Helplessness Blues


I went on a little shopping trip last week with the lovely Rebecca and picked up some well needed bits and bobs! Amongst spending stupid amounts of time in Topshop and Primark (as you do) I did manage to pick up some mother's day and birthday presents! I literally just typed out what I brought for my mum for mothers day - I'm so silly! You never know when she could lurk onto my blog and have a nosey!

Anyway, as you can see I choose to sport the ombre hair extensions, which I think I've only worn once since I actually did them! I have no idea why, because I was so so excited when I actually got round to buying a set and bleaching them! Eeesh anyway, love them, they're so long and make me feel like a mermaid! You can read my post on how I did them here.

I also wore my gold tip collar shirt from Select which I absolutely adore. And tucked it in to my new pleated skirt that I got in the New Look sale for 7 little pounds! Was so pleased when I bagged this little number, it's really light weight so perfect for Spring/Summer but can be smartened up so easily! I also just threw on this scarf I got from Primark a while a go now, and this long black blazer to keep warm, also from Primark!

Just to let you guys know, I've been short listed for British Style Blogger's 'Blogger of the Month' award and I'm so, so pleased! You can go here to see the 4 other lovely bloggers who have been short listed!

Finally, just a little question for you guys. I get a lot of comments on my hair, so was wondering what you guys think of me making a video on how I create this look (click here). If you like the idea, just leave a comment below letting me know so, and I'll probably get round to it next week! If it goes well, I may start filming more videos, but who knows! Thanks!

  12. HELLO! I had a lovelylovely time in town with you last week! Just want to apologise for me taking foreverrrrrrrrrr in Topshop, I really couldn't decide but I'm very happy with my little jumper and highlighter (thank you for reminding me about it, it's made me a very happy girl!).
    I loved what you were wearing, especially the collar of the shirt! I feel like a right muppet because I didn't even notice you had ombre hair extensions! But they're really nice and making me want some.
    Congratulations on being shortlisted missy, I'm sure you'll win! Looking forward to our next shopping trip or whatevzz soon!

  19. Great blouse, alternate to the zara one that's way to expensive.lol will deffo have a look in select now!
    Love your hair as always, wish I could wake up to hair like that everyday.lol
    Spending ages in topshop and primark is a normality.. but looking at things in topshop then finding alternates cheaper in primark is well worth it! :)
