OOTD and a New Haircut at Penthouse Hair!

Posted on January 14, 2014

Hi Guys!

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I was very excited about getting my hair cut at  in Norwich on Sunday. They kindly ed me (and a few others) offering a cut, style and blow dry – I’ve needed my hair cutting for a while as it’s such a state so I was really looking forward to see what I’d come out with! I met up with Dee from deesbeautifullife for our hair cut in the morning, then an afternoon of shopping and visiting Funky Skincare at The Forum! I’ll be blogging separately about this as there’s too much to fit in one post!

So this is me before the hair cut, this is an average day to day outfit for me – I’m wearing an aztec snood from ASOS, cardigan from ebay, vest from H&M, skirt and leggings from ASOS and  from H&M courtesy of Bloggers Edit.

I haven’t worn my hair down for at least a year and a half now because it’s been falling out due to stress. This is most obvious at the front unfortunately, so I can’t even use extensions to cover it up, as there’s not enough hair to clip them on to! It’s finally stopped falling out now but I know it’s going to take a loooong time to grow back again. So every day I just tie it up and put a headband on to try and hold down the sticky out bits! And as you know, I wear wigs for going out and special occasions 🙂

Sunday was a lovely crisp day, I met with Dee and we walked to Penthouse Hair. We were greeted by the lovely Sharon and Rachael, and after a long discussion with Sharon (who is an expert in hairloss, just what I needed!) we decided it was best to go with a simple short bob, and I was advised to be patient with my hair and let it grow. I was so fed up with my hair, I was keen on having a drastic cut and dye (possibly lilac) but Sharon advised dyeing my hair would be the worst thing to do to it, as it will weaken it and cause more breakage. So I’m going to try to look after my hair more now and on Sharon’s recommendation I’ll soon be purchasing some Nioxin products to help my hair grow.

I had a good trim and my hair was styled into a short bob with a side fringe. Sharon used Tigi products including BedHead Biggie After Party which is a smoothing cream to tame frizz and flyaways, and Superstar Queen For A Day thickening spray, as well as Schwarzkopf Guardian Angel heat protection spray.

And this is what I ended up with! What an improvement hey! This is the first time I’ve been able to wear my hair down in such a long time, it felt great!

And this is the front (sorry for the terrible face!) I’m really pleased with my new hair, it’s just long enough to tie up too which is handy! Thank you so much Penthouse Hair! You can check out Dee’s blog post here and see her awesome new hair cut!

Look out for my next post on Funky Skincare coming up shortly 🙂

Neoprene Warehouse Premium Floral Dress OOTD!

Posted on November 28, 2013

Hi Guys!

Today’s outfit is this gorgeous premium floral print  from Warehouse! The dress is made of neoprene – if you haven’t heard of this you may recognise the term ‘scuba’ dress. It’s called this as the material is the same used for a scuba diver’s wet suit!

I love scuba dresses! Neoprene a thick material which holds its structure and shape which means the fabric falls well and is very flattering. Even though this is a floral dress I think it’s great for winter as the material is thick – I’ll also be pairing this dress with thick black tights on nights out!

Ombre Jumper & Stripe Leggings OOTD

Posted on November 17, 2013

Hi Guys!

As you can probably tell, I’m trying to do more outfit posts, these are one of my favourite types of blog post so I’m making an effort to be more organised and actually get more outfits photographed! Todays’ outfit includes: necklace from The Jewel Addict, green and lilac ombre  from Romwe, black and white striped leggings from Ebay (unbranded), and my favourite patent nude platform heels bought from Miss Selfridge a few years ago.

Casual Lace Swing Dress OOTD

Posted on November 13, 2013

Hi Guys!

In today’s outfit I’m wearing this gorgeous dress from Chique Clothes! I threw on these brown boots which I literally wear every day as they’re so comfortable, with the intention of having a couple of test photos then changing them for dressier shoes, but I actually really liked them so I left them on! I think wearing flat boots with a dress like this completely changes the look and makes it really wearable for day time.

The dress is in metallic silver with a lace finish and PU (leather look) short cap sleeves. I love the sleeves and really think they give the look a bit of an edge. I’m wearing the dress with bracelets from ASOS and Primark.

Do you like this look? How else would you style this dress? I’d love to hear what you think!

Tody’s outfit is one of my favourites yet! My cardi is by  from ASOS, I’d been lusting after it for a while and finally gave in and treated myself 🙂 I’m so glad I did. The top is by Cameo Rose and the shoes are by River Island (both from ebay) And my gorgeous ring pull silver necklace is from Biggley, you can’t see it too well here so I’ll be posting about it next week 🙂
