Being both a person with eccentric taste and a haver of blue hair, I tend to get asked a wide array of strange questions, some of which come up over and over and over again, so let’s tackle a few of them right now!
How often do you get your hair dyed?
I get my hair dyed roughly every six weeks. I actually did a blog post all about blue hair and maintenance as my first ever blog post! It’s a little out of date, but it still covers the basics.
Is it high maintenance?
I wouldn’t say it’s high maintenance, but that sort of thing is subjective and I’m happy to put in the effort. I use special shampoo and conditioner and I try to avoid heat styling my hair which helps maintain the colour and I don’t touch up on the colour between salon appointments unless I have a special occasion coming up and my colour is looking a little faded. It fades at different rates depending on how sunny its been and how often I’ve washed my hair between salon appointments.
Does your husband take your Instagram photos?

Short answer: no. Long answer: noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Mr Greatnews has better things to do with his time in the mornings than deal with my outfit of the day photos. He occasionally will take photos of me out and about, but I take the majority of my own Instagram photos. I use a Canon 600D camera on a tripod with a remote timer for my day to day outfit photos.
Do you dress like this every day?

I do dress the way you see me on Instagram every day. I’m lucky enough to work in an office where I can wear basically whatever I want, within reason.
How do you find the time to dress up/do your hair and make-up every day?
I find the time just by making the time. It’s built into my routine. I understand it’s not necessarily a priority for everyone, but I enjoy it.
Where do you get your clothes from?
Uhhhh, a lot of places? I get a lot of my reproduction stuff from Unique Vintage, Vixen by Micheline Pitt and Bleu Foxxx Shop and the majority of true vintage from Etsy or Facebook Buy/Swap/Sell groups.
And that’s all for now! Let me know down in the comments if you have any other questions you’d like me to answer. ❤
Lots of love,
