one hundred fires









dress: topshop via ebay
belt: primark
jacket: primark (off)
scarf: primark

Gosh, I didn't realise the time! It's been one of those days thats totally flown by without even realising it. I got my eyelash extensions done again today which I loooovee and finished up all my loose ends before going away on holiday. Im also somewhere near completely packed, I still need to sort out my hair products  You can see my new hair a bit better in these photos as it's not as curly as I did it in the other photos from when I first showed it off. Still loving it though! Much softer, prettier colour!

I just wore this simple striped red dress and a black belt with tights and my leather jacket. I bought this faux McQueen scarf from Primark to take away with me but thought I'd wear it today as I liked the *cringe alert* rock-y edge *cringe alert* it gave the outfit. It occurred to me recently I haven't been buying much from Primark as its way too hard to shop in ones in London. I didn't realise how lucky I was back home and going to the quiet large Primark in Telford! I now realise what people mean when they sat "I can't believe you got that in Primark, I never find anything"! I was wayyy too spoilt before! However I've picked up a few nice bits recently which Im sure once I return from my hols I'll be showing off!

  8. I love the super-blonde ends of your hair. I've recently given up the ombre and gone back to blonde highlights. It feels great!

    I know what you mean about Primarks in London. The returns queue on Oxford Street was about 40 people long the other day. Not cool!

  53. You gotta go to the weird obscure Primarks in the middle of a weekday, like Wood Green or Ealing Broadway. I've been to both of them during a weekday afternoon and they were super quiet! Oxford Street Primark has given me PTSD.
