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!

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

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 …
