A new hairstyle...

Hi all!
       Firstly a Merry Christmas Eve eve, I'm also sorry for not blogging in a while, I've been super busy (I think one of my new year's resolutions will be to blog more!).

On Monday I went to my local hairdressers to get my hair done and I've finally got it the way it want it (coppery/ginger, shoulder length with a fringe).

I'd been blonde for nearly 3 years and during the summer holidays I watched Switched at Birth and one of the main characters, Daphne, had ginger/ coppery hair.

I then fell in love with her hair colour and decided I wanted to dye my hair ginger as it looked beautiful. 
I also thought going ginger would suit me as I'm quite pale and by dying my hair it would bring out the warmness of my features.

Besides getting my hair dyed I had a Milk Mask Hot Towel treatment and it was HEAVEN! It was super relaxing and it made my hair a) smell lush b) feel soft and silky.

As I hadn't had my hair hadn't been cut in a while I needed a bit cutting off so I got it cut up to shoulder length (which I prefer anyway as it makes my hair easy to manage) My hairdresser also convinced me to get a "sweepy" fringe put in, so I now have a fringe as well.

My new hair!
Overall I love my new hair as this is how I've wanted it for ages and the colour really suits me.

A Room Tour

Hello lovelies!
               Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I have been busy with college work and sending off my application for university (exciting times!).

During the summer holidays I had my bedroom decorated so tonight I thought I would share with you a "room tour" (of my bedroom)

My bedroom door spells out my name and I've had the lettering since I was little. I also have an evil eye on my door (bought from when I went on holiday to Turkey) and its supposed to watch out for "bad spirits"

My Bedroom

I got one wall wallpapered and the rest of my walls were painted pink. I love the design of the wallpaper and for me it has a "vintage scrapbook" feel to it. I also got some new bedding to match my wallpaper and its so so so cosy (although I currently have my christmas bedding on). PS you may notice something propped up on my pillow, that's my toy butterfly FLY which I've had since the day I was born.

If you look very closely you can see a message on the wall and it reads: I leave a trail of sparkle wherever I go. These were some wall stickers I got from Next. I like how it subtly blends in with the wallpaper and it reflects my personality perfectly (I'm all glitter and Sparkles).

Above my bed I have my mood board which I'm currently finishing off. It has photo's, cards, post cards, theater tickets, train tickets. All the little things I like to look at and remind me of all the good times I've had.

Opposite my bed I have a shelf where I keep my ornaments which I have bought, collected and received over the years. On my shelf I have a money box, 2 trophies, 2 candles, my lucky cat and various other bits and bobs.

Recently I saved up some money and bought a TV for my room (Yes it HAD to be pink). It sits on my desk and it's perfect for when I just want to be able to relax in my room.

That's what my bedroom looks like, what does your bedroom look like?
