My hair routine

Hey guys!

Today I just want to show you the products I use regularly on my hair. I never used to be, but when I went blonde I became very fussy over what I used in my hair because my hair was so dry and damaged from the bleach. It took me a long time, but eventually I got it to a healthy level and I've kinda stuck with the same products because they obviously seemed to work! :)

I recently went back to brown so these products are good for all colours, the only thing I did differently was use purple shampoo when I was blonde to tone down the brassiness. So heres all the products I use....

So here I have my shampoo and conditioner, hair mask, serum, heat protector, and my comb.

The shampoo and conditioner is by L'Oreal Professionals and its the absolute repair one, they also have one for breakage and one for locking in colour. Seeing as my hair is very dry and is prone to damage I always get tis one, and I've been using it for almost a year now, and I just like to use a wide tooth comb to run it all the way through my hair in the shower. It's absolutely amazing, but it isn't the cheapest. Each bottle is around $25.00.

This is a hair mask from the same brand, but its from the anti-breakage line not the absolute repair. I've only just started using this but I absolutely love it so far. I like to replace my conditioner with this once a week.

Lastly, this is my heat protector and my serum. The heat protector is probably the product  like the least of all the products I use. I definitely think I can find one much better than this but I didn't want to be wasteful. So I just spray this all over my hair before I use any hot tools. The serum is just one from a Korean store I picked up. My hair is naturally really curly so it gets frizzy, this just tames any fly aways.

And this is the end result! Molly is so cute. When I sit at my desk she wines for cuddles haha.

Hope you liked the post, comment below to let me know what you think and let me know any hair products you swear by!

After a very long week of assignments I decided to spoil myself with a little retail therapy to de-stress. Oh boy did I need it :S After two solid days in front of my computer writing an essay I was pretty much a zombi, so my boyfriend took me out to dinner on Friday night for Italian, we hired a DVD to watch, and then we went shopping on Saturday. So I wanted to do a haul post to show you what i got!

I got this baby pink dressing gown at the cotton on body store (I think it's called body love??). It was $29.95 if you bought something else in the store, or $59.95 on its own. It looks like a long dressing gown here but its actually a short one, and its so soft and warm <3

Body Love PJ pants - $19.95
These are so comfy, they're kind of like harem pants so they look more dressy if you want to spend the day in your pj's but are worried about unexpected visitors :P

The Body shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream - $24.95
Sorry this is a bit out of focus, I couldn't get the lens to focus >.< I had ran out of my Garnier moisturizer so I tried to try something new and so far I'm looooving it :)

This was actually a gift from a very generous friend I got a few weeks ago. I was looking at it in the store and she went back and bought it for me! I love it :) Excuse my chipped nail polish btw :S

Gold necklace from Forever New - not sure how much this one was because I actually got it a few weeks ago but it was around $16.00

I got these the same time I got the necklace, from Diva (not sure how much, maybe $15?). I think the animal print is so pretty, and the wooden bangles mixed in give it a tribal feel. I like to buy lots of bangles like this and mix and match them all.

Leopard Scarf from Forever New - $24.95
I've been wanting a leopard print scarf for ages but hadn't found one I'd liked. This one is really cute, and it's cheap, but I did want a nice soft one to invest in. I got this one for now and I still really love it :)

Dusk candles - The bunny one is chocolate scent and it was $5.00, and the other one is chocolate on the bottom and strawberry on the top and was $15.00. I love candles and Dusk is my favorite place to shop for them, I seriously have spent a fortune in that store lol.

I hope you enjoyed my haul and leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Thanks for reading!

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Review

Hi guys!

Sorry it's been so long, things have been crazy hectic lately. Uni has been nuts, I'm taking an extra subject this semester and I've been struggling to keep up. Hopefully seeing as assignment time is coming to an end I can start posting more again. I'm going shopping soon for a heap of winter stuff so keep your eye out for a haul! :)

Today I just wanted to do a quick review on Bobbi Brown's longwear gel eye-liner. 

I wanted to buy this product for so long, I got it in January sometime and it definitely didn't dissapoint! I've definitely been converted haha. It goes on so smooth and for more beginners it's a lot easier to use than liquid liner. It's very easy to make a mistake and hard to fix when you use liquid liner but gel liner can easily be fixed. 

The only thing I didn't like was the brush I got with it, I prefer to just use an angle brush. 

We'll thats all for now, just a quick update. I hope all the college and school students are working hard!! :)
