Almost forgot to post this….It’s a bit late now, but Here is another part of my sister’s birthday present. They were shockingly cheap at Primark because they were having a massive clearance day to get rid of older items… luckily my sister [and, admittedly me too] don’t see date ranges for when something is “cool”. I got her these, an iron fist wallet [for her to use with the purse I got her for crimbo], and I sent her my old iPhone because she hasn’t upgraded her phone in eons! She definitely enjoyed my little package for sure.

Half priced headband from Miss Selfridge’s! They are “closing down” [aka I think they are moving into the Oracle], so I took advantage of the sale and picked up a few items — this headband being one of them. I thought the peachy colour of the bow was a nice contrast to my hair. I miss wearing hairbows!!

This is now where I store my nail polish…I got it more for the colourful heart-shaped leopard print than for the Hello Kitty face….not to say I’m disappointed. It was less than 4 quid and decently sized. Everything fits like a glove, as they say.
My niece would be envious……..Did I mention I’m almost halfway to 25 years old and she is 3?

I’m not going to lie….

I did some bargain shopping today while my husband and his brother worked on our total bathroom make-over….More to follow…

In light of my trip to Windsor yesterday and the gorgeous weather we’ve had throughout this weekend, here’s a sunglasses related post.

I know big sunglasses can be quite obnoxious but these are probably one of my favourite pairs of sunglasses I own between my husband and myself [sometimes he looks better in my sunglasses than I do…]

First pic is from last year with my longer hair in and the second picture is from yesterday in the gorgeous weather! First REAL trip with the top down of the season…hopefully many more to come very very shortly!

Last from my shopping trip…..My new TMNT jammies! I honestly don’t want to take them off my body…I want to go into town for a coffee and a quick walk in the sun, but that requires taking my pjs off and exchanging them for real people clothing. And I’m not quite sure I’m ready to do that yet.

Got a new pair of boots in the Windsor New Look shoe heaven! [My husband said “point up” — I wasn’t sure what I was looking at until after the picture was taken] 

They are pretty plain black knee-high boots with a very riding-esque look to them. Going to wear them with a pair of leggings into work tomorrow to see if I really like them or not. They were on sale and my current pair of black boots have started coming apart, so these were a justified purchase.

Went shopping in Windsor yesterday. Got this vibrant blue tee for 8 quid. It’s something I can wear comfortable to work AND looks pretty bitchin’ with my new hair colour if I do say so myself…

Also, This guy popped back up into my life….I couldn’t walk away without buying it. I said no twice, but third time is the charm and it just felt like a sign that I needed it!

Sorry for the lack of updates….I was locked out of my Tumblr account for a few days due to technical issues….but I’m back and with better hair!!

Finally had it dyed….by my husband! I’m honestly shocked how amazing it looks…And for less than half of what it would have cost to go to a Salon. Sally’s had the PERFECT color [L’Oreal Magenta Rouge] that I couldn’t be any happier with, The downside for Rik? He now knows he will have to continue doing my hair until the end of time ;)

[Pictures above are the Before, During, and After]

Felt like painting a more earthy brown tone onto my nails so when I was last in boots, I purchased a Sinful Colors Nirvana. For one of the cheapest brands of nail polish, I have yet to be let down…
Under 2 GBP here in the UK [roughly $1 in the US], it always lasts me well over a week before it chips (which says a lot because I chip my nails before even leaving a nail salon) and comes in a WIDE range of colours. Why pay more for gimmicks like “Gel Polish blahblahblah” if you don’t have to??
