Time for a little TLC

The boy is working away in London for a couple of weeks so I'm taking full advantage of having the flat to myself for the first time ever and spending ludicrous amount of time in the bath, dancing around in pyjamas and eating my body weight in olives.

One of my self indulgent evenings consisted of trying all of the products in the John Freida Full Repair range, which had been tested by my friend Krish on the M1 while we were driving back from Nottingham after a rather eventful weekend, so we have proof that it also works on Motorways!

I tested out the John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Masque, Sheer Mist, Styling Spray and Root Lift Foam, it's a hell of a lot of work to use all of them but it was really worth it. My hair was super shiny, really soft and smelled a-mazing.

I've added the Sheer Mist and the Root Lift Foam to my daily routine now and can definitely see and feel a difference, I feel like walking around the office whipping my hair back and forth, but I probably shouldn't.

The website also has some top tips on for keeping your hair in the best condition possible...

I'm watching The Only Way Is Essex for the first time ever, I am confused. That is all.

Fashion156 LFW Issue

Every season online magazine Fashion156 release a London Fashion Week preview issue, I usually pounce on it as soon as it's live but this year (due to multiple family birthdays and large amounts of work) I've fallen behind on LFW everything... Though I am loving the return of Vogue's Video wall that sends you an email with all of the runway images, amazing!

But I thought Fashion156 was the best place to start properly, especially as they feature up and coming designers rather than your staple Mark Fast and Vivienne Westwoods.

I adore Helen Bullock, always have an always will, he designs are always creative, imaginative and beautifully colourful.

Corrie Nielson uses gorgeously subtle and clean colours to create classic silhouettes, and shot alongside the pastel plastic by Fashion156, it's just a little bit perfect.

Claudia Ligari's leather touches and perfect LBDs are a match made in heaven, I want them in my life as soon as possible. You can learn to touch up these photos and make them publication ready at this graphic design college.

What have been your favourite collections this season? I'm going to spend the rest of the evening/week trawling through Fashion156 Collections, who's with me?

Little Boots

Pretty much every day my boyfriend complains about the sheer amount of shoes that I have in my wardrobe (when I say wardrobe, I mean one of my wardrobes...) but how can you possibly have too many shoes really?

I do have a few, rather similar pairs of shoes but I'm on the look out for a perfect pair, so naturally I have to make my way through a range of shoes trying to find them! I'm currently on the search for the perfect pair of ankle boots but am currently stuck in my wedged desert boot rut. So I've picked out a few styles that will bridge the gap between the two...

The beige boots on the left are a little similar to ones I already have but without the wedge so stepping out of my comfort zone a little bit! The middle boots are pretty much my classic day to day shoes, in a lovely cocoa colour. The boots on the right are the furthest away from my comfort zone, and kind of the most grown up! I'm still looking for the perfect pair but I think I'm getting closer... These women's ankle boots on Macy's are proving good for inspiration!

But do you have any suggestions or tips?

I wish I was Zooey...

Zooey can do no wrong in my eyes. Well, I'm not a massive fan of New Girl but I will happily sit through it just so I can look at her hair, I have serious hair envy.
Plus, these photos were taken by Ellen Von Unwerth, one of my favourite photographers, for Lula, one of my favourite magazines. Probably the most perfect set of photos a girl could ask for right?

Hand up who wants to be Zooey...

p.s. I'm posting a rather lovely giveaway on Valentine's Day, don't forget to have a gander!
