So to create this look I used Colour Freedom’s Pink pizazz hair dye. Now if you’ve been following me for a while now you know that I am religious when it comes to Colour Freedom. There excellent when it comes to colour, quantity and value.

If you want to buy some from Superdrug (which I recommend because then you get Superdrug points and more money to buy more hair dye) then click the link below.

Top Wiggy Sites of 2017

Fashion., Wig Reviews

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so that means buying gifts to your loved ones, and looking good for Christmas parties! That’s why I thought I’d do a post about my top wig sites of 2017. These won’t be in order of best to worst, just my favourites compiled into a handy post.

  1. Estellewigsandmore

I discovered this site through depop actually, I bought my first human hair wig from them for £40 and it lasted me 2 years but this year I’ve been buying off them frequently as the quality of these wigs are top notch. I’d say the wigs are slightly more pricey then your sites that sell cosplay wigs but that’s because they sell “fashion” wigs, made for everyday wear.

My favourite wig I’ve bought off them is called Bailey which was a brown to blonde ombre lacefront wig. You can see my review of this wig below.

Bailey Review.

2. Black Candy Fashion Wigs

Black Candy Fashion Wigs HAD to be on this list just because I’ve bought 100’s of wigs off their site over the years. The variety and quality of wigs for the cheap price is brilliant and if your looking for bright lacefronts then this is the place for you.

My favourite wig from Black Candy Fashion would have to be Macchiato, it’s such a gorgeous brown bob that really surprised me that I liked the natural look!

3. Lush Wigs

I’ve been buying off Lush Wigs ever since I’ve been buying wigs and they’ve always been a staple wig site. I haven’t bought much off this site this year but they do have an amazing variety of wigs and I bought an absolute bombshell of a wig this year called Spring Break, and insanely fluffy cute wig that rocks.

4. Venus Wigs

If your looking for high quality gorgeous wigs presented so amazingly then Venus Wigs is your place to be. I ordered from them and I was shocked at the care that’s put into everything, the wigs, the presentation, just wow. My favourite wig from them was Euterpe, which is now no longer sold but you can watch my review and see the quality of everything here.

I got engaged!

Personal.

Hello everyone! It’s been ridiculously quiet on my blog as of late because I’ve been away on holiday and been working non stop since I’ve come back but I wanted to update the blog with a happy post telling you all that I got engaged!

We were in Islands of Adventure, the first day of the holiday and we were both so exited for the holiday to start! We had spent the whole day there and we had just gotten off the Jurassic Park water ride (which made me look like I had an accident, friendly advice don’t wear light coloured shorts on water rides) and I wanted to meet the raptor. I absolutely adore the Jurassic films and I was so exited like a little kid. We got to the front and he proposed! I was so overwhelmed, not only did the man of my dreams propose to me I had a raptor trying to eat me at the same time!

It was such an overwhelming experience but I’m safe to say it’s the coolest engagement I’ve ever seen! The raptor will be invited to the wedding!

There will be new posts up soon so thanks for hanging around!

Spooky Halloween Hair.

Fashion., Hair Dye Reviews

ello lovelies! So today I thought I would share with you my very exiting tutorial for spooky hair for the spooky halloween season!

So people feel like green hair is a very hard colour to pull off, but it’s honestly not!

I used Green Emerald by Colour freedom and it gave me such a dimensional look. For the darker blonde bits of my hair, a foresty green. For the lighter bits of my hair a vibrant grass green.

If you want to see how I created this look then please watch my tutorial below!

Tech Review – Philips SHB3075 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

Tech Review

So I was kindly sent a pair of Philips headphones to review and I am so thankful for them being sent to me.

These headphones are wireless on ear headphones, and I’m always very wary of wireless headphones because I’ve always had problems with them before but I’ve finally found a pair that work really well.

20292632_161375771075506_2137667323099321767_n

The headphones are connected via bluetooth and you can answer calls on them. They can be connected to a variety of devices, from your phone to your ipad and computer. The headphones are very comfortable and have an extendable band, so they can be stretched for larger headed people like me.

The sound quality is my favourite part because it’s an excellent quality and the thing I love is that no matter what percentage the battery is on the headphones quality is consistent. I normally have my phone in my bike basket and headphones on so they have great connectivity.

The headphones have swivelling ear shells for perfect comfort and I couldn’t ask for a better pair. 20258428_161375877742162_5062534102715493655_n

RAINBOW HAIR WITH COLOUR FREEDOM

Hair Dye Reviews

Colour Freedom kindly sent me a giant bundle of hairdye to create my own rainbow hairstyle and my creative mind was set alight.

The wig I ordered was a Sleek human hair wig in shade 613, which was a more yellow blonde then white blonde as described but still light enough to dye. If you want to see the wig I bought for this then click on the link.

19657267_153521288527621_2483846439110483890_n

So going from top to bottom, I used Crimson red, pink pizzazz, mystic purple, truely blue, tropical aqua. I tried to make a ombre type look that was still rainbow.

I did a tutorial on how I created this look so click the link below.

 

I hope you enjoyed this little post and I’ll see you in the next one!

£1 Lipsticks?!? Freedom Pro Lipstick Review 

Makeup Reviews

If I said to you £1 lipsticks that are good, what would you say? 

I am always on the hunt for cheap makeup that’s good quality. I feel like sometimes these makeup brands that sell lipsticks for £20-£30 are sometimes not as good as £1-£5 lipsticks, so getting a bargain and looking good is top priority. 

I recently doodled into Superdrug (which I shouldn’t because I buy too much) and I saw 5 lipsticks for £5. Ofcourse I had to buy them, so let’s test them out!

These lipsticks are Freedom Makeup and they are called Pro Lipsticks. They didn’t have much information so I’ll try to describe my feelings on them as well as possible. 

The lipsticks came in a box and they are different shades from dark red to hot pink. 

So these are the shades that come in the box. They seem pretty standard sizes for lipsticks and it didn’t specify whether they were Matt/gloss so let’s test them out!

So this is the shades swatched with the flash on. 


Then these are swatches without the flash on. They seem more Matt when applied but they are very smooth once on, where as compared to the MUA LUXE Matt lip lacquer is very stiff once applied. 

My honest opinion is varying on the shades. I found the darkest shades are the most pigmented and the lightest shades are… a fail. So if you want some good dark lipsticks then bag yourself this!

Milk Teeth Tee

Fashion.

I went down to London to see the concert at the Electric Ballroom and I saw Creeper, Energy, Puppy and Milk Teeth.

I decided to get myself a Milk Teeth t-shirt.

17759711_105499779996439_4407423100074947171_n

Milk Teeth are a punk rock band from Stroud, Gloucestershire.

 

17634678_105499466663137_525128993411251164_n

The band really resinates with me because my dream throughout school was to be a female bassist in a punk/rock/metal band and I was constantly told I couldn’t do it because female bassists don’t exist, which ended up me quitting school.

17634302_105499896663094_4137602715379989071_n

I seriously reccomend giving them a listen as they have amazing music and great merch.

WORST HAIRDYE ON THE PLANET

Hair Dye Reviews

It’s annoying when your hair dye doesn’t go the colour you want, but dying it and it not working at all, or turning the same colour as a pile of sick is even worse. 

I took absolutely ages to get my hair blonde so I can dye it bright colours. I thought I’d try out the new Pick & Mix dyed from Superdrug, soon has they had an array of bright colours. 


From reading the packaging it sounds like a really amazing product. It’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans, it’s cruelty free and lasts for 3-10 washes so me wanting to change it loads of times sounds a brilliant idea!

The colours I used was red and violet. 

Here’s the red result after one wash. 


What. On. Earth. Happened. The roots are coral and the ends are just a faded mess. I was so disappointed, so I gave it a good scrub till it was all the same colour as the ends and put the purple on. 


My hair turned into vomit. It’s a mix of the colour of Parma violet sweets and the colour of Doc Browns coat in the first back to the future. My hair is ruined. 

I’m so disappointed in these products and it’s such a shame as they seem a brilliant idea just the formula is an absolute flop. 
I hope this helps if your interested in buying these as when I looked up reviews I couldn’t find anything. 

MARILYN HAIR 

Fashion.


So today I tried to turn myself into Marylin Monroe, but Trisha Paytas turn on the look. 

I don’t normally wear fake eyelashes but I did for this look. 


The wig is a lacefront from Zellarosewigs which isn’t on the site currently but keep a look out.
