My Hairtrade.com Wishlist

So today I'm going to talk to you guys about the things I am lusting over on HairTrade.com. At the moment, I'm currently trying to get my hair back to blonde, but at the moment I've got kind of a mousey brown colour, and I'm waiting on next month when I have some more money to finance more blonde hair dye, but eventually once I've got it the blonde colour I want, I would LOVE some hair extensions - I'm looking at this I&K Remi Cuticle Hair Weft in #24 Light Blonde. The reason why I've opted for a weft is that I've tried clip-ins but I find it difficult to clip them in by myself (such a failure of a girl), I've tried glue-ins but the glue made my hair sticky and I hated it, and I've tried microloops, but every time I brushed my hair one or two strands would come out. Therefore, one method I haven't tried yet is to sew in the hair, so that is my next mission!

Now, whilst I love being blonde, I don't like to have my hair too 'normal', so I am really hoping to try this Electric Blue colour dye from Fudge and put flashes through my hair. Funnily enough, blue is the one hair colour I've never tried! I have used Fudge dyes once before and I thought they worked pretty well and I was impressed.

Finally, the third thing I am lusting after is this I&K Hair Extension Care Pack which includes I&K Moisturising Shampoo, I&K Moisturising Conditioner, I&K Leave In Antistatic Spray and a Hair Extension Loop Brush. I've never tried extension-specific products before, so I'd be interested to know whether they work better than regular products on the hair extensions.

5) I once broke my right arm and the bone moved out of place, so I had to get it pushed back. I was eight years old and the Doctor did it whilst I was wide awake with no pain relief, because the thought of being put to sleep scared me more. Can somebody say hardcore? ;)
6) Speaking of injuries, I might as well have my own room at the A&E with the amount of injuries I get. I'm SO clumsy, it's a curse, haha.
7) I keep pet snails. They're so cute. I also have a hamster, if you're more interested in 'normal' pets. :P

I would just like to say thank you again to Rachel, it's very much appreciated. I'm looking forward to seeing all your posts regarding The Versatile Blogger Award. Please don't forget to link me in the comments if you do the post!

This or That Tag

I spotted this 'This or That' tag on another blog, and I thought it looked like fun, so here it is!

Make Up
Blush or Bronzer?
Lip Gloss or Lipstick?
Lip Gloss.
Eye Liner or Mascara?
Eye Liner, I very rarely use mascara because my eyelashes are already really long and dark.
Foundation or Concealer?
Concealer. I only use foundation when I'm doing 'full' make-up which isn't often but I do use concealer often to cover up blemishes.
Neutral or Colour Eye Shadow?
Pressed or Loose Eye Shadows?
Both, but I use pressed more just because it's generally less messy.
Brushes or Sponges?
Always brushes.

OPI or China Glaze?
I've never used either, but I'd like to try OPI.
Long or Short?
Short, but I would like to grow my nails longer AND STOP BITING THEM.
Acrylic or Natural?
Natural because I usually snap acrylics, I'm clumsy.
Brights or Darks?
Um, probably bright but I like using pastel colours mostly.
Flower or No Flower?
No flower usually, but I probably would have flowers if I had acrylics. I had some real dried flowers pressed into my nails once and they were pretty.

Perfume or Body Splash?
Perfume, I've never heard of Body Splash? We probably call it something else in the UK.
Lotion or Body Butter?
Body Butter.
Body Wash or Soap?
Body Wash, I never use soap as it irritates my skin.
Lush or Other Bath Company?
I do like Lush but I'm probably more likely to choose another company because I don't use Lush much.

Jeans or Sweat Pants?
Both. I actually wear leggings most though.
Long Sleeve or Short?
Dresses or Skirts?
Stripes or Plaid?
Flip Flops or Sandals?
Both but mostly sandals.
Scarves or Hats?
Studs or Dangly Earrings?
Necklaces or Bracelets?
Heels or Flats?
Cowboy or Riding Boots?
I've always wanted some Cowboy Boots!
Jacket or Hoodies?
Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe?
Neither, we don't have those in the UK.
Abercombie or Hollister?
Neither. I think we have these in the UK but I've never shopped there.
Saks 5th or Nordstrom?
I've never heard of either of those. :/

Curly or Straight?
Both. I'm naturally curly but I often straighten my hair.
Bun or Ponytail?
Both but I've had my hair in a bun a lot lately.
Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips?
Bobby Pins although they get everywhere but there is never one when you need it!
Hair Spray or Gel?
I don't use either, I hate the hard feeling it leaves on my hair.
Long or Short?
I'm trying to grow my hair long.
Light or Dark?
Both, and bright too!
Side Sweep Bangs or Full Bangs?
In the UK, we call it a fringe, not bangs. Mine usually grows out quickly and gets swept to the side.
Up or Down?
Both but mostly up.

Rain or Shine?
Rain. The sun often gives me a headache which isn't nice.
Summer or Winter?
Autumn or Spring?
Chocolate or Vanilla?
East Coast or West Coast?
I live in North West England, so West Coast I guess although I'm not really near the coast, haha.
