I hope you all had a nice weekend - I don't always get Bank Holiday weekends off, so it was nice to enjoy this one with some friends. Yesterday I went into Birmingham city centre and had lunch and a few drinks with some friends, which was really nice!
I think sometimes when we read blogs, we always see new items of clothing and people looking overly glamorous and as readers we can be left lusting over this type of lifestyle. However, the truth is that blogs (and social media in general) are designed to showcase the best parts - and so we don't always see the days where a blogger throws on a dress and leaves the house looking comfortable and cosy.
I don't wear this Scarlett & Jo dress often enough, but as I knew I would be in the pub for a good few hours yesterday I wanted something that I would be comfortable wearing all day. I knew this dress would be perfect because it's really nice and oversized and the material is nice and soft.
I literally threw this on, some leggings and a pair of pale pink trainers. I felt decent and was comfortable all day!
What have you been up to this weekend?

In the lead up to the event I decided that I wanted a new dress to wear. I'll be honest this year I have tried to buy less clothes, because I have so many and it felt like I was wasting money. So, as much as I wanted a new dress, it was definitely going to have to be a budget purchase.
By chance, an email arrived in my inbox to tell me that Scarlett and Jo were having a clearance sale. so I had to pop along for a nosey. I have loads of Scarlett & Jo dresses, so I know when it comes to sizing and quality, they're not going to let me down.
I picked up this teal jewel coloured lollidot dress for just £15. What I love about Scarlett and Jo dresses is the thick, jersey material that they use - it always falls really nicely and makes the dress so comfortable to wear.
Size wise I sized down once on this, because I know that they always come up quite generous. I probably could have sized down again, but it didn't feel too big and it was nice to have a floaty type dress to wear - I think it could also be a pub garden pub dress too!
What new fashion items have you bought lately?

Luckily for me though I have found this fantastic guide from look what's cool to help me work out what to get them, I know this is just a little thing but I hope that this helps you all
Another cool, out of the box idea, is the gift of personal branding. People often think of logos as corporate, but with programs like Logojoy, anyone can brand themselves with a personalized logo design. It's super affordable (as little as $20USD), looks great, and perfectly pairs with a resume, social profile, or in an email signature. Just a thought!

I've always liked having a fringe, when I was given the chance to try a hair piece from Campbell Wigs a few years ago, I jumped at the chance. I'd never been had anything like that, not even hair extensions so it was an interesting journey, but one that I really enjoyed!
Before I had the hair piece fitted, I never really how my thin fringe affected me - I always cope(d) with thin hair but the hair piece made such a difference. Before this happened I would have scrolled past adverts for hair transplants, without giving them a second thought.
Obviously any procedure like this is a serious one and it should be investigated fully, but I am definitely more open to the idea than I once was! Of course, I'd have to take into consideration the FUE hair transplat cost, but even so - it could be something that I would give some thought to in the future.
How do you feel when it comes to cosmetic procedures? Are they something that you would consider?
