The Half Updo.

3 April, 2015

I promised a little tutorial on this hairdo a week or two ago, and so I set about typing up a post. I then had requests for a video, and so I got stuck in with filming for that too – since it’s super easy and my everyday style! I start with towel-dried hair, quickly scrunching in a little of the Redken Body Full Instant Bodifier (£13.70) – a brilliant plumping product if you love a big, bold boost to…

19 December, 2014

Okay so this isn’t exactly a groundbreaking tutorial, but a new ‘do is always worthy of a post in my opinion!

My hair style is very ‘effortless’, which doesn’t really go with my too-soft locks, so I add a lot of texturising products to achieve body and volume! I start by spritzing on the Sachajuan Leave In Conditioner (£22), my must have treatment for taming these locks! This stuff really helps my hair…

Wearing Dark Lips.

3 November, 2014

I have to say that I wasn’t a big fan of wearing dark lips until recently – and now I can’t get enough! It’s taken me until the age of 23 (a month shy of 24) to get used to wearing vibrant colours on my lips, so I thought I’d share some tips and tricks for anyone in the same boat. My lips are usually in pretty bad condition, not chapped but not looking too healthy either! I always start…
