Frame Friday 008, Todays Outfit & Pink Ombre!

So, it's Friday again and surprise surprise I almost managed to forget Frame Friday for a second week running. Oh dear Jennie, oh dear!

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!

  2. oooooh it looks lovely! For the past couple of years I've been dying the underneath of my hair and underneath my side fringe purple and absolutely loved it. The last time I dyed it was about a year ago and I really want to re-dye it soon but think my skin will react badly as my eczema has been really bad.

    Think I might wait till the faded red colour has grown out before dying it and hopefully my skin will be better by then :) xx

    The most extreme ive been with my hair is I had a bit in my hair bleached then tried pink, red and purple not all at the same time lol but at the time I thought it was funky but now looking back at photos it was awful lol x

  21. The more I see of ombre hair, the more I like it, and I particularly love the pink spin you've put on yours! It's not too in your face and looks really lovely on you. Also love the earrings, and completely agree with you about the sea in winter. That picture is gorgeous xx

  25. The hair looks fab! I love how subtle it is, and it really suits you. I dyed my hair a bright pillarbox red once, when I was 14. It faded out to a horrible orange colour and I had to dye my usually blonde hair a dark brown to remedy it! Eeek. xx
