Made the stupid mistake of going to Merry Hill today and it was absolute mayhem; prams being thrusted into my ankles, large groups of chavs shouting obscenities and the worst drivers EVER. Anyway, just popped up to have a mooch and managed to get Lee Stafford Argan Oil which I've been trying to hunt down for the past three weeks and finally managed to get some today. It's supposed to be like Moroccan Oil which I found really improved the condition of my hair but the price tag was abit hefty so Lee Stafford's version is the high street equivalent at half the price. I'll give it a go over the next week or so and let you know the results.

Today I fancied going for the 'granny look' as my dad calls it, with a large knitted cardigan from Topshop which has a kind of aztec/ geometric pattern in my usual brown and neutral tones. These aztec patterns have been really popular during S/S '11 and it seems they're following us into A/W '11 which I'm not complaining about! I just teamed it with a black bandeau dress and thick black tights so the pattern stood out more and some brown leather chelsea boots from River Island. I picked these up the other day as I've been looking for a mid-heel ankle boot just for during the day to give me slightly more height and plus I usually find flat shoes really uncomfortable. I can tell these are the types of boots that are gonna match with pretty much everything in my wardrobe and therefore won't be taking them off, ever!

The jewellery I picked is abit mis-match with different coloured stones and patterns but I always wear random jewellery as I've got so many faves I just put them all on together. Plus I don't really think you can go wrong with wearing different types of jewellery even mixing gold and silver, anything goes to me really. I tend to wear more gold than silver anyway as it suits my skintone more and I've always liked the ghetto gold tacky jewellery. I'm loving the jewellery in New Look at the moment, they've got loads of large coloured stone rings for around £4 so I picked up a few today on my travels. Considering doing my nails in an ombre style tonight that I keep seeing in magazines and always say I'll give it a go, if I get round to it I'll post photos tomorrow.
