Turn back time.

I'm forever seeing things that I love or want, be it in magazines or a random leaflet or those free postcards you find here, there and everywhere. I've gotten into a habit of just photographing things in magazines that I like or that have inspired me and then uploading them on here and they get lost somewhere in my many picture folders. I took two on my way to London last week, they were out of a magazine (possibly Marie Claire?!), I just loved the style and ideas for hair I had to take document the moment.

How amazing is that gorgeous pastel pink hair! I was fascinated by this Hair Haberdashery from Kevin Murphy. So there you see, I like to take photos or collect random leaflets of things I like so I don't forget about them, but the hubby does get annoyed when there are pieces of paper everywhere!

This brings me to the point of this post. I've turned back time and gone old school, and started a scrapbook. I think everyone at some point has started a scrapbook, I used to have one that I did religiously with my Mum that was purely postcards of places we'd been when I was little. I still have that somewhere...But now I'm a big girl, I've started my own of a mixture of everything.

And here it is! As you can see I haven't got to much in it yet, but it's a start. I'm excited to see how it develops over however long it takes to fill! Does anyone else have a scrapbook?!

One last thing, I really want a penpal -  I know this is geeky, but I think it would be a fab way of getting to know someone plus a great thing to blog about, so if anyone is interested leave me a comment with your Twitter name or Facebook and I will DM you!

  2. i love the pink hair, i used to have mine that colour!
    i love the pen pal idea, its so geeky but so cute. i've always wanted one. i used to have one in school through german and it was so fun, so i'd love to do the same again!
    i did start a scrapbook too but i lost it! luckily i'd only just started it so it didn't have a great deal of meaning to me at the point.
    anyway, if you like the whole pen pal idea, it'd be great to have a quick chat first and sort it out!
    if you have a nosey on my blog, i have my email if you'd like to email me instead. i don't have facebook or twitter you see!

  5. The hair haberdashery is so cool and quaint! I made scrap books of my last few years at school, such a laugh looking back at them. Scrap books are a brilliant way of documenting memories and thoughts :) xxx
