Colour Refresh With Schwarzkopf Live Colour

Image
The whole red hair phase has lasted a very long time, I always dip between dark and brighter shades throughout the year. Now that it's getting a bit warmer and the weather is getting a bit better I thought I'd try and go a bit brighter and go for switch it up a bit. I'm quite particular with what products I use on my hair and especially when it comes to dye, I normally stick with what I know and love so for me I always feel really sceptical when I want to try something new.

But as a long lover of the Schwarzkopf Live Colour range, I really love the permanent dyes as someone who doesn't want to spend all their time dyeing their hair. It stays on for a good time and really makes an impact, but I wanted something to boost the colour in between dyes. I've bought all the colour boosting shampoos and masks and they work great but I always feel like after a while they lose their touch. So I decided to put my faith into the new Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Stay Bright Booste…

Flat Hunting What A Joy

Image
The closer we get to Summer, the closer I get to needing to get a flat sorted. Realistically I have months to sort this, but the anxious hopes to be organised bee that I am wants it all sorted as soon as. For me, I've dreamed of having my own place for a while, not even owning it but just getting my own space where I can live alone. It might sound like a weird want to some people but the day I get to live alone will be a glorious day.

With all this excitement and happiness comes a practical eye as well, I have to think about what I want and what I can afford. The less fun part is the afford bit as money doesn't grow on trees, well definitely not the trees I live by. At first I didn't have the clearest idea of everything that I would need to consider, but now after a bit of searching and a lot of lists (I want to do a whole blog post dedicated to just writing lists) I now have a better idea and I feel like I can give out some good advice on how to tackle the flat hunting and…

How To Wear A Statement Tee

Image
I love a good statement tee, I think they add a real edge to an outfit and if you don't like to go too out there with your outfits they can be a really nice touch. I like to really centre an outfit around a statement tee, whether it's dressing them up with the right jeans or pairing them with a skirt or overalls they just add something to the outfit. But I think at times it can be daunting to include them, especially if your outfit already includes a few other elements out of the ordinary. I thought I would show you a few ways I have styled the statement tees to go into my outfit. 

Usually, for me, I normally tuck them into pants or jeans, and for me, I like to wear pieces with a bit of edge to them. It makes your outfit more exciting and gives a focal point or at least a few focal points for people to look at. As someone who's always been self-conscious of people staring at me in the street, I came to the conclusion that I would rather have them staring at me whilst am in …

What Even Is Social Media Anymore

Image
I remember when Instagram was full of people taking photos and adding the old camera border to it (If you remember that let me know!) and since then it's changed so much, I think even at the smaller level social media in general changes so much each year and even each month. From the introduction to more features to even the layout, god helps Instagram if they try and change anything else. But the thing is with these changes to the apps and social media, comes changes to the content creators on there. 

I have had my blog's Instagram for 2 years now and it's really weird to think about. I scrolled back down to my first few posts the other day and it's so interesting to see the difference. I still use my bedding as the best background and it still has a fairly casual approach to it. Whether or not you think an Instagram should be professional or casual, mine has definitely changed over the years. But with that, my attitude on the whole social media thing has changed.

Let's Layer With Some Accessories for Under £10

Image
Accessories have grown on me more and more, I remember being a real hater of them. Not in a nasty way, I think it was more of a panic that I didn't know how to work them into what I wear without them clashing and the whole outfit looking like a mix match of stuff. And to some extent I feel like my outfits can be a mix match of things but there's some organisation to it and that's all that matters. I feel like accessories aren't scary once you break down and get an idea for what you like. I found that it's taken me a bit of time to include extras in, but if you just wanna stick with the basics am here to show you how to stay basic and step out of the comfort zone when you are ready. 

For me the jewellery is the best part of the accessory, I've always been a bit apprehensive about having a load of rings and piercings and necklaces and here I am with 4 rings, 10 piercings, and 2 necklaces I wear on a daily basis. So accessorising isn't something I'm necessa…

What's In Ya Birchbox

Image
I feel like this is such an old school post but after looking at it for years and weighing up all the pros and not really considering the cons I finally signed up for a Birchbox! I remember they were in for so long so many years ago and the world became filled with beauty box subscriptions. Now you can get fashion boxes, food boxes (Logs straight on to graze and gets a subscription box), and even Period boxes! There's a subscription box for everything and it was time I gave them a go. 

I'd love to see what the opinions are on these beauty boxes, for me I wanted to try one to see how it went as I know a lot of them to have customisation options whereas some are a random lot of products suited for you. I think being able to customise your box to what you want and will use was a key thing for me as I want to reduce waste and say au revoir to any products I won't have any real use for. 

With Birchbox and other subscription companies, they often ask you to fill out a short questi…

Am Giving Up On Love For A Bit

Image
In a few ways, it makes me sad to say that, it's a weird thing to announce but it's something I'm holding myself to. I did a post a good couple of months ago talking all about love the issues of not finding the right person and all that. But since then I've come to the conclusions that I don't think am looking for the right thing and finding someone isn't ideal for me right now. 

I deleted all the dating apps back in November and I had been speaking to someone and going on dates up until February. The day before Valentines in fact, then I asked if it would be going any further and got hit with the let's just be mates line. I struggled to shrug this off and carry on for a bit and at first, I thought oh it's natural it's happened before and I'll get over it soon. But there was something about different, I think because we had got so close to being something it felt like a ton of bricks had fallen on me, I got on with the person so well and I'd …
