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

Combining and Almost a Family Holiday

My Daughter, Niece and Dad have just had a lovely 10 days away, we towed my Dads caravan to the lovely seaside campsite of Penrhyn Bay on Angleseys North Coast.  I thought is was perfect beautiful coast location, clean facilities, swimming pool and plenty of space for the children to play. It was also seconds from a glorious sandy beach.

We had some lovely days out around Angelsey too, The children were desperate to go to Foel Farm Park on the Menai Straight somewhere they remember going to 3 years earlier and loved.

We had a fabulous day to South Stack the remote Light house on the North East side of Holyhead we've been a few times before but this time made more special by having the privilege of seeing a Rossi Dolphin and her calf. No pictures I'm afraid I was too busy watching them.

The start of the holiday was overshadowed by high winds which were a little concerning being on the seafront but we put the storm straps on (all 5 of them) and a wind break we then tucked our…

Autism, ASD, Asperger

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 …

It's been a while

Life Blimey!!! So it's been a while since I wrote on my blog, to be honest it's been a time full of highs and lows, I've kept thinking I must write but just haven't been able too. There has been lovely family meals and a great family and friends Christmas. There has been holidays,  fun days, dog days and downright tricky days. 
My beautiful daughter is quirky in the most glorious way. We've been referred to camhs for her as they're questioning high functioning autism (formally Aspergers), she certainly has some key behaviours, whether it is that or not, we need at times a little support and understanding with her. Academically she's absolutely fine, but social she's a few years behind, and sometimes that can cause issues.  We are currently 22weeks on a waiting list to see the correct department and they've said I could be another 30!  My advice is if you have any concern with your children push for help early!  
As a family we've had many issue…
