Maui Jim Sunglasses

My friend (and fellow blogger) Adorn Girl recently told me cool sunglasses are a trademark for me. Part of my signature style, she said. I had never really thought of it like that before, but I guess I am a sunglasses addict, so I guess that would seem about right. These bad boys are by Maui Jim, they are incredibly comfortable and stylish, they also have perfectly polarised lenses. Maui Jim are a big eyewear name in the sports world, but if you are not so sporty (like me) make sure you look them up as their glasses are brilliant!

Brooches & Pins

Not only is my jacket covered in patches on the back, but I’m starting to cover the front in pin badges and brooches. I keep wearing the same few, but I’m itching to expand my collection. If anyone has seen any super cute brooches recently, send me the links! I wanna see! I need more! Also, completely off-topic, but my hair is desperately in need of both a root touch up and a hair cut, last week it was really stressing me out, but I have been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to book into a salon to sort it out. Then I got sent some shampoo and conditioner by PROVOKE A Touch Of Silver to try out and I didn’t really think much of it, but when I looked at these photos I realised my hair actually looks like a much nicer shade of blonde as a result, less yellow and brassy and instead it has a bit more of a rose gold tone to it. I’m still need a cut and a root touch up, but I’m impressed as the way it’s toned down the yellowness of it. Just thought I would share that in case anyone else has any blonde hair issues.
