Reporting For Duty

Bowler - Topshop
T-Shirt - New Look
Shorts - Ark (Levi's)
Tights - Henry Holland
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell
Necklace - Rock n Rose
Rings - H&M/River Island

This is what i wore for a girly day out with my mum (minus the shoes, i bought them on our girly day out!) We went to the gym, then to Meadowhall for Nandos and shopping, and then went to see The Amazing Spiderman which is actually amazing!

I have to talk about the army jacket which is exactly the same as the ones they sell in Urban Outfitters for £48. I did my research as i really didn't want to pay that much, and amazingly i discovered that if you buy them directly from the forces uniform website they are only £15! And they are bang exactly the same, so i don't understand how UO can sell them at more than double the price? I find that quite annoying!

I have been lusting over all the Jeffrey Campbell shoes for quite some time now, and eventually came to the decision that i had to own a pair! I decided on the black spiked heel Lita's as i feel these will go with anything i wear.

Also i haven't taken my black bowler hat off since i bought it, i love it so much!

Hope everyone has a nice weekend :)

Hair Update

As you may know from previous posts, i have been trying to grow my hair for years now without much success! So i came across Lee Stafford's "For hair that never grows past a certain length" conditioning treatment and decided to test it out and see if it actually does work.

Now it has been a couple of months since i started this test, but i decided to wait till i had finished using the whole tub of the treatment before i did the before and after shots. Andddd here is the results...



As you can probably see the results aren't that dramatic! I think the change in colour of my hair is more noticeable than how much it has grown. So it is safe to say i am mildly disappointed, but at the same time not extremely surprised.

However, my hair does feel thicker and i have been fighting to brush the knots out of the back of my hair for the last month due to how thick it has gotten. The one positive thing i can say about the Lee Stafford treatment is that it does make my hair feel very nourished and smell yummy! My final verdict, unfortunately, is that it doesn't do what it says on the tub, but it is a great conditioning treatment.

Has anyone get any products they recommend to help hair growth? Does anyone have the same problem as me? Any feedback and comments are really appreciated!

Last Night's Outfit

Top - Ark
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Ebay
Bag - Zara
Necklace - Rock n Rose
Earrings - Topshop
Rings - H&M
Nail Polish - W3

 Just a quick post with really bad pictures showing you my outfit i wore last night! I didn't have time to take proper photos (as usual) but i've had a bit of a shopping splurge recently and i really love my new purchases.

I never wear anything as revealing or tight on my top half like this crop top. However, i fell in love with the colour and the spikes, and i was pleasantly surprised at how well it fit as i normally struggle with tops that have fitted bras in. To balance out how revealing the top half was i bought a drop hem skirt which covered my legs more but still looked dressy.

Also i am pretty proud of my eye make-up as i struggle so much with eyeshadow and blending. I am good at eyeliner but that's about it! So last night i attempted full on smoky eyes and was quite happy with how it turned out for once!

Lastly, i have made a promise to myself to use my camera more and take better quality pictures. I am just extremely lazy and tend to rush everything! But i want to improve the quality of my posts so from now on i am going to practice my photography skills.

Happy Sunday :)
