Brighton Blues


Flicking through my pictures, I realised I never posted about my short get away to Brighton with two of the bestest bestest people in my life. Looking back at the photos has made me want to go back so badly, especially now the weather is getting a little chilly and the clouds are making an appearance again. We stayed for a couple of days, sleeping in the Grapevine Hostel along the sea front (such cheap prices at this place!) and spending all day blissfully enjoying the sunshine. I'd been obsessing with going to Brighton for well over a year, and probably got on everyone's nerves constantly banging on about the place. But last summer I kept reading posts of trips to sunny ol' Brighton and  just wanted to go so so sooooo badly. After some time, my obsession became a reality and I loved it. Brighton is a beautiful place to be.
To sum our trip up, I got pooed on my a seagull - is that really good luck?, went on the pier roller-coaster, went on the open top tourist bus, ate ice cream, tried out the local bars, got sunburn, 
tried out the seafood (I won't be trying again, ewww), witnessed several sexual actions take place on the beach at 3am (naughty), walked around the Lanes which is such a cute area, drank milkshake from ChoccyWoccyDooDaa (OMG amazing), but most importantly because we were at the seaside, we had fish and chips. Well they had fish and chips, I had just chips with gravy and ketchup. My friend who's more northern than me -she's a Yorkshire lass- even turned her nose up at the combo but honestly it does work! I was a little sad they didn't know what scraps were though. Are they called something else in the south or is just a more northen thing??

I love Brighton and hope I can go back soon. To anyone who hasn't been, GO! But don't expect sandy beaches like my friend did. You'll be a tad disappointed!

I Need Your Help!

Slightly different post to normal...

I'm stuck on how to have my hair and need your help (pleeeeeeease). Currently, my hair is a mix of my natural mousy brown/blonde hair gradually fading into blonde locks. I even saved money on achieving the ombre look by just letting my roots grow out (#lazy). I would love love love to have naturally dark hair but I don't. Instead I have hair that's dull in colour, has no richness to it's look and just looks a bit plain. Don't get me wrong, on some people the colour suits but on me I just don't like it.
I spent years getting my hair bleached blonde and looking back now, i'm not sure I would go back to the same barbie-esque colour but perhaps a more honey blonde colour. I got that bored of being blonde that I went brunette for  a while (which did go a bit gingerish but moving on) and I really liked it. Some weren't so keen and when I say now that I want to go Brunette, it's categorical NO from everyone I say it to. Partly because without fake tan, I am super pale and so would it suit?
But then there's another issue, I really like the ombre look so I would want to go a light to medium brunette on top and keep the blonde ombre on bottom. But will this be too much up-keep because of my lighter natural hair colour and looking like I have grey roots. So  then the question is, do I scrap the ombre and go a honey/dark blonde all over which won't look so dodgy when roots show through? HELP!

So my question to you guys is what do you think? What do you honestly think would look best looking at the photos and judging from my past colours? I know pretty much all of you haven't seen me in real life so probably can't truly say which colour I should go, but I still appreciate any thoughts because i'm getting nowhere trying to decide myself!

July Favourites | Video


I've actually managed to do a monthly favourites post (horaaahhh). It is in video form as i've been extremely busy moving houses and travelling to Brighton (post up soon!) so it was actually a lot quicker and easier to just film it all rather than go snap happy and not being happy with the outcome. Though to be honest, the quality of video isn't all that great. Once i'd finished filming and editing, it was then that I realised that I was ever so slightly out of focus (doh). The quality has also faded a bit since uploading  and I don't know what it will be like for you guys but on my laptop it's gone blurry since putting it on Youtube.
 Annnnywaaaay, I'll shut up and stop putting you off from watching it before you've even began. I hope you enjoy!
