A well-fitting, good quality biker jacket is a trans-seasonal must have in my fashion books. It’s classy and timeless, yet edgy and fashion-forward. It can be worn in so many different ways, whether you have a more feminine style or you like to look grungy, or you’re into street wear. It suits almost every style I’d say.
For those who are ethically conscious, there are plenty of pleather and leather alternatives out there. I for one don’t buy real leather jackets – a) I prefer to know an animal wasn’t harmed for my outfit and b) there’s no way I would ever be able to afford it anyway 😛
Here is a little style board I put together to show you just how cool biker jackets are.
I bought one from Sportsgirl recently and it has been on high rotation ever since.
What do you guys think of the whole biker jacket trend?
Happy weekend lovelies!
Changing your hairstyle is a huge decision to make. Everyone knows that a disastrous haircut can have an impact on a) your self-esteem, b) your face shape and c) your general attractiveness. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit. But you get the picture.
While I was in Vietnam in January I got my mid-length hair chopped into a shoulder length bob with the back shaved off. It’s kinda radical but I love it to bits. I do really miss the look of long hair sometimes though, and that’s where hair extensions come in handy.
I’d honestly never considered them until I came across Irresistible Me – they kindly sent me some 20 inch extensions to try out and I’m kinda hooked. I did the shoot for this post at uni, so I obviously wasn’t able to style the hair properly. But I can’t wait to use them for special nights out and also cosplay!!

I think I look a lot girlier in the second pic!! I’m looking forward to seeing what else I can do with these clip in extensions as they are real hair, so I can curl them/straighten them etc. Also they are actually rather simple to put in, just little clips that attach to your hair. I mean, the back of my head is shaved and my housemate still managed to get them in…
What do you guys think of hair extensions? Have you tried them? If not, would you?
Have a great weekend my lovely followers and readers!
