Blonde Hair | Dry Hair | Forever Long Hair

I've got that awkward 'dirty blonde' hair, which in winter just looks mousey as it isn't lightening in the sun.

I used to dye my hair dark brown (very dark!), and about 18months ago I decided to go blonde again. A little worried my hair would entirely fall out, but desperately wanting to be blonde, I bought loads of packs of B4 hair stripper, and did a few treatments over the course of a week - then went straight in with the bleach.

Thankfully, my hair is in tact - but I definitely notice it looks a lot drier now that it is blonde and doesn't reflect the light in the same glossy way as when I was a brunette. So I need to start taking care of it a bit better.

I bought this BB quenching shampoo and conditioner for terribly thirsty hair, than when combined with a good blowdry seems to do the trick! (If only I had the time/patience to blowdry my hair everytime I wash it).

Available to purchase from - pretty awesome site as its always free delivery!

Roy Lichtenstein Face Paint | Pop Art Fancy Dress

I wasn't sure what to go as for Halloween this year, we were having more of an American Halloween so it didn't have to be scary! I decided to go as a Roy Lichtenstein painting - although on the morning I realised the facepaint kit I bought didn't contain red, so unfortunately I had orange spots...

I used a kids facepainting kit, cotton buds, an old eyeshadow brush, and hair straightners to add a bit of curl to my hair. Was quite pleased with the outcome, even if nobody knew what i was...
