Girl-e obsessions

RuPaul's Drag Race
I love it when I get around to watching something and it's great and there are 5 seasons of it on Netflix. That's rainy winter nights sorted! RuPaul is great - funny and sweet and fierce and full of charisma. I've only watched the first season so far and I loved all the queens who were competing. It was lots of fun. Now, may the best woman win!


Alterations
I love the idea of rejuvenating old favourites with some alterations - it's a great way of updating your wardrobe for less cash. I've got some plans in the works for a coat and a sweater, so I'll post once they're complete.

Sequins
Actually, I've been obsessed with sequins since I was about 6 years old, but I finally bought a Markus Lupfer sweater, so I have a fabulous expression of that obsession. I'd had Markus Lupfer on my wish list for a few years, but I've not wanted/couldn't pay full price, so I waited for the sales. Unfortunately, I always held out for the sweaters to go down to half price, which never happened because they always sold out. This year I settled for 40% off. I have another sweater with a sequin image on it, but the difference! With the rich tones used, and the sheer number of colours, the little fawn on my Markus Lupfer sweater is like a work of art. Mine is now sold out, but you can still get sale sweaters at Matches, Flannels, ASOS, My-Wardrobe, Net-a-Porter, and bizarrely, Amazon.

My home
We moved into our current flat back in April (not our choice of timing! Our landlord went bankrupt and had to sell the flat) and with a two month old baby, limited funds, and trying to squeeze belongings from a relatively large flat into a relatively small one means we've had to make do with some major disorganisation. Basically, the place just doesn't look the way I want it to. I need to replace cushion covers, hang artwork, get new book cases, get rid of yet more stuff, and do a bit more baby proofing. Home blogs are always good for inspiration. Some of the ones I'm following now are:

Design Sponge
Bright Bazaar
A Beautiful Mess
Nicolette Mason - not really a blog about decor, but she does cover it at times, and her home is really inspiring.
What's Blogging My View - thought it hasn't been updated since August
This is Glamorous

That's not many, I know it's only scratching the surface. If you know of any other good ones - share!

My hair
I know how that sounds, but I hadn't gotten a hair cut in over a year. I finally got one just before Christmas and it transformed my hair. I actually like it for the first time in years. I have body and fullness. I recently moved so I changed salons (I used to go to James Dun House in the City Centre, but now that I'm back in the West End I needed to change). I now see Caroline at Cresswell and Co. She's great, and there's no pressure to buy product. In fact, she even told me I don't need to use conditioner. She listened to what I wanted and did a fantastic job. So, now that I like my hair, I decided to treat myself to some ridiculously expensive product. I bought Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe. I had a voucher at Space NK as well, so it was £10 off.

So, now, I'm thinking about the colour. Since I have put it up pretty much every day until my recent hair cut, I hadn't noticed how dark it had gotten. I don't like the colour anymore, so I'm considering home colouring. I'm worried though, because I have fine hair, that it will damage it too much. What to do? I can't decide. So I have to mull. Hence, obsessed. Feel free to weigh in on this. Any of you who have fine hair that you've lightened, let me know how it went.
