Sitting beside the sea is probably one of my favourite things to do, especially in the winter when the tourists have gone home & there's a layer of ethereal mist sitting above the water. I always feel at home beside the sea, I think there's something in the salty air that's good for the soul.
Today I bit the bullet and finally got in on the ombre action that's been sweeping the universe lately. My hair is already blonde and I think bleached ends would have looked a little ridiculous, so I thought I'd put a little twist on it and go for pink ombre!
Now, I'm a bit of a wimp and didn't want anything too drastic so I've gone for something that's about as subtle as pink hair can be. Some lovely ladies on Twitter mentioned that Directions was a good brand of dye to go for & they don't test on animals so I opted for the shades pastel pink and flamingo pink. The pastel pink was pretty but it ended up being a little bit too subtle for what I was after so I decided to go for the flamingo pink. The instructions say to leave the dye on for 15 minutes but I ignored that because the colour in the pot was so insanely bright & I just left it on for only 2 minutes. I'm so happy with the colour, it's pink but not too 'oh my gosh she has pink hair' if you know what I mean & I'm not gonna lie, I pretty much want all my hair to be this colour now!
Peace Necklace: Asos £4.I'm expecting it to fade quite quickly but that's okay, I have lots of dye left over & it won't take long to top up the colour if I fancy it.
Shoes: Peacocks £12.Today I also wore my pretty new shoes for the first time. They have a cute little kitten heel which I know some people seem to hate with a passion, but I think they're pretty! They make me feel like a doll whenever I put them on.
This used to be my absolute favourite dress ever and I've just recently rediscovered it. It was so cheap from Asos about a year ago and the details in it are just so lovely, it's so girly and easy to wear with tights a few cute accessories.
What do you think of ombred hair, is it your kind of thing? Have you ever dyed your hair an unnatural colour? I feel a bit like a rebellious teenager, only I'm just a few years too late!
