Giving ELEVEN Australia Haircare A Whirl!

Hey beaut's!

It's no secret that I've always struggled with knowing what shampoo and conditioner to buy for my hair, I was always one of these gals that would literally just buy any brand of shampoo that was on offer and this meant I was actually damaging my hair, so my hairdresser Rachael from Serenity Thetford helped me out as always and gave me a few bits from ELEVEN Australia to try! 

If your new to ELEVEN Australia like I was, they're an award winning hair care brand with 35 products to choose from that suit all hair types. Their also cruelty-free and PETA approved and only include high performing natural ingredients within their products such as Australian desert lime, avocado oil, coconut oil and organic cucumber just to name a few! 
I have very dry, brittle hair usually that has some damage from my heated tools and I'd often have some annoying static moments (which is actually common when you use crappy hair care) so my hairdresser suggested the Hydrate My Hair range so I've been using the Hydrate My Hair Moisture Shampoo and the matching Hydrate My Hair Moisture Conditioner and let me tell ya, their a match made in heaven on my dry. damaged locks! This duo leaves my hair feeling so nourished, glossy, healthy and most importantly I never get any static problems anymore, thank goodness! 
Something else I've been using once a week is the ELEVEN Australia 3 Minute Repair Rinse Out Treatment, this is a must try if you have dry, damaged hair and is so quick and easy to use, theres no hanging around for 15-30 minutes like usual treatments, this one you whack on your hair for just 3 minutes then your done! It's the perfect product if your wanting more manageable hair and really want to restore softness and trap in some moisture, it's a little miracle worker really and makes my hair feel INCREDIBLE, I actually noticed instant results after the first use!
On the days I curl my hair I've been reaching for the I Want Body Texture Spray, this spray works amazingly well for adding that beachy feel and texture to your the hair when it's been given a loose wave, it can also add a lot of volume to flat hair if you spray it in at the roots! Also if you struggle with up-do's like I do this spray is amazing at adding grip for that tousled look! 

If your in the Norfolk area you can find all of these ELEVEN Australia products in Serenity Hair Design & Beauty, Rachael (who cuts my barnet) is the managing directer there and is full of hair care knowledge, honestly shes knows everything there is to know about hair so I really recommend booking in with her if your in the local area! Of course you can find the ELEVEN Australia products online too.

Have you tried any ELEVEN Australia hair products beaut's? What are your favourites? I'd love to know.

5 Ways To Update Your Home For Spring!

 Image Source 
Hey beaut's!

Spring is creeping ever closer and I cant tell you how happy I am about that, don't get me wrong I love autumn and the crisp'ness of winter but I just want to see trees full of leaves again, flowers in bloom and slighter warmer temperatures wouldn't go a miss either! With Spring in mind I thought I'd put together a little post of 5 - mostly easy - ways to update your home for the new season ahead!

Introduce Colour and Pattern
One of the easiest ways to update your home through the seasons is by adding some colour or new patterns, this could be a fresh lick of paint, adding a feature wall to a room, or better still just replace cushion covers and throws for lighter fabrics and add pops of colour that way, that is actually my go to 'switch-up' hack through the seasons, I do it every time and it works a treat!

Bring The Outside In
When I think of Spring I do immediately think of flowers in bloom and it might only be February but I've already been buying Daffodils, I just love them! Popping a couple of vases of Daff's or Tulips around your home not only adds an instant yet super easy pop of colour but it gives your home a Spring time feel! 

New Windows
Arhhh windows, obviously this can be a big job but new windows can make a big in pact on how your home looks and feels from the outside and in and can add a lot of value to your home too, and what better time to make the update than during springtime when you want your home to feel bright and airy! If you are looking to make the change Tuffx Glass is the place to look, they're huge toughened glass suppliers in the UK with over 25 years manufacturing experience, supplying places like M&S, Edinburgh Zoo, Next and of course not forgetting our homes! They have everything from glass balustrades and balconies to conservatory glass and fixed roof lights, the choice is endless!
Use Lighter Fabrics In Your Bedroom
Put that teddy bedding away and fold up those thick heavy throws and replace them with lighter cotton sheets or some linen. I also love keeping things quite neutral in colour when it comes to my bedding during Spring, it just add a soft, delicate feel!

Give The Garden A Spruce Up.
I don't know about you but our garden gets severely neglected over the autumn/winter period, so its time for a well needed spruce up! You can freshen up your pots buy giving them a paint and it's the perfect time to plant your bulbs ready for Spring/Summer! I also like to grab a couple of Spring hanging baskets as they add a nice pop of colour! Also give your patio some TLC, get the table and chairs back out ready for those sunny Spring mornings, add some fairy lights around the garden and fill up those bird feeders!  

Are you thinking of giving your a home a little Spring update? What are you wanting to change? I'd love to know!

Blueberry Cheesecake Candle By Kiss Air Candles!

Hey beaut's!

If you've read my blog for a while now you'll know I am absolutely obsessed with candles and home fragrances, particularly the ones from Kiss Air Candles which I've fallen in love with since I was introduced to them last year! Now that all of my festive scents have finally been burnt through it was time to freshen things up with this AMAZING Blueberry Cheesecake scent, and yes it does smell as good as it sounds!

If your new to Kiss Air Candles, they literally sell everything that will make your house smell incredible, theres wax melts, wax burners, tea lights, candles and reed defusers with so many scents to choose from. What I love about Kiss Air Candles is that all of their candles are made in small batches using natural soyabean (vegetable) wax, cotton wicks and the finest fragrances that are all vegan friendly as well as paraben and phthalate free. These raw materials work together to give the candles a cleaner burn (no soot here!), fabulous scent throw and an impressive burn time. 
Sweet, foodie scents are always my favourites so I just knew Blueberry Cheesecake was 
going to be a winner for me, the fragrance itself is made up of refreshing blueberry tones giving a light, fruity aroma that sits on a sweet creamy vanilla biscuit. It smells just like the real thing, you'll definitely be craving dessert whilst you burn this one thats for sure! Despite being quite sweet I never find it heavy or sickly which is good, it has that perfect balance between the fruity notes and sugary sweet notes, it just works! As for the scent throw...it's very good and managed to fill the entire house very quickly and still lingered when it had been blown out, it's also one of those candles that when you walk past it when its not even lit you get the most amazing whiff! The candle has an approximate burn time of 30 to 35 hours which is pretty good for a smaller sized candle, and I love the fact it comes in a glass jar as you can re-use it after your candle is burnt out!
If your looking for some new candles to burn this Spring then I cant recommend Kiss Air Candles enough, they have so many scents to choose from and Blueberry Cheesecake definitely gets my seal of approval, I'll be buying this one again thats for sure!

You can buy the Blueberry Cheesecake Candle HERE for £14.00.
