Hair Routine...

Hi, so I haven't posted in a while I'm sorry, soo much Uni work to do! (I'm supposed to be doing it now but shh don't tell anyone)
So the other night I went and got ready for a night out, it was only when I was sat with rollers in when I noticed the amount of products I use and how I actually have a routine for my hair even if I'm not going out, so I thought I would share with you my hair routine.
Ive never looked after my hair amazingly well and I always have split ends, I think that's mostly from having long hair. But lately Ive been trying really hard and hopefully its getting nice and healthy slowly but surely, and I'm happily noticing some difference.
If there is any products I mention that you would like me to review properly, just leave a comment and I am more then happy to do that!
Lets get started...

Review: Kate Moss Purple Lipstick

Hi, again. So I recently bought myself my first Kate Moss Lipstick in the Rimmel London brand. I love wearing lipstick and prefer wearing it over lip gloss sometimes. I decided to be daring and get a purple shade. This shade is number 04. The purple is a little darker then the picture shown above.
I was a bit skeptical about going for a purple shade but I really wanted to try it out.
It was harder then I thought finding a purple lipstick, however I'm really happy I went with the Kate Moss brand.

Whats Your Name?

Hi, So if anyone out there does read my blog you may notice I have changed my Blog title.
When I first started out this blog at the beginning of the year, something I have been wanting to do for years but only just found the courage to do it, I really wanted to include my middle name Rose into the title.
I kept going over and over the quote from Romeo and Juliet "What's in a name? that which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet;" Im an actor and loves Shakepeare dont sue me!!
I wasnt really getting anywhere with this and anything I came up with I never liked and didnt seem right.
I finally came up with the original name I had for my blog.
A Midnight Model
I thought this name would be good as it would be me showing you my outfits from a night out and I could post at midnight a lot. This became hard to do, I never posted at midnight because I was to tired or showed my outfits that I wore on nights out. (Mainly because I dont have a decent camera right now.)
Anyway I did like this name a lot but it was never really me.
Then today I finally found it. I dont know where it came from, it litrally hit me like lightning.
The Shadow of a Rose
It feels so perfect for me as my middle name is Rose and this blog is only showing bits and peices of my life, so it really showing a Shadow of a Rose.
I have the 'The' in the name as to me it sounded better with it, but if people like it without it let me know because if most people prefer it without the 'The' then I will most likely take it out.

So what do you think? I feel like I've worked hard on my blog and I finally made it to what I pictured in my mind years ago. Its soo surreal to have it now. It would be nice if I had actual followers though.
I only have one follower at the moment and that is one of my best friends so I thought that this would be the best time to change.
Do you like the name? How long did it take for you to come up with your blog name?
Let me know
Louisa xx

Urban Outfitters Wishlist: Dresses

1                                                                      2                                                   

3                                                                   4                                                    

This is my first wishlist I have made so I thought I would start with something simple.
I love wearing dresses so I thought I would wish for the dresses I want. 
I also don't have a Urban Outfitters in either my home town or where I go to Uni so if I want something from there I have to go through the website which can be annoying sometimes. I am also a poor uni student so it is impossible to afford most things which sucks!

Review: Big by Lush

Hi, I haven't blogged in while, been super busy with Uni, but good news I am on half term and home for the week so I should hopefully have lots of new posts coming up.
This is my review of Big from Lush. I got this as a gift from my friend on my birthday, she works in Lush so she knows exactly what I need and would like.
Big is a shampoo, I use this usually only for the roots of my hair, then put my normal shampoo and conditioner on afterwards as I don't think it could be used as just a shampoo.  
Big is a Sea Salt shampoo. As I would only use this on my roots I became cautious as it didn't sound nice to rub into my scalp.
