Urban Glitter

Welcome to my new pastel pink hair. I've had pastel pink hair on and off now since 2009 and also dabbled in the colour as a teen (well that and blue, purple, green and even canary yellow). I've never been 100% happy with the pastel pink results which is why its never been a long term look for me. I've tried most of the dyes and toners on the market but never Directions so after reading lots of positive reviews and twitter comments on the brand I decided to take the plunge and try them out and I'm so happy that I did. The colour is exactly what I was after, perfectly pastel pink and sufficiently Barbie like. To get the perfect colour I used Directions Carnation Pink and mixed it with conditioner until I had the pastel shade I wanted. The other fabulous thing is you don't need to use much of the dye so it will last a long time and save me money, yay!

I really wanted to share with you my new handmade kawaii decoden phone cover complete with deco cream, cupcake charms and glitter. My friend Carla from Messy Carla (who also took the outfit photos in this post) helped with piping the acrylic cream and I'm so happy with the results. No one makes cute phone covers for my LG Prada phone, the only downside to having an android phone I reckon.

I love the little details in the watch even the Lacoste logo and crocodile branding are cute.

    Much love, my gorgeous.

  5. Firstly you're hair is cotton candy-licious despite me hating when people put licious at the end of random words. Also I want all your things including your watch cos they are rad. P.s. visited your friend in Koenji !

  6. LOVING the hair colour Hayley!! Just gorgeous. This outfit is all kinds of over the top wonderful. I adore it. And you know me and stripes, well I just think that beauty needs to come and live with me. ;)

  7. https://twitter.com/shirleyfracture Loving all the bright colours right now. xx

  8. I love your blog and it is great to see you doing well and get recognition in the magazine i love the watch and thank you for the opportunity to win carmitamranyzur@gmail.com

  9. I really like the hair. Is it permanent or does it wash out?

  10. Your pink hair is amazing! I still didn't dare to try out to get mine pink, but your look is convincing... I love the glasses too, I am after lilac glasses for some time, can't believe they are this cheap. Shame I don't life in Australia, otherwise I would ask you if we could have cake together again and again and of course I would enter this contest to win the pretty watch ;-) Have a wonderful day gorgeous! Love, Sara xx

  11. That shirt has been sitting in my 'saved' folder on ASOS for awhile now, I LOVE it! I'm not a fan of directions, but I think it's mainly because I like my hair quite vibrant. It's great for pastels. (I buy mine on ebay for around $5 including shipping from the UK)

    Yet again, I LOVE everything about this outfit! This year i'm trying to be more 'me' and not dress for everyone else. I've found as i've grown older i've toned myself done a lot, I want to be more creative again. Thank you for being an inspiration!

  12. Adore that sequin top! Might have to investigate one for myself...


  13. LOVE YOUR BLOG! xxx deahn.taylor@hotmail.com
