Goodwood and Friends

Goodwood Revival

Over the Road


Vintage Hair Lounge

This weekend I was lucky enough to be at the Goodwood Revival a fantastic vintage car racing extravaganza near Chichester, I was working there as part of  Besame Cosmetics at Vintage Hair lounge.

Working as part of a BIG team of hairdressers for Sharon and Gloria who own Vintage Hair Lounge and taught us all vintage hairdressing. There were 10 Hairdressers and 4 makeup artists plus Gloria and Sharon, and 2 photographers Paul and Scott, and 4 models Agent Carter inspired  Raven as seen on the big pull up banner,  Hannah, Scarlett and Kiki not forgetting Bryce the "welcome aboard" receptionist for the 3 days and Kate Saturdays receptionist.

Creating fantastic vintage styles on very glamorous ladies, some of them wearing authentic vintage clothing from tweed suits to second world war nurse uniforms and others in pretty reproductions, all outfits I fell immediately in love with.

Working at an event like this is really hard, we are all passionate about our hairstyling so put our heart and soul into every client. It is probably the most tiring thing I do throughout the year, we work very long days and by the end we are all exhausted, I even had to have a sleep in a service station car park on the way home I was so tired!

 But I Absolutely LOVE IT!

Why I do it? Because I Love it!

 I wouldn't miss it for the world and I truly love the events I do with Sharon and Gloria.
We have all made new good friends and met up with old ones scattered all over the country, from Edinburgh and Glasgow, London, Isle of White and everywhere in between. We have the chance to create outstanding hairstyles on glamorous ladies using techniques that will eventually be lost as they're not taught now in college, if we don't learn them and pass them on to our staff.

We've laughed, cried, ached and giggled, danced, drank copious amounts of coffee, and had business meetings! for me especially I've had a girly holiday with good friends.

Sharon and Gloria thank you so much for having me again!

I'm hoping to get some team photos  that someone took and will add them as soon as possible.

  1. I enjoyed looking at the stles. You are right they wont be around if someone doesn't keep them alive. Look's like you had a lot of fun. our California cousin, Sandie

  2. That of course should say styles and your cuz. Would be nice to have a vintage salon in California. I have never seen one even though Californians like vintage. I was born in Hollywood and worked when I was younger in Hollywood and now live in N. Ca. You would think in between there, there could be a vintage salon.. Let me know if you know of any.

    1. Will do I'll see what I can find out for you, many thanks for your comments sandie x

It’s Official

Today was the day we met with Camhs for the follow up appointment with Elizabeth. We officially have a daughter diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder, Aspergers. 15 months after we started our journey.

I’d had a meeting with them a couple of weeks ago so I did know the diagnosis already, but I’d asked that they talk to her with me as she is completely in denial about it all, and thinks it is in my head. If I’m truly honest getting the official diagnosis hit me hard, although I’ve thought it for years being told it for absolutely sure was upsetting.  I truly hope at some point she realises that the whole process we’ve gone through is out of love for her, wanting to help other people understand her and at times our family dynamics. Why she behaves as she does in certain situations and why I react in certain situations that may seem harsh or bossy, or nit picking. Generally at these times I can see something brewing and I’m trying to get on top of her reactions or behaviour before i…

You know
My daughter.  13years old and Perfect. 
Quirky, beautiful, caring, loyal, nervous, friendly, lonely, loving, unusual, thoughtful. PERFECT. 
I've always described my daughter as quirky, or her actions as a lizzisms. 
The start of our journey. Lizzi had some unusual behaviour at infant school,  when she was about 5 years old, she rocked constantly on her chair "went off into her special place" unfortunately we didn't have a very knowledgeable teacher, she wanted to refer to camhs but made it sound as though we were in trouble, and to be honest we panicked. She said some things that shocked me and we moved her school.

Fast forward a few years to the last year of primary school where Lizzi anxieties started to manifest, particularly with bus journeys.  The first major problem was the school residential trip which she was really looking forward to. But a few days before she started getting very upset about the upcoming bus ride.  A few children had mentioned to …

Our continued journey 
After our psychiatric  appointment I was feeling quite positive things were moving forward and we were getting answers. I thought we'd get the support at school we needed but that wasn't to be the case, our psychiatrist wanted the school to refer her for cognitive psychometric testing however funding was an issue. So Dr Balal referred her himself.  
School This coincided with a particularly touch time at school, there was a number of bullying instances before half term with a few different children and I felt Lizzi was retreating into herself, she was quiet, more anxious, more highly strung and I was worried.  After half term I struggled again with getting her into school. 
We had been thinking of moving her to  Manor House School  for her GCSEs, an independent private school where their ethos is 'unlocking potential.  My husband my sister and I talked to Lizzi about the possibility of moving schools for this, she was so cross! I believe this was do…
