#WEEKDAYWISHLIST 26

ASOS CURVE / SIMPLY BE / BOOHOO CURVE
Anyone else majorly chuffed that the temperature has dropped and you can get all the snug clothes on??

I feel like I need a bit of a wardrobe update and I have been drooling over the above; bardot jumpsuit, PJ shirt, ALL THE BOOTS, coated jeans, fur hooded parkas and *those* ASOS Valentino inspired flats.. that need to be mine.

The Boohoo Fur Hooded Parka I stumbled upon and I absolutely LOVE the pop of hot pink so I am going to have to order this and see how it looks on. Having big boobs means that fur coats are not the most ideal on me (sobs) so this caters to my furry love without making me look like a bear. Or at least I hope it will.

I think the coated leather-ish jeans from Simply Be paired with the white cross over blouse and the studded flats will make the most amazing day to drinks outfit!

What's on your shopping lists??

Oh.. and how adorbs are the cactus PJs? ASOS you are literally climbing into my mind, seeing what I like and making it a reality. I LOVE YOU.

HOORAY FOR EBAY

Image c/o: http://www.styleandgrace.eu/detox-your-wardrobe-too/
Please note, this is not a sponsored post - I have just discovered eBay in a BIG way and want to proclaim my love for the site!!

My usual go-to site for random bits and bobs has usually been Amazon and to a certain extent I do go back there if I can't find what I am looking for on eBay but I have absolutely rinsed eBay in the last couple of months for literally anything and everything!

From hen do supplies to razor heads, phone covers to shoes I have always been super impressed with the service and will long continue to shop on site.

What has been your best eBay purchase???

FIRST HOME GOALS

Sooooo my next goal is a pretty big and expensive one but one that will be the most amazing adventure!

I've decided to finally face facts that I am an adult and it would be very sensible to look into buying a house. I should probably stress at this point I have no savings nor really much idea about mortgages but I am committed to learning and getting my sh!t in order and in the next couple of years getting some bricks and mortar that I can call my own.

Naturally one of the most fun parts about any new property whether it be your own or rented is planning the decor which is just what I have done! I am currently obsessing over cactus and palm prints so this will feature in my new pad once I get there!!

Do any of you have any house buying tips for me?

THE HUT GROUP X HEY LITTLE CUPCAKE

THE HUT
When I get invited to events where there is cake the likelihood of my attendance does increase somewhat, but make that cake be from Hey Little Cupcake and we have a dead cert...

Last week The Hut invited me to decorate cupcakes at Hey Little Cupcake's Cake Emporium in Spinningfields along with some other lovely bloggers from the North West.

I have frequented Hey Little Cupcake previously so I was au fait with their amazing selection, godamn adorable cafe area decked out in pretty pink gingham and a cake scented ambiance that makes you just want to sit and inhale deeply for as long as possible.

We mastered the art of sugar rose making, piping and filling cupcakes with a delicious filling. I apparently unearthed a talent for making sugar roses and let me tell you it is the most satisfying process EVER.

I have mentioned to all my gal pals how fun this class was and I will 100% be back to do it again as it is so so fun!!!

I was also delighted to win the cake decorating challenge, I'm often very lucky but never usually win anything that requires any skill being displayed.. !

Thank you so much to The Hut and Hey Little Cupcake I had the most lovely time!!!

VOGUE SALON SEASON WITH UMBERTO GIANNINI


It's Vogue's Salon Season in collaboration with Kerastase from 28th September to 27th October and I attended the launch night in Manchester at Umberto Giannini in Harvey Nichols!

Kerastase's concept of their new fusio-dose treatment is that there are 4 key hair issues that can be addressed with one of their hair treatments.

I got to try one of the treatments on the night and holy sh!t. This stuff is amazing.

During the Vogue Salon Season you can book in for a Blow Dry and receive the fusio-dose treatment for free as a lovely added bonus.

I opted for the 'light fantastic' treatment as my hair is very coloured, it can sometimes feel a little dry and dull if I don't give it the TLC it needs. My Stylist, Ellie, shampooed my hair then sprayed the treatment through to ensure an even distribution and then set about creating the wave!

The treatment can stay active for 6 washes after it has been put in so I have enjoyed the after effects long after and I can truly say I was wowed by this. I thought being the colour I am meant I would have to compromise on having shiny hair and that just is not the case. The treatment has injected some life and shine into my locks and I so enjoyed having my hair done by Ellie. I had complete hair envy over her copper bob and I would urge you to get booked in with her as you are in safe hands!

Excitingly, Umberto Giannini will be featured in the October issue of Vogue which I can't wait to see and read!

So. If you need your hair doing any time in the next month (by 27th October) book in at Harvey Nichols and claim your treatment, I am positive you will love it!
