Ever feel like you are constantly spending money?

Last night I decided I needed to get my tickets to see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. If you dont know who they are – google them, you shall not be disappointed. I’m a classic rock girl at heart, but I like to listen to different styles of music and these guys have got me very interested. As a side note..they are both hot! Then I started thinking I need to start holiday clothes shopping. I also need to pay for all the crazy work I’m having done to my car. (I own a 1989 MK2 golf gti, its always broke and needs a complete engine swap) On top of this, rent, food and the like. I have found since I started ‘eating clean’ I spend less money. Thats because one shop equals about three meals. Dinner then left overs make tomorrows lunch and then tomorrows dinner. So atleast I’m saving on sometimg! It makes me worry. I have the money for all these things, but I like to have some ‘safe money’ just incase something drastic happens. Nothing has yet, but you never know! So thats always at the back of my mind. After spending time saving to move out, we decided to blow it on a holiday. Obviously not a responsible move but hey – going to be living it up in tunisia next month!
Did some holiday clothes shopping today. I had been putting this off because I wanted to drop more weight before I bought stuff. My top half and waist has dropped a dress size, two in certain clothes. But my hips and arse are still massive! I couldn’t put off this shop much longer, I’ve been itching for it!! But I am so glad I went today! My confidence is through the roof right now. Its the norm for me to go into a shop and feel horrible afterwards because you can not fit into the clothes you want. But today I fit into everything I picked out! Mini celebration for me.🎉 I am no where near my goal, but I feel great. The only thing is I’m big boobed and H&M and Topshop didn’t have top half of bikinis in more than a C..no good for these bazookas! So I need to do some internet shopping for that. My nan has given me a one piece to take with me. It used to belong to my mum (she passed away a while ago) and I didn’t know if it would be creepy for me to use it? But its so pretty and fits awesomely! Its a strange feeling, I look like my mum alot and even more so in this. Anyway! Want some pictures? This is what i have purchased today..

This isn’t for holiday, but usually i wouldn’t have purchased a skirt like this.

I thought I could wear this pool side or from the hotel to the beach. *Note the lack of the top part of the bikini*

Mixture of this and that.

This is how my morning started… 6am gym wake up call, in there for 6.30am and finished by 8am. (If you can believe it, this is my favourite part of today.) Then off I pop to work for about 8.30am. We have to be in the salon 15 minutes before we start, which for me means 8.45. I like to get in a little earlier so I can have breakfast and tweak my hair/make-up/everything. My 9 o’clock client strolls in about 8.40 – thats cool yo, enjoy a coffee whilst I finish my breakie. But instead we get a “Its lucky for some” as she is told Im just finishing my breakfast. My lady is very nice and usually chilled out. Obviously she is stressed about something, and its always us hairdressers who hear the problems. I have to admit, I am nosey as hell so I love getting all the goss about everything..ever. But there does come a point in which I feel like screaming “Its not my fault!!!!!” She tells me about trying to get some funding for a charity she is working with (as I said earlier, lovely lady) but a stressed lovely lady. Once that had been spoken about she falls back into her normal self. This is one of those great things about hairdressing. Im not a therapist, I don’t feel what I say can make a difference, but at times like these we help people get stuff off their chest. Another happy client, hopefully 😉

Later on I got to what I love the most, dressing hair! A client was going to a wedding later in the day and gave me the reigns. My brief was •loose curls •over the top of the ears •styled to the side. But everything else was up to me! So this is what I came up with…

No picture from the front 😔 I always feel it makes the client uncomfortable.

I found out yesterday that me and Nicole will be getting filmed working next week. I believe it is for The Profile weekend, held by Clynol. Super excited! So I have been hitting up pintrest for clothing ideas. I love pinterest. Check out my boards, username – laurenbritton75
