What I Wore Wednesday: NotBlondeHusband's birthday

Last week was NotBlondeHusband's birthday! The lucky birthday boy got two dinners out but I of course forgot to take a picture on his first night but I did manage to get him to take a photo on his actual birthday before we went to Scott's in Troon. If you've not been before and you are in Ayrshire I totally recommend it as it has amazing views of the harbour.




I'm still in a bit of a funk so I focused more on my hair than anything else and attempted to try and make it something other than just straight and hanging there. The last time I used my curling tong I gave myself a nasty burn on my eyebrow so I'm pretty happy I ended up with sorta cute hair and no major injuries this time!



Ruffled Black Top- HM
The Flirt Jeans-Old Navy
Swarovski Tennis Bracelet
Black Sparkly Flats-Chinese Laundry

I've always really liked Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt's hair where it is loosely curled at the ends so this is my vague attempt at that. Not perfect but not that bad!  I normally complain that NBH will only take one photo of me each week; well this week he went all paparazzi on me and the result is what you see below.



We had a really nice dinner out (a new Cars magazine, colour changing Ramón and iPhone apps thanks for entertaining Blondie Boy) and the birthday boy was even treated to a sparkling fountain in his Baked Alaska! I'm not sure which boy enjoyed it most!

I think your hair turned out great---I really want to try it, but my hair is so thick that just thinking about all that curling makes me exhausted.

Top is gorgeous, as is hair, I can just about manage the Babylis big hair, curling tongs are out of my league but the result is so impressive I should give it another go.

PS I've managed to use the wrong user name on my link. Last week when I did exactly the same thing there was a little x by my name but not this week! It's no big deal but if you are able to edit it to Belfast Mummy I would be super grateful. Otherwise just leave it and it will be a reminder to me to not be so thick next week :) Thank you and sorry!

hey chica, love the hair. I haven't curled mine in ages, but once it grows out a bit I do love a good wavy look. Besides, it's easier to maintain! 

Helen said...

Love the hair!!! 
(Jealous, Baked Alaska is my favourite pudding!)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! It is NBH's favourite dessert too!

Melaina25 said...

You rocked some awesome curls at the Mads! My Mom has curly hair so she never taught me how to curl mine-- I'm just learning how!

Melaina25 said...

I asked for a big barrelled curling iron one year for Christmas and my MIL got me the wand thingy---I was intimidated and didn't use it for a year but I'm getting used to it now!

Storm In A K Cup said...

I love that top! Now I know you're a BBM too (Big Boobed Mama) I'll be stalking these threads for tips! Gem x

Melaina25 said...

I think my days of being compared to celebs are over! Although my step-Mom used to insist I looked like Hayden Paniterre from Heroes?!?!?!

Thanks Lauren! I'm trying my best to learn how to curl my hair :)

Have you tried the no heat curls? Might work better on thicker hair!

You always want the opposite of what you have right?
