My #60secondupdate Video 6th Jan 2015

Screenshot 2015-01-06 22.41.47

I renamed this blog P.S. for a reason, I wanted blogging to be the post script to life, not take over my day, or yours.

So I thought I would do some 60 second updates this year.

Let me know if you fancy joining in, maybe #60secondupdate could become a vlog thing?

i am sure someone will tell me it already is a thing, well I never heard of it ’til it occurred to me earlier that my day has been mad and I should capture that.

Sponsor me to dance my socks off at the first Red Nose Day Danceathon!

    hello! I like this, mostly because I don’t watch vlogs often because *whispers* I find them too long, so this is PERFECT.

    Happy 2015 to you.
    My top tip, fringe wash. I do it aalll the time, well every few days when I can’t face washing the whole lot, I just wash and dry the fringe, Oh! My! makes such a difference – Sali Hughes off the Guardian tip. Sara Cox famous DJ does it as well…… although the hat is ace, as is the jumper. Great colour.

      Thanks for tip, I think fine hair and fringe is just a pain as it ALL gets greasy and loses shape so quickly, but I do like dry shampoo 🙂 Glad you like the jumper, am trying to be more colourful!

      Thanks Claire, now that is so true. I am sure it only takes so long to put people off going there.

    Penny, I love the idea of a #60secondupdate. Now this is something I may just be able to manage! Loving the bobble hat! And your top is a glorious colour. It’s brightened up my day no end. Poor G, hope you’ve had a better week. Looking forward to dancing my socks off with you for Team Honk’s Danceathon! *sings and shimmies* ‘Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof….” x
