Since the last time I wrote, I’ve had an amazing holiday in Barcelona with my friend Karen and her daughter Cara. Barcelona is a fantastic city; I was really taken with it. We’d get up early for sightseeing then hang around the gothic quarter, tapas for lunch (the food was out of this world) and then at the pool or in the sea in the afternoon. I love a city break but Barcelona encapsulates everything.

I came back totally revived and straight back into the craziness.

Last weekend was amazing, the weather was glorious so I was able to get out and do one of my favourite things – have a picnic, using my picnic set my nephew Sam gave me.

Tuesday was spent waiting to see if we’d made it through to the shortlist for the British Hairdressing Awards and I’m delighted to announce that on Wednesday we’d made it onto the shortlist for London Hairdresser of the Year. I spent the afternoon phoning family, who thought from my excitement that I’d made it onto the Olympic squad for Rio! My one young niece told me she’d been very naughty and decided she was running away from home to come to London to live with me – she made it to the end of the road…

One thing I must say is a huge thank you to the team behind the collection – Margaret Aston, Errol Douglas, Andrew O’Toole, Leticia Dare and Nicola Hands – as well as all the team at Organic Colour Systems for their help and support.

I’ve also had some fab lunch meetings with Steven from Salon Evolution and Claire from OCS planning our next shoot this week. I’m now back in the salon planning the next four images for the awards – the winners will be announced on the 28th November,
