John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE to the rescue

When it comes to hair, I have one sworn enemy. Frizz. If you can give me frizz free hair, your brand will make it in my good books quicker than you can say 'straighteners' and that's exactly what John Frieda have managed to do. Their FRIZZ-EASE range doesn't come with any wild scientific claims, just a clear focus on delivering hair the moisture and shine that it's most likely craving if you straighten your hair as much as I do!

I apply the Intensive Masque everytime I wash my hair, after my usual shampoo and conditioner and leave it to soak for a couple of minutes before washing it out. Even before I come out of the shower, I can already feel a difference in my hair in terms of texture, something which really impressed upon first use. Despite being a reasonably little pot, I've used the product 6 or 7 times and there's still a good amount of product left, again something which I always find promising in a product. I hate products which seem to run out in what seems like days after I've bought them!

I was also recently sent the FRIZZ-EASE serum to try and although it hasn't bowled me over quite like the masque has, I find myself reaching for it more and more often, especially when I have straight hair for nights out. It works just as you'd expect, keeping hair looking sleek and taming any fly-aways. It has that typical 'hairdressers' scent to it as well which I love. Simple things....

Both products are available at Boots and I've also seen that there's a 2 for £8 deal on selected John Frieda haircare at the moment if you're keen to look after your bank balance as well as your hair! I've also come across the brilliant hair tutorials on the John Frieda youtube channel, which I may have attempt at some point if I can muster the courage/patience. If I ever reach hair-bow level, I'll let you know!

What products do you use to keep your hair healthy? Have you tried the FRIZZ-EASE range?

OOTD: A day in Brick Lane

I went up to Brick Lane on Saturday ready for some bowling fun with Witch Skincare and with a bit of a journey on the train there and back and a bit of walking (and serious bowling exercise of course!), I decided to go quite casual. I layered up a grey hoody and a camo jacket - my two latest purchases from Topshop - to keep warm and, rather than piling on the accessories, kept things simple  with my trusty H&M jeans and my bejellewed tee which I cannot stop wearing. I love anything remotely rainbow-y, glittery or sparkly so as soon as I saw it the other week, it was love at first sight. What do you think of it? Do you like to go casual for the weekends or do you prefer to dress up on your days off?

My first stop of the day was at Boudoir Parlour, a new salon set up by the Asma, the founder of Boudoir Lashes which I've blogged about before. She does amazing lash extensions which always look long and full of volume, without looking at all false, and I'd recommend her to anyone wanting to give lash extensions a go!

After my trip to Asma, I did some window shopping, grabbed some lunch and then met up with Shope who was kind enough to take these outfit photos for me. She writes an amazing blog with her sister Shore and they are both absolutely lovely girls. I always have so much fun spending time with them when we meet up! Shope and I wandered around a vintage fair for a little while and picked up a few bargains, before heading to All Star Bowling for the Witch Skincare #FlawlessFriends event with lots of our blogging friends. We were spoilt with crazy amounts of food and had some amazing cocktails too. The Luau was definitely the blogger favourite but I could not work out how to pronounce it for the life of me!!

It was a really lovely day and it was great to catch up with some of the #FlawlessFriends girls. I filmed bits and pieces of the day to give you guys an insight into some of the wonderful things I am lucky enough to be invited to and have posted the vlog on my Youtube channel.
