Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Schwarzkopf U69 Amethyst Chrome Intense Colour

I’m all about doing things rather spontaneous at the moment. First I booked a trip Oxford on my own. Now I coloured my hair using the Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour.

Now the thing is, I hate the colour of my natural hair colour. Always have – always will. It a really dull boring shade of brown that just doesn’t suit me at all. Seriously it just urgh. So from the age of 16 (that was the age when I was finally allowed to colour my hair!) to about now, I have been changing my hair colour to every shade of the rainbow.

I learnt early on that going lighter and having a tint of red suited me the best with my pale complexion. So I always gone for red colour. The shade gives me a warmth and a certain vibrancy I’m desperately been looking for.  I also at one stage wanted to be like ginger/Geri spice and I would drive myself – and my poor mum crazy with my red hair obsession.

Anyway as I got older, I’m still crazy for red hair.  But I’m also crazy for purple. If you didn’t know, purple is my favorite colour and I want everything purple – including my hair.  But If I’m honest, I’m also crazy for pink, blue and black hair.

This what made me pick up very spontaneously this Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour. I had no plan to colour my hair that day, but I was in Boots and I thought to myself – why not give it a go. If I’m honest, I don’t have a plan at all when it comes to colouring and like to leave it rather spontaneous. I just go with the flow and do what I feel like on the day. If I see a shade I like, I just run with it.

Let me tell you a little about the Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour:

Discover maximum colour depth with cool tones, metallic shine and an anti-fade effect. The Metallic Shine Booster, with Coconut Oil, leaves hair gorgeously glossy for a cool metallic finish. For healthy-looking, touchably soft hair. Available in a variety of unique, head-turning shades, find the ones that perfectly fits your style.

Sound amazing doesn’t it, so how did I get on?

Let do a before & after:

Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour

Quite a striking contrast, don’t you think so? Yes, I did coloured my hair before using this, but it was on pre highlighted blonde/brown that started to fade. So there no way of knowing what it would looked on my natural hair colour. But none the less, you are now able to spot me miles away (which is a bonus as I’m always getting lost in a crowd) with this hair colour.

The dyed itself was quite easy to use. It had the normal strong smell that all hair dyed smell like, but I didn’t really notice it. Simple apply on hair, wait 30 mins, wash it out till water run clear and then use the colour treatment conditioner; and then styled as normal.

I did find it a little messy to use, and yes I did stain my forehead a little. Don’t be a doughnut like me and forget to Vaseline the base of your hair before starting the dyed. My advice would also be cover your bathroom in old towels and wear an old-t-shirt, something you don’t care that get ruined. Also bring in your phone or anything else you can occupy yourself for 30 minutes while the colour settle.

I was pleasantly surprised how you could smell coconut on the hair treatment conditioner. Well ok, it was made with coconut oil, so I shouldn’t have been that surprised. Well I must say, the hair treatment conditioner certainly made my hair super soft and shiny. Very shiny. I mean you will spot me from the moon as it that bright.

Now if I’m honest, that one box wasn’t enough for my hair. I know I know I should have checked – but I made a rough guess and thought it might be enough. It wasn’t, so the result of that is I missed some section of my hair. But looking on the bright side, I now have this lovely ombre effect to my hair. It also only on the underside of the hair that I missed. It not noticeable.

Seriously I cannot get over how bright, vibrant my hair is. The package does say, ‘built in metallic shine booster’, but I thought that was just a marketing ploy to reel sucker like me in. But yeah you can defiantly tell it has built in metallic shine.

It doesn’t show it so much in photos, but this colour is vibrant. This is the brightest shade of purple I’ve seen on any hair dyed. I mean, normally I would see either a lilac pale colour – or a very dark vampy colour. This seem to be smack bang in the middle of the shade. I really wasn’t expecting it to be so vibrant. But I’m not complaining.

Overall I must say I highly recommend Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour. Especially if you are after a vibrant shade to your hair. I had no reaction to the formula (however, if I was you – still do a skin test before using it) and it had made my hair super soft and very very shiny.

Go on try Schwarzkopf U69 Chrome Intense Colour today.

    That’s a really pretty colour. Sadly I am horribly allergic to regular hair dyes, so won’t be trying it out, but I do like it #MMBC

    LOVE the purple! When I retired from the military the first thing I did was color my hair purple! You are lucky in that you have lighter hair. Mine is dark brown so I have to bleach it first in order for the purple to show. But I love how yours looks! Life is short, eat cake and color your hair!

    It sounds like the colour took well to your hair which is good. I only use salon quality products myself although I do it at home as they seem to work best on my hair.

    Aww it looks really gorgeous! I also don’t like my normal hair colour, it’s a very mousey brown – so I tend to dye it alot!

    It’s a really gorgeous colour! My hair is really dark brown so I’m always jealous of people who can dye their hair fabulous colours!

  • I love the colour – my daughter has dyed hers bright pink before and it looked great! Kaz

    Your hair colour looks vibrant. I used their blue dye on my hair but the colour didn’t come out as i wanted.

    I was going to say “I love how it’s gone a bit ombre” then you mentioned it in the next paragraph. The colour really suits you. I’ve never dyed my hair – I think I’d be too scared. Clearly I’m not that spontaneous.

    The next time you do your hair a different color. You will need to use toner shampoo multiple times. As with red hair your hair will not have the same results as the box. Before dying it such colors as puples, blues, greens. You need to get your hair as close to a blonde shade. It most times will tell you that on the box it’s self. Also it’s a good idea to have a friend help you put it in your hair. As they can see places where you can’t on your hair.
