What's So Wrong With Black & Brown?

Jumper: h&m

Shoes: Primark
Bag: c/o Marc B

Thomas bought me the Marc B Olivia bag for christmas last year and I love it like a child, so obvs when I was asked if I wanted to feature one of their bags on here I said yes! I chose the Capesthorne style as I like the "preppyness" (that word makes me feel like AC Slater) and love the size, it's perfect for work but not so big that it'd look out of place in a supermarket. Hmm that makes me sound old, please exchange supermarket for a hip n' fashionable store.
I'm not too sure if all Marc B bags have a leopard print inside but both of mine do and I think it makes the smart style a little more, er.. fun? If a bag can be fun, if it was a human it'd be one of those wacky office professionals that shouts with glee: "You don't have to be mad to work here but it helps!"

Changing the subject but I'm getting really impatient with my hair, it's still damaged and won't seem to grow past the dreaded shoulder length slump it seems to be in at the moment. I know masks are a godsend for nourishing dry and wrecked tresses but I'm just too impatient, plus it's getting cold now and I don't like sitting around with damp hair for too long. Does anyone have any recommendations for a product that does something similar on a much quicker timescale?

And that's me done for today. I instagrammed some crumpets earlier. Follow me whydoncha? I go by the name of imeloweez

  1. The bag looks lovely, I really need a new large bag after getting rid of my ollie & nic one because of wear and tear.

  3. Nothing wrong with black and brown at all! And yeah the bag is really preppy, good choice, I like it. Never tried them but why not try those hair and nail vitamins? Doubt they'd grow hair very much but might help with the health! x

  8. Liking the bag, love the colour!

    I got my long hair back into health (after years of too many highlights and daily straightening!) by only washing it twice a week, no more. I use Batiste dry shampoo in between. I brush my hair as little as possible. I only straighten or use heat tools probably once a week now, I have cuts every 8-10 weeks and have just started using Tresemmé keratin range (it's in a red bottle) - the conditioner, shampoo and heat spray. I use pure coconut oil on the ends as a serum, and I've given up the colouring - I've learned to love my mousy blonde natural colour!

    It's taken a while but my hair is finally in good health, and its past my bust and keeps growing! (Whereas it used to just break once it got past the shoulders). I've been really impressed with the new Tresemmé stuff in particular, that leaves your hair so so soft.

    Hope that helps! :-)

  13. I love that bag its gorgeous and perfect for eveyday wear :)

    I'd try macadamia oil on your ends, its fab for nourishing and stops breakage, also herbal essences split end masks and leave in cream work wonder for my hair, i think its one of the best conditioners out there, better than aussie.

  14. Do you use moroccan oil? I use a fake one (by a company called organix, I think, whatever, it was £6 instead of £30), and it makes my hair softer, so I reckon it couldn't exactly hurt xxx

  17. There is shampoo/conditioner that will get you hair grower faster- it is called FAT. For real. But I've never tried it before. My short haired friend used it and bang, her hair is like shoulder lengths for after few months! Worth it I reckon

  18. Massive fan of marc b bags! The ones I have also have the leopard print inside, its their trademark I think! xx

  19. That bag is GORGEOUS! I haven't used their handbags but I did have a purse for a while which had leopard print on the inside :) love it!

    I find oil treatments and Philip Kingsley Elasticizer are a god send for helping damaged hair xx

  20. PS. I have heard good things about the Skin Hair and Nails supplement tables you can get in Holland and Barrett, might be worth a try too? xx

  21. Nothing wrong with black and brown - one of my fave colour combos! My hair doesn't get much longer than shoulder length, my hairdresser said I needed to have more regular trims, maybe that may help? x

  22. Oooh, I love that bag! Might have to put it on my Christmas list, it's lovely :) I had a Marc B bag a few years ago (for about a day, I overfilled it, snapped the handle and then returned it) and that had a leopard print lining too.
    I think black and brown looks fine together. Fuck the haters!
