It was supposed to be really hot and sunny today - they got the hot part right - but it's very close and muggy and even a spot or two of rain!

Just been to work today - and wanted to be comfortable in the classroom and yet not too hot at the same time and this is what I finally settled upon!

Not sure what I've got planned for the rest of the day - just relax and chill I think :)

What I wore today:

Skirt: New Look.
Green Vest: Cherokee @ Tesco.
Black Vest: Cherokee @ Tesco.
Shoes: New Look.
Earrings: Asda.

The things inside without a care.....

I've seen this done on many other people's blogs so thought I'd have a go as I'm not really making a big deal of my outfit today!

In my bag:
Playboy Notebook and pen.
Coin for trolleys.
Umbrella for the great British weather.
And usually my phone!

This is what I am wearing at the moment, Earlier I was wearing a Elle t-shirt and Jeans but I changed as I was playing around with 2morrow's outfit and as it was warm I stayed in this - it's fine for lounging around in - maybe a besides the pool/beach cover up!

I have no-makeup on and whilst that was fine in the first pic, I was pulling a hideous face in the second and so a big black blob appeared!

What I wore today:

Skirt worn as Dress: Select.
Top: H+M.
Belt worn as scarf: Thrifted.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside ...

Wore this outfit on Sunday - Myself and Mum relaxed at the Caravan whilst Gra and My Dad went to play golf, we prepared the veggies for dinner then once they had come back we went for a game of pool and hit the arcades.

After lunch we decided to walk off dinner and headed to the beach - although we did have a crafty ice-cream whilst there ha ha. Was a gorgeous sunny day - perfect end to the mini-break - I didn't want to come home!!

Kinky Hair

So I haven't posted in a few days as I have had a bad migraine - therefore no clothes posts!

But I was reading this magazine about sexy summer hair the other day .. now some of you may know I have curls which I don't really like, but apparently curls and waves are big this summer - so I read on:

Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow loves this technique to get lovely soft kinks or waves in her hair, so if it's good enough for Gwyneth LOL .. I am currently sat with my hair in four pigtails - looking like Whigfield (90's popstar)

Without the red PVC dress ;P

SO what you have to do is:

  1. Wash hair and towel dry.
  2. Add a large amount of volume mousse and scrunch.
  3. Blast with hair dryer until 90% is dry.
  4. Section into 4 and put into plaits.
  5. Go over each plait with hair straighteners on a high heat
  6. Leave to dry.....

And you should have soft waves - hmm we will see - will let you know if it turns out ala Gwynnie or more of a frizzball!

Have a nice weekend y'all!

On a steel horse I ride ....

Had an appointment with a new consultant at the M.E clinic this morning, he is arranging for me to have some physiotherapy sessions once a week for ten weeks, so hopefully that will help too!
The hospital is being refurbished at the mo and a whole new site is being built, which equals chaos in the car park - plus it cost me £2.50 for a half an hours of parking tsk!!

Am going to meet a friend of mine for coffee later which will be nice to catch up as haven't seen him for a while ... wonder if any bargains will come home with me ha ha!

Do you wanna get rocked?

The answer to that is YES I DO!!! And I am sad because my fave music festival is this weekend at Donnington - Download

And I am not there :'( Really wanted to go, but the money was just too much for us at the mo, plus were at a christening on Sunday .. ho hum, I'll catch up on the telly, and pretend I'm there by listening to the music!!

Had my reverse therapy today, went well .. also called in at mum and dads for a cuppa :D

Inspiration was meant to be vintage and new today - and I was going to wear a vintage dress, but it was so nice and sunny out I found myself drawn to this one instead, which can count as yesterdays "Flower power" and it looks vintage 1960's vibe about it? :D
