Typical British Weather

Ive have not alot to blog about today due to the gloomy rain day i have been having! So it looks like it is a night for running a Lush bubble bath and slobbering myself in body butter. I might even apply some fake tan thats if i can be bothered with the 'curry' scented smell. Hopefully tomorrow is a sunny day as i was planning on walking the dogs so hopefully it stays nice and dry.

Mixing it up!

Today i felt very creative as the gloomy British weather was really starting to get to me so i thought it was about time i added a splash of colour to my nails! The bright hot pink is NYC Faithful Fuchsia and the cool ice blue is Beauty Uk's Blue. I also felt a tad wild and decided to juggle up the nails. My day was pretty boring today but i thought i would share my wacky experience with yous!

My New Discovery.

I have to share my new love for....Soap&Glory products! I have read loads of reviews of the brand and one product that is always raved about is the famous 'Righteous Butter!' People have been saying it is a wonder product that leaves your skin silky soft, but i had no idea just how soft. It made sense to buy the lotion form as it was cheaper and you get 200ml more than the butter form. My skin is naturally soft anyways so i find it hard to find a moisturiser/lotion that makes a real difference to my skin and i have finally found it. My previous body lotion i used was the Garnier Intensive Seven Days Lotion and that seemed to do the trick and keep my hydrated but nothing compares to the Righteous Butter! I purchased mine in Boots for only £10 which is a bargain for 500mls! When i was browsing the Soap&Glory section i came across 'Glad Pitts' which is an anti-perspriant deodorant they do. I have to admit this purchase was just because the name made me laugh but it is an awesome product too! It is aloe vera scented and is brilliant for anti white marks. My Soap&Glory experience has already been luxurious so i intend to purchase alot more from this pampering brand.

The Going Blonde Challenge!

 I  have had years of build up colour from permanent hair dyes. It was jet black and in very bad condition
My natural hair colour is a dirty blonde which i havent been in three years. For ages i longed for a platinum blonde colour just like Lisa Kudrow. I knew the only way i would be able to go light blonde was with bleach.
Step One.
Firstly i used Smart Beauty's Smart Blonde bleach where i purchased from Superdrug for £4.99 i had to use two boxes as my hair is over 20cm.

I bleached my hair twice with this which i needed four boxes in total. After two bleaches my hair went like this.  >    

RRP:£4.99 from                                              

My hair went peroxide blonde at the roots which i wanted, but carrot ginger everywhere else, it was a disaster.
Step Two.
I then used Schwarzkopf Live Colour Blonde in Absolute Blonde which i also purchased from superdrug i only needed one box as you get quite alot of powder bleach in the box.

I left this on for an hour which i know is bad for your hair but i was so desperate to cover the ginger. After being on my head for a hour then a quick blowdry my hair looked like this.  >

RRP:£5.49 from                                                          

It still had a brassiness to it, but it was gradually becoming lighter.
Step Three.
I then decided to put Clairol Perfect 10 in the shade Light Ash Blonde, as the Ash hair dyes cancel out the ginger tones in your hair. I bought two boxes as i was putting all my faith on it. 
After being on my
head for an hour
and a half my hair
was very pourous
and brittle.The 
texture was like
chewing gum which
really worried me,
but after blowdrying
my hair i was left with 
a lovely surprise! >  
                             RRP:£4.99 from 

Other Steps I Used To Help Me Go Blonde!

I wrapped my head in cling film then place a plastic bag over the top to keep the heat it. I did this after every bleach and dying session.

Then i put a blowdrying tunnel on my head which produced even more heat.

I used Pro.Voke's Touch Of Silver Twice A Week Brightening Shampoo as a toner. It is a very deep purple and is for blonde,platinum and white hair. I put this on my hair for as long as an hour, i still use this now to prevent the brassy and ginger tones in my hair.

RRP: £3.05 from
