August Round-Up

August Round Up

‘Send nudes’ means nude nails, right? | New finger bling from the babes at Gemporia* | Garden chills | Boohoo PJs making me want to stay in bed even more than I already do | Feeling very hip hop hunny in white and gold | New hair! (Don’t get excited) | Choker and filter love | Calm down, it’s just a hair product | Legs, tea, books – aka the best things in life

HI GUYS. Bloody hell, another month gone then? Apart from the fact this means we’re all just one step closer to old age and our eventual demise, I’ve really enjoyed the blink-and-you-missed-it month that was August. I had a fun weekend in Manchester for Lauren’s birthday, went to V Festival for the day with work and spent the time in between being obsessed with Celeb Big Brother (yep, as high brow as ever).

I also had a really lovely day at the start of the month that started with a blogger breakfast with one of my favourite brands, Johnny Loves Rosie. I’ve got a full post on the event coming soon, but it was such a nice morning learning about the brand and hanging with some of my fave Birmingham bloggers. I also got to take away that beaut choker you can see in the above photo, which has hardly left my neck since. Oh, and there were croissants involved. Nuff said.

Later that day I mooched over to Solihull where I went and CUT OFF ALL MY HAIR. Kind of. As you probably know, I’ve had extensions for years and I finally decided to take a break from them and go au natural. I had my natural hair cut into a long bob and toned the most gorgeous grey (yes that is a #nofilter snap up there). It was lovely, but after a couple of weeks I couldn’t handle all of the hair envy I was feeling and so I do now have my weave back. But anywho, at least I get to say I switched up my look for a grand total of 3 weeks – I know, call me Kylie Jenner.

So that was my month, but what did you get up to in August? Let me know in the comments! And as always, photos are taken from my Instagram @Vanity__Claire.

    August did fly by pretty quickly, didn’t it?!
    Your hair looks fantastic! Sometimes a refresh is exactly what you need. — and as for the Bed head product my mind definitely went somewhere else LOL.
    Here’s to a great September 😀

    I’m obsessed with your hair – such a perfect colour! I’m the same, I like the idea of having my hair short (I used to always have it cut shoulder length) but now I just like to leave it long and clip in my extensions to make it longer haha x
