I’ll be honest, make up isn’t really my thing. As someone who neither uses it or particularly cares for it, it’s a subject I’ll happily pass by. However when my ultimate style icon and #wcw forever, Caroline de Maigret announced she was collaborating with Lancôme on a collection for Autumn 2015, I immediately considered a career as a chic Parisian drag queen. And so, … Continue reading CAROLINE DE MAIGRET FOR LANCÔME HAS ARRIVED
There comes a point in every platinum blonde’s life when, put quite simply, they get So Tired Of Your Shit. ‘Your’ being directed at the hair, ‘Shit’ used to cover the erroneous ways in which being a platinum blonde totally ruins your life. For all its many positives (and trust me, there are many), being platinum blonde is also a royal pain in the ass. … Continue reading JUST HOLD ON WE’RE GOING HOME
For the last few months I’ve been a highlighted blonde, which for whats its worth is a great colour to be. Its kind of like having a good foundation for everything (i.e. clothes) as well as providing a little pop of brightness.

Ages ago I did a post about wanting to go pink, but I never went through it with because I was restricted by my work (it wasn’t actually ages, it just feels like that since I’ve been off college for so long). I’ve been platinum for a while now but the maintenance is just getting to be too much, even for a jaded dye-addict like … Continue reading THINK PINK (OR SHOULD THAT BE PEACH?)
As you will know if you follow this blog, I’ve had blonderexia for quite a while now. Although at first it only manifested itself as a highlighted shade, a couple of months ago it progressed to full-blown bleached platinum. The upkeep isn’t exactly a dream (roots start to properly show after about five days but if you look extra closely you can see black spots … Continue reading TO BLEACH OR NOT TO BLEACH?
Other than fashion, one of my major loves is hair colour. The whole process has really intrigued me for a while now and I stalk famous colourists Instagram accounts obsessively, looking for inspiration (and generally because I’m in awe of them!). I also write pretty regularly for Beauty Editor about hair colour which is great since my editor is also my kindred hair spirit, Michelle … Continue reading THE BIG PINK
Recently I’ve been feeling a change ahead. During secondary school I’d literally dye my hair every other month – I’ve been blonde, bleached blonde, light, dark and medium brown, red, dark red, light red… You get the point. Since starting college I’ve only dyed my hair twice, only in browns similar to my current shade – a bit boring but I’ve been prohibited from anything … Continue reading SOFT SILVER
