My personal journey has been a good one I started this blog for myself thinking noone would read it here I am 200+ followers later and I am so thankful!!! Fashion has always been my main focus in this blog it’s the way that I express myself I was bullied at school for the way I dressed so to see people inspired by my fashion choices and being genuine and kind about my style is a very lovely thing! I decided this year to branch out a little incorporate myself and my life into this blog a little more and I’m glad that you guys are enjoying those types of posts too!!

Be yourself and be happy. This should be for you this should be a hobby if you find a way to make it big from this great but don’t loose the reason you started in all of that. Don’t beat yourself up if your posts don’t get lots of likes or if you said you’d post at 8every night but can’t life gets in the way sometimes and that’s a good thing you should be out there living your life ❤ we are a family and we will all still be here to read your posts even if they are “late” xx

Hair cut 💇💇

Hello lovelies,
So if you’ve followed my blog for a while you will know that my hair is my pride and joy it is my ultimate accessory and I love it!!!! So yesterday I decided not only to get it cut…. but to trust a new hairdresser!!!! Marco is my husband’s hairdresser and friend so I thought ok I’ll give it a go! Now I haven’t had any great length taken off my hair in 2 years as I started to grow it before me and Darren got married so that it was a nice length for our wedding day and from there I just kept growing it only having the dead ends tidied and cut off in subsequent hair dressing appointments so yesterday I thought as its summer I wanted a change so here’s the before and after….x

The Mother of all shopping hauls x

I am so super excited about this haul!! Ok so today me and mum went shopping and boy did we shop!! The first few shops we only found a few items in I’m not going to lie it wasn’t a good start however things picked up as the day went on and I got some blinding bargains!! So let’s dive straight in x

image

The books I got for £2 I brought The house at Riverton&A lesson in love for £1 from Cancer Research then The forgotten Garden for £1 from Sue ryder Kate Morton is a new author I’ve found whose novels travel between past and present to uncover mysteries that surround families they are so well written and gervase phinn is brilliant as a male author he really knows how to write a well rounded female protagonist. The eagle top was 99p from a discount store it is an ex primark tshirt. The beige sequins top was from scope the label said £3 but they had a weekend sale starting today where all tops were £1!!

image

Outside of town they have a big Sue Ryder store I picked up this pink floral print midi dress for £4 and this pleather jacket for £6 Dress label is F&F jacket is H&M

image

The Sue Ryder near my house is as I’ve mentioned before a £1 store everything is £1 I picked up this men’s denim shirt size L that I plan to wear as a jacket with the sleeves rolled up, the next shirt is a love or hate item! I obviously loved it I’m going through a 90’s phase and this shirt just reminded me of the 90’s maybe paired with some stonewashed denim shorts! Next I got these F&F red sandals that look like they’ve never been worn they are so comfy!! Lastly the picture doesn’t do it justice this super cute peach coloured ruffle top from warehouse. So all of that for £4

image

Bargain of the day! So the beige floral print skirt was the one I saw first and thought omg that’s so gorgeous omg its 99p I need it then when I lifted it off the rack this gorgeous brown skirt was underneath its an m&s skirt fully lined fabulous condition….49p!!! These were from extra care charity shop

image

Ive got a few weddings coming up this year I found this dress that I thought I could pair with my new red shoes which was £3 and again picture doesn’t do the colour justice this shirt is actually a dark blue with cute floral pattern and it was £1 from cancer research

image

Finally the only fast fashion store I seem to buy from…primark!! I wanted some more pyjama bottoms and found these super soft blue ones for £6 I then brought the tigers eye ring and floral ring for £1 each another Harry Potter tshirt I know but when primark stop making them I’ll stop buying them! I picked this one up for £4 and then last item is these super comfy low wedge nude heels that were in the sale for £6
So that’s it a grand total of £42.47(not featured is a hat I brought for £1 but left it in my mums car!) Not a bad haul at all!!! X
