a cosy night in

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Something you don't usually see on here... Pictures of a/one of the many takeaway/s I eat. When I got the opportunity to have a cosy night in with James I jumped at the chance, obviously.
I regularly use JUST EAT to order food as when I moved to Clapham I didn't have a clue where to order from and didn't have 'that' drawer full of menus that every house, ever seems to have so JUST EAT rescued me in my search for unnecessary unhealthy food (the best kind).
On Tuesday night we ordered from our local Indian, Clapham Tandoori, and sat on the sofas in our onsies watching Sherlock. I'm always one for a night in over a night out, and it proved a success as I couldn't move for a good two hours after..
Anyway, curry rant over, let me know if you live in Clapham and can recommend anywhere good to order from. I'm always on the lookout for a good food haunt.

p.s. I will be posting an outfit very soon, sorry for all the miscellaneous posts lately!

my christmas list

Friday, 5 December 2014

So I've not done anything festive/anything much at all for the last few weeks as I've been suffering with bad migraines as well as trying to get this terms uni project finished. I thought I'd pop a little bit of Christmas spirit up on here with a wishlist! I'm going to try and get a few outfit posts up, as well as some partywear and gift idea posts up, the usual - although I can't promise anything!
It's not a very aesthetically pleasing wishlist, but it's stuff that I'd really like that I can't warrant buying myself as I don't need, although I must admit I really struggled with compiling some kind of list, I don't know whats wrong with me - I never don't want anything! I try and treat Christmas as an excuse for luxuries I don't need, rather than asking for clothes I will likely wear twice and then put on Depop...
Anyway! What are you lusting after this Christmas?

my #dpshoeselfie

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

So, Dorothy Perkins are running a competition to win a years worth of DP shoes, all you have to do is post a photo to Twitter or Instagram showcasing your Dorothy Moment with the hashtags #dpshoeselfie and #mydorothymoment. 
I really fancied these navy boots as I don't think I've ever had navy shoes! They're a little tricky to style, but I'm on the case. What do you reckon?

knee highs

Monday, 24 November 2014

boots: asos*
bag: asos*
skirt: asos
jumper: h&m
sunglasses: zerouv*
ring: little deer*

So ASOS sent me over a couple of bits as part of their 'It Takes Two' campaign, with the idea that accessories can make an outfit; definitely true of these amazing boots! Sadly as I'm sure you can tell, they are SO big on my legs (sob), but they are insane. I definitely got a few weird looks whilst shooting these photos!
I'm in love with the bag too, after opting for smaller bags this season (more room to carry shopping) this hits the mark bang on the head. It's real leather and has a cute little pony fur front, dreamy.

my new hair and a day at hari's

Monday, 17 November 2014

I always said the day I got a complimentary hair cut/colour, was the day I'd made it. Does this mean I've made it?
Anyway, I was contacted by Gabriella at Hari's salon a week or so ago, asking if I'd be interested in having my hair done and documenting the process. Of course I jumped at the chance as my roots were no way going to let me decline. A week later I visited the Kings Road salon to have a full head of highlights and a cut and blow-dry. 
I was going to be really brave and go for the chop, leaving myself with a long Alexa-esque bob, but I chickened out in the end (more on the cut later). For the colour I wanted to keep the blonde, but brighten it up a bit and make the top a bit blonder. I wanted the Cara vibe with a messy blonde with dark roots to prevent obvious re-growth.
Raluca did my colour, and I'd wholeheartedly recommend her. She was so thorough - it took 3 and a half hours to do my highlights alone! All ok though as I was being fed fresh juice and hummus. I had three colours pulled through, one being a soft bleach. She finely highlighted the roots and then backcombed the ends and coloured odd strands to give a multi tonal finish, otherwise I'd end up stripy or one colour. 
After a somewhat painful de-tangling process of washing out, I popped upstairs to have my hair cut by Rosanne. I asked for about an inch and a half off (forgetting that a hairdressers inch is about 4 of the standard measurement!) and a long, Alexa-y fringe that I could keep parted. I also like the ends of my hair to look 'dead', for want of a better word. I like when they fall to a point, mostly caused by damage, as blunt hair really doesn't suit me. Rosanne cut my hair really quickly, and chopped in a little fringe. She then finished it off by roughly drying it and then curling it by blowdrying around a round brush - which absolutely astounded me! The whole look was finished with what I think was a texturising powder and roughed up a bit which made it a lot more 'me'.
Overall my hair took just over four hours, but I did have a full head and I went in with very long hair! I love the colour, the highlights are amazing and I feel all blonde and sassy, although if I did go back I would go a little lighter up the top, but I understand this isn't mega achievable if I don't want roots. The cut is a little harder to get used to as it feels SO short. It's kinda the length I imagined if I'd have gone for the 'short' style I wanted. It's very blunt too, but to be honest I don't think any hairdresser can/will cut hair to make it look like it's died! Although the length may take a bit of getting used to, I think I took it better as I was dabbling with the idea of going shorter. I am so pleased with the outcome, which for a girl who doesn't let anyone touch her hair for years at a time is a resounding success!
