Although it seems like looooads it actually looked quite natural, and I really liked it. Then for my outfit I wore a black and blue dress optical illusion dress from Republic (via eBay!) with black tights, plain black suede heels and some leaf earrings!

What's your favourite outfit to wear out?

rainy day hair

This is the road next to mine today:

Yes, that is 18 inches of rain your seeing, in one day. So today for work I didnt want to do anything too special with my hair as I knew that I was going to have a huge afro by the end of the day anywhere, so I did the unthinkable...I went au natural. 

So in this picture I have done nothing to my hair heat wise, it's just in a half pony. Product wise, I used the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle (which I seriously love!) the night before to give it a sheen, and make it slightly less tanglely and then that was it! I think it looks slightly 'bedhead chic' and it certainly didnt become too frizzy, which was perfect! 

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle is a intensive hair treatment described on the Boots website as
"Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor is a deep conditioning treatment for dry and damaged hair. 3 Minute Miracle leaves hair looking and feeling healthy and shiny in one treatment."

I bought the product after my friend told me how much she loved it, and I was initially a little skeptical, but even after using it once I could tell there was a massive difference in my hair. I've found the best results have come where I've put it through my hair, especially concentrating on the roots, and then putting my hair in a shower cap and leaving it for a good half hour while I have a bath, it feels seriously silky afterwards, and it's only £4.99! Amazing, huh?!

What do you do with your hair in the rain? Any fool proof styles?

whats in my bag

I am seriously the nosiest person I know, which is why I love whats in my bag posts. I saw my first ever what's in my bag video about 3 years ago when lollipop26 did hers and I became obsessed, Whats in my bag videos and room tours are just the best thing in the world. I think you can tell alot about a person from what they carry round, so to help you get to know me here is what I carry round in my bag!

This is my little old bag. I would love to say it's a Mulberry Alexa's not. It's a faux Alexa that I bought on ebay about a year and a half ago. It's sturdy, pretty and really useful! It seriously fits SO much inside of it. Im the sort of person who will put something in my bag and then..that's it. It will never ever come out again, so having a large 'holding area' in my bag is essential. As you can see it's a tan faux leather with gold hardware and it's just amazing and it was only like £15-18? Amazing, huh?

And inside it is:

From L-R: Beaded headband from acessorise (i wore it on a night out and got bored of it by 10!)
new look earrings & hair slide. earrings £1! can you believe!
sure deodorant
hairband (that actually belongs to my sister....)
sunglasses - £2.99 from new look.
primark stripy makeup case.
Vintage Classics purse. I've had this for so long, but i absolutely love it.
Cath kidston makeup case 
Which contains:

Boujouris 123 Perfect Foundation
Benefit Erase Paste
Nars Multiple in Orgasm
Rimmel Scandeleyes Mascara

So that's what's in my bag! Seriously boring, but it inspired me to clean my bag out so..all is well that ends well!

What's in your bag?

Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, dedicated to make up, fashion and everything in between. I'm Katie & I'm 18. I spend loads of money on clothes, and then complain loads that I have no money. I own about 327234 crochet tops and never wear any of them, have an unhealthy relationship with mascara and change a million times before settling on the outfit I put on in the first place. I am a right old poser, and pout too much. I'm really excited to start blogging, I've been reading these blogs for SO long and have finally plucked up the courage to start my own. Come back soon! x
