Chic Up Do

While contemplating getting my hair cut shorter earlier this week I realised I was just getting a bit bored.

After a browse on Pinterest I found this amazing new blog which features what seems like hundreds of hair tutorials.

Amazingly the blog
has  a very similar name to mine - The Small Things - and hosted by a lovely lady called Kate.

Last night my friends came round for a drink and a film (Brokeback Mountain), so I had a go at The Chic Up Do.

It's not perfect but I was pleased with the first attempt.

I wore:
Shoes - Boden
Jeans - Top Shop (Martha)
Vest - Gap
Blouse - H and M.


  1. That looks lovely, I may have to give that a go! What was the film like? I've never seen it!

  2. I need to try some new up-do's I only have one default option for summer which Im getting bored of, your's looks fab x

  3. Wow! That looks fab. Thanks for the tip - I tend to get so bored with my hair too and then go get it cut off. Will check out the videos now :)

  4. Great uo-do. One of the nice things about long hair is that you can do a variety of things with it. Love the blouse, I may have to visit H%M.


  5. That looks very pretty. Funnily enough, I'm wearing a similar-ish outfit today (me! in jeans! unheard of!)
    I watched Brokeback Mountain last night too, I hadn't seen it before and thought it was heartbreakingly good. All the more sad because of what happened to Heath Ledger too. xxxx

  6. It suits you so well and a very nice way of making you look very chic.

    X x

  7. This hairdo looks very nice on you!

  8. Ohhh this up do is nice Jane :)
    Like you say all it takes is a little creativity and pinterest does wonders !
    Sometimes i want to chop my hair off but then I know i will regret it...

  9. Coming back to this really late to say thank you - through you I've discovered that blog and I love it, and her videos on Youtube - very helpful. I have similar length hair to yours and was also feeling bored. She's even inspired me to buy some curling tongs ...

    I think your first attempt was great - looks very elegant.
