So yeah, I'm a brunette now. A few of you were asking what I think of it, well I bloody love it. It's taking a bit of time to get used to (definitely keep walking past myself in mirrors!) and while editing these photos I was a bit like, is that me? But I'm really, really happy with it. I haven't managed to capture the tones too well in these photos (they were sucking outside so I came in) but there's a few different shades in it, it has a gorgeous red tinge to it and it's super shiny! If it looks a bit grey, it's because I'm not used to using dry shampoo on dark hair and it was a bit of a nightmare to get out. I also had to photoshop the huge dry-shampoo mark off my jumper in these pictures!

Anyway, these photos are for my first post as the blogger of the month for the Republic Wear It Your Way blog! I'm going to be blogging for them for a month! This is such a big thing for me, Republic is such a great brand and I am chuffed to bits to be blogging for them. Go read the full post on this outfit, over at the Wear it Your Way Blog!

  4. I love the new do!! Your hair looks gorgeous and so healthy. Dry shampoo and dark hair can be a pain but it just takes more working in.

  7. I loooove your hair, can't wait to see how you'll change your make up routine now! haircolor changes EVERYTHING! you should make your eyebrows darker, I LOVE a dramatic brow :D and maybe a bright lippie and less eyeliner? You can look SO different now, like being a new version of yourself, so cool! I just got my hair al red and shiz and I'm trying new things as wel, and loving it! Also, I'd reallllllly love to see you face-on in your pictures, as cute as your head tilt is. DO IT FOR ME! :D

  14. I love you as a brunette! I remember when I went from waist-length blonde hair straight to a black pixie cut - every morning for about a week I woke up freaking out that someone had cut my hair off in the night!

  18. Ooh! I like! Are you still giving yourself a shock when you see your reflection? My best friend dyed her hair blue once, and nearly crashed her car when her fringe flopped into her eye and she had a slight freak-out trying to work out what this strange blue thing in her face was. 
    The brown suits you though.
