You would think if I had my hair cut, why is the post called the ‘longest’ haircut? Doesn’t make any sense. Also, while I spent three hours of my ‘me-time’ away from the toddler on that uncomfortable chair in the salon, I wondered, why does it take so long to get one’s hair cut shorter? Can’t the hair dresser just hold the hair at the bottom in a bunch and cut it off and give me a fringe? No, they need to shampoo your already shampooed hair, and then ask you to choose a hair style, all the while noting how dry your hair is (you can’t fool me, I know all about your product selling tactics, being a victim multiple times of shelling out insane amounts of money to buy a magic hair product, which doesn’t work). And finally, when they do start cutting your hair, they take ages cutting and putting your neck up and down and then blow drying your hair into a puff, despite your saying that this will not stay the same tomorrow once I take a shower. No no, the puff is needed, insist the hair dresser and spend another half an hour blow drying the non-existent hair and burning my ears from it. I really dislike going to salons.
On the positive side though, I read two amazing books last weekend and I highly recommend both books! I think both these books would make great women’s day gifts, or mother’s day gifts 🙂
The first one was ‘Why Mummy Drinks‘ by Gill Sims.
4/5 Stars on the sole fact that Gill Sims made me laugh so much! I was going through a rough time otherwise, and this book was the only savior which made me laugh, really laugh. I think I laughed throughout this book! It felt as if Bridget Jones was writing about motherhood. It felt as if I was reading about my own life, only written by a much funnier person 😀 And with a lot less drinking..hahah. I would absolutely recommend this book to all the amazing and frazzled moms outs there, who desperately need a laugh or a reason to drink 😉
The second book was Roar by Cecelia Ahern.
Would you believe it if I told you, this was my first Cecelia Ahern book? I have seen the movie PS I love you, but haven’t read the book. Are all her books and stories as feel good as this one was? So, this book is an anthology of 30 different stories about 30 different women. But Cecelia Ahern has very cleverly written these stories, where she converts mental and socials issues or discriminations that women face, into physical ailments or problems, that no doctor is able to solve. Until a kindred spirit makes the woman realize the actual problem that she needs to break free of, to become better. I loved all the stories and I think all of us will be able to relate to, or see ourselves in at least one of the stories, if not more. A lovely, feel good and inspiring book 🙂
So, do you feel good about getting a haircut or visiting a salon? What about these books, read any of these? 🙂
