Luscious Locks for £1.95

I change the shampoo, conditioner and hair treatments I use on a monthly basis, but the Boots Coconut and Almond Oil Hair Mask deserves a special mention. This weekend I subjected my hair to muchos straightening and curling which left my hair extremely dry and feeling rough and bitty on the ends.

While in Boots yesterday I bypassed the other more expensive hair treatments and chose a Boots own brand, something I rarely do

The tub is larger in size than other more expensive leading brands and also up to 6 times cheaper.

I washed my hair as normal and applied a generous amount to my hair, starting about 2 inches from the roots working it through my hair to the ends. I then wrapped my hair in a towel and left it for 10 minutes before washing it off

I was left with visibly smoother, sleeker, shinier hair. The ends felt a lot smoother and my hair felt soft to the touch. An added bonus was the lovely smell.


A must try product for all heat styling addicts.

My Beau

Hi guys, this is my first ever blog post and it's completely none makeup related. There are a few bloggers at the moment who are showing their love and appreciation of THE BOYFRIEND, so I thought I would introduce you to mine :)



His name is Anthony and we met (believe it or not) on MySpace!! Oh yes, the internet is most definately the future!! We have been together for two and a half years and have a lovely home together on the river Tyne.


Anth is my one and only and hopefully by the end of this year my Fiance :)

We have so much fun together and spend most of the time laughung and joking around, making each other laugh. We are truly made for one another and I love him with all my heart :)
