A lovely warm leopard.... print coat!

Firstly I am so sorry for the poor quality pictures, I took this in a hurry on my phone and the light was bad. I was too eager to share my new coat.... 

I bought this gorgeous new faux leopard fur coat today - it was an absoloute steal! Its a lovely swing shape and is so warm and fluffy!!

 Here's the dress I am wearing underneath... having a 60s day with a moderate beehive.
Back of the beehive... I roll the bottom half into a french pleat then pin curl the ends of the top half of hair so it looks prettier! There is a little rat in here to add height so I don't have to do much back combing! Trying to take care of my poor hair, it does get tugged about and coated in gunk alot!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!

Beehives and bangs...

I go through phases of favourite do's...

At the moment I am regularly sporting a front rolled fringe, met with victory rolls and a roll at the back. This gets lots of compliments but is very easy... you just need dirty hair! :)

My other favourite do at the moment is a beehive, I have been getting it very big a la Amy Winehouse... pic to follow....

My how time flies....

Wow where has the last month gone??!!

I have been neglecting the blog, but have been busy enjoying the summer... I have done so many things that I have meant to blog about so I will try to catch up...

So for anyone Oxfordhsire way in the UK go check out Nelsons diner

Its a lovely 50s style diner, great for a bit of nostalgic fun!

Speaking of nostalgia... here I am dancing with my Grandad. I lost him this year. He was a great man and a great dancer!! :)

 One thing I did manage to do this summer was make a dress out of the nautical fabric I showed you earlier. Sorry for terible picture its off my phone and light was bad.
Nautical but nice.... this was from a Buttericks 52 pattern. I'm going to knock it up in black next, as sadly I have now unpacked my winter wardrobe, all the pretty florals are safely tucked away till next year! :(
