Oil Slick Hair, My Dream To Be A Disney Villain

I've had red hair for years now, about 5 I think. And I love it, I really do. But I've always dreamt of something darker, something more...Ursula or Maleficent and maybe even a bit of Hades creeping in. 

To be really honest I've always wanted blue hair but haven't dared bleach it to achieve this dream. I did however notice that the ends of my hair were getting very light, light enough to colour blue? Why not! I caved and bought some 'midnight blue' from Directions and boldly whacked it on hoping for maybe a bit of ombre? And what did I get? DISNEY VILLAIN OMBRE THAT'S WHAT!

I did panic slightly when I blow dryed it as it looked like a dark storm, blue and black and murky. Once I'd washed it once more what I was then left with was, oil slick hair, perfect for any evil character. 

In the sun it was beautiful, stunning blue at the bottom and streaking throughout the red which now had streaks of purple and almost looked iridescent like those purple/red/green cars you see around. 

I decided to pin curl it and this was the best decision I made. It brought the blue higher up and more visible and you could really see all of the colours working together. So in love with this hair. 

Long term, will I keep it? Not sure, I think blue will be harder to maintain than the red but I just really wanted to try it out. The blue will stay in a little longer but I may colour it again with the red which I think will make the overall end colour really stunning.

Stay tuned!

Review of Voodoo Vixen Katniss, finally it's mine!

For longer than I care to admit, I have been perving and drooling over the Voodoo Vixen Katniss dress (£66.99). I have no idea why it took me so long to cave and purchase it. I was a bit worried about the neck line, I'm not broad enough for my size really so I was worried it would gape. But the cute cat print and stunning colour had me at 'hello'....or 'meow'. When the Boxing Day sales hit I couldn't resist the discount so I put a size 2XL in my basket and ordered that baby to come home to me! 

For some reason it took me a while to try it on, I was worried it wouldn't fit and I'd be gutted so I kept putting it off, just looking at it lovingly in it's packaging. But finally I gave in unwrapped it, I did have to get my boyfriend to help me with the zip, my little T-Rex arms wouldn't reach. 

And how stupid did I feel for putting off trying it on?! It fit so beautifully! The only part that didn't was the shoulders. I'm 5"2 and the size I ordered is a bit too tall for my height, the trouble of being large-chested! But having my seamstress of a mother at home this was resolved in no time, just had to pin them down a bit - no big issue at all. I should be able to do it myself but I'm rubbish at pinning clothes on myself.

Apart from slight adjustment needed on the shoulder it fit so well everywhere else. I don't like to look too busty, which can be difficult. But I like a slightly higher neck so the cleavage isn't too out of control. This was perfect. Still feel totally feminine but also nice and held in.

The waist was lovely and nipped in also. I usually feel like I have to wear a belt with these dresses and sometimes the waist isn't nipped in enough for me but I could easily go belt-less in this. And let's not get started on the colour! Look at it! This is why I fell in love with this dress, it' so vibrant and rich it really does match all the pictures you see online.

I only have a couple of Voodoo Vixen dresses but I definitely need more, my next one? This dress in blue! They're releasing it soon in a gorgeous blue in a pencil and full skirted dress. Check out these pictures! One is a screenshot from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust's Facebook page as I couldn't find a picture of this version anywhere. So excited for this release, please be soon!
