My love for Lana Del Ray

I love this girls style, music.. everything about her I love.
The version of this song is beautiful. The music stripped down to acoustic lets us all see just how amazing her voice is and how truly great the lyrics are.

The Naked Range- 97% Natural Haircare

I read about the naked haircare products on and just instantly thought I have to try these... To be perfectly honest, I hadn't really given much thought to using natural products before, I didnt realise how my hair would benefit from using them and I didnt even realise that they sold natural products in places such as boots or superdrug.
I can't begin to tell you how much better the condition of my hair is within two months of using this range. Its softer and shinier and just generally looks alot healthier than it ever has done before.
In the majority of normal shampoos/conditioners there are things called sulphates. Sulphates cut through grease alot better allowing for a much deeper clean however they strip your hair of all its natural oils which will lead to your hair drying out alot faster.
Natural products can generally be more expensive to buy but I didnt think the naked range was too expensive compared to products I would normally use. The shampoo and conditioner were both about £4.50 each and I think they were well worth the money. They smell lovely, make my hair feel and look lovely and there good for my hair. Even my hairdresser commented on what good condition my hair was in :-) So I'm glad I've ditched usuing sulphates and would definatley reccomend you do the same!!

Kate Moss Marries Jamie Hince..

Kate Moss is a style Icon across the world without even trying half the time and I'd be lying if I said I hadnt been obsessing about what the gorgeous supermodel would wear on her wedding day-
I wasn't dissapointed!

Last week Kate Moss married rocker Jamie Hince in a traditional church ceremony in the Cotswolds. She looked absoloutely stunning in a vintage-styled Julien Galliano dress covered in rhinestones. Jamie complemeted the bride by wearing an unusually light suit for the groom- but really let Kate shine in the spotlight in her beautiful gown. 
Kate boasted 15 bridesmaids, which may seem a little excessive but I think it really works and all the pictures I've seen look really gorgeous. I love the bohemian feel to the wedding and that the bridemaids look like flower faireies with there garlands.
 The bridesmaids were an all star cast of Kates famous friends children, including Kates own daughter Lila Grace,8, Jude Law and Sadie Frosts daughter Iris,11, Keith Richards grandaughter Ella Richards and Kates secret half sister Charlotte Moss,13.
Naomi Campbell attended the wedding but in true A-list style arrived late-after the bride and had to run to get her seat in time. Jefferson Hack, Kates ex boyfriend and father of Lila Grace was also there.

Soap &Glory Glow Lotion

After buying a "The Righteous Butter" and "Flake Away" both by Soap&Glory, I had Confidence in the Glow Lotion being just as amazing! Unfortunately though, it didn't live up to my expectations.
Glow Lotion by Soap&Glory is described on the pack as a- "drop dead gorgeous glimmer lotion for the body". I thought this would be a staple beauty product for my summer wardrobe and snatched it up straight away. However, it didnt take long for me to realise that this product just didnt live up to its description on the pack! Sure it smells lovely and its not a bad moisturiser either but its supposed to make you glow and glimmer and this just didn't happen! Even when I looked really closely at my skin I could hardly see any shimmer (and applied quite a bit to see if that made any difference). My friend had said it was subtle but I wouldn't even have said that as I just couldnt see it at all!
Conclusion; For £5.11- very dissapointing.

Welcome to my new blog..

Hello everyone,
I've been slowly working on a new blog. I wanted to bring across my personality in the design a bit more and I found with my onsugar account I was quite limited with what I could do. Also, I realised after setting it up that you could only follow me if  you held an account with on sugar which I'm sure put alot of people off following me. So hopefully this account will be alot better for me all around!
I'm still quite new to this and am still trying to figure out what I can do so if any of you have any tips or ideas I'd love to hear from you!

Love From
