Where Have I Been? What Will Come Next?

Hey lovelies,  here I am going to be answering some questions on where I have been and what is to come next for myself and this blog.

 

1. Why did you stop posting?

I stopped posting on here because I took a break from wearing makeup. In fact I stopped wearing makeup all together, which obviously defeats the purpose of my blog as it is entirely beauty based.

2. Why did you stop wearing makeup?

My skin! My skin had become a problem. I was wearing makeup to cover how bad my skin was underneath, that I actually made it worse! So I have spent some time working on clearing my skin and finding the right products for me.

 

3. What have you been up to?

Where do I start… I have been focusing on my career in education. I have now been promoted to team leader of pre-school which is a big step for me. I have conquered some fears e.g. flying in an aeroplane. My new found hobby is ice skating. Just living life to the fullest as they say.

 

4. What is to come next?

I am back to wearing makeup and it is still a big passion of mine. I want to bring the blog back to life again, but also bring some lifestyle into it too. I want to be able to take breaks from wearing makeup and still feel like I can post on my blog.

There will be lots of makeup tutorials coming and also posts about my life e.g. the ice skating, my career and where I am travelling to.

 

I hope this answers everything and I will see you again soon.

Dying My Hair: Brown to Black (+Massive Apology)

I bet you haven’t seen my name pop up in a while ha ha. Well I’d like to start off this post with a massive apology for not posting in a while. But business shall resume as normal from today onwards. I will devote my time to writing extra posts to fill in the gaps from the last month. I hope you can forgive me.

While I have been away, I have experimented with dying my hair. This came about when my sister took a photo of me and it looked like my hair was black. I know I have dark brown hair already, but I was curious to actually see what it would look like. This is my first time ever colour treating my hair, I was very scared.

So I went to the local Boots in search for a semi-permenant dye and I came across the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in the shade Liquorice.

It Came With…

1 tube of colourant (48 ml)

1 tube of developer with a tip applicator (72 ml)

1 bottle of enhancing conditioner (40 ml)

1 pair of gloves

1 instruction leaflet

The whole process took about an hour (maybe a bit more) in total, which is great if you haven’t got too much time to spare. The colourant was left on my hair for around 20 minutes and then was thoroughly washed off (which was probably the hardest part as it may seem like you have got it all out of your hair but you have to keep rinsing.) I had a panic because as I was rinsing the colour out, it stained the bottom of the bath and instantly, I knew my mother would go mad at me! I ran into my sister’s room and said “quick, i’ve stained the bath I need something that will get it off”. She gave me a bottle of Cillit Bang (Black Mould Remover) and it literally came off instantly so the panic was over!

Overall, I loved the process and I was so happy with the end result that I think I will keep up with it. The colour lasts for up to 28 washes which is great for someone like me that doesn’t need to was their hair too frequently.
