L I F E S T Y L E | A Touch Of Inspiration.

Okay, so tonight I was having a little flick through Pintrest and this crept up and a smile just smeared across my face. I just thought to myself 'what a lovely little quote'. Recently I've been having a really hard time, and while things are getting better, I just thought this was such a great way of looking at things.

I thought I would share this with you all and just perk up anyone who is having a rough time or is feeling a little down.

Always try and think positive.
Things DO get better.

L I F E S T Y L E | Autumn's Here.

Autumn is finally here and I couldn't be happier about it. It is my absolute favourite season and I wait all year long to sit wrapped in my duvet, with a film on, candles lit and a cup of cocoa in my hand.  The nights are beginning to draw in and it is definitely getting colder (I'm sat in my onesie as I write this).

 Here are a few snippets of my Autumn so far. I have spent the last few nights with my candles lit, filling my room with little scented flickers of light, having long, lovely Christmassy lush bubble baths (yes, the Christmas products are out and I was way to excited about this) and cuddling up with my beautiful little Pascal. 

I look forward to showing you more little snippets of my life in the colder months.

What do you love about Autumn?

B E A U T Y | Current Hair Routine.

I have been having some dreadful hair problems recently. A few weeks ago I dyed my hair darker again for the colder months, and it just seems to have damaged my hair. It has left it feeling so dry and frizzy, well frizzier than usual, which does take some beating haha. 

So today I went on a hunt for some decent shampoo and conditioner and I stumbled across this, the 'Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo and Conditioner' I had heard such great things about it and my friend who I bumped into in Boots said that it was really good to restore your hair. 

Anyway, I came home and have just washed my hair and oh, my, god. It feels amazing! It feels so much better than it has done in so long! So I thought I would come and rave about it to you guys.

I'm not sure if this is normal or not, but I wash my hair with shampoo, rinse it, then wash it again. I then go in with a good amount of conditioner, brush it through with my tangle teaser, leave it for five or so minutes and rinse. 

I'm then a sucker for a good hair oil, I just find them to leave my hair so much silkier and smoother. These are a couple of my absolute favourites. The 'Moroccan Argan Oil' is great and you only have to use such a small amount that this bottle has lasted me for months and months. The Body Shop's 'Wild Argan Oil' is a spray oil that can be used on both the hair and the body. I love it for both, and do use it for both haha. 

However, I do have to say with hair oils, make sure you only use a very very small amount in the length of your hair and none near your roots otherwise it will go all clumpy and feel horrible until you next wash it. I learnt the hard way haha.

Then to finish off my hair when it is dry (I part towel dry it and finish it off with a quick blow dry, it's far too thick to faff about blow drying it all), I like to go in with a texturising product. These are three of my absolute favourites, they do exactly what they say they do and just add a bit of extra volume and texture to the drabbest hairstyles. I highly recommend any of them to you. They are also super affordable. 

All of these products have absolutely saved my hair and now I can honestly say I feel like I have luscious locks and just want to swish it from side to side haha.

Any hair products you guys can recommend? Have you tried any of these? Do you love them as much as I do? haha
