You're In Brookelynn: What I Wore: 21st Birthday!

What I Wore: 21st Birthday!

Outfit Details:
Dress: Forever 21
Shoes: Vans
Camera Bag: JoTotes
Necklace: Forever 21


Well guys, as of Sunday, I'm officially able to legally drink, haha! I'm not a huge drinker so I didn't go crazy or anything, but I definitely had a fun weekend :) The only downside- I was sick as a dog. I'm still battling one of the worst colds I've had in a long time, which happened to appear on Friday. It seems to be letting up a little bit, so maybe I'll have a 'birthday re-do' this weekend, haha.

Also, I touched up my hair! I had to re-dye it, as the last pink faded super fast. I had used Ion Brights pastel color in Rose the first time around, and I wasn't the biggest fan of it. Plus, I don't think I left it on for nearly long enough. This time I used Manic Panic's "cotton candy" diluted with conditioner as per The Dainty Squid's method (I highly suggest reading her hair tutorials if your looking to dye your hair fun colors!) and it turned out so much better. It was actually a little brighter/darker than I originally wanted it, but it faded to the perfect color with a hot shower :)

I also added some purple with some hair chalk, but I'll be talking about that a bit more next week. Watch out for a tutorial & review!

Whelp, that's all I've got for today! How was your weekend?

  10. I was super into dying my hair a few years ago, but never had much luck with Manic Panic - I always felt their colors faded so fast too! I'd highly recommend Punky colors. That's what I mostly ended up using :)
