Flower Power Phone Case Review


This beautiful phone case was sent to me by the lovely my Decoden Flower. I've never actually had a phone case before as I've never seen one I loved and could live without. Until this... Those of you who follow my Instagram know I'm all about the hippy flower power, this was simply the next stage in my evolution.

This product is surprisingly durable. I'll be honest I did think to myself how are all those pretty little flowers going to stay attached through daily wear and tear. Never the less this product is very well made and I'm not dainty with my phone. It gets dropped, thrown, bashed around in my bag and shoved in my pocket. I was worried it would be trashed before I even got a chance to take some of the photos. Never the less I took some photos a week later and as you can see, still perfectly intact.

My shopping experience with the lovely lady Julia, was truly such a delight. From emailing her the disappointment of not having an i phone, to hand picking the colours of the flowers, right up until the payment. Julia kept in contact with me every step of the way. Always pleased answering any silly questions I had(and I had a lot) . Needless to say when I get my upgrade she'll be getting a direct email from me! (Poor thing :S)

Dewy Perfect




I don't like to keep things too natural if I can help it. However with this face how can you not?? Just look at that smile. All I can say on this look is it was kept simple, sheek and young for what I feel is the perfect blend of a fresh face country girl trying to make it in the big city. Thank Harriet for being my model.

Joico Colour Endure Violet Shampoo


I've wanted to do a review on this product for an age because basically I love it and wouldn't dream for using any other silver shampoo. The reason I haven't was because I was getting all upperty about pictures and examples, after a long time I decided to just blurt it out and tell you guys why I love this product. So here it goes.

The purple pigment of the Joico violet shampoo is far deeper any other other I have ever used, which means with constant use and if left on for an amount of time it can really reduce those brassy yellow tones. I have been recommending this shampoo to my clients (and using it myself when I go blonde) for three years and the only thing to be aware of is the new sulfate free formula. Sulfated free means that it's not going to strip the colour in your hair. For example if you have a toner over your blonde it's not going to wash it out, just add more purple tone. This in turn means it works differently to other shampoos. We have to understand that it won't lather in the same way. Basically if it doesn't lather it's working on the dirt in your hair and if it does, it means your hair is clean.

For best use wash hair in the shampoo twice leaving the second on for five minutes then condition as normal. If you are worried about your hair turning too ashy I would recommend only to use the shampoo every other wash.
