My Hairdresser Made Me Do It

My hair got really long this year and I couldn't have been more happy.  However, it wasn't in very good condition at all.  I tried everything to fix this.  I stopped dying my hair, used coconut oil as a mask once a week and even stopped wearing it in a pony tail.  Sadly, none of these really worked and so the only thing left to do was to cut it.


My sister is my hairdresser which is good and bad.  Good because I can pretty much have my hair done as much as I want for next to nothing but bad because we sometimes get into arguments as to what is best for my hair.  I only wanted 2 inches off but she told me it was so badly damaged I needed at least 4 off so reluctantly (after a small fight) I gave in.


In truth, I think it looks a lot healthier and I've now promised to have my hair cut every month as I was only doing it twice a year before.  I know.  We also dyed it dark using Superdrug Colour Sensations in 4.0 because the blonde highlights from last year were showing through and it just looked so brassy and added to the damaged look.

So the moral of the story is... always listen to your hairdresser.. and sometimes your sister!

Do you have any hair drama stories?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
