Pink Hair with #L'OrealColorista

Heeeey. Today I'm talking all how you can achieve this pink colour for your hair all for just £7.00. If you read my last post you'll know I was left feeling pretty disappointed by Schwarzkopf's 'Live Steel Silver' dye (you can read this here) - but today's post is a whole different vibe because I've actually found a product I am seriously impressed with.

To achieve this look I used L'Oreal's Colourista Washout Pink Hair - I don't know where you've been on social media if you haven't heard of their new range as its been everywhere...

Disappointing Product | Schwarzkopf LIVE Steel Silver

There's nothing more disappointing that envisioning something and it turning out completely different right? Yeah, well that's just happened to me. I've always wanted to try dying my hair silver/grey and when I saw the TV ad for Schwarzkopf's LIVE colours I fell in love with the 'Steel Silver' shade. So of course, I headed to my latest Superdrug to pick it up (make sure you check the contents before you purchase because the first box I picked up only contained the instructions - luckily I checked before I bought the product).

Get Up To 30% Student Discount at Zizzi with UNiDAYS this Spring! | New Spring Menu Review

Fancy eating out at Zizzi for a great discount? If you're a student look no further as this spring UNiDAYS are giving students up to 30% off at Zizzi. For those of you who haven't heard of UNiDAYS (which I'm pretty sure you will have done), its the most simple and easy way to get student discount - and best of all it's free. All you need to do is sign up via their website or download their app using your student email and thats it - there's no catch. For up to 30% of Zizzi log in/sign up at UNiDAYS here.

I've used UNiDAYS since I was a sixth form student and I've been able to get discount across so many of my favourite online shops and restaurants, including Missguided, Boohoo, Pretty Little Thing, Nike, ASOS, Bill's, and Deliveroo. 

Zizzi kindly sent me a £50.00 gift card to taste their new spring menu, which was so lovely seen as though I don't usually go out for dinner while at university. I'd never been to Zizzi before I visited so I was excited to try somewhere I'd not eaten before.

My Week in Instagram Photos | Skiing in Flaine

So I'm currently sat typing away in Flaine, France. I've been lucky enough to escape the stress of uni for a week and ski to my hearts content around the Haute Savoie region of the French Alps. Not the mention, the hotel has two swimming pools, a sauna, steam room and a gym. Who wouldn't want such a therapeutic break right? 

I've spammed a little out of my Instagram, and I've seen this posts flying around blogger recently so I thought I'd share my gram pics on here just incase you haven't already seen them enough...

Spring Wish List | Featuring StyleWe AD

Spring wishlist!

I've put together a small spring wish list as its coming up to Easter time, only meaning one thing - more pastels and pinks. Student life is getting to me way too much, and instead of doing anything about the financial situation, I'll just sit and lust over things instead - and study of course, I've got way too many deadlines. Not to mention, I'm going to France on Saturday so I really need to up my game as I'm missing a week of uni. 

I'm still obsessed with pastel pink, which has so much to do with how light my hair is at the moment - I just think blonde hair goes so well with baby pink. Everything seems to be catching my eye right now, and it is probably the worst time as uni is nearly over my bank balance is broken. However, who said I can't window shop?

A Morning with House of Fraser and Charlotte Tilbury

Last Wednesday I was invited to spend the morning with House of Fraser in Meadowhall for a 'Tilbury Transformation' with one of Charlotte Tilbury's lead makeup artists. It was such a lovely morning and an amazing opportunity to be able to have my makeup done by Kelly Mitchell who's been in the makeup artistry industry for years with a lot of experience. After never using any Charlotte Tilbury products before, I've found a new love - although I don't think my bank balance will be best pleased.

Breakfast at Bills

I thought I'd write a foodie post today, well I say foodie - I'm not expert I'll leave that to my friends. But, I wanted to share my photos from my recent visit to Bills in Sheffield last Saturday as it was just far too 'instagrammable' to not. I tend to stick to my favourite restaurants and cafe's to eat hence why this was my first time at Bills, but I think I've found one of my new favourite places to eat.

Being Blonde | Let's Talk Toners

I've been 'blonde' for over two years now, so I've had my fair share of trialling about every single blonde toner on the market. If you have highlights, or blonde hair you'll know the struggles of removing brassy tones and keeping your hair fresh and ashy. Brassy tones have always been a problem with me when bleaching my hair, as I'm naturally a brunette and have had red dye in my hair from my younger years. 

A little bit of history - I started getting highlights about two years ago and have continued to do so up until a few weeks ago when I decided to just bleach the whole lot. Every time I've had my highlights touched up and re-done I've always had brassy tones and had to use toners, after about a week of using toning products my hair resumes to the usual ash blonde highlight look until I need to start again when my roots have grown out. I've tested so many different toners over the years, some I've been highly impressed with and will continue to use, and others less so. After bleaching my hair all over, my range of toning products were most definitely put to the test, but after really persevering it payed off - even if it is a difficulty to maintain sometimes.  

I'm going to write a post all about how I bleach and dye my hair so look out for that soon, but for now let's discuss my favourite picks for neutralising those brassy tones...

2017 | Turning Pain into Power

Taking what seems like the longest break from blogging has made me re-evaluate so much, and at some part I did fall out of love with blogging. I've debated writing an honest post for months now - but come to the point that I need to make positivity out of the things that are hardest in life. 

I've never been into new years resolutions, but turning 20 has made me realise you can't stay stuck in the same thoughts forever (as hard and horrible as it can be). Its completely ok to not be ok - wise words of Jessie J - but, there comes a point when you have to at least try and move on from hurtful memories. 

I wouldn't be able to summarise all the ways that I do this, but somehow I manage it. No one is perfect, everyone has down days but these are ways in which I'm able to put things into a little bit of perspective.
