Purple Panic

Good morning fellow bloggers!

I hope you are all well rested and had a lovely sunny weekend. The Monday rain is surrounding me…*sarcastically* yay just what I needed this morning!


So you’re probably thinking, what the hell is your title all about? Mwahaha I’m not telling you



…..only joking.

Well…lets start from the beginning. This is a small insight to the way I look for all that are curious of my identity. I recently changed my dark hair colour to a brown and blonde ombre effect (see below…it’s not actually me). 


So this was initially what I was going for all be it I wanted it to be a bit lighter, but my hair was too dark. After a few sessions of bleaching with my hairdresser I had well and truly killed my hair and achieved a yellow coloured blonde…not what I was hoping for.

I took things into my own hands and bought one of these silvering shampoos…you know the purple ones you see advertised all the time. Do they work? I was sceptical to be honest.

Anyway, it arrived last week and I couldn’t wait to use it. Warning…shower talk.

In the shower I poured some of this shampoo into my hand and I thought to myself ‘My god that looks dark!’. I used it anyway obviously. Lathering the ends of my hair I went to wash the excess off of my hands. I look back at my hands in shock to see that my skin had been dyed a violet tone….panic. I check my hair and see a blue tint to it…OH MY GOD MY HAIR IS BLUE! There I am planning my escape past my parents to go and get some dark hair dye from Tesco or potentially having my Britney Spears 2007 moment. I had to try and fix this before I cut all my hair off…So there I am basically clawing the blue hue out of my hair and scrubbing it with whatever I could get my hands on.

Rushing out of the shower I quickly got the hair dryer onto the ends of my treasured hair because you only truly know what colour it is when it’s dry not wet. To my amazement I was starting to see a light grey/white fade. IT WORKED ABORT MELTDOWN MISSION!

So to conclude, silvering shampoos do work and don’t panic if at first you dye your skin purple…it will come off.

I’m sorry if this post has disappointed you, but I had to let everyone know my ordeal…thank you for your support in this tough time.

Moral: If you need a Britney Spears 2007 moment then you have that Britney Spears 2007 moment!


Good morning fellow bloggers!


I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but I don’t actually use my real name on here…(everyone definitely noticed).

Why have I chosen to be hidden?

  • First of all, I don’t want anyone I know to know too much about me or to know that what I’ve written is actually about me and what I’ve experienced.
  • Secondly, I find it a lot more exciting being able to express myself so openly without the feeling of being judged.
  • Lastly, I feel like Batman with a mask on giving me the confidence to fight bad guys and stuff…(it’s a legit reason).

Have I hidden it from everyone?

Yes pretty much, the only person who knows I have a blog is my boyfriend, but I refuse to tell him my name or let him read any of my posts…(as much as he begs to read about me). I don’t know why, I just like having something a little more personal to myself y’know. Even my family don’t have a clue! I think it’s the best way for me to do this.

The only way someone who may know me would figure out this was me is if they look at some of the imagery I have used in my posts. Or if you know me inside out and read all my posts you’ll know, but I doubt that.

Why is it a positive thing?

I think we can all agree it’s a lot easier to communicate with people we wouldn’t have a chance to without blogging with the persona we express…and it’s quite character building in my opinion.

I don’t particularly lack confidence, but I have met many people who have struggled with their self esteem and self expression when I was a tutor for younger people. This is quite sad to see and I wish that I had discovered word press blogging earlier to share it as a way for people that do find it tough to open up and somewhat self medicate…(breathe after that long sentence).

Why should we all recommend blogging?

Since starting my blog I have recommended it to a few people, one person being my mum. She has recently retired (party poppers go off), and I think it would be good for her to have this little pass time that takes up an hour or so of your day. It is something interesting to have as part of your routine which a lot of us lack. May I also mention keeping our minds active.

Blogging allows you to find like minded people who share the same interests as you and find things that you may not have discovered before and find very engaging to read.

I personally look forward to seeing where blogging can take me and hopefully come across many more lovely bloggers to add to the ones I already have!


Moral: It’s okay to be yourself, it’s okay to be who you want to be as long as you stay true you’re golden!
