Beauty school dropout.

Huzzah, I have dyed my hair pink! I was getting bored of the weird dirty blonde colour and I wanted to try something other than lilac, so I took a bit of inspiration from my girl Frenchy from Grease and here it is. It's not quite as pink as I thought it was going to be, and there's still quite a bit of yellowy blonde hanging around, but I really like it! I think I prefer it to the lilac/purple in fact. I used Directions Pastel Pink, in case anyone was wondering, but I think I'm going to try Special Effects Cupcake Pink next as apparently their colours last longer.
I don't look very happy in any of these pictures, but I promise you I am! Bitchfacing for life.
I have decided I need to buy some more pairs of kitsch earrings, I used to wear earrings all the time (severe flouting of school rules and furious rebellion against an all black uniform) but my taste has changed quite a lot since then so I don't really have many that I actually like any more. I bought these AMAZING glittery Andy Warhol/Marilyn Monroe earrings at a craft fair I was selling at a couple of weeks ago. I actually have another pair like this, but shaped like purple hearts, because the stall holder sells at a market in Durham and I saw them there. I'm actually really pleased I found her again because I had so much trouble deciding last time!
I had my hair cut and bleached at the hairdressers beforehand, and it went the most unbelievably cool punky yellow colour! This photo was taken by my mum, so that's why I look as if I'm about to laugh.
I have listed a few new pieces in my shop, including this necklace which I made after making something similar for one of my sample boards for my Multiples/Meadham Kirchhoff Textiles project.
Sorry I haven't been posting that much recently! I have been quite busy with working at the charity shop, as well as selling at some craft fairs, so I've been far too tired to really do anything post worthy. I do have some (hopefully) nice things lined up for you though (:

  2. I love the pink hair! Frenchie is my style icon 4ever. I just dyed my hair with special effects (I was using manic panic before) and I'm interested to see if the color really does last longer. The necklace also looks fabulous!

  11. I also love Amy Winehouse. Oh and as for the pastel hair, I have been thinking of going platinum blonde but then using directions pastel pink to get a peachy-pink shade. Hopefully this will look nice with me new pink glasses!

    I really like your mane!
