Yes, bargain-ous is a word. January was meant to be ‘no-spend’ month but I let myself off for a few little things and wanted to share some cute and super cheap hair accessories that I’ve spied recently! Pearl clips have been hitting up my Instagram for weeks now and I wanted to hunt one down that was really cheap because I knew I wouldn’t be wearing it year after year as it’s so trend based. Spoiler alert, these are all from eBay so if you fancy a bargain, check out the links at the end of the post.
This post was going to be my May favourites but I didn’t quite get around to sorting my life out so it’s a general summer-themed jumble of some products that I’ve been loving recently and wanted to share! There’s everything from tan to library books so I hope you enjoy!
1. The blonde booster
While I’m still trying to prolong the end of summer as this weird hot October weather is taking over, I need to accept that the seasons are changing! With this change comes loads to look forward to – one of those being new hair trends to try out. I’m definitely going to go a little darker for the winter as I’ve been quite blonde for most of the summer. Check out these 6 sweet trends for AW.
I often get asked where I’d recommend to go for hair, nails, brows etc and as much as I like to try new places and new treatments, I always go back to my favourites and the ladies that I trust. Grab a cuppa and settle down for a little ramble about my favourite beauty locations in and around Nottingham!
Well, I say summer. I’m not quite sure where the sunshine has gone but these products have *technically* been released in the summer so we’re going to have to use our imagination here. To be fair, none of them are specifically summer related but they are NEW! So, let’s get into it.
The sunshine is gorgeous and it leaves us feeling sassy and golden, right? Yes! As great as it can make our skin look, because, let’s face it, everyone looks better with a tan, it can wreak havoc on your gorgeous hair. Especially if it’s coloured. I’ve been colouring my hair for longer than I haven’t now, almost. As the queen of hair dye I always try and look after my colour because that stuff is pricey! Here are 5 ways to look after your locks in the summer.
Pink is everywhere at the moment! From fashion buys to pastel hair, pink is always a spring trend and this year it seems bigger than ever. I headed down to Intu Victoria Centre with the gorgeous Robyn for a catch up, a glass of prosecco and a look at some lovely spring trends (including a lot of pink!)
I love getting my hair cut, I always visit KH Hair for my colour and cuts and I love when there’s a new product for my stylist, Ruth, to try on me. When I popped in last weekend they had just launched the new Wella System Professionals Energy Code system and I couldn’t wait to try it out.

Create A Dark Lip
Dark lips are great for a striking look in the evening – it’s one of my favourite looks. However, with a neutral eye and dewy foundation, you can also pull them off in the day. Uber-popular blogger Zoella has a handy tutorial on YouTube that combines a dark berry lip with gold eyes. Zoe uses a Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick. If that brand is a little out of your price-range, there are 18 more dark lipsticks listed here ranging in price.
The #BootsBeautyBox is here again! This time, it’s a hair styling special and it’s a pretty exciting box.
First of all, I’m a huge Batiste fan, I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos and I always go back to them purely because the price is great for the wicked job their dry shampoo does so I was excited to try the Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray. I’m a fan of texture and volumizing powders so I was interested in this product as occasionally I find I can be a little heavy handed with the powders and things can get messy! I like this spray as it’s easier to control than powders but I don’t think it lasts as long. It definitely adds serious texture though so I might just have to pop a little more in, I’m probably being too cautious!
