I've noticed I've gained some new followers even though I've been a terrible blogger lately, so thank you and hi! I have so much to update about and so little time. Not least I really really want to share my New York trip! Definitely will be catching up over the Christmas break.

I got a DSLR for Christmas so here's a recent outfit photo from a night out. The pic was taken accidently by my friend a little worse for wear, but I kind of like how it turned out!

Jacket - one off sample
Cami - M&S of all places, I love this cami!
Skirt - Vintage
Bag - Whistles
Watch - ToyWatch
Necklace - LF Stores, NYC

I've been instagramming my outfits this week, so will post a round up at the weekend. You can view them daily on twitter @hardtochase

A quick old post to say I turned 30 and finally went to Bleach London and got my hair done, by the wonderful Matthew ♥

It's washed out to a gold blonde on the ends now, with my previous red in the middle and black roots which I kind of like, but definitely going back post Christmas for another super cool colour on the ends. Watch this space. Also got myself another present on a total whim straight after my hair appointment - somehow ended up on a tube to Hackney Road, completely unplanned, to get the tattoo that's been in my head for ages.
No regrets.

So I'm not sure what to name this post in light of recent media coverage but nevertheless I've been meaning to post this collection of images for some time now.

The celebrations have begun! Amazing family fun last night...

I love this sleeveless blazer type thing, you can't tell from the photo but it has chiffon sleeves. It was a sample from work so it's completely unique!

I definitely should be packing to go back to my parents' house in Berkshire (they are throwing a family 30th party for me to night) but I have just been sidetracked by the Versace for H&M collection (damn Guardian Fashion being my homepage. I only came online to check my balance).

Everything appeals to my inner Nicki Minaj but I am going to be elbowing people out of the way for those leggings and that skirt AND THAT CAP.


My beautician asked me this morning if I live in London for uni - she thought I was 21!!. This is excellent because next Saturday is my 30th birthday!
I can't think of a better way to spend the morning of my 30th than at BLEACH LONDON getting my hair dyed in a way I probably wouldn't have considered since around the age of 15 when Wella Colour Mousse and Sun In were all the rage.
What exactly I'm going for is underwraps until the day (not least because I don't know if I'll have the guts to go through with it. There's a plan A* and a plan B at the moment) but here's a selection of images from the folder on my computer name "hairspiration".

*Plan A is infinitely more exciting, but with excitement comes fear.

So bored of my hair right now. I wish I was brave enough to pull off something super cool like this. Love her tartan too.

So Monki launched online and I've found myself going hell for pleather.
