cut and colour c/o myla and davis

I was lucky enough to visit Myla and Davis' Brixton salon a few weeks ago for some fresh balayage and a much needed trim so thought I'd share the result with you!

I'm that person who always leaves the hairdressers in tears, so for me to tell you I'm genuinely happy with how it looks is a big deal. I had a lovely guy named José do my cut and colour, and he seemed pretty happy with the outcome too, so winwin.

I had a full head of balayage using a bleach that isn't as strong as regular bleach (?) and then an ashy toner mix put over the top. The trim was something I never willingly do, but my hair needed it! I love my hair when it looks dead, is that sickening? But I know in a few weeks it'll start to drop and die again...

Overall super happy with my hair, and definitely going to pop back in a few months and go a bit lighter all over for summer! I recommend a visit if you're local, a really chic salon with friendly guys and some fab magazines to read!

CHEAP MONDAY dungarees, URBAN OUTFITTERS jumper, ADIDAS stan smiths (all via UO*),  ASOS bag, PRIMARK pompom

Aloha! These photos were shot on my recent trip to Berlin, where me and 7 of my pals went for the weekend to celebrate me reaching the ripe old age of twenty two.  I decided to only take my Olympus PEN so if you're wondering why the images look different (I doubt any of you are) then that's why.
I've been once before and loved it, so it seemed the perfect place to take my friends and let them in on one of the best burgers they'll have eaten in their lives (city guide coming soon, fear not!).

That aside, Urban Outfitters kindly kitted me out with some new garms so I picked things I felt would make me cool enough to fit in there? Totally kidding, I just really wanted some dungarees. I've actually got another UO outfit to shoot as it decided to pour on our last day, so I'm going to save it for NYC which is this weekend! So if I don't speak to you before, have a great week!

P.S. lol at the fact I left the sticker on the shoes... I die.

PRIMARK stripe t-shirt, MISSGUIDED striped body*, H&M bra, ACNE scarf, MISSGUIDED boots*, MISSGUIDED skirt*, MISSGUIDED coat*, H&M trainers, ZARA jumper, ZARA culottes & CHLOE bag

Would you look at me being organised(ish)! I'm off to Berlin at the end of January for a little birthday jaunt with a few of my best friends and as we're cheap as chips, we haven't paid for big luggage. It's not like we need to, but I thought I'd give you a little insight to how I pack when space is a little limited, as well as what I'm taking if you cared to find out!

My top tips:
  • I always try and take versatile items such as trainers and a neutral coat as it saves on space.
  • Wear your biggest items such as heavy knitwear etc on the plane = space saving 101. Even if you're going somewhere warm, always take a jumper!
  • Remember the liquids allowance! (100ml and must fit in the plastic bag they provide.) I usually buy a shampoo/conditioner once I'm through the gates at the airport and leave it in the hotel as it means you have more room for important things like lipstick. 
  • Roll your clothes, don't fold them. You'd be surprised how much space this saves.
  • Finally, make sure you can fit your handbag in the case for when you board, and leave room for it while you pack! EasyJet and co's one bag rule means if you've got a carry on, that means no handbag/camera bag etc! I sometimes use a Whistles clutch for my essentials that I need to hand as it fits in my coat pocket, sneaky. Cameras and everything else will have to be in your main case.

how to be productive and stay motivated

Staying Motivated

Misc

Bit of a weird one for me, but I thought I'd share my 'tips' for staying productive and motivated when it comes to deadlines and the sort. I'm number one anxious ball of stress when it comes to counting down the days until a hand-in, but these few things keep me slightly sane and what with it being the New Year, I'm sure we could all do with that push to keep healthy eating, or whatever that 'new year, new me' thing is you said you'd do...

1. Set achievable goals
I used to be awful for plotting to do an entire terms work in a week and then cry when I couldn't get it all done, so instead I sit down six or so weeks before my hand in and write a day by day goal to achieve. I bank in for the fact I'll want a day or so a week of not doing any work, as well as less over the weekends etc. Because my hand-in spanned over Christmas last term I was sure to scribble out enough time to make sure I got to see all of my family and enjoy the festivities (and be hungover) without worrying I'd not done enough work.

2. Write lists
I'm a notorious list writer, and I actually find it really helps me. As above, set achievable goals and keep a to-do list to hand. I put everything on it, as it really is a motivator to tick something off. I'm even talking putting that trip to the post office and that load of washing you have to do on it. Anything that takes time out of your day should be written down so you feel you've not wasted any time. I even factor in a shower, yuh.

3. Stay tidy
No one wants to work in a messy space, so always keep your desk/bed/floor tidy as it'll really make a difference. I'm forever telling James off for dumping his stuff all over my workspace as it means I spend hours tidying my room instead of working, and then needing a break before I've even started. (#chronicfatigueprobs)

4. Reward yourself
Ok, so a Domino's after an hour of work doesn't really count but if you've been sat at your desk for six hours solid, have a cup of tea and check ya Instagram as long as you get back to it after ten minutes or so. I find I get so bored and consumed that I'm not being productive any more, I'm just sitting there worrying that if I stop I won't get anything done. Whether you need motivation to eat well, go to the gym, or even just read more, remember that you still need time not doing that thing.

5. Start with something 'fun'
This is something I've given a go recently, and applies in most cases. If I know I've got a shedload of work to do, I'll start by taking some Instagram photos, or curling my hair or whatever else I deem fun on that particular day (I don't lead a very wild life), by the time I'm finished I'm usually relaxed and happy with the job I just completed which = motivation to start the new shittier job. Ta-da!

6. If all else fails, Pinterest some quotes
Ain't nothing like a good 'this girl can' quote to get you going. Go on, I dare ya.

What do you think? Let me know if you have any good tips as I'm always looking for more!

most plants from IKEA/markets, H&M pineapple candle holder/pineapple candle/metal candlesticks/wire basket, TIGER small wire baskets in rose gold, silver and black/rose gold cactus house/silver metal tray/cotton wool bunny, IKEA candles, DIPTYQUE candle/s, M&S alphabet pillows, URBAN OUTFITTERS terrarium and OLIVER BONAS rose gold letter

I did a post with UO on some interiors a while ago, and you guys loved it. I've since moved house (and moving again soon!) so I thought I'd show you some bits I've picked up along the way, as well as a few of my favourite corners. It's nowhere near what I'd do with a property I owned, but thats the 'joy' of renting!

I've tried to list a lot of what's pictured, but if there's anything I've missed or anything you're particularly interested in; please Tweet me!
