The end of 2015 was a big life changer for me. I lost my house due to a relationship break-up and I moved in with my parents. My little boy turned one years old and started to walk. One relationship ended and another began. I graduated from university and went back to my job from maternity leave. I then got myself a second job. And a voluntary job writing columns. I began to travel to different places around the UK and do various things I never thought that I would do. I began a bucket list. I passed numerous dance exams and I began Brazilian jiu jitsu and joined the gym for the first time in my life. It was quite the year. I decided that I wanted to inspire people to be strong. To keep going. Then before I knew it, one year had passed.
That's when I started to take notice of myself. For the first time in my life I had my nails done by a professional. And my eyebrows saved from disaster. I realised that I couldn't carry on looking homeless. It was time to make an effort. And that's when, for the first time in my life I walked into Assisi.
A great part of 2016 was finding a hairdresser on the same level as me. Someone that wanted to give me beautiful hair. Someone who cares about colour, but also about the condition of my hair. I had found them.
I now live by the motto that the better you feel, the better you look. It's worth spending earnings on beautiful hair, because every day is worth a smile and a flick of the locks when you are proud of the way you look.
My problem is that I like change. Such as going from blue and purple, to dark blue and light blue, to blue and green. And then I look back at my pictures and miss my previous colour because they are all done so brilliantly! I have so many plans for the future, and the future looks so bright. So I hope that Assisi don't mind my crazy plans!
I don't want to be the same as everybody else. I want to have coloured hair. Because when I am too old I will never look back and wish I'd acted on my dreams.
So I want to say a big thank you to Assisi in Cleethorpes, especially Ben, for absolutely wowing me with all of your skills, for having patience with me when I keep changing colours and for going that extra mile with your customers.
I highly recommend them. ❤️
