Do you ever get a new hairstyle, then decide to revamp your entire haircare regime??
C'mon, I know I can't be alone in doing this.

Well, if you follow me on Twitter or IG you will have seen that I have been sporting some new bangs and a shorter cut. This just happened to coincide with me dropping and breaking my trusty Parlux hairdryer that had served me well for the past 14 years. Growing up my mum had a Parlux that lasted my entire childhood, so i can hand on heart say that I am a true fan and I didn't hesitate to buy myself another one. 

As I have been needing to colour my hair more frequently, I've bought a shampoo & conditioner specifically for brown hair in an attempt to lock in the colour for longer and prevent having to colour my hair as much as it is becoming a little dry. This combo is apparently great for fighting frizz (anyone with natural curly hair will understand) and it also locks in colour and moisture. 

I recently went through phase of purchasing tubes of the intensive conditioners found in hair dye kits from eBay, although these have served me well, I find them quite heavy and they weigh my hair down which can make it look thinner.

So I'm going to try the Redken smooth lock butter. With a price tag of £21, it is a splurge, and I will blog a review on it in the near future, to see whether it was worth it.

It feels very thick and creamy, plus it smells amazing too. Fingers crossed, this treatment brings my slightly frazzled mane back to life :D

As always, thanks for reading.

Hey lovelies, hope your well.

Holy Moly! It's been a whole month since my last blog... Time flies when your having fun right??! Well, since getting back from Greece I have to say both my weightloss and my fitness had been on standby, until today. I'm just about to head out to a personal Pilates session at Push where I used to be a regular for their Zumba sessions and now I'm determined to get back on track. 

Currently one of my most unhealthiest habits is not drinking enough water. I can go days without drinking more than a litre of fluid, so in order to fix this, I have bought myself a measurable water carrier that allows me to keep track of how much I am drinking and I can also flavour my water so it tastes yummy. I picked this up here -> Water Infuser and think it's fab.

I have to say, some of my yummiest water combos have been cucumber, lemon & lime, or green tea, lime & mint. See below for more great ideas...

Has anyone else got any flavoured water combinations they'd like to share?
