A Good Hair Day

Well helloo and happy weekend to you!
I am most happy to see this weekend. Weather forecast is sunny but really really cold, i’m hoping to bundle us up in some winter woolies and go walking amongst some of those beautiful leaves before they make a quick exist. I fear winter may be approaching faster than i’d like! But at least with winter comes, my birthday (omg 28! eek!), by step son’s birthday, Christmas and hubbys birthday. So at least through those cold hard months we have a few things to look forward to!

I picked this dress up recently in New Look for about Β£13.00. I am really cautious when adding pieces to my wardrobe these days. This is a colour i don’t own much of at all and i can see great potential for remixing, which makes it extra great value for money. This kind of ensemble is as rock as it gets over here! haha! And, this normally floral loving peter pan collar wearing twirly girly does like to branch out occasionally

I got given a free sample from the lovely people at Aussie Hair Uk of their 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. I’m no stranger to Aussie hair care, its a hair brand i actually really love and use regularly. This conditioner is superb, my hair felt amazing afterwards. I’ve been contemplating a massive chop to the old mop, but this conditioner has convinced me to keep the length. My hair felt and looked in the best condition and i just cant argue with that.

What are your hair secrets, are there any products you would recommend? If you get chance to use the Aussie range do try it, not only does it make your hair super shiny and soft but it also smells 

uh-maze-ing! Seriously, i kept sniffing my hair like a complete wierdo all day,aha!

    The dress matches your blue eyes, and the pop of animal print is so perfect.
    We saw on Sky News that you might have snow, crazy!!!
    Well, we have rain, about time since April, but we are about 18ΒΊc so not too bad.
    Take care and enjoy the weekend.

    The colour of that dress is a real favourite of mine. You look great in tha t outfit and your hair looks very healthy – I wouldn't cut it, you'll regret it!

    Rachel, I found you through Two Thirty-Five designs – you are absolutely gorgeous and I love your hair! New follower. πŸ™‚ I so wish I could go rich brunette/black but I just don't have the complexion for it. I'd trade you the cold for the 80F/25C temps we're having here … I moved from the NW to the desert in the southwest US, and I so, so so miss real fall/winters! Hang in there and hope you have a great weekend.

    Aussie products are surprisingly great! I use their Instant Freeze hairspray and it's the ONLY hairspray I've ever tried that actually holds my thick hair in place! πŸ™‚

    Your hair looks amazing in these photos! I love Aussie, I always stock up when there is a deal on in Superdrug. My hair is such a state with all the dyeing that it needs the extra bit of comfort. Love the rich colours in this outfit, you look gorgeous xo
