OOTD: boho vibes

Give me a sheer floaty top with embroidery any day. A bit chilly to be worn on it’s own outdoors today but perfect for working from home. Pictured here paired with black skinny jeans and my favourite ankle boots. It might even help if I could remember where everything came from… I couldn’t resist sharing ...

March fashion files: new clothes for a new job.

Yes indeed. If a new job isn’t a bloody good excuse to buy some new stuff then I don’t know what is. Especially considering I’ve always worked at jobs in retail or hospitality, and there was always a uniform. I have long wanted to have a job where I get to wear some nice stuff. ...

The hair extensions diary: 3 months in

Three months later, do I finally love them? Well I definitely don’t hate them but I’m still not sure I’d say I love them. Here’s what I can tell you: Are they worth the money? Yes, definitely. I paid for volume and volume is what I got. So much so that I hardly ever bother ...

The February fashion files: what you wear when you feel fat all month.

I guess there’s no way around the fact that I’m still feeling shit. I’m stuck in this groundhog day-like loop of weighing myself, feeling like shit, eating crap, feeling like shit, crying, feeling like shit. I know everything I need to do, but I have just fallen so far away from a positive state of mind because ...

The fashion files: January 2017.

It’s been so easy, and fun, to make more of an effort to wear all the clothes I never usually wear. Even if some days I put something nice on and do nothing more than pop up to the supermarket or tidy the house, at least they’re being worn. I don’t take a photo every ...

The Hair Extensions Diary: part 1.

After trying lash extensions {great for a week til I picked them all off while watching TV one night} and nail extensions {not so great when you can’t scratch an itch} I decided I may as well do as my hairdresser had been begging me to do for months and try hair extensions. The real-human-hair-cost-a-fortune-but-can-last-up-to-six-months ...

Cult beauty items you should already own.

I was kind late to the whole beauty and makeup game, but having a seventeen year old teenage girl, a.k.a. makeup obsessed, in the house has certainly helped. A LOT. I no longer have to pay to get decent makeup applied anymore, thanks to my daughters endless viewing of YouTube tutorials. She also has no ...

Why Spanx can go and fuck themselves.

It’s probably safe to say that the Holy Grail of women’s fashion is finding that perfect item of clothing that looks and feels amazing to wear, is comfortable and flattering on just about everyone, and garners compliments every time you step out wearing it. For me that recently came in the form of a caftan. ...

Home hair colouring 101.

{Or Home Hair Coloring 101 if you’re in The U.S.} Now I know I’m not a hairdresser but this past year I’ve put my hair through the wringer. From dark brown to light brown, with reds, balayage ends, copper and pink thrown in, I’m now just desperate to get back to a natural colour and repair ...
