Trying New Hair Styles And Mahoosive Pancakes.

So I wanted one of Zoella's videos last night which I'll pop below the end of this blog. It was another one of her video tutorials of quick and easy hair styles. I always find I lack things to do with my hair just because it is so long. The only things I do with it are to put it in a ponytail or leave it down, perhaps curling it or straightening it on occasion. Today I decided to copy one of the hairstyles she'd done in this video.

Basically, you tie your hair up into a high ponytail. The best way to do this is by throwing your head forward and then bringing it all together and popping a hair band in it. Then you simply take a strand of hair and wrap that around the hair band to disguise the hair band. Not only is this such an obvious thing to do but it also makes you look as if you've put more effort into your hair. GENIUS! Make sure you secure the hair around the band with a few bobby pins and hey presto you have a new hair style! I've actually come up with another way of enhancing this hair style but I'm going to keep in my head for a later video that I'll do!

So I was back at work today after having a few well deserved days off but I've now decided that I've had my fun for a while and I NEED to get working hard and making a living. I want to be at a point next year where I can say I've collected a nice healthy savings to hopefully go towards perhaps a little travelling the following year. I really want to go inter-railing which is something my parents did when they were young and I feel like I want to follow in their footsteps. The only way this will happen is if I literally work my butt off from now till then which I plan on doing.

After work, I'd planned to meet up with my friend Laura who lives in Essex. She went to the same university as me and appeared in most of the shows I did with Curtain Call (the society I joined whilst at university). We were going to go to this fabulous restaurant that she'd mentioned about recently on Facebook, however there was an opera night going on there which had a set menu and cost £30! (of which I do not have) So instead we went for a cheaper alternative to a little sweet and savoury pancake restaurant/cafe called My Old Dutch which is based in Holborn and OMG they were the best pancakes in the world!


Literally, look how amazing these pancakes look! So Laura went for a savoury one and I went for a sweet/savoury one. I had what was called an Amsterdammer and it was apples, smoked bacon and maple syrup. It was SO good! I think I managed to eat nearly all of it but it was deliciously filling. If you ever get a chance to go to Holborn in London then please visit this place as the food was incredible. The only thing was we were given the bill without being asked which I thought was an indication that we'd overstayed our welcome on the table... 

Anyway, I'm definitely gonna go back, I was thinking of going back at Christmas time as they have offers on there. Plus every Monday (the day that we went on obvs) they have a deal, on more or less EVERY pancake in there, that they're £5 each. RIDICULOUS! 

Looking at the picture of the pancakes now makes me want to eat it all over again...

Bye for now!
