DIY GREY OMBRE HAIR


Over the past few years dying your hair grey has become ever more popular. This trend has definitely become a lot more mainstream since the start of this year, so much that high street shops are providing products to make the process easier. 

I had been itching to dye my hair grey for a while now and finally decided to take the plunge! 

I had two options, I could either go to a salon or do it myself. Ideally it would have been great to go and get it done professionally but lets face it, we don't always have the money to do so and I certainly didn't. So DIY it was!

I wanted to share with you all how I finally achieved my grey ombre hair, as when I was researching it before hand there wasn't too many tutorials or definite ways to achieve this elusive colour, particularly when it came to dark hair.   

Please note that I am by no means an expert this is just how I achieved my hair colour.  
Also I warn you if you have naturally dark hair it's a pretty long process!

These are the products I used : 

I'M JUST A GIRL IN THE WORLD...



HAT - SELECT
DRESS - VINTAGE
CHOCKER - PRIMARK
BOOTS - DR MARTENS


I love vintage clothing and was pretty pleased when I got a really good haul from a recent vintage weigh & pay event. That's where I found this cute floral dress, essentially for £3.75 might I add! After looking at the labels and doing a bit of research I believe it's from the 1970s.  

For this look I styled the dress up a bit by rolling the sleeves and pairing it with some very 90s styled accessories. I feel that the 70s and 90s go hand in hand fashion wise, there definitely seemed to be a heavy 70s influence going on in many iconic outfits worn in the 90s. 

This dress is a great little number for the summer and still looks very on trend. I absolutely love how the 70s is still inspiring designs today, whether its in the print or the cut of the garment. I have to say that this has to be one of my favourite decades as far as clothing and music goes.      

VINTAGE WEIGH & PAY

Don't you just love it when it rains on your days off!!

Well despite the dreadful weather I decided to make my way down to Birmingham on Saturday to attend a vintage weigh & pay event.



Now if you don't know what a vintage weigh and pay is it's pretty self explanatory, it's basically a venue full of vintage clothing ready to be picked by you, however nothing has a price, it's all about the weight. This particular weigh and pay is £15 a kilo and if your careful you can get quite a bit for your money, it's all about finding those light fabrics.  

Most weigh & pays cost to get in, its only a few quid and you can come and go all day as you please. Personally I like to get their early as there is normally a lot more choice, the good thing about this weigh & pay though is that they keep on replenishing the stock every hour, so not all the good stuff goes early.

I've been to a few kilo sales before and I have to say this is the best one i've been to by far!  There was a broad range of quality stock for both men and women. It was also very organised everything was on rails and separated into sections, there was also a fitting room which is very helpful as vintage clothing ranges so much in size!     

NOT EVERYTHING IS BLACK AND WHITE



DRESS - CHARITY SHOP
JACKET - CHARITY SHOP
SOCKS - LAMODA
SHOES - OFFICE 

This weeks outfit shows just how much you can actually find in a charity shop, this entire outfit (minus the shoes and accessories) cost £13.49, ITS CRAZY! 

So last week I was wondering around my local charity shops, not looking for anything in particular, when I came across this gem of a jacket. It's vintage, red suede and fully lined, I loved it and at £8.50 it was a steal!
