22/7/2014 - What's In My Bag?

Helloo lovelies!

Today I thought I'd jump upon the proverbial blogging bandwagon and do a little post which we've all read hundreds of times, but I, for one, still enjoy reading time and time again - it's the good old 'What's in my handbag?' post. I've done one of these before but in retrospect, the photographs were horrific so I thought I'd re-do it. To accomidate to the nosey bugger that lies deep within all of us...

17/7/2014 - OOTD

Helloo party people! It's been a while, eh? My new bedroom is finally complete (well, nearly..!) and most of my stuff is out of cardboard boxes so I can proceed to blog as I'm no longer living in a very small ration of work clothes and pyjama's - yey!

Jacket - Primark
Blouse - Primark
Trousers - Edition at Debenhams
Bag - H&M
Watch - New Look
Shoes - New Look

I bought this BEAUTIFUL scalloped edge white boxy jacket from Primark yesturday and I am in love - it looks so expensive. I wish it came in more colours cause I'd snap them all up! Doesn't it have such a lovely old-school Chanel vibe? I normally wouldn't buy a white jacket (a combination of Scottish weather and being clumsy) but for £15, I couldn't go home without it - I'll need to be extra careful with cider and blackcurrent  around this one!

I also had a little play around with a flat-lay with this outfit and I think I might do them more often - I really like it! Thoughts?

24/6/2014 - OOTN

We've all been there - come home from work, random week night, boring evening in front of the TV planned when out of no-where, a friend suggests a night out. For no good reason other than 'because'. I fell victim to that old trick last night...

Dress - H&M
Bag - Nine West
Boots - KG by Kurt Geiger

I picked this dress up in the H&M sale last week for £7, I love the shape and as the weather's been so nice recently I thought I'd 'get my legs oot' as we say in Scotland. All topped off with simple black accessories!

18/6/2014 - OOTD & New Hair!

Helloo pretties!

Today's I've got two blog posts for the price of one - today's OOTD and my new hair - eek!

Top - Charity Shop
Trousers - Primark
Sandals - Carvela by Kurt Geiger
Satchel - Warehouse
Sunglasses - eBay
Watch - Michael Kors

It's been SO WARM in Glasgow over the past few days - probably in other places all over the UK too but it's such a rarity in Glasgow that it always seems extra shocking! I was off work today so spent the afternoon in the park lazing around in the sun, trying to get that transparent glow of my ghostly complexion!

I, like many of us I'm sure, am terrified of clashing prints despite Vogue, Grazia etc. telling me it's cool (which I'm still skeptical of!) - but today it was just so hot that I needed loose clothes so I faced my fear and wore a pair of patterned Summer trousers which I bought for holiday last Summer with one of my favourite tops - I think it works, do you agree? Or am I just crazy!


Second thing! You maaaay notice that I've had my locks chopped off! 

Having cried for hours when I was given a bob when I was 6 (against my instructions to the hairdresser might I had!) I vowed to never have short hair again. It's been literally about 2 years since I'd last had my barnet even trimmed and at least 8 years since I changed the style in any significant way. After years of heat, dying and obsessive backcombing (well my signature beehive doesn't construct itself!), I was holding onto my long hair purely out of principle and in all honesty, had outgrown it (pardon the pun!) months ago. So last week, I finally plucked up the courage to go the hairdresser - anyone with long hair will tell you that we fear the hairdresser in the same way that most people fear the dentist!

It's a huge change but I love it, I feel like this is adult hair while my long hair made me look like an overgrown teenager half the time, not to mention it now being so much healthier, feeling thicker and it's so much easier to style and wash too!

Do you love it as much as I do?! Hope so!

7/6/2014 - OOTD

Helloo all - happy Saturday! It is absolutely pouring down here in Glasgow (what else is new?) but despite the weather, today I was off to The Mela (more info here) which is part of Glasgow's West End festival, held in a beautiful leafy green park near my house. Here's what I wore - just a casual weekend outfit!

Jeans - Primark
T-shirt - Primark
Shoes - Mel (via TKMaxx)
Bag - H&M
Scarf - Charity Shop
Necklace - Topshop
Watch - Casio (Birthday Present)

This is my first OOTD post using my new FugiFilm FinePix S8200, how much better are the photos than OOTD's using my iPhone? (here, here and here) Hopefully this means I can post OOTD's more often!

Hope you're all having a lovely Saturday and the weather is at least a little nicer where you are!
