Long time no see! I seem to go through fits and starts with blogging where I can blog every other day for a whole month and then disappear for a whole month. Oops, sorry. March has been pretty busy in work as everyone has been using up their annual leave before the end of the financial year and I have been on a few courses & conferences too. I'm the secretary for the CILIP north-west committee and we held our member's day in March which was really good but kept me very busy. I also had to use up my annual leave myself and we spent some time doing the garden and got a bit carried away with perfecting the garden wall. It looks ace now! Now that the clocks have gone forward too I feel like I have so much more energy and time so it may well be spent blogging.
I eventually got round to spending my Topshop vouchers on the dress above, of course I am drawn to anything polka dotty. I also received the Hobbs necklace through a blog giveaway by Rachel Phipps. I had been eyeing it up in Hobbs but at £49 it was a bit expensive for costume jewellery for me. So when I saw Rachel giving one away I was so excited! I couldn't believe that I won too. It's a really weighty piece and I love bows on necklaces so it will become a classic in my collection.
I also finally had my hair cut! I hatehatehate going to the hairdressers and the last time I went was about last May. I had quite a lot off then but it had got into a state. Since moving I've been meaning to find a decent hairdresser in Liverpool and a few friends had recommended the Andrew Collinge Graduates on Bold Street so off I went a few weeks ago and had my hair cut by a lovely chap called Michael. I think part of the reason that I hate going the hairdressers is how awkward I feel amongst the perfectly groomed ladies and I always feel like they are judging me for not wearing fake tan and mascara (which I know is probably silly but still, humour me). However, I was really at ease at Andrew Collinge Graduates so I've booked in for another trim in May! I am trying to keep my hair regularly trimmed to avoid that horrible frizzy haired look when my split ends become untameable.
My resolutions for spring are to 1) blog more and 2) run more. I went for a run this afternoon and am blogging now so I have already done better than March so far! Does anyone else have any spring resolutions?
