The Mullet Kid

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that on Saturday night, whilst (quite heavily) under the influence, I decided to try and cut my own hair. We were just about to get our taxi when I quickly nudged myself towards the bathroom, scissors in hand, and began to "give myself layers" (hack severely at my hair and hope for the best). When I woke up on Sunday, my hangover immediately doubled when I looked in the mirror. I HAD GIVEN MYSELF HALF A FRINGE. Not just any half-fringe, a lopsided half-fringe. So, today my mission was to try and salvage my weird mullet-looking 'do, and cut myself in a full fringe. I thought it might end in tears, but I actually quite like it. However, I'm sure next time I'm go to the hairdressers he'll probably think, 'oh my god, that poor girl must have been assaulted by a scissor-bearing assailant with a hair fetish'.

In other, less tragic news, I just found out the other day that I'm a finalist in the Mercedes-Benz #SocialReporter competition! I've always wanted to go to LFW, so I was over the moon when I found out I was in the final three. If anyone could spare a couple of seconds to vote I really would love you longtime - you can find the voting page and my entry, 'Twosie Time', here. Help this poor little mullet haired girl get to London Fashion Week.

wow your hair looks amazing! ok this might sound really weird but earlier me and my friend were just sitting in school, meant to be doing work but procrastinating, and looking through lookbook and rating outfits out of 5. We literally came across yours and both looked at eachother and went "5!" which is saying a lot cause only about 3 people got a 5. I didn't even realise it was yours at the time because we weren't really looking at names, and you look so different with your hair and sunnies! was so surprised when I came across this post :') basically a really long story where I tell you I lurve your outfit xx promise I'm not a stalker!

Nicola said...
