Pawsome Box November

A few months ago, I did a review of Perrfect Box, which is a subscription box for cats, but did you also know they do one for dogs?! Pawsome box is a subscription gift box for dogs and I was so, so excited to receive one for my puppy, Ollie! (Sure you will have seen him on my instagram!)

Design a Welly Competition with Joules

With the cold, wet weather now upon us (boo!), it's time to get your wellies out of hiding and start living in them! It is an age old thing that wellies only come in ,farmer green', but there are so many different and amazing colours and designs out there now to choose from, but how about being given the chance to design your own?

Styling for Fall with Spring

Now the colder weather is here, it can be hard to still be fashionable while keeping warm and incorporating layers. I was recently introduced to Spring and decided to use their site, which is full of amazing products and reflects their inspiration from the beautiful boutiques lining NYC's Spring Street, to create a look I would wear for the season.

Topshop Lip Cream

Did you know that John Lewis online sells Topshop makeup? I certainly didn't! As I had a gift voucher it seemed silly to not get one of their lip creams and test it out.

Don't Make These Hair Mistakes!

Hair behaving badly? Not doing what you want? You've probably been making these common hair care mistakes and by following these tips you will soon have the shiny, silky hair you've always wanted!

Mistake 1 - Towel drying your hair - with a towel
Now this is a fast track way to damaged hair as it is most venerable when wet. It can also make your hair frizzy as you are rubbing the stands the wrong way. Swap the towel for an old shirt for a more gentle drying experience and to promote shiny hair. I personally never use a towel on my hair other than to squeeze out excess water.

Mistake 2 - Wearing a ponytail too high
Or any style which involves tying your hair up, as it can weaken the hair, especially if it is always in the same place. If you do want to tie your tresses up, use something made from a soft material or a scrunchie.

Mistake 3 - Not using protection
Of the heat kind. You don't want burnt hair! Using heat appliances regularly without any heat protection can cause fizziness and can cause hair to break off. It can also make it very dry and hard to do anything with.

Mistake 4 - Brushing your hair wrong
When tackling your tangled tresses, always start from the ends and work your way up to the roots. If you start from the roots, you'll be pushing the tangles down your hair, causing your hair to become damaged.

Mistake 5 - Not drying hair before styling
Hair should be 100% dry before you let the straighteners/curling tongs anywhere near it, and this includes any dampness from products. If you don't, you are essentially boiling the product to your hair - not good, especially if it contains alcohol!

Follow these tips and you should soon have the hair of your dreams! (May take a while for these tips to work, so don't give up too early!)

B.tempt'd Lingerie Lace Kiss Set

A girl can never have too much lingerie right?! However, with all that I have previously bought, I have never had anything from B.tempt'd, so I was so excited to receive their 'Lace Kiss'* set!

Skincare Favourites

I have always used the old saying 'less is more' when it comes to skin care and the amount of products I use, mainly to reduce the amount of breakouts along with actually letting my skin breathe. Although it may not seem like a lot, the products I do use do the job perfectly well and my skin feels so healthy for it.
