I received some GHD total volume foam way back at the start of November- then I went to Nepal, then it was Christmas, then I got nits, and here we are. It does mean I've had a good long while to test it out. The smell is amazing, and using a foam actually feels loads nicer on my hair than what I was using before, a L'Oreal mousse which could make my hair crispy. I do still struggle a bit with volume, but as somehow who can't be bothered with the whole blow dry routine, this is a pretty good result.

I look rather moody in these pictures- we were hanging about in a square behind Selfridges to take these, waiting for a quiet moment that never came. First a couple came and got into their car right next to us. Then a woman came and parked in their space, got out of her car and stood there chatting on her phone (grr). Then some lost tourist approached us, then some gawking groups of people, and then I got fed up. Anyway, I'm wearing cat tights, that's the main thing.

  1. Glad you got the cat tights! :) I think I'll mainly wear mine the other way round, to show the cat faces off more haha. They're so cute.
    That's one reason I don't think I could do outfit posts, especially outside - people staring! It would put me right off! I admire you, I really do! xx

  2. Ugh crispy mousse hair is the worst! I remember that was like a "trend" back at school, god knows why. Yours certainly looks luscious here. I've been using a John Frieda root boost spray before blow-drying and it's actually amazing!

    Love your ensemble as per, those nautical stripes are definitely getting me in the mood for Spring :) xxx

  3. I'm really enjoying the grumpy undertones of this post. Your hair looks volumised and super glam, very jealous. I'm also enjoying that you look like the stylish school girl I never was.

    Excuse me while I go back and comment on your other posts (your the first blog I've commented on since my break, be honoured) xxx

  4. Hair mousse and I don't get along so brilliantly, maybe I just haven't got the knack to coax it!

    The cat tights have blown my mind, they are brilliant

  14. Your hair looks lovely here, really like that dress, I have a lot of love for navy/blue and white together so I've got a lot of stripy and spotty frocks and tops but nothing with vertical stripes, I've never managed to find anything

  25. Oh my ... nits?! My poor son came home from school with those a couple months back and I was horrified. I had to tear a part and wash the whole house...I'm so paranoid. I've always wanted to try the GHD mousse though. I have the same issue with volume and finding mousses that aren't' too crunchy.

    Of course despite all the annoyances of passersby - you look completely cool and composed here. I am truly head over heels for those kitty tights! <3 Marisa

  30. Mega cute tights! I want some... right now I'm wearing most of my wardrobe, it's so cold in our house. My PJS have sheep on them... whoop.

    Next time I'm London-bound, we should have a coffee for sure- good idea.

    Hope all is well with you, xxx

  36. The cat tights are awesome! You wouldn't notice from the front - they look all boring and professional with a little bit of fun at the back lol!
    I love your tea bar flats as well!
    I wonder if our outfit shots will be as eventful lol

  37. Ugghh I swear you are the only blogger out there who has voiced how frustrating it can be to take outfit photos in public!! I thought I was the only one who had this problem with people gawking.
    I LOVE those cat tights and that the kitty face is on the back of the ankle, so cute :)
