related in general, like a little worm squealing inside me, this is what I wore to a conference for children's and women's eye care. Although the conference was for a lot more mature aged people, I just had to attend it and plus we were given a free 3 course meal so how could I really say no, right? It actually made the perfect excuse to indulge in my field

Lots of love

Rollercoaster life
