So I've been blonde all my life, but in the last couple of years my natural colour has started get dark and dull to the point where it doesn't even look blonde anymore. I've always wanted to do something to lighten the colour but I think I've got an irrational fear of dying it because I just think it will go horrifically wrong and fall out or something. Also I'm not one for maintenance and I knew topping up my roots would get on my nerves after a while.
So the next best thing would be the lightening product SUN IN. I've known about this product for years because my mum uses it (and her hair looks great) so I finally put it in my amazon basket to try out. So I've been using it for a couple of weeks and I can already see a big difference especially in the front section and I'm really loving it! I heard so much about it drying out your hair but honestly mine doesn't feel any different and I've just been using my regular conditioner. As you might be able to tell in the darker parts of my hair it does look a tiny bit orange, but that's what purple shampoo is for!

Thanks for reading everyone!

So this is happening. From the 24th of july to the 14th of august I will be exploring America! A round trip beginning and ending in Los Angeles with so many amazing stops in between and I can't wait! I've always wanted to go to America and me and my boyfriend have been thinking of doing this since last year as we really want to do some travelling together, and America was first on our list. Now of course we're not made of money so we couldn't of possibly travelled across every state, so our main focus is California then going to Vegas and the Grand Canyon.

Our basic route will look like:
Los Angeles --- Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo --- Big Sur --- Monterey and Pebble Beach --- San Francisco --- Yosemite National Park --- Lone Pine --- Death Valley National Park --- Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon --- Red Rock national Park --- Barstow --- Los Angeles.

We've packed in so many things for the three weeks and I'm so excited! I'll be doing more blog posts when we've booked our hotels and any extras like day trips etc.

Thanks so much for reading and leave any recommendations for what we need to see down below!

Hi everyone, so today I thought I'd show you a few books that are great reads which can also be used as décor for your coffee table or anywhere around the house.

Dirty Blonde: The diaries of Courtney Love
So if you're not a Courtney Love/Hole/Nirvana fan this might not be for you, but it's one of my faves because it's full of unseen photos, diary entries and full-on nineties nostalgia. It's got some crazy things from her childhood, her career beginnings and her marriage. It's a really interesting read with some amazing photographs showing what it was like to be in an iconic 90's band.

ROOKIE Yearbook One
I've been obsessed with Tavi Gevinson and Rookie ever since I first discovered blogging. I think she is so inspiring and Rookie is always to entertaining so I had to get my hands on their first ever Yearbook. It's a round up of all the best photoshoots, articles and DIY's from their website and it's a great book to flick through for a laugh and inspiration.

Lauren Conrad Style
What happened to Lauren Conrad?? Anyway, I've had this book for years and some of you may scoff and dismiss it but I actually really liked it! It's basically advice on how to dress etc but it also has really interesting moments like where she talks about the best vintage stores in LA and I just love reading about that sort of thing because it kind of fills my travel wanderlust!

Hope everyone liked this post and leave any other recommendations down below!!

So I thought I'd do a post today talking about some things I've been loving recently because I love reading these posts and hopefully you guys do too!
First things first is this amazing Jo Malone fragrance my boyfriend got me last week because I'm just obsessed with it! It's earl grey and cucumber which sounds like an odd combination but it smells so good, it's a really mature scent that's really fresh while rich at the same time, and it lingers for ages I could still smell it after several hours. I've wanted something from Jo Malone for ages and now I really understand the hype, I'm looking at the candles now...
Next thing would be the book The Memoirs of a Survivor by Doris Lessing which I'm reading for my uni module on Apocalypse fiction and I'm really enjoying it. It's quite odd but that also makes it interesting, so intrigued to see what happens it the end! I'm also loving this eye pillow from Tiger as I was looking for a pillow with a strange, unique print for my bedroom as everything else is relatively plain, and I think it fits with my décor really well. As you can tell I really like the whole 'evil eye' thing as well by this really pretty ring I picked up when I was in Greece a couple of months ago, I love it and its barely left my hand.
Lastly would be this Lip liner from Mac in the Shade 'Stone'. I love all of my liners from MAC but I've been wearing this shade a lot, it's a greyish brown that is so flattering. It can apply a bit streaky but I always put lip balm over the top anyway so that always help blend it together.

Thanks for reading everyone!

Coat - Topshop
Dress - Freepeople
Bag - Cambridge Satchel
Choker - Boohoo
Shoes - Brantano

So as September arrives everyone is off back to college or University, and as the weather gets cooler it's time to start digging out the jackets, boots and everything in autumnal colours! I always love getting a new winter coat and I love this one from Topshop, it's a beautiful colour and looks so chic and smart. I think it would look amazing with this cute smock dress from Freepeople (honestly i'm obsessed with everything of theirs) because this nude beige would look great against the soft red. All the dresses from Freepeople have a really effortless look which is great for college or Uni as you'll be comfy all day while looking great!
Now for me, I can't carry a really heavy shoulder bag so I always favour a backpack for school, and this Cambridge Satchel is perfect! For accessories this simple organza choker from Boohoo would look great with this look, and I also chose this brown suede boots from Brantano to complete this look. I live in boots through the winter and these look great because the heel looks good for everyday and a dark brown goes with pretty much everything. Brantano has a great selection of ankle boots at the moment so we're spolit for choice!
