White slide on shoes: ASOS

I don't often buy new shoes but since we moved house & having to sort all my shoes out I realised that they are all completely battered! So what does one do when they need shoes? Goes & scrolls endlessly through ASOS obviously!

I wan't looking for anything in particular, just something comfortable & minimal. I came across the MAKE IT HAPPEN pointed flat shoes, instantly put them in my basket & that was that!

They arrived & I can confirm they are so comfortable & so pretty! I have't actually worn them out yet because they are not very weather appropriate at the moment & I don't want to ruin their shiny whiteness in the rain but I'm sure you will be seeing them on my feet in an outfit post eventually.

Have you bought any new shoes from ASOS recently?

B E A U T Y // N E W H A I R


Pink hair dye: Carnation pink by La Riche Directions // Peach hair dye: Awkward Peach by Bleach London

If you know me or have been following me since my 'effiesmakeupbox' days, you'll know that I am no stranger to the hair dye bottle. I have basically had every colour under the sun on my head in my lifetime. Seriously, you name the colour, I have probably had it in my hair at some point!

I had my orange and red hair for a good 5 years, probably the longest I have ever kept a hair colour & also my favourite but it's always nice to have a change every now & again.

If you follow me on Twitter / Instagram you will probably have noticed that I had been groing my roots out for a good 18 months & my roots were pretty long. I did this for a couple of reasons, one because my scalp really doesn't enjoy hair dye & I thought it deserved a bit of a rest & two I kind of wanted to know what my natural hair looked like because I hadn't seen it for a good 15 years FIFTEEN YEARS!

Anyway, long story short I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of my roots & going full pink for a good few months now & as you can see from the image above, I finally took the plunge! Now I don't want to make this blog post majorly long so if you are interested in how I achieved this look, let me know & I'll film a video explaining everything!

What do you think of my new hair colour? Have you ever dyed your hair pink? Would you ever dye your hair an 'unnatural' colour?

L O O K B O O K / M A R C H 1 6


I'm back making YouTube videos! Hahahah! HOW many times have I said this in the past?
Seriously though, I am feeling super motivated with my blog right now so I am literally just going to go with it. If my brain is telling we it wants to blog, I'ma blog! If I feel like making a video, then that's what I'm going to do!

Enjoy my March Lookbook. I am going to try & make them a regular thing (monthly hopefully) but let me know your thoughts. Do you prefer fashion videos? Hauls? Lifestyle? Vlogs? LET.ME.KNOW!

O O T D / 2

Baker boy hat: ASOS // Khaki duster jacket: Topshop // Cut out high neck top: Boohoo // Split front trousers: Cheap Monday @ ASOS // Pointed flat shoes: Primark // Alexander Wang Rocco Bag: Coggles

R A M B L E :

Well it's been a little while since I've done this! I have to admit it felt a bit strange standing in a public place taking outfit photos. I was so used to doing it 4 years ago, it was just so normal having people walk past & watching but I have to admit, I did feel a little cringe when we were taking these. Not because I was embarrassed as such, more that I felt totally out of practice! I'm pretty sure after a few more attempts it will all be 'normal' again.

O U T F I T :

I have really been digging minimal style at the moment. Clean cuts & muted colours really do seem the way forward. Comfort is also key for me as there's nothing worse than feeling totally uncomfortable in an outfit whether I'm wearing it all day or just a few hours, it must be as comfortable as possible.

These split front leggings by Cheap Monday are my new go-to trousers. Considering they are actually leggings, they are pretty flattering. The cut is not too tight & I am a huge fan of the split ankle detail. They definitely tick all the comfort boxes too!

Can we talk about the 'man repeller' that I am wearing on my head? I call it the man repeller as it seems almost every dude that has come into contact with me whilst I've been wearing it has either compared me to George RR Martin or Captain Birdseye, HA! I'm a big fan of the baker boy hat myself hence why I'm wearing mine but I am curious to hear your opinions!

Sorry again for my rustiness but I guess I'll sign off with a 'speak to you soon' as I am planning on making this whole blog post thing a lot more regular again!

Photos c / o Garry Finch, View more here.

For those of you who don't know MyBag is an online handbag & accessories shop full of the latest luxury & designer pieces (shop MyBag New In) & I was lucky enough to be invited along to their blogger event at Artisan Kitchen & Bar in Spinningfields, Manchester.

Aside from catching up with fellow blogger comrades & supping on a cocktail or two. The MyBag Spring Summer 2016 collection was strong! With a mixture of pastel pompom designs from GRAFEA to the novelty Lulu Guinnes clutch bags. The product styling was also on point! I'm talkin' flowers everywhere! And when is that ever a bad thing?

Since getting my Alexander Wang bag it has made me appreciate designer bags on a whole new level & seeing all of these beautiful bags laid out was a real treat. Maybe it's time for me to film a classic 'What's in my handbag' video for my YouTube!

If you want to see more photos just jump on the #MyBagSS16 hashtag on Twitter & Instagram!

I'm off to have a rummage through the goodie bag MyBag kindly gifted to us! (I'm sure I'll be sharing the contents of that on here soon too!) Thanks for having us MyBag!
