BEAUTY: Dip dye/ Highlights



Hey everyone!
So, after months of waiting I have finally dyed my hair! The colour I used was L'Oreal 'Ombre' used for dip-dying hair but I only wanted highlights so similarly to dip dying I didn't start from my roots but from just under my eyes and left the dye in some hair strands for longer to ensure they dyed lighter. I also put more dye on the tips to make the tips lighter than the rest of the strand of hair highlighted. All in all, looking back I do really love the chocolate brunette colour I had before but I love the summer feel to this hair colour so I will keep it probably until around October/November so I can go dark again for the winter!

FASHION: What to wear to a Festival

Think Fearn Cotton, Kate Moss or Alexa Chung to achieve this look. There are a few routes you can go down to look 'festival fashion forward' with boho, hippy or grunge.

What to wear:

Loose fitted shirt
...and shorts. Quirky patterns are a must.

Or go ditsy with a floral dress. (Think Luna Lovegood)
Topshop also have a great range of sun dresses here.

Team with

Boots or wellies

...are a must in order to walk through muddy festivals! Kate Moss is the Queen of this fashion statement:

Floral headbands 
They add a boho/hippie feel to any outfit and make look so cute and girly! I love how Katy Perry dons them with a middle parting and big waves. Her updo offers a chick version to this statement piece.
