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
