This week I have mainly been treating myself to things in an attempt to scrub up my appearance and look vaguely normal. For months I have been slobbing about in the same pair of trainers (or my one pair of available flip flops, if it’s hot) and I have been wearing the same two outfits on rotation. My hair roots were down to my ears.
So on Friday I paid a visit to Trevor Sorbie in Covent Garden to see my brilliant colourist, John Spanton, who blondes me or “caramels” me depending on what faddy notion I’m having at the time! I’ll be writing more about this visit, because John used a very intriguing new conditioning and strengthening treatment on my hair and it needs investigating, but for now, behold: I am very much blonder.
And I love it – it feels very fresh and summery. I also had a bit of a trim and shape courtesy of Frederico – everything is now swishy and my dry ends are gone. New hair, new woman – I can’t tell you how much it has lifted my mood!
On the lust-list: just about everything from Hush’s Autumn collection, which has just landed. In the photos above I’m wearing the Plaid Shirt, which is much thicker and warmer than your usual plaid shirt, but I am seriously hankering after the Cashmere Bea Jumper, the Contrast Rollneck (would look amazing with black skinny jeans) and the winter version of my beloved Star Pyjamas. Hush have 10% off this bank holiday with free delivery and returns – the code is AWXX15 and you can use it here.
I’ve had other treats (including these lovely Steve Madden boots) but I need to take photos of them and also decide whether the dresses I’ve bought are “keepers” or not. I’ll get back to you! No pet photos this week because the cat is still at my Mum’s and Dexter the dog moves too fast to catch, but if you want life and baby updates then they are all over on The Uphill.
