Retail Royalty Challenge - Netherlands Dog Rescure

I've recently been taking part in the Money Supermarket Retail Royalty Challenge. The basic idea of the challenge is Money Supermarket give bloggers £30 to spend on a local charity of our choice.
Having just lost my beautiful dog, Pennie, the Netherlands Dog Rescue seemed like the obvious choice. The rescue is located close to where I live and they save dogs from being put to sleep in local dog pounds. So clearly it's a great cause. I emailed them to find out what items they would like to receive. They replied with dog toys and coats are always welcome.

As dog coats are quite expensive it limited what I could spend on toys, but here's what I bought -
I tried to buy packs with more than one item in them, but I think the fact that my dog Lyla has been trying to steal all of these toys is a good sign!

Then I bought this coat. I ordered it from online in a size XL. I assumed that like most dog clothing I've seen before XL wouldn't be all that XL, but this is huge! I'm so glad as it seems like most of the dogs at the dog rescue are large dogs. I hope this comes in handy during the winter months.

I genuinely hope these items make the dogs at the rescue giddy and warm.

Lexi wig from Wonderland Wigs


Ladies and gents (maybe), allow me to introduce you to the Lexi wig from WonderlandWigs.com.

As you can see, it's an absolutely gorgeous dark purple colour with a lovely lilac shade underneath it. It comes pre-styled in gorgeous loose curls and is perfect if you fancy the beach-look. It also features a finge/bangs which can be swept to either side or can just be kept in the middle if you so wish. 
The colour and style are just beautiful and so 'me' as I love dying my hair weird and wonderful colours. I've actually had my hair this colour before but it just never seemed to last as long as I'd like... now I can just throw on this wig if the moment takes me!
These wigs are made out of 100% Kanekalon synthetic fibre. Don't worry though! I know I've said the dreaded word 'synthetic', but you don't need to worry about these wigs looking shiny or or obviously fake. The fibre is soft, feels almost exactly like real hair and it has just the right amount of shine to allow you to get away with it.

So, if you're off out on a hen party and fancy some weird coloured hair OR if you just fancy a change, Wonderland Wigs is a great place to start... and better yet, the price! I've seen wigs that are terrible quality retail for more than these gems. This Lexi wig for example retails for only £25.99. Good, eh?

JustCurvy.com Peacock feather dress


I've been a big fan of high-low dresses for a while now, but I could never seem to find one that suited me so when I was offered the chance to review a dress from JustCurvy.com I jumped at the chance! I picked out this dress and I'm so glad that I did. The dress is by AX Paris, but is currently on sale on the Just Curvy site.

It's a gorgeous silky material with peacock feathers over it. The length at the back is perfect for me (I'm around 5'6"-ish, I think) and I love the high bit at the front because it's also a perfect length. It sits just bellow the knee with an underskirt a little higher. 

It's the perfect summer dress for those who fancy something a little bit different to maxi dresses. Having worn this in the sun, I can confirm that it's lovely and cool in the heat.

Here's my OOTD video featuring the dress -
