UB Goes Scouse

This weekend saw me travel north with friends as a guest of Diamond Jive's for their Rockabilly night.

Diamond Jive who my friend Lisa dances with are based in Shoreditch, London and along with a local friend held a day and night of dance classes and Rockabilly bands at Camp and Furnace in the heart of Liverpool's docks area.

I don't think I have worn a cut-off top and exposed my tummy since I was 12 years old, but I fell in love with the Hell Bunny Vixen 'Candy' skirt and 'Hula' top so just had to give it a go.

My first attempt at a reverse manicure using Barry M's Gelly Nail Effects in Lychee and Blood Orange.
On Sunday we had a lovely wonder around Liverpool's centre in the sunshine visiting a few vintage shops. I would love to go back so that I could explore the city further.

On Saturday night, my dance club hosted their annual social dance, 'Grables' giving us a chance to don our glad rags and bust out lots of the moves we've being learning.
What a night it was, a total sell out and I finally got a chance to meet the lovely Charlotte.

Here's what I wore -

Dress - Holly Willoughby at Very.com
Shoes - New Look

I set my hair in pin curls for the first time, Wasn't 100% happy with them, but practise makes perfect!

My new original 1950's handbag, that still doesn't have a name yet ;) got her first outing.

I've only gone and jumped on the Ombré hair wagon!

I've been growing my hair for a while and was starting to tire of it, feeling it was time for a change. So I decided to give my red hair a boost and have the ends a copper Ombré. My hair was stripped of its old colour so it's now needing a bit of TLC and good aftercare to get it back to its good condition.

Old colour

Hair stripped of its old colour, looking rather ginger. It was quite a striking colour on me.

New hair colour and Ombré ends

Hope that you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.
