WEARING | Nothing To Wear

Hiii,
So it's been rather a while since I've done an outfit post but unfortunately since (partly) furnishing my flat I've now no space to take decent outfit posts! But finally I've found a lovely friend who was more than happy to brave the cold with me to take some outfit snaps (also filmed for my yt channel). Was a lot colder than I anticipated which is why I stupidly braved the velvet dress near the beach aha! 

I just love velvet in the winter so I threw on this rather old Topshop dress that I've had for a few years now and teamed it with this jumper I recently picked up in NewLook. I'm not usually one for slogan tee's or jumpers but this one just grabbed my attention so I have the tee version too aha!
Jacket is also from NewLook as are the boots which I picked up a while back on Black Friday so the jacket was a steal at £11 something haha! It is rather thin but that just makes it perfect for layering and the hood is so snug and warm! I have a feeling this is going to last me the year living on the Island with our awful weather.

(Apologies for the windswept hair, think the wind was trying to take us down!)

Hair | Pastel Pink Hairrr



(pink hair after 3 weeks)

Hii,
Been a while I know, life has got in the way. Last year was pretty tough for me (personal reasons) but I want to get back into blogging and youtube properly again, So to start this year here is an old post I didn't get around to posting. I did of course upload the video to my YouTube channel a month ago but didn't get around to uploading it to here, so here it is! 

I get bored easily with my hair (as you may have guessed by now) and I recently started working with the Matrix range in my salon. To achieve pastel hair I usually opt for a pot of directions dye and mix with a white conditioner. Yet these Matrix colours have become a new favourite but unfortunately they don't come in a wide range of colours so I do still opt for a pot of directions if I fancy mint or blue hair. Matrix colorgraphics works more or less the same way. You add desired amount of colour (in this case pink/magenta) then either add their tube of clear to pastelise it or in this case as I was at home it was easier for me to grab my trusty conditioner and get going!

So quick and easy to apply then wait half and hour and wash off! Good to go!
All these semi-permanent colours they say to apply to towel dried shampooed hair, however, in my case my hair is so fine and soft it would only last 1-2 washes! Instead of the usually 8-12, so I always apply to shampooed, dried hair. That was my cuticles are open to accept the colour in but dry enough to grab to it as my hair is just too silky even damp/towel dried so it just doesn't grab! 


Hope this is useful for you ladies! I did however get bored before Christmas and switched my hair up again aha! This time I couldn't decide which colour to go for so went for my 3 favourites! Pink, lilac and mint!



(First attempts)


(Re-fresh before Christmas day)

Let me know if you want a tutorial but it's pretty easy!

HAIR | Oh Haiii Mermaid Hair...






 Hair Extension ~ FoxyLocks

Can we just take a moment to admire my floral crown...

 Floral Crown ~ Crown and Glory 

Hiii,
So if you keep updated with my instagram and whatnot you'll know I've recently started wearing hair extensions again. I've had these for a few months now but only recently decided it was that time again, time to become a mermaid. I absolutely love this brand of hair extensions which I purchased from Foxy Locks. I've used them a few times before and always go back to them as they are of such high quality of hair. 
I kinda want to purchase a second pair to dipdye turquoise like I did a couple years back and become a real mermaid but this will have to do for now aha!

Also filmed a video over on my YouTube channel on how I clip my extensions in and style them. Hope this helps as I've received a ton of messages on them recently.

Hii lovelies,
So I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend and were just as lazy as me! I decided to sit around and play about with makeup all afternoon and came up with this after some inspiration from watching one of my favourite youtubers update video's Augusta Jeorgia (found here). I played about with my makeup and came up with something very similar. I don't tend to wear colour on my waterline/bottom lash line, so it was something different for me but also very quick and easy.
Hope you like it!

WEARING | YourEyesLie


Hiii,
So I just thought I would blog my outfit of the day seeing as I wasn't up to anything special but thought I'd take some snaps anyway. I bought this top off the gorgeous blogger Amy Valentine some time last year and it's just so easy to throw on and team with pretty much anything. I also found the giant 'sad face' rather appropriate for my cbt session I had that day as I hadn't been feeling great recently and the top pretty much sums that up aha! My therapist found it rather amusing too haha!
