Why I like Instyle Magazine

April’s and May’s 2017 covers of US Instyle magazine made me happy. April’s featured Victoria Beckham and with May, Amy Schumer. 2 ladies with 2 totally different body shapes and age. Victoria Beckham gives us thinner lipped girls hope in a social media world of plump lips and lip injections.

With that in mind and the Summer Solstice in 8 days, you bet I’m going to lap up the heat until it says see ya for the Southern hemisphere. 

This week’s Weekend Friday Favourites is slightly different this week. A little catch up thrown in amongst things that have caught my eye (more…)

Why I Switched Brushing For Combing And Hair Up Date

A few months ago I gave up my beloved Tangle Teezer for a simple wooden comb. I switched hairdressers and before they even started cutting my hair they recommended hair and scalp rebuilding treatment. I didn’t even get my hair cut on my first visit. 

My hair’s fine and just because I don’t dye it or use a hair dryer doesn’t mean I get away scot free on damage. (more…)
