HAIR CARE | HOW I STYLE MY HAIR

Today I'm talking all things hair. I get asked about my hair quite frequently on Instagram so thought I'd dedicate a whole blogpost to it.

Hair History
I was born with no hair on my head, I was a total egg head, baldy locks, fuzzy peach. When my hair did eventually start to grow it was very blonde but over the years started to darken to my NOW natural hair colour which is a very mousy dirty dark blonde/light brown. I've dyed my hair every colour under the sun (check out this post with some pictures of my hair history). 
Hair Currently
I'd say this is the happiest i've ever been with my hair since finding the most amazing hairdresser (Holly you are my saviour) and over the years I've found some staple products that my hair just absolutely loves.
Cut & Colour
I currently have a creamy blonde balayage through my hair with my natural colour at the root blended  down to the tip (so its not an obvious colour change). It's quite literally the best colour to manage as I don't have to worry about root touch ups and it just looks so natural as its not an extreme colour change. I have long layers cut through my hair and some shorter face framing pieces.
How I Curl My Hair

The only way to explain this was through a video so here you go...

Products 
Shampoo & Conditioner can change quite frequently (depending on whats on offer) but last year I discovered Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil shampoo & conditioner and it is now a firm favourite. It literally smells incredible and I just repurchase whenever its on offer.

Other products I love are:

2018

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Oh hey there 2018!!! I've got great plans for you.

So here we are January 2nd with a fresh new set of resolutions........ or not in my case. I'm not one for making resolutions, I think you're just setting yourself up to fail. So I won't be drinking 2 litres of water every day, giving up chocolate, working out 5 days a week or getting 8 hours of sleep every night but I might try to drink more water, eat in moderation, try and stay active and aim to get more sleep.

For me January is more like a fresh start, a clean slate, a blank canvas. Its up to you to make your 2018 awesome no one can do it for you but being surrounded by the right people definitely
helps.  Here are some of my plans for 2018.
  • Keep exploring more of Cornwall (this is my favourite thing to do)
  • Get outside, breathe in that sweet air 
  • Self Love - Be kind to myself, do what feels good, stretch, live mindfully, believe in myself
  • Go to Disney Florida!!!!!!
  • Family days out
  • Date Nights 
  • Host more parties - dinner parties, murder mystery party, summer garden party

WINTER CAPSULE WARDROBE

As a lot of you requested an update on my winter capsule wardrobe I thought I'd get everything all in one place.  Im well aware I am already 1 month into my winter capsule wardrobe but its better late than never.   I have made a lot of changes to my winter wardrobe including lots of new items and have added more skirts and dresses to the mix to try and steer away from my usual uniform of jeans and a top (although I really don't think you can ever go wrong with that look). I've tried to link everything but obviously some things are old and so I've tried to link something similar.

Top Left - Boden // Top Middle - Joules // Top Right - Topshop
Bottom Left - Topshop // Bottom Middle -  M&S // Bottom Right - Topshop (similar)

Top Left - H&M // Top Middle - Old Topshop (but I like this one) // Top Right - Topshop (similar)
Bottom Left - Topshop // Top Middle - Topshop // Bottom Right - Topshop
Left - Mint Velvet // Middle - Topshop // Right - Miss Selfridge 
Left - Hollister // Middle - Hollister // Right - Newlook (similar)


Left - Topshop // Middle - Topshop // Left - Topshop (similar)
Left - Topshop // Middle - Newlook // Right - All Saints 

Leggings - Topshop // Leather Look Leggings - Asos (different to picture) //Floral Midi Dress - Zara // Embroidered Dress - Zara (sold out - similar)

Left - Hollister (similar) // Middle - Zara (similar) // Right - Topshop (similar)
Top Left - Kickers // Top Right - Dune 
Bottom Left - Clarks // Bottom Right - New Look (similar)
Top Left - Red or Dead // Top Right - Vans Oldskool
Bottom Left - Adidas Gazelle (similar colour) // Bottom Right - Dorothy Perkins (similar)

I'm definitely still learning with this whole capsule wardrobe malarky. I've added more knitwear and long sleeve tops into my winter capsule wardrobe as I found myself reaching for these throughout autumn and barely even wore my short sleeve t-shirts.  I'm looking forward to my spring wardrobe the most.  

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what i'm wearing. I'll continue to post my outfits over on my Instagram page so don't forget to take a look on there.
