In hindsight I may have worn these trousers with a heel, as I appear to have lost a good few inches In the height department. But you know what, In this heat wave I'm surprised I've even manged to put clothes on, Whilst I'm writing this I have a fan aimed at my head and a massive litre bottle of water accompanying me everywhere I go, If only I was this good all year round with my water intake - The constant flurry off insistent youtubers and news bulletins telling me that I must drink gallons of water a day otherwise ill surely wrinkle like a prune, it's constantly playing on my mind every time I peer into a mirror.. Is it just me or does anyone else have Carolin Hirons voice playing In their head every time you miss a step In skincare, Or use the dreaded wet wipes of supposed doom?

If you follow me on twitter, you will have seen my frantic tweets about finally getting a new camera. My trusty old Sony served me well for a good few years but it just wasn't giving me the effects I wanted and we have now parted ways *Sigh*. I decided to go for the bloggers camera of choice the Canon 600, And I've not been disappointed absolutely love it! The picture quality and the speed of it is amazing, just wish I got it sooner! I've just been playing around with all the settings to try and get the look I want, not quite there yet but I'm enjoying testing it all out, Oh and the flipout screen is so handy, no more chopping my head off in selfies! 

These photos where completely spur of the moment, Joe and I where just walking back from the shops to get some bits after we both had a sudden craving to make burgers, we made a cheese sauce to pour over them, ooooooh they where yummy!

P.S I'm still in Amsterdam, But I'll be back tomorrow morning! Hope your having a lovely day  :) 

P.P.S I got my dress in Primark a few months ago, However there is an exact replica of it on Asos and its in the sale! Ill leave a link to it below.

DECOR: M&S Homeware Haul


All M&S:

When I signed up to Sky a few months back I was kindly given a M&S Voucher, now obviously this sparked a debate between my partner and I as to what to spend it on. I wanted to get some decorative bits for the house as these are the things I'm most reluctant to buy as I'm forever convincing myself that I can make it cheaper.. even though the majority of the time I certainly cant.. Where as Joe wanted to spend the money on a cutlery set. As you can see from the photos I won the argument (Woo!) 

This was my first time shopping In the home ware section of Marks and Spencers and I have to say I'm now smitten, Although the items are a little more expensive its totally worth it for the high quality. Who would have thought it, I went somewhere other than Ikea Huurrrayy!

Primark White Pleated Midi Skirt - Topshop Stripe Bardot - Asos Leather Belt  - Primark Birkenstock Dupes - H&M Burgandy Fedora

On Monday I'm heading off to Amsterdam for 3 days with Mr Wells, I've never been, I'm so excited! I've compiled a list of all the Things I want to Do/See - My need for list making has reached new (Slightly Worrying) heights this thing is a work of art! 
I'm planning on hunting down the best pancakes in town and checking out as many vintage stores and markets as I humanly can (Well as many as Joe can tolerate) oh and I'm also going to try and vlog it all, which I'm slightly nervous about, the thought of walking around with a camera in my face seems abit alien to me.. nonetheless Ill try it out for you guys! 

Any recommendations of things to do / see?

BEAUTY: Directions Alpine Green


My hair has been subjected to numerous experiments over the years, from dying it to weird and wonderful colours, to bleaching the life out of it and even once perming it so tightly I resembled a 80's footballer. A few years ago I made my peace with it and decided to go completely natural I cut all my hair off stripped the remaining colour out and just let it grow, a long and arduous task but well worth it. But recently I've grown tired of the same hair day in day out  and decided to give it a bit of colour but in a way that it wouldn't damage my hair and put me straight back to square one.

The first time I used Directions was back in 2010, I dyed my hair bright red and when I say bright I mean I bared a family resemblance to a certain famous clown. But I had bleached it prior to get that shade, which really damaged my hair. So I decided to see what would happen if I used it just on my natural locks.



What You Need:
- Clips
- Gloves
Directions Hair Dye - I used Alpine Green
- Colour Brush & Bowl (Optional)

1. Make sure you don't have any product In your hair, If there is wash it with a Ph Netural shampoo - Like this one from Simple.
2. Clip up the top section of your hair and apply it half way up, make sure there's not a straight line of the new colour, you want it to blend.
3. Let more hair down and repeat the process until all sections are covered.
4. Leave for 15 mins and wash out ( Use a dark towel it stains! )


I'm so happy with the end result, I really wasn't expecting it to take so well to my natural hair but its come out really bright with different shades of green. Its semi-permanent so its meant to wash out within 4 - 6 weeks - I might try another shade next time ooooh its so exciting, what colour shall I go next?

What do you think?

OUTFIT: Channeling Twiggy


c/o WalG Lace Collar Dress - Asos Cat Eye Sunglasses - White Head Scarf - Zara Leather Zip Jacket - Primark White Sandals

Have any of you been watching Dawn O'Porters 'This Old Thing' on channel 4? I've been obsessed ever since it aired, however I must admit my frustration every time I hear one of the guest being given a makeover regard all vintage clothing to be 'smelly' and that someone must have died wearing it - The urge to jump up and fly kick the screen does wave over me...
Dawn's love of the sixties must be contagious as I've been lusting after shift dresses and mini skirts ever since the first episode and without even realizing it she has inspired this look.
