Thursday Ten: Florida

I'm back from my trip to the States and I had an amazing time (photos to follow!).  Here are some of the things I love about Florida. 1.  Year round sunshine How could I not post this first.  Being a Londoner this was one of the biggest differences I noticed.  The weather is just nice there all year round but May time is especially hot as it proceeds to summer.  I couldn't get enough! 2.  Shopping Malls, outlets, Walgreens, Ulta; they have everything!  And it's so much cheaper than here in the UK.  The outlets were crazy cheap I wanted to go mad and I can never go into Walgreen without spending at least $50. 3.  Food Americans are known for their love of fast food and I know it's not exactly healthy but when you're on vacation it's okay right?  So obviously I tried as much as I could; pizza, biscuit (different to ours), grits (looks gross but really yummy), pancakes, cookies, ice cream.  They are spoilt for choice and everywhere is open

Thursday Ten: The Struggles We Go Through When Having A Fringe

If you're reading this and you're American you're probably wondering what on earth a fringe is?!  Well, I think you call them bangs which I think sounds really funny but then you probably think fringe is rather funny too. I haven't got a fringe at the moment but I've had my fair share in the past.  I actually really like them but I just find the upkeep a bit much, even with a sister as a hairdresser!  Here are the main struggles I think we can all agree on: 1.  It gets in your eyes.  My hair grows pretty quickly and I found I'd have to have my fringe cut every other week else it would be in my eyes and I'd be doing that flicking my head back thing to move it and eventually pull a muscle in my neck. 2.  When working out, in a hot club or country it sticks to your forehead and looks so unattractive! 3.  If you pin it back to get it out of the way for said workout or club it just looks odd and sticks up everywhere. 4.  You're cons

Hair Care

I've always been really anal when it comes to my hair.  I don't like using too much heat on it and always use a good mask once a week.  Having said that, I've probably put it through the mill too with having lots of different colours over the years and getting bonded extensions done twice.  However, I don't think my hair is in too bad a condition and seems to have grown so much this past year so I wanted to share my current hair care routine, favourite products and tips. Background My natural hair colour is a medium to dark brown.  My hair doesn't get too greasy so I normally wash it every 3 days as I think it's good for your hair's natural oils to be replenished which helps the hair stay healthy.  I actually only get it cut twice a year.  I'm trying to grow it at the moment and I think this has helped although I do notice it getting a bit scraggy at the ends in the last 5-6 months before the cut.  At the moment I have a few caramel highlights p

What's In My Handbag?

I've seen so many people do posts and videos on this that I thought it was about time I did one! Starting off by saying that my current handbag is the Bayswater by Mulberry .  I do love a good quality British handbag and have quite a few that I use on rotation.  Mulberry is probably my most favourite brand as they do such classic and classy handbags that will last forever which is good considering the price tag.. So what's inside... Purse My purse is this beautiful green suede one by Stella McCartney which my mum gifted to me last year.  I have got the Mulberry one to match my bag but I love this green one so much I can't give it up just yet and to be honest I'm not much of a 'matchy' person. Book I always have a book in my bag as I get the train a lot and it passes the time.  I've always been a real book worm since I was little and I'm currently reading Gone Girl .  I'm near the end and it's getting so good I can
