02.08.14 Lola’s first ponytail

First ponytail, holiday greece

Sometimes the smallest things seem unimportant but actually it’s often these little moments that we remember over the big picture. I’m trying to work on being mindful in the moment and finding the easiest way to remember special little moments is to record them, instagram them, write them in the notes section on my phone.

This week we are on holiday and one of my favourite little moments of this week will definitely be Lola’s first ponytail. She has never before kept anything much in her hair but in the heat of the day, she came to me and asked with her pigeon speech,

‘Me ponytail?’

I think I love her little ponytail very much.


12.05.14 Chloe’s Beauty Bar in Essex.

Sally Kettle DJ @ Chloes Beauty Bar

I was recently invited to the launch of Chloe’s Beauty Bar in Essex. Love TOWIE or hate it,  design lovers of white would have appreciated the cool clean look of this space.
This LA inspired beauty bar is definitely a place of beauty in itself.  The cool white surroundings are both hip yet calming relaxing and i couldn’t fail to be seduced by the injections of glitter gold used in the lighting scheme and main bar to the back.

06.08.13 My Holiday Stuff: Phoebe age 8

I asked the kids this week. What couldn’t you live without on holiday? Here’s what they picked. I love to see the difference in the kids, between what’s most important to them right now.

I’ll post one every day this week.

Phoebe, age 8, favourite, build-a-bear, bikini, kindle, hairbands

Hearts my pink cat. She’s was my 8th Birthday present when I went to see Matilda in London. She’s a Build a Bear cat and I like to sleep with her at night.

My Kindle Fire. I like to listen to music on this and play games but mostly I love the music.

My new bikini. I have been swimming almost every day.

Hairbands. My mum puts plaits in my hair and gives me new hairstyles on holiday which i really like.

Thanks to my friend and amazeballs hairdresser Zoe at Silhouette du Barry. She came up with a few looks for you to choose. The plan is perhaps for the salon prep the hair the night before and now that she has shown me how to style all 3, I should be able to do the rest myself in the morning. Eek! So help me out and cast a vote.

07.12.12 Because their worth it: Your kids hair questions answered.

We loved making this hair series for you…now here’s your questions answered by our expert stylist Siobhan. Go forth and be hairtastic with your kids this weekend!

Question: I have been told to make a bun for my daughters dance exam and they suggested using a doughnut ring. Help?!

Question: what do i do about nits? They seem to never completely go away.

First things first, if your child has never had nits be prepared. Read this and buy yourself everything you need before you discover them. Then there’s no risk of a late night dash to the pharmacy in an emergency the day before Christmas/your brothers wedding etc…(fill in your own important occasion you really don’t want to discover them un prepared!)

23.11.12 because they’re worth it: Kids hair guide for long hair

Long hair can be fun and beautiful if kept in good condition. It can also be kind of boring when they wear the same old ponytail everyday. Here’s a few ideas to zhush up your hair repertoire!

option one: Straight – curl  or curl to straight.

If they’ve got straight hair, they’ll like curls for a change and if they have curly hair no doubt at some point they’ll love you to straighten it. As long as it’s not done too often it’s a fun change that doesn’t require much skill. Think about adding a heat spray to protect their hair first if using heated curlers or straighteners.

Option three: the fish plait

03.11.12 Because they’re worth it: Styling Curly hair for kids

It’s no secret that most people with curly hair often wish they had straight hair because it would be so much easier sometimes! I say, embrace the crazy curliness and give your child a head to be proud of.

You can do just as many styles with a bit of extra patience and and a bit of practise. Thanks to our stunning model Isabelle, who could not have been more patient. xx
