My Five Favourite Easy Hairstyles

There’s nothing worse in the summer than making an effort with your hair, only for the weather to play havoc with your locks. My hair used to go a bit Monica in the humidity, but now I find it just goes limp and lifeless, I wonder if that happens as you get older? 🙁

To stop my hair from looking boring and flat this summer, I’ve been using the John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo, Luxurious Volume conditioner and the Luxurious Volume in-shower treatment* to help my hair out.

I’ve also been experimenting a bit more with different looks, rather than just shoving it in a ponytail, so here are my top easy hairstyles 🙂

BTN BikeShare Review*

I used to love cycling when I was younger but, when I moved to the Isle of Wight at 13, I sold my bike because it was too hilly!! Every year since I’ve been saying I want to buy a bike so I can ride along the seafront to take in the summer beautiful views. Then every year I don’t end up buying a bike because I doubt I’d use it often enough to make it worthwhile.

Steinbeck And Shaw | Brighton

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the soft launch of their lastest cocktail bar in Brighton. Located at the bottom of West Street and attached to PRYZM, it honestly feels a million miles away from the usual connotations of “just another West Street bar”. For those of you not from Brighton, think of that one street in your town where you never want to go down at night because it’s full of clubbers, people throwing up and girls dropping chips all over the floor while trying to pull their knickers out of their bums. Just sayin’.

Stop Snacking With Slissie*

I have a “not so secret” secret. I’m a habitual snacker, especially when I’m at work. I start off doing really well and not succumbing to the 11am biscuit. I dutifully drink loads of water and clap myself on the back for doing so well. I eat my somewhat healthy lunch and usually save a clementine for that 3pm slump.

The April #Paperhaul Stationery Box

Firstly, I want to say I’m super sorry that I’m a couple of months late posting this review. All I can say is that it was ridiculously bad planning on my part. That being said, it shouldn’t take away the excitement of the reveal, because who knows, this could be something you’ve not seen before, so I might be introducing you to something entirely new 🙂

The Time I Attempted Watersports

I’m always up for an adventure and trying out something new; which is why a couple of Thursdays ago, on a beautifully sunny evening, I headed down to Hove Lagoon to spend an evening with the guys at Adventure Connections*.  They’re a Brighton-based events management company that organise stag, hen and corporate events and they’d invited some local press and bloggers down for an evening of fun learning how to paddleboard and try out wakeboarding!

My Name Is Girl*

After reading Rosie’s recent post, “Coffee Table Books You Need In Your Life“, I realised that I don’t actually own any coffee table books. Mostly because we’ve only recently bought a coffee table, but it also kind of feels like a proper grown up thing to have in the house, and I wasn’t sure I was ready for that level of commitment to being an adult just yet.

Wright’s Baking* | Carrot Cake Mix Review

Last month I tried out the chocolate fudge cake mix from Wright’s Baking (if you missed it, you can read about it here). This month I thought I’d try out the carrot cake mix they kindly sent me! I did want to make the next cake the weekend after I’d made the fudge cake, but I’m trying to be a little bit good about not eating too much cake at the moment. It’s bloody boring btw!

Soapbombs Haul #1

So remember I said in my Lush haul post that I hadn’t managed to get any of their Christmas bath bombs? And then I said I’d picked some up from Soapbombs and I was going to do a post on them … Well despite it being so close to February, I thought I’d share these absolutely stunning Christmas-themed bath bombs with you.
