FASHION: Winter is coming

Yes big love for Game of Thrones :p 

I cannot wait for winter, but that's probably because I've forgotten the craziness of last year's Scottish snow!  I just looove the clothes and fashion of winter.  I always fall for the 'luxe groupie' trend which Topshop and other stores always promote - heart the leather, lace and sequins.  And this winter gets even better, with all the faux fur that's around!!

I found an amazing faux fur and knit snood and headband both from Asos last weekend, and was almost glad of the cold weather yday so I could finally wear them!

I feel like a snow queen!

HAIR: Redheads do it best....

After a disastrous red hair dyeing incident that did not go well and took months, if not years, to stop rearing it's ugly rust-coloured head, I swore never to even consider going back to red!! That was, until I saw this picture: 

I was HOOKED.  The gorgeous red wine-esque, slightly violet, slightly pink tone was to die for! So I spent a month getting my dark-brunette hair in shape for the plunge (think masques and protein treatments).  

I also opted for this style of cut:

Even though I normally hate bobs! Yes, all change here!

My hair was bleached to an inch of it's life to lift the dark colour I had on there.  It looked amazing bleached though - very autumnal shades of russet, orange and gold.  I almost made the stylist stop right there lol.

So the outcome:

(DISCLAIMER: no pics do it justice!! It is full on magenta/violet and absolutely gorgeous.  Also an inverted bob which this pics don't seem to show!)
