Raspberries, Tobacco and Coal

I think this may just be my new favourite colour combination – hot pink, tobacco brown and black – love love LOVE.

And as it’s nearly Christmas I’ve had my hair coloured even redder… it’s always so bright when it’s first done – I wish it would stay this red! I even did my nails and lips to match πŸ™‚

The weather’s getting extra cold now (surprised it hasn’t snowed yet) so the fur boots have had their first airing this side of summer. I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year – I’m so not a cold weather person but I love the knitwear and the layers and the scarves and the furry accessories and the and the…

My clothes habit is proper satisfied but my aching bones are not =brrr=

    Hi Limette, I have my hair done professionally… I'm sorry I don't know what colour she used this time, I'm quite happy for her to have free reign so I took no notice of what actual colour it was! I just know it was the brightest, most luminous red dye (paste) I'd ever seen in my life!!

    Great color combination. I haven't ever consider the four together.

    Love your fun and furry boots.

    Maybe you can come over to my blog and help me improve my look – I think it could use some color and you are such an expert at colorful clothing. I'd love to know your thoughts.

    Pink and orange is the best – I LOVE the combo. Wear it often myself.
