Valentine's Day = new hair colour!

United Kingdom
Hi everyone! Hope you're all well and had a lovely Valentine's Day, (I know I did;))
I went to a concert on the 12th of February and then went out to see my lovely boyfriend which means that my bedroom was covered with clothes due to decisions on what to wear!
I know it's been a long time since I last posted on my blog but it's tough to keep it all up due to hardcore revision for upcoming exams! :(
Going back to the actual topic haha, well it's hard for every girl to pick out clothes for a special occasion to feel that they look good especially as we all think we look fat most of the time (depressing times). I picked out a few outfits from my own wardrobe that suit my body shape that I will include in this post. Going shopping makes me so happy so I'm going to include my recent buys too!

I've wanted my hair to be a pure platinum white colour so I decided to dye it this colour. I used L'Oreal Feria Extreme Platinum Power L01 hair dye which made my hair go a very light bleached blonde colour. The results weren't as I expected them to be however going from a medium blonde to platinum does take time. I used silver shampoo to neutralise all the yellow and orange tones from the previous hair colour as the dye wasn't powerful enough for my hair. It did damage my hair a lot as I dye it waaay too often so I didn't want to continue dying it and obviously my hair extensions needed dying too but I didn't touch them as I knew it would damage them too much and I always change my mind about my hair.


A couple of weeks later I decided to go back to my natural hair colour however I  didn't want to dye my hair extensions so I bought a hair dye that'll come out to be the same colour as my hair extensions. I used L'Oreal Majirel 10.31 Lightest Golden Ash Blonde which is basically the same shade as L'Oreal Recital Preferance 7.3 Florida Honey Blonde. This hair colour came out quite dark as you can see in the picture above it looks a bit brown. I had to wash it with silver shampoo a couple of times for the colour to fade.


This is the hair colour I managed to get after constant use of silver shampoo haha.

I must say that this is the best primer I ever owned! It's very essential as it makes my face smooth  as it fills out my pores. Even the texture is fabulous! It feels like velvet and makes your foundation easier to apply. It's a bit pricey however you get a lot for your money!
22ml - £23.50
44ml - £35 (more or less as I don't remember the exact price of this one as I got it ages ago)

That's it for today then :) I will try and post more often from now on! Thanks to all my followers! XO
