have you ever thrown a fistful of glitter in the air

until about March I had only coloured my hair twice.. both times i had bleach highlights and high lift. I had this done again in March and as much of a difference as it made I wasn't fully happy with the results. so when i had enough root to irritate me i bought a packet of hair dye (fully aware of the mess my hair could potentially turn into) and so I chose L'oreal Casting Creme Gloss in light frosted blonde. It promised a cool toned blonde several shades lighter than my current hair colour. Alas this was not the case. I was about a shade lighter and the difference was hardly noticeable. all that happened was my roots werent quite as obvious. Un happy with the outcome again I was looking for a blonde hair dye strong enough to give me light blonde hair without using plain bleach.. just to avoid the dullness. And so i found garnier belle colour in the lightest shade. I believe it contains hydrogen peroxide.. however it doesnt give you that same one colour look you get with plain old bleach. Obviously this product wasnt going to get 5 stars because its a packet of hair dye... my roots have a gingerish tinge to them however i am happy with the results.. I just need two packets next time as unfortunately one packet wasnt quite enough. I will be using this product again when i need to re do my hair (unless it is this i have had a reaction to!) my hair is now a light golden colour with a few tones in to give it that slightly more natural feel.

SO heres a picture of my hair at the moment. .. excuse the fact my hair looks white.. its the only way to take a decent picture using this webcam!

until next time... Laura xx

Time for your bedtime story...

"Kathy, Ruth and Tommy grew up together at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic school deep in the heart of the english countryside with a dreadful secret at its heart. Now thirty-one, Kathy attempts to come to terms with her childhood at Hailsham and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world."

I have just finished one of the best books I have ever read. It is called 'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro. It has recently been made into a film which has now been released on DVD (starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightly and Andrew Garfield) However, having not watched the film yet.. I recommend the book first. Ishiguro has written this book so well, that even with a rubbish storyline (which it isn't.. at all!) you would be hooked! This book is fictional, and  the later parts appear to be set in Kent, which is where I live so from the descriptions I could guess the places being written about. This aside The book is amazing, the storyline is fictional however it raises ethical issues about science (what a bore... right?) but not in an obvious way.. I cant say much more without giving the whole story away. so I will posts a trailer link ( Never Let Me Go Trailer ) If your not a fan of reading, I recommend the film because it looks amazing and the idea is very good. This gets my thumbs up!

Until Next Time
