i got the magic in me





cardigan: topshop
vest dress: asos
rings: jwlry
necklace: forever 21
nails: models own top turquoise
lips: mac hue

Wore pretty much the same outfit as yesterday, oversized cardigan + black dress. Done. Ikea was good, I bought some pillows and some candles and ate lots of food (huh diet please!). There was a total store evacuation while I was there and everyone in the building had to be evacuated, luckily me and mum had just paid, however I had just bought a Mr Whippy Ice Cream and I had to leave before I could get any ice cream so I only had a cone. I then managed to pull a muscle in my chest when picking something up and then to rub salt in my wounds afore mentioned ice cream (when we were finally allowed back in) was accidentally dropped on the floor. You have to laugh but oh god life is a joke.

I don't do Topshop knitwear, I think its terribly over priced for its general poor quality. This was down in the sale though from £38 to £18, I like the colour (I love pink and black at the moment!) and I thought I'd be a devil and break duh rulez.

Ps. Told you my hair was VERY BLONDE. Going to work on the fade between the brown and the blonde a bit so the ombre is higher and more towards the crown once my hair a recovers a little from being bleached!

  2. Wow it really is blonde isn't it! I agree it needs a little work on the fade transition but it looks nice! I really like how casual but cute this outfit is, it looks 'done' but 'undone' if that can make any sense at all!

  3. agreed with topshop knitwear, horrendously overpriced! wince worthy.

    love the new hair, it's so good! i'd love to try ombre as i don't dye my hair but i don't think you get the same effect with curly hair, sadly.

    hope you're good.

  5. Holy blonde! I do love it though.
    IKEA has the best food selection (frozen yogurt, yum!), and all of the accessories are cute too.
    That's funny about the evacuation, IKEA always is packed!

    I don't wanna be a party pooper...but I liked the "previous ombre hair" better. Just my opinion lol

  10. love the cardi, and yh topshop knitwear is really too expensive :(

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow, SO BLONDE. I do like it though. Looks good condition still too! I recommend the green Kerastase range (it's got protein in it) to make your hair feel stronger rather than softer if it needs it. It's like hair medicine and smells so good. I went to IKEA the other day, such a good sale on but we didn't get all that much really. I want a real tan :(

  26. Yea, it is really blonde but I like it a lot, it suits you well, too. I also really like the outfit, black and this kinda pale nudish pink go so well together, I think. The jumper looks super comfy as well x

  27. Aaaah the blonde is such a pretty color!

  32. Lovley! Did you bleach it yourself or have it done?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sounds like a bit of an Ikea nightmare- something always goes wrong there from my previous experiences.. Very much agree about Topshop knitwear, I never buy it, it's ridiculously priced! The hair looks fab! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love your new haircolor!
    Oh and I know what you're going through with your icecream and stuff haha. same here x

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the hair, it looks amazing and i 100% agree about topshop knitwear far too expensive and wash it once and its out of shape/ruined xx

    ReplyDelete
  36. i think the blonde is cool! maybe you should make your crown hair a somewhat caramel brown so the ombre effect is not as drastic (do i make any sense? :P)

    ReplyDelete
  37. You look lovely, I can't get over how light your hair is now you've redone it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's super blonde! I like it though.

    ReplyDelete
  43. how long did you leave the bleach on? not in a bad way i like the blonde-ness might try that bleach next time. I think it will fade more as you wash it :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the super blonde hair. And I agree about Topshop knits...all of mine seem to "die" after a few wears. x

    ReplyDelete
  45. Very blonde, but I think it suits you very well!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, you look amazing!
    Love your new hair <3

    ReplyDelete
  47. love the outfit, and your hair looks so good! I'd try ombre hair myself, but I have curly, short-ish hair, so I can't imagine it working! I totally agree with what you said about topshop knitwear, in fact the quality of a lot of things in topshop isn't too good anymore! <3

    ReplyDelete
  48. Your hair looks gorgeous this colour!
    I'm thinking of doing mine.. what dye did you use?! You're quite dark like me so it's good to know what works for us brunettes :)

  51. wow, blonde. I bought this cardigan also in the sale, but I returned it as I felt it was too itchy (I'm a freak).

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love the blonde! Shows you'd be able to pull off being all blonde very well :)

    Aww dropping ice cream is the worst, there's no recovering it haa!

  58. I totally agree about Topshop knitwear but that's a pretty good price to pay... although, cardigans like that should be £18 when they're not in the sale!

    P.S. Love your hair!

  60. I agree with topshop knitwear but i think that about most of the topshop range. over price and poor quality. (why oh why do i still shop there! i must admit that their clothes are a flattering fit).

    Your hair is lovely. LOVE the blonde. x

  74. Your hair has gone much blonder on the bottom. Did you colour again, or the colour just "opened".

  77. I was going to say its so BLOndE!! I love it! I was actually wondering if you could teach or explain how you are going to make it fade more, because I noticed its kind of brown and then blonde. I really want ombre hair, but more of a slight fade...
