A nerdy day out. Ootd

Hey Guys and Dolls!

I’ve had a really nice day today. My boyfriend has a week off work so we got to spend some time together this morning. We went into town to the comic book store. It’s super nerdy but we love it! 🙂 It doesn’t just sell comics, we go there to stock up on our anime and toy collections. After spending an hour or so nerding out at the comic book store we went to one of my fave shops. It’s called ‘Love from random’ and sells really cute kitsch gifts and loads of vintage toys, records and glassware. It is such a darling little store, I always find something fab in there. Today I bought this cute neon pink zipper bracelet. It’s so kooky, I love it! zip bracelet

 

So here is my outfit. I’m still wearing my gun tights and cat ears loads. I just can’t get enough of them!

Hey Guys and Dolls!

I dyed my hair again this weekend. This time I chose ‘Tropical green’ by Stargazer. It looks more blue than green but I have to say I’m really pleased with it.  I’ve never used stargazer before but my first impression of it is good.

Stargazer

I was a little worried because the bottle is teeny tiny but you only need a tiny bit of dye and it goes a really long way, in fact I think I have enough dye left to do my hair another 2 times. The dye comes in a box  with gloves (which are handy) and the bottle has an easy applicator nozzle so I didn’t have to use a bowl and tint brush which saved a lot of mess.

The colour is really bright and vivid. It’s also really close to the sample colour as you can see. sample and my hair

So I’m really happy with Stargazers tropical green. I would recommend stargazer to anyone. Oh and it’s animal friendly too 🙂

My hair has been really dry lately so I tried using argan oil that I bought in Morocco. It seems to be working quite well, my hair is a lot softer and shiny. I think I will keep using it.

Hope you guys all had a great weekend!

GIG Spotlight: What’s your fashion statement?

GIG

Hey Guys and Dolls!

You may remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote an entry for GIG spotlight, well  it’s time for another one! GIG is the girls inspired group, a really fab online community for bloggers. Check out their blog here.

The lovely ladies who run the group have come up with a great idea called ‘GIG spotlight’ basically the idea is that every two weeks they will establish a topic and then everyone in the group can write a blog post on that topic. Then the most creative entry will be chosen as their featured blogger. Pretty cool right?

This time around the topic is ‘What’s your fashion statement?’. The idea of this topic is that bloggers will showcase their personal style through specific items that they consider ‘must-haves’.

I recently read a wonderful interview with Anna Wintour in which she spoke about seeing a woman on an airplane wearing a classic channel suit with pearls and pairing it with some outrageous yellow nail art. Wintour  felt that this was the true meaning of style, someone who knows the fashion rules and then breaks them. I agree with Ms Wintour 100%. For me I think that style isn’t about putting yourself into one category and sticking with it. I think real style comes from not being afraid to break the rules and mix things up a bit. For me style is about having the courage to try something new and to make mistakes. I love to make a fashion statement but I could never define that statement as just one thing. I couldn’t label myself as just preppy, chic, boho, gothic, girly etc… My fashion statement is one that is always evolving and ever changing.

I’ve put together a ‘fashion statement’ outfit with some of my current must haves.

Fashion statement

Badass accessories

I love to wear quirky and unique accessories. here are some of my faves collage

Crazy hair colour.

I think my hair is really a big part of my fashion statement. I love crazy colours! collage

Something Indie

I like to wear stuff from independent labels and designers. It’s nice to know you are wearing something that is unique, hand made and not mass produced.

Bright colours

Brights and neons make life more exciting! 🙂

Bold prints

I like big bold prints. I also like to wear more than one print together, I guess that’s an example of breaking a fashion rule.

Killer shoes

I’m only tiny so I never ever wear flat shoes. I love shoes, I have over 70 pairs. I think I’m an addict! collage shoe

So that’s my fashion statement. Hope you guys liked it! Don’t forget to check out GIG, they really are fab girls. xx
