Bershka Biker Coat

Aaaah I love winter, chunky layers boots and the colour burgundy. Around this time last year I discovered the store Bershka and fell in love with there products. I've been after a biker style coat for a good while now and I've now found the perfect one. This coat is in the most gorgeous berry burgundy shade and then has faux leather details on the trims and sleeves. The jacket is  little steep in price but for me its completely worth it as its a perfect staple piece that is going to be worn extremely regularly. Also I think because of the style it can be dressed up or down and the pop of colour is really nice addition to my wardrobe as I'm usually pretty monochrome. If you've not herd of Bershka make sure you check them out you won't be sorry but your purse will.

What was in my Birchbox for November

I really wanted to show you guys what came in my Birchbox this month as I'm pretty excited about everything which I'm happy about as in the past I've been  little disappointed. So to receive so many good products this month I feel a little blessed and I thought why not show you guys what I received this time and maybe it will inspire you to get a Birchbox too. 

Firstly lets just take a second to appreciate the beautiful mermaid packaging which is thanks to Skinny Dip London who have teamed up with Birchbox this time. Along side the gorgeous box by skinny dip you also receive  £10 off voucher inside too which is a pretty nice little perk.

But anyway on the the products the first thing I pulled out was the lord and berry translucent lip pencil which is great as I've been meaning to try one of these translucent colours for a while now as you can use it with any lipstick and it wont have an effect on the lipsticks colour.

Next product is the Ren wake wonderful night time facial which is something I'm really interested to try As I really like the sound of it. With this product you apply it all over your face after you've taken all your make up off. Then pop your usual night cream or moisturizer on top of that and the product is supposed to brighten and revitalize your skin as you sleep. Now that's something I'm really interested in so I'll let you know how this one goes.

Now I really don't need another mascara but I did receive one in my box this time by the brand So Susan. The mascara is supposed to feather out your lashes while also thickening and volumizing them at the same time, as I said I really don't need  another mascara but I'm always willing to try out different ones.

It seems like I get something from the brand beauty protector every time and I really enjoy everything I get, this time its a body lotion that has a gorgeous subtle sweet scent and feels really luxurious to apply, its also its really hydrating perfect for cold winter mornings.

Finally a real luxury product from Delrom, it's the Creme Aquacomfort which is unlike anything else I've used as I'm pretty new to the whole skincare thing. I have to say I have really enjoyed this it has so many good ingredients that sooth my skin after cleansing and toning  and make me feel refreshed. 

As an added bonus you also get a beauty treat which this month was some lovely rose petal nail wraps that are pretty cool, I'm not sure if I'd wear these as they're pink and it's a colour I just don't do but I love the look and the idea of them.

I think having a Birchbox every month it something every beauty junkie should do s you get to try out So many different brands and products and some that you've never even pick on herd off. this time especially is worth it guys so definitely head over and pick one up.

Removing hair colour without damage

As you guys have seen over the last year my hair has changed every couple of months. I've gone from green to blue then to purple which is where I'm at now. 
I've now decided I want to change it up again, a couple of years ago I had my first experience with bleach when I did a ombre. It was not a good first attempt and it ruined my hair, the colour though was very nice but my hair just could not recover.
So i'd like to do an ombre again but this time an almost black from the root and then ombred into silver. But anyway I really don't want to do too much bleach bathing the achieve this look and so I looked into ways that I can lighten and remove my current color. 
The method that stood out best to me is mixing crushed vitamin c tablets with head & shoulders shampoo and conditioner and applying it all over or to the area you want to be lifted. I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the hole process and especially the final result. 

So I used two of the vitamin c tablets and ground them up into a powder. I then mixed those with the usual amount of head & shoulders that I would use when I wash my hair. 
As I only wanted to remove half of the colour in my hair I took the mixture all through my ends and then took it towards my ears as I'm using that as a starting point for the ombre. 
I then tyed my hair up and poped a shower cap on and left the mixture for two hours, you do sometimes get leeking from shower cap as there is a fizzing when you combine the mixture but don't worry t'd not damaging your hair. 
Once the two hours is up I washed it off and then applied a deep moisturizing hair mask just to help along any hair that may be struggling with the process. Also if you haven't got two spare hours you can also use your hairdryer on the area you want to lighten and the heat with help speed the process along.   

As you can see from the before and after photographs you can definitely see the difference, especially at the front. For some strange reason the mix works better mostly at the front of my hair so now my ends are all a mousy brown highlighted with lilac, which is actually pretty okay. I still have the same colour as before in from the root so I guess its livable for a week or so. I definitely found the more often you do this technique the better, overall I've done this three times and I really feel like now I am ready to get started with my new colour. 

Have you guys tried this technique, did it work out okay for you? I'm loving my results what do you think?

Kat Von D Beauty Wishlist

You guys might of realise by now that i'm pretty much KVD super fan, and I have been for quite a few years everything she does is so inspirational. She puts so much work and love into everything she creates. You really do see and feel that with her products. these beauties are just few of my picks that are top of my Sephora wishlist.


 Firstly I'm obsessed with one of her latest releases which are these the metal crush eye shadows. There are eleven shades in total and they're all gorgeous but these three are top of the list. The first shade raw power in the most beautiful burgundy shade, this is by far my favourite and looks so versatile. Then the copper shade is called synergy and the purple called danzig. The formula for these eye shadows is just perfectly pigmented and has really high colour pay off.


I'm really not one for neutral palette, I've not really been one for the naked pallets as I feel when purchasing  palette it has to be something really out there and will lend itself to lots of different looks. But this one has some gorgeous build able shades that I think would come in so handy. I already have a kvd palette and love the formula and pigmentation so with this palette being completely matt it is so versatile. I'm also really interested in the hole eye contour side of this being able to make my eyes look bigger is something I'm all bout.  


 I've recently decided that I really do love matt foundations, I've tried out dewy finish foundations and its just not the same. I think this is probably because of the style of eye looks I'm into I think it complements those sort of looks lot better. This foundation is high coverage which is another thing that draws me to it as I really do love a full coverage foundation.

The studded kiss lipsticks now I'm sure you've all heard alot about them, right now I only have one which is the shade lovecraft. i love everything about them the matt finish the smooth consistency and the colours are gorgeous. The colours top of my list are Piaf, Noble and Wolvesmouth, the first two are a full on matt but the third has some gorgeous flecks of glitter which just looks amazing and I really want to give that a try.

Finally there's these beauties from kvd's collaboration with sephoras x formula nail.polishes. The colours in the collection are to match the colours in her new metal crush releases. These two are my favourites but the I love all five, if I could justify it I totally would get them all.

So what's your favourite out of these or out of her collection?  Do you own any of these?  If so what are they like because I am soo putting a sephora order in soon.
