Mermaid Hair with BLEACH London


 So I've been talking about it for months and finally I got up the nerve to go crazy with my hair. 

I've used BLEACH London in the past when I had pink through my hair and was impressed although in the spirit of honesty this time I had a fair bit of trouble. Despite having quite a bit of blonde put through my hair the last time I got it done as you can see below it was still quite a dark blonde so my first 2 attempts (once with Violet Skies and once with Washed Up Mermaid) failed spectularly. Violet skies went a horrid dishwater grey, not the gorgeous Granny grey we've all come to love and Mermaid just didn't do anything except for one pale green streak. 


Fail. 

So out came the home dyes to lighten the blonde and touch up my roots. I also enlisted the help of my best friend who took painstaking efforts to paint the actual green on to my hair as accurately as possible. 


The dye bowl & brush were £3 from superdrug & well worth the investment for this sort of endeavour!

BAM!


Much better!! I'm completely sold on Turquoise hair now & have abandoned my plans to switch to the Violet colours next. I'm going to be investing in a few different brands to trial out longevity (already I've lost a lot of colour in the first wash but that's the fun with fashion colours!) so suggestions are greatly welcomed!

  1. Mine is Directions Turqoise. The colour longevity in my air is amazing, only need to top it up once a month or so!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…

Alita: Battle Angel

For all the hype about it's animated lead character, and the clashing of titans that is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel is the teen fantasy movie (potential) franchise you didn't know you were getting and I'm not sure you wanted. 
Alita starts with Christoph Waltz finding her discarded shell in the trash dump of a mysterious floating city that lords over the world on the ground. He then take her back and, with the help of his *mayaswellbemute* assistant, rebuilds her with a teen shaped mech body he just happens to have lying around and gives her the name of his dead daughter. None of this is supposed to be creepy at all. When Alita, Rosa Salazar, starts to realise that she is not just your typical abandoned teendroid but actually a super slick alien android with secret ninja fighting skills she does what any girl would do... she throws herself at, literally, the first boy she meets and takes up roller derby. Oh but she's also a sassy vigilante …
