PASTEL PINK HAIR DYE TUTORIAL Schwarzkopf LIVE colour XXL Ultrabrights (93 Shocking Pink) Youtube update!!



A while ago the wonderful people over at Schwarzkopf sent me this amazing hair dye from a range called Ultrabrights, which I believe to be relatively new. To start with I was rather terrified of dying my hair this crazy intense colour, I mean I've had every colour under the sun, but I've only ever dyed my hair dark bright pink before and that was the first time I ever dyed my hair an unusual colour, and I regretted it because it was so intense it looked as if I might glow in the dark! Of course, a few months after getting this dye, someone happened to mention that you could dilute the dye with conditioner, like all of these "vegan" dyes which I've used in the past (after my traumatic undiluted dye experience of course) so then I looked at the box of Schwarzkopf XXL with a feeling of happiness and decided to make a video of the dying experience.

For anyone wondering, I've now been using this dye for the past three-ish months. I think its really amazing, it doesn't stain your shower, or your face, it will however stain your scalp, but this will wash out after you first wash your hair. It also hardly even stains my hands, which is amazing considering some of the pink dyes I've used in the past. I'd also like to mention that I've now dyed my hair with this dye four times, and I've used the same tube every time, and my hair is pretty long! So if you have short hair, expect to get around 4-5 dyes out of one tube if you mix it with conditioner. I find you get a pretty intense colour even if you do mix it with conditioner! Basically, it works out at a very good value for money, I've seen it in shops for £3.99 to arund £5 and so that works out at around £1.50 per dye including a big blob of conditioner!

I really want to try all the other Ultrabrights colours now that I've tried this one. Especially Purple Punk and Electric Blue. I also noticed Turquoise Temptation on the boots website, however I think this might be discontinued as its not on the Live XXL website *sad face*. I want rainbow hair!!! I hope you enjoy the tutorial, I apologise for my mumbling, and the squeaking mouse voice during the fast-forward part. I'm really not very skilled in the realm of youtube. I'll include a few extra photos from my instagram below of my hair recently!!

ALL THE FLUFF



FLUFFY JACKET: *MISSGUIDED out of stock, similar @ STYLE MOI/ ASOS/ BOOHOO/ ASOS
SCARF: CHARITY SHOP
RIPPED TSHIRT: CAR BOOT SALE/ DIY
HOLOGRAPHIC GRID GLITTER HEELS: *YRU

I'm not quite sure what this outfit is. You know when you throw something together like yep this will look good, I kinda feel a bit like Rachel Lynch, but she can totally pull this off. I however feel a bit uncomfortable, however if I hadn't mentioned this none of you guys would know, so maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it at all. Oh how the human mind works! Anyway, the fishnet tight obsession continues with more from the sparkly fishnets in this look and also I got these AMAZING shoes from YRU, I have been practising walking around the house in them because despite the fact I look like by now I should be able to wear heels, its still a task I struggle with.

MICHELLE KEEGAN FOR LIPSY PRESS DAY



MICHELLE KEEGAN FOR LIPSY

A few months ago I attended the Michelle Keegan for Lipsy press day! It was definitely a very fancy affair, held in one of the luxury hotel suites at the top of the Me Hotel in London. I have to thank the lovely PR girls at Bank Fashion for the invite! I've been to the Me Hotel a few times and it never fails to disappoint, its a great places to stop off at for some nibbles whilst at LFW as its very near Somerset House. I also love wandering around inside, its like a very posh elegant maze, which kind of reminds me of a modern day version of the Ministry of Magic department of Mysteries.

As for the collection, despite Lipsy not being the type of brand which I feel suits me (I mean lets be real here haha) saying that, all their clothes always seems to be such amazing quality, and if I was the type of girl that wore pretty cocktail dresses, I'd definitely be shopping there. All their dresses are always so flattering! Last year I acquired a black faux leather dress with embroidered front from the Lipsy Kardashian collection, it fitted me so amazingly well! In fact I have actually kept it in my clothing collection, just incase I ever have anywhere posh to go and I need a fancy dress to wear. My favourite item from this collection was the leather jacket, its soooo gorgeous *dies* the leather (I'm actually not sure if it was faux leather or not) is so thick and it has a "models off duty" feel and I think everyone wants one of those style leather jackets!!

WE CAN'T WE WONT SURRENDER


NEBULA TSHIRT: CHARITY SHOP
TARTAN SOCKS: TOPSHOP
TARTAN JACKET: CHARITY SHOP similar @ TOPSHOP/ MISSGUIDED
DIY GOLD PLATFORM BOOTS/ TRAINERS: CHARITY SHOP + DIY similar @ AMAZON

I should definitely wear this nebula top more often, its my favourite and it goes with everything. I'm just really scared I'll wear it out so I hardly ever put it on!! I think I found it in a charity shop in wales, infact I think it was the same charity shop as where I found my vintage galaxy jumper covered in killer whales, seals and I think there might be a few penguins also thrown in who are all flying happily around in outer space (this is also my favourite jumper, I will have to wear it again very soon!!) I also love this tartan jacket, however I think I'm going to sell it on depop, only because its slightly too big for me. The shoulder pads are on the inside of the lining so I can't remove them, and I feel it makes me look a bit odd and unbalanced while I'm wearing it, the print is so cool though!! Major jacket sadness!!

I AM SO ACTIVE



TIEDYE/ INK PINK PURPLE CROP TOP: *MISSGUIDED ACTIVE
RIPPED JEANS: *NELLY
SPARKLY FISHNET TIGHTS: WE LOVE COLORS
RHINESTONE TRAINERS: CHARITY SHOP

Actually (in reference to the title) I'm pretty much stationary at all times, unless of course I'm at the charity shops. I'd love to be more active though, I've noticed it helps me sleep, which is always good as I'm one of those weird people who can hardly function on anything less than nine hours of sleep. To aid me in my attempt to actually do something active (I want to start running) I jumped at the opportunity to get cute new active wear when Missguided released their activewear collection a few days ago! These crop tops are super cute, I think they go really well with normal outfits, not just 'hey I'm off to the gym' outfits. So I thought I'd pop them into a normal outfit for this particular look! I'm currently obsessed with fishnet tights underneath ripped jeans, and these sparkly ones are so cool!!
