Winning Weekends (14 Feb) 3

Happy Friday compers and bloggers, and happy Valentine’s day too! Each Friday I post this for you to share lovely blog competitions you have found. Linky it up 😉 I don’t really have rules for this but this is for UK competitions please, and I would very much appreciate if you filled in the title (name) box like this: “25/2 win your favourite perfume – blogtitle” rather than “my friends awesomely named blog”. End dates are great because if it’s got a long date it might be worth adding to next weekends as well and it’s also good to know what the prize is before trying to win it. I will try to add a few competitions to the linky myself each week before it goes live. The linky opens each Friday, and used to close each Monday but I’m experimenting and leaving it open all week. #WinningWeekends means that […]

Hair looks for 2014 4

The lovely Sarah has a blogger challenge competition on. I love these type of competitions, where ideas and writing them can win me nice things. Well this one caught my eye as an ex-hairdresser – £125 worth of hair kit. Count me in. For this post I am going to experiment with Polyvore, which I have never used before. So pretty please ignore any rookie/noob PV errors I might make? I think that imperfect plaits and messy flowing hair with head bands will be big. Hair ideas by julie-roo I also think that slightly crazy colourings may come back. If I was more body confident I would try the rainbow stlyes, but I also adore pastels. So a pastel rainbow could be perfect for me. Online there are lots of bright and tacky multi coloured wigs, avoid avoid, avoid!  If you like this style but want to start with a […]
