I had the chop!

So I visited the very lovely Nina today from Nina's Vintage Hair Parlour, although they are no longer at Alfies Market, they are relocating, in the meantime they are in a super secret location, which was quite fun!!

Now that I take the pictures my hair IN the pictures doesn't look a whole heap shorter, but believe me it is a LOT shorter, it's not even sitting on my neck, but for some reason the pictures don't seem to make it look much shorter, I guess even when my hair is short there's a lot of it. Nina set it for me to show that it will set too, but I've got a couple of other options for mid week post swimming, I'll get a picture when I'm looking decent on day with the alternative looks!





Does it look shorter to you? Believe me it is. I just have so much blumming hair even short it looks like i have loads ha ha! Nina said if I want to go any shorter I'll need to go really short, I may do that next time, I'll have a think

In other news it is unbelievably stinking hot today in the UK. I think they said it's going to be the hottest October day on record, it is like the hottest days we get in Summer - none of which we had this year! It certainly was not the day to be stuck in hideous traffic jams in London with air conditioning in the car, I was so hot when I got home. I'm now cooling with the blinds closed and a fan on phew!

Also remember I told you how fabulous the history was in Barnard Castle? I totally forgot I'd taken these pictures of an amazing old house there, it was so fantastic, I took a picture of the plaque too, read it, it's fascinating.



I have nothing much else to report, apart from my exercise regime continues well, I'm at the gym or swimming 6 times a week, I'm actually enjoying it. I've lost some inches here and there, but no weight yet which seems weird but I'm sure it will happen, I hasten to add I've almost completely quit drinking and quit snacking, so really don't know why no weight loss yet, damn.... In the meantime I'm getting fitter & my clothes are fitter better!

Oh Fiona, it looks fantastic! Definitely looks shorter. The cut (and color) look fabulous on you. Looks so great from all angles! Yay for you!

Looks ace- Nina is a genius!

Yeah it looks fab! So they are finally out of alfies. Bit sad as I'm moving 2 mins way ( as opposed to 10). It looks fab from the back. Mine is an electrocuted version- but thinking to go back shorter. Let us know if you do?! And also post swimming too. Xxx

Oh I love it! Gosh you make me want to go red again so bad! The up keep just kills me :(

Coedith said...

Love it! If I ever go short again this is what would I want. A heat wave is a great time to get a cut.
Good for you on the exercise. Who cares about the weight if your clothes are fitting better.
Oh and castles, being way over in the States they seem even more romantic.
Wonderful post!
