Not True.

As I am in Korea, I have been reading blogs about Seoul.

I am fed up of seeing posts about Korean guys only liking Korean girls and light girls. Or Korean people looking at black people funny and ignoring foreigners when they ask for help. This is not true.

I don’t know if people who are writing these blogs have actually been to Seoul, or any part of Korea for that matter, but I really think they haven’t. I’ve been here for one month and I have not suffered any racism, and this is what you are accusing them of when you say they ignore you or look at you funny.

I’ve had more problems in London than I have had in Seoul.

Everyone here is kind! Yes they may stare a little bit, but they are just curious! You can not assume that they are thinking the worst. I have an example:

I am here to study, so when I have a break I go to the shop located inside the university. The women who works in the shop always stared at me funny. I noticed but it didn’t bother me. After 2 weeks, she told my Korean friend that I am very beautiful.

Now tell me, if I had been rude or thought the worse about this lady, she would probably still think I’m pretty but she would not tell me. She wasn’t thinking anything bad!

Every shop I’ve been into, every person I’ve met, has been nothing but nice to me! I get a few stares, yes, but who cares?!?! People stare no matter where you go! I find myself looking at people for longer than two seconds too!

Also, I have had several dates since I have been here. I’ve had guys come up to me and tell me I am pretty. I am considered very dark in comparison to a Korean person.

We should not generalise people. It is like saying all Black guys like girls with big butts, or that all white guys like blondes.

Koreans are the most friendliest race I have met.

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.
