winter nights and wellbeing

So now the clocks have gone back and the nights are definitely drawing in, winter is defo on its way!! a part of me likes the winter...in the sense that i love being all snug in comfy pj's and cosy jumpers and of course a nice hot relaxing bath with lush bath bombs! :). But the other side of  me struggles with winter and dislike it. i get SAD. its dark in the mornings, so getting out of bed  for work  is a massive challenge for me in itself! its dark and cold and just eugh!i struggle with sleeping so i'm constantly tired. I just feel sometimes very distant from the world. SO!.....this year i have decided to turn over a new leaf and not let the winter months ruin my mood! i should invest in a UV lamp...but the simple truth of it, i never used to want to face the fact that i needed one, and that i could deal with it on my own, plus it wouldn't go in my bedroom ha! i was in superdrug over the weekend and saw that they had there own brand of vitamin D on offer, so i have gone down that route! "for everyday wellbeing"  whether they work or not, only time will tell. I've actually been ok so far, but thought id start taking them just in case and train my brain that i will be ok and be more on a positive front this winter!! :) x

Bath and body works autumn collection

Can we just talk about bath and body works products?! i flippin' LOVE them!. They always bring out the best scents especially in autumn/winter. So it would of been rude of me not to try out some of the autumn creamy body wash range ;)


I'll be honest...its not my favourite packaging that they have brought out but putting that aside, they smell AMAZING!


For those who live in the uk (like me) and are not lucky enough to have any stores near to just go in and buy everything! (i wish i could!) we do have a few options...oh yes, you can get your hands on them, hooray!! you can order on the website and get them shipped over but you can pay a hefty customs charge :( and you cannot order everything from there to be shipped to the u.k. I use a uk facebook selling site, with people who work on cabin crew, who can take direct orders! or from lovely people that do make a big orders to be shipped! the people on the facebook site which is called bath and body works fans uk are amazing and i …

why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! …

my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tac…
