A work outfit, take II!

Another work outfit, that was also comfy enough for the long dog walk in the evening with the pooch :)

My sunglasses are just cheap ones from Ebay, I felt kind of rock chicky today hence the ridiculous pout in this photo. I won't do it again!

My adorable dress is from ASOS, it isn't available anymore sadly. They also had it in acid wash and I wish I had managed to get it! The red vest top is a cheap one from Tesco last summer, I could probably have done with the next size up in the dress for my boobs, which is an odd thing to say as I'm not particularly endowed, so I always wear it with a vest top underneath and the top buttons undone.

I wore it with my ASOS curve leggings in tartan check £18. I bought these when they were on sale. Super soft material and very comfy. And as ever, my Demonia sneakers. Hey, I gotta be comfy at work and for walking the dog!

My amazing Skid Row necklace was a custom commission I got from Sugar & Vice, they did such an awesome job, I love it to bits. No full outfit as I was on my own this morning when I got ready :)

Much love,

Obviously a work outfit.

So this is an outfit I wore to work the other day. My work outfits are really not standard work outfits because I work for my family, so I wear whatever I like basically. Our office can get really stuffy, so I just want to be cool sat at my desk!

My face pre sunglasses, it was so sunny!

Eyemakeup is by Sugarpill and my amaaazing Kitten name necklace is from Sugar and Vice. It is the 'Name Necklace' with horror font, a silver chain, with red mirror acrylic and I got it supersized!

I took this to try and show the awesome mirrored acrylic in my necklace, it is so reflective and amazing. When I wear it in the car and it is sunny I can see my name reflected on the roof of my car hehe

My skirt is from last year from New Look. I have it in red (worn here), orange and black. It isn't available this year, but they have released a slightly modified it with a thicker waist band as the 'Inspire Shirred Waist Maxi Skirt' available in black, pink and blue. I kinda want the pink! I haven't had a pedicure in ages and I hate my feet so shoes it is in this heat still, trusty Demonia Deviant 06 Black low top lace up side zip pinstripe sneakers. What a mouthful!

My top is one of my absolute favourites, one from New Look's Halloween range last year. The font is glow in the dark! It's super comfy and I love it to bits.

A close up of my necklace and also my plugs. Gorgeous black Gorilla Glass super spirals from Body Art Forms. These are heavy but so comfy, I love wearing glass. I have not a clue where I got my sunglasses from. I lost my cute pair and have resorted to these till I find others I can tolerate on my face.

It's really hot in England right now and I am sulking because I'm skint and I want all the pretty dresses from ASOS Curve.

Much love,

Father's Day!

Sunday was Father's Day in England, so it meant a family BBQ to celebrate the day with my love and his children, and my Dad too :)

This is what I got for my Dad. Custom Uranium and Plutonium element cufflinks from Sugar & Vice. He works in the power industry so he enjoyed these!

My outfit :) Stu took the first one but I think the hemline is more visible in the second one. Isn't it cute?

The dress is from New Look, my Mum found it in store on sale and treated me to it :) thanks Mum! I wouldn't normally go for a pink dress, but I liked the lace detailing and the hem is so cute.

I usually live in plain black leggings but I'm trying to break that habit, so cute new leggings! These are from ASOS. The material they are made of is so soft, I love them and will be keeping an eye out for more. My sandals are from Evans last year, it is so hard to get a size 10! The are wedge heels which I find much more comfortable.

To finish the outfit off I wore one of my favourite necklaces, the Sugar & Vice Swimming Mermaid necklace £20, and my black Gorilla Glass super spirals.

Much love

Tie Dye Madness

So after I recently tie dyed an older dress of mine, I couldn't resist doing it again, to the same style dress but in a different colour! It's a dress from New Look from last year, it is no longer available so unfortunately I can't buy more of them.

This is how my dress started out, plain green all over. After tie dying, this is what it looks like!

So much more fun right?! When I tie dye I make sure to put twists and knots in basically all of the fabric for optimal patterns.

 The full dress, please excuse my floor, we are in the midst of getting new windows and knocking down an old pond and the house is... interesting right now! I am really pleased with how it turned out :)

 I tried to explain how the hem worked on the other blog, but this time I managed to get a photo, it's the same length front and back, I'm just leaning awkwardly to take the photo here.

 I haven't dyed my hair recently as I am considering a return to a natural colour, so it's very faded and pastel right now. My eye makeup is, as ever, by Sugarpill. Their makeup is cruelty free and has amazing staying power, I can't recommend it enough.

A close up of the necklace, it's from Sugar & Vice and is their Mandala necklace. It's laser cut wood and the detail is incredible.

Isn't it gorgeous? I'm also wearing some of my favourite hoops, these turquoise hoops from Body Art Forms. These are so comfy, they are quite heavy but I don't really notice I'm even wearing them!

So yes, more tie dying adventutes, I'm kind of addicted.

Much love,

Pout at the devil!

Last night Stu and I headed out to see Pout at the devil and Wicked Faith play at Yardbirds. It was an awesome fun night, Wicked Faith were great, female singer and female bass player caught my attention straight away, and they were from Norwich to boot, I lived there for 3 years and have a total soft spot for it. I bought their album so I can listen to them again. Pout at the devil were amazing fun, all glam rock and 80's rock, think Bon Jovi, Poison, Motley Crue, my perfect sort of cover band! I wanted a cute outfit, something I could dance in. So my favourite dress it was!

Thank you Stu for the photo

My adorable sunflower dress is from ASOS but has already sold out, it's shorter than I would usually wear, but it makes me feel cute and confident so it doesn't bother me. If you aren't plus sized they do still have the straight sized versions of this available. I teamed it up with some leggings and my trusty Demonia Disorder 301 boots.

I wore my Bete Noire Jewellery You're so cool necklace to finish the look off. I adore this necklace, but I have to wear a necklace extender with it otherwise I can't do it up, Bete Noire necklace chains are short to pre-warn, but the jewellery is totally worth it!

I danced my ass off all night and my hair was amazingly big, good times!

Much love,

I love a surprise!

I got some extra pennies recently and decided that I would treat myself to something from Sugar & Vice. They are one of my very favourite companies, but they have SO many awesome goodies I just couldn't decide what to order. Thankfully for me, they offer Lucky Dips! I went for the Lucky Dip 30, you spend £30, and get £50 of Sugar & Vice goodies. There are options for cute, creepy, or 'surprise me!', and you can choose whether or not you have pierced ears or not. I went for 'surprise me!' and I always mark that I don't have pierced ears, while I do actually have pierced ears, I have my first piercing stretched, and in the other 2 piercings in each lobe I only wear silver hoops, so as awesome as Sugar & Vice's earrings are, they just aren't for me.

I am SO thrilled with what I got! They come in a gorgeous matte black gift box, you can actually buy these gift boxes from the website in small, medium and large sizes, starting at £1.50. It's a lovely touch and they are such high quality.

This is a shot of all the awesomeness that I got in my lucky dip, with Sugar & Vice you always get sweeties in your order, Stu loves this part in particular because it usually means a Moaom and he loves them! I also got a cute heart lolipop :) it's a touch that always makes me smile when I get a parcel from them.

First up, this amaaaazing Multi Alien Necklace. It's part of Sugar & Vice's new 'The Girl From Another World' collection, so much awesome! This is a necklace I had been drooling over and was so pleased to happen to get! It is made of a stunning pearlescent acrylic, I wish I could get a photo of it that did it justice.

Next up the adorable Mended Heart Necklace, this is one I cooed over at Halloween, I got it in an ace Zombie green! It's also available in red, but I love that green is an option. So much fun!

Next, the incredibly detailed Mandala Necklace. Just wow. The level of detail in this wooden necklace is just stunning, it really shows the talent that Sugar & Vice have. This isn't one I would necessarily have picked for myself, but I think for the summer it will be my first choice with pretty maxi dresses! It's so unusual and pretty.

And finally, a cute Diamond Gem Clip. This is part of Sugar & Vice's collaboration with Janine Basil, a super talented hair accessories creator. Now the thing I love most about this is, it is so light weight. Because of my chronic pain condition, I have to be incredibly careful with what I wear in my hair, or what style I wear it in, any pressure of weight can exacerbate it and that's the last thing I want! This however, is so light I'm pretty sure I'll be able to wear it for a full day. I own another of Janine's hair accessories and the quality is awesome, she hand makes everything and I can't speak highly enough of her. This little pink diamond will add a cute flash of colour to my 'do!

I am so pleased with the selection I got, I love the sense of surprise with ordering a lucky dip, and getting things I wouldn't necessarily have picked for myself, plus the added bonus of getting more for my buck.

This is not a sponsored post, everything here I bought with my own pennies!

Much love,
