Sparkles & Glitter

I'm a sucker for sparkles, glitter and all things shiny...

So, it was inevitable that I was going to fall in love with these bad boys.

Shoes - Ebay

Confession: I didn't find these by myself, beautiful blogger Charlotte Martin pointed me in their direction - Thank You! x

They are so ridiculously high, look out for me teetering on the streets of London or Manchester soon.

I've been ill so I haven't had time to venture out into the SALES, judging from online though, I don't feel I'm missing much. Am I?!

I've already started to look forward to SS12; florals, pastels and sorbets and metallics.  I've already purchased a few goodies from ASOS, I'll show these once they arrive.

One of the items that I am currently lusting after is a floral jacket...

SJP - Sex and the City Movie

Fashion Toast

Can't wait to see what the high-street will have to offer.

Company Hair Studio - Manchester

I have thought long and hard about whether to post about this or not, but what I went through was so bad, I wouldn't want anyone else to endure the same.

To many people, their hair is an important part of their image, it certainly is to me.  I have been blonde for two years now and decided to mix it up a little for the winter, for those of you who have been following my blog will have seen I had been inspired by Pip Edwards.  I decided to take the plunge and booked an appointment with Company Hair Studio, a professional looking salon in the student area of Manchester.

After going into the salon to book my appointment and showing the stylist my inspiration, I felt confident that my dreams were going to be achieved... I was SO wrong!

These pictures are taken by the hairdressers who saved my hair!

The next day I went into the salon and a different stylist did my hair, I showed her my inspiration and talked it through with her, specifically detailing that it needed to be textured/feathered/blended and not be straight lines.  She painted the dye on to my hair, whilst doing 3 other clients haircuts simultaneously.

After washing and drying my hair, it resembled a zebra/leopard and the stylists face said it all.  She quickly applied foils to my hair and was suddenly very nice to me, the other stylists in the salon all looked worried.  I was terrified.  Still not happy with the end result I quickly paid and left the salon.

It was no better when I got home, I was so upset!  I spoke to my sister (a hairdresser) and sent her a picture and she promised to fix it for me.

I went back to the salon to ask for a refund, it wasn't easy.  The manager looked shocked by the state of my hair and offered to rectify it, I explained that I had lost trust with the salon and then had to fight for a full refund (she was very rude).

Now, I'm not expecting to cause problems for this salon and I'm not asking for anything aggressive.  I am just wanting to warn people of the salon and what they did to my hair. The salon that fixed my hair were appalled by the work the stylist had done, completely ruining my hair and doing a really bad job.

This is the fixed result...

It's a lot darker and less blonde than I had envisaged, however it needed to be to cover up the mess it was before.


The moral of the story guys, is to stick with a hairdresser you trust to do your hair OR you will spend days in tears like I did.

New Year Plan...

I'm currently ill in bed, so haven't been able to prepare any of the posts I had planned! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and has picked up some bargains in the SALES.

Now every January we are all fed the same "New Year, New You" slogans and I always feel a bit 'bla bla bla' about it!

I'm not going to make resolutions, never have been one to do so and I know that I would break them.  However, I do intend to make a New Year Plan, things that I wish to accomplish in 2012...

  1. To graduate with a First
  2. To get a good job once graduated
  3. To look after my health/skin/hair etc 
  4. To get my tattoo
  5. To go on Holiday 
  6. To carry on building my wardrobe of clothes & accessories
I'm sure I will think of lots more things I would like to achieve, but this is a good basis to start with.

Here's to 2012...

Dream Christmas

I am finally home for Christmas and have some time to relax!  I have been neglecting my blog due to uni recently but I promise to blog lots over the holiday period.

As Christmas is only 5 days away (how did it get here so fast?) I've been thinking about the dream pieces I would love to get under my tree...

A Louis Vuitton Speedy, my first pair of Christian Louboutin's, any pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes and an Alexander Wang Rocco bag.

These are all statement pieces that I would love to add as staples in my wardrobe.  Realistically, none of these will be under my tree this year!

A girl can dream...

H&M SS12

Now, I know it's nearly Christmas, so a SS12 post is slightly out of place.  However, I could not resist sharing this.

Love the white on white! My favourite item has to been the loose fitted chunky knit with sheer back.

Double Florals

Actually obsessed with this floral two-piece, need to get to an H&M store ASAP to get this beauty...

Very Erdem, non?

Cannot find on the H&M website! Sad times.
If anyone finds it in any stores, do let me know, please!

Desperate to get my hair dyed, what do you all think to this?

I know I have posted these photos before (obsessed!) but Pip Edward's hair is my inspiration.

What do you think?
