Hair Decoration!

Hey Dolls :)
I had a play about with new babyliss tongs this morning and it was the first time my hair actually held the curl. I was a little annoyed as I spent £30 on new tongs and within half an hour the curl had previously fell out. I've never ever had this problem before with other tools - my hair pretty much just stays where it's put. I'm not quite sure what made today different, but I'm glad I could finally use them...

The tong I used was the Babyliss Pro Curl 200 - they're quite thin tongs so the curl was a lot tighter than I would normally have - my conical wand still remains my number one styling tool!

Also I wore one the bows I bought from Georgie's etsy shop...

The charm in the middle reads 'I love Paris in the Springtime'. I love it so much - it's rather unusual and I've found it to be quite a talking point. If you love your hair accessories, definitely have a look at Georgie's shop on etsy, even if you don't like wearing bows in your hair it would be a brilliant way of jazzing up a plain cardigan. I bought a few other things which I'll show you soon.

I would be much obliged if you could leave any recommendations for good tongs - for any hair experts, how does Elle McPherson get her amazing waves??

Lots of Love
