Donut Bun 2 Ways | Ducks In A Row

If you’re like me, then it’s necessary to pull your hair back when you’re working. I can’t stand my hair being in my face - it distracts me and I can’t do anything until I’ve pulled it up! But then you fall into the old same ‘do day in day out. Well here’s a great tutorial on how to do a gorgeous bun that will take you from day to night. For work, try the ‘regal’ bun, then before you leave for drinks/dates/fun, take it out, tease it up and re-pin for a ‘I didn’t try too hard but still look fab’ look!


I'm a Chronic Goodie-Two-Shoes

And I tie both laces neatly in bows. My nails are not often polished, but when they are, it’s two layers and a top coat. Shoulders back, chin up, even when seated. I take black teas with honey and cream.

Did I forget to mention that my shoes are steel-toe Harley Davidson’s?

The mythical 'ducks in a row' theory...

… It’s a borderline bust…. There’s always a plan that everybody believes they should follow. Yet there are factors that can  seriously throw a spanner in the works without your say so. ‘No guts, no glory” they keep yelling at the top of their lungs … But what if those guts are yours being ripped out whilst you’re wide-eyed conscious of exactly whats going on. Then confidently, you stride along with pride firmly stamped on your shoulders, what comes out of your lips, “Yeah ‘I’ did it cause i wanted to”.

No you didn’t! Your life was actually quite mapped out right down to your sex, under the direction and maintenance of the folks. So when finally you become familiar with the word known as  “SENSE”, you suddenly have a wonderful epiphany and realize what you’re actually doing is nothing close to what you enjoy at all, let alone want to do for the rest of your life. But it feels like you’re actually stuck twiddling your thumbs in a position in which you have absolutely borderline, NO control of it at all. It finally clicks, “My ducks are really not in line and i have absolutely  no clue what ai want to do, let alone where to start over”. Although as the good shrinks say…. acceptance is way better than denial…

Yeah right, only cause dear shrink was forced into a big chair and given a title…

If you’re lucky enough maybe your parents will give you a wider birth of options in life and not restrict you to what they think would be a good idea or better yet. what they Hope for you to achieve… of course using the guilt card and silently emphasizing how proud they would be if YOU DID SOMETHING YOU DETEST. Here’s an idea, why not send the shrinks to the folks lol…

It would really be nice to know in advance that, those ducks or rather plans you have for your future won’t really happen as you’d imagine they would. It would be great to realize that there will ALWAYS be a catch to whatever happens in your life, only you have to be positive enough to realize that, you create your own destiny. Then perhaps it would be great to realize one really important detail, fairy-tales sometimes can come true, just not in the package you optimally wished for because, PERFECTION, doesn’t exist. There will always be hidden crack or an unseen flaw. Finally, life is just full of tests and funny enough that one quote, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”? That quote really did have a point….

Cause the next time around you won’t be so gullible to the idea of being thrown under the bus, ‘gang ho’ an all that jazz…
