You dropped your, urm…shoe?

Yet another blog post on my bus journey home. This is becoming a habit.

I was on a bus and witnessed the strangest thing. A guy comes on the bus, wear beige & brown from head to toe. He doesn’t have any bags and takes a seat at the front of the bus. He proceeds for about 3 stops. He gets off but I didn’t notice until I looked at the floor and saw one of his shoes.

How do you forget your shoe?

As I have small feet, my shoe does slip off my foot every now and again but it is something you notice!

What made it more strange waa the guy near him, wearing two shoes, stared at me for most of my journwy. As I got up to get off & catch my next bus, I dropped my lipstick. The guy staring at me picks it up and calls me back. He gives it to me & I get off wondering why he didn’t tell the guy that he left his shoe.

Then again, what would you say? ‘Excuse me you dropped your, urm… shoe’?! hahaha

Possibly the weirdest things I have seen left behind!

What’s the weirdest thing you guys have seen?

Super high price for Juniors.

Tickets for £165! SuperJunior have announced their London tour date at Wembely Arena and tickets go on sale on Sunday. But aren’t they asking for too much?!

Although I have not figured out if there will be early entry tickets, SuperJunior of SM Entertainment are charging between £56 – £156 for tickets to there first solo concert in London.

Aren’t K-Pop artists charging way too much for their London concerts?

Although I am not a K-pop lover, I forked out £100 to see BigBang last December. Now BigBangs rivals SuperJunior are also playing Wembely Arena.

I must admit I may be slightly biased when I say this but I refuse to pay more or the same amount as my BigBang ticket, for another K-Pop group.

I recently went to see Jay Park (you can read my review here), and I paid £60 for my ticket. Although I believe this price was slightly higher than I expected, I went along as I have loved Jay Park’s music and his body for years now & he finally came to London.

Although SuperJunior are more famous than Jay Park, they should consider that this is their first solo concert in London & many of their fans here are students and teenagers.

I am aware that K-Pop has a very strong fan base and fans are willing to pay a bit extra to see their favourite artists here. But £165?! Big international stars such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift & Blink 182 haven’t ever priced their tickets that high.

As much as I’d love to see Siwon, I am not forking out that much for a group I do not listen to or know. And I don’t like seating at concerts so I won’t get the cheaper tickets.

How many of you are big fans of SuperJunior & are willing to spend that much money for them?

I like writing posts on the bus!

Goodnight from my seat on 243 on my way home!

Love

I knew that I would have fun in Korea, but I did not think that I would fall in love. You know when you get the feeling that something is right and you fit together perfectly, even though you have differences, such as skin colour and the language barrier? When you see something so beautiful and you have so much respect for it because all you are shown is respect, even though I am alien.

I don’t care about the people who stare and I barely notice them because I am in awe. There is that sudden moment when I am in bed and think ‘damn, this is actually happening’. I feel like we were meant to be and there is nothing that can get in the way.

You ask how I can be in love when I’ve only been in Korea for one week. Well, you fall in love when you least expect it. I know that it sounds like a fairy tale but love at first sight is the only way to describe it. I do not know if the love is returned but I will find out by being patient.

I am in love with Korea.

Review: La riche – Directions Hair Colour – Plum

I decided to change my hair colour again!

I have used so many purple hair dyes, from so many different brands. Not one of them is half as good as La riche’s Directions Hair Colour.

I mentioned in my ‘Hair Colour’ post, that I have had almost every colour hair. Every colour except from Black, have been possible because La riche’s Directions Hair Colour.

First I’ll give a little information on Directions hair colour:

Directions is a semi-permanent conditioning hair colour that was established in 1981. Directions hair colour comes in 34 different shades which are all of intense colour. It does not require any mixing. You just apply it from the tub. =]

But I am going to review the colour Plum in this post. (If you want me to review another colour just let me know! I’m sure I’ve tried almost all of them!)

Plum is an amazing hair colour. It adds a splash of colour without being too in your face bright. I’ve had this colour before but decided to go back to it because it is such an awesome colour. Usually when using Directions hair colours, I have to lighten my hair a bit because my natural hair colour is too dark for anything to show up. But this time I decided to do it over dark brown hair (My hair was red, then I went over it with black, then it faded to a dark reddish/brown colour). It came out perfect. To me it looks black because the lighting in my house is really bad since there is no sun in London, but when I see my friends, they tell me how intense and amazing the colour is!

Directions is very conditioning and you can even mix it with your regular conditioner for extra conditioning (and a top up of colour without using too much product).

Le riche’s Directions colour does fade, but there is plenty in the tub for me to do my whole head 2/3 times. (My hair is shoulder length and very very thick) And even if it only lasts you the one application, I buy my tubs for £2.99, which is cheaper than any other hair dye I have used, to I’d just buy another one. It is also good that the colour fades because instead of having to lighten my hair with a bleach, I can just wait for the colour to fade and apply a new colour!

If you like bold, intense colour, I recommend buying any Directions hair colour. It has never failed me.
