Happy New Year's Eve everybody! I hope you are having a fabulous day so far and have all your arrangements made to welcome in the New Year. 2015! Gosh how fast did that come around? For me 2015 is going to be a year of change. I know, I know, how cliche Katie! But 2015 will mean the end of my education, (hopefully) obtaining a degree, getting a job and becoming (shock) a grown up! Although I have complained over and over about having to do four years of uni, I am glad that this is the path I have gone down as I needed 2014 to figure some things out. Looking back on this past year, I think this has been one of my most transitional periods. I have learnt a lot from the ups and downs, and I think that has made it ever more clearer what I want from life and who I want to be. Is this getting a bit too deep haha? Sorry let's move onto the lighter stuff!
I wanted to share with you guys my New Year's outfit. I am heading to a small gathering/party tonight that one of my childhood friends is hosting, so I wanted to go for something pretty but not like my usual 'over dressed' self. Yesterday I hit the sales. Yes, it happened. It happens every year. My family kept asking me 'when are you going to sales' and I replied with 'I'm trying to be responsible with my money'. Hah! Liar! So clothes were tried on, cards were flashed and money was handed over. Oopsy? In my defence I did try to be good, the intentions were there, I just can't resist a spot of shopping (more like a Tsunami of shopping but oh well). This exquisite lime-green/yellow coat was an absolute find for only £30!! They only had one left in my size so I assumed it had to be fate telling me it was meant to be mine. I also bought these decadent, glittery heels for £25; they are so beautiful, they make my feet look dazzling. And 'where from?' I hear you ask: River Island. I purchased a few other items yesterday but I thought that River Island was the best value for money in the sales.
My newest hair obsession is dutch braids after a friend taught me how to master them. I have noticed that many bloggers, fashionistas and celebrities have been loving the halo braid at the moment, so I have been styling my hair in this way a lot recently. Yesterday I picked up this pretty headband from Primark for £3. I thought it would look so cute if it was delicately placed in with my halo braid hairstyle. The results can be seen in the photos above. I think it looks lovely; what do you guys think?
