Pastel Pink Ombre with La Riche in Carnation Pink

Before: bad skin and tons of makeup 
After: barely any make-up, good skin and pink hair with a fringe woop!

Hey guys! I got bored of my slowly growing out blonde ombre hair so decided to dye it pastel pink, completely on a whim! Pretty sure the only person I told was my brother, which is unheard of for me as I usually need at least 5 more opinions from friends before I do anything to my beloved tresses! ha :D

I found the cheapest dye on ebay (this one specifically), looked at a few blog reviews online (of course), it seemed fine, so went ahead and ordered it. I got the La Riche Directions in Carnation Pink, they had a pastel pink colour but I figured I could just mix the darker one with conditioner, thus use the little tub more than once and get a deep conditioning treatment at the same time, thrifty!

It was super easy, I put three big teaspoons of white conditioner in a bowl, added half the tub of pink dye, mixed it up with a spoon, split my hair into two sections, covered my hands with sandwich bags and dolloped it on! I put it on dry hair as I didn't want to dilute the mixture and I combed it through with my tangle teezer, without wearing my handy sandwich bags as it turns out I didn't really need them lol.

I left it on for about an hour in total and rinsed it out with lukewarm, verging on cold, water. I totally love it! It's semi permanent and will fade really quickly, but it was easy, cheap and mess free so I can see myself topping up regularly, maybe I'll go for lilac next, ooo the possibilities!

Tribal Wrap Cardi

Cardigan: Warehouse (was £45, now £20!)  |  Shirt: Topshop  |  Jeans: H&M (super skinny super low)  |  Loafers: H&M  |  Hat: Next

This is a very long awaited post! I must have received this cardi about two months ago (sorry! But reduced, yey!). It's been too cold to just wear a cardi without a million under layers and a coat on top. I got this hat in Exeter yesterday and I looove it, I have wanted one for about a year and a half, and this one from Next is perfect for my tiny head. I'm going to style it with everything!
