OMG, I am like totes famous…

I did have an entirely different post planned for tonight but based on a conversation I’ve been having with someone about vlogging, (YouTube mainly, for those who don’t know what that is…video blogging) I decided to check out my YouTube channel. I’ve only got a couple of videos up there as it’s not really something I do at the moment. However, you may remember my brief post when I tried to ombre my own hair (here) a couple of months ago. At the time I thought it was going to work really well so I started to video it; it was actually a disaster but I posted the video anyway.

Now I know in the grand scale of things this number of views isn’t great but I was shocked how many people have watched this film, I was expecting maybe 50 if I was lucky. Guess how many I’ve had…gone on…guess…oh, ok, I’ll tell you: 1,168! That many people have seen my face and heard my stupidly young sounding voice in the last couple of months! Woohoo!

So that’s it for this blog post, it’s really just me bragging because I got a bit over-excited by my own very moderate success! lol! Happy Tuesday friends 🙂 x

Experiment – Ombre / Dip Dye My Own Hair!

Hello again friends! For those of you who haven’t seen me on a weekly basis for the last few months to hear me moaning about my hair, I have been growing it out for 4 months whilst I decide what to do with it. My last two hair cuts have been relatively severe to take a lot of frazzled hair off the bottom; too my bleach and heat on fine hair is not good! I know the bleach is the real killer but I so love being blonde that I’ve been completely baffled re what to do with my hair.

Finally, I decided I’d follow the ombre / dip-dye trend so that I could keep a lot of my blonde but also lay off the bleach for a while. On that basis, my 4 months’ root growth was a great idea but I still felt I just looked like I had massive roots. So, finally this weekend, I purchased hair dye and decided to do something about it. Having not dyed my own hair in about 8 years, I was pretty nervous but I figured I’d be able to dye over it if it went terribly wrong.

It didn’t exactly go to plan so here’s a link to my video where you can see exactly what happened. Note that I started the video optimistically thinking it would be a great “how-to”, now it’s useful pre-dye watching to ensure yours is better!
