Belt - Levi // Chelsea boots - Office // Gold chain - DIY
001 // I've been seeing a lot of monochromes and clean or plain looking trends recently and I thought I would try it out, for a friend's birthday meal, but with a bit of Mia injected in. I have been in love with these high waisted baggy jeans ever since my nan gave them to me (they should be called 'nan' jeans) but they were a tad big, an ugly colour and were flared... but I knew they had potential! So I waved my magic fashion wand and they looked just like any Topshop pair after I had bleached them, taken in the ankles, rolled them up and added a belt. Why pay £50 for a pair when you can have them for free hey?
002 // Being such a fan of DIYing and saving money, instead of paying £20 for a gold chain in Topshop or on Asos, I got my dad to run me down to B&Q and I found the nicest looking chain and to be completely honest I preferred the squared edge to the rounded ones in most shops! It turned out to be about £4 a metre which meant I could make a couple of necklaces by simply tying two ends together with ribbon and some bracelets by doing the same for a measly four quid! I really recommend trying this out because not only do you save yourself A TON of money, you have a completely unique statement necklace that will be the envy of all your friends (I'm talking from experience here...)
003 // In other news, I have been having a good summer holiday so far, enjoying multiple parties, sleepovers and beach trips, although word of warning if you are going out in the sun for the whole day in just a bikini... please put sun cream on. Now this isn't going to be a rant about how its bad for you and how you'll get skin cancer (you still might though) but I have had the WORST burns this week and I haven't been able to sleep and somehow, I didn't even know that this was possible, but I sunburnt my lips and lets just say the consequences have been ugly... ugly in the form of a mouth full of cold sores :( so if you guys have any tips or tricks to get rid of cold sores quickly then they will be much appreciated otherwise I will end up spending the rest of the holidays locked in my room crying in the mirror...
