So I Went Ombre


So I finally decided after about 2 years of debating to get my hair done Ombre style. I know I’m a bit late on this trend but I finally decided it was time.
Before I went to the Salon I decided to have a look on Pinterest for some hair inspiration, I wanted the ombre effect to be quite natural and subtle, I wanted to keep my ends the blonde shade they were as I was happy with it and also didn't want to dye them anymore, for the top of my head I went about a shade darker than my natural color, reason being a for the blend and more importantly, as I won't have the opportunity to have my hair done for a while as I will be travelling I wanted the color to be close to the root colour to make my regrowth so being a shade darker will allow any lighting the sun my cause as well. 

I found this amazing hair shot and fell in love!! Is is what im aiming for. 

I was very very pleased with the results of my hair, the colour came out just how I want it too and I a lovely cut. 

And this was my end results 

I still have a bit of growing to do until it looks anything like the picture above but im sooooo happy with it now!! 


My Ultimate Favorite Perfumes Of All Time


Ralph Lauren - Cool

I first started wearing this perfume in 2005, I fell in love with it from a sample in a magazine and my boyfriend at time time surprised me with it and I was over the moon. 
First if all I love and packaging and the bottle, I find it very fitting to the scent. This perfume is a floral & fruity scent which I find is very refreshing. This has now been discontinued (like most of my other favorites) which I am absolutely gutted about. I has now become so hard to get hold of. 

Hilary Duff - With Love 

I discovered this perfume in America in 2007. I not one to buy a perfume based on its celebrity endorsement or anything, I just randomly gave it a try and really liked it. The fragrance is described as  flowery combines fruit, milk, mangosteen, flower, musk, amber, exotic spices, and cocobolo wood. And yet this is another discontinued fragrance.  

Lacoste - Inspiration 

I first came across this fragrance in 2009 and loved it. I sound the scent really soft and great for an everyday perfume. Top notes of pink peppercorn, pomegranate, mirabelle plum, and mandarin . With middle notes of muguet, jasmine, peony, and tuberose. Then a base of vanilla, sandalwood, musky accord, and iris. And you guess it, this is also DISCONTINUED (I don't have the greatest of luck). 

CK One Shock- For Her 

Yes one perfume that isn't discontinued and think I would actually cry if they did. I started wearing this in 2011 and so did all of my friends. We all fell in love with samples my friend had and we all had to go out and buy it!! 


What's In My Bag


First of all I would like to apologise for the quality of my pictures. As I am travelling I don't have the luxury for using lights for my photos and have to work with the backgrounds I have. 

I fell in love with this bag when I first ever went into Forever New. You can see from my previous post that I'm totally obsessed with Forever New now and this was my first ever purchase.

Forever New describes this bag as "The Rylie Laptop Bag is the perfect bag to use for your laptop and also to carry all your essential handbag items. Featuring 3 zipped compartments with the middle one suitable for a 15 inch laptop. Featuring sleek soft gold hardware details and branded Forever New plate on the front. Approximate Dimensions: H 28cm, W 44cm, D 13cm."

This bag is perfect if you are always carrying your laptop around with you. The bag is strong and stylish with the option of a shoulder strap. You have lots of space, though I do find myself looking through all 6 compartments looking for items which is never good when your in a rush, so I decided to put a structure in place to make myself easier.

Items in my bag:

Iphone 5 – for my every blogging need
Ear Phone – I cannot go a day without listening to music
Ted Baker Purse – For my cards & cash
Keys – even though I never actually need them
Passport – Normally use this as ID as my UK Driving licence isn't acceptable in most places
Typo Notebook – For writing down and ideas for blog/travelling & life
Work pass – to get into my building
Paracetamol – for any pains I might get
Sunglasses – Well I am in Australia
Laptop – Fits so nicely in my bag. Can't live without my baby
Laura Mercier – Best concealer ever, read my post about it here
Lipstick – Loreal Tender Berry. Loving this colour
#Girlboss Book – Trying to finish this book!
Boohoo Sign – I revived this with my boohoo delivery, just in case I get an opportunity


Nioxin Review - How To Treat Thinning Hair


As you may know from many of my previous blogs, I was quite ill over most of 2013 and beginning of 201, As a result of being ill it caused my hair to fall out. It wasn’t massively noticeable but I had two bald patches with lucky I could cover if my hair was down. It was washing my hair that was the worst. Everything clumps of hair would come out which was quite sickening.

So I decided to give Nioxin another try, I had previously used this before but did not benefit much from it, but now I was in need of its magic .

Nixon states that “NIOXIN uses advanced technologies to deliver thicker, fuller, denser-looking hair. Our commitment to innovation, supported by research, enables us to be able to help enables us to be able to help more than 50% of people worldwide who experience thinning hair.

They offer 6 different systems deepening on your hair type and needs
System 1 - normal to thin-looking, fine, natural hair,
System 2- noticeably thinning, fine, natural hair,
System 3- normal to thin-looking, fine, chemically treated hair
System 4 - noticeably thinning, fine, chemically-treated hair,
System 5 - normal to thin-looking, medium to coarse, natural or chemically-treated hair
System 6 - noticeably thinning, medium to coarse, natural or chemically-treated hair

I went with System 4 as my hair was noticeable thinning and also I have chemically treated, basically this mean if you dyed your hair.

I have been using this for a month now and have seen a major improvement. I have new hair growth where my bald patches used to be and the new hair is growing out nicely, the bald patches barely noticeable anymore.

When washing my hair it no longer falls out like it used to which is a massive sigh of relief. The shampoo & conditioner have a minty scent and also a cooling sensation when you first use it but after a couple of washes you get used to the sensation.

The cons I found with the shampoo & conditions are; one, my hair gets greasy quicker than more and two my hair become quite limp and is harder to work.

I would recommend this shampoo if you’re are suffering for hair loss or thinning, this product definitely works!! But for myself I don’t think it would use this as a standard shampoo/condition as per the cons I listed.

I think that is really refreshing to actually find a product that does exactly what it was on to “tin” so to speak.
