Style: birthday weekend

I’m going to start off by saying I was having so much fun over the weekend, I pretty much forgot to take any photos.  Super helpful when you’re trying to blog about life.  Really need to get better at that.  Promise I’ll try.

Anyway. Back to the weekend.  A few weeks ago my hair dresser convinced me to make a pretty drastic change.  I was a little bit nervous but honestly so glad I trusted her.  Friday afternoon saw this exciting transformation…

Absolutely love it. 

Pretty much all my proper outfit planning went straight out the window as soon as I got home after the hairdressers.  We were on a tight timeframe after the hair dressers to get to my surprise on time.  Luckily, I think I usually find getting ready a bit easier when there isn’t the time to overthink and flap.  Seeing as I didn’t know where I was going or what I was doing, I thought I’d keep it simple and pretty safe.  

I went with black skinny jeans, black kimono top and black, slightly glittery cape jacket.  Very simple but I was ready and feeling good about life at 27. 

What an absolutely amazing night at the comedy club.  I’ve wanted to go for so long and honestly haven’t laughed so much in ages (I do need to get out more in general, but this was legit a hilarious night).

Waking up the next morning was fun.  Many, many bottles of prosecco don’t usually make waking up very easy.  Places to be and more fun to be had though so after spending far too long sat on the floor I managed to pick an outfit.  A bit like getting ready when you’re in a rush, I think getting ready slightly hungover can also make life a little bit easier because there’s the same no faffing and no overthinking.  I really do regret not getting a full length picture of this outfit because I felt absolutely amazing!  (Does a picture with a guy dressed up as a count as an outfit pose?)

Shredded jeans, black top, maroon long shirt and little heel boots.  Again so simple but with the hair and red lippy I felt maybe the coolest I’ve ever felt in my life.  

Had such a good girls day out and ended it all by my dancing my heart out and somehow only really embarrassing myself for about 10 mins when I lost control and started dancing like the wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man.  Good times. 

Great start to being 27.  I’m looking forward to attempting to style my new look some more and hopefully find more outfits that make me feel as good as I did all weekend.

Stay tuned!

Much love! 




Style: new hair

I don’t think I have ever quite appreciated how much a good hair cut can change how you feel about yourself.  I’ve never been too afraid to try new things with my hair, it always grows back, but I’ve never loved a cut quite as much as I love this one.  I made the decision to go for the big chop mainly because it was in pretty bad condition from dying the ends.

I’m not going to lie, when Chelsea starting cutting I had a massive wave of regret and thought I had made the biggest mistake of my life so far.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.


It took a few hours to get used to, but I couldn’t be happier with the results.  It’s more than just a cut, it’s given me a new level of confidence and sass.  I’m aware of how cheesy this sounds, but I’m all for anything that makes you feel good about yourself.

I’m only slightly ashamed to say, the sass that came with the cut lead me to buy a selfie light and spend a night playing around with makeup and taking photos of myself.  So vain, I know.  I have to say this did also give me a new appreciation for taking selfies.  By taking a bit of time to focus completely on myself and only looking to highlight the good bits and not focus on the bad bits, it gave my a nice little boost.  I’m definitely not converted into being a full time selfie queen, frankly I’m too lazy.  There’s nothing wrong with everything in moderation though right?

I did love experimenting with different make up and hair styles though.  Looks like my future is going to involve searching Pinterest for lots of new styles to try.

Stay tuned!

Much love
