The devil is in the detail.

The devil is in the detail..

I had appointment at hairdresser today for haircut. To be honest with you I don’t trust my hair to just anyone. So when I moved to the UK I asked around amongst the friends and came to the great hairdresser who runs business with his wife. They are always busy and hairdresser is about 50 miles from my home. It’s not that far, but to have one hairdresser closer to home would be very convenient as I also have small baby boy.
Every day I walk by a hairdresser, which looks small but cosy. I wanted to try the hairdresser and made an appointment. Today I walked in and saw dust and hair everywhere. It did not make a good impression on me; I wanted get out of there straight away. In this hard economy times, you would think that small businesses would do their best to attract new customers and keep the ones they have. But details such as dust and hair everywhere make very bad impression on customers. How hard can it be to dust off every morning, it will probably take only 5 minutes anyway. 

Moreover, they did not even bother to offer me a drink while I was waiting for my turn. When they did cut my hair, it was OK not super and doest look like I have been to hairdresser. This means that I will keep going to my hairdresser in the nearest village which is 50 miles away, but the great result and excellent service is totally worth it.

Share your experience with hairdressers..

Michael Kors Fever

Last week I have been shopping with my little sister (now 21! :) ), I showed her "amazing new watch that i HAVE to buy".

 My love (read obsession) with Michael Kors watch didn’t come just overnight.. I love to visit various fashion blogs/ sites and tumblr. I have noticed that there is particular watch circulating on those sites.. Its Michael Kors Golden watch, to be honest the design is not that special or particular beautiful.. but because mass of people have made a huge hype around it.. I guess I want to be part of it : ) I know it’s terrible.. And I didn’t realise it until I went shopping with my little sister. Let me tell you about her, she is beautiful, smart and has amazing figure. The thing about her is that she never follows the mass. She wears clothes that suit her best and it doesn’t matter whether its from high street or couture...  yes she is like that: )

So when she , read not infected with this hype, saw this watch she asked me why i liked it so much. As the design wasn’t  special and looked a lot like a Guess watch..  What can i say it was a reality check for me... That was when I realized that I don’t really NEED that watch, however I had already ordered one:)

So what do you think about this watch and hype around it?
