Hair:It’s not often that I found a haircare product that really gets me excited as I find most products to be pretty much the same whether they’re a detangler, a heat protectant or a leave in conditioner. I have been applying semi permanent medium brown hair dye every 6 weeks or so to keep any brassiness from my blonde at bay, and in turn I have been using the Scott Cornwall ‘Pre Colour – Protein Spray’. You spray this through dry, porous hair before colouring to help pack the proteins back into damaged hair, it also helps to strengthen and prevent breakage as well as creating a more even colouring by filling in the gaps in dry and extra porous areas. Not only does this smell super lush, think salon quality product but it is pretty wonderful at keeping my dry, unruly hair protected and evenly coloured.
I have also been trying out a new heat protectant this month in the form of the Got2B ‘Guardian Angel’ 220 Heat Protectant. I can never gauge if this stuff actually works but it smells lovely and keeps my hair from giving off that sexy burnt hair smell whenever I use the curling wand. Anything has to be better than nothing right?
Lips: Another surprise this month has been my love of nude lips, yeah really! I have been mixing ‘Kinda Sexy’ and ‘Velvet Teddy’ both nudey/brown shades that look lovely when paired together, perfect for daytime and pairing with a subtle, brown smokey eye.
Lifestyle: November is my favourite month as a lot of exciting things start happening, everything from an awesome Bonfire night celebration toasting marshmallows on the fire-pit, watching pretty fireworks and tucking into traditional pie and peas to watching the Chicago stage show as this month I turned 23 and had a super exciting birthday week filled with lots and lots of love from friends and family as well as a few surprises as there is now a new man, or should I say kitten in my life by the name of Reggie. He’s 4 months old and an incredibly confident, bold and playful black cat, meeting him was an epic surprise this month and he is just the softest, most loving little creature who loves a cuddle.
In November I also saw my bae Liam Fray this month on The Courteeners ‘Mapping the rendezvouz’ tour – unfortunately there was a problem with my allocated seat so we were moved to an entire section / balcony just for us slap bang, right in front of the stage. EPIC.
Playlist for November on Spotify: You may have noticed the playlist has found a home in the sidebar and there you will find everything from 90s r’n’b slow jams to The Style Council, to Madonna, ofcourse ‘Celebration’ is on there too for obvious reasons.
