Personal: The launch of Sian in Southsea

Welcome to Sian in Southsea, formally Miss Dolly gal.

I said in a post a few weeks ago that I felt I had out grown my old blog and have been working to create Sian in Southsea since then.  I feel really inspired by where I live and my focus from now on will be more on local events and my personal life.  As I said in that post, nothing is changing as far as beauty and fashion is concerned, my posts will just have a lot more variety so I can post about what I want, without restrictions.

I hope you all stay with me, even if you don't live in Southsea.

Lots of love,
Sian x

Clothes: Outfits I have worn

I love Claire's instagram outfits each day so I've cheekily borrowed her idea of showing the clothes rather than being in the outfit. This makes life much easier, I'm too shy to pose for outfit pics and mirror pics never show the outfit properly. It also means I re-create an outfit at any time, quickly.
I'll stop rambling now and get on with it!

I'm still working on my blog changes, I've had a few delays but hopefully I should be able to get my domain and name change sorted soon. Out of interest, how important do you think a .com is compared to a

Blog lovin!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I thought I'd set up blog lovin since I cannot find anyway to fix my GFC. It's because blogger changed my URL to but I cannot find how to change my GFC URL to If anyone knows how, please let me know!

Clothes: Been shopping

1. men's large Mickey mouse T-shirt, £6 Primark
2. Scarf print blouse, £9 Matalan
3. Hot pink hair extensions £1 each Primark

I went shopping on Thursday after work and realised it had been a long time since I shared my buys with you. Really cheap buys due to lots of going out this month but buying anything always makes me smile.

I mentioned the T-shirt and blouse in yesterday's post, love both and I should have worn both by Sunday so I shall post outfit pictures.

The hair extensions also deserve their own post. I now own a blue set and a baby pink set and am so, so impressed with them. They add a crazy pop of colour to my hair which is perfect for my fickle mind.

Personal: Weekend fun & likes/dislikes 002

Wrist wear:cat sitting:Best friend
Wedding posing:kids ride:bracelet
Soldier dress:blue hair:breakfast
Club stamp:nude nails:daisy chain

A few photos from my phone and instagram from the last few weekends. They mainly consist of comedy going out photos and home made bracelets, I'm not sure what that says about me.
I'm back to work after a lovely long weekend which is horrible however, loving the fact that it's Friday tomorrow already!

I'm going to a 30th birthday party on Saturday and I bought a new blouse to wear to it today. I'd had my eye on it for a while and when I went to buy it today, it was half price! Love that. I'm going to post a haul tomorrow including it. I'll finish with some likes/dislikes from the past week


001. Men's tshirts. I got one in Primark today. Cheap and far better prints than women's.
002. Friendship bracelets. I found some embroidery thread in Wilkinsons and now can't stop making my own bracelets. I find it very therapeutic.
003. Disneyland Paris. Potentially planning a trip for the end of November. Über excited.


001. Rain, rain go away.
002. Long fringe. Need a trim.
003. End of TOWIE and MIC. I love reality tat tv. At least Geordie Shore is back at the end of the month!

Victorious Vintage day 1

Some photos from yesterday's free vintage event at Portsmouth dockyard. It's day 2 today and completely free. If you've not been yet, I suggest going down there today. Here's some photos of the event.

There are plenty of lovely stalls to look at, mainly locally based, lots of nice food to munch upon (I hear the crepes are fantastic) and 2 stages of life music.

I had planned on going today and starting my Portsmouth street style photography but my hangover got the better of me and so I've stayed in bed all day!

This was a fantastic event in Portsmouth and hopefully it'll be turned into an annual event. It's certainly something I would go to each year.

Victorious Vintage and Jubilee nails nail

This weekend, my mum and I are going to Victorious Vintage at Portmouth's historic dockyards. It's a completely free event including bands, vintage clothing stalls, tea and vintage make overs. If you live in the Portsmouth area, I would strongly recommend you take a visit. I shall be wondering about taking photos for my new Portsmouth street style feature so say hello if you see me.

In the spirit of things I also thought I'd get involved in doing Jubilee themed nails. Here's a quick tutorial on each nail.
I love them. Part of me wishes that I'd done the little finger with a different pattern but I quite like the clashing/matching contrast.

001.Anchor-base coat of Barry M Cobalt blue, white nail art polish and I drew the anchor using black liquid eyeliner
002.The leopard print is done the Gem Fatale way, using Barry M White, Cobalt blue and Chanel Dragon.
003. Base of Chanel Dragon and Barry M white dotted using a dotting tool. You can get these really cheaply on EBay.
004. Base of Cobalt Blue, a star using a white nail art polish and then another star on top with a red nail art polish.

Apart from Victorious Vintage, I don't have much else planned for the long weekend. I might take Graham out for food at some point, there's a New York style steak house called Yonkers that I've just discovered and want to try.
I Hope everyone has a great weekend.
