BBW Couture Josie Vintage Dress and Maria Nila Colour Refresh

BBW Couture dresses have become some of my favourite dresses to wear for day to day life, especially in Summer. Simply because, they’re super thin which means if it’s one of those days where you don’t know if you’re going to bake to death or be a little chilly, you can easily add or take away leggings and a cardigan. The new prints are absolutely out there, and more out there than I would usually go near, but after trying them on, they just work so well and are incredibly easy to wear. The bold pattern in this BBW Couture Josie Vintage Dress really caught my eye, and lately I’m really partial to purple. I’m yet to wear this one out as the previous Animal Rose dress always jumps out at me, but I would definitely wear a black, sheer cardigan if they weather permitted.

As always in BBW Couture, I wear a size 20 and literally squeeze my boobs into the dress as it fits perfectly, after it has managed the struggle over my boobs. Once I’m in, the neckline is a tad gaping, even with a plunge bra, so I do normally stitch mine a little higher, just to retain my modesty. It fits perfectly at my waist and I would usually wear a plain belt with them for extra definition, at 5’3 they’re the absolute perfect length for me. I will stress that unless you’re an expert in popping one big boob in at a time, do not use the zipper as it’s too flimsy and instead, just size up. You’ll definitely have to add a belt as the waist is spot on sizing.

The main part of this post is to actually show off my hair and how incredible the colour looks thanks to the Maria Nila Bright Red Colour Refresh. I’ve tried a similar mask to this before but I found it too pricey and not enough quantity for the results. This time, I was rather impressed. The nourishing mask works by adding and enhancing the coloured pigments in your hair. To use them, shampoo your hair and towel dry it and then apply thoroughly and leave for up to 10 minutes. As you’ve probably read before, I don’t like playing by the rules and find that adding water can sometimes cause a barrier, so I did try this on wet and dry hair and the results were both amazing. On wet hair I found it super messy in the bath to do, even though my bathroom is already pink.

On dry hair, it was much easier to use and the colour was seriously intense. On the same level as my usual hair dye, and it lasted quite a long time as well, I’d say nearly 2 weeks without it needing to be dyed again, so I’m really impressed. It should stay in the hair for 4-10 washes, so this seems pretty normal. At 29 euros for 300ml (£20) it seems pricey, but for the results, it’s definitely worth it. My hair was a beautiful colour and in fantastic condition. I am really keen to try more from their range as it’s not easy to find people who can master red hair at all, I’ve only really found one in the past.
