Day In The Sun | Lifestyle

Hello there!

Today was spent in the sun. It was simply lovely to catch a few rays and enjoy the serenity around me. I also enjoyed a very delicious slushy and a couple of cupcakes! 

So this was basically my afternoon in some pictures!

L'Oreal EverSleek Review | Beauty

Hey guys how are you doing? Hopefully your day is going great, and if not I am sure it will get better :) 
Today I will be reviewing the L'Oreal EverSleek Shampoo and Conditioner. 

I personally love this shampoo and conditioner. I have naturally frizzy hair and I am always searching for new products that claim to reduce frizziness. And I can safely say that this definitely does the job. In terms of smell I quite like it. However, I would smell it at the shops first to see if it is something you like. I first apply the shampoo in my hair whilst wet (I am usually in the shower for this part!) and then I just put a shower cap over the top for a couple of minutes to just let it do it's thanng, and then I wash it out. I then again do the same thing with conditioner. When I get out of the shower I will then apply macadamia oil (I reviewed it here) and some sort of leave in conditioner. This product is quite inexpensive, I bought both bottles for about eleven dollars each at my local drugstore/chemist. After using this product my hair is noticeably less frizzy, hooray! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to reduce frizz and have their hair feeling and smelling great.  

Have you used this product and if so what do you think about it??

Films or Movies | Talk

Hello to all of my fellow blog reading people,

I myself am a little bit of a Harry Potter fanatic (who am I kidding I LOVE Harry Potter). I just love to be engrossed in a book. To be engrossed so much that you forget about the outside world. And I am no way ashamed of the fact that I love Harry Potter, and that my life long dream is to meet J.K Rowling (or become a cat). However it does leave me with the label as a little bit of a nerd/geek. I however am totally fine with this.  

I extremely love reading books. But it's the argument of "which one is better books or movies" that kind of bugs me a little. To be perfectly honest I love both. When watching a film their are great camera angles and sets. The acting is brilliant (sometimes), and in order for the production to be of exceptional quality many people are involved. Now don't get me wrong films are great but there is just something about books that I love. 

So what are the pros about books you may ask. Well, the exhilaration of turning a page and seeing what will happen next and the touch of paper between your fingers is just heavenly. When reading a book you are allowed to let your imagination run wild which is just magnificent. As you grow older the chance to use your imagination lessens and it's quite depressing really. When reading books the moment that I love (and also hate) is turning the last page of the book. This is the finale, you have been reading all for this moment and now it is finished. You are glad that it's over, but you are also sad you never wanted it to end! 

This is when "the book hangover" comes into play. This is when you have just finished reading an exceptional book and you just can't stop thinking about it. You mope around the house thinking about "what if she didn't die" or "I wish it ended differently" but you just have to accept the fact that it is over. The heart-racing moments are finished and you slowly move on to a new book hoping it will be as great as the last one. 

So maybe next time someone says "how can you like books over films" just tell them all of these points and they might be converted. Then again everyone is different for instance some people like Lord of the Rings whilst others (like me) would much rather Harry Potter.

Macadamia Oil Review | Beauty

Hi there!

So first of all how are you all? Today I would like y'all (I just had to use that word) about a hair product that has changed the way my hair looks, feels, and smells. It is the much raved about Macadamia Oil.  

The reason why my macadamia oil is in a jar is because I dropped the original bottle and had to frantically put all of it in a sterilized jar (it was actually quite terrifying). Macadamia Oil actually looks like this (this is the bottle I originally purchased): 

Sorry for the blurred image but it was the only one I could find!

This is quite expensive I bought it for about 50-60 dollars at my local hairdressers. However in my opinion it is quite worth the money. My hair is naturally curly and with that also comes frizziness and harshness. It is quite hard to find a product that will tame my crazy curls and define my curls instead of having a layer of frizz. And I am happy to announce that this is in fact the product. It has lasted me quite a long time as I bought it about 5 months ago and still have quite a lot. 

This product really does tame your hair and after applying it I found my hair noticeably softer. I will usually apply this after showering and I also pair this with a leave in conditioner. This product smells absolutely amazing. It is spicy with hints of sweetness, it is also very musky. When applied to the hair the smell is not at all strong but very subtle.

This product is a great investment especially if you want to tame your hair :)
