Superdrug Creme Sensations Black Cherry Hair Dye

This weekend I decided to dye my hair as I was really bored with the colour AGAIN!  I like to change my hair colour maybe twice a year to update it for the season ahead.  If you remember I had caramel highlights/ombre "bronde" through my hair over the summer so now that we are into autumn/winter I wanted to go back to dark.

I was in Superdrug on a bit of a spending spree (post coming next!) and they were doing an offer on their hair dye of two boxes for £5.  I used this brand earlier in the year to dye my hair dark brown so I knew I liked it and was not allergic.  What I love about this dye is that it's semi-permanent so only going to last 6-8 weeks which is great for someone like me that gets bored easily.  It also has no amonia and added keratin so won't harm the hair.

The process was super easy.  I mixed the colour in with the toner and gave it a good shake.  I then put on the plastic gloves and started to apply it all over my dry hair.  I started with the roots and worked my way down to the ends ensuring my whole head was covered.  I then left it on for 30 minutes, it said 20 on the box but I wanted to get an intense colour.  I then washed it off in the shower making sure to double shampoo and go in with the colour conditioner it came with.

I'm really happy with the colour.  It's a little redder than I expected probably because it was blonde underneath but I like it red as I was more worried it would be too dark for my skin tone.

If you are considering dying your hair at home I would highly recommend it.  These home dying kits are super easy to use and follow, you just can't mess up!  Make sure to do an allergy test 24 hours before and you'll be good.  It's also so much cheaper than going to the salon for a hair dye, I've been dying my own hair for years.

Feel free to ask me any questions you might have in the comments!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
