I got my hair cut a few days ago and I don’t like it but more on that in a little bit…! Here I am wearing a black skater dress from Zalando, a company I’ve heard about through blogs. I’ve never bought anything from Zalando because I wasn’t sure whether sizes come up big like M&S or small like Topshop. I had a browse through their website and found a few lovely summery things from the clothing range but in the end, I chose a black jersey skater dress (can never have too many black dresses, especially if it’s a skater style) and the fit is perfect but I suppose it all depends on where your garment comes from as they stock all types of fashionable brands. Unlike my black outfit from last week, this stylish dress would make it appropriate for work or interviews. It’s nice to have reliable outfits like this in your wardrobe!

In my new skater dress, I wandered my way in to town in time for my hair appointment. Bearing in mind I don’t like going to hairdressers and rarely get my hair cut (only timmed on special occassion!). Unfortunately, I absolutely hate my new hair so I hope you don’t mind but you will be seeing it in a top knot for the next few months, at least! I got about 5inches cut off – it seemed like a good idea at first and as it appeared to be a pretty standard hair cut, I thought to myself what could possibly go wrong! This naive thought soon turned in to what the hell was I thinking?! It has lost length, style and the general girly look, plus it is now more maintenance than when it was long! The only thing that it has gained is volume. Most definitely not in an full, and awesomely bouncy dreaminess like it is in hair adverts, but in a frustratingly frizzy, sticky-outy way; basically like a longer version of Gwendoline from Wallace And Gromit. I don’t know what the stylist did to my hair but it is now thicker than it’s ever been, putting it in a pony tail makes me feel like an actual pony. Anyway, after a google search on how to rescue my hair or disguise it in a style I don’t hate, I’ve decided to see if my Enrapture Encode Totem Styler (<< on sale at Argos at the moment) can transform it in the style of Caroline Flack as I now have shoulder length hair with blunt ends that seems to have a life of it’s own!

Spending the weekend going “ARGH!” in front of the mirror whilst I sort my barnet out, reminding myself that it’s only hair and it will eventually grow, I did receive some exciting news! I’m not sure if I am allowed to say it yet so I can’t reveal too much until I get the go ahead! I’ll be doing some work with a very exciting client this Summer so I am in the preparation and research stage of the project. What I’d love to know from you all is what fashion/style advice or beauty tips you want to ask bloggers and I hope to be able to work around your questions! I want to answer your Spring/Summer fashion/beauty questions from a blogger’s point of view (as opposed to a magazine) so feel free to hit me up with some questions either in the comment box below, Twitter or my email!

    This might sound a bit random but I'd love some tips on wearing makeup with glasses. After wearing contact lenses for 7 years and switching back to glasses in November, I find it tricky to know what products to wear. Especially because my high prescription lenses shrink my eyes! So any thoughts/tips you have as a fellow glasses wearer would be much appreciated!

    This dress is such a beautiful shape 🙂 I'm so sad your bag is sold out though! It's gorgeous :'( x

    Oh no, you still look really pretty with your hair up 🙂 and how cute is that little bag?! X

    Sorry to hear about your bad haircut! That's part of the reason why I learned to cut my hair myself (I used to give myself terrible haircuts when I first started haha), so at least I'm the only one to blame if things go wrong 😛 I hope you'll like it when it starts growing out though!

    As for Spring/Summer fashion questions, I've always wanted a guideline on wearing brights, like a bright skirt, shoes, accessories, or a bright outfit in general, without looking too "out there". Thanks for letting us have a chance to ask 🙂

    Oh no! Bad hair cuts are the absolutely worst, I've had my fair share and they generally occur when I decide to go for the chop. But it's never as bad as you think 🙂

    I love this dress, it's the perfect LBD and your mustache ring is adorable!

    Awww hair wise I feel for you and can really relate. I hate going to the hairdressers because I feel like they never listen to you and never have the same vision as you! Means I haven't gone for about 2 years now which is terrible! x x

    I love skater dresses they fit my figure so well – gives me shape where I need it haha! I absolutely LOVE that bag though I was so gutted to see it was sold out when I scrolled down to find where you got it from 🙁

    I'm sorry to hear about your hair – I find that sometimes hairdressers either cut not enough or too much and I'm rarely satisfied. I've finally found a hairdressers that does exactly what I want though after many rubbish cuts I found her! x

    You can't go wrong with an LBD! I love Zalando, they really do have awesome customer service. Your triangle ring is really pretty and so is that lovely scarf!
