Outfit of the Day and New Highlighted Hair!

Hey guys,

I thought I would do a two in one blog post today because I wanted to talk about my new highlighted hair but didn't think that would be very long so I've thrown in an 'outfit of the day' post as well.  Double whammy!

I'll start with my outfit as this is actually an outfit I wore on Sunday.  Sunday I went with my friend along the King's Road in Chelsea to do some shopping and then watch a movie at the cinema.  I didn't end up buying much as we didn't shop for long because we also wanted to catch up over coffee before seeing the film.  The film we saw was The Heat starring Sandra Bullock and is so so funny you have to see it!!

We did go into Zara on Duke of York Square which is my favourite Zara ever!  Zara is one of my favourite shops anyway because I think it has so many different types of clothes (and furniture now!) to suit everyone.  You've got your smart clothes, work clothes, glam going out clothes, gym clothes, laid back casual clothes etc etc.  I did see some neon yellow faded skinny jeans which I may go back and purchase.  They also had some neon vest tops which look great with a tan or just to throw on with a pair of jeans and blazer to jazz up a plain look.

Anyway, onto the outfit.  The blazer I'm wearing is from Tesco.  I actually purchased this on eBay as I was looking for one of the 'fantasy blazers' from Zara and I saw this.  I think it was only £25 or something originally and I paid £15 for it on eBay.  It was brand new.  It's a lovely bright blue and just makes such a difference to a boring outfit.  The shirt that I have is just a plain cream one from New Look.  It drapes down slightly longer at the back. This is just handy to go with any kind of look where you need a plainer top.  I also like to tuck it into floral skirts.  The jeans are from River Island.  They have that waxy kind of finish and are super skinny.  I love them because they make your legs look thinner and longer and pull everything in. They just make me feel kinda sexy when I'm wearing them haha.  And then to complete the look I wanted a more casual feel as it was just a Sunday shop and cinema trip so I went for wedged trainers.  This way I still had a bit of height. These I got from Dorothy Perkins.  I think they were £40 but I got them in the sale for £20 and they had them in beige too.

Then last night I had my hair done.  I get bored with my hair so quickly and the colour had really faded so rather than go dark again I thought I would go a little lighter and have a few highlights pulled through.  As it is summer now I just thought this was rather apt and then I will probably go darker again in winter.

I do like it but where I had a slightly red colour on before it hasn't completed washed out and so I have been left with a reddy colour with golden highlights.  I'm gonna give it a week to get used to it.  I don't hate it but it's not exactly how I wanted it.  Fortunately for me my sister is a hairdresser so I can pretty much get my hair done whenever and I only have to treat her to take-away and she's happy!

Well that's enough from me today.  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Be sure to check out my latest video: and follow me on Instagram: fash_swag24 and Twitter: wonky_lauren.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
