The New Fro




Since moving back to the UK I've felt like I needed a change in the barnet department. Having long tresses is lovely but mine were lacking style and shape so I decided to try out middle parting fringe. 

HAIRSPIRATION



After googling a split middle fringe and centre parting fringe I came across these images for hairspiration and took them to my hairdresser. I still wanted to keep my length but cut a few layers in around my face and then the middle fringe. It's made such a difference and frames my face a lot better than the mop I had before!


I'm so happy with it and had lots of compliments too which is always a bonus. If you're looking to change up your long hair, I'd highly recommend a centre part fringe. It's a subtle change that'll really frame your face and gives a lot more shape to your hair. It looks great straight too but I'm a big lover of curls!

Have you changed up your hair recently?

After my recent haul, there's no surprise that I want to style all my new and shiny things! I am literally obsessed with these New Look  boots. They're a better version of the pair I lusted over in my AW14 Wants and Needs post (see here) as they're real leather and make your legs look super slim and elegant. The heel is the perfect size too! 

Hats have been a huge trend all year and paired with an oversized knitted cardi it's the perfect casual chic combination.

Autumn Hair- The braided headband

Braids have been a big trend this year, with milkmaid and fishtail styles being at the forefront. I really did adore milkmaid braids but with no fringe and a larger forehead, I found them hard to pull off!

As Autumn is well and truly here, I thought I'd continue the braid trend into the winter months, so whilst playing around with my hair one morning, I came up with this! It's kind of similar to the crown braids but simpler and only spans half way round your head. It consists of a plait each side of your head, crossing over and being pinned on the other side. Easy Peasy!

I think it's a really pretty autumnal alternative to foral crowns and would look lovely with a wool hat propped above it. It's also a great style if you're like me and have hair ll one length to add a bit of interest to your hair.

What do you think to this style? Are you rocking anything different for AW14?

AW14 Nail Polish Picks


I don't know about you but when it gets to this time of year I like to change up my nail varnishes to more autumnal colours. Bye bye brights, hello vampy darks and glitter!







I really love the Barry M Diamond glitter. I like shiny things so I am immediately drawn to it and think it's perfect over any of these shades for the upcoming party season and at £2.99 it's a bargain.  Both the Champneys colours are absolutely beautiful and at a moderate price of £5. The only thing that lets them down is I find they chip after a day or two of wear which is  such a shame but because the colours are so stunning I think I can let them off. As for the No7 polish in the shade thunderstorm- I love this. Priced at £6 it is long lasting with a brush that makes application so easy. It lasts a good amount of time and you can get away with just one coat! Now for the Natural Collection colour in black cherry... A lot of people give natural collection a bad rap but I think they're value for money. They're priced at £1.99 so cheap and cheerful and I've always found them to last well and dry super quick too. For me this shade is autumn in a bottle and I love it!

What are your nail polish picks for AW14? Check out the video below for more info and how I like to wear them.

AW14 Wants and Needs


1. eBay Grey denim acid wash tunic dress

2. New Look black chunky Chelsea boot

3. River Island Full Time Blogger Sweatshirt

4. Topshop flower beaded crop tee

5. River Island Kimono

6. Missguided Monochrom collared shirt dress

7. New Look tan leather multi strap boot

8. ASOS cold shoulder smock dress

9. New Look Burgundy Hogwarts jumper

I've never done one of these posts before but then again I've never been so excited for autumn! I've recently fallen back in love with Pinterest and whilst excitedly browsing the interweb for my autumn wardrobe, I thought I'd make a board of AW14 wants and needs.

I particularly need/want/lusting after those New Look heeled Chelsea boots as I think they'd be perfect for day and night. I had a pair similar but after lending them to my sister they got eaten by dogs (don't ask) so I'm in need of a new pair! I'm always desperate for the grey denim tunic. I don't know what it is about grey denim but I'm currently in love with it. I think it'd look amazing with back and burgundy and of course those Chelsea boots!

I'm not a partiularly practical dresser but decided I need some sweatshirts so if I'm going to wear them they've got to be awesome! As I'm technically a full-time blogger just now, the River Island sweatshirt is rather fitting and the Hogwarts one? Well...I'm a massive Harry Potter geek and when I saw this I literally squealed and showed Chris in excitement. If I don't treat myself to it it'll definitely be on the Christmas list!

I'm also loving swing dresses and smock dresses quite a lot at the moment. They're just so comfy and I like the big baggy shape with tights and a pair of boots. I think this will more than likely be my look for AW14!

As for the other bits they're just pretty things really- need I say more? I'm constantly adding to this Pniterest board so make sure you check it out and follow me if it's up your street.

What are your AW14 wants and needs?
