Wishlist | Urban

I know I may be a tad biased being that I work at Urban Outfitters. But in my opinion thy are just getting it so right for autumn winter. And by right I mean doing loads and loads of simple yet interesting black pieces!

These are just a few of the bits I currently have my eye on. Trust me there are a whole lot more.
As soon as pay day rolls around I am positive I will be making a purchase or two.

Also I am aware I have been very absent lately, having a bit of a blogging block but hopefully will be back on track with it now. Over thinking things never helps, best to just get on with it!

Outfit | Evening Wedding

Dress: H&M (sale)
Bag: Primark
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Necklace: Argos
Watch: Calvin Klein
Rings: Accessorize and Vintage

Not my usual for this particular post. As you are probably well aware I don't dress up very often. Not to this degree anyway but a friends wedding called for a fancy dress.

I picked up the dress in the sale in H&M for only £20. Not only was it quite the bargain but it is actually long enough. I'm not super tall but at 5'9 it can sometimes be a problem with maxi dresses. I didn't wear heels just my Sam Edelman Trina sandals that I got in New York.
With the addition of a bag from Primark for a mere £6, overall my outfit was rather cheap!

I did feel a little like a version of disco barbie wearing something so shiny and with my hair straight(ish) but I am just more used seeing myself more in more casual attire. And with less makeup!

Also the pictures were taken at night so thats why the quality isn't brilliant. Slightly blurry in the close ups but you get the idea!

A Closer Look | Muse Of London

So Jason at Muse of London* definitely had his work cut out with my hair.
As you can see from the 'before' pictures my hair really was in a very sorry state. I haven't had it done for an entire year. Yep thats right it hadn't been coloured or even cut for a whole year.

I could blame so many things but the primary reason was being in New York. When I was over there my hair was the last thing on my list and then launching straight into a new internship when I was home I just completely abandoned it.
That and I am incredibly lazy with my hair. I wear it curly probably 95% of the time and it can disguise how bad a condition it really is in.

So Jason came to my rescue. I went in with an open mind I just asked him to do what he thought was best. My only request was I just wanted to keep with the blonde.
He advised me that instead of a full head of highlights, which I had previously that he would blend my natural hair colour into my the blonde to create a more beachy kind of ombre. And I love it!

He wanted to give me something that would be very low maintenance and natural. And given my track record this was probably incredibly wise!
For the cut he just tidied up the ends and I wanted to keep it as long as possible.

I loved my experience at the salon and all the staff were so friendly. I can't thank the team enough for my amazing new hair!

I have made a promise to myself to try and maintain it a little better!
