what i wore - sequins and dots

once again i have dots on! not quite polka dots i don't think, but still a dotted pattern. yes i love dotted things. not long ago i found this lipstick that i completely forgot i had. i think it looks good with my skin tone, it's a bit darker than i normally wear but i like it. it's collection 2000 in ruby red, incase you're wondering.

i have a question for anyone out there with hair/product knowledge. my hair is very fine, and quite thin, and often looks straggly (but not greasy) unless i've pretty much just washed it. are there any tips you can give to help it at least look a bit more voluminous? preferably without breaking the bank and having to put loads of chemicals in my hair. something like a shampoo, some sort of spray or a natural recipe?

i've had layers in the past, but i don't particularly want them now, as i like having all my hair the same length. i really want to be able to try some more hairstyles, but i find nothing ever seems to work as it just goes flat and rubbish looking in next to no time.



i love the subtle scalloped edges on this little bolero style top as well as the pearly sequins. it's quite flashy looking, but not too much. most people would only wear this sort of thing on a night out or for a meal or something, but i have no problem wearing this just going about my day! covers me up a bit without making me too hot.

also, i prefer cardigans and such with a shorter cut as i feel they're much more flattering to my figure. i feel uncomfortable wearing anything much longer than the bottom part of my waist.
