Back To Blonde

Blonde hair

It didn't take long, did it?! As much as I was loving my darker hair and side fringe, there's something about the blonde and the bangs which just make me feel more like ME.

30 before 30

My Joolz

I've always loved writing lists, and the satisfaction of ticking things off those lists is such a good feeling! Most of the notes I write are always for day to day and short term goals, but more recently (ok, as the big 3-0 approaches next year) I've been thinking more about longer term goals, and what I'd like to achieve before my 30th birthday in 2019. Thus, the 30 before 30 list is born! I hope by recording these on the internet that I'll definitely try my damn hardest to complete as many as possible, and I think it will be really cool to do an update of how I got on with reaching my goals come next year. So, here goes...

Go with the glow

36 weeks pregnant

When someone tells you during pregnancy that you're glowing, I know you should really take that compliment gracefully and gratefully. Whenever someone said that to me, I proceeded to tell them I was 'pure roastin' (v.warm in Scottish terms) and that it was probably sweat! Especially when I was staying down in London before Christmas - carting around with a massive belly on the tube was definitely not an easy task. I do agree though that the pregnancy glow is definitely a real thing, mostly thanks to hormones and an increased blood flow to the skin making it appear brighter (oh, and plumper!) Someone on instagram accused me of having lip fillers while pregnant, lols. Maybe this time last year, but nothing since - the sweaty glow and plump features were all thanks to Baby Roo! Eventually I learned to accept these new features, and hell I even embraced it and attempted to accentuate it. I took these pictures a few days before my baby shower and had planned one last blog post, but thanks to Reubens early arrival this is me just getting round to sharing them now. Here's some extra bits and pieces I was using to totally go with the glow.
