When Things Are Thrown Away Like They Are Daily, Time Passes And The Constants Stay, So If That Is How It Is....

James Blake's new album really has been giving me life these last few days!! I loved his first one but didn't even know he had another one out- i'm always so late with music.

Well the main purpose of this post is actually just to publish a bloody post... Time flies by so quickly, one month becomes two, two become three and next thing you know i'm writing a blog about the joys of parenthood!! I've got so much half done stuff backed up in my drafts it's ridiculous... I will publish about going to London Fashion Week S/S14 if it kills me... Or if it takes me 'til next season.

So yeah, nothing particularly inspiring here but here are a few shots of me as i'm looking now anyway.

I'm channelling Sandy from Grease...

(I still have blue face paint in my hair from dressing up as an Avatar for Halloween, only really shows up with flash. Ergh. How the heck d'you get face paint out of marley hair??!)

Yep... As soon as my hair was long enough I put my marley braids back in.
Certainly wouldn't recommend protective styling when your hair hasn't even hit three inches yet but I can't be dealing with the TWA (teeny weeny afro) lengths. 

Nuh-uh. Not me.

Thanks for all the 'where have you gone?' e-mails and comments. Much appreciated and I promise i'll see the year out posting as much as possible to make up for my Summer disappearance.

Toodles to you bitches xx

Can You Read Thoughts? Can You Read Palms? Can You Predict The Future? Can You See Storms Coming??...

My hair has been a constant source of frustration for the last few weeks; it's too long to be restrained and too short for any real styling *sigh*. Also I can't help but get angry with waiting for it to grow- I know we all go through it but it's worse than watching paint dry when you don't even have a protective style to tuck it away in.... Misery, misery.

Anyway this is a quick progress check as people keep asking me where my hair's at right now...

Hair dry and combed out 

Hair after shower, naturally drying with small application of John Frieda frizz ease...

Left side of head

Right side of head

Top of head

Back of head

So as you see my hair has grown but not half as much as people keep saying!! I think it's the sides that are really killing me- why must they grow so much slower than the top?!?!?!?

 I don't do actual length checks cos I think they can be really discouraging and distract you from the overall goal, especially in these early stages, but pulled i'd say my longest strands of hair on the top of my head are almost 3/4 of an inch (at the time of writing- Tuesday 23rd July) and my hair has been growing for nearly 7 weeks.

My Essentials for the following weeks:

From top to bottom they are: Biotin, Cod liver oil and an empty body spray bottle i'm using to spritz my hair with water before I seal it with oil.
I'm rubbish at keeping up with taking supplements but a lot of people have recommended Biotin so i'll give it a go and Cod Liver Oil is something i've been wanting to start using for a long time anyway.
I will update you on how effective I think the supplements are!

If you have any suggestions or stories to share feel free to comment or drop me a e-mail.

Toodles to you bitches xx

Oh You're Different, You're Different From The Former, Like A Fresh Battery I'm Energised By You...

Back!!!... Still as fed up with my wardrobe as ever but at least my blog is looking kinda refreshed... New layout, new header (designed by Layla) and a new blog name to boot... I'm now Zizzi's Locker (though my url will remain the same), to reflect the fact that I don't only blog about my clothes.

Today i'm sporting a top I bought in Afflecks Palace a few weeks ago. You can't really tell in the pics but it's pretty see through and perfect for the baking weather we've been having in London recently as it's probably the closest you can get to being naked without actually being naked, ha...

  • Top- Afflecks Palace (Manchester)
  • Necklace- Forever 21
  • Lion earrings- Forever 21
  • Rings- Forever 21
... I expect i'll be wearing this a lot over the next few weeks, might wear it to Lovebox next weekend actually, hmmmmm.

My hair has been growing for 5/6 weeks now and i've got all kinds of ranting to do about that in my next post...

Toodles to you bitches xx

Here I Am, a Rabbit Hearted Girl, Frozen In The Headlights, It Seems I've Made The Final Sacrifice...

Today's pictures all came out EXACTLY the same... So I had to blur some of them up a lil bit... I hope you appreciate the creativity.

I was out browsing the shops to stare longingly at things I cant afford with my friend a few weeks ago in the Brick Lane area and on our way back from Beyond Retro we went to have a look in the Gogo Philips jewellery shop. I've always wanted to go in but just assumed it would be really expensive so I never bothered... Turns out it's actually very decently priced and we both ended up with great pairs of Disney earrings... Mine have the character Gunther the rabbit from Bambi and my friend bought ones with the carriage from Cinderella (i'll try to borrow them so you can have a look)...

  • Gunther earrings- £12, Gogo Philip
  • Necklace- Forever 21
  • Lipgloss- Illamasque
I will definitely be wanting more Disney earrings, love them!!

Quick note before I go... I've added moderator approval for comments now- this way i'll  be able to get back to people a lot quicker and also stop getting so much bloody spam!

Toodles to you bitches xx
