So I was at the Next sale the other day, which I never usually go to for two reasons: I cannot stand the hoards of people and because they seem to save disgusting clothes from ten years ago to put on sale.
However, my friend and I checked it out, mainly so I could get her a late birthday present. Surprisingly, there were a few things I liked, once I'd trawled through the paint-splattered leggings and blinding neon dresses. In the end I got some boots (which will appear in a following blog post) and this gold necklace.
I thought it was an excellent buy as it will pretty much go with any outfit and gold, as a colour, looks really classy. It's also quite heavy, which I love as I like weighty jewelry. And for only £6 I couldn't resist (well my friend kinda talked me into getting it)..

The title of this blog post is a quote by Hilary Clinton. I like it because it gets me thinking why are some of us so compelled to change our hair colour/style so often? Maybe Hilary is right, maybe it is simply to amuse ourselves.
Dip-dyed hair is one of my favourite hair trends at the moment. After two stressful evenings and three packets of hair dye (costing me £17 in total!!) I managed to dip-dye my hair. Firstly, I dyed my hair brown, and then I put blonde dye on the ends of my hair. However, the blonde dye had no effect whatsoever. The ends of my hair stayed brown, which was so weird; I'm still pondering the cause. So the next day I went back to the shops and got Schwarzkopf peroxide blonde hair dye. But then when I put it on the ends of my hair I could see them going slightly ginger! Once I washed out the dye I saw there was no need to panic as the end result was really nice: I have copper dip-dye now instead of blonde, which I actually really like, and it looks really alternative.
However, if you are really picky with your hair I would not recommend doing it yourself as the results can be interesting.. Maybe it would be safer to go to a salon. I am a bit of a risk taker with my hair so don't trust my judgement haha!
