Ombré hair

I came across this photo on instagram recently. Love this look so much. I'm a natural blonde though. Not sure how good it would look with brown tips. I think it's called reverse ombré the other way round.

What do you think?

Sparkly bling glitter coasters

It feels like I haven't written a blog for ages! Work has been so manic at the moment and I'm also in the process of selling up and buying a new house.

That leads me nicely on to the topic of today's blog - a little bit of home decor. I found these gorgeous sparkly/glitter coasters in a local shop the other week and I HAD to buy them. They are just so me!

They came in a pack of 4 for £4.99 and I've scattered them around the flat. I've got two on my dressing table, one on a radiator cover and one on the mantel piece.

Do you like...?

My best buy of 2012 - my ring watch!

I fell for this little gem as soon as I saw it on the jewellery stand in Primarni earlier this year. It cost £4; an absolute bargain if you ask me!

My original one, eventually got discoloured and may have got wet/bashed as it stopped working last month. I looked in my local Primark and was distraught to see they didn't have any.

Then recently, I went to see my family (about 20 miles away) and went shopping with my mum. Low and behold they had a stand of the ring watches on sale, yes SALE! So rather than £4, I paid just £2, for a new shiny silver one and thought at that price I may as well get a gold one too.

Love love love it!

Pink Cherry Blossom GHDs

It was my birthday on Saturday and I was a lucky girl and got lots of nice things. My main present from my other half was these pink cherry blossom GHD straighteners.

They are gorgeous!

They are limited edition and £10 from every sale goes to cancer research. They come in a beautiful decorated black heat proof bag with blossom stitched on to it in gold and purple. The plates are pink and there is a pink GHD light to tell you when they are heated (which only takes about 5 seconds).

I have been a GHD fan for about 10 years now, and I'm sure everyone who uses them will agree. They are just so versatile; whether you want straight, curly or wavy - any look is possible with these nifty hair tools!

A 'must have' for any hair fanatic!
