Nanokeratin refining shampoo and mask: making my hair manageable




Knotty, damaged and very dry best describes my hair. Long have I wanted soft to the touch hair that my fingers can just glide through with ease. So when these landed through my door, I couldn't wait to try them out and see if they could work their magic.

The normal shampoos I use are either the Catwalk Oatmeal one or a trusted Herbal Essence which might not be the best, but they work well with my hair and its condition. I find that some shampoos can make my hair quite greasy quickly and tend to only wear it down for one day and they its up in the standard pineapple hairstyle we all sport. The shampoo is nice, although after washing it out it sort of felt that it had dried my hair out (if that even makes sense). It didn't lather up much compared to other shampoos and was tough to get the amount from the sachet to cover all of my long locks, but overall was good in terms of application. 

Normally I'm not a huge fan of using masks because, if I'm honest I'm lazy. I want to get in and then out done and dusted. This attitude to hair care in the shower has changed as this mask actually has been working wonders on my hair. I applied it and left it a few minutes whilst I did the other shower stuff and then washed it out. Instantly my hair felt silkier, smoother, more tame and not as knotty. As I expected once dry it was easy to work with and was less knotty and actually felt smooth to the touch. I was able to go a couple of days wearing my hair done until it went greasy. 

I had never heard of this shampoo and hair mask before, but am so happy I've now been introduced as I will be hunting this down. I'm not sure I'll purchase the shampoo, but the hair mask is one of the nicest I've used. 

Do you use hair masks? Or have you tried this brand before?

  1. I really need to get into using hair masks, my hair is such a knotty matted mess when it's wet from too much colouring over the years! Do you use a wide toothed comb to work through your conditioner in the shower? I've found that's made a big difference to mine :)

    1. Thanks for advice on using a wide toothed comb! I've been told that helps but I'm yet to try it out. Honestly I can't explain how much nicer my hair is after using a hair mask too!! xo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
