*Waves hello*

Damn! There are a lot more of you reading this than there were yesterday!

Hello peoples and yes this is my new blog :)

I kept it quiet mainly because I wanted to just see how I felt about the routine of blogging. I didn't want to be the annoying bitch who set up a new blog only to turnaround a week later and say..."nah, can't be arsed. Laterz."

So count this as a fresh start and here we are :) There will be no YouTube videos but there will be blogposts abound so welcome!

I should warn you that this blog may also be a little bit different from the old one - if anything more random and less makeup focussed. Because let's face it, I know sweet FA about makeup really. Today for example I just slathered on the Studio Fix Fluid, applied 15 layers of mascara and wore a lip balm....I have a lot to learn and nothing to teach anyone :)

In other news...

Today I wore another one of my "interesting" Cheap Monday tops.

Black is bloody hard to photograph so I gave up...all I will say is that it looks like a conventional vest top but drapes on one side down to ankle length. ASOS have it on their site so this will give you a better idea. Link!

It's semi-amazing like all Cheap Monday things.

Here are some photos that fail to demonstrate it....black blob!




I am tempted to wear this without the leggings when I am back in Dubai....I think I could maybe get away with it if worn with flats...we'll see.

I would rather not wear a jacket/coat with this top...I don't have anything long enough but due to the rain I whipped out my Sonia Rykiel mac.





Another fantastic buy, I got this in the mywardrobe.com sale at the beginning of this year and I am waiting for their summer sale to start....they have the best bargains and there is a Missoni dress I have been revisiting for the last 6 months....fingers crossed.

Talking of Missoni....best San Pellegrino bottle ever?


Hey...I did warn you...this was going to be a random blog! :)

This was me at Dunch in Pizza Express tonight (Dinner/Lunch at about 6pm...) with rain-frizz hair.  Lets all raise a glass to lots of happy blogging. Good to have you here :) x



PS. Outfit details...

Top: Cheap Monday
Belt: Forever 21
Leggings: Topshop
Flats: Tory Burch
Bag: Miu Miu
Mac: Sonia by Sonia Rykiel

    ReplyDelete
  39. @ Laura : Sometimes I think wearing only black can look very classy and I usually pair it with brownish make up look.

    I like the fun touch of your shoes and of course the purse!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love that top/dress ... I have one a teeny bit similar that goes down at one side. I wear with denim shorts on holidays and a nice little straw hat. Wearing it at home is difficult though because of the jacket situation like you say.

    P.s Nice to have you back! xx

    ReplyDelete
  55. OK, so I have mixed emotions... on the one hand, I'm motherf*cking thrilled that you are back in cyber space - on the other hand, I'm so disappointed I didn't know sooner! At least I just spent the last 30mins being able to catch up on your posts so far.
    Absolutely love that you're back to doing what you do best x

    ReplyDelete
  56. so glad you're back to blogging! these posts seem so natural and relaxed, it's really nice to some shots from your every day life and less focus on the youtube world(which has a very skewed view these days, if we're going to be honest)

  61. I'm so very glad you're back, Laura! I've missed the ramblings! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Welcome back to the blogosphere! You have been missed a lot!

    I just came back home from the Bon Jovi concert here in Munich and saw your link on twitter and had to read every entry on here immediately.

    On a regular non-Bon-Jovi-concert day this would have been the utmost highlight of my day but due to the concert it comes in a very close second place :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm so glad you're back. Please continue to write about makeup hauls or products you are loving right now. I'm so excited to read your blog. Welcome back! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love to see you're back!
    All time favorite blogger :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. OMG, I've missed you! Welcome back Laura :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love your pink metallic flats.

    I am pleased to see you back blogging again. Sometimes time away from things you like make you realize how much you really did truly like them (or perhaps not like them). Glad in your case you decided to give blogging another go.

    ReplyDelete
  67. So glad you're blogging again! I really did miss your opinions and advice and witty commentary - you are mainly responsible for my addiction to beauty blogs and my google reader just hasn't been the same since you left. When I saw you linked on Kelly's blog I couldn't believe I'd heard nothing about it before. I told my boyfriend, "lollipop is blogging again!!!" and even he said "yaaaaayyy!" :)

    Welcome back, I can't wait to read every word you write xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  68. Very happy to have you back :). Doubt my bank account will be as happy but such is life! xx

  72. I Know everyone is saying the same things about being so happy you are blogging again, but it is so TRUE, you have a unique style, you were the first youtuber I ever saw, and I was so said when you stopped, but knowing you will be blogging again is so exciting and I'll de looking uo for your new posts. I wish you the best of luck.

  83. Hey Laura, it is great to see you back.

    Can I just say that I was positively gutted when you stopped doing videos and blogging in your 'past life'. You had a way of expressing yourself and your passion for makeup in a way that was (and still remains) genuine, witty and of course fabulous. Unlike some of the other beauty bloggers out there who vary from cute to wacky to (frankly) irritating you stand out as a valid beauty and fashion commentator who is able to share her genuine passion in an articulate and accessible way. I'm sure so many others will agree with me.

    I wish you all the very best with the new blog Laura, I will be following it avidly x

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi Laura, am a complete newbie to your blog, and so far.....L.O.V.E it.
    You have a fresh approach and are really likeable! :D

    ReplyDelete
  85. Love the new blog Laura! Your rambles and hauls were my favorite part of your blog! Hope you are enjoying your new found approach!

    Ps I love the bag! You are my go to for bag inspiration :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. You're back-YAY!!!!!! I was hoping you'd get back around to blogging or videos or something. So nice to see you again, and I've missed your blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  93. So glad you're back, Laura! I am pretty much obsessed with that Sonia coat! Your posts tend to do that to me ;) What size did you get it in? We look to be about the same height/build. Thanks! xo
