Trainers and NCS

As you all know I have NCS (neurocardiogenic syncope) I'm constantly at war with my low blood pressure and trying to find ways to stop myself going dizzy and passing out. It's a hard struggle a lot of the time but I'm use to it now. As the weather is getting warmer it's making my condition worse and making me feel down, I wish I could go out and drink, hang out with mates but in my reality that's not how it is.

I realised that when I do need to go out and end up walking fast in order to stop myself from passing out as I have to keep moving or sit down, I needed a suitable pair of shoes/trainers. I had been looking at a few online and found a pair I liked a while back, finally yesterday my stepdad took me into town so I could purchase them they are Nike duel fusion trainers. Not only are these trainers comfortable but I'm able to flex my feet around them and I feel a lot more happier walking about at the speed I need to. They are also pretty awesome looking which is a huge bonus to me! The best thing about them is that because they are running shoes they don't feel like my feet over heat, something which makes me faint even faster, I get pins a needles in my hands and feet before I faint too and a lot of the time certain shoes make the pins and needles worse so i'm hoping these trainers won't.

I normally wear my vans which are lower to the ground than these trainers and I don't feel stable wearing them, they don't give me that support around my feet that I need where as these trainers feel as if they do, I've only had them a day but I'm so pleased with them, they were originally £54.99 down to £47.99 in sports direct, there are some good bargains there at the moment! 

MUA concealer.

I'm terrible when it comes to buying concealers I will literally try any, I can never find the right one and I normally just settle for collection 2000 concealer because I trust It to do it's job. I decided I would get some new concealer whilst I was in SuperDrug getting my hair bleach, so I chose to check out the MUA turning thing which I love turning (seems to annoy people) I picked up an eyebrow pencil in blonde because my hair is blonde and so are my eyebrows, and I chose two MUA hide and conceal concealers in the shade fair. I was very skeptical but alas they met my expectations, they are very creamy and cover my blemishes very well, they don't have as much in as the collection 2000 ones but for £1 you can't really complain.

 The one down fall it one of them has melted, I kept it in a cool dry place and it turned to mush, but once i'm back home i'm going to put it in a little pot instead. Sometimes I just end up wearing just concealer on my face with some mascara as I feel wearing foundation in this hot weather just melts it off completely, and because this concealer matches my skin colour perfectly no one can really tell i'm wearing it! Also it hasn't made me have any breakouts which I am so thankful for, being 25 and having breakouts kinda starts to get you down, I thought my breakouts would stop as i got older but alas they haven't so to find a concealer that doesn't make me breakout is an awesome thing for me.

I hope you're all having a wonderful bank holiday weekend, yesterday Tom and I went to the funfair which I may do a short post about.

Toning blonde hair with pink dye.

As you all know I'm obsessed with dying my hair pink and purple, I wanted to get rid of my ginger/brown roots so I decided to bleach them. They ended up going a yellow colour with streaks of silver in from the purple dye and the pink bits went a whitish colour. After a few washes the grey in my hair eventually turned green, I couldn't be seen with green nasty bits in my hair so I waited a little while to bleach over it which made it more green! So instead of using purple to get the green out I put pastel pink on top of the green, left it in for a while than washed it out, so now my hair has pink dipped ends and blonde/white on top with pink streaks.

Everyone kept saying it looked good with the pink streaks but as always they washed out after one wash and would you believe it the green had gone and where I had pink streaks it had turned a lovely toned blonde/white colour! The dipped pink ends I have are slowly fading out to a nice blonde colour too. Right now I'm using provoke purple shampoo on the blonde bits of my hair to keep it looking brighter and looking in good condition.

My hair normally ends up very damaged after bleaching, but straight after I washed the bleach off I left conditioner in it which saves my hair so much. When I put the pink in my hair I used an argan oil conditioner hair mask to mix with the hair dye instead of a white conditioner and it worked just as well, I did this because I felt that my hair needed a better treatment for it rather than just conditioner. Right now i'm very pleased with the out come out my hair, For the pink dye I used the big pink by bleach London, it's a very vibrant pink so I had to put the smallest bit with the hair mask to make it a pastel colour. I'm not sure if this method will work for other people but it worked really well for me, also bleaching hair can go very wrong so I am in no way recommending you doing it at home, if you do so you do it at your own risk.
