Twenty Four




Dress - H&M / Floral Headband - Crown & Glory / Necklace - Astrid & Miyu*
Rings - Galibardy, Urban Outfitters, Me & Zena

I'm back! Sorry for the major lack of blog posts last month. I had a terrible time healthwise and even had to go to hospital so blogging wasn't really my main priority. Infact there was probably only four days that I actually enjoyed during August. One was my 24th birthday on the 16th and the Leeds Blogger Meetup on the 18th. I wore this exact outfit for both of these occasions because I love this look so much and am also an incredibly lazy dresser. I'd wanted one of Sophie's gorgeous Whole Lotta Rosie floral headbands for ages and I finally decided to order the cream one. I just want to wear it everyday of my life from now on. The lilac and pink ones are definitely future purchases. My pink hair is sadly no more. I had my roots done last month and it all pretty much washed out with the toner. I do miss it so it might make a comeback. I'm tempted to go for something really different like baby blue or mint green.



My mum and sister came up for a couple of days for my birthday. They treated me and Chloe to some shopping in Manchester and a slap up Japanese feast at Samsi. I had a deluxe chicken bento box and it was absolutely delicious. I even ate some salmon sushi and I've refused to eat fish since I was 5 years old, thats how good it was! Chloe ate loads of vegetable tempura. I was surprised she had room considering how much of my cake she ate that morning. Andy couldn't get the day off work but he plonked my huge French Fancy cake on the bed before he left. That was literally all I asked for as a birthday present & it was definitely worth the infinite calories.

The Leeds blogger meetup organised by Ray & Tor was so much fun. It was great to meet some new bloggers & be reacquainted with the familiar faces I met at the meetup last year. Unfortunately I didn't get round to meeting everyone, probably because I was too busy propping up the bar with cherry vodka cocktails. Mook is my favourite bar in Leeds. Their cocktails are ridiculously strong & the 2 for 1 offer is too good to resist. I enjoyed the presentation from Xen Tan a lot and might possibly lose my fake tan cherry soon if I'm ever feeling brave enough. I just can't imagine myself with a darker face, maybe I'll look normal for once? So excited to try out the Glam Glow mask too. We got some really fab goody bags and I'll be posting about some of my favourite items soon. The day ended with a much needed Nando's trip with Ray, Jo, Tor & Sinead. I can't wait for the next one!

  15. Beautiful outfit and the rose headband adds such a girly touch to it! I love your pink hair, but I think it would look amazing another colour too! I'd love to do that to my hair, but having black hair, I would pretty much destroy it bleaching it!

    Happy belated birthday too! Your cake looked absolutely delicious and that's so great how you finally tried salmon sushi, isn't it amazing?!
