Lauren Goodger's Birthday Cake!

Last week I went along to Lauren's Goodger birthday party over in Essex. It was like being in a episode of TOWIE! Sadly, I totally failed on the photography front but I did get a photo of the amazing cake! It's the iconic Chanel 2.55 bag!

House of Holland Spring Summer 13 Hair & Makeup

Yesterday I spent a bit of time recreating the House of Holland Spring Summer 13 Hair & Makeup look for The Hairdryer Diaries, so I thought I'd give you a sneak peek. Especially because once the post is live over there, you can enter a competition to win the products I used!

So here it is!

Ah I am so thrilled with my new uber bargain from discount designer mecca, The Outnet! It is a DKNY navy and black wool coat with leather sleeves.

Considering that I'm obsessed with navy and black together, and the leather sleeve, it it literally my dream coat! The major bonus is that I got it for 60% off!!

Here are some more pics of it!

TRESemme Texture Style Range

I am completely obsessed with texture in my hair at the moment. So obsessed, in fact, that I have even consulted the thesaurus to try and find a different word to describe texture, so that I am not constantly repeating myself! However, there really is no word as good as texture to describe what I want for my hair!

Anyway!! Enough rambling and on to the good news. TRESemme have just launched a fabulous new range called Texture Style. So get ready for much more hair excitement and use of the word 'TEXTURE'!! Texture texture texture...

I don't have a lot of baths but my little bit of 'me time' last night with this beautiful, relaxing fragrance could change all that!

Now apart from the heavenly fragrance, which I shall get onto in a bit, I was most impressed by the bubbles. I know that NEOM do heavenly fragrances, but as an organic and SLS free brand, can they do bubbles?

Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Awareness 2012

Holiday Post: Accessorize Bikini

Still working through all my holiday posts. I really need to get them out of the way before the sun completely vanishes! 

This is one of my fave bikinis.

Accessorize Bikini

It is really comfy and flattering and even looks good if you haven't got a tan. This is definitely more of a looking good bikini rather than a swimming one though, particularly if you are big busted. I had a slight problem with my boobs trying to escape out of the bottom when I was in the pool. Still a fave though!
