Beautiful Braids

It's the time of year when a lot of people are travelling to hot destinations for their holidays,which for me means that my hair gets frazzled and dry.There are loads of products that can help with this but I find that braiding my hair is a no fuss and quick way to sort out my dilemmas.
So here is my hair inspiration for this Summer...

Guest Post from Framecake

The guest post (interview style) from Sazzly Glimmer, owner of the amazing blog 'Framecake' has arrived! Enjoy...

Why did you start framecake?

I started framecake earlier this year because a friend of my mum's was asking if I liked fashion.. She said I should make a blog so, at 11 o'clock of that night framecake was born!! I'm now seriously addicted to blogging!

What is your favourite high street shop?

I wear lot's of Topshop but I really love Zara at the moment!! I think their tops are lovely this season!!

^^A quirky Zara ear cuff I treated myself to recently because I love to look crazy because that's exactly who I am!!

What is your favourite item of clothing?

My red jumper which my Nana bought for me! It's big, its red, its warm, its comfy and it goes with everything! (Either it goes with everything or I just wear it with everything- that's the same thing right???)

Who is your favourite designer?

Really love Mary Katrantzou at the moment but have had a passion for Vivienne Westwood for years... And Henry Holland.. I couldn't choose!!
Mary Katrantzou, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Henry Holland AW13

What is your favourite Fashion Magazine?

Well, I love reading Style which I get every Sunday in the Sunday Times and have loved it for years! I am also developing a love for Company Magazine too!! Never been a real magazine person but I think I'm slowly being converted!

If you could have anyone's wardrobe for a day whose would it be?

I have a major love for Alexa Chung and her beautiful day-to-day style so I would say her! Can I look like her too??

Have you had any fashion disasters?

I think that some people would probably class most of my day to day looks as fashion disasters- all my crazy experimenting is just a learning curve. Quote me on that. Sounds very intelligent

If you had to live in one outfit for the rest of your life then what would it be?

It's not mine, but if I could I would live in this Oscar de la Renta dress that the beautiful Rihanna wore to the Brits way back in 2011!! I just totally fell in love with it!
And Vans, I'd wear Vans because I love them.:-)
