I have been in a dilemma that every female gets themselves into: do I cut my hair or let it grow? But yesterday I had a moment in Boots where I was inspired to let it grow! As I previously mentioned, I am totally swept up in Mad Men and my firm decision to grow my hair is mainly due to the glamorous up do's in the series. So here is attempt one, more will follow as my hair grows.

Today at work we decided that it was only right we dress up for Halloween and what's the best theme for anything? You guessed it leopard print of course! We had a quick photo session this afternoon so we all had proof of leopard print day. So from left to right we have Llara - who has a whole wardrobe of leopard, Dave, Louise, me and Carol and Danielle in the front. What have you got planned for Halloween?

Last night I finally sat down to start watching Mad Men, yes I know that I am miles behind everyone but, well I have no excuse. After only watching the first two episodes, I am already madly in love, with the hair, the heels, the make up and most of all the dresses. Christina Hendricks' character Joan is officially my new style crush, and here are just a few reasons why:

My mum is pretty nifty with her sewing machine; she's whipped up dresses for every occasion for me since I was born. So I was checking my emails this evening after a long soak in the bath to find my mum has been sifting through her old patterns and found these stunners:
Now is it fair to ask for one of each?

Like a lot of girls I was obsessed by fairytales when I was a child and I am now pretty obsessed with my hair (as you can probably tell from previous posts), so the brand new ghd advert excites me so much. Just look at the styling, the hair, the make up, I absolutely adore the whole thing, from head to toes - keep an eye out for the sparkly shoes! Is it just me that dreams of balls like this?

Ikea have done it again, first we had the cute cats and now we had cool kitchens. I was casually eating my grapefruit in my pyjamas this morning and I hear the dulcet tones of Jona Lewie. 'You will always find him in the kitchen at parties' is one of my all time favourite songs and Ikea have just made it even better with the help of Man Like Me.

Waiting for pay day never took so long. As well as waiting to buy some furry slippers for the sudden move to winter, I am looking to buy some cute things from Artbox. Since moving away from London, and now being all the way in Glasgow, I miss wondering aimlessly around Artbox, it is the home of all cute things in the UK.
