2012? I'll drink to that.


Okay, okay it's slightly late but let's be honest most people continue to say those words right up until the end of January so I think I'm okay.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I spent my NY away this year. I've said for years I want to get out of London and I finally did. 3 of my best friends and I went to Frankfurt for a few days to party hard and see the sights. (More of Frankfurt to come in the next post!).

2011 was a good year. I celebrated my 25th birthday in Vegas, went to Berlin, got muddy at Lovebox festival, met some absolutely INCREDIBLE ladies at Plus London and These Girls Turn Heads got its feet well and truly off the ground and I got to work with a couple of exciting brands. There's a lot more in the pipeline for the blog in 2012 and I can't wait to get some of it off the ground. I'm so pleased that my readership has grown and the relationships I've built through blogging. And yes, like a lot of you, one of my MANY resolution iss to blog more. You girls (and boys) that have full time jobs and still manage to blog everyday I seriously bow down to you!

So, here's what I wore today. I bought this dress in the ASOS sale and originally wanted to wear it for Christmas Eve but ASOS sent me the wrong one. (I'm starting to think the people behind the ASOS Here To Help twitter page actually think I'm mental as I'm always moaning about something - it's not me though I swear!) to be fair to them their customer service is outstanding and I've always had my issues resolved quickly. This dress was only £21.50 and today is the first time I've worn it. I did take it to Frankfurt but it never made an appearance. I was slightly dubious as it's not from ASOS Curve and I thought it may be a bit tight but it fit! There is an elasticated waist though ;) I love the retro chain print on this and the pussy bow, although I do feel ever so slightly like a Secretary.

I wore my new Aran cardigan over the top which was a gift all the way from Ireland! It's the warmest and cosiest item of clothing ever and so soft! I'm pretty sure people who saw me today thought I was absolutely mental not wearing a coat but I just don't like them! I know that sounds weird but I just don't think coats look great on me. Give me a blazer or a cardigan any day.

This big brown stone ring cost me €1 in Frankfurt! I bought it in green as well.
