Another month gone already! I’ve found quite a few products that I’ve been loving this month and want to share with you all. There’s a mixture of hair care and skin care, plus a lip balm!

On Tuesday, my godmother, mum and I went on a shopping trip to the Bull Ring in Birmingham. We’d been planning the trip for a month or so, but as I’m moving I didn’t have quite as much money as I’d have liked. But that didn’t stop me from getting spendy!

Having such bright hair is a commitment and I do put a lot of effort into picking out the right products and maintaining my hair. I think its worth the effort, but I’m always on the look out for products which can make it a bit easier. One of the main products I use on my hair is temporary dye mixed with conditioner to help keep my colour looking fresh.
This is just a quick post for you today to show you all my typical make up look that I wear everyday. I tend to go for a nude lip and eyeshadow, with bold black eyeliner, making sure to fill in my brows so that they don’t get lost on my face.

Despite having done a fairly significant haul in New Look last month, I have still managed to compile a list of 10 items I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on! I just can’t help but love New Look as they’re such good quality and affordable clothes. Continue reading

What did I say last week about cutting back on spending and trying to use up what I have? And here I am with another haul post! Although I do think I have been really quite restrained with my spending so far this month.

Just over a week ago, I was meeting a friend for lunch and popped into Boots to grab a new dry shampoo as the bottle of Batiste I had at the time was pretty much empty. I don’t like being caught without it so I stocked up on a new can ready for when it died. Recently it seems there has been a huge expansion of dry shampoo lines by all kinds of hair care companies, so I was quite spoilt for choice.
By far the most viewed post on my blog is the Neutral Protein Filler Review. However, it’s more of an initial impressions post, as I wrote the review after one use. I have now been using it when dying my hair for the past six months and felt that I have more to add to the subject.
It’s funny how everything happens at once! After months and months of feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere, I have been offered not one, but TWO graduate jobs in graphic design! The second, which I was offered yesterday, is a permanent position and is doing the kind of design work I enjoy most, so I have happily accepted the job.
This month, I need to cut back on my spending as I’m changing my job, going away for a week and also got a big shopping trip to Birmingham planned. I know, a shopping trip and a spending ban? Not going to go well… However, I decided to go through my surprisingly large collection quickly with you all. Hopefully, documenting and organising it all a bit better will help me to realise what I actually own and curb those spendy urges.

It’s been a few months since I last did a favourites post, as I felt like I was saying the same things over and over. However I’ve had some recent additions to my stash and rediscovered an old favourite which I want to share with you all.

So this month, I slightly impulsively decided to order a new beauty box. One of my favourite bloggers, Rachael from Helpless Whilst Drying posted about this subscription service on her blog last week and I was very intrigued.

This is a more unusual nail varnish choice for me, but there was something about Ciate’s Honey Bee that made me want to try it. I got my bottle in T K Maxx on sale for £3.99 a few weeks back and wasted no time in putting it on my nails. Honey Bee is a pink toned pale brown nude with golden shimmer.

Before we get on to what I bought, I’d like to share a couple of pieces of important news with you all. First of all, I have been offered a new job! I’ve got a temporary contract an hour’s drive from me, where I’ll finally be able to start my career as a graphic designer! I am of course very very pleased and although I don’t start til March thanks to a long notice period and a pre-booked holiday, some of the things I bought were with office/studio dress code in mind. The second thing is that my beloved macbook is heading off to Apple for a couple of days for some repairs! (thankfully just within the extended warranty period I took out when I bought it!) Although I have access to another mac, this may affect my ability to keep up with the blog, so I just thought I’d let you all know, as I have otherwise been very good at keeping up with my posting schedule this month. That’s also the main reason why today’s post is a day late – after a hectic day, I finally finished writing this up at 11pm!
