Archive for the ‘what i wore’ Category

Well, what do you know!! My bloggers block seems to have disappeared!!  So pouring your soul into a post does have positive results.  I feel much more like myself again.  Another thing I wish to share with you all before I go back to clothes and stuff is that I have booked myself in at the university counselling.  I wasn’t sure whether or not I needed/wanted to but I think it’s best as I don’t want to go back to the way I was.

The way I was actually ties in with this post.  This post is really for my Mum for many reasons.  When she dropped me off in Preston we went to M&S to have a final divulge of my discount card and she said I could choose any hat I wanted. 

I debated over the bowler and she said well you’d have to feel supa-dupa to wear it and I’m wearing it today!! I’m also wearing shorts with my dress which is for my Mum as the last thing she said to me was watch the length of your skirts with your tights and stuff.  So this outfit is for you!

Showing off the brunette hair.  After wishing to be blonde still it’s actually look so much better! Which i’m pleased about so hopefully Mother will be pleased!!

Just to prove I wore shorts with my short dress.

I apologise for the mess and the girlie bits in the background, I’m still sorting out my tip of a bedroom but I’m pleased I can take photos, I wasn’t sure how I would manage it but I managed to find an affective way. 

I love this satchel, I didn’t bring it home over the summer…so sad 😦 I added a long chain Topshop locket to the look.  No bangles today because bangles and writing don’t mix well 😦

So, after laughing at all the first years for being in their carefully selected outfits which took them days to choose, I haven’t been much better with the exception that I did cobble this outfit together within 10 minutes although blogging about it and taking effort doesn’t make me much better.  Who cares, it’s what makes me feel good!! xx


Oooooo it’s been a busy bank holiday weekend.  I didn’t say yes to any extra hours so i’ve had plenty of time off.  It was my Dad’s wedding this Saturday, died my hair brown on the Sunday and Newlyn fish festival on the Monday.  So it’s not surprising it’s only today i’ve had time to get round to blogging.  


This was the wonderful breakfast that was provided by the hotel on the day of the wedding.  Of course having breakfast did not stop me from fainting at the alter during the vows…oooppss!!

A bit of a different back drop than from my usual photos and I apologise from the discarded shoe in the foreground. I was so happy with my hair but by the end of the night, it was starting to look a bit minnie mousy but I still loved it.  I crashed out on the bed without taking it out and managed to wear it to work the next day, well with a bit of damage control anyway.  

I thought I’d take a picture of the simple but pretty table setting.  On the end of the top table next to my Godfather and the edible silver chocolates on the table.  

At work on Sunday I realised I do not want to be blonde any more.  it’s not that it’s too much hard work, I don’t mind that it’s just that my hair is so damaged because of all the constant bleaching so I’ve decided to go brunette.  I’ve been blond for two years now and i’m a bit tired of it.  My flatmate (even though he isn’t any more, I will always call him that) says he will pin me down and pour absolute platinum over my head.  I’m ok with it though.  I didn’t expect it to work quite so well.  I bought golden brown.  I was told if you dye blonde hair straight to brown it will have a green tinge.  After experiencing a green tinge at the beginning of the summer after Tenereife I wanted to avoid it.  I’m very happy with it.  In the light, it has a golden/ reddish hue/tone but I like that.  Hopefully I can just let it grow now without worrying about it.  

Newlyn Fish Festival on bank holiday Monday where I live is my favourite day of the year.  I’ll spare you the picture of the fish display as some may not appreciate it.  

I went on the life boat for the first time in my life.  Or that I can remember. There are loads of stalls, one of which was selling henna.  After getting henna tattoos at festivals and deciding I cannot have a real tattoo as i’m scared of needles…i’ve become addicted to henna.  I have like 7 on me now.  

How was everyone elses bank holiday? hope you all had a restful fun time?  What did you think of my hair and the dress.  Was I right to go brunette?? xx

Well no plastic hearts but paper bag shorts!!  I’ve decided I’ve become very attatched to my waist (which is good because without it i’d be screwed!)

My new hat is going to have to surgically removed! I love it!! It hides my manic messy hair! xx

Do you like my watch? it was £3 from Cancer research. I really liked it and then one of the managers at work said “nice man watch” and now i’m not so keen on it.

Short post, lots of photos.  All my posts are short at the moment.  Really because I’m working so much and i’m so tired when i come in.  I’d like to say this is what I wore today but it’s not.  I wore an M&S uniform but I can’t complain.

This is a hat I bought from New Look a couple of days ago.  The dress is a vintage St Michael (aka M&S, how fitting!) from ebay for £1.99.  I think I might shorten the hem and sleeves.  I plan to turn the sleeves up and line them with white material.

It’s a bit of 70s meets 40s with the hat and the dress.  Why not…xx

I’m not going to lie, I put this picture in because I think I look quite skinny in it.

Hands up who went to the vintage fair on south bank. Hands up who wanted to go to the vintage fair on south bank.  That one’s me! I reallllly wanted to go but I had 15 hours to work at M&S this weekend.  Earning over £100 does help lessen the sting of not going to the event that I was born to attend.

 I will write a post about it soon.  Posts have been few and far between lately because i’ve been working lots.  I spent the first half of the summer not doing anything and now i’m flat out.

Lots of exciting things.  My house at uni is ready to move into.  Some of my stuff is there but i’ve not gone yet.  I got a text off one of my friends saying how she was weeding the garden/ back yard but I will call it a garden and I intend to buy plants for it that no doubt will shrivel and die in the bitter prestonian winter.

So to cheer myself up and forget that I still have over a  month till I can move in, I did treat myself to a new hair product and my sister was home from London for the weekend to celebrate my Mum’s birthday.

Last year on my 18th birthday I went to my hair dressers and as a finishing touch he sprinkled dust it by osis on my hair.  The effect was that I managed to back comb it into a beehive much easier.  He put the product on in the morning and I styled my hair around 7pm and it stayed put all night.

I’ve always made to buy it online and it’s currently on my amazon wish list but through time and being too mean i’ve never got round to buying it myself.

So i’ve kept an eye out in boots etc to see if I could ever find a product that would work or was simular and to my great delight, after over a year there is one on the market.  Vo5 give me texture instant oomph powder.  in its shocking pink packaging its pretty good.

it says on the packaging that the bottle has extra headroom so you can shake it up beofre use.  I initially thought this was a fancy way of explaining why they didnt fill the product to the top but actually its because when you shake it the amount in the bottle increases.

Before shake

after shake

I wouldn’t say it was as good as dust it but for a poor student it’s pretty good.

I have considerably swollen footzies from all those hours at M&S not to mention blisters but I still managed to make it out last night for my mum’s birthday.

Top:borrowed off Mum
Skirt: £10 matalan
shoes: cast offs of my sister
lips :lip venom by duwop
foundation: bourjois

My hair looks a little flat there but it did have a lot of volume last night!!  I’m really liking wear a pencil skirt at the moment.  This one was only a cheepy from Matalan so when pay day comes next week I might treat myself to a new one.

What has everyone else done this weekend? Did you go to south bank? xx
