Current Hair Care Routine

Hello lovelies, I thought I'd share with you my current hair care routine and I decided to include the four main products I use day in day out, so here they are :)

I shall start with the Korres shampoo. If you hadn't guessed already by a few of the products I am graced with oily hair and  for some reason I find it quite hard to find products that cater to my hair type.

 Recently I came across this shampoo on zuneta.com and decided to take the plunge as it is £8.. it was sooo worth it because I have fallen in love! It doesn't strip my hair or all the oil my hair needs just the excess and it does have a very gentle but devine smell :) I have also realised you can find it at Houseoffraser.com.

Next I'll mention the Charles Worthington balancing aid conditioner which is another product I've recently picked up or should I see gone back too after rebranding. 

I used a year and half ago but felt that it stopped doing stuff for my hair but I like just as much as I used too again :) It detangles some of the knots in my hair and definitely seems to balance the oiliness.

Thirdly is the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Hair Mask which is one of the only hair products that I have stuck with for over a year. I use this product once a week after shampooing my hair and I leave it one for five minutes while I'm showering . It leaves my hair soft and untangled hair :D

However, the one thing that frustrate me about the packaging is that when I'm in the shower I've unscrewed the lid an I have scooped some product out, I then struggle to get the lid back on with either the conditioner slipping out of my hand or me dropping the container ( I can imagine I look like fool!!).

Finally we come to the L'Oreal Mythic Oil, I  used this after every time I've washed my hair, except when I used the Macadamia Deep Repair Mask. I used a small squirt and work the oil through the ends of my hair, making the ends of my hair a lot more nourished then before!

Sorry this blog is quite wordy but I really wanted to get this up for you! Hope you're all well and keep an eye out for my next blog, I might even delve into nail art tutorial :)

Essie Nail Polish Haul And Review

Hello lovelies!

 I thought I would let you in on what I've been going crazy for at the moment, nail varnish... I just can't stop myself from purchasing brands that I haven't tried before and even colours that I probably wont wear, whoops!

This is where my new Essie nail varnish collection comes in :)

Antique Rose

Essie Antique Rose is a warm orange toned colour with tiny specks of gold glitter, that if anything create more of a shimmer than a sparkle. Surprisingly it is quite a sheer polish and you'll need three coats to have an opaque finish. I definitely think this colour will look great on me when I have more of a tan!

Fair Game

Essie Fair Game is blue toned grey that does have a slight shimmer too it. You can easily get away with only applying two coats for this polish, I would say one coat however the polish does move around slightly leaving you with patches on the first coat. When the second coat is applied that is all taken care of, but it is only replaced by the slow drying time even with my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Aruba Blue

Well in all honesty I do not know why to start with Aruba Blue as I just adore this gorgeous colour so much! For a start it's a frosty sapphire blue, but in different lights you can catch a shimmer of turquoise. The colour applies best out all for of these polishes as it spreads across the nail in a thin even coat, that after two coats doesn't make it look like you have seven coats of polish piled on top of each other! I think for the spring/summer this polish is best applied on toe nails, especially if you're at the beach/on holiday, or on your finger nails during a night out.  

Demure Vixen 

Lastly we come to Demure Vixen which I would say is a mostly matte pinky nude, however Essie's website describe it as an iridescent cocoa mauve? I really think is a load crap as when applied to the nail and dried the polish has absolutely no iridescent from what I can see, it does have a slight cocoa hint but I really wouldn't say much not when on the nail anyway. Like the Aruba Blue, I also like how this applies smoothly on to the nail and doesn't go on thickly. I think this polish would great for work or school as I think it looks quite professional while still having tidy, painted nails!

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

After hearing various bloggers talking about this delightful product I knew that I needed to pick it up, when I see 'needed' it might be the case that I could have lived without it and my life wouldn't have ended but hey I hate waiting for nails to dry as I always catch them! (I know in the pictures I have a few catches but when pussy cats want to be fed...). All I can say about this product is that it does the job exactly as its supposed to, applies easily and dries quickly!

So this is the end of todays post my lovelies but do keep an eye out for more up coming posts as I already have a few in the pipeline! :) x

What I Would Wear On Valentines

If I celebrated Valentines Day this would probably be what I would wear, unfortunately I don't. I think it is totally unfair on men and I hate how comercial it all is, I prefer to show the people I love by expressing through-out the whole year not just one day of it. However, when I put this outfit together I had in mind my 2 year anniversary with Joe next week :)

I'm sorry about how the quality of the pictures have all turned out, I really don't get how one week Polyvore makes the set one sizes and the next week it's completely different! Aggghhr, it grates at the OCD side of me to NO end :p

Is there anything you usually do on Valentines Day? Whether you're spending with your partner, your girlfriends, family or even just having a you day, please let me know!
