I’d been having a bit of fun with my hair on the day I took these pictures. One thing I miss about my long hair is how I could effortlessly tousle it into a funky hippie style. My shorter hair tends to sit so smoothly and doesn’t like being messed up. I had a go at using a little bit of texturizing spray on it and it worked a treat. It beefed up the strands and made my do look all choppy and wavy. I added a couple of little plaits to the top of my hair as well.
The necklace I’m wearing was a very special gift from my friend Tom. Tom’s been living overseas for the last year and a half. After tripping all around Europe and America, he spent six months at an orphanage in Mongolia. He worked as a caretaker and teacher during his time there. Last Saturday, I caught up with Tom for breakfast and tales of his adventures. He bought me back a tonne of beautiful gifts, but none more lovely than this beaded necklace. He told me that the children were busily making these necklaces, and he thought that I might like one. All of the kids were so excited and begged Tom to choose them to make a necklace for me. Tom picked one special little girl, and she made this necklace especially for me. I am so pleased and very proud to be wearing something that was crafted so lovingly.
