very vpl

shirt: misspap*
heels: asos
clutch: topshop

A really basic outfit, (do you not all read the word 'basic' with the sassy girl emoji in mind now?) with the worlds most see-through shirt. It was going to be a casual drinks outfit, but swiftly got put to the back of the wardrobe. I had to take my heels off and leg it back inside after these photos were taken as you could see my pants. Oops.
In other news, these are my new favourite shoes ever. I'm so done with little strappy stiletto heels, hello chunky friends.

checked off

trousers: girls on film*
shoes: topshop (lenka)
jacket: whistles

I'm sorry if the editing of these photos irritates you too, it's driving me absurd that they're so mismatched and ugly but this bad weather and my poor Photoshop skills don't bode well together.
Anyway, I've had these trousers for ages but been so busy that I've got a huge backlog of things to post about. What do you reckon? I love 'em.

gentle wave tutorial with ghd

the finished 'do'
ghd, so fab that my Mac kept correcting it to 'God'. Anyway, I was sent two appropriate products to create a loose wave tutorial, pretty much my standard hair-do. I've popped together a little photo by photo tutorial on how I created my messy waves, it also gave me some time to make some tacky gifs. What do you reckon?

Ok, so number one:

Firstly I prepped my hair by washing and conditioning, then towel dried and brushed through. I then applied ghd's Total Volume Foam*, and 'scrunched' as you probably did in year 8 of secondary school.

Step two:
Blow dry your hair thoroughly, and prep for using heat. I used the ghd Heat Protect Spray*

Step three:
A gif was actually the best way of explaining this, use a standard sized straightener to loosely curl your hair, be sure to hold them at an angle, not at 90 degrees as otherwise you will get a tight ringlet! Do this until you've done your whole head. I then curl my fringe the opposite way, so that it sits back a little.

Step four:
Brush out all of the curls to soften, otherwise you end up with dolly hair. I use my fancy 'You Suck' brush from Forever 21.

Step five:

 I then re-ringlet the whole lot, which makes the previous step seem pointless but it's not, promise. This just re-enforces the curl a little, so you don't just have a big puff of slightly wavy hair.

Step six:

Finally, use both hands to shake your hair up a little, it'll take out the tight curl you just made and make it look a little lived in. I really scruff it up and finish it with a bit of dry shampoo or texturing spray, as I don't like hair spray and it gives it a bit of grit.

So what do you think? I'm by no means a hairdresser, or photo retoucher judging by the million different backgrounds in these photos, soz! It's a great hairstyle for everyday, it's what I tend to do most days as it's pretty versatile. I make the curls a bit tighter if I want it to last longer, or I want to wear it on a night out.
Let me know if you try it out!

all saints a/w14

I think if I had all the money in the world, my whole life would be from All Saints. Equally, if I had a clothing line, it'd be right down All Saints' alley. They've been my favourite brand since I was about 13 and they're still killing it with their latest looks.
I've popped up a few of my favourite looks from September's lookbook, and a miniature wishlist, for if I won the lottery; of course.
What's your favourite piece?

back to school pt.5

jumper: asos*
trousers: primark
shoes: topshop (sale)
bag: zara

And so we have reached the end, rounded off nicely with this amazing jumper. I'm not one for cream, but I absolutely adore the shape of it and the way the back hangs. It goes perfectly with my new bargain Primark pants and would look fab over a pair of leather trousers.
