New Arrival: Leopard Print Puffa, and Bling for my Boots

In ASOS, HandM, leather, leopard, new arrival, office, river island, studded, topshop, worker boots on December 12, 2009 at 9:11 pm
Now before you think I’ve turned into an extra off Eastenders hear me out!
My name is Milly, and I bought a Leopard Print Puffa Jacket.
I’m not proud of myself
but I couldn’t resist!
It was half price in H&M for £15
I love leopard print, and I know its chavvy,
But its so horrible and tacky, that its gorgeous!
Also Ive been after a pair of boots with a chain on for ages,
Like the ones above from Kurt Geiger,
But I don’t really need another pair of boots like those
I also liked these ones again with the chain,
But I had some pretty similar
But I solved my dilemma
With some boot ‘riders’,
courtesy of 2Bandits!
I don’t know, why somebody in the U.K hasn’t come up with these
such a simple but clever idea
£34.99 River Island (this Season)
They are a leather strap with chains and a buckle,
to put round any boots of your choice!
They cost $70 for a pair (about £40)
not cheap, but well worth it
They literally transform any boot you put them on
they come in a variety of leather colours and chain colours,
to mach what you already own
£75 Office ( This Season)
I’d been looking for some sort of boot cuff or strap
just to add to my collection of boots,
but I couldn’t find any anywhere at all
£80 reduced to £20 Topshop (last Year)
Then I came across www.the2bandits.com
really cute designs,
and I cant find anything like them by anybody else
£80 ASOS (This Season)
As you can see they fit, an look great on all of my boots
I literally want to wear them every day
and they go really well with my religion leather jacket
£25 Topshop (from eBay)
I am seriously so chuffed to bits with them,
I’m thinking about getting another pair in black and silver.

Talking of boots, I’m getting these for Christmas
(they are reduced to £195 and my mum and I are paying half each)
Seriously so excited, they are my dream boots!
Ive ordered them into the shop to try next week
I really hope they fit, or I might cry!
MUST NOT BUY ANYMORE BOOTS!

I just couldnt help myself

Millys Hair Through The Ages

In hair on December 6, 2009 at 5:00 pm
So, just for a bit of fun, Ive decided to show you all the pictures of my hair since when I was about 14
Above is the oldest picture I can find
in the purple square I have a brown bob with no fringe, pretty standard
and in the blue square, is where I did work experience at a hairdressers and they set it in curlers for a laugh!
I actually loved having that hair for a day, as in general I can do nothing with it!
Don’t ask what I was doing in the green square,
I was a weird teenager!!

Here Is the first time I’d Properly dyed my hair,
I have always used semi permanents and toners to make my hair kinda reddy,
but here I used a black/blue permanent dye.
Here I’d just had my hair cut quite short, I was going through a punky kind of thing
I had also discovered make-up a bit more,
I tried making my hair into a fauxhawk, and actually loved it so started doing it regularly
Here I am aged about 16 (with my gay best friend)
I had just finished High school, so took that as a cue, to dye my hair crazy
I actually loved having pink hair,
but my boss wasn’t as keen so It didn’t stay for too long
I managed to keep it long enough for my prom though!
I had flicked it out using straighteners
Here I was trying to get back to having normal hair for work
but with a blonde streak just because I couldn’t resist
I then decided to venture into being blonde,
I loooved having blonde hair
again, cut shorter for a fauxhawk
Here I tried a fauxhawk… with a fringe
I quite liked it,
but if I didn’t wear makeup around this time I did get mistaken for a boy
Next I got a bit obsessed with how blonde it was
I made it go proper platinum white blonde
which I totally loved and my work didn’t mind either
(also look how skinny I am here!! it didn’t last for long)
Now I’d grown my hair out a bit more, I tried out a quiff
I think it suits my,
but I only ever wear it if my forehead isn’t spotty
which is not very often
This is my favourite hair of all time,
I love it,
It was VERY white blonde,
With a really blunt fringe,
unfortunately by now my hair was all damaged from over bleaching
To try and combat the damage,
I had my hair cut short again,
which I liked, it was summer so i felt quite summery with it
again, did look like a boy if not wearing a dress or make-up
by now i had totally given up on using bleach,
they changed the ingredients in my regular brand, which hurt my head
and also damaged my hair more than before
and I couldn’t find another brand that went blonde enough
so I stuck a purple on top of it
and it seems my work, had become more relaxed about hair
probably because by now I’d been there for 4 years
I stuck with the purple for a while
but started to get bored again
especially with the fringe
This is my most recent picture
Ive been growing it, and had it cut asymmetrical,
trying to grow my fringe into a swoop down one side
and keep the side with the fringe long
and the other side kinda short
I bought an orange/red highlighting kit and put it all over instead
It came out really bright and I love it,
right now its kinda redder,
as I use a semi permanent bright dye every time I wash to add more colour
well wasn’t that fun!
I would love to hear some comments,
or any hair disasters you’ve had??

Is there something I’m doing wrong?

In Uncategorized on December 4, 2009 at 7:32 pm
Ok so I’m not trying to be whingey
but I REALLLY want more followers,
or more to the point, I don’t really understand why I dont have that many followers!

and I know I’m biased,
but I think my blog is quite good,
and there are loads of blogs out there that I think are kinda lame,
but have a bajillion more followers than me

So instead of being a moaning Mildred,

I’m going to ask:

Is there something I’m doing wrong??
and what can I do to improve??

Any feedback will be muchly appreciated!

oh and to make this post more exciting
here’s some pictures I took a couple of years ago!



also Ive come up with a great post for next week, Milly’s hair through the ages!

What Milly Wore: to go to Argos

In american apparel, ASOS, boots, coatigan, leather jacket, Mary-Kate Olsen, monsoon, river island, what milly wore on December 3, 2009 at 9:47 pm
evenin‘ all
Well today was a bit weird, totally overslept and missed my lecture
but to make up for it I did some work, more on that later!
Well it was chilly outside this evening,
and I needed to walk to Argos to get a new tripod!
Here is what I wore:
Panda Hat: River Island
Studded Leather Jacket: Religion (trying to wear it as much as possible)
Marc Jacobs Style Bag: Market Stall
Bleached Jeans: River Island
Purple Boots: Red or Dead
Hand Warmers: New look ( a couple of years ago £1 )
Mohair Eternity Scarf: Juuls (as worn by Mary-Kate Olsen! expensive but lovely)
Underneath I Wore:
My favourite Grey Cardigan: American apparel (unisex)
Two Tone Bodycon Dress: American Apparel
And here is the lovely Mary-Kate wearing my scarf!
this pic is a good few years old but I think its my favourite of her!

and here is the work I was talking about earlier!
Here is my first Panorama!
Its only test shots, to see if i could do it, and it worked!
Quite chuffed with myself
Just finished moving rooms and got a new bed yesterday so thought I would show you guys my room!
Its not sorted/tidy, but all the furniture is in the right place now!

I love the above cardigan,
I was soooo close to ordering it, I saw a girl wearing it the other day
it looked so good,
I was having a snoop around to see if I could find it or similar,
and this is the exact one
£75 Monsoon
I ordered this one instead
I actually like the other one more,
But this one was £40 ASOS
much cheaper, and also I think the sleeves are better
why put short sleeves on a cardigan??
and I have totally and utterly failed on my not spending money on anything over £20 pounds
I was doing so well
but today Ive put in 3 orders , probably spent £200
oh deario
I’m going to have no money
So my punishment from the boy
is to not buy ANYTHING for a week,
starting tomorrow
: (
