Purple Quartz Good Fortune Amethyst Necklace By Happiness Boutique


Over the last few years I have become increasingly interested in using crystals to help me create the right tone and mood in my life. I'm slowly learning which crystal works best for each situation and will often ensure Im wearing a certain crystal to accompany a specific occasion or to help me through a particular challenge.

Beautiful Amethyst

As well as placing crystals around my home and in my car, I love to incorporate them in my accessories and at the moment I'm reaching for the all round feel good energy offered by Amethyst.
Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience. I've been starting to mediate a lot recently and find holding a small amethyst helps me clear my brain from all the usual noise.


I find Amethyst is particularly good for when I'm feeling I need to work on my inner cheerleader and to help create a bit of a force field from the daily rigours of people/media/news.


Even if you think using Crystals for healing or mindfulness is a bit too woo woo there is no denying they are incredibly beautiful. This Purple Quartz Amethyst necklace by Happiness Boutique is one of my current favourite pieces to wear. It complements my hair and Ive even brought a new top to match it. At only £13.15 its also really affordable too. 
The team at Happiness Boutique also sent me the beautiful Moon and Star necklace in Rose Gold which you can see in this video.


*I never lie to you dear readers-this item was gifted too review.

Unicorn Cruelty Free Hair Dye With Superdrug

The team at Superdrug recently sent me a whole host of hair dye goodies from their Pick & Mix range. I have been particularly  excited to try these as they are cruelty free, vegan and offer a whole rainbow of colour choices. Whats not to love.



Along with my usual Pink Pizazz shade from Colour Freedom (which is my go to pink) they also included a yellow, coral, purple and  blue. In addition to the colours they also sent me a chalk finish product to add to the neat dye so I could create muted soft variants on each colour.




When life gives you lemons make lemonade and when the postman brings you a rainbow of hair dyes then I think the challenge is to create unicorn inspired hair. Challenge accepted-here is how it turned out.
I have been using the pink shade of colour freedom for a while so was already familiar with the constancy and strength of the product. These dyes are incredibly user friendly so ideal if you are an inexperienced hair colourist 
For my unicorn themed hair I asked my friend Leanne to help and we first of all created a base coat of light pink underneath, then we sectioned off my hair. 



Using the chalk finish (which has the consistently of conditioner) we mixed some soft pastel shades and using foil created strips of colour.

I left it on for about thirty minutes and was left with some beautiful muted shades. As I like my hair to really "pop" I did go back over the blue and purple shades again to build on the rainbow hues.

How pretty are these colours-I am particularly loving the greens and blues

What I really like about the Pick & Mix range is that it can create really soft shades (ideal if you just want to ombre your ends or add a few streaks) but if you reapply or leave on longer it creates a more pigmented look.
In terms of colour stay these colours last about three weeks but I do wash my hair a lot as its very fine so if you are a once a weak washer you will probably get longer. My hair is pre-lightened with bleach as my natural colour is quite dark.


Its so exciting that a high street chain like Superdrug are bringing out such affordable, cruelty free hair dyes. It allows me to indulge my unicorn hair cravings without toppling my vegan princess crown.
The Pick & Mix range is available from Superdrug
I also filmed a Youtube video of how I created this look-here it is.
