Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
I have a story to tell about finding the right pair of boots for autumn! About a year ago, I bought a gorgeous pair of tan coloured boots from Debenhams. They fit really nicely and they look quite smart, with not too much of a heel on them. The only issue is that because they’re tan, they don’t go with anything I own. At all.
So I recently went on a mission to find the perfect pair of boots in black. This is a bit like my dungarees story, but thankfully much, much shorter!
I really enjoyed writing a chatty post for August, so I’m back with a little bit of a catch-up on all the fun (and not so fun) things I’ve been up to during September!!
Last week I was invited to check out the new Stella and Dot collection at the Pitcher and Piano Bar in Brighton. I met up with Lyndsay (again, it’s becoming a habit) outside and we headed in together.
There’s nothing worse in the summer than making an effort with your hair, only for the weather to play havoc with your locks. My hair used to go a bit Monica in the humidity, but now I find it just goes limp and lifeless, I wonder if that happens as you get older? 🙁
To stop my hair from looking boring and flat this summer, I’ve been using the John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo, Luxurious Volume conditioner and the Luxurious Volume in-shower treatment* to help my hair out.
I’ve also been experimenting a bit more with different looks, rather than just shoving it in a ponytail, so here are my top easy hairstyles 🙂
Hey lovelies, how’s it going? I’m so sorry I’ve been super quiet on social media recently. I’ve just started a new job and I get no signal in my building (unless I stand right in the corner looking like a twat!) The good news is that I absolutely love my job; it’s keeping me super busy so the days go really quickly!!
I was going to say that it feels like ages and ages since I did one of these, then I realised that’s because it is; I last did a favourites post back in April!! But I’m back this month because there have been plenty of things I’ve been using, wearing, eating, and of course, loving!!
I’m absolutely rubbish at dressing for summer; because most of my clothes are black. Or very dark. So this year I’ve been trying really hard to brighten up up my look for the summer months and it’s been making me feel super happy!! Here’s what I’ve bought (so far!)
A few months ago I was off sick for a couple of weeks with vertigo. I got really bored as I couldn’t really do a huge amount, so I thought it was about time to learn a new skill. I took to YouTube to finally learn how to Dutch Braid my hair 🙂
Now I’ve got the basic style down (you know, the cute little two braids), I thought I’d share how I do it as a few people asked me on Twitter 🙂
I recently attended a blogger event at Bluebelle & Co in Brighton and was invited by the lovely Katie. I’m so glad I was, because I’ve now found the perfect place to go if I need some gift inspiration, a present for a new baby or even some gorgeous blog props.
