Hello new hair! The photographs aren't actually doing it that much justice, it's a lot lighter in person but when I take my photos in the morning the light is really dull. It's so nice and refreshing to have a change after the same hair colour for over a year. I didn't have too many highlights put through my hair just so the maintenance is easier and my roots won't need to be touched up as often. Overall, I'm really pleased with the result!

I'm also debuting my new white Winter swing coat which I bought last weekend and wasn't quite sure about. I'm lethal with anything white as I tend to send them orange within seconds but I managed to keep this quite clean today! I love the minimalist style and the clean cut look of the coat, the black trims and zip detailing give it something extra though. I paired it with this really cute bulldog blouse which I found in my local Primark over the weekend. I love anything with dogs on at the moment, probably because I'm not allowed a real one! The blouse was £12 which is a good price compared to many printed sheer blouses on the market today, it's also pretty good quality so worth a buy. 

I managed to get round to changing my nails last night, thought I'd get into the festive spirit and go for an over the top glitter style (even though that's what I usually go for anyway!). I'm in love with this Limited Edition gold glitter polish from No.7 at Boots. It's a mixture of really tiny and larger gold pieces which spread easily onto the nail. I used two coats on top of this neutral lilac shade and it came out pretty thick so I don't think any more coats are needed. I'm definitely sticking with this one for the rest of the week, it goes with pretty much any outfit and I'm too lazy to keep changing them!
