Herbal Essences Nearly Naked Dry Shampoo Review

Hello everyone,

I’m not the biggest fan of dry shampoos, just because I’d rather wash my hair and actually have it feel fresh. Maybe it’s because I just haven’t found a really good dry shampoo. Until now that is…

I was in Boots the other day and had a look at the dry shampoo section. Just as I was about topick up the Batiste on (I’ve used it before, but wasn’t too impressed) I saw this one. What caught my eye was the design and I know you should’nt judge a book by its cover, but Iwas glad I did in that moment.

First of all, it has NO parabens and NO colourants. In total, it has 15 ingerdients, all of which are quite natural. The Batiste one and Tresemme dry shampoo had waaaay more than that. The ingredient list was literally so small and long, I felt like I need magnifying glasses to read them.

So I bought the Herbal Essences once and tried it out once I got home.

First of all, there’s no white residue. Now I have naturally brown hair and there was no white! And it does come out white. Once you spray it into your hair, it almost feels wet, but also really cold. What I would imagine dry ice to feel like, if you were able to touch that stuff without burning your hands off. It is literally the weirdest andcoolest feeling ever.

But let’s get to the actual doing part. It provides so much volume and just takes the grease away. Like a little fairy that just magically appears and swipes it away.
The only thing  i noticed is, that my hair begins to almost feel like I backcombed it throughout the day. It still looks great and natural but begins to feel a bit strange.

But it’s just so cheap, about €2.40 or so and definitely worth picking up the next time you’re in Boots.

Enjoy and Good Luck xx

That autumn feeling

tumblr_ma08xf06fo1rf7wxzo1_500_large.jpg

Sitting on a park bench, toes tucked in nicely into some black boots, knees warmed by pulled up socks and fingers tightly knit around a hot drink. A single red and orange leaf slowly falls into a puddle nearby, making the water crackle and dance around it. I take out the magazine I just bought and flick trough the pages, finding new trends and ways to wear those summer dresses. I look down at my coat and smile to myself, thinking that I may have worn something trendy for once. I put the magazine back into my handbag, take out my mirror and touch up the burgundy lipstick before I jump up and walk through the arch of red  trees. A nearby stall is selling pumpkin pies, another freshly ground coffee, the other some crepes. The aromas of Autumn fill the air and make me so happy I grin like an idiot to myself.

DIY Perfume Display

 

Hello everybody,

Today I have a really simple DIY for all of your perfumes. This is so cute and you can totally customize to suit your own personal style. So lets get started….

image

What you will need:
A picture frame
Pictures
Scissors
Perfume

Taking your picture frame, I bought mine at IKEA, take out the picture that comes with it and set everything aside.

Taking the pictures that you printed out or may already have had, figure out which one you would like to have on display. I picked one that would go with my perfumes, which have apinkish theme going on.

Cut your picture to fit the frame if it already doesn’t.

It’s easiest if you put some tape to the back, to make sure it is completely secure and won’t budge.

Then, all you have to do is out your chosen picture back into the frame and put it all together.

Last of all, place your frame flat on a surface and then arrange your perfume on top.

OOTD : White Hearts

 

“What I like most about black and white photographs, is that they are more like reading the book than watching the movie.”

It was surprisingly warm today for late September… which meant i didn’t have to add lots of layers while going out for dinner. Just trying to cling on to that teenie tiny bit of summer for as long as I can… but not for long..

Anyway, the colours, or rather colour, because this outfit consist of mainly black, is still Autumn-ish because of the darkness of the look.

The black crop top that I wore is from H&M, which is just a great store for buying your everyday basics.

My cute shorts with white hearts printed all over is from Penneys or Primark, which ever you would like to call it.

My black heels are also from Penneys and my hat, which I have been loving, is from H&M.

I guess there’s sort of a pattern there.. sorry

To add a pop of colour, I wore a matte pink lipstick from the Kate Moss for Rimmel London collection, and topped that off with the Ted Baker lipgloss in Fabulous Foxtrot. I have a mini version, which is perfect for poppin gin the bag for on the go.

I kept the jewelry simply by just wearing a gold necklace that I purchased from AWaer.

DIY Desk Decor: Make up Brushes holder

Hello everyone, Today I’m going to show you a simple way to hold your make up brushes. This DIY is super simple, yet super cute and you can change bits of it to suit your own personal style. So lets get started…..

You will need old necklaces andbracelets, a glass or plastic jar and scissors.

Taking the old necklaces that you don’t wear or like anymore, cut these up until you’re left with individual beads. Place these into the glass jar. You can use whatever colour or size pearls(beads) that you like. This way you can personalize it the way you want.

DIY Notebooks #backtoschool

So I guess summer is officially over with school starting up again. So today I’m just going to show you two really easy but cute ways to make your boring refill pads or copies look cute and personal. So let’s get started…

Taking you blank piece of paper, paint any colour or colours thatyou would like onto it. I used a light pink and blue to create and ombre effect for one. For the other, I placed the waterpaint colours in the corner and painted from there on outwards. Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.00.39

Once that has dried, you can leave it like so, or draw patterns and designs on it. Whatever you like. Make it your own. This way you can be sure that no one else will have the same copy as you. Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.01.45

Then all you will need to do is place it onto your copy with craft glue or Mod Podge. Paint a coat of glue onto the front part to seal in any design that you have created. Remember, this will not be perfect and air bubbles are completely normal…Screen shot 2014-08-28 at 16.01.27

Using old magazines that you don’t mind cutting up, cut rectangular pieces out that you can use as a label. Alternatively, you can use pieces of fabric or even make your own, as I have done with the colourful ones on the left hand side of the picture. 

Using your glue, stick these to your unique and personal copy and simply write your class or name on it. 

 

And voila! Now you have cute and colourful copies that you won’t mind using. 

Enjoy and Good Luck xx
