Outfit

It really made my day when I successfully completed this hairstyle; it was so exciting. When I think about how short and thin my hair is, it really is incredible that I did it. I've been trying this hairstyle for weeks; I was previously only able to do this hairstyle with the smaller bun enhancer but I think it loses a lot of the effect when its too small (especially when it is placed higher up compared to the low ballerina bun). It is a real struggle to cover such a large bun enhancer with such a tiny amount of hair but I did it and I'm happy with the way it turned out. These bun enhancers that I have recently discovered are truly a life saver. It is very infrequently that I will rave about a hair product (I find that most, with the exception of dry shampoo, do not work) so I really mean it when I talk about how great these are. There are so many benefits; my hair looks so much longer and thicker than it actually is, I I don't have to worry about my hair in the wind, my hair doesn't need to be clean and it saves me from straightening my hair every single day. I can't believe I've only just discovered it! I highly recommend this hairstyle. If I can do it (I have extremely limited skills with hair; the only thing I can do is straightening) then anyone can do it. 

I had a very busy weekend. On Saturday my sister and I went to check out Topshop that just opened up in Sydney. To be honest, I was very disappointed; in my opinion it was overpriced, average quality and not at all my style but I thought Topman was pretty amazing. I bought Rydog a leopard print shirt. I ended up buying a few dresses from Dotti in the city. This is one of them (it was a total bargain for $30). One of the reasons why I love this dress is because of all the beautiful colours. It reminds me of a dress which was previously sold on Modcloth (it was a velvet rainbow tye dye skater dress). For some reason I had the desire to wear it with red accessories; I thought it was a unique choice that really stood out) but there are so many other colour combinations I could pair it with. I adore the cut of this dress too. The cut, coupled with my hairstyle, made me feel like a figure skater or a ballerina.
