I got my locks trimmed this week.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I look like a big-nosed Jennifer Aniston and there’s nothing you can say to bring me down.

Like, I wish cameras could follow me around for just like the first 6 days after I have my hair done. I’m feeling myself something FIERCE right now. I don’t know why I don’t get trims more often. It’s like getting a spray tan. I instantly get cuter. It’s incredible.

I’m just all about the mermaid hair these days. The longer, the better. The ultimate goal is to put on a seashell bra, tie my legs together, crawl onto a rock, and sing show tunes while the wind blows my mermaid hair to and fro.

      Hahahaha I like to try vegan thangs every once in a while. Test my willpower and such. Though, you could slather some melted butter on top of these and I wouldn’t be opposed….

    Rach, you crack me up – I have more ‘surfer hair’ than mermaid – but I quite fancy the idea of a shell bra and singing on rock.
    These little beauties look very simple to make, and I have a packet of dates lurking in the back of a cupboard, so I’ll give them a go x
