Well hello there! Yes it has been a while, hasn’t it? Well I’m back and as the title suggests with a new blog (well redesigned) and new hair (well trimmed)! First up the blog. I have wanted to redesign my blog for a while, although I loved the flowery prints and pink, it just wasn’t really ‘me’ anymore so after mocking up some rather awful visions on Paint, one of my best mates Nick, who is seriously a computer genius, created this for me! I felt quite sad to be giving up on my blogger baby, but this is the sleeker, more sophiscated version of ‘Vivianna Does Makeup’ and I hope you all like it. Rome wasn’t built in a day and there are still a few tweaks I’d like to make here and there (I think I am seriously testing poor Nick’s patience), but hopefully soon everything will fall (exactly) into place.

Next up my hair. It is probably one of the most talked about topics in comments and emails that I receive and everyone was always so complimentary of my long locks, but unfortunately as with everything there comes a time and I felt ready for it to be lopped off. It wasn’t like it was in poor condition or anything, in all honestly I hadn’t had a haircut for a very long time and it needed some neatening up around the edges. My hairdresser Aunty who has been cutting my hair since I was about 3 months old did it for me; long layers with some shorter bits round the front, and I am very happy with the result. It sounds quite strange but I actually feel ‘lighter’! I have been swishing my hair around like I’m in some hair advert since I got it cut!

A few more final formalities till I resume my usual beauty ramblings! I entered the Zuneta Vlogger Search and it’s now down to the final voting stages, there are some other amazing Youtubers there as well including my current fav Megan Isobel, so if you fancy voting you can do so here. Also I’m aware that the blog isn’t looking too fruity layout-wise on handheld devices, so it is best to view from laptops for the minute although hopefully that will change soon. I think that’s it for now, hope you like it! Normal service will resume tomorrow :)

    I love your hair – it looks so bouncy. Mine is a nightmare to style – frizzy, and wavy in a way you couldn’t leave it naturally. I will keep trying to emulate yours!

    Love the new blog layout. And I voted for you – definitely my favourite youtuber!
