Revolution Rainbow Drops Review.

Revolution Rainbow Drops Review.

Hello my lovelies! I hope you’ve had a good week so far and have been enjoying the slightly warmer weather (if we can even call it warmer haha we’re still under 10 degrees celsius)! So, this week I’ve been taking some time for selfcare, and one of the things I decided to do was to look after and tone my hair. You may have noticed from my other posts over the last few weeks that my hair is now pink!

I had pink hair once for about a week, and that was when I first shaved my head. I loved the colour, but at the time it was too big of a change for me and I only kept it for a week, but then about a month or two ago I took the plunge and went pink again, and I absolutely love it!

This weekend I spent some time bleaching and toning my roots. Since bright hair colours fade fairly fast I’ve taken to toning my hair every 5-7 weeks to keep my hair vibrant. And to do that I’ve picked up some Revolution rainbow hair drops in ‘pink rays’ and ‘peach rays’ to try out, and I figured why not review them for you as I think they’re fairly new!

Pink and Peach Rays Revolution Rainbow Drops

The hair drops have around 300 drops in a post, and are used with conditioner and is applied like a hair mask. To get the colour you want you just add the number of drops into the conditioner until you get the colour you want. You can also check the colour with the number of drops you need with the colour chart on the box.

Pink and Peach Rays Revolution Rainbow Drops

First impressions of the drops are that they’re quite gloopy and are very pigmented. I used about 25 of pink and 10 of peach to make my colour the first time I toned my hair and then I just winged it the second time until it was a colour I wanted. The conditioner I decided to use was a from superdrugs own ‘fruity’ range of hair products, I picked it up at the same time I picked up the drops.

I’ll admit, when I looked online at reviews I saw that these drops worked for some people and did nothing for others so I was a bit skeptical, but figured that for the price it was worth a try and if they worked for me then I’d definitely get more than my money’s worth.

Here’s what my hair looked like before, during and after the toning:

And here’s what my hair looks like now that it’s dry:

I have to say, when I washed out the toner (the time I didn’t count how many drops I used – probably around 25/30 pink and 20 peach) my hair was looking like it was going to be neon, and to be honest I absolutely love it! My hair has never been so vibrant and pink is definitely a colour that I’ll have for quite some time.

My overall review on the Rainbow Hair Drops by Revolution is that they worked amazingly on my bleached hair, and I was able to get a completely unique colour for my hair which I love. Plus, I love that it’s a pigment dropper that will last a long time and all you need is a colourless conditioner; so not only was the colour payoff great for me, but my hair was also left feeling super nourished and shiny.

I’d one hundred percent recommend these to anyone who has pink hair, and if I decide to go another colour I’ll definitely look into using their colour drops to tone my hair; at the moment they’ve got pink, peach, lilac, silver and blue available at superdrug. I believe they’re priced at £9.99 per bottle which if you think about it is very cheap for a toner that has 300 drops in it and all you have to do is decide how much you want to use for the shade you want. I’d be very interested to see how their other colour drops look on others hair, especially the lilac and blue droppers (blue hair unfortunately isn’t my colour, but I may try lilac in the future if I fancy switching up colours!).

I think the results you’ll get with these will depend on your hair and it’s current condition,; for me, my hair had been bleached twice once with 30 volume developer and another with 20 volume and then I had a previous pastel pink demi permanent colour which had faded out. With most bright and pastel tones they’ll show up better on light natural blonde or bleached hair, and my hair sucks up pigment pretty quickly and easily which is likely why I am able to get such a bold shade.

What hair colours have you been? What was your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

And with that, I’m going to go and have a pyjama day! Have a great rest of your week my lovelies!!

Love,

Autumn Staples

Autumn Staples

Autumn is finally upon us! Which means colder weather, warm hearty food and Halloween. Autumn and Winter are quite possibly my favourite times of year. Actually, they definitely are. I love everything about the colder seasons; I prefer cold weather as some of you may already know (see my post about being pale in summer for reasons why!), the food, Christmas and of course the clothes.

Which brings me to this post, my Autumn Staples! (You can find all of these items at NewLook!)

First staple for the season: Tartan!

I love tartan clothes and Autumn is the best time for them. They always remind of Clueless and their outfits are so chic!

Second staple: Corduroy.

So, corduroy, it’s the fabric we all wore in the 90’s it feels like and it’s made a come back! Particularly in skirts, which is actually great because it’s quite a warm fabric and looks great paired with thick or patterned tights!

On to staple three: Burgundy, Mustard and Plum.

These are colours that come back in fashion near enough every Autumn and winter, they’re just great colours for the season.

Number four is another lot of colours: Pastels.

Pastel colours typically remind me of Winter and Spring, but I think they can look great when paired with some of the warmer, darker colours they can look great for Autumn too.

My fifth Autumn staple is: Bold patterns.

Bold patterns tend to look good throughout the year, but they seem to be making a bigger impact than usual this season! Especially check patterns!

Autumn staple six is: All black everything with bright/bold accessories.

I love how much of a statement this is. All of the focus goes on your accessories which makes picking them out in the morning a lot of fun. My personal favourite combo at the moment for this style is a baggy roll neck jumper, high waisted skinny jeans, bright red boots, bright blue bag and a bright yellow necklace. This sort of outfit goes really well with any stand out shoes and accessories to be honest, the bolder the better!

My final Autumn staple is: Comfy Jumpers.

I won’t lie, if I could get away with wearing a comfy oversized jumper, scarf, leggings, chunky socks and boots everyday, I definitely would. I love that aesthetic over all others. Pretty much because I think it can look super cute and I’m a sucker for comfort.

So that’s my Autumn staples! What are you wearing this season? Let me know in the comments or tag me in your instas @theweightofmyworlds so I can see your lovely faces and clothes! Have a great weekend everyone! Love,

Wedding Guest Outfits 2018

Wedding Guest Outfits 2018

I love weddings, partly because I’m a romantic and I love love. However, I don’t know about you, but when that invitation arrives in the post (after the initial yay someone’s getting married and has found the love of their life) one of the thoughts that come in my head is “What am I going to wear?!”. Do you get this too? I hope I’m not the only one.

As someone who pretty much lives in jeans and t-shirts, the lead up to the wedding usually involves about 1 million hours spent on Pinterest looking for outfit inspiration and another million spent looking online for that special something to wear. That’s why I’ve decided to list a few different looks for you below along with links to where you can buy them!

And then after all that time spent looking online I’ll usually order about 4 dresses, send them all back to then realise the first thing I saw was what I was actually going to wear..

Because I recently went to a wedding, last weekend to be exact, I have been on the hunt for outfits which are comfortable in this Summer heat, whilst being pretty and a little different to what you usually see at weddings.

If you’re looking for some initial inspiration for yourself, below is my Pinterest board of wedding guest looks, and here’s the link to my previous post about fashion statements.

You can get all of these outfits from ASOS! (not sponsored, I just love them!)

Here’s a few outfits I think would look great for a more casual wedding:

I love these because when I think of more casual Summer weddings I think about florals and bright colours, along with flowy soft fabrics that’ll keep you cool.

Here’s a few pieces that I think would look amazing for a smarter wedding:

I love the idea of wearing a colourful suit to a wedding, and just in general life to be honest because they can make you feel powerful, confident and sexy. Also clothing with lace, beading, embroidery and other details are good for any wedding or smart occasion in my books!

And if you’re really struggling to find something for a wedding, florals are always a safe option:

I’ve noticed that by searching through hundreds of wedding guest outfit pages online that a lot of them are in pastel colours! Now I love pastel colours, and I agree that they look good for weddings, but why aren’t more bright colours recommended online in these pages? Bright colours look good at weddings too and they won’t distract from the bride because they’ll be in a gorgeous wedding dress or suit or whatever!

At the end of the day, wear what you’re comfortable in, whether it’s a dress, jumpsuit or trousers and a blazer, after all you’ll have more fun if you aren’t worrying about how you look!

Hope this gives you some ideas if you’re off to a wedding anytime soon! Love,
