Some days when i've got one specific task to complete my inspiration is totally dead, i sit staring at the screen and trying to form the ideas into some original shape. On other days however, when I don't plan anything, the ideas just jump out of anywhere, perfectly formed and ready to go, like if I didn't have anything to do with the whole process :) I love this kind of spontanous work, it's more easy to digest, straightforward and inspiring :)
This was the case with LBC Deal Hunting Squad, which worked well as email marketing campaign, but I should really sit and work on it to keep it live - which means to create more deals and upload them online :)
I absolutely adore these Casette Skinnies Jeans, the print is so unbelievably strong and bold, it will fix the whole outfit for you, just add simple black vest, sudded wristbands and layered chain necklaces - perfect for those sweet & rebel days :)
Black Skull and Crossbones Stud Earrings are truly rebellious, perfect for fearless Punk Princess! Express yourself with these Black Stud Earrings, made by alternative British brand Punky Pins!

Currently completing a monster run of dates in the US with Breathe Carolina and The Ready Set, IT BOYS! have recently finished recording debut album ‘Introduction’ (slated for an early June UK release), and are excited about their upcoming UK shows. “It has been something we have talked about since the beginning of It Boys! “ says lead singer Matt Cut. “We recently got picked up by CAA as our overseas booking agency and we’re so thrilled to share a roster with One Direction, The Wanted, Taio Cruz and many more amazing pop artists. We can’t wait to make some new friends in the UK!”

If you think of stretching your ears to get gauges do it gradually and always let the hole heal completely before going for a bigger gauge. also only enlarge by 1 gauge at a time, anything more will hurt real bad and will take forever to heal.
I have both my ears stretched to half an inch, this size can still close up in time also it's not big enough to make ur ear look weird. I always take the plugs out at night, so that my earlobes "jump" back to their natural size. if they get too used to the stretch, after a while u'll have to go to a bigger gauge unless u want to loose ur plugs. Also this lets your ears breathe, which is very important, cuz they do tend to get stinky :|
I recommend u use silicone plugs, they are easy to put in, come in all sorts of colors, and it's less likely ur body doesn't tolerate them, like the metallic ones. i cant even wear titanium ones cuz my ears get all itchy. plastic, bone or wood also works nice. about the snake bites, they do leave a mark, but it's barely noticeable. ppl who dont know u had them will never notice and they do close up in anything from a few days to a few months time, depending on ur body and how long u had them. hope i helped and hope i'm not too late with the info!

It's been extremely hectic around here lately, and I'm glad the initial stress is over :) I've been moving to new house on Thursday, and it's been the most stressful day I've had in years :O First the moving company called me in the morning to say they won't be able to come, so last minute I had to arrange new removal van for all our stuff - absolute nightmare, I thought this day will never end. But after first night when I saw the new house in morning light I just felt big relief that I'm finally here, it's been very rewarding.
Soon afterwards though BT turned up to say that the main telephone cable has been literally cut off from the property! Ha, well I did not expect that, luckily they have managed to arrange for the engineer team to arrive the same day and put the new cable in and connect me to the world. So dear Blogger I can finally confirm all is fine and working and I'm back for good :)
So now back to work, still have got plenty of boxes to unpack, but that can be done on Sunday, I need to focus now :) Thank you to all new Subscribers and welcome to (bit hectic but getting there) Little Black Cherry :D

Noel Fielding is no stranger to Punky Pins Jewellery, and we were absolutely delighted to find out the 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks' presenter is sporting LBC Vampire Fangs Necklace by Punky Pins! Looking good Noel!
for long long time I was complaining that nothing is ever changing in my personal life, I'm feeling bit stuck in my flat (although I love it dearly), my friends are all moving on, even my younger brother got himself little adorable baby daughter - and she is ever so sweet :) So I tried to carry on regardless, be happy for all my friends and family, and hope that all this will happen to me one day too. I had my hopes crashed nearly a year ago, and it took me long time of semi-hibernation to get back to normal. It was surprisingly long healing process.
Luckily this all changed this month, as I'm finally moving to new house (tomorrow actually), which is set in beautiful location and is very convenient. Few other changes are also happening, but can't reveal anything more... I've waited for so long and don't want to spoil it all now :) Love you guys xxx

We've spent whole of this week going through the reviews of Alternative Hair Dye brands available on the market, and there's been few discoveries. We compared only few leading (and at the same time most accessible) hair dye brands. The final score / performance was based on how long the dye lasts on hair, how does it wash out / fade, how well does it work on non bleached hair and also what's the after care required in order to preserve the colour. Here come the results :)
2. In the second place comes Manic Panic. Also 100% vegan friendly with crazy selection of colours and few wicked ranges: Cream Hair Dye, Amplified Dye (both semi-permanent), Gel Dye and Dye Hard (the last two are temporary hair dyes meant to stay only 1 wash). Amplified dye range is more 3D raving crazy shade. Cream Hair dyes are more flat and not that electrifying. Gel Dyes are simply colouring hair gels that wash after 1 wash. Dye Hards additionally come in 3 shades: metallic, matte and neon. We recommend Manic Panic for extreme change, if only for short time, yet for someone looking to try new shade just for fun. Manic Panic lets you play with their dyes and I love that about them. The shade of semi-permanent colour should last from 6 weeks to few months, with Atomic Pink being recommended as lasting the longest. Manic Panic also sell bleaching kits and other accessories. Score: 4/5
3. Third and final place goes to Directions. These semi-permanent hair dyes last about 6 - 8 weeks, it's semi-permanent dye with good selection of colours and accessible prices. The shades can be mixed together to create new unique shades (sweet!!!). Overall good choice, Score: 2/5
Other brands we compared: Crazy Color, Star Gazer, Redken and L'oreal. Redken and L'oreal as being permanent hair dyes did not offer crazy deep vibrant unnatural shades, yet these are one of the best brands for deep black & red shades. Star Gazer was the biggest disappointment in our opinion, guys better up and hopefully will see you in top 3 next year!

I've been reading about Special Effects hair dyes today, and I'm pretty impressed with the quality of these dyes as submitted by the users. These dyes are dominantly temporary hair dyes (as most of the alternative colours giving the vibrant rich shades) yet the colour stays from 6 weeks up to 4 months!
That's quite good, but the best thing about Special Effects is that with every wash the colour doesn't just fade, it kinda gets brighter, revealing vibrant new shade. For example the girl in the photo has used the Special Effects Virgin Rose hair dye, which in the beginning gives quite deep magenta shade, but with every wash the colour gets slightly brighter, and it turns into Neon Pink, so it's still vibrant and rich.
It's also worth noting that with Special Effects shade (as well as Manic Panic, Star Gazer etc. etc.) the final effect depends on the colour base of the hair before dying, if it's pre-coloured, if it's dark or fair, but if you want to get the most vibrant colour it's advisable to bleach it first (with manufacturer's bleaching kit). Also wash the hair with cheap shampoo (which strips the hair clean) and don't use any conditioner prior to dying. Leave the dye to develop according to the instructions on the box, yet with these Veggie dyes (which don't contain ammonia) you can leave it for longer, some users recommended leaving the Special Effects for up to 2 hours for more vibrant shade.
Also good tip: if you have any of the hair dye left over, mix it with the hair conditioner and use it after every wash to preserve the colour for longer!
