Hey Sailor Freshers.








Top Topshop
Skirt Miss Selfridge
Necklace Primark

Yesterday I was helping out the Hey Sailor team at the Scot Campus Freshers Festival at the SECC.

We spent the day down at the SECC handing out flyers and spreading the word of Hey Sailor, getting to talk to loads of people about what we are all about (How awesome we are!) There was also tons of free food and offers on, god I miss being a student!

Hey Sailor are just about to launch The Hey Sailor Newsletter so if you want to know more about whats going on then you can sign up here.

What do yo think of my "Pin Up" and accidentally sailor themed look, not gonna lie, I was loving it. Gonna try this look more often.

From Sketch to Store.

Ughhhhhhh. I am IN LOVE with this dress. This is it obviously belted up but it looks amazing hanging down too. Its really long but for some reason it works. I just couldn't justify £110 on it. 
I'll keep an eye on the sale :(  

So on ... Wednesday night, fresh from night shift, I met up with Lisa & Sami and we headed to Princes Square for the #Sketchtostore event with French Connection. The night was just a wee look round the store and all the new season line, which if course I loved and mentally spend a fortune!

I tried on my 3 favourite pieces on and honestly if I could I would have taken them all ... although that sequined dress probably weighed more than me ...  

My obvious favourite was the horse patterns ... I'll admit it ... when I was a kid I was one of those horse mad girls, everything horses. To this day, at 23 I am still obsessed with My Little Pony ... but this is a more age appropriate horse pattern.

Green and Purple, Really.

Top Primark
Sheer Bolero Got in Gibraltar
Trousers H&M
Flat Forms River Island
Necklace Primark
Rings Forever 21 and Primark

I know you shouldn't really mix purple and green, but I love this nail colour too much to take it off just yet. I kept everything else monochrome so it wasn't too much, and I wore my flat forms cause pretty soon it will be too cold to wear them!

I don't really have much else to say really! Nothings really going on right now, but thats ok, its quite relaxing. Plus I finally feel like I'm in my wee blog routine so :) Hope you guys are enjoying it as much as me!

On the 19th and 20th I will be down at the SECC with Hey Sailor at the Freshers Fayre from 10am to 4pm! 
Come say Hi if your going along!

Hair Update 3.

 

We are now in month 3. My hair is about 3/3.5 cm long. Which seems sooo long now compared to when I first shaved it.

Its now so long that I have to wear a wig cap so it doesn't peek through.

Its in great shape and is getting to a point were I cold consider wearing it out. Since its all the one length though, I feel like I look like Dennis the Menace.

I also agreed to do a sponsored "Don't wear your wig to work day" which is great because it makes more money for the charities ... but I dunno how brave I am ...

Don't Look Down.

 


 
 

 

Shirt Sainsbury's
Dress Vintage

Necklace Matalan

Boots New Look 

I wore this today to work after having one of those ping moments when I remembered I had this dress. I styled it with my white shirt and my jeans to tone down the dress and make it more casual. Its a dress I always feel really comfortable in so I'm always trying to think of ways to make pieces like this go both ways. I guess so I feel as though I'm getting more use out of them.
So
The Big news. That job. I didn't get it ...
BUT ... I did get a stand in position. Which basically means, any day that the Stylist is off/on holiday, it will basically be down to me. So its not a bad situation at all. If anything its probably better for me. I know that I can do things, and do them well, but then. Right at the last second, I just get that sense of impending doom, and I completely panic. So being a stand in eases me into it a little more, so it doesn't seem as scary! So all in all I'm quite happy with the situation. Its something new and its a step in the right direction.

Thank you guys for all the good luck wishes and messages, I say it all the time, you are absolute babes, and my days wouldn't be as bright without you guys sometimes! 
HEAVY CHEESY!

Repellers.

Mama Bran took these photos for me, shes not done bad for a first go. 
Watching her try to battle with my SLR was hysterical.

 I have had this dress for years, since like 2007. It looked quite nice today so I thought it would be good to try and get some final use out of some summery clothes. I'm also trying to break in these shoes, which is the reason for the "Man Repellers" (socks) although I think I will wear them loads in Autumn with socks. Don't hate.

Forever in Neon.

Remember that really hot week we had in July. Well thats when I found this coat. Madness but I have been absolutely itching to get it out and in the fresh air! I have said it already I want winter to hurry up! A statement I'm sure I will regret greatly soon enough.

I got this shirt a few weeks ago, and I know. Its a lot of neon, but you know if you keep the colours neutral then I say go mad with it! 

I'm hoping to really throw myself back into the blog. My internship is almost over, so I will get that time back, plus an extra day since I now only work 4 days instead of 5. Its getting dark though which is always a nightmare for photos. BLOGGER PROBLEMS!
