blonde ambition

Lipstick - MAC Petals & Peacocks

I am blonde. Blonder. And so unbelievably happy with my new colour. A creamy white blonde has been my sometimes unachievable dream ever since I ditched the red last year. I wanted to turn my warm golden tones of two months ago to a cooler, brighter, whiter blonde which, if my plan comes together, will lend itself to some pastel pink and lilac dip dying in the near future. I had half a head of highlights as I didn't want the colour to become too dense all over; I like to keep a few different threads of colour running through my hair. I had my locks blown dried straight at the hairdressers (I never wear my hair poker straight nowadays since I've embraced my natural curls) and was left marvelling at how long it has gotten. I am going back in six weeks time for a whole head of highlights on the one condition that I have my ratty ends trimmed, a small price to pay I feel to be one step close to my blonde ambition.

I apologise for being a bit AWOL recently. Blogging has taken a bit of a back seat whilst I have been moving abode, heaving boxes up and down stairs, unpacking numerous hoarded items and generally trying to settle myself. There was a time when lipstick shades used to fill my thoughts, now it is all about lampshades...momentarily anyway! I have generated the winner of my Benefit gift set giveaway, thank you all who entered, and the lucky lady is... KatieCakes. Well done Katie.
