shoes: topshop (lenka)
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.

|the finished 'do'|
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.
Blow dry your hair thoroughly, and prep for using heat. I used the ghd Heat Protect Spray*
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.
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.
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!

shoes: topshop (sale)
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.
