6 Months

I can not believe it has been 6 months since I arrived back in Korea.

I have had the craziest time here. Good and bad. I’ve experienced more in these 6 months than I have in my whole life. There are a few things I wish did not happen but for most of these 6 months, I have had the greatest time.

I feel like the time has gone so fast but I haven’t done much so I am hoping in the following 6 months I will explore Korea more and really make my time here count.

I don’t miss London yet but I miss my family so much. They are the only things which is missing in my life a the moment. But me being here wouldn’t be possible without them.

What should I do in the next 6 months that I should have already done?
Let me know and I will write a blog post about it when I do it!

There are so many amazing people who I have met in the past 6 months who have made my time here so amazing (Nick, I know you are reading this and you know you are the main one).
When I was moving here people would always say to me ‘You only stayed there one month are you sure you can live there’?
Guess what, you should move to Korea and live a little!

I am looking forward to the following months. My favourite season, Winter is on it’s way! I want to feel the brittle coldness that is Korean winter! Let’s hope that more amazing things happen during the rest of my time here!

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.

Fringe? Bangs? Pt.2

So I got my sister to cut my heavy side swept fringe, into a front fringe.

I love it but it doesn’t look as good on me as it does on this pretty lady.

Maybe I just need to get used to it! I love it though!!

Now I’m wondering how I am going  to style it tomorrow.

Why is it us girls, well most of us, take so much time on doing our hair?! I think I do because if I’m having a good hair day, I’m positive! Well as long as my hair stays looking good!

I wonder how long guys spend on their hair when they are trying to look their best or trying to impress someone?

Review : Botanic (Boots)

Skin care is very important to me. I have always had clear skin that I want to maintain.

I haven’t used a lot of skin products but the best one I’ve tried is the Botanics range. It is a range of all natural skin care products that is avaliable at Boots (drugstore).

I have tried the eye make-up remover, cleanser, toner, day cream, & no oil moisturizer. All products are amazing.

I have partually oily skin (mostly my nose) so the day cream was probably the least helpful. It still remains to be an amazing product.

My skin is brighter, less patchy (different skin tones), less oilyer (is that spelt right? Is it even a word?!) & my skin is much smoother.

The cleanser is very pleasing because you do not use it with water. Water in England is a bit rough, so it tends to dry out my skin. I prefer not to use water on my face unless I have to. You apply the cleanser onto cotton wool & simply wipe your face. You will see stuff on the cotton wool that you would not believe came from your face! The Toner should be used in the same way after the cleanser to pick up anything left behind.

I would especially recommend the cleanser & toner but, the other products in the Botanic range are worth buying. Botanics has a good price & are usually on a ‘2 for 3’ offer.
