As I have likely mentioned before, I am a dedicated pizzasister4lyfe. I found the hashtag on Instagram mid last year, joined the fun, and never looked back.
For those who are not aware, the pizzasisters4lyfe are all about 3 things, self love, body positivity, and of course, pizza!
One of my fellow sisters decided to arrange a meet up in London for any UK pizzasister who wanted to attend. At first I thought to myself, being north east based, that I couldn’t possibility attend. But then, niggles of what if started to worm their way in, and I considered that maybe, just maybe, I actually could.
So I went to the Megabus website, and looked up ticket prices. To get two overnight buses would cost me a grand total of £13, with a 50p booking fee.
Decision made…London baby here I come!
I was left with a massive dilemma…what on earth would I wear?
As it is, Friday 23rd January was my pay and bonus day. I had arranged to get my hair cut, and decided to hit the shops for a new dress.
I acquired this dress from New Look, on sale for a very very reasonable £11.
On the hanger, I must admit I wasn’t blown away with this dress. But I thought the neckline was interesting, and the print is definitely up my street so I added it to the items I picked up to try on.
I fell in love immediately with it once on. The fit was perfect. I love a skirt with a little bit of kick out, and this piece does that perfectly. The material feels good on the skin; and the neckline is very interesting with the mesh. I was worried that too much of my bra would be on show, but that wasn’t the case.
Once I picked up the dress, I headed to the hairdressers and lost around half of my hair.
Just look at it all on the floor!
Oh my it’s sooooooooo red!
One hair cut later, I looked like this:
I love my hair at this length. I especially love how it sits above my shoulders at the back.
So, I arrived in London at 7am on Saturday 24th, tired but ready to take on the day. Here I in the toilets of Victoria Train Station (classy to the end!), changed into my outfit.
I teamed the dress up with the following items:
- Skater Dress: Size 24, New Look, £11 (on sale here)
- Pink Fluffy Cardigan: Size 20, Primark, £12
- Black Leggings, Size 26, Simply Be, £8 (available here)
- Black sneakers, Size 8, Primark, £7
I had an amazing time in London. I met 5 of my sisters and we went for pizza, of course!
I didn’t get home until 9am on Sunday morning, and promptly crashed for a few hours into a deep sleep. I had an absolute blast though and would happily do it all again!
Here I am at 5am in McDonald’s in Newcastle city centre, waiting for the first bus back home on Sunday morning. For 5am in the morning, I don’t look too bad!
Til next time,
