My Own Secret Ceremonials.

Hello again!

This morning, I went charity shopping. I didn't find much except an old fur stole which is mentioned later on, and some very questionable Gucci boots, which I didn't buy as they had too many buckles and zips for me to even comprehend.. I also treated myself to some oil for my hair, this was a cheap version of the Moroccan Oil, but it has the words 'Moroccan Oil' on the bottle so I'm gonna go with it. As you can see from the photo above the ends of my hair are so crispy and dry (how much do you want to run your fingers through my hair right now, ey!?), so hopefully the oil will put a bit of moisture back into them. 

I wore my trusty boots, but I've also been eyeing up some heeled chelsea boots that were £19.50 in my local Tesco. I've seen them on a few bloggers but wasn't that taken by them until I tried them on. But now I have the Office ones... I don't know what to do. Should I just buy them too? They have a lovely heel size and are the right height on the ankle to wear with jeans or skirts, if I haven't given you enough reasons for buying them yet. Anyway, I stuck on this dress and layered up the jumper to add some colour. I'm trying to stear clear of all black as I've been wearing it a lot recently. The dress is one of my favourite go to items, it looks great layered up and I can wear it out with heels or just during the day with boots or brogues. 
This is the fur stole I bought for a lovely £2.50! Its faux fur by the way, just to point out, but I suppose next to the leather jacket, I'm being a hypocrite. My apologies. Anyway I've styled it here over my leather jacket. But I really wanted it to put over a camel pea coat I got from a charity shop, down south, before Christmas. So I will style that up before it gets too warm to wear both of the items!

Have you got any hints or tips for how to put moisture back into my hair? What do you usually buy from charity shops?
