Roundup: Thrifting, Outfits, Benefit

Above are some pieces I've picked up thrifting recently, all over a fair space of time however. The top row are all skirts, bit of a floral theme going on, oops! I found an amazing camouflage hate that I nearly put back (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?) but I didn't, luckily! And a few shirts and t-shirts. I'm sure they'll all pop up in outfit posts soon

Here are a few outfits that never made it to the blog. I didn't really like the way the pictures turned out and it seems that that hat is surgically attached to my head at the moment!

I picked up the Benefit freebies with Glamour magazine this month (who hasn't?).  I'm not liking Bad Gal, even though I loved it last time I had one? It's just so watery! I'm still undecided on how effective the Porefessional actually is, however my pores are like moon craters so I cannot imagine I will find a miracle cure. I am loving That Gal primer though, it has a lovely texture and finish!

A bit of a different post today, I thought I'd combine a few things together, either because I didn't take enough pictures or didn't think they deserved a whole post. I'm trying to make my blog a little bit more personal in the sense of posting in the format I would like to read things in. I absolutely LOVE having a post to read by other bloggers that has more than just one topic to focus on. So I might try and make this a more regular feature (along with my others), just as a mini roundup of what I've been up to :)

On another note, I'm hoping to dye my hair very soon. I had a complete dye disaster the other day (hence the lack of posts) where I ended up with about 50 shades of colours in my hair ranging from silver to grubby blue to deep pink. I love colourful hair but I feel like I want to tone it down slightly (only slightly) by making the top half maybe a natural light gingery colour and having the tips pink, I've been thinking about it for a while and am adamant that I want to do it. I know it will fade very very quickly so once it has I'll probably just pop more pink on top

I am struggling with the notion that pink hair makes me feel 100% myself, how will I feel with more natural hair for a little while? But I shouldn't define myself with a hair colour, I end up only getting frustrated when I want to wear bright coloured clothes that only make my hair stand out even more!
Change is always good, right?
