hair chalking!

Hello! I've been thinking about doing a coloured dip dye for a while. I'd heard about Kevin Murphy's Colour Bug, which is a product which will allow you to colour your hair and wash it out. I'd been intending to buy the Pink Colour Bug, but my local salon had run out. So I decided to try hair chalking! I used a chalk pastel to colour the ends of my hair. I was quite pleased with the results and it washed out really easily. There are quite a few useful youtube tutorials to tell you how to do it properly! It's important to use chalk pastels rather than oil pastels. It can also be a bit messy when you first apply it so if you try it, remember to wear old clothes! It's really easy to do so I'd really recommend it if you want to experiment with colour and still be able to wash it out!
thanks for reading!

aztec backpack

hello! apologies for the delay in posting, been busy lately!
Just a quick outfit post today. I bought this crochet crop top when I went to Camden last week. I can't wait until the weather's warm enough to be able to team it just with shorts and sandals! I'm also wearing my platform plimsolls. I love the height boost they give and they're a cheaper alternative to creepers. Again, I'm wearing my blue denim jacket which I can't seem to stop wearing lately! The weathers been a bit hit and miss lately so I still need the extra layer. I want summer to hurry up! I decided to debut my new Aztec backpack today! I'd been looking for one for ages when I found this one! It's a good size to be able to fit allll my stuff! I'm still a huge fan of aztec prints, so I think I'll be taking the Aztec trend into my summer wardrobe too!

Thanks for reading! :)
