#PictureOfTheWeek - short hair, don't care!

Hello, everyone! welcome back to my blog. So, I have new hair I finally decided to take the plunge and chop off my hair. I really love how it's made my hair look much healthier and thicker. My hair really did need a big cut as it was, lets face it kinda dead. I also have a subtle hue of pink added in my hair which I just love, I used the Bleach london Rosé dye. When I asked for this cut I made it clear that I wanted the sides a little longer than the back, to avoid the dreaded mushroom bob!

So, a quick short and sweet update. Let me know what you think to my hair in the comments.

Until next time,

Small things with big meanings

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share my article that was published in the Sheffield Star, my local newspaper. I was very happy to see this in the newspaper as I spent a lot of time and effort into it. The article is all about how we should cherish the small things in life, especially the things with sentimental value. I interviewed two people to see what their special item is and I even included my own!

Throughout our lives, we all gain something that may not be valuable money wise, but the memories and sentimental value make them priceless. These days people think too much about the price rather than the memories and closeness of having something that means more than money. A precious item can just be about the memories and that your dearly cherish something so much you couldn't live without it. We all have something close to us with a little story and I have combined a few starting with my own precious item.

My precious item is a cuddly dog I was given when I was first born. This dog was given to me by my Granddad and it's something I was never without. Pictured above is an image of me as a baby with my beloved toy dog. Wherever I went the cuddly dog went, it comforted me when I was a baby. The reason why it is so sentimental and precious to me is that I have kept it through all the years and it has so many memories and seen me through my childhood.

(Natalie's special item)

Natalie aged 18, received a heart with her name and Nan on the back of the heart. Natalie told me she received this at her Nan's funeral and it's very sentimental to her. Natalie's Nan liked white roses, so at the funeral, they placed white roses on her coffin. They all took a heart, to resemble guests giving her the roses and her nan giving them the hearts in return.
Natalie said: "This will always be very precious to me as it's the last thing my nan gave to me."

Shannon aged 17, received a necklace and a bracelet when she was a newborn. These items are very sentimental to Shannon because her Grandma bought her them and she was very close to her. Shannon remembers the memories of her grandma with the bracelet and necklace. They became extremely sentimental to her when her Grandma sadly passed away.
Shannon said: "The necklace and bracelet bring back all the lovely memories I shared with my nan and for that, they will always be close to my heart."
The moral of the article is to treasure the items that aren't necessarily worth a fortune but the ones that hold memories and love. Those are the ones that are worth a fortune to you in your heart.

Random act of kindness: Saffron's story

Hello everyone, welcome back. Today I have started my new, exciting blog series. This series will showcase people's stories all about their random acts of kindness. I really do think we should spread kindness in the world and help each other out every once in a while.  To start off the series, Saffron kindly got in contact with me on twitter with her story. 

Saffron actually had a few stories to share with me and I had to include them all, it really shows what a lovely person she is and how we should do the same! The great thing also is that Saffron has stories from both the giving and receiving end, of kindness! 

1. "When I had work experience in London I bought a train pass for the week, on the underground it slipped out of my pocket. Luckily some kind strangers got my attention and returned my ticket." 

2.  "Around the same time of my work experience I was rushing to get the tube and my bag got stuck in the train doors, luckily two kind men helped me haul it through the doors."

3. "I let everyone get on the train before me, a gentleman actually thanked me I had never experienced this before." 

I think these acts of kindness from Saffron's experience (both the giving and receiving end) really restores faith back into humanity! 

If you have a random act of kindness story let me know via email or twitter. (email can be found on the contact page of my blog).

Thank you for reading
Until next time

 Saffron has her own blog which I have left a link for you to view :) Saffron's blog

NYX soft matte lip cream review

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to share my new favourite lipstick. The best thing about this is that it's cruelty-free. Personally, I think every brand should be cruelty-free. I love this red burgundy colour, it's just gorgeous for winter time to make you feel that little bit glam, while bundled up in thousands of layers.

Nyx is such an amazing brand and such a cheap price! I couldn't believe the prices when I went into my local Boots. This brand to me really rivals many highend brands.

This lipstick drys matte and lasts a very long time; It literally stains your lips. I also pair this lipstick with a lip liner just to make my lips look a little bigger and more defined, but you don't have to it's just personal preference.

So, this is the colour swatched. I just love it, it's so pretty and really suits my make up look. I pair this with a brown smokey eye a bit of blusher and highligther!

What do you think to this lipstick? Let me know in the comments

Until next time,

hair trends: pastel lovin'

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I have rounded up my favourite hair trends - pastel hair trends to be precise. I just love pastel, it's just so gorgeous. I have rounded up my favourite colours from the whole pastel trend, so here goes...

The pastel pink look

I love pastel pink, it's just gorgeous. When Bleach London announced their amazing hair colours I couldn't wait to try this rosé colour. This conditioning dye lasts up to 2 to 10 washes, so no commitment. The greatest part is that this actually conditions your hair, so no dry dull locks. I have actually tried this colour myself, as you can see so I know that it's brilliant!

A drop of lilac...

I haven't tried this dye, well not yet anyway. I have ordered it online and I just can't wait to give it a go. I love the lilac hair trend and I have always been very envious of people with it. Now I have light enough hair, it's time I try it for myself! I will definitely write a post when I get this hair dye, on the results.

Peach lovin'

I have to admit hearing the word peach to describe a hair colour made me a little sceptical, but when I saw the results I just loved it. I don't think it is a hair colour that I could personally pull off but I'm sure others could. I have rounded up some peach hair dyes that seem the best in my opinion. As I have tried these brands in other colours, they are brands I trust. One is even a pre-lightener, so if your hair isn't quite as light this lightens and applies the peach all in one go!

So, which one is your favourite pastel colour? Let me know in the comments.

Until next time,
