New hair!

From this:

To this:

I love it! I feel so much more "me" with shorter hair. I have been going on and on about getting my hair cut into a bob for over a year now, and I am so pleased I finally took the plunge. The ends were so tatty and disgusting that I needed at least six inches chopped off anyway, and I tended to wear it up so long hair was wasted on me!

Please excuse horrible "after" picture - my laptop webcam is terrible at taking photos in anything other than natural light!

I went to the charity shop and I bought...

The floral set includes six cups, six saucers and six side plates (which I like to call "cake plates") and was an unbelievable £2.25, whilst the Professor Umbridge-style cat cup and saucer set was £1.25. I saw them up in a branch of Acorns in Pershore this morning and just couldn't resist! My ultimate goal in life is to have a massive dresser/cupboard full of mismatched vintage cups and saucers, so this haul definitely helps...

Photos taken with our new camera - you can see that I need a lot of practise!

NOTD: Models Own Juicy Jules

Three coats, plus Seche Vite. Doesn't photograph at all well with my husband's phone camera! It's lovely in real life and applied beautifully, but I think it would really pop over a dark navy blue or black shade. Will try this in the next couple of days, I think.

New toy - Nikon D5000 DSLR camera

Bought a new camera on Saturday - expect many posts filled with bad pictures as I try to get to grips with it! It's the Nikon D5000, and it came with two lenses.
Picture taken from Amazon, but I actually bought it from Jessops. I say I, it was a joint purchase with my husband and we are planning on using it on our (delayed) honeymoon in the summer.

Yet another Topshop wishlist...

I went to the shops and I bought...

Didn't get the zebra blouse as it was too short for me :( I know it's a cropped style, but it just looked incredibly unflattering on. I was very disappointed as the print is beautiful, until I found the bird print blouse in New Look, which is GORGEOUS in real life. Mine actually has more birds on it, but I couldn't find an exact picture online. The ring and leggings are from Topshop, the telephone necklace is from Accessorize, the pussy bow blouse is from New Look and the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub (wow, that's a mouthful) is from Boots. I tried a sample of the scrub last year and liked it, but only just got round to buying it!

On Saturday I am going to buy...

It's H! by Henry Holland for Debenhams, and is £25.

I just LOVE it! The Peter Pan collar, the waist tie, the perfect shade of yellow, the ZEBRAS!
