TO BE OR NOT TO BE




Coat: Vintage
Ruffle Blouse: Beyond Retro
Bag: UNIF

Hey sassy people! Sorry it's been such a long time since I posted an outfit on here :( I feel like many of us have lost our blogging mojos but I have so much to thank my blog for that I don't want to give up on it yet! You can keep up with my outfits more regularly on my Instagram: @helibells or Snapchat: helenajlc 

How fab are these philosophical vintage Iceberg trousers which I 'borrowed' (may not give back) from my biz Sassy World. Ideally I wanted to wear some sort of gold shoe or ankle boots with this ensemble but alas I am skintos and cannot find any that meet my 0p budget hahaha. 

I hope to be back again soon <3 xxx

WONDER WOMAN





Hey guys! A slightly different post to normal today but just wanted to share this little shoot with you all <3

This is my 60 year old mum, Anne AKA my real life Wonder Woman! As some of you may know she was widowed a couple of years ago after my step dad passed away from cancer. She herself also had a small scare with breast cancer aged 39 after they found cancerous cells during a breast reduction. The doctors told her the best option was to have a mastectomy and then have a breast implant put in a year after to even her back out. However the last few years the implant has had some complications, causing her a lot of discomfort whenever she exercises (she swims alot) so she decided to have the implant taken out.

So here she is, 4 days post-operation wearing her bandages with pride (and relief) and looking fabulous as ever! I wanted to sass her up and do a mini photoshoot to make her feel good and to also mark the end of an era and she said she's more than happy for me to share it. Despite all she's been through she still manages to brighten up every room she enters and is just an all round WONDER WOMAN!

I hope in some way this can inspire someone. Maybe someone who's also had a mastectomy, or someone who's lost a partner or maybe it could just be a light hearted reminder to us females that getting older doesn't have to be grey and boring!

ASOS PARTYWEAR/IT'S MY BIRTHDAY


Cow Choker: Made by me
Cow Skirt: Vintage
Boots: ASOS





Heyyyy party people, it's my birthday today! Currently wondering where the time has gone as I can't believe I've suddenly become 24 years old?! WTF, I legit still feel about 18. 

The lovely guys at Access All ASOS contacted me and asked me to put together a fun party outfit I would wear over the Christmas period and here it is! Obviously there was going to be rainbow sequins and bright faux fur involved right?! I'm showing my age here now but you can't beat a pair of comfy shoes to go out in so I teamed it with my favourite bright blue ASOS boots. Also, how insane are the Jump from Paper bags? They blow my mind every time I see them with their optical illusion skills. 

I've also put together a little wishlist to show you guys my favourite sassy ASOS partywear picks! Dying over the sequin fringed dress <3

Clockwise:

CONFETTI CROWD Q&A



Hey guys! Long time no blog :( I have a few blog posts coming up very soon though so keep an eye out <3

Confetti Crowd has been together for nearly a year now and we felt it's time to post more content on our Youtube. I don't know about you but I'm becoming much more inclined to watch youtube videos rather than read blogs these days. I feel like YT, Snapchat and Instagram are killing off blogs! What do you guys think?

We kicked our channel off with a Q&A video after asking for questions on our insta (@confetticrowd) and we had so much fun filming it! We are planning on doing lots more videos so feel free to leave suggestions of what we could do :) Hope you enjoy it! x

Top: Motel Rocks
Sheer Dress: Somewhere Nowhere





Reppin' a whole lotta lilac and LAMODA in today's blog post. Two of my favourite things <3

How fabulous are these trousers made by my megababe Emma from Duvet Days?! Emma kindly made me a matching top too! I know I've worn this sheer dress to death on my blog but it really is the perfect layering tool. I NEED one in every colour <3

Sunglasses: Vintage
Skirt: Vintage



How insanely fabulous is this vintage colour block jacket from Vulgar?! It happens to go oh so well with a new building local to me with different colour windows so obvs had to go and make the most of this photo opportunity!

I don't think I'll ever get sick of cow print, it's such a good monochrome print for clashing all my bright vintage with. I'm currently painting an old pair of jeans cow print, 5 fabric paint pots later and they're still not finished but I'm sure they'll make an appearance on here or my instagram (@helibells) very soon.
