OMG I love Mollie's hair

I've been moaning on about my hair for ages driving anyone who will listen insane. I had my long hair cut to just above shoulder length last May and I really loved my shorter, thicker and healthier hair but recently, I've been longing for longer locks again. I've cut my hair extensions in as best I can but I can't wear them straight as the differennce in the lengths is still too great.

I love Mollie from The Saturdays and I've always loved her long hair which probably contributed to the 'I hate my hair' campaign of late. So, imagine my surprise when I saw some new photos of her with shoulder length hair i.e. just like mine!

This shorter style really suits her and has made me like my hair again. Mollie was obviously copying me.....haha!

Do you like Mollie's new hair style? Have you ever had the chop and regretted it afterwards?

Has Kate Middleton had surgery?

Whilst perusing the Daily Mail website today (one of my favourite haunts) I saw an article about our soon to be new Royal, Kate Middleton. I have no idea what the article was about, probably something incredibly exciting such as 'Kate ladders her tights' or 'Kate pops to little Tescos in her Louboutins' but what struck me was Kate's face. I swear she's had some work done, definitely Botox in her forehead.

Kate laughing - no sign of an expression there.

Kate smiling - still no expression in the forehead or around the eyes

Kate cheering - nope. Nothing. Nada

Don't get me wrong, I really like Kate. She seems like a very amiable person but I do worry that she's getting too caught up in feeling the need to look 'perfect' now she's in the limelight so often. I mean, I'm one to talk. I don't leave the house without at least mascara, bronzer and Touche Eclat on and I don't have the paps to contend with!

What do you think? Do you think our Royal has had a bit of help?

On another note, I'm really looking forward to the Royal wedding on 29th April and I can't wait to see her dress!

Promises, promises. I'm so rubbish, I say I'm back on the blog and then I disappear from sight. The reason is my crazy workload at present but I'm making an extra special effort to blog this week!

I was feeling grumpy and annoyed that all my hard earned dollar was being spent on boring crap like bills so I bought some fab shoes to make me feel better. I think shoes should be on the NHS. I actually think I'm in love with shoes and in particular anything from the Kurt Geiger shop. Heaven. Here are the little beauties I picked up:

Love, love, love. I wore them on Friday night and admittedly, my poor feet were a tad, ok quite a lot, tired after a few hours but come on, they look good and that's totally all that matters. I meant to take a FOTN but we were in a rush and I only had 30 minutes to get ready. I'm actually shocked I managed it and I re-did all make-up! Anyway, these hotties are called Active by Carvela and they also do them in nude. Sooo have my eye on those too!

I also decided to finally re-purchase the best facial exfoliator I've ever used which is Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant.

It's not a normal exfoliant as it comes as a dry powder which you mix with water to form a paste. You then gently massage this in, rinse and the result is baby smooth skin. I paid about £30 for 75g (from the Beauty Flash website) which will last a good 6 months.

As it's Mothering Sunday today, I decided to bake some girly cupcakes for my mum as she is a mahoosive fan of cake. And chocolate. And to be honest, most sweet treats.

I used the vanilla cupcake recipe from the Hummingbird Bakery's new book, Cake Days. This book is amazing. Every recipe works and as well as cupcakes, there are recipes for whoopie pies (yet to try), large cakes, biscuits and tray bakes. This book is literally a sugar addict's dream.

I have another busy week ahead but everyone needs a break so I intend to free my stress at lunchtime with some well overdue blogging.

I hope you're all fab,
