NEW IN: PEACH HAIR

DSC00326
I decided it was time for a change,not exactly a permanent one but one that gets me out of the "Fuck sake I hate my hair" phase.
It's at that stage where it hits the back of your neck and kinks up,needing the roots done and most annoyingly the toner has vanished and left me looking like a Simpson.

I'm holding a small giveaway for anyone that feels the same.You can win a pack of Flashmob hair chalks to brighten up your life.Create streaks,ombre or a full head of colour...non permanent but a lot of fun.
DSC00357All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me your worst hair-mare,what went wrong?who did it? regretted a pixie cut? etc

I will pick a winner at random,GOOD LUCK

Much Love

JEWELLERY: BODYJEWELLERYSHOP

As you can probably tell I've always been a fan of piercings and tattoos and I also like changing up the jewellery I wear because the same old chunk of silver can sometimes get a bit boring.

I've recently come across an online retailer called Body Jewellery Shop who stock some awesome jewellery products,there are tonnes to choose from and definitely worth a look if you are a body mod junkie like myself.They cater for all sorts,starting from a normal ear piercing to belly,tragus,nipple,internal and tunnels & plugs.

Head over and check out the site,you are bound to find something you love

SLOB

BEANIE: STUPIDCLOTHING // JUMPER: SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE // JOGGERS: LEGGSINGTON // NEW BALANCE: ASOS

This is the kind of outfit I wear pretty much every day....
Lots  of posts I put up are just styled up,taken photos of and not actually worn out so I wanted to be real and put up a slobbing around outfit that I live in and " run my errands" in,because lets face it,what blogger realistically runs errands in heels and a mini skirt?

It's always nice to add a print to an otherwise dull outfit so I opted for this lovely soft leopard number,although its a thin jumper its very warm and cosy and kind of makes me look like I tried.

Whats does your slob outfit consist of?

I'm afraid i've been a very bad blogger and not uploaded as much as i'd like to over the last few weeks,I moved out over christmas and now my boyfriend and I are living together so things have been a bit hectic,hence the shoddy,lack of posts but i'm back in the swing of things and thought what better way to  start than an outfit post.

I received this lovely jumper the other day and although its quite girly I wanted to try and style it up in a tougher way with lots of leather and hints of copper hardware.Its a perfect day to day outfit and the furry gilet makes having no sleeves super warm.

How would you style this jumper?

NEW IN: REDKEN STRENGTH BUILDER

THE CLAIM:

"Repair and strengthen your dry, damaged hair with Redken Extreme Strength Builder. It’s an intense, silky rich fortifying treatment for your distressed hair.
Redken's exclusive Interbond Conditioning System delivers a unique 3D Repair Complex of proteins, ceramide, and lipids to provide internal strength, cuticle reinforcement and protective resurfacing. The condition of your hair will be beautifully enhanced with increased manageability and extra shine thanks to Redken Extreme Strength Builder"
MY VIEWS:
I am in love with this product,my hair as you all know, is bleached and toned and goes through hell so it needs moisture 24//7 otherwise it starts breaking,it's dry and quite honestly it looks shit!! This product is a god send,I shampoo as normal and then whack it onto towel dried hair leaving it anywhere between 5-20mins (however long I'm in the shower/bath).The smell is divine,it's sweet and fruity and leaves my hair smelling delicious.As for mending my hair,I've noticed a huge difference,it has more elasticity and the ends are magically healed.It also makes blowdrying and straightening a lot less hassle.
Although quite a pricey product,in my opinion its worth it and i'll continue to re purchase.You can buy it HERE

MAGNITONE LUCID

DSC00309DSC00308
I'm by no means a "beauty blogger" nor do I spend much on skincare and beauty products,however,I had heard a lot about the new Magnitone Lucid and I wanted to try it out and form my own opinion.

Whenever Winter strikes my skin starts to play up big time,I suffer from redness and under the surface spots which aren't squeezable (they are those horrible,sore,raised buggers).I wanted to see if the Magnitone lived up to its hype so I took it for a test drive.

It has two settings, A soft and gentle cleanse or a more abrasive one (which I haven't tried yet,mainly because my skin is super sensitive) The bristles are amazingly soft and feel lovely against your face.It is also waterproof so you can use in the bath or shower,a massive bonus in my eyes!! * I use it with my Effacalar Cleanser *

ONTO THE REVIEW...

I LOVE IT!! Me being me I forgot to take before photos but I can honestly say its my new favourite beauty tool and I use it everyday without fail.It has cleared up my redness a hell of a lot and I no longer have those horrible raised bumps on my cheeks.Another thing I have noticed is my face feels so much smoother and my make up goes on seamlessly.It has a huge thumbs up from me and I highly recommend getting one if you suffer with the same skin problems.

VICAR

DUSTER COAT: YOINS // SHIRT: SHEINSIDE // LEGGINGS: LEGGSINGTON // HEELS: MISSGUIDED // 
WATCH: NIXON

I know what you're thinking...Kate,you look like a vicar ready for a night out! I agree,however I ADORE this outfit,its not anything I would usually wear but I thought I'd get out of my comfort zone and try something a tad different.
I haven't taken these leggings off since they came through the post,they are surprisingly warm so at the moment I'm pairing them with everything I own.
This duster coat is also a new addition to my wardrobe,a basic,it can be worn with anything,it's great for layering  and it just adds that extra bit of warmth.

Hope you are all getting in the Christmas spirit and had a lovely weekend

P.S You can grab a cheeky 15% off from Leggsington using the code 'kate'

TOMBOY

BEANIE: CARHARTT // JUMPER: CHARITY SHOP // SKIRT: HYBRID // ADIDAS GAZELLE: SOJEANS

I think its fair to say that its a tad too chilly to wear this skirt but I had a vision as soon as it popped through my letter box and that vision was this outfit.
I'm not entirely sure I can pull off the whole 'smart skirt with tomboy accents' style but I had a go and i'm quite fond of the outcome.I didn't want to wear it like the typical girl would (high heels and a crop top) because lets face it,its far too bloody cold and would be an unrealistic outfit for the day time!!

How would you style it?

THE CAMEL COAT

P1100336P1100344P1100346P1100339P1100342P1100341
COAT: RARE LONDON // SNOOD : FUNI // JEANS: TOPSHOP// JUMPER: CHOIES // NEW BLANACE: ASOS

The Camel coloured trend has been around for quite a while now and as usual I'm the last to jump on the band wagon,however,I'm not a fan of the bog standard, structured trench style as they tend to drown my figure, so when I came across this lovely duffle style coatigan my eyes lit up.Its super warm and cosy but is also thin enough to layer underneath another coat if required.

As for the rest of the outfit,I kept it really casual,threw on my trustworthy jamie jeans,a snuggly snood and my extremely comfy New balance and I was good to go.

Much Love
