Victorian School Child


So, I spent the weekend in Manchester - I went to visit a couple of my friends and although the 4 and half hour megabus journey was KILLAH...I had a nice time, just wish I could've stayed longer. Whenever I seem to go to Manchester I always have to go home the next day. Gonna try to get back up during the next half term break.
Before I had to go and get the bus home I had a quick browse in some of the vintagey shops, and found this silly lil dress in Oxfam. I didn't take a photo, but originally it nearly touched the floor and had extra frills which I just cut off to try and make it a bit cuter - I think it worked and I actually really love it.
 Whaddaya reckon? It does kind of look like Pjs...haha

Don't you just love the 3 empty bottles of wine on the table? Haha..

Anyway, so..I'm also having a bit of trouble with my hair, like serious trouble. It is SO dry...and there is nothing that makes it better! I've tried argan oil, no heat, olive oil masks, no silicone shampoos... I DUNNO WHAT TO DO! The top half of my hair has broken off so it looks like I have shit layers, which I hate....so I keep pinning them back (kind of adds to my 'Little House on the Prairie' look today ;) )....does anyone have any advice? (and no jokes about the fringe please :P)

Finally, today I signed up to Glossybox cos it seems AWESOME.. I love make up, beauty products and surprises...so I'm looking forward to my little present every month. I think I'm really behind with this trend but if you haven't heard of it...basically you pay about 10 quid for a box, they deliver you samples of new beauty products by good brands and it's surprise what you get.. If you wanna sign up or have a look, click this link.. (if I get 5 people to sign up I can have a free box, SO SIGN UP BITCHES!) ahem..Glossybox

That's all from me! ADIOS xxxx

clown coat


Yes I've been awful, but promise I'll get back to regular posts soon! For now, a quick update!
I got a sweet new coat from Romwe:
Pretty much completely in love with it... got an old Forever 21 blouse on underneath. I was going for a bit of a clown look I guess... :s

Can't remember where the gloves are from!...but I also wore my Jeffrey Campbell boots <3

Love them so much.

In other news, I wore this for valentines:

tee hee

Photos from the past few months

Well, as I've been awful at updating this for a while I thought I'd do a post of my changing hair over the past few months. It's ginger again now but it's been a few different colours and is in god damn awful condition! Although it's getting better now I've been using Argon oil and hair masks constantly. PHEW. So here it goes, also I've done one outfit post woooooooooooooo.. :-)

The dark corally pink stage

I kinda LOVE this hair

Went to Green Man festival in Wales which was excellent. Had this wonderful shade of pink which was pretty candyfloss... I loved it. FLOWER POWER <3 PEACE <3

This is the only picture of the purple hair I had... made it by mixing the pink shade (Cerise by Directions) with a blue shade (a dark navy by Directions...can't remember what it's called)... and diluting it with a whole bottle of conditioner. Only problem was that I kept running out of the mixture so that's why it's different shades, cos I made it slightly different each time. I really wanted lilac, but I just couldn't do it.

Blonde! ...As you can see my hair was falling out at this stage, lols. Anyway...I kept the blonde for a couple of weeks but I HATED it...I just could not get used to being a blonde, really don't think it suits me...

Anyway, outfit time! I bought this amazing sparkly jumper with pockets from Primark a couple of weeks back, it's ACE. Got it in a large size cos I like it big.

Got the dress from New Look for 20 quid.. I like the collar, and it kinda makes me feel like a lil french maid ;) (Sorry these photos ain't great by the way..)

Here's me looking well happy! 

I also tried out a new hair style for the first time in ages!
Was going for a Lana Del Rey kinda look.. what do you think?

I also have to get some new booties. My beautiful green velvet ones from Topshop are falling apart. So much velvet has come off, the sole is coming away from the shoe..and worst of all...there is a hole in the top of one of them! BAH.. So I'm getting these BAD BOYS:

Topshop dress with issues


So I found this dress in a charity shop the other week. It's from Topshop originally and is a really strange fit. Basically, the dress is a size 8 and I thought it would be fine because it is like a weird lycra material.. but's it weird, man. The top of the sleeves constantly fall down! I don't get it.... if anything it should be tight rather than falling down! So I have to keep tucking it into my bra straps which is a bit annoying but I really like the print and the colours and I really want to dye my hair lilac next and this dress will go AWESOME with that hair... well..it'll be very matchy matchy, but I love a good match.
Here I am looking SO happy..
My hair is pretty multicoloured and isn't quite a deep as this picture makes out....I am loving it though!

Oh la la. Hope you're all well! I'm going to Greenman festival at the weekend and I CAN'T WAIT...It'll be my first festival (at the grand old age of 24)..and I'm hoping it doesn't rain, cos I ain't got no wellies!

In a while crocodiles! xxxx

Handmade "Guess Who?".KFC Cakes.Rocket Rucksacks

Hey guys!

I have so much to post, so many new outfits..well like..2 or 3 I think? Hmm anyways, I still haven't done photos cos I have been so busy really. It was my kid brothers 18th birthday the other week and I made him some AWESOME things (If I do say so myself)
1. KFC Birthday cake (not chicken flavour) - Handpainted Colonel Sanders on a slightly wonky bucket, he loves KFC.

2. Nicolas Cage customised box set

3. Personalised "Guess Who?" featuring a variety of people and characters that my brother loves (Nicolas Cage, Steven Seagal, The Irn Bru man etc etc) ....Seriously, this took me SO long to do. I had to draw each card 3 times (for the red board, the blue board and the actual cards you choose from) .... That's why the Colonel on the cake is so perfect, I had already drawn him 3 times! HA.

It was then my cousins 40th birthday and my sister came down to visit with her gorgeous kids:

(I wore the black velvet dress to both of those events LOL)

Tomorrow I am going to take some photos after work of a few outfits so I can line up some posts.. but for now you'll just have to settle for this hideous silver jacket I tried on in Zara (actually think I'm kinda working it in this photo, but it is seriously petty rank.) Dunno what is going on there at the moment, the mens stuff was just horrific...usually I love Zara Man, but stone wash ripped jeans with a beatlesque jacket...hmmm.

OOOOH and now, FINALLY...FINALLY! I just ordered the best rucksack ever. I have been looking for one for ages and now, I just found on on Etsy and yes, it's for kids: 

I get to have MY NAME on the back! I have opted for "Kess" (the first part of my last name) instead of my first name, cos that's cooler right? ;)

Anyway, I'm off.. Catch you later, hot potata x
