Ombre

I am very excited! I just had my hair done... and I had it done Ombre style! I'm still getting used to it and was very weary about trying it out. I am glad I had it done in the end though because after about 16 years of practically not dying my hair at all I was beginning to get a bit bored of it!

So now after jumping onto the Ombre bandwagon I can't wait to curl my hair, tie it up and just experiment with it. Apparently I can dip the ends in food dye to change it and it will wash straight out! Excited!

Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I only just bought this product but my first thought was how good it smells! I just want to eat it all up... but I don't that would taste nice and it probably isn't advised... Anyway I bought the smaller bottle for £2.17 from Boots to just give it a trial and I love it! I curl my hair quite a bit but sometimes I find it looks a bit too formal and tidy for day-to-day life. This spray gives more texture and roughens up curls to make them more relaxed and give an effortless look! I'll definitely be buying the larger bottle next time!

I loveeee Dry Shampoo!

When I'm in a hurry in the morning and don't have time to wash my hair or just if I feel like my hair needs a break from products I use my trusty dry shampoo!
 For me, Batiste's Dry Shampoo is the best one out there! I got mine from Boots at £2.99 each but on a special 3 for 2 offer... BARGAIN! These aren't even the small or medium bottles; these are the largest 200ml bottles! They give so much volume and smell delicious! If you just want to try it out and see if you like it then Body Care do a mini can for just £1!! I would 100% recommend this product, it's a must-have!

L'Oreal Anti-Ageing BB Cream!

BB creams are so popular right now and a few weeks ago I saw this free sample on Facebook so sent away for it. I know I'm young and don't need it... but it was free! Woop!
I got three sachets and to be fair the shade isn't right for my skin as it is too dark (medium). Putting that factor aside I think this cream would be really good for people with aged skin! It's moisturising but not too oily. The coverage is light and not heavy on your face so feels really nice to last you throughout the day without feeling like you're caked in make-up! 

This complete product can be found at Boots/ Superdrug etc.

My Prom!

I fancied doing a style post so thought it would be nice to tell you about my prom outfit!

Firstly I went to Bobbi Brown in Selfridges to get my make-up done. This was so fun and made me feel like such a princess. Next time you're looking to buy some pricey designer make-up I'd suggest you just get your make-up done professionally as you get the money back in products! It cost me £30 to get my make-up done and I used this to buy the Bobbi Brown Eye Liner in black for £17.50 and also a Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Soft Coral and I love them both so much! My make-up seemed to last through my whole Prom night and is really good quality. 
 I'm not into them ridiculously big prom dresses so I decided to go for something a little more simplistic and affordable. I also wanted to pick something that I could easily wear again so I wouldn't just be wearing it once. 

Dress- Asos (£60)
Clutch Bag - Accessorize (£25 - sale)
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell @ Office (£120)

and I did my hair myself :)

Bargain Hairspray <3
The other day I was thinking I needed a new hairspray that was good quality! Luckily, the first one I picked up and tried is absolutely amazing! 

This hairspray is only £1.62 and it is such a big bottle! You get 450ml and you can choose different sizes, for a cheaper price, if you don't need too much. There is also a choice between perfumed and unperfumed scents. I bought the perfumed because it just smells so sweet and refreshing! 
Also if you have Boots Advantage Card this product will give you extra points on it that you can put towards buying other goodies! I would recommend this hairspray because of it's great value for money! It's light on you hair so doesn't drag you down but it still the perfect balance that it locks in your hairstyle for the day!
