New Hair Colour And Another 2 Birthday..

Happy Thursday, it is beautiful and warm outside today. I have been out shopping with my Mum and it is nice to come home and get out of the sun for a little while. Not for long though as Mollie the Collie is already thinking it is walkies time!!

How quickly is this year going!? I can not believe we are already in July, crazy!!

A few weeks ago, I changed my hair colour and we have also had 2 children's birthdays before I have posted pictures here!!

Going back to my roots!! I have gone back to brown for a change. My hair was getting really dry keep bleaching it blonde plus my Daughter kept asking me:

"Mum don't you like my hair colour as you keep changing your brown hair to blonde!?"

So I thought it was time for a change.

Talk about her making me feel guilty!! Lol! I have dyed it blonde since I was about 13 and experiment with fashion and beauty with my best friend. We use to use a product called Sun- in where you could just spray blonde bleach into your hair and wait for it to change. I don't think they make anything like that now.

My Daughter was all freaked out at first when she saw my new hair colour brown and not blonde. It looks so different! She thought someone had swapped me!! It took a little while to get used to but I really like it now and it feels so much better condition.

I wore this outfit when went out with my eldest son for dinner as it was his 23rd Birthday, big gulp 23!! When did he get so old!? 

I still remember the day he was born, like it was yesterday. Also the moment we were getting ready to leave the hospital and the doctors said I had to stay in as my son had jaundice.  Fast forward 23 years and you still worry about them. 

I wore my flowery dress and metallic pink shoes.

Nice and flat for lots of walking. Not that we did much walking but just in case!

What I Wore: Dress: c/o Kaliko | Shoes: Primark.

A car selfie when we were all in the car waiting for the husband to take us all out.

Doughnut judge me burger what my youngest son had. A doughnut filled with bacon and burger topped with maple syrup. I think he regretted having this as it was so so sweet and sickly!!

We all picked some yummy food off the menu.

My husband's plate came out sizzling, it looked great.

My Daughters chicken with cheese sauce meal looked yummy too.

I had lasagna it was really tasty.

Only a few more days and we have another Birthday coming up, this time my husbands!



  1. I LOVE your new hair color. It really makes your eyes sparkle!! I remember Sun-In!! I can still kind of remember the smell too...sort of lemony I think. Great pics of the family too!

    1. Hehe, yes I remember the smell too :) Thanks Heather.

  2. Blimey you must have had your son young, because you don't look old enough to have a 23 year old!! I'm with you with the worrying - i'm getting worse as I get older, and what do they do - give your grand-kids to worry about!
