E-Salon Glass Act Shine Glaze

Hair glaze… who ever heard of a hair glaze?

My current hair situation is medium brown roots and a blonde balayage and as everyone knows  that (a) going from brunette to blonde is tricky and (b) maintaining it can be a bitch. When I heard about a hair glaze treatment I thought I just had to try it.

Embrace the Pale

Holidays are approaching and with them comes the anxiety of getting my legs out and boobs out (bikinis people, minds out of the gutter please)! I’m going on two holidays over the next few months and it got me thinking about how paranoid and self conscious I used to feel (and sometimes still do) about my skin.  Being very pale in the summer comes with its difficulties… number one – burning (OUCH)…. number two – the comments:

“Why are you so white? What’s wrong with you?”

“Have you never heard of fake tan?”

“Why don’t you go out in the sun and stop being so pale?”

The Clarins Urban Oasis

This evening, I stumbled across something very exciting after work. Usually in Birmingham city centre there are usually pop up stands selling or giving away various things that usually have very little interest for me… paintball for example (just no). To my surprise, I find Clarins have a pop up spa. WHAAAAT?!!!!!! It’s true!

Must Have Products From 2015

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had fun over the festive period. I had a great time with family and managed to fly to the US to see the boyfriend which was a bonus. I hope this year brings you everything you wish for!

2015 was a great year for finding new products and giving some love to some golden oldies (that sounds odd doesn’t it). I tried to keep the list small, so here we go:

Keeping Up with the Red Heads

Keeping Up with the Red Heads

I’ve had my ginger hair for two years and I’ve been contemplating a change for a while, so this past month I took the plunge!

Red hair is notorious for being difficult to maintain! It’s very quick to fade and that makes dyeing a frequent occurrence. The colour I wanted to go for was something more wintry, I wanted more of a red/cherry shade. After spending quite some time in the dye aisle of Superdrug, I picked up Garnier Olia Dark Garnet. I have used the same brand but the 7.4 shade and quite liked it. I felt that my hair was a lot less dry after colouring so I thought I would definitely give this one a whirl.
