Valentine Kitty Nails ♥

Although I really like all the love heart and kisses nail art I've seen so far this month, I decided to do something a bit different with my nails for Valentines. Not only do these kitty Valentine's nails look super cute, it also was the perfect opportunity to finally use my Christmas fimo slices. It's also really easy and quick to do, honest!

How to: 
♦ Take white and pink polishes and paint your nails, alternating the colours
♦ Use a dotting tool to create polka dots on the white nails 
♦ Taking a white striper, carefully create a heart on your pink nails. Use a dotting tool make four dots above them 
♦ Paint a French tip on your thumbs, and carefully add the fimo while wet 
♦ Finish with a topcoat and it's done! 

It's a little bit different, but I like it. Whether you're loved up or a single pringle, I think this design is a really cute look for Valentines Day, or any time of the year! What do you think?

Bringing back the Scrunchie!

If you were even to mention the long forgotten scrunchie a year ago, it's safe to say you'd be given some pretty severe looks of disgust. However, with the return of 90's fashion, you can be sure that the old school hair accessory is about to make it's own comeback. 
So, how exactly do you wear it this time around? This is how I'm going to rock mine...

The Pony 

In my opinion, the side ponytail is never gonna look good again. Side braid, yes, but I'm not for the full on Lady Sovereign look. So this time, I'm wearing it high. I'm not normally a fan of ponies, but I'm liking this; it keeps long hair out of the way and looks pretty cute. Instead of keeping it smooth, I'm channelling my '90's tween' and keeping my hair poofy and textured.

The Bun

The bun is everyone's go-to hair style, and it's easy to add a scrunchie to this look. Just create a coiled bun on the top of your head, or if you prefer, to the side and wrap it round. Simple and stylish.

The Minnie Mouse

The Minnie Mouse look, or double bun, is also a fun way to style up your scrunchie. This hairstyle just screams 90's too me; it's too cute for words. Easily done - pretty much the same as the basic bun, but there's two of 'em. Will you guys be trying this out?

Who knows what else will come back? Remember those cute sparkly butterfly clips? I'm pretty sure I still have some lying around, I might find myself digging them out soon enough ...

Remember, fashion fades, but style is eternal.

Happy 1st Birthday

So today marks a momentous occasion - my blog's first birthday! 

I've been blogging since 2009 on my tumblr blog but decided to switch platforms exactly a year ago today. Looking through my archive, it's shocking how bad my photography was, and embarrassing that I didn't realise you could make the photos bigger until about August. Cringe. 

I wasn't sure how to 'celebrate' my blogiversary, but I thought is this is primarily a fashion blog, I could do an assortment of my favourite OOTD's of the year. So here they are, hope you like...
