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 Urban Metallics Live Blue Mercury

Posted on

If you are a long-time reader on here, then you will know I’m always changing my hair and doing something weird and wonderful to it.

I’m the kind of girl who dives headfirst into something and asks questions later. I’m spontaneous and do things without really thinking about the consequences.

Which is something I did this weekend; I dive headfirst and went spontaneous on my hair. I decided to try out the Schwarzkopf Urban Metallics Live Blue Mercury. I’ve been every colour under the sun – but never been blue, so I thought with this lockdown in force, and I’m not going anywhere, I thought now would be the best time to live my blue dream.

I decided to try out the Schwarzkopf Urban Metallic Live Blue Mercury as it seems to be the shade of blue that would work on my brown hair. The blub on the packet promises to create metallic tones with striking colour intensity.

So, I just went for it and let me show you the results:

Results:

Well as you can see from the pictures, umm the result wasn’t so striking, and it looked a little weird. This was a case of perhaps I should have done a little research on this dye and probably read reviews on it as other people commented it didn’t quite turn out how you expected it to. Different people have written that the colour of the dye didn’t come out and it looked a little patchy in places.  Yup, that is definitely what happened to me as my hair turned out to look uneven and the colour didn’t stick or came out how I expected it to. The blue colour sort of came out at the top of my hair, but from the crown downward it looks grungy and greyish.

Maybe I didn’t keep the dye in long enough, or perhaps I didn’t section my hair, but I followed the instruction down to a T, and I got help with the back of my hair (yes I dragged my husband in to help!).

Overall, I was disappointed with the Schwarzkopf Urban Metallics Live Blue Mercury, and I do not recommend it. Perhaps next time I might do some research and read other people reviews before diving headfirst into it. But then again, me being the kind of girl I am – maybe not.

I would also like to say since I took the photos the dye now doesn’t look blue and have entirely faded. My hair now looks a greyish grungy and colourless.  Do not try out the Schwarzkopf Urban Metallics Live Blue Mercury as you will not get the result you would want.

    I think it looks cute! Can you reapply the color to the area that didn’t take?
    How long before you have to wait to try a different shade of hair color
