Thank you all for your well-wishes after I mentioned I wasn't feeling well! I treasure each and every one of your comments - they really mean the world to me. I just want to say a special thank you to Kait. She said:
"Wow. Just wow. What wonderful pieces. That skirt and coat are so such classic shapes and they work wonderfully on you. (Then again a paper bag would probably look fabulous on you.) Beautiful hair. I am trying to grow mine out and locks like yours keep me inspired. Love that locket. Lucky you!"
Kait, that was one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me! You made me grin from ear to ear. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I also got my hair cut, which definitely helped perk up my spirits (although I still don't know what's wrong with me; I've got a doctor's appointment this Friday which I hope will help me get to the bottom of it!)
I tried a new hairdresser this time. I'm always wary of going to new places because I find that hairdressers can sometimes be scissor-happy and cut off far more than what I've asked for. Also, my hair has got a natural wave and I like to be low-maintenance (i.e. I can't heat style my hair every time I wash it!) and some styles require a lot of upkeep.
I was really happy with this hairdresser, though - she only cut an inch off (although it probably looks like a lot more because she styled it with curls) and she really listened to what I asked for.
Of course, hair always looks great when it has been blow-dried at a salon! The true test of a great haircut is to wash it yourself - which I haven't done yet - so I might be singing a different tune tomorrow!
She also said my hair was in great condition - what a compliment! I've written about long hair care before. In a nut-shell: use heated tools infrequently, don't wash your hair too often (I wash mine about 2-3 times a week), and deep-condition when you can!
I usually get my hair cut into long layers - they are easy to maintain and easy to style. I look ridiculous with bangs so I steer clear of them!
Where do you get your hair cut? Do you have a tried-and-tested style, or do you experiment?
P.S. Do you remember the Swishing Party I went to last month? Well, Russella, the unforgettable drag queen, has just released her single on iTunes. It's called Too Fabulous. Check it out if you're into electronic music!
