I LOVE scary movies, and everything about Halloween in general :) I'm off to a shindig tonight, so I'll an OOTD up tomorrow hopefully, I'm not intending to be very scary, but girly (Surprise, Surprise) Until all my makeup wear's off and my eyelashes are half way down my face!

Hair Care Routine, Part 1

The most asked questions from you lovely lot, are about my hair and me eyebrows. So I thought I'd let ya'll know what products I use. Now before I start rambling I am definitely not a "Beauty Guru", but I'll just let you guys know what I use, and what I find works well for me.

Now as I'm sure you've all noticed, I'm a fan of big hair. I love backcombing and don't think I'll ever be a fan of hair with no volume.  First things first, I rarely straighten my hair. After about my 5th GHD broke (2 nearly went on fire, one disappeard, one randomly wouldn't work and an ex stood on another one!) So I gave up on straightening my hair and now have a some
what crappy one from BOOTS, that I forked out a whopping €15 for. It does the job, as my hair doesn't stay straight for long anyway, it just makes my hair a little less cray.

Anyway, enough of my mumbo jumbo...
My favorite Shampoo & Conditioner has to be the "Miracle Moist" from Aussie. It's available in Nationwide in all good Pharmacy's and Supermarket's. It claims to be for "hair that's dry,damaged, and a little unhappy"  I repurchased this on Saturday, as there was a promo on in BOOTS, where you can purchase two Aussie Products for €7. An absolute bargain that I couldn't resist. It makes my hair so soft and silky and not to mention it smells lush. Definitely a great alternative to higher end brands, and I couldn't recommend the Aussie line more.

I went shopping with my lovely blog friend Laura, and she recommend this L'oreal "Extraordinary oil" to me on Saturday. Thank you Laura!, it has officially become my new favourite hair oil. I've only used it three times, but WOW it's certainly made a great first impressions. My hair feels amazing afterwards, it's literally like silk. At over €12 this was a bit of an indulgence for me in terms of hair care, but you get a generous sized bottle, and you only need 2 or 3 pumps every go, so this bottle will definitely last me awhile. You can use it both on wet and dry hair depending on what you want the oil to do. I've also been loving "Bio Silk Oil" That I received in last month's Glossy Box, so when that runs out, I'll be using that as well. My hair has never been in such good condition, and now I've two great hair oils to choose from!

My Hair Care Routine Part 2, will all be about how I get my hair HUUUUGE, watch this space gorgeous girls :)

Turban:River Island,Jumper:Fran and Jane. Lipstick:Sephora

Hey Lovelies,
It was Pay Day on Friday(whoop) and while doing my rounds of the shops on my Lunch Hour, I see this turban. Now I know it's not for everyone, but I've surprisingly  fallen in love. How cool is it? It keeps your head warm, and is a funky alternative to a hat, when the weather isn't exactly bitter yet. I've got a darker purple Lipstick(Kate Moss' collection last year) which I think would really bring out the purple in the turban! I'll be rocking it on my next day off, I think! The jumper you can't actually see, but is lovely and over sized and incredibly comfy. I've already purchased the pink version. I don't know about you, but I love wearing over sized knits in the Winter. It's so easy to throw on with over the knee boots or even thick tights and you're warm and stylish. Fran and Jane's knitwear this season is spot on, and I pretty much want all of it. 

I'm so sleepy so I'm going to hit the hay. I'll be doing an eyebrow tutorial over the next couple of days, as a few people have requested it :) If you want anything else requested, don't hesitate to get in touch. Your wish is my command <3
