MY:LOOK

After promising to get back into blogging, it's not happened, although I have been fashion tweeting like crazy (find me at _JustMeeDee_). Work, life and the damn British weather have meant no outfit posts, but I thought I'd post a few bits I've bought recently, which will (Hopefully) appear in outfit posts as soon as it stops raining and being like a tornado outside!

I don't know how other Manchester bloggers do it!!

I'm Back........ And Feeling Inspired!!

After a year long hiatus, I've decided to start blogging again. Since being back in the UK after living in Cape Town, real life took over, and I lost my spark for blogging. I was uninspired by my wardrobe and fashion in general, and kind of questioned why I was blogging. Was it to get followers? Get noticed? Get acclaim? So I stopped.

What I've come to think in the last few months is that I blog because I like it. I love fashion and love talking about it.  If people want to read it great, if not, it's an outlet for me to be creative whilst I'm not working in the fashion industry.  I don't know if it's going to Fashion Week, or I've it's the change in season, but I feel really excited and inspired by fashion at the moment. I'm loving all the new ranges in store and online, and have spent loads of time recently outfit planning, customising and experimenting,  which I feel like I've not done in ages. I feel in a different head space, and want to record that.

And so, Just Mee Dee is back. I'm not going to tie myself in knots about daily posts, cool outfits and number of followers, I'm just going to take my time and write about stuff I love.

My blogs going to have a face lift in terms of design and content, so if you're reading this, thank you. I have no idea why people want to read anything about lil old me, but thank you and I hope you enjoy!

Keep an eye out for what's next!

Bloglovin me please!!

Thank god for Twitter! During yesterday's #bbloggers chat, the lovely Gemma Satire told me about Google Reader closing, and how everyone must now move to Bloglovin. I don't like to make appeals for followers, I'm just glad anyone even took the time to read my irregular ramblings in the 1st place, but I would appreciate if all my lovely followers would follow me on Bloglovin too.
And how do I do that with all of the 100s of blogs I subscribe to I hear you ask? Well just follow the instructions in this link and everything will be transported to Bloglovin.

Hopefully, I'll see you on the Bloglovin side, and you will continue to share my life as Just Dee!

Back with Avengance

The past few weeks have been manic!  We moved back into our new house properly at weekend (after me spending a week cleaning and unpacking) and then I started my new job on Monday, so all in all a little stressful, but a good enough reason to me MIA from blogging.  I'm hoping I can get back into it on a more regular basis now I'm back at my own house (with access to all my clothes and shoes which have been in my Dad's loft for the past year!), although I my tripod has been lost in the abyss of moving so I'll either have to get J to take pics or continue with my Iphone ones for the moment.
Now that I'm back in the land of employment, my thoughts move to shopping!!  I've not had a huge shop for so long so I'm counting down the days til next Friday when I receive my 1st pay check in over a year!  J is happy he doesn't have to fund me anymore and I can't wait to get my independence back.  I know that next Saturday when I start my much looked forward to trawl of the shops of Manchester that I won't be able to find anything I want as that’s just Sod's Law, so the online trawling has already started.  Some friends get married on 1st June so I NEED a new outfit.  I had a black dress in my head and ordered this from River Island, which I thought would look great with some glitter shoes and bag I have already (obviously having no money has made me really frugal!)




But I've just seen this beauty from Frank and Doll online and I'm now torn!



Help!!  Which one do you think is best?  Sleek and classic or bright and summery?

MY VIEW: Topshop Celestial Nail Polish

I saw this polish in a magazine last week and have been waiting to get to a Topshop to buy it since. It's a gorgeous matte pale blue colour which will look great over spring/summer. I'm normally a much brighter colour polish girl, but I must say I think this has turned into my fave after having it in my nails for all of 2 minutes! It goes on really easily, and even after 1 coat, creates a lovely colour. These pics don't do it justice (apologies I'm below a light as I couldn't wait to talk about it!) and this looks a lot brighter than the actual polish. I'm impressed!
I decided to go with a contrast nail in a bright turquoise, using Essence Colour and Go: Let's Get Lost, which I think works well. This is a trend I'm loving at the moment and have been doing a lot recently, but I really like these colours together.

Wednesday Want Number 13 - Brits Fever

This is my 1st Wednesday Want of 2013, as with 1 thing and another I've either had other posts, been too manic to post at all or in all honesty tried to avoid shopping at all as I've had no money to spend!

Tonight is the Brits and I'm so excited.  Most people find it cheesy, but it reminds me of being at uni in Glasgow and me and my housemate Anto made such a big thing of it one year, that for the next few years, we travelled between London and Manchester to watch it together, usually involving wine!  I know we'll be texting each other tonight all through the show, to gossip!

Therefore, I thought my Wednesday want HAD to be red, white and blue themed in honour of my fave TV night of the year.  Let me know what you think of the Brits... is it just me who gets ridiculously excited................. or is it my strange (and very wrong) crush on Harry Styles which is making me heady with excitement this year?!?!?



These shoes as actually a cheat as they're more like a "Wednesday already ordered and on their way!".  I came across this site when my dad mentioned it to me cos he'd heard of it mentioned on TV.  Spurred on by the fact I might actually be able to afford something (its called everything£5), I was online as quick as a flash and was AMAZED!!  Some of the shoes are awesome, I ordered these and the black pair (here).  I have no ideas what the quality will be like, but for £5 you can't really complain, plus they've got sskulls on so I love them!!




I'm in love with this asos dress (here).  I  saw a girl wearing it on Saturday night and actually asked here where it was from I love it that much!  It also comes in black and red and is only £40.  The white would be perfect for summer, but I think I'll get it in black (surprise, surprise), as I've ggot a hen do next month and a weddding in June, and I think it'll look great for either.  Plus, being back in the UK means being reaqcuainted with all my shoes and handbags so it'll be like 2 whole new outfits at a fraction of thr price!!

 
I love Virgos Lounge and was amazed to see some of the most beautifully embellished dresses and tops in the 1/2 price sale.  This dress (here) is only £25, which to me seems a steal as the material and detail aree beautiful.  I also love the colour.  I don't normally wear blue unless its on my bottom half or denim as it makes my skin look really sallow, but this is gorgeous.
