Super Dads!

In a months time we get to celebrate Father's Day, so I thought I could point some of you in the right direction of getting your daddy a unique gift they will love.
Now everyones Daddy is different and they will like different things but here are a few ideas I have found on a cool site alot of their items can be slightly pricey but I like them.

I LOVE these tshirts! They are priced at £19.75. I know a couple of super dads that would look great in these!

This is a lovely personalised gift. You get to write upto 8 lines of why you or your child loves your or their daddy. I think its especially great if there is a special something they do for their child, and it can be as random or as simple as you like. I think my daughter would love to do one of these for her daddy at a small cost of £12!

A pair of hand sewn cross-stitch cufflinks featuring little black gentleman's moustache, £18.

Now you maybe asking what I am going to get my Daddy.. well if he hadnt of already received it then it would have been a secret. My gift was a rather unique one hence why he had to have it early, i paid for him to get a permit so he can get up close and personal with passing trains on the railways as he is a keen train photographer (& a very good one). I even got him a cool hi-vis vest to wear ;).

Happy shopping!

Well suprise suprise my pink hair lasted all of 4 days...
So instead of going straight to boring brown I thought I would give red ago...
Its taken a lot of getting used to, needless to say a few negative comments from a select few put doubts in my mind about keeping it, but I have kept it.. at least for now anyway ;)

So I used a Schwarzkopf Live color

And it looks pretty much the same as this, however Ive only washed it once since and well its faded majorly already. I had expected this as its a common known fact that reds dont last.

So before I change it to a nice boring brown I have found a few other beautys that also sport the red hair look and in my opinion, pull it off very well :)


Kat Von D

Sharon Osbourne

Holly Hagan

Like I said in my opinion I think these girls all look rather fetching with a red barnett

Yes, I now have pink hair... :)
In a potty moment I decided to bung it on over my blonde hair.
The plan was tomorrow to dye my hair red, so I thought well ive always fancied pink hair and I had the dye so if it turns out really bad I can put the red on tomorrow..
However I quite like it... whether I keep it or not is undecided as yet.
Watch this space ;)
