Bleach London - 'Total Bleach' Review

Sunday, February 15, 2015
Boots - £7.00

The colour of my hair has been annoying me for a couple of months. Just last December, I spent £70 tidying the colour up. I was going for a sombre (subtle ombre) look, and don't get me wrong, my hairdresser did a fantastic job and I was more than pleased with the results, but unfortunately my hair just doesn't hold colour well. No matter if I lighten or darken it, it always goes back to a dull blonde, even when using silver shampoo?! I can't afford to spend money every month on touch-ups, it's just too costly. I needed a solution that would be cheap and effective.

I've followed Lou Teasdale (@louteasdale) and Bleach London (@bleachlondon) on Instagram for over a year now and I've always been meaning to check out their products. I've heard much hype about them and I couldn't wait to get stuck in. I purchased the bleach at my local Boots store for £7.00. 

Top 5 Netflix Choices (UK)

Sunday, February 08, 2015

Firstly, I would like to apologise for my lack of blogging. My last post was probably over two weeks ago, and I'm a little bummed with myself for the lack of dedication. If you're wondering where I've been hiding this past while, the truth is, my bedroom. I've been flat out with coursework (boo), I'm currently working on a new feature length script (which I'm very excited about), and the not-so-lovely Irish weather has brought us some snow, so Olly and I spent a good 6 hours perfecting Olaf the snowman last Saturday.

So now most of my coursework is done and dusted, I can get back to my blog - yay!

It's no secret I'm a total movie-buff. Seriously though, I could spent hours upon hours watching Juno Temple movies and you're most likely to find me at my local cinema on a Friday night (whilst most of my friends are getting drunk at the local club.)

I think I've watched almost every good film on Sky and I was running out of DVD storage space. As much as I didn't want to, only because I knew I'd fall for it's social-ruining ways, I bought Netflix, and, well, I haven't had much sleep since.

There are way too many movies to choose from -some good, some terrible. I'm here to share with you my top 5 Netflix picks!

Warning - If you're expecting action-packed, zombie invested Brad Pitt films, you may as well stop reading now. The following are most likely quirky, indie, kinda-romantic, Sundance Film Festival choices. Maybe.

Prince Avalanche (2013)
Starring; Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch
Director; David Gordon Green

Rudd and Hirsch play bickering road workers in a bitter-sweet study of male companionship. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that two of my favourite actors were teaming-up. For me, this film is visually stunning. Filmed in Texas, the setting is perfect. The use of natural sunlight really creates a peaceful environment. A comedy with a hidden, empowering message - watch and listen carefully to understand the true meaning of Prince Avalanche. Thought provoking and totally underrated, Prince Avalanche is a favourite of mine.

Fun fact - the movie was shot in only 16 days!
