Please Bare With Me!

Devi Sorry for the lack of updates and everything, after job hunting for *so* long I have finally started a full time permanent job!
This unfortunately means I don't have as much time to blog (not that I did before!), but I will try and get my butt in gear to get posts scheduled for Friday's, fingers crossed!
In the mean time I leave you with a picture of my kitty...

Ravelry & Crochet

For Christmas I asked for a crochet needle and an Amigurumi book so I could learn how to crochet! I have made a few things now and have also started an account on Ravelry.
Here are a few photographs of the things I have made!

Teddy bear head

This was my first attempt at crocheting something! I had done small test patches before hand, he's pretty good for a first attempt though!

Knit your own ninja!
Mini Ninja
Also for Christmas I got a 'Knit Your Own Mini Ninja' kit, this isn't crochet, but I still think he deserves a view! (I've been able to knit since I was a child, nothing complicated however!)

Teddy bear egg

This was my second attempt at crocheting, and I think he came out really well! Was also my first attempt at changing colour's half way through.

Now, this isn't finished, but I'm putting him up here as im rather pleased with how he's turned out so far! All I have left to put on his eyes and he's done!

Lion Phone Charm
This was my first time of using a 2.5mm crochet hook, as the smallest I had been using before was a 4mm, so that was a bit difficult to get used to. He came out ok, although I am not 100% happy with him!

Hope you enjoyed some of my creations! As soon as I have perfected my technique somewhat I will start putting some up for sale in my Etsy shop!

Live Color XXL - Colour Foam

So today I decided to buy the new hair dye from Schwarzkopf, Live Color XXL Shake It Up Colour Foam in 589 - red berry passion.
This is my attempt at 'reviewing' it!

Here's the new hair dye.

My hair before dying, I had it professionally dyed (18th November 2010) and it's faded considerably within the last 2 months.

Here's the colour just after placing the foam in my hair, really bright! Please excuse my poor attempt at application.

After 20mins of developing, turning into a really deep colour.

This is the result after blow-drying.

Overall I think it's a good hair dye, although I managed to drip it everywhere (probably needs more 'shakes' than 40 like it says on the tub), and be prepared for it go everywhere when you wash it out. The overall easiness of it was a lot better than a conventional liquid dye, as you can slap it on and massage it in, the end result was not as bright as I was hoping for, but it looks exactly like how my hair was dyed at the salon. Also it was suppose to have a berry like smell, but it smells like berries mixed with chemicals!
Would I buy this again? Yes.
So if you're thinking of trying this, I would say, go for it!
