Show off that beach bod girls!

School's out and the six week summer holiday we've been anticipating has finally arrived! This week i've been busy sorting out my summer wardrobe! From digging out a few pieces from the back shelf to buying key items to complete my holiday look! One challenge left for me before jetting off to the mediterranean is buying a swimming costume. Every year i always tend to buy plain, block colour bikini's but recently i have noticed that this season has provided us with so many different patterns and prints, all seen on swimwear items. So feeling kinda adventurous, i hit Oxford Street! High street store New Look has an amazing variety of bikinis and one piece swimwear suitable for all body shapes and ages. Below i have picked out two of my favourite swimwear items and what i believe will make you be the talking point of the crowd at that pool party!

Multi-Stripe Print Bikini Bottoms - £7.99
Multi-Stripe Print Bikini Top - £7.99
*Great bikini bottoms as they have adjustable ties at either side to ensure the perfect fit*

Green Palm Leaf Print Cut Out Swimsuit - £22.99
*Bandeau neckline with halterneck tie and beautiful gold ring bust detail*

Available from sizes 6 to 18 so they really do cater for all body shapes which is brilliant for an affordable and popular high street clothes store.

New Look also offers a great delivery and return service with purchases arriving to your door in as little as two days!

I don't know about you but that Multi-Stripe Print Bikini is already in my basket ready to hit my credit card, so why not visit to find your style!

Dip dye fever!

Today in London we could safety say - Summer has finally arrived! So you'd think I'd be topping up my tan in the back garden right? Wrong! I had booked an appointment at a salon in Central London to have my hair done! Today was time to give the dip dye style a try! 
Wherever we look we never fail to spot this hair colouring trend, whether it'd be flicking through a weekly showbiz magazine with our favourite stars, to walking down the local high street! 

 Dip dying hair provides a vast variety of outcomes, all depending on your choice of colour, your hair shape and overall style. I decided to go for a natural and gradual colour, going from chocolate brown roots to caramel tips. This was honestly because I'm not as brave as Jessie J to experiment with purple hair just yet!

What really attracted me to the dip dying style was the fact that even though the same technique is used on every individual, the result is always unique and captivating in its own way.
My main influence for my colour choice was TV presenter Caroline Flack. I love the way the soft and warm hair colour tones compliment her skin tone and girly fashion.

This was the outcome after 2 and a half hours of experimenting! I am really happy with my new hair although i would like the blonde tips to be much richer in colour. This was mostly due to my red hair which i had before being hard to bleach because it was so dark to begin with.

I think dip dying hair is perfect for the summer months. It's great to experiment with not only colour but also different cuts and styling techniques!

So why not give in to the craze and try it for yourself?
