The last two days have been rather hectic trying to fit everything in. Yesterday was mums birthday so me and my youngest brother spent the day making a birthday cake, we opted for a family tradition of a victoria sponge with mum's favourite butter icing. Me and saul decided to to add little cinnamon and oatmeal ginger bread men to the outside. It was great to get to spend the day with him before he heads off to uni next weekend. 
Yesterday morning i dyed my hair supposedly a red colour turned out actually like a black a little bit too dark for my fading tan, but i guess it will fade within a few washes. When i dye my hair i get it literally everywhere, i can be such a messy person! I also made my nails all pretty with my models own nail pen, i am on a mission to grow my nails...so that they get long enough for me to draw things on them.
I fell in love with this page from Coast magazine, I want to have massive shelves in my room filled with trinkets from the sea...one day...



  1. If you use a clarifying shampoo, it'll take the color out faster. I know neutrogena makes one, not sure about who else. I learned that the hard way [coloring my hair and having it turn black no matter what color I meant it to be]. Also, anti-dandruff shampoos like Head and Shoulders strip color away. Hope that helps!
