Dance alone to the beat of your heart.

As promised in my last Friday Frock, I spent a little part of last weekend on a mission to make myself feel like ME again. Isn’t it funny how having a bug for a few days can make you feel totally different? In my case, I always just feel hideous – my hair seems extra frizzy, my skin seems dull, the bags under my eyes have their own postcode. You know how it is, right?

Anyway, I redyed my hair and got a long overdue cut on Saturday – it had been about four months and it was becoming impossible to force a brush through it (I don’t know how some girls get their hair cut only once a year!) and I instantly felt better. There’s nothing like having shiny hair to make you feel more positive about things – shallow, yes, but also true. I rarely straighten my hair these days as it just doesn’t STAY straight, but when a professional does it, I can make the blowdry last and last.

Dress – New Look
Blazer & Tights – Primark
Necklace – Topshop
Shoes – Buffalo flat shoes

I picked up the dress in the New Look sale about a month ago for a bargainy £12. It’s by Mela Loves London which I’ve raved about before – their dresses just seem to fit me so well and they’re always well made but inexpensive. I love the print so much, and felt rather nice when I teamed it with my new blazer from... Primark! I KNOW! It’s nice, innit? Honestly, the sun shining always puts me in a good mood, but when I’ve got a new outfit and new hair to boot, I’m pretty much unstoppable.

I then made my way to the George at Asda event on Carnaby Street with Chloe, where I took in their new collection (see our favourites below!) and indulged in candy floss. And as if they KNEW that I hadn’t had much time to beautify myself lately, as there were also lovely ladies on hand to give us manicures and makeovers. Hooray!

Afterwards I took Chloe on a bit of a tour of some of my favourite nearby haunts – a late lunch at Tibits, a cupcake at Hummingbird and then cocktails at Thirst. Not a bad Saturday, all in! What did you get up to?
