Review: John Frieda Precision Foam Colour

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by John Frieda to do a review of a new hair dye - a Foam Colour Dye to be precise.

I've been meaning to colour my hair again since I dyed it a little darker at the beginning of October but because of Ombre'ing it in the Summer, the ends had gone a little gingery (no me gusta) so I was pretty happy when this offer came up.

I've been meaning to do a post on this for the past couple of weeks, but my head's been cabbaged with work, and Christmas plans, and I knew I was getting my hair blown when I got back to Liverpool, so it was the perfect time to do the post. 

The mousse was super easy to apply; no mess at all, no crazy splashes all over the bathroom (there are a couple of spots on the bathroom wall that my flatmate questioned when I last did my hair) and super nice packaging too. Little bitta Drizzy there in the background. 

And this is the outcome! I chose Medium Copper Brown, as I think that's what the closest to my hair would be, and I'm really happy with it. 

I would advise ladies to use the foam mousse in future, it's really easy to use, and as I said, no mess.

Thanks John Frieda and Marina from Holler!

HOTS AND NOTS.

Hello lovely people. I thought I'd do a little hots and nots; I've not written a lot recently so I thought I'd share some love.

Let's start off with the hots.

HOTS
Vogue Magazine's Top 100 Fashion Online
So I was voted number 61 in the above list on Vogue Online. Bit of a mad one like, and my nickname over the past few days has been 61. It's also my new favourite number.

Nike Night
Last night was our work's Christmas party, and it was nothing but boss. Calvin Harris and Alex Metric were DJing which was pretty cool, and in general it was an amazing night. Last year's was good, but this year kicked last year's ass. Well done to the lovely lady who arranged it all. The theme was "You are Gold" so I wore a gold sequin skirt from Primey and a Kirsty Doyle black long sleeved top with shoulder pads. I bought some sweet black velvet wedges which made me about six foot tall but this morning my toes are still numb and my right foot is a bit delicate after taking a little tumble and last night being convinced that I'd broken it.

CHRISTMAS
I literally cannot contain my excitement to go home to Liverpool for Christmas. Being away from home for such a long time makes you appreciate it so much more. I've only been back home twice this year, so I'm super excited to go home, for like, two weeks. On Christmas day, me and la familia will be working in the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen, which should be good; something different, I guess, but most of all I'm looking forward to really "working as a team"(?) with my family.

Drake - Take Care
Quite simply; I freaking love it. This is one of my favourite lyrics from the whole album, so I'm pretty glad I found this on a Drizzy tumblr.

NOTS
Le Weather
This time last year, the snow was crazy. Like, blizzard crazy. I bought some Blazers and because they're boot-ish, I thought they'd be sound, but I actually just slipped around on their lack of grip. So this year, I found a pair of Lunarwood ACGs in Patta for 40euros, with pure grip on them to protect me from slipping and sliding, except this year, THERE IS NO FREAKIN SNOW. They're a good shoe like, but they're not the sexiest of silhouettes.

I think that's it for the NOTS; things are going pretty well at the moment.

Much love guys, going to try and get some outfit posts up this week.

Have a nice Saturday night!

Desperate Scousewives; My 5 cents.

A few months ago it was announced that there was going to be a reality TV series set in Liverpool, focussing on a small group of girls in Liverpool.

When I first read about it, I was shocked, excited and then terrified, thinking about what the show would be like; how would this eight part series portray the city that I'm so proud to say I'm from?

The trailer dropped a couple of weeks ago, and it didn't offend me too much, just a few cringeworthy moments, but so far so good. 

The worst part for me was to hear swearing bleeped out. (Not because I love swearwords, just because I think it's completely unnecessary to any form of swearing in a trailer. Turns out that the girl who's swearing isn't actually from Liverpool. Cough. Cough.)

Last night was the first episode, and being in Amsterdam, the closest I could do to watching it was to refresh my newsfeed on Facebook and to follow the #desperatescousewives hashtag on Twitter.

The fact that I couldn't watch the show while everybody else was, was killing me; I felt inadequate. I write a Fashion Blog and I'm from Liverpool. I just had to watch this as soon as possible. In hindsight now I'm pretty glad I got to watch it alone, not taking anybody else's opinion into consideration, and I didn't have to do a real-time update every five minutes - it kind of gave me time to enjoy(?) it.

After the show finished, the Twitter storm died down, but one tweet in particular caught my eye. 


So here I am now, firing my Scouse Wag apologist routine on all cylinders. (Sharp, I'm not sure if that's the right phrase? I've never heard that one myself.)

I've got to clear a few things up before we go any further. I wont be commenting on the cast members who aren't from Liverpool; it's not called Desperate Woolwives.
N.B I'm defo not commenting on Jaiden; he's f'cking vile and has a sweatier head than any of the girls did.

If I refer to "the Girls," it'll be about Jodie, Amanda, Chloe, Debbie and Gill. I've only watched it once and I know their names off by heart. Heavy.

I wasn't insane about the introduction; it reminded me a lot of Shameless when Frank is introducing the Chatsworth Estate. I hope that's not a reflection on the city?  

But you know what? 

I didn't have a massive problem with any of the show. 

The biggest thing for me was how totally scripted it was. It was such a shame, because I think the girls have their own personalities, and without the heavy scripting, I think these might have shown through. 

But I'm not here to write sh't about people on my Blog; I'm not Britain's Most Brutal Blogger. NOR A F'CKING WOOL.  

I honestly think the biggest detriment to this TV show is the production of it. The scripting is cringeworthy, and very false. The casting of the boys hasn't worked for me; they aren't true Scouse lads at all. I know Danny is, and he seems quite sound but the others aren't Scouse enough. The producers have completely played on all Scouse Stereotypes which is a little predictable.

I need people to remember though that these people DO NOT represent the entire population of Liverpool. But at the same time, they don't NOT represent the entire population of Liverpool. 

These girls do exist in this wonderful city of ours, and we can't pretend they don't. 

My faves so far? Chloe seems completely harmless and very sweet. You can't say that Debbie isn't gorgeous and Jodie's out of her tree. In a good way of course. 

I genuinely think this is a programme we'll warm to, if some of the heavily scripted shit could be diluted then this could actually be alright. 

Let's see how next week's episode goes.

New Full Up and Eating

I've always said if my Blog was to fancy another Blog, she would fancy Full Up and Eating.

I got one of their t-shirts last year for Christmas off my darling friend Bethany and it was an amazing surprise.

NB: Mttcx; replace BHM with LIV and you just got yourself a customer.

Going hard.

When I go running, I have to listen to songs that keep me going; I get bored very easily.

For me, Muse smash it every time. They're probably my number one band to listen to when I'm running, especially Supermassive Black Hole and Apocalypse Please. 
Muse - Supermassive Black Hole
Rick Ross ft Drizzy - Made Men
Rihanna ft Calvin Harris - We Found Love
Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love*

The White Stripes - Icky Thump

Drake - Over

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days

Drake ft Nicki Minaj - Up all Night


Kudos to Chris from www.runhundred.com who got in contact about some good running songs, especially for telling me about the Rihanna Remix.

This was my route from tonight; works out at about 9k. Even though it's not that far, I did go pretty hard.
I should do a couple of Running outfit posts, before, not after. I come back looking like a big sweaty hot mess. 

Enjoy your weeks, peeps.
*Watch the Marilyn Manson video on YT; 1.55, sweet child of mine; I remember why I had a teenage crush on him.
