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.

Such a cute outfit!

I love this outfit. It’s a perfect match to my personality. Girly-Punk. The floral dress adds brightness to the outfit and is a great introduction to Spring!

The boots are amazing! I love that the studs are only on the platform and heel part of the shoe and not all over. It just adds that tiny bit of detail on what would be a very plain wedged ankle boot.

The leather jacket is great with the dress as it isn’t warm enough to wear the dress alone. Instead of a cardigan, the leather jacket is more edgy! And since it is a plain jacket, you can easily customise it with studs (to match the shoes), a cute flower to add colour or your favourite brooch.

The pink bracelet brings in colour to match the dress and the other bracelet and the necklace are just cute!

Let me know what you guys think about this outfit! And if you think I should put more outfits together, let me know by liking this post!

Life after Death

(A post taken from my tumblr, http://dinadinosaur.tumblr.com , that I originally pasted two years ago)

On Tuesday I finally had a day off work, but my sister woke me up at 8am and asked for my help to finish off some work. She needed the work for that evening as it was her exibition for her degree (Product Design). So I went along with her to her university even though I was super tired.

I was pissed off at the fact I had to go and do something for her on the only day I had off, luckily she told me she didn’t need help any more at about 12pm. So I started to go home.
As my sister went to a university in the middle of a huge park!! I had to jump on the mini bus that goes from the university to the train station. As the bus was driving through the park, I noticed a tree that had been cut down.
Everyone knows that, when a tree has been cut down it doesn’t grow any leaves or nothing, it is dead once it has been detached from it’s root. But this tree that was disconnected from its roots completely was laying on the ground, with fresh leaves on it! And you could tell that it wasn’t cut down recently because the stump was covered in moss and fungous.

I felt something strange when I saw this tree. It was like it showed me that the world is still beautiful even though us humans are damaging it with or without realising. It was asif the tree was told it couldn’t live anymore but it fought against what it was told and carried on growing.Okay so maybe it was still connected to its roots but it didn’t look like it was and that’s what made me think it was so amazing!

Anyway I was happy for the rest of the day after seeing the tree. I had a positive out look on the rest of the day. =]

Just thought I would share it with you guys as it touched me for some strange reason!!

Unfortunatly I couldn’t take a picture of the tree as I was on a moving bus and was too amazed by what I saw to stop and think of taking a picture!

Don’t give up hope as there is always a way of getting around things and doing what you want to do.

Piano

The piano is the most beautiful musical instrument ever. I have three guitars, but the piano still wins.
It can be soft, dramantic, romantic, dark, mysterious, angelic, so many different sounds, so many different emotions.
The piano, is my definition of perfect.
