♥ And finally the only thing that can really help lengthen those beautiful locks of yours is patience. Time is the main factor in hair growth so give your hair time and space to grow long long long!

Upon receiving them I immediately sprayed them onto plain white paper to see if their claims of a tinted colour was true...
As you can see they do indeed spray a tint into your hair, although when rubbed into your hair this isn't too noticeable, so no yellow barbie hair here!
These perform in exactly the same way as normal dry shampoo, making your hair fresher and a lot cleaner looking, while not leaving that grey 'granny' residue in your hair.
I found that the blonde version suited my hair colour more than the brunette version as it brightened up my hair colour, and the darker spray made it look more flat. I think the blonde version would be perfect for someone who wants to lighten their hair very subtly!

Overall I was really impressed with these 'tones' and they have definitely re-kindled my love affair with dry shampoo! A definite future re-purchase for me! :)

Summer's here in full force, and while wearing this outfit while prom shopping a few days ago I was forced to remove my tights I was so unbelievably hot, shock horror!
But really I'm loving the sudden visit from the sun and enjoying it while it lasts, because, as you know, England is renowned for not being exactly consistent in it's weather!
Sorry for the slightly strange angles in the pictures, I'm just getting used to doing outfit posts and finding the perfect position seems to be a massive task in my tiny little room!
Have an amazing Easter weekend my lovelies and don't eat too many eggs! :)

*ZOMGGG* I got attacked by an alien...
...or something to that effect.
OK, so maybe that was a slight exaggeration; I wasn't as much attacked by an alien, but by a fit of complete and utter boredom.
Revision seems to be taking over my life and I feel like I am turning into a stay-at-home hermit the amount of time I am forced to sit at home swatting, surrounded by piles upon piles of those damn CGP books (revision books if your not from the UK). There is only so much more of their 'funny' educational jokes that I can stand before I burst out of my little revision bubble.
My only release from this revision hell hole seems to be my ever growing makeup obsession, which is bizarre considering the only person I see while revising is Graeme, the builder. This, quite frankly, rather scary look above was created when I decided I just could not revise Nuclear Reactions any more, and I decided to vent my boredom on something vaguely productive.
The makeup is loosely based on a kind of Avatar-ish sea creature - inspired by my Physics teacher who looks worryingly similar to the inhabitants of Pandora - and was just a random Monday night 'adventure'.
On the bright side though, I did have a day off yesterday and got my prom dress- yaayaayayyyy!
Sorry if I scared you with my Avatar look and revision rage.

My hair and I have a very fragile relationship.
About three years ago I chopped of my lovely, long hair to just above my shoulder, thinking it would make me look sophisticated and grown up, however it seemed to achieve just the opposite...
I absolutely hated it!
Short hair looks beautiful on so many people, however with fine, flat hair I was just not one of them! As soon as it reached my shoulder it was flicking out constantly and I wasted hours of my life straightening my unruly ends into place. All that heat on my hair did it nothing but damage and it has taken me years to restore it to its original healthy condition. Split and dry ends have plagued me all the way through trying to grow out my hair, and only recently have I discovered my miracle hair product, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, review here.
As soon as I got the chop I knew I wanted long, luscious locks back, and my solution to this problem, influenced by my sister, was hair extensions. Clip-in ones of course, which as I was only about 13, did not match the colour of my hair one bit, oh the naivety of my youth! ;)
*Insert embarrassing picture of me in my mismatching hair extensions!*
After countless embarrassing moments of half the clips falling out at the worst times, and accidentally nearly burning them off with a soldering iron (whoops!) I eventually realised hair extensions were just not for me and decided just to concentrate my efforts on growing my hair longer, naturally.
I've never dyed my hair (although I was considering ombre ends recently- I chickened out!) but I did have highlights a few years ago. To be honest they made no difference to my hair at all! I have naturally blonde-ish highlights in my hair and the ones my hairdresser put in for me just did not show up enough for me to even bother putting in a picture of me with them!
So after months of struggling to get it past the 'awkward' length of sitting right on my shoulders I have finally got it to a length I am reasonably happy with. Nowadays I wear it in a side parting, wavy and am on a strict heat ban to prevent any more of those pesky split ends!
I'm thinking of doing more 'hair' type posts in the next few weeks such as heat free styling and how to grow out your hair, would any of you be interested? And please post any of your hair journeys in the comments, I'd love to have a read!

The colour of Hush is most definitely the perfect highlight colour for me, a peachy, bronze glow which delivers the most beautiful 'soft candlelight' look when worn on the cheekbones. It looks amazing for everyday wear and is easily my favourite highlighter of all time, so far. It also has a consistency to die for, creamy and buttery, and I just cannot get enough of this on my cheeks, definitely one of my favourite MAC purchases.
I also received MAC's Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara along with my Cream Colour Base purchase for free, woo hooo!
In a way this mascara is like two wands in one, with the purple part giving thick, voluminous lashes, and the pink part giving more natural, daytime lashes.

Trying to attain the perfect beauty blogger picture, showcasing your makeup to the max and having perfect expression/lighting is certainly not as easy as it sounds. Over the past few months I've accumulated quite a few mug shots/bloopers which, to be honest, are shameful! But hey, they were destined for the blog so here they are...
'how you doinnn'?'
My sister is going to murder me... mwahahahahahaha
Oh dear... I'm sure you've had enough of my unphotogenic-ness for today!
Adios amigos! :)
