I Picked a Dress! (Christmas Night Out)

Hi guys! Just a quick HI! to my new followers and I am super excited to be nearly at 200 followers. I'd love to be there by the end of the year, so if you enjoy reading my blog please recommend me, I'd hugely appreciate it. ^_^

So I had an amazing response to my dress dilemma post, where I couldn't decide which dress to keep for my Christmas night out. The overwhelming consensus was either number 1 or 4...



So I decided to keep both! I'm saving the sequin one for Hoggers (NYE for all you non-Scottish folk). But today I thought I'd share some of my photos from my Christmas Night Out!

I also have some exciting news (not really). Those of you who follow me on Twitter will already know this, but I have gone to the DARK SIDE! Yes, I am no longer platinum blonde. If you glance up to the right, you will see the hair colour I usually have - preeeetty blonde. I've always been blonde, ever since I was a little tot...

I know, what a photo!! Don't have a huge selection of little me on my comp tho so that will have to do. =p

My sister is like a chameleon of hair colour, she has naturally dark hair but has been everything from white blonde to black over the years...


... And it's made me a bit jealous! So last year I tried dying my hair brown.

... It didn't last long, an soon I was back to platinum blonde!

But this time I was determined to go a bit darker properly and went to my hair extensionist so she could colour it and match my extensions at the same time. I asked for golden blonde, like Blake's...




... this photo (that I took quickly for Twitter!) doesn't really show the golden tones very well. The following pictures show it better.

But anyways! I have a really close group of friends I met at uni, we go out every year and this year we went to Ashton Lane in Glasgow West End. It's a beautiful little pedestrian-only cobbled lane filled with pubs and restaurants.


It's a lovely place to go for a night out. Here's me in THE OUTFIT.

I added a cute little belt from Primark and my amaaaazing shoes from ASOS. Clearly I forgot to clean my camera as well. =p

Close up of my hair - what do you think? I actually really like it now!

Me and my best friends. ^_^


I had a great night, it's so lovely to catch up with friends, and I love the festive season for all the excuses to dress up! Hope you guys are enjoying it so far.

So did I end up picking the right dress? It was actually totally down to you guys cause I wouldn't have kept this one otherwise!! And what do you think of my new hair?? Do I suit it?
Let me know!!

    @Angie - I can't wait to wear the sequin one! My new colour is really growing on me too. I keep getting a fright when I look down cause it looks so dark but I know it's not really, it's just compared to what I'm used to!! =p
