AUSSIE AUSSOME SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER


Hey everyone, how are you? Today has been my first day back after half term and I could naaaat be bothered.. I think I need my own personal motivator to keep me going with all my sixth form work!

Anyway, Tesco currently have an offer on Aussie hair products which is three for £10. I thought that was pretty good considering I've heard lots of good things about Aussie products. I'd never tried any before so I thought I would give them a go! They have different products for different hair types but I went for the volumising one's since the length of my hair can make my hair appear very flat and limp.

The verdict... after using them once last night I can honestly say that my hair does have a lot more life to it and looks a bit more full (I would have taken pictures but I washed my hair late last night and I wasn't in the mood to take selfies). One thing that I have noticed, is that even a day after using the products my hair still smells really nice when normally the scent of shampoo's dies down really quickly. I normally wash my hair every other day or so I'm yet to see whether my hair will become even more voluminous when I use it again.

I'd definitely recommend the Aussie products as they're a fairly cheap price and they make your hair feel lovely. Particularly the volumising one's for people with limp, flat hair, as it just gives your hair a little more 'oomph'.

I'm always open to trying new shampoo and conditioner's, so do you guys have any recommendations?

TOPSHOP PURCHASES




















































I recently made a few purchases so I thought I would just do I quick post on them because I think they're so pretty. Both are from Topshop.. I should probably venture into other shops at some point as it seems like I spend pretty much all my money there.

The first one is a fur jumper in a powder-ish blue colour. So many people seem to have this but I understand why since it's so cosy and cute. I am aware of the fact that Primark make a dupe of it, but I'm pretty certain it won't look as nice and high quality. If I remember correctly, it was £36 which is pretty typical for a Topshop jumper.

The second one is a mint green 3/4 sleeve jumper. Well actually it's more of a top than a jumper, but it's just as thick as a jumper so it feels quite heavy and high quality. I'm not sure how to describe the pattern on it, but you can see in the picture it's quite different. Oh and by the way, the pattern isn't just a print on the top, it's actually engraved (that's not the right word but go with it :P) into the top. This one was also £36.

Both pieces go really nicely with a simple pair of black skinny jeans and black ankle boots which is probably my favourite kind of thing to wear on an every day basis at the moment. Oh, and I thought I would just mention that I do apologise for the mirror pictures. It's just that there was no one about to take the pictures of me! For my birthday next month I'm hoping to get a Canon 600D and a tripod for it so I will be able to take blog pictures of outfits with no issues and that are a lot higher quality than my Iphone 4S!

CHOCOLATE ORANGE FACE MASK




Like a lot of teenagers, I suffer from getting lots of spots mainly on the t-zone of my face. One day I WILL have flawless skin! Every so often I like to refresh my face with a face mask just to try and cleanse pores and prevent as many spots/pimples as I can. This time I used a hot chocolate orange one that I got in my stocking this Christmas. Even though it was a present, I'm pretty sure you get these from New Look for 99p...bargain!

It's described as a melted chocolate, hot chocolate, pore cleansing sauna mask with self heating. It also says that it contains Mediterranean clay which cleanses dirt and oils from deep within pores and rich dark chocolate and orange oil which leaves skin soft and refreshed.

From the packet it seems as though there isn't much of the actual product but in actual fact there is more than enough! The consistency of the product is so thick and it literally smells and feels like your putting melted terry's chocolate orange on your face.. yum! It said to leave it on for 15 minutes but I think I left mine on for about 45 just to make the most of it. After rinsing it off my skin definitely felt noticeably softer and more refreshed. Whether it will prevent spots I am yet to find out!

What are your favourite face masks?

MARC JACOBS WATCH


                           


Okay, I think I'm in love, and yep.. with a watch. I decided to treat myself to this beauty few weeks ago and boy am I glad I did! It took me a while to decide on the style I wanted but I opted for the rose gold, Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Skeleton watch (no idea why it's called that). I was originally going to get a Michael Kors one but so many people have being getting them lately and I fancied something a bit different.

The watch is really statement which is what I wanted, but not overly big so it looks silly on my wrist. Because I like to wear quite simple outfits, this will sort of glam up my basic looks and make them look a bit more dressy. Unfortunately it arrived way too big for me, so I'm going to have to take it to the jewellers to have a few links taken out, but that's not really a problem. I purchased mine from Amazon and I actually can't find the link to it any more, but if any of you are interested or like the style, you can buy them here at the Watch Shop.
