Straighten up...

Although I may complain about my hair, I have been lucky enough to have hair which I can straighten if I want to (unlike my younger sister for example!) even though I don't do it that often.  The other morning I woke up with completely mad hair- one side looked like I had been electrocuted and the other was completely flat. I knew that nothing would work except straightening it so out came my trusty straighteners, which I have had for years, and my rather snazzy hair styling kit from GHD. (post to come on this lovely set soon!)

Jacket: New Look, blouse: Topshop, skirt: Kew via charity shop, tights: Primark,  shoes: New Look, necklace: Accessorize
I always end up pulling this shirt out for when I am feeling particularly uninspired with my work outfits and it was the perfect match for this purple suede-y mini skirt (seen here with my alphabetights). It was loose enough to contrast with the skirt but still look smart with the blazer (I hope!)


Paired with a huge necklace from Accessorize, this was an outfit that I felt relaxed in but also confident. The necklace is definitely my biggest statement piece of jewellery and it is surprisingly versatile due to the number of colours it incorporates. I had stopped wearing it for a while as it was so heavy that it broke itself and only now had I bothered to get a piece of ribbon to tie the 'shields' back together again. Definitely a necklace that means business...


When I straighten my hair, I don't like it to look too pristine, so I liked how this turned out with the different lengths of my layers. I haven't had them cut back in now for at least 6 months but until I chop it a lot shorter my hair will still have all these different lengths in. Any tips on making my hair grow faster?

Do you have any tips on making your hair grow faster? What do you wear when you mean business?

Love the different tones of purple in this outfit & the necklace is so attention grabbing, it suits your look perfectly!
One of my friends swears by massaging olive oil into her scalp for 10 minutes before bed & leaving it overnight as a way to get her hair to grow so long & healthy looking! I've never tried it myself, but might be worth a go? :)

On my days off I just put my hair up with a clip and don't brush it and try and leave it alone so I don't damage it, usually does the trick.

Your hair looks great straight. I take hair and nail vitamins - not sure if they help or not but my hair does seem to grow pretty fast.
Love the statement necklace too. x

Love the outfit you're wearing. I'd say the best tip for healthy hair(not sure if it helps it grow-but it must help in a way) is to not wash it as often, less heat and a hair mask once a week

Lee Stafford treatment "for hair that never grows" works WONDERS on me. You're so lucky you've got such versatile hair! When I straighten mine it just goes flat and meh, but yours is so luscious :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
