How freakin AWESOME does my "do" look? I sat in the hairdressers chair at The Apartment and said "do what you like" - these 2 guys blew me away - wish I could have big hair every day!!

Thanx to @rufusgeary and @sothisispeter and Wella for my perfect LFW day 02 hair!!

Love this H&M trend dress too - I lucked out and found it hanging all alone just waiting for me to come and find it! "You shall go to LFW and you will have a ball my darling dress" 

Im off to purchase a skinny conical wand and give this hair do a go at home!

Happy Thursday Friends!

P.S. Thanx to Debs from Bang On Style for the fab photos

I Am Wearing : 

Lace Up Sweater - Primark
Faux Suede Skirt - BooHoo
Chloe Dupe Bag - Forever 21
Watch - Michael Kors 
Adidas Stan Smiths - c/o Mainline Menswear 
Jewellery - Primark

When I found this Isabel Marant look-a-like lace up eyelet jumper at the back of my local Primark in July, I knew it would take ALL of my will power not to pop it on and sweat it out over the summer months!!

TBH it's even a little warm to be wearing it now but I just LOVE it so!! It also comes in a marl grey colour if you are interested! Although you will have to be quick because it is bound to be flying off the shelves!!

As most of you will already be aware LFW was based at the Brewer Street Car Park (yes I said car park) in Soho this year. So I'm sorry if my photos are not as picturesque as they usually are when we were shooting at Somerset House, but LFW just got REAL! 

About an hour after we took these shots I saw a grown man peeing up against the wall (in broad daylight) right next to this spot!!!! #LFWgotREAL insert Popping eyes emoji here!

More of my LFW looks coming soon along with some LFW street style snaps I took.

Have a great weekend my lovelies

"September is the biggest month for fashion"

When Braun got in contact with me and asked if I'd like to try out their Silk-Epil 5 Wet & Dry epilator and take part in the beautiful Jessica Alba's "30 Days of Switch Up Your Style" challenge I jumped at the chance. - If their is anyone on earth who's legs I would kill to have it's got to be Albas! 

 I have a couple of friends who can't live without their epilators but I must confess that I have never tried one before! So it's now time for me to see for myself what all fuss is about!!

So here are the features of the Silk-Épil 5 Wet & Dry :

  • Extra soft epilation 
Designed for use in water which is proven to relax skin and reduce discomfort – perfect for those new to epilating. The massage roller attachment* can be used to stimulate skin for an extra soft epilation experience, and with regular use epilation becomes virtually painless 

  • Efficient results 
Precisely removes hair as small as a grain of sand (0.5mm), effectively eliminating the need to wait for full regrowth before the next epilation session 

  • Easy and effective 
Designed with a new anti-slip grip pad making it easy to handle in water and a unique skin contact cap to help reach all contours of the body

If like me this is your first time using and epilator then Braun (and I ) recommend that you use it wet and in the evening as it will leave your legs a little red! 
Using it in the shower or bath will allow your pores to open up and and it will make the whole process less painful - yes I said LESS painful - as it is still painful! Not so painful that I wont do it agin, but its not a day at the spa!! Fear not though ladies as the instruction leaflet assures me that the more you use it the more you will get used to it!  

As for the silky smooth finish lasting for up to 4 weeks - I can not comment as I have only just used it a couple of days ago. However I am assured by my friends that 4 weeks of smooth legs is what I can expect. So I look forward to 4 weeks (30 days) of unlimited style choices thanks to my new epilator, I can free my mind of those "oh but I haven't shaved my legs so I can't wear that skirt" thoughts and concentrate on switching up my style!!

One epilation closer to having legs like Jessica Alba - we use the same Braun epilator so that basically makes us friends right!? ;-)

Sugar Cheeries

I Am Wearing :

Cardi - Primark
Jumpsuit - c/o Sugarhill Boutique
Cherry Slip Ons - H&M
Lipstick - Mac
Novelty Drumstick Bag - Next

I LOVE a good jumpsuit - as you already know - I have spent most of the flippin summer in a jumpsuit!! They are just SO easy to wear!

One Item - no need to think about matching your separates - just throw it on and go! You don't have to worry about your top being tucked in or out AND you can sit cross legged on the floor and not worry about flashing your pants - this is a problem I often face!!

My Jumpsuit collection is steadily growing and this Sugarhill Boutique number is a perfect addition to my wardrobe!

I can't go without talking about my new fav sequin initialed slip ons! When I saw the sparkly C glinting at me across H&M's shop floor my inner magpie swooped over and frantically searched for my size! As luck would have it, the fashion stars had alined and this Cinderella found her glass slip on!!

Don't you just love it when you find your soul mate in a shoe!

I do apologise for the excessive use of shoe puns in this post - just couldn't help myself! #SorryNotSorry

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and have managed to find the sunshine wherever you are!
