>>Top, Bracelet: ASOS

I bought this top about a month ago and have been dying to share it with you guys! 

Been Christmas shopping this morning (I know, it's late) and managed to get pretty much everything I wanted. My and my bank account are tired now though!

I haven't blogged in so so long! I'm trying to be better I swear.
I've got so many posts coming up in the new year.

L'Oreal Elvive Triple Resist part 1

L'Oreal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Treatment.

For a little while, I've felt that I am loosing way more hair daily than I should be. This is probably thanks to years of straightening my locks without heat protect (I know - I'm awful!) and colouring my hair thousands of different shades of red. With that in mind, I was really excited when I saw a BOGOF offer in Superdrug this week on the new L'Oreal Elvive Triple Resist. I bought the hair mask (which I'll review in a later post) and the root spray.
I've tried a root spray before (the John Freida Collection Root Awakening Strength Boosting Leave-In Spray - pic on my dailybooth here). and this spray was something that I just loved! It was the first root spray I'd tried so don't have anything to compare it to, so it was an obvious choice to pick up this spray for free.

The 'triple resist' claims to reinforce and nourish hair while making it feel stronger. It also says that the root spray is for fragile hair with a tendancy to fall, which I deemed a perfect way to describe my hair atm.

This spray really intrigued me because it says you can use it on wet or dry hair up to twice a day. The weird thing about this compared to the John Freida version was that it didn't say to comb it through afterwards. I did this anyway, as I thought the product would start to build up on the roots.

How I prefer to use the root spray is as part of my blowdry. I section my hair and spray the roots, massage the formula into my scalp and then comb the excess product through the hair, add heat protector spray (I use this one) and then blow dry as usual.

Gucci Cruise 2012

I love everything about this campaign. 

I think this is my favourite image (below) Hot pink and Zebra: what's not to love?


I opened up Vogue UK this morning and the picture above was staring at me. It just captured my imagination. A/W is my favourite time of year weather wise, but clothes wise, it's all about spring for me.

Gisele Covers UK Vogue


I'm pretty much obsessed with this image.
I want the trousers so badly, but I don't think anyone but Gisele could pull them off.

What do you think of the cover?

GLOSSY BOX - October

Got my Glossy Box :)

I'm really excited about this box! I've been dying to try dermalogica products for ages. Mostly excited to try the face mask. I'm always looking for new masks and skin treatments so really can't wait to try them out!

The Stila pencil is not a colour I would pick for myself but I love experimenting with colour and looks.

L'Oreal Mythic Oil

For those of you who follow me on twitter, you will probably already know that I signed up for glossybox and got my first box this month.
I've been a fan of the whole idea behind it since I first heard of birchbox (the American version) nearly a year ago so was really excited to learn that there was going to be an English version. Like most people, I waited a few months to see what it was like before signing up myself.

I was going to do an open box post, but I'd seen a lot of them about and wanted to bring a different kind of post to the mix. So, I've decided to talk about my stand-out product from September's box: L'Oreal Mythic Oil.


I am in love with this product, honestly. I only received my glossybox ten days ago and already I've used so much of it.
I use it on wet hair after I've washed it just like I would a serum, but I also use it on dry hair to give my ends a boost and also just before bed as a mask.
The products claims to leave hair 'instantly more supple, tamed and glossy.' I completely agree with this. My hair has been unmanageable for ages, with constant dying, heated tools and teasing so I've had problems with dry/split ends. But after using this product, it was a lot easier to comb. 
Also the scent is gorgeous. It is made from avocado oil and grape seed oil. It smells really fresh.
This is something I would definitely buy. 

I was not paid for this review. I bought the glossybox and honestly believe this product is amazing. 
sorry for the webcam pictures, I'm having problems with my PC and camera atm.

LFW: Antonio Berardi

The bulk of this collection to me seemed to be about relaxed power dressing: boyfriend blazers and loose-fitting trousers. 



 That jacket needs to be in my wardrobe now! I'm in love with this red! <3

 I could honestly look at this dress all day. Definate stand-out piece of the whole week for me!
I have so much love for these dresses!

LFW: ERDEM

I think out of all the collections at LFW this season, I was mostly drawn to Erdem.
I can't think of anyone that does floral like Moralioglu.
 I love the matching gloves with this dress; really channeling the 50s.
 This is my favourite piece. I love the length, the colour, the collar....I could go on.



Another aspect of the collection I just loved was the romantic, floaty and sheer pieces.


 This skirt is also one of my favourite pieces.

NYFW: Threeasfour

Threeasfour's SS12 prints and fabrics are just gorgeous, their message simple: connection. 
Style.com explains: 
They made prints that wove together iconography from Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians

These are my favourite pieces.


The dresses are beautiful, but what really caught my eye was the swimwear. 
I NEED them in my life right this second!
AMAZING!
