Wish(list)ful Thinking : Autumn


I feel the itch to celebrate autumn now that it's October (My favourite / birthday month) but with the weather being anything but autumnal I can keep living vicariously through this wishlist here. Have a gander at it, will you? I predict denim dresses are the new dark floral dresses this fall. Denim is making a comeback and the 90's kid in me cannot be happier.
It's quite apparent that I have a soft spot for whimsical, novelty bags with my Pinterest board "Arm Candy," It's impractical, yes but isn't it too darn cute?
MAC is killing it with the new Rocky Horror Picture Show collaboration (pun unintended) but my mind is set on Lorde's Pure Heroine lipstick. I'm all for plums & dark colours this fall. Quite apparently.

Coloured Hair Must Haves

Coloured hair can be a hassle most of the time. Direct sunlight, swimming pools, sulfate shampoos are not your best friends when you have to maintain coloured hair. Back to the process of colouring, my friend, who's familiar with the process, did it for me. I'll spare you the fuzzy pictures but I got 2 bleachings done consecutively. I don't really know the specifications but if you're new to this (like me) I'd suggest to get a professional or an experienced friend to bleach and colour your hair. After an hour or so, she coloured my hair with Manic Panic's Ultra Violet, that I bought off Amazon. That was the easy part. Maintaining coloured hair is a constant struggle for anyone. I noticed my hair colour dissipating eventually and after recolouring numerous times, I've learnt the hard way that coloured hair is difficult! So I bought products that were literally my hair saviours.

Holy smokes, this conditioner saved my dry hair from being doomed forever & I'm not even exaggerating. Firstly it smells just like bananas and honey with a hint of coconut. I'm not the biggest fan of coconut scented products but this is a sole exception. I think I might just grab the shampoo as well.

INGREDIENTS:-
1 Banana + 1 tsp honey + 1 tsp almond oil
I decided to make my own hair mask based on this conditioner and would you believe it? It works. I mixed in all the ingredients and applied it to the roots and along the length of my hair. An hour later, I washed my hair with water and I was left with amazingly soft hair.

Purple Haze


It's no secret that my favourite colour is purple so naturally I dyed my hair purple! I had been dying (pun intended) to colour my hair a wacky colour since forever and when I had the chance I sure did. Something to check off the bucket list. I was a bit sceptical about colouring my entire hair purple so I decided to do a purple ombre instead. A weird thing I've noticed is that my hair looks navy blue in florescent light but as my friends say, "You got two colours for the price of one!" I will definitely write a post soon all about the process but for now I can't help but look at my psychedelic, technicolor hair all the time!

Things I'm Obsessing Over #6

Whoa there! I've already made 5 of these? I love curating these posts because it's a great way to showcase what I've seen on the interwebs. In a way, share my favourite links or whatever catches my eye. I have a ton of links to share this time so let's get on with it!

♥ I'm absolutely in LOVE with Alex McLean's aerial photography. From the picturesque valleys of Italy to the arid landscapes of Arizona, he's got an amazing eye for patterns & symmetry. Promise you will get lost in his rabbit hole of a website. The second picture reminds me of this Kylie Minogue video!



♥ Speaking of symmetry and conciseness Andrew Myers' photographs are of a similar vein. Some naughty, some nice, some precise. Head to his website to check out more of his work.

♥ As a graphic designer,(I never thought I'd say that but yeah!) I'm always looking out for inspiration and when I bumped into this lovely site called the pattern library, I knew I'd struck a gold mine.

♥ Human error is a series of polaroid pictures combined with emotionally charged computer errors. Let go?
