Fire Ombre.

 photo DSC_0393_small_zps99eea2fe.jpg  photo DSC_0398_small_zps8be7f30e.jpg I'd been going backwards and forwards for months over the idea of going red. It's something that I'd always gone back to back in the day, but for the past few years I've stuck to my natural brown, because it took soo long to get it back to normal without a red tinge. But it was something I kept thinking about and the only thing that was putting me off was just getting it back to brown when I get bored of it. But I figured if I'm going to think about it as much as I was, I may as well just do it, and deal with the dilemma when it comes!
But I love it, I didn't realise how much I missed having red hair! I used the Live color XXL in Radiant Red. And for me to keep my ombre and blend it in, I just back combed it when it came to applying it near the blonde, easy peasy. Do you like?

You have no idea how excited I was to throw on an outfit like this, it's been too hot for the past couple of months to get away with this sort of outfit, but as it's started to cool off a bit, i've been sneaking the odd bit of jumpers and darker colours back out again. I did stick out like a soar thumb, because everyone else is still in there summer get up, but I'm not bothered. It's so funny how I feel more like myself just from changing how I'm dressing. I was honestly smiling so much the other day because I could wear a jumper, skirt and black tights, the little things I guess..

This week..
My buddys birthday.
Wearing hawaiian shirts.
Going rowing down the river.
Starbucks Mocha frappuccino.
My day off work, the main thing I'm looking forward to is wearing my actual clothes.

I've been working a lot this week, so not a lot has happened for me, but these are the little things that made me happy.

Sorry about the misserable face in most of these, it was a pretty hot day. I can't deal with heat. (soz)
Anyways I've tried being a bit more adventurous with this hot weather and experimenting a bit with different outfits, I did kind of fall into the habit of 'Smock dresses all day every day' which is still great, but it wasn't that inspiring.
Wearing a white top was so odd for me, I didn't feel like myself and was tempted to wear something else, but I stuck it out, and this is now probably one of my favourite summer outfits. I've also tried getting used to going bare leg, which I used to hate but when it's this hot, it's either sizzle or ditch the tights, and I'm actually feeling good about it, I'm slowly making these little changes to embrace this weather a little bit.
I'm still counting down the days to Autumn so I can get my layering back on though, you can't take the sweater out of the girl. Never ever.

I know, a lot of this stuff is from Accessorise, but I work there, and that means I have to look at this stuff all day. So there's always loads of stuff that I want. Honestly when I first got this Dress I was really surprised that I like it, if you've read my blog for a while you'll notice that I don't wear much colour, but this just really interested me, I love the navy background on it. And to be honest, you've all seen my navy lacey skirt, so I don't really need to say anything about it, it's just the best skirt ever.
Oh and these shoes are super adorable and soo comfy, I'm just gonna buy loads when I go to Primark again.

We've got obsessions // Ash Blonde Ombre

 I have never shown an interest in Ash blonde until earlier this week, and now i'm well and truly fascinated.
I'm so intrigued that I actually went out and bought an Ash blonde hair dye for my ombre ends, but it didn't really make a difference... For obvious reasons, my ombre needs to be lightened a lot more before they can process ash blonde ends. But I definitely want to give it a go, I think it'll be quite nice to lighten my ends for summer.
1 bummer that came out of this whole experience was when I said to my boyfriend "I'm gonna go over my ombre with Ash blonde" and he replies, "you still have your ombre?" *heart breaks*

All That Matters.

Half up, half down pony all day for me.
I had these taken like over a week ago, and I've been so lazy with uploading them, I think it's cause of the lighting not being so great.. But yeah I kicked myself up the butt.
Literally I love this Ditsy print skirt from H&M, it's the perfect amount of cute, but also not so girly because of it being a small print, and having the black background. I got the top in a random shop in Weston S-Mare, (which I wrote a post about on here) and it's just so easy to wear, it's a loose fit and just goes with anything really.
I just wish I had more tops to wear with this pretty skirt, and I'm gonna make that my goal for when I get paid, try to avoid pretty dresses and get some tops! (Please keep your fingers crossed for me.)
