Another trip to the carboot

When ever I am home I make sure I visit the carboot. I love going and rummaging through people's belongings to see what bargains I can find. I never pay the price that people off I like to haggle. It's more fun that way. I went on Sunday morning but had to be back by 10.45am as I was attending my friends wedding at 12pm so I rushed around the field and didn't really look hard at all the items for sale. I spent most of my time taking photos of the items or looking at other people's dogs.

Wedding outfits

After placing a post on my blog a few weeks ago asking everyone's opinion on what outfit I should wear to the wedding I went with numbers 2 and 4. Turns out when I was numbering the photos in the post I could not count. I soon fixed that though. 

I wore this dress for the wedding and the party

Having my hair cut

I have not had my hair cut in a year or so as I have wanted my hair long. A lot of people say the more you have it cut the faster it grows. I'm not too sure on this theory so I have never actually tested it myself. As I want long hair so I just let it grow and see what happens.

I took myself down to Splash Soho after work on Thursday and had my hair cut, washed and partially dried in 30 minutes. I didn't have many opportunities to take lots of photos because as soon as I walked in and asked for my hair trimmed I was whisked to the hair washing station. The hair dresser told me to sit back and place my head in the groove of the sink so she could wash my hair. She didn't put a towel around my shoulders like I have had with other hair dressers washing my hair. So when she was washing my hair my top got soaked as the water ran down my neck.

Benefit make over

A few weeks ago I purchased 2 Benefit items - a facial polish and Porefessional. I kept the facial polish and returned the Porefessional as it wasn't suitable. During this visit I was invited to come back for a make over on any day of my choice. I scheduled it for last Thursday but I wasn't in central London on that day so I scheduled it for yesterday instead. I just turned up and was told to sit in the seat. The girl didn't ask my name or what time my appointment was.

She did ask what products I purchased when I was there last and what I thought of them. After that she asked what kind of make up do I wear. The answer to that is errr... nothing. When I wear it I end up scratching it off and it smudging plus I don't really know how to wear it. She advised, that as I have such pale skin, I wear subtle make up. I was happy with this as I did not want to look like a clown. 

During the make over she had to stop to serve other customers, but this was cool as I got to look at the other products on the Benefit counter. During the make over -

Barry M Greenberry

Last week I posted a photo on my Instagram of my new purchase of Barry M nail paints and only today have I had chance to apply the Greenberry and see what it's like. Unfortunately it's a little streaky but the colour is bright and colourful. I have had it on all day and it looks great but it's a shame about the streaking. Is there a way to stop it streaking?


Have you used Barry M Greenberry? What did you think?

Tuesdays OOTD

Today the sun has not got his hat on and I put leggings on for the first time in a few weeks. This dress I have on is more of a top than a dress as it's quite short. I bought it from eBay and I think it may have been shrunk in the wash as it seems an extremely short dress, but then again it is Topshop. I wanted to wear something plain and simple having spent a morning trying on a million and one dresses for my friends wedding this weekend.

Which outfit should I wear to my friends wedding?

I have been invited to my friends wedding in Poland this weekend and I am not too sure what I should wear to the special occasion so I have pulled out 6 dresses I think are suitable. What do you think?  I need to have 2 dresses as there are 2 events. I am not really sure about dress 1. Dresses 2,3 and 5 are my favourites at the moment.


Dresses 1/2/3


Dresses 4/5/6

Which dresses should I take to wear at the wedding?

Mondays OOTD

Yesterday I pulled out my navy dress from ASOS. This was my first purchase from ASOS and I am very impressed. It's lovely material that flows down to my calves. I wore my gold sandals and red cardigan as the air con was on in the room I work in, but I didn't snap the cardigan sorry.

Haul from Pound World

The other day I took a trip to the shops with Poundland in my sights, but Poundland didn't have any O.P.I or Dainty Doll and had sold out of the lovely plates I saw in there at the beginning of the week. So I trundled off to Pound World and found Argan Oil. I saw that Bex had bought exactly the same thing and she said it was great. I have seen a lot of bloggers blogging about moroccan oil being great for your hair. Anything that makes your hair feel great is a winner in my book.

Bloggers Love Event

Last week I was looking through the #bbloggers chat and saw people mention a bloggers event happening in London. Que my thoughts - how do I get an invite? When is it? Where is it? Who is going? 

I found out all the details from Ellie and kindly she sent me an invitation to the event as her plus 1. Que my excitement of going to a bloggers event. Every other event held in London is either when I am working or when I am out of London.

I took the train to central London and walked to Euston to meet Ellie. I arrived early and sat on the benches outside the station listening to other people's conversations.

Poundland Wish list

Recently on Twitter, Bloglovin and Instagram a lot of bloggers have been picking up lots of exciting things from Poundland. I have saved up a few images I have borrowed from other bloggers as most of the items are not on the Poundland website. 

So lets begin. A few weeks back I picked up 2 O.P.I shatter nail polish - silver and purple. There was a green and black in the store when I bought them but I didn't want to get the dark colours as my friend had some black shatter nail polish and I didn't think it looked all that great. I purchase the silver and purple as I wanted to see what all the hype was about O.P.I and how the shatter nails worked. 

I saw this red shatter on BethanyWorrel.com I like red nail polish and have red nail polish in about 20 different shades. I am not too sure about red shatter, but I would like to try it to see what it is like and it's only £1.

Sunburn - Don't get it in the first place

Coping with Sunburn. My advise is don't get sunburn in the first place so you won't have to cope with it. Recently I spent 2 weeks in Lanzarote and I wore factor 50 everyday, covering up and staying in the shade as much as I could. When I returned home people joked that I looked whiter than I did before I went on holiday. I was pleased with myself that I did not burn or damage my skin.

Bloggers Love Event features Nicola Crawford and Angel Armogida

Having got myself a plus one invitation to the Bloggers Love Event this evening. I thought I would give coverage to the designers featured and what you can expect to see from them as designers. Que my excitement as I browsed their website and the hours tick away down to the event this evening.

Lets start with Angel Armogida. Angel Armogida is a Luxury British designer brand that is based in London and available online here. The dresses are beautifully designed evening dresses with intricate detail and flawless fabric, which are handmade. They use Swarovski crystals on their dresses and quality control every item to an inch of it's life, making sure that nothing leaves the door without being checked. 
They not only pride themselves on their dress making abilities, but also take great care and attention to how the dress is delivered in a specially designed box with the name of the dress spelt out in rhinestones. 

Each delivery is packaged and personally signed by the designer so you really get the look and feel of dealing with a luxury boutique. 

Below are some of the designs made by Angel

Poundland Haul

Yesterday I took a trip to Poundland in search of a Tangle Attack - Poundland's version of a Tangle Teaser. I can hear you asking how do I know they sell these? I saw a post on Bethany's Blog the other day and I wanted to try it to see what it was like as my hair gets really knotty when I don't put conditioner on it. But alas my Poundland did not have it in stock yet. I have a look in Wrexham when I visit my parents soon. 

Anyway, on with what I actually bought - Bottled at Source, not really sure if this is a well known brand or if this is Poundland's version of Original Source, but it smells amazing. You can really smell the honey with a hint of coco. I also picked up a pack of nail wraps. My friend at work had some nail wraps from Primark and they looked pretty, but I don't think they lasted that long. I saw an advert on TV for Myleen Class nail wraps and this lead me to purchase these nail wraps from Poundland as I wanted to test them out. I saw a post on Sue's blog Predict the day on these very nail wraps. There were other nail wraps available, but I chose this brand as it came with an emery board as well. When I finally try these wraps out I shall write a review, but for now this is my Poundland haul from yesterday

July empties

Doesn't everyone want to know what products I have used up in he month of July? Of course you do, as this is why I am writing this post. This is the first time I have written an empties post and in fact made an empties video. I didn't really understand why anyone would want to see what I had used, but having watched a few videos and read a couple of empties posts I was hooked and started my bag of empties collecting over the month of July.

Mondays OOTD

I looked out of the window and saw that it was raining and though that was the end of the British summer. So I dragged out my jeans and a top and left the house to the shops. I walked about 30 steps from my street and realised the weather wasn't as cold as I had anticipated. The rain disappeared and the sun came out. Leaving me very hot and bothered. Then to top this off I had a pair of shoes that were making nasty blisters on my feet. I was so tempted to walk bare foot.

I made it to the shops and nearly back to the station when I started to rain and I was without a brolly. Be prepared for all weather conditions. I have flip flops in my bag and wellies on my feet as I write this, but no brolly as my last one broke.

A day out in central London

Let me share with you yesterday's activities. It was an eventful day that was limited by time as the shops only open for 6 hours on a Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. The beauty of later opening times is getting up later and taking the earlier train. I remember moving to London and going to Oxford street for the first time on a Sunday. I turned up at 10am to find all the shops were shut. I walked up and down for 2 hours taking pictures and I was so pleased when 12pm came and I could finally shop.

Anyway, back on with my little adventure yesterday.

Sundays OOTD

Today I went shopping to Oxford Street today in search of a suit for my boyfriend to wear to a friends  wedding that we have been invited too. We wandered up and down and found a few suits but none were suitable and we left empty handed. 

The door I am stood in front of is where I have seen a few models have their photos taken next to it and the wall. I think they looked very Topshop in their clothes so maybe that's where you will find the photos.

Fridays OOTD

Today's OOTD was taken by my friend from work so it's not framed like I usually like it, with a brick wall behind but this one is great as you can see what I have written. Today was payday Friday so everyone from work was out. I wore my summer trousers with a patterned top. It doesn't look like too much of a flattering outfit, but I thought it did when I left the house this morning. I heard on the grapevine that it was going to rain and rain all day, but there was more sun than rain in Soho today.

Budget Bucket List

I have seen this blog post doing the rounds on the social networks and I wanted to know how to get involved, just because simply I love to be involved in everything. Come on who doesn't?  I'm not really sure how many items are meant to be on my bucket list as I've never written one before. I have thought about things I would like to do, but have never really put pen to paper. So I guess here goes. Let's begin!

1. Visit Australia and go on the Neighbours Tour - I have watched the soap Neighbours since as long as I can remember it used to be on the TV when I got in from school, then college and university. Now that I have a full time job I can't watch it as much as I'd like so I dip in and out of it when I can. But to me Australia seems a place I would love to visit. It's beautiful beaches, wonderful wildlife and amazing cities. There are 2 things preventing from doing this is one the long flight and two my career is preventing me from taking the leap and visiting Australia, I wish I had done the gap year after uni and gone travelling like a lot of my other friends have done. It would mean everything to take this trip as I love taking photographs and discovering new places. If I were to go I would like to spend a long time here no annual holidays from work will cover this. I would like to go there for 6 months or so to fully discover Australia.
