My dear, my darling one.

Dress - Topshop.
Denim jacket - Vintage (my mum's!)
Belt - Primark
Necklace - Primark
Ring - Primark.

Hellooo. Sorry I haven't blogged in over a week. I've moved back to University now after Christmas and the new year and I've had a lot of work to do. I had an essay due in and then I got all sad about missing home etc etc etc! I have a radio documentary to complete for Friday and we haven't even started editing it yet. Lolz. It's not actually funny, don't leave your work till the last mintue!

Anyway, I got my loan in so obviously treated myself. By buying one dress. God damn you measly loan! This velvet dress from Topshop was in the sale for £18 down from £30 and the colour is amazing, so I bought it without much hesitation!
I've had the jacket for quite a few years now, it's my mum's from the 90's or something, so I stole it. It's so manky looking, like the denim is losing it's colour but I don't care, I like it!

I also tried dyeing my hair this week. 

It's a bit of a mess. I don't know why I look stoned on this picture either, I wasn't! 
Basically I had red hair for ages, then I wanted to go back blonde but I didn't want to kill my hair so I went to the hairdressers and they put some highlights in which to be honest, looked like SHIT. So I just bleached the crap out of it myself (if you have money, please see a professional...) anyways. It went through the stages of orange, yellow, pale yellow. But I want my hair WHITE. Almost grey. So I got a white toner from La Riche directions. In this picture it looks yellow/white lolz. But I think it's the flash...
My boyfriend said the colour is exactly the same but I think he's just jealous of my hair. (!)
I think I'm going to carry on washing my hair with a purple based shampoo and see if that does anything...
Anyone tried and achieved white/grey hair before? How did you do it?


  1. I really like your hair! And your dress! I've had almost white hair before, but I did it the very unhealthy way with lots and lots of bleaching unfortunately! Lots of intensive conditioning treatments are the way forward if you do any bleaching - somehow my hair survived it, but I got bored of the upkeep as I'm incredibly lazy with hair! x

    1. I did get white hair once by bleaching it a hell of a lot but I'm trying to not use bleach as much this time. I'm pretty sure it's the hardest hair colour to achieve!

  2. Love the idea of pinching your Mums denim jacket! It looks great!

    I wanted white hair a while ago, but I never achieved it and lived with yellow hair for a long, long time.
