Hot Stuff

Jacket - My Mothers, Vest - H&M, Skirt - H&M, Bracelet - Topshop, Pearls - Vintage, Watch - Vintage

It was absolutely baking today! I had a lovely time sitting on my balcony and reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire again.
The jacket I'm wearing was hand made by my mother about 20 years ago or so and I love it!
I have very good news too..... I won the LFW competition :D I'm so so happy. I can't believe Gem Fatale and Me & Zena picked me!
So I've won: a Me & Zena Television necklace, Lazy Oaf Mouse Tee, Lime Crime lipstick in Retrofuturist, 10 Beauty UK Salon Professional Nail Polishes of my choice, and my picture will go on Gems blog!
I've never won anything like this before so I'm extremely happy right now.
I'll do a post when I receive my prizes, well done to everyone who entered your outfits were all amazing!

Indian Summer

Blouse - Asos, Skirt - H&M, Bracelets - Topshop, Watch - Vintage

Yesterday it was my sisters birthday so we all went round to her house and watched Attack The Block with some home cooked food :)
But today I'm just doing some errands, trolling on Tumblr, and lazying about.
I'm really excited for next week at the moment! It's going to be an Indian Summer in England :D
So I'm going to try and even up my tan, then since my hair is starting to grow back I'm going to try and lighten the side the natural way. By using LEMONS! It'll probably be difficult and long because I'll have to apply it and be in the sun all day. But I always try to be as natural as possible with my hair, it might not even work but I've got a lot of time on my hands to try it.

LFW Competition

Blouse - Select, Shorts - Topshop, Bracelets - Topshop, Watch - Vintage, Earrings - Primark, Blue Nail Varnish - Missguided, Pink Nail Varnish - MUA

Yesterday I entered the London Fashion Week competition being held by Gem Fatale and Me & Zena. All you had to do to enter was dress up as stylish as possible and send in a picture :D Gem even gave us a hit for extra brownie points to use a 'Tuesday Tip' from her blog. So I decided to do glitter nails, all you have to do is paint your nails and before they dry sprinkle some glitter on them! I love them!
I also put studs on my shorts (trying to add the creativity factor) It wasn't too difficult or expensive, I just found the cheapest pyramid studs on Ebay and put them on.
 The winner will win a top from Lazy Oaf, 10 nail polish's from Beauty UK, a Me & Zena television necklace and a Lime Crime Lipstick. Then 5 runners up will win 2 Beauty UK nail polish's of their choice.
There are some great prizes and I just hope I do well! *fingers crossed* 
The competition is fierce, check out the Me & Zena Facebook and take a look at the other outfits.

Shaved Head

I shaved the side of my head tonight and I was in so much shock afterwards that I couldn't do the other side! It feels nice when I touch it though, it's like a stubbly beard....but on my head.
What do you think of it? Mistake?
I'm going to try and pluck up the courage to make it even tomorrow....

Idea Time

Blouse - Select, Skirt - Select, Socks - Peacocks, Bracelet - Topshop, Watch - Vintage, Dr Martens

I went Ebay crazy this week and put lots of of my clothes up so I could clear out my wardrobe to make way for my Autumn/Winter clothes. I managed to sell two Leather skirts, some jeans, and a blazer! But I've still got a nice cropped leather jacket and a brand new fringed crop top for sale, here's the link if you want a look http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/kareenie25
But besides that, I'm trying to think of some business ideas so I don't have to go back to working in retail. I may start selling some of my photographs, or possibly some handmade jewellery. I've been making a lemon grass salt scrub for myself for a while now and it's really good, so maybe I could make a business out of that!

Crochet Dress, Knee High Socks - Peacocks, Dr Martens, Bag - ASOS, Fur Coat - ASOS, Bracelet - Topshop, Belt - Vintage, Watch - Vintage.

I know I've disappeared for a while, but it was so I could take a little break from blogging.
But now I'm back! I've forgotten how fun writing was! So I'm happy to be doing it again :)
This definitely my best buy from my holiday this summer, a crochet white mini dress from a little boutique in Barbados. They only had one in stock in each size so I was very lucky! It has a bit of a 60's feel to it which I love. Since it's getting colder now I'll have to team it with tights (I don't want to freeze). I'll try and find myself some burgundy tights. Burgundy is definitely my favourite colour for Autumn/Winter. Here are some of my favourite Burgundy picks:

Burgundy Chiffon Shirt - Topshop, Hooded Faux Fur Coat - Topshop, Skinny Utilty Jeans - Topshop, Dr MartensShoe Boots - Missguided, Burgundy Leather Satchel Bag - Miss Selfridge, Feather Earrings - Oasis, Lipstick - Topshop, Rimmel Nail Varnish.
