OUTFIT: CLASHY







Plaid shirt - Vintage (Depop)
Camo jacket - Vintage (Depop)

Some people would cringe at the thought of matching a pink and yellow plaid shirt with a camo jacket. I say why the f*ck not?! I am all about mixing clashy prints and patterns. I love the way that two patterns can offset each other to create a really unique look!

Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to throw any old crazy patterns together. But if you're slightly more reserved on the kooky clothing front, here is my worldly advice:

1. Mix a big pattern with a small pattern. Two big patterns together and you run the risk of looking like a 90's, children's TV presenter. No thanks.

2. Keep to a consistent colour palette if you don't want to look too 'out there'. I'm thinking monochrome florals with some black and white stripes for chic workwear vibes.

3. Florals on florals have a YES from me!  Florals for spring are so overdone, but florals on florals? New territory to explore. 

4. Mix vintage pieces for a retro or grunge-y vibe - à la me!

SPRING WISHLIST


I constantly have a string of pages open in the browser on my phone so that I can lust over all the clothes that I want whenever I have a spare five minutes. I obsessively add up the prices and (nearly) cry when I have to face the fact that I will probably only be able to buy one or two things this month. What's the deal with being an adult? Do I HAVE to pay the rent this month, Mr Landlord? And why should I pay for water when 71% of the Earth is covered in it? And who knew that council tax was a thing? Why do some people have outie belly buttons? Why didn't Tarzan have a beard? These are all important questions.

REVIEW: IRRESISTIBLE ME DIAMOND HAIR STYLER



Hi guys! Something a bit different for you here. I have had the same hair straighteners for years, and those ones were kindly donated to me by my boyfriend's mum when my previous straighteners broke and I couldn't afford to buy any new ones! So when Irresistible Me contacted me to ask if I would like to try out their Diamond Hair Styler, of course I said yes! And I just want to say that this review is my honest opinion, I would not lie to you guys!

I will be completely honest, I hadn't heard of this brand before as I believe they are an American brand, but I have to say, I am impressed! The straighteners arrived very quickly and came in a super sleek box. I had to wait a few days to use them as I had to go out and buy a travel adapter for the plug! But it was worth the wait. These are 100% the best straighteners I have ever used, and this is coming from someone who steals her mum's GHDs at every opportunity. 

As you can see from the before and I after photos above, my unstraightened hair is an utter disaster! It's crazy frizzy and has bizarre layers sticking out all over the place (never go to Supercuts!) but these straighteners were able to tame my locks with one swoop. And they make my hair SO shiny! It's not just the flash from my camera, they really do make my hair that sleek, even on a low setting! You can select your temperature to anything up to 230C, and they literally heat up in like 10 seconds which is amazing when I'm in a rush to get ready for work in the morning. And they automatically turn off after 30 minutes which is great because I am SO forgetful and I always panic that I've left things turned on!

Overall, I am SO glad Irresistible Me got in touch with me about this product. If you're looking for a super high quality straightener for a lower cost than other high-end brands, check out their website. I have literally recommended these straighteners to everyone I know. It's not very often that I gush over things like this but trust me, if you buy these, you will NOT be disappointed!
