Aussome Volume party – 60s style!

Posted in Blogging, Daily Outfits.

I’m a little late reporting back on this wonderful event, which took place in Manchester a few weeks ago. If you want to see a photo of me in ridiculously large velcro rollers, you need to read on!

As an official Aussie Angel, I was delighted when the lovely ladies at Aussie invited me to my first event – the Aussome Volume party. The theme was 60s Motown, and what better way to celebrate massive hair than with a wicked beehive!

Here are a few snaps from the night… some of my own and some pinched from Aussie.


I wore my favourite vintage-style silk blouse from Max C (which our stylist Amber absolutely loved), H&M jeans and my thrifted Topshop heels. 

My sister-in-law to be Jenn and my bestie Clare were my guests

The party in full swing. Shola Kaye kept us entertained with songs from the 60s and we drank French Martinis, Rasberry Belinis and a rum concoction I can’t quite remember the name of!

Rocking my new ‘do! I LOVED my hair – my fab stylist Amber was great and the style was really easy to achieve. She told me I should seriously consider an undercut with volume on top… we shall see!

I had an absolutely amazing time with the Aussie girls and my fellow Angels, including the lovely Phoebe, who I’ve been wanting to meet for ages. Aussie really did think of everything, and as a Northern blogger who often misses out on London-based events, it was fab to have something just for us. Can’t wait for the next one – more Belinis please!



Hehe look at you in the curlers! The end result is lovely on you, you going to try it yourself?

Love those Topshop shoes.

Guess what, I’ve just been invited to go to the Colour Mate party on Saturday. Yayyyyyyy! so excited!!



Oh fantastic, Amber’s such a great hairdresser, I saw her do some *amazing* beehives at the London event! Glad you had a great time, it looks so fun!
