Mermaid Hair

As some you may remember I dyed my hair pink/purple in September. I loved it so much but was too lazy and poor to do any up keep on it. However it did fade to a lovely pale pink and I was still getting compliments on it on Friday, nearly 3 months later.

This time I decided to go one better and pick up a turquoise dye too. I could not contain my excitement. I used the Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Ultra Brights in Purple Punk, Shocking Pink and Turquoise temptation which are currently on 2 for £7.50 in Boots & Superdrug. I think my favourite of all the colours is the pink but I adore how they all work together.

 I feel like a mermaid although my hairdresser says its My Little Pony hair. I think next time I might try the Electric blue as well and see what happens. I am a huge fan of mutli coloured hair and I feel amazing when I go out in public. I got so many compliments on it on Monday and children seem to think I'm magical.

What do you think? 
Are you a fan of multi coloured hair?

Sunday Smiles

I've noticed I've been moaning on social media a lot recently...Sorry guys. So I thought I'd write about a few things that have made me smile recently.

1. My hair. I'm in love with my hair it's pink & purple & blue and I feel like a mermaid and a girl told me it was beautiful and made my year.

2. I made a cake and it was delicious and I also made gingerbread men that were pretty damn delicious

3. I get to sleep in a double bed again. Starfish all night every night

4. Being home so I can use our accessible wet room and sit in the shower for an hour much to my dads disgust about how much electricity Im using

5,Warm socks. Socks are my staple clothing item at the moment and I've fallen in love with some really warm ones from peacocks that are permanently attached to my feet. I even asked Santa for some more

6. Costas orange hot chocolates, need I say more, They are delicious

7. I have some amazing friends online and offline

8. Gold glittery nail varnish... until I have to try and get it off

9. Alska Mixed berry Cider from Aldi. Try it. Its half the price of Rekorderlig and Kopparberg but tastes even better

10. Had an amazing night with some amazing friends last night

11. My friends got me some awesome pressies including a frozen cup with straw & bottle and some bambi socks

What's made you smile this week?
Anyone else counting down the days until summer?

The Few Good Things About Winter

If there was an award for most sporadic blogger I would totally win. I'm trying to do better but I'm not really an organised person so you'll just have to take me or leave me and never actually know when I'm gonna post. I'm just soo busy being awesome and living my hectic life (Binge watching criminal minds and chain drinking coffee in a pile of blankets). Anyways onto my post.

If you follow me on twitter you will know that I hate Winter. Me & winter are just not meant to be. I hate being cold and it makes my joints go crazy.

So to stop me being a Mr grumpy gills about this stupid cold weather I thought I'd write down the very few things about winter that I don't mind like being able to get some photos like this one

1. It's acceptable to wear fluffy socks with every outfit.

2. Capes are in this year so I can go out in a wearable blanket and still be fashionable

3. I can drink all the hot drinks without my body overheating

4. Winter food is pretty good. Mashed potato, stews, gravy etc

5. I can rock a beanie instead of doing my hair

6. Dark nail polish

7. Scarves

8. It is perfectly acceptable to stay in all day in a blanket cocoon and watch films because it's raining anyway so you're not wasting precious sun

9. Don't have to shave your legs

10. I can wear all my cute jumpers and oversized hoodies

11. Did I mention fluffy socks

12. The sea is amazing when it's stormy and raining

13. It gets dark earlier so I don't feel guilty about going to bed

14. Curling up with a good book, a cuppa whilst listening to the rain

And that's about all I can think off. I'll be here counting down the days until summer. Let me know what you love about winter?

Wilko Passion Fruit & Melon Body Scrub

I got way too excited when I saw the new extremely colourful and affordable Fruits range in Wilkinsons. My mum bought a Passion fruit & melon body scrub that was supposed to go in my stocking but I desperately needed some so she gave in & let me have it early (#Spoilt).

I was a tad disappointed by it but I have an issue with liking my body scrubs to be like sand paper and I don't think anything will ever beat my favourite Sanctuary Spa Hot Sugar Scrub which I'm desperately hoping Santa will bring me again.

Apart from this scrubs lack of scrub I liked everything else about it. Its nice and moisturising and feels great on the skin and washes off nicely with no oily residue that some scrubs tend to leave. It also smells edible delicious. I also smelled the pink one which smells exactly like rhubarb & custard sweets, I'm not sure whether it would make me drool a bit though if I smelt like sweets during the day. Plus its an amazing colour and the lid is easy to open which is kinda essential.

I have a sneaky suspicion (I was there when Santa was shopping) that I am getting some more of this range for Christmas so expect a bigger more in depth review at a later date.

If you are looking for some smellies for last minute Christmas pressies then head to wilkinsons as the range consists of

- Shampoo
-Shower Gel

with a massive choice of scents

Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Face Mask

My skin has been horrific recently due to a massive flare up so when I was offered the chance to try a Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask I jumped at the chance. I chose the Glacial Clay Spa mask* and eagerly waited for it to arrive.

This face mask is a clay infused bamboo fabric which feels amazing on your skin. You look a bit like you should be in a horror movie but this just adds to the experience and requires lots of selfies and snapchats to be taken although it is impossible to smile.

They say - Feel the natural rush of cooling Glacial Clay cleanse your pores to the core. Anti-oxidant rich Red Grape and Arctic Cloudberry juices from the glacial heights of Scandinavia work their magic to help maintain skins natural barrier.

The cooling effect of this mask was amazing and felt great on my skin after a rough day helping me to relax. If you have bad arms/hands or suffering from really bad fatigue but still want to pamper yourself then this is the face mask for you. You just pull it out the packet and place it on your face leave it for 10 mins, massage it a bit and then rinse. 

My skin felt so soft & much brighter after this and as I said the cooling effect is so nice. At only £1.49 these are a cheap way to treat yourself when you feel like crap.

Have you tried any of these face masks? 

What are your favourite things to do when you're feeling rough?
