Stop and Smell the Roses: Week 7

Happy Wednesday, Guys!!

Today I am embarking on a new adventure, and for the first time (largely thanks to Jen) I am linking up with Mandy over at House of Rose and taking part in the Stop and Smell the Roses Vlog Link-Up! This was an opportunity to join other lovely ladies and create a vlog discussing things I'm thankful for, or products I'm loving or just something totally random that made me happy. I loved watching the other beautiful girls and I really feel like you get to know people better by actually seeing them, so I thought I'd give it a go.
Before you watch the video, you'll have to cut me some slack as this was my first attempt at vlogging (that's video blogging for those of you unfamiliar with the terminology -aka Mom, Dad and Grandma haha) and this was a one shot deal. I just couldn't be bothered with 'takes' as I HATE watching myself on video (super duper barftastic) so once I finished the first attempt I uploaded that bad boy (hence the annoying curl on the back of my head annoyingly bouncing around. Haa! Anyone have a pair of scissors?!). Oh, and in case you're wondering why the hell the writing on everything is backwards, apparently my webcam was accidentally set to 'mirror image' (Whoops! This has me written all over it. Ha!) so don't worry, you're not losing your marbles, it really is backwards. Haha! Either way, I hope you enjoy my very first 'vlog' and regardless of the mirror image, annoying curl and squeaky voice, I look forward to participating again next Wednesday! :)
If you're interested in the Bed Head: Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray you can click that link, or have a chat with your local hair dresser! I know most salons in England stock it, so I don't think it should be too hard to find back home either! :)

    1. It's so lovely to meet you also, Mandy! I've heard such lovely things about you by so many people :) I'm so glad I linked up, this has been a wonderful experience so far!

      Definitely give the Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray a go! I promise it's amazing, you won't be disappointed! Just remember that a little goes a long way, and only spray it on the roots! (otherwise you'll end up rockin the 80s fro haha)

      P.S. Thanks so much for the encouragement. I'm ready for next weeks vlog! :) xoxo
