Outfit of the Day – Galaxy Print Jacket

IMAG0271Featuring:

  • Galaxy Print Windbreaker Jacket – Pop Sick Vintage (Asos Marketplace Boutique)
  • Bobble Hat – Lazy Oaf
  • Caterpillar Boots – ASOS
  • Red lipstick- ‘Ruby Woo’ by MAC

My jacket game feels very strong!  What an amazing print 😀 – this Pop Sick Vintage windbreaker arrived in the post yesterday and I couldn’t be happier with it.  There are loads of fun hidden pockets and compartments and it’s just the right amount of over-sized.   It’s also lined so its cosy for a windbreaker, which is great for Newcastle’s blustery weather.

I hate the winter, and around this time of year I would usually say that I can’t wait to put my coats and jackets in to hibernation and break out the skimpy summer clothes..but a jacket like this changes that.  I feel so cheerful wearing it!

GLITTER HAIR – Hair inspo SS15

GLITTER ON EVERYTHING.  SPARKLY DISCO BBZ!!!

I’ve been noticing this trend emerging for a while now in editorial shoots & on the catwalk – but was surprised by how much imagery I found when I actually researched it. Glitter in general has been having a massive beauty moment – check out my glitter lips and eyebrows from 2014:

Here’s some glittery sparkle hair inspiration photos I’ve found:

How not to do it..

tumblr_ni0tiipNmQ1s50b0ho1_500Looks like a homemade ceramic Christmas decoration!?!

I intend on trying this out myself ASAP.  I’m thinking glitter hair spray from Claire’s Accessories will work nicely.  Literally the same stuff I used when I was going to the Primary School Disco haha. Nostalgia! I’d probably try some standard hair gel + craft shop glitter for the more slicked back styles & glitter roots.  If it works out well I’ll post it up ;).
