Hair Colour Change

As of the 18th Novemeber, as I now have a temporary christmas job, I have had to dye my lovely hair! :( Boo! Went from bright pink to a dark red colour, which is about all I can get away with in a supermarket! ><

18th nov before

18th nov during

18th nov after 2

What does everyone think? Im getting used to it slowly, but it feels rather dark after being so bright for so long!

It should take a week or so to get my professional photographs from the day, and then a bit longer to get the prints, I will post up a couple of the professional ones for good measure! ^_^
Was a pretty good day, was really nice seeing everyone again and having a good old knees up!

Celebrate The Summer - Ice Cream!

Celebrate The Summer

Before I went on holiday I was doing the series of Celebrate The Summer posts. One was about ice cream! During my holiday I went to a few Cold Stone Creameries! Unfortunately didn't get to go to the San Francisco Creamery as that was really far away from where we were staying.

Cold Stone Creamery Disneyland CA
The one on the left is mine and its 'Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip'! The one on the right is Simon's and it was 'Peanut Butter Cup Perfection'!

Cold Stone Creamery South Lake Tahoe
Had the 'Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip' again! But this time in a dipped waffle cone!

Cold Stone Creamery LA
Last day in America and I tried the 'Cookie Doughn't You Want Some' flavour! Picture of the ice cream ON a cold stone!!!

Cold Stone Creamery LA
I decided to go for a dipped sprinkle cone!! :D

Cold Stone Creamery LA
My ice cream! Not as good as the mint chocolate chip number im afraid!

Hope you enjoyed my ice cream journey! When I go back I will definitely get some more Cold Stone Creamery ice cream! Amazing! (These were all the SMALLEST size as well!)

Instagram Photoshop Actions

I recently got sent a link by my lovely friend "Yeti" (go check out her poetry!), about Instagram photograph effects, and how, after looking, the author could not find any Photoshop actions, so made some himself!
Well I adore Photoshop actions, so thought I would download them and give them a spin on a photo of myself!

Here's the link to the tumblr post: here, and you can download the actions from there as well!
