I can’t remember where I saw it, but I saw someone with a halo braid like this one and I thought that it looked really cool! So I tired to do it, and it turns out, it’s really easy to do! I uploaded a picture of me wearing this hairstyle on my instagram, and I got like a ton of likes, which made me feel like some instgram queen! So I thought I’d do a little tutorial/How To type thing..

I used some Toni & Guy sea salt spray, which actually makes your hair taste of salt! So this added a bit of texture to my hair so it was easier to handle, you can use any texture type spray, or nothing at all!

Once you’ve decided if you’re going to use any product, you just get a middle parting, plaid each side like you used to when you were a kid! Good times! And then take the hair band out, and pin each one to the top of your head! Simple! When you are putting the plaid on your head, you’ve got to kind of adjust it a bit, and make it so it lies against your head nicely.

This is a really quick and easy hairstyle, and the best bit is you don’t have to keep adjusting it and making sure it’s still intact throughout the day! I hope you give it try, I can’t wait to see everybody in halo braids!

So I haven’t posted in awhile, not gonna lie, I’ve just been plain lazy! But the sunshine is out here today, and it is making me feel so summery! And there are a couple of sunrays peaking through my window, so I thought it would be light enough to take some photos! Hopefully the quality isn’t too shabby.

Anyways, I bought these Topshop Boots yesterday, I’ve had my eye on them for a couple of weeks now, and I was just going to try them on, and of course I ended up buying them! They are so nice though! They are soo comfy, and I can’t walk around in heels to save my life, but these look so much higher than they actually are, because of the platform! So I can also walk around in them, which is helpful!

The other new purchase, is this dress, from Voulez Vous which was a brand in Debenhams, just stumbled across it! I have seen so many check, collared dresses that I thought I would jump on the band wagon, and  join in! It’s so nice this one, it’s got a velvety texture so it’s so soft! It joins the bodice and skirt, in just the right place, to pull you in at the waist and skim over my stomach, and hips nicely!

The last product I thought I would include in this post is the watermelon shorts. Primark has some really nice spring shorts and jackets in at the moment, with some really cool prints! I saw the watermelon, and just melted a little, had no idea what the hell I would wear them with! But £10 well spent I think! They’re actually really good quality for Primark! There’s binded seams on the inside, that don’t feel like they’re going to fall apart as soon as you touch them! So jump on the crazy prints this spring!

Sheinside Check coat

Sheinside Floral Bomber Jacket

New Look Skirt

Eminem Rap God T-shirt

Primark Shoes

At some point today, the clouds parted and it was relatively sunny in Manchester today and nicely lit up my room for some lighting for a blog post! I got so excited that it was sunny I even put a skirt on, which comes out in a funny colour in these pictures, it’s not quite as garish as that in real life! But anyway, I recently received my order from Sheinside.com, which took forever to arrive! So I thought I would blog about both the bomber jacket and the check coat at once. Sheinside has such good prices for the products they have, the only thing I would aware of is the quality is not amazing. The bomber jacket is slightly small across the shoulders and the sleeve length, and I had to trim loads of loose threads off it when it arrived. The coat feels really thick, and is so comfy and warm, and it does have an ASOS label in it… But one of the pockets has already ripped.

Regardless of where it’s from, and how long it took to arrive I love the coat. I haven’t bought a patterned coat before, usually I just stick to the plain dark colours, so it’s really nice to try something new. And it goes with a lot more that I thought it would. As with the bomber jacket, I really wanted a bomber jacket, and I wasn’t sure about getting one with a pattern but I’m so glad I did. I wear it all the time, and I can’t wait to wear it in the summer!

The T-shirt shirt is the result of late night online shopping at it’s finest! I was on Facebook at ridiculous o’clock and saw a post about some limited edition Eminem T-shirt that would only be on sale for 24 hours. And for some reason I bought one! It cost £23 including shipping which was £11, as it was from America I guess. This is a women’s large, kind of wish I had got a men’s size now as I wanted it to be looser fitting, but ah well! It has the lyrics from Rap God on it, which I thought would be a little bit more noticeable, but are non existent in the pictures!

River Island Jumper

River Island Jeans (Similar)

Primark Shoes

New Look Necklace(Similar)

H&M T-shirt

I know I haven’t posted in a while, so I thought I would do a quick outfit post before I go shopping! So, I really like this jumper, it’s so comfy and not at all itchy. It has massive square holes knitted into it, which gives it a really nice texture, and means you can mix up the contrast of colours, depending on what you wear underneath. The only reason I don’t wear it that much is because the fit is so frumpy, I feel really fat in it, and the sleeves could be a little bit longer. But these jeans, I love them. I always get my jeans from River Island, as they’re consistently such good quality. But the price of them have gone up recently, I used to get a really decent pair for £40, but now the decent fit and quality is in the £60 pairs. Which isn’t great! 🙁 But these jeans have lasted ages, and I think they’ve still got plenty of life in them yet!
