Hair Loss – Is It a Big Deal?

Anyone who knows me will know that my hair is a big deal to me. Since secondary school, I’ve used my hair as a way to experiment with my image. I pushed the boundaries as a teenager, trying many different styles and colours. Looking back, I still don’t know how I managed to dodge suspension when I turned up to school with blue tips. We had a strict ‘normal hair only’ kinda policy, but somehow I got past that. My hair really is my pride and joy when it comes to my image. Losing it is a reoccurring nightmare of […]

What’s in my Fridge? Blogtober16

I’m back for another day of Blogtober. I’ve missed so many days now that I’m not sure you can really say I’m taking part. But, I like the prompts so II’m just joining when I can. Today the question is ‘what is in my fridge?’ I used to love watching MTV’s Cribs, and getting to have a neb inside the fridges of the stars. Well I’m afraid dear reader, you’ve caught me at a bad time. We do our shopping online, and get it delivered on a Friday morning. Today is Thursday, so the fridge isn’t stocked up with champagne […]

My Favourite TV – #Blogtober Day 8

Well in true Lauren fashion, I’ve missed two days of Blogtober without even realising. I sat watching TV last night, and something in my head was saying “you’ve got something to do”. But, I couldn’t remember what that something was. So, I guess I won’t be blogging every day this October. Anyway, there’s no point dwelling on the past. On to the present, and todays prompt: Favourite TV Programmes. I go through phases where I watch all of the tv, and then I watch nothing. Right now I’m in the first phase. I haven’t managed to finish a book in weeks because […]

My Childhood Ambitions – #Blogtober16 Day 5

When I’m not blogging, I work in retail, and have done almost exclusively since I left school. Of course I would be lying if I said that retail work was my life dream. I enjoy my job, but it wasn’t what I dreamed about when I was ten. No, when I was ten I had ambitions. I think all children do, don’t they? My daughter talks about how she’s going to be a teacher and a vet when she grows up. My son, he’s going to build his own school and be the head master of it. Ten year old me? I […]

Wacom Bamboo Spark – Technology for Paper Lovers

Anyone who knows me will know that I can be quite unorganised. It’s a trait of mine that I’m not proud of because it makes life harder than it needs to be sometimes. I’m always running late, doing everything at last minute, forgetting appointments. I have to have everything written down, otherwise I haven’t got a clue what’s going on. Particularly now that I’m a parent, and I have to remember PE kits, school projects, the family shopping list. Now, I’m a technology lover, and I would be lost without my phone. But, I’m still lover of paper. I find myself […]
