Here's a couple of new-to-my-life products I wanted to share with you guys, I bought them a few weeks ago and have been using them since so I can fill you in on how they're working :)
Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner
My hair can sometimes be terribly dry on the ends as I'm always using a straightener, sometimes almost daily (eeek). So I wanted a conditioner that would somehow rejuvenate my hair and I feel like this is actually working. My hair seems to be much softer since using it and really easy to comb through after I wash it. I've been able to stop using a detangling spray. It also doesn't weigh down my hair and make it look oily like I've found other conditioners to do.

Vanilla Silk Serum
I got this purely for the scent. I looove the smell of vanilla so combing a bit of this through my hair after it's been towel dried leaves it smelling really nice. You only need the smallest amount of this as too much can be oily on your hair, but in my eyes that's a plus as the product is going to last longer.

Oriental Bloom Bodywash
This is the third bottle of Imperial Leather bodywash I've been through but the first time I've tried this particular one. I got it for the colour and as the scent is "cherry blossom and vanilla". Their bodywashes smell so good and having a lasting fragrance on your skin. They're also really moisturising and lather well with a small amount of product. The bottle itself feels luxe and I find it a great addition to the shower.
Bit of a story with this one - I would always end up staring at it in Priceline and my boyfriend would say "it's just water... you don't need it... walk away". So I would think okay... it's just water. But I still wanted it :) One day I was really mad at him over something and I happened to be in Priceline so I was like what the heck, I'm getting that damn water. And I'm very happy I did!
This is the best cleanser. You put a few drops on a cotton pad and your makeup comes off in about 30 seconds. It leaves this cooling feeling on your face and you don't need to wash it off (although I like to use it as a makeup remover before I hop in the shower to use a deeper cleanser).
I'm in love with this ASOS top at the moment. It's double-layered in a floaty fabric and the elastic sits tightly across your shoulders so it won't budge. These are also my current favourite jeans from French Connection. They're super soft and comfy with a bit of fading and a ripped knee. Top it off with my rose gold sandals, black bucket bag and nude nails.
With the weather warming up one thing that comes to mind are summer music festivals... and then my usual question, what to wear?! Above are a couple of pieces to get inspired by. Kimonos, tanks, amazing prints and sleek accessories.
Another brilliant part of a music festival is sharing the experience with friends. Sure you can text... you can spend ages trying to find where everyone is... you can take photos to upload later... you can use up your calling minutes. But what fun is that? A new app that's popped up recently to make communicating with your friends that much easier and fun is called WeChat.
WeChat has all kinds of things going on - free video calls, a walkie talkie function, a friend finder and group chat. You can create voice recordings while you're listening to your favourite band, share moments instantly on facebook or twitter, catch up with someone face to face, and you can even find new friends nearby to talk to as well.
I always like trying out new apps like this. Living quite far away from my family makes an app like this perfect for me if I want to see their faces and don't have an unlimited phone plan. I thought the video above was a pretty cute example of how it works.
You can find WeChat in the app store on your phone (just search for it) and even better... it's free :)
Just a couple of things I'm dying for at the moment...
Every time I go into Myer I'm straight to the Benefit counter trying everything out. Their packaging is too cute :) I love how the Lorac Pro Palette has a row of mattes and a row of shimmers to go along with them. I'm obsessed with coral nail shades in summer and I'm due for a new foundation so thinking I might give this Estee Lauder one a try!
