Diet Mountain Dew




Blouse - Primark / Skirt - H&M / Necklace - Topshop

Yesterday I finally got my hair done. My roots hadn't been bleached since October so it was well overdue! I went to Cutting Room Creative in Leeds like always as they are colour specialists & I've had complete nightmares in the past with other expensive salons turning my roots bright orange (cough Vidal Sassoon are utterly shit cough). This time we went for a new toner called Iced Milkshake in an attempt to make it a bit greyer and I think its quite a pretty colour. I'm still tempted to dye it pastel pink but Andy said he wouldn't take me out for a meal on Valentine's Day if I did, boo! I'll just do it the week after haha. I also had it cut into a long bob because my ends were just so dry & raggedy. Its a bit shorter than I would've liked but it definitely needed a major cut. My stylist put a new Kerastase serum called Fibre Architecte on the ends of my hair which was really lovely. Its the perfect parter to the Kerastase Ciment Thermique as its meant especially for really damaged brittle hair. I've just ordered a bottle in the hopes it will prevent my previous hair situation from happening again.

I wore this blouse from Primark which my mum bought for me when she visited earlier this week. I love the puffy shoulders, I think they make it look really ladylike. Its got a random extra layer of material which gives it a babydoll effect when worn untucked. I got this skirt from H&M last month as I had a £5 off voucher. You can't really tell in the pictures but its pleated chiffon. It was snowing when I left the house so I wore my Doc Martens. I only really wear them in the snow because they're the only shoes I can wear in bad weather without falling on my arse. I should wear them more because they go with so many outfits. I bought them when I went to New York a few years ago and they were on sale for $50. At the time this worked out as £35, I do love a good bargain!

  20. The colour looks really nice, I really like the grey tone myself. I recently had to chop a few inches off my hair after bleaching a chunk into it but I felt so much better afterwards, even if it was horribly short! It felt so much better after the manky ends had gone. I have those exact Doc Martens too but don't wear them too often because I worry I look a bit butch, but I know exactly what you mean, great for the snow!

  21. I love blouses like that. They look good on everyone and can be dressed up or down so many ways. I like the hair, but I don't think I see a grey tint? You should go for pastel pink if you really want it! You only live once!
