Ruby Red.

I dyed my hair red. Again.
The last time I dyed my hair was back in February, since then my hair has slowly turned into a browny colour. 
I always lean towards the red side, I don't know why but I'm really fond of that hair colour even though most DIY hair dyes I try don't turn out as light as I want it to.
Yet I continue to experiment with different brands.
This time it was the Schwarzkopf Palette in Ruby Red (#678).


I chose this shade knowing that the end results would be a lot darker than on the model.
Although it turned out dark, I'm really satisfied with the final outcome.
I forgot to take proper pictures of my hair before, but here are some that were on previous posts to give you a rough idea:
Natural light.

These photos are what my hair looked like the morning after:
Natural Light.

Flash.

I used two boxes as my hair is long and thick.
One thing to keep in mind is that this dye stains your scalp. However the hair mask that is included is SO good, makes my hair beautifully silky!

Diorkiss.

I love this picture of Kate Moss.

The next installment of my lipstick addiction post is one of Dior's latest releases, the reformulated Dior Addict Lipsticks.

Diorkiss (the shade Kate Moss wears in the promo photos).



Nars Sheer Glow.
From Sleek Paraguaya palette: Peach Gold on cheeks. Cameo and Stone on the eyes.
UD 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Stash.
17 Wild Curls Mascara.

Pros:
-Available in 44 shades
-Shade is buildable.
-Moisturising.

Cons:
None :)

I tweak the above shots of myself a bit but the shade is still slightly washed out from my camera. It's a little more pigmented in real life.
I don't know which one I like better out of the Chanel Coco Rouges and these Dior Addicts, both are really lovely and pigmented on my lips.

Do you have any Dior Addict Lipsticks?

Secure Your Place...


If you've been following my blog for a while now you would definitely know how much I love handmade goodies.
What I truly love about handmade items is that not only are the creators super talented and their pieces are gorgeous, but because through their pieces you can see how much effort, thought and passion is put into every detail. 

I did a post of Miss Yasumi's handmade back in November, since then she has resumed to making her 'shiny fings' and has built a extension to Worship at the House of Blues.
I've made two purchases since the opening of her Emporium which I absolutely adore!




Even the packaging is unique (every single one is different!)

Pretty Little Bows Delicata earrings.

Pandora and her box' & 'L’oiseau Liberty necklaces.



Obviously my pictures never does handmade pieces any justice, but they are stunning in real life.
Yasumi's pieces are limited, they are quickly reserved and sold out so make sure you follow her lovely extension and secure a piece of preciousness!

Sleek Paraguaya Palette.

This week's post so far seems to be forming a pattern - peachy, orange, coral products!
I'm loving this colour range at the moment, especially with the brighter days in the past couple of weeks, perfect shades for the current and upcoming season.

The main reason I bought the Sleek i-Divine Paraguaya palette was because the shades seems so versatile and most of them could also be used as blushes, hence why I didn't get the blusher in this collection too.




Top Row in Order.

Bottom row in order.



Top row in order-blended.


Bottom row in order (minus Bittersweet and Stone)-blended

Pros:
-10/12 shades can also be used as blushers/highlighters.
-Very soft.
-Extremely pigmented.
-Very affordable price at £6.49.

Cons:
-Limited Edition.

She's Going Lippie Crazy~!

Another lipstick post! 
In the last couple of weeks I've found myself lemming lipsticks more than anything. Therefore to satisfied my urge for more pretty lipsticks, I went and ordered a few. So look out for more lippie posts in the next couple of weeks!

Today I give you Chanel Coco Shine in Misia.
The Coco Shines are more like glossy tinted lipbalms rather than lipsticks...
Misia is super pretty!

Blurry swatch so you can see the shine :)

On Tissue.


Pros:
-Very light on the lips.
-Hydrating.
-A range of shades available, 18 to be exact!

Cons:
-The price, but for high end I guess it's an average price no?


 I really like this lip product and would definitely try more in the future.
Do you have any Chanel Coco Shines? If so what shade(s)?

Lord & Berry Mandarin Lipstick Crayon

Lord & Berry 20100 Shining Long Lasting Lipstick Crayon in Mandarin.

Long lasting for ultra comfortable application
Leaves lips with a shiny glamour finish"
                                                             -Lord & Berry

Pros:
-Very creamy.
-Pigmented
-Shade is build-able.

Cons:
-Not long lasting in my case. I found it just completely disappears if you eat or drink.
-£8, although the price is not too high I don't think it's worth it as it just slips off, unless you don't plan to eat/drink with it on.

A Walk In The Park

The weather has been so beautiful here in SE London, I used this opportunity to take a walk in the park with my mum and take a few photos while we were at it.
Flowers in full bloom.
Lesnes Abbey Ruins.



I also took my lovely cute Fujifilm Instax to snap a few photos!




I found out the Instax doesn't like bright sunlight :P Therefore some didn't come out or became blurry :( but I like the ethereal feel it gives.

Is the weather lovely where you are?
