OOTD: Spots

Topshop Total Look

I have found some old OOTD's that I haven't posted yet so I figured I'd put them on since I have been really lazy lately and haven't taken any so I'm going to try to set a day aside soon to do that. Life is still as busy as ever I'm trying to sort out what lies in my future and I normally always factor everyone else in before myself so I need to sit down and take everyone else out of the picture and decide whats best for me, I'll be honest its a scary thought and I've been procrastinating on this for a while now. Watch this space.

14 for 2014 - New Camera

So one of my goals for this year was to get myself a new camera. Don't get me wrong I love my Powershot but I really want to get serious about my photography so I figured getting a DSLR was the right move this year. I've barely been using any of the automatic settings on my Powershot for a while now too the only problem is sometimes I feel the zoom is a little slow for me to get a shot quickly enough so the manual zoom on a DSLR again appeals.

I've been doing my research and looking at different brands but to be honest I am a Canon fan so I think I knew it would always be one of their cameras. I decided to go with the 700D in the end, I had been toying with the 600D at the start of the year but the flip out back and touch screen persuaded me to move up to the 700D. I really want to get into making more videos as well this year as an addition to my photography, trying to document life in a different way I suppose.

So far I have taken it out a couple of times and I'm enjoying the added flexibility a DSLR gives, it is really lightweight for a DSLR but it still is a bit of a pain to carry around by the end of the day. I still need to get used to a lot of the features and discover where everything is but because I have always used Canons it is coming to me quite quickly. I think for the high end of a beginner DSLR it fits everything I need perfectly. I got it with the 18-55mm lens but I am thinking I will expand into other lenses soon so recommendations will be appreciated.

Review: L'oreal Serie Expert Volumetry Shampoo

I tried out this shampoo as I had run out of my usual moisturising shampoo and decided I needed to switch up my routine a little. I normally go for a moisture based shampoo because I had longer hair and a lot of colour on the ends but since having it all cut off 2 months ago I figured that I didn’t need to continue with it. My hair has always lacked the volume I would like so trying a volume boosting shampoo was my logical step.

I really like this shampoo as it has a pleasant fragrance and feels lovely and light on my hair and better yet it does actually boost my hairs volume, and keep it. My hair feels soft and light without being weighed down by product, my roots feel lifted and each hair strand feels smooth and free of fly-aways. The shampoo has quite a gel like look and I have found that I don't need to use a lot of it and although I know it has nothing to do with how well it actually cleans your hair it foams up nicely to spread over the hair easily and making my scalp feel really clean.

The price isn't too high to say it is a salon brand product I got mine for around £8 in a store in my hometown which for a 250ml bottle I wouldnt want to pay regularly but feelunique.com has the 1500ml salon size bottles which are more cost effective if you liked the product and wanted to invest in more {I have a feeling I might be}

OOTD: Think About It

Happy Birthday to me! I'm getting older but not necessarily wiser, I am however thinking more about where I want to go with my life as I am getting older and how I want to live. I'm trying to stick with my Buy Less, Choose Well resolution for my birthday this year so I have asked for money so I can put it toward something special and asked my friends not to buy me gifts but take me on days out, the first of which was earlier this week {in this post}.

April is probably the time when i really start to make my bug choices and changes, I don't know whether its because it contains my birthday but it always seems that if I put my mind to something in April I stick to it so I'm excited to see what comes of this April. Whatever you are doing today I wish you a good one!

OOTD: Coffee?

New Look dress, Warehouse cardigan, M&S Tights, Office Boots, Mulberry 'Tillie' Bag

The weather took a turn for the cold again last week but I was determined to wear a dress to meet my friend for coffee as really spring weather should be here by now. I'm still trying to wear these boots from office I brought them last September but I have funny feet and it basically takes forever to wear in any shoes I find that actually fit my feet half decently. 

I'm off work this week and am hoping to get some rest but at the same time I am trying to keep myself busy, Hopefully my family might be going away for the weekend this friday which will hopefully give me somewhere new to explore. Today I am in Stratford with my friend Mem checking out all the town and brushing up on our Shakesphere as it is the 450th year celebration of his life and works. I'll post a photo diary up soon for anyone interested.
