The Body Shop

Greetings All,

Today I wanted to show you a wee Body Shop haul I picked up on Saturday. I also have to add that my phone contract is with o2, I downloaded their priority app and I’m so glad I did. Offers galore!!
Which brings me back to when I was in Belfast on Saturday and went into The Body Shop to take advantage of their 30% discount within the priority app.

I am and will always be a fan of their White Musk perfume (£17). I adore it and go through it rightly so that was the 1st thing I picked up. Next, I spied the Coconut Oil (£7) for my hair, it smells lovely so I’m looking forward to trying it, I’ll have a wee review up on that soon, so keep your eyes peeled.  Lastly I got the Vitamin E Essentials Kit (£11) for a present which has a mini toner, cleanser, moisturiser and a night cream all in a dainty little bag making it perfect for travel.
I was checking the Priority app again today and see The Body Shop is back on it, except now with a whopping 40% discount!! Making now the perfect time to buy any Christmas presents and take advantage of nearly half price.

Thanks for stopping by! ♡

Help Big Up Flat Hair!

HellO All!

I *LoVe* going to the hairdressers, getting my hair washed is the best bit, I could fall off to sleep everytime, it’s so relaxing!  But after it’s been cut, dried & straightened what then?

I’m left with the flatest hair in the world, that’s what!
I don’t like washing my hair too much,  I don’t need to.  Wash & a deep condition twice a week is my routine.

But I find after I’ve been to the hairdressers I’ve to wash it asap so I can put a bit of volume back into it.  Which negates getting it washed there in the first place. 
So what do I do?

Salt Spray is what!
I bought this one aaaaaages ago.  I think it was 2 for £5 in Superdrug.  It lasts a while as you really don’t need a lot.

AnyhoO, this is my saving grace after I’ve been to the hairdressers.  I get to keep the sleek blowdry look that I’ll never be able to do myself for another few days except with some volume.

Are you a fan of salt sprays?  Or if you’ve any tips on how to big up flat hair comment below & share your knowledge.

As always, thats a million for reading.

~ LoVe & huGs to you all ~

& have a great weekend!

Blonde To Brunette

Hey there,

I’m not sure what happened to this post yesterday. I wrote & saved it but alas it disappeared into cyberspace. But no biggy.

Remember how I’d been threatening to dye my hair back to brunette? Well I finally got round to doing it. I really loved the blonde I’d gotten to but it was just too damaging to maintain it, my hair was breaking off everytime I brushed it. Then the Crazy Colour farce of wanting lavender hair but ending up with a few purple stripes was the last straw.

Ju69lI chose Clairol in Medium Brown because there were no red tones in it & it was quite close to my natural hair colour. It cost £4 & it recommended leaving in for 25 minutes but I washed it out after about 17 as I didn’t want to go too dark considering how blonde my hair was.

I’m quite happy with how natural it came out & relieved at not having to touch it up every 5/6 weeks. All I need now is to get a trim & a hundred or so deep conditions & hopefully my wee mop will fiiiiinally be on the road to recovery.

Have you had any hair disasters? Comment below & let me know I’m not alone.

Thanks so much for stopping by my lil blog.
