So this is how I wear my hair sometimes. I started when I was growing my fringe out (such a bore) and it kept all the little straggly bits out of the way and didn't look like I was...growing my fringe out! I had to play around with them and start the pigtails high on my head because my hair was so short (and did separate little ones at the front for my fringe, then integrated them into the main ones). Now that my hair is getting longer, it's a lot easier and two pigtails are sufficient to gather up all my hair. There's a period when my sister and I were younger, when we were growing our fringes and there's so many photos of that time with clasps holding back wee tufts of hair or big puffy hairbands. You just look at them and go "ahh so we were getting rid of the fringes then?" So obvious! Men will never understand the pain of going through such a thing!

In order the keep things interesting, I figure my #BeRealMarch selfies need variety. So I was in the shower and thought I'd take a photo. As you do. Are shower selfies even a thing? Who knows. It looks all dreamy because of the steam!

I've been contemplating writing this post for some time, but my feelings surrounding it escalated these past few weeks, until it became something, I just had to write about. Right now! I think the blogging movement is a powerful thing in the world today and I've always loved that it's different from other forms of media. Us bloggers afterall are real people, with real lives and real opinions. Unlike television, newspapers or magazines, we don't have to be neutral or adversely, favour one party. We started our own blogs and we are our blogs, so there's nobody above us, telling us what we can or cannot write, say or do. There's freedom in it for us and it's a great approach for readers because it feels much more personable, thus the loyalty of following or commenting or figuring out this person isn't for you and moving onto the next blog.

Hi folks, how are you all? I hadn't planned such a break between posts, there's just not been enough hours in the day and I seem to only have HUGE, time-consuming posts coming up, that require a lot of editing and writing. I've definitely come out of my blog slump (for now anyway). I'm just trying to get back to blogging about my favourite things and being a bit less structured and a bit more 'me'. Haha, so with that, I bring you...Christmas presents! Not kidding. I did say, I'd end up getting through my backlog of posts 'out of season', but hey, it's my blog, I can do what I want, when I want, right? It's a nice random mix of things that I wouldn't otherwise get an opportunity to show you, but I'll warn you it is picture heavy!

We haven't had one of these posts for a while have we? Actually the last time I did Bought & Thought was the middle of January which by sheer coincidence was a review of Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil (click that if you haven't already read it). I finished that bottle, so I moved onto their Gentle Cleansing Milk (200ml, £20.70) which I'll be reviewing today. I bought the oil as a possible substitute for the discontinued Lancome Baume Eclat, but I knew this milk would be something completely different.
