Didn't really buy that much last month, I had to replace the Primark boots I got as the buckle broke and got these suede boots from New Look for just £20 down from £45. I also received a super cosy oversized cardigan from Nomads, got a pair of Next wellies from Choice for £13.50 down from £40. From Argos I got a foldable Habitat table to do my painting/drawing on without ending with stomach pain from sitting uncomfortably.
Last but not least, I got a pair of earrings from Topshop, free L'occitane Pivoine Sublime moisturiser and serum samples and won a Guinot Instant Comfort Mask on a giveaway.

Today I only had to work until 12:30, plus I had a bit of chocolate cheesecake because it was a workmate's last day, she also brought us some gifts and I got some Ferrero Rocher chocolates!
Then my husband picked me up for lunch and when we got home I forgot I had my phone on my lap and stood up to get out of the car and my cover broke :'( haha.



Holiday Party Dresses

With the holidays fast approaching, it is only right to start thinking about what we would like to wear if we have any important events coming up such as a Christmas dinner or a New Year's parties. At Promtimes.co.uk they specialize in dresses for every size and occasion, including prom, cocktail, evening, wedding and plus size dresses. Here are a couple of my favourite dresses from the site to inspire you for the holiday season:

On the left we have this gorgeous option with a more formal approach: the full length makes it look very elegant and sophisticated, so if showing off your legs is not your thing (or you think you'd be too cold otherwise) then this dress is for you. It has a lovely true red hue all over which is flattering on most skin tones and is sure to grab everyone's attention for all the right reasons. The fitted bodice and sweetheart neckline give it an extra feminine touch which you can accentuate by wearing your hair up and adding a sparkly necklace or statement dangly earrings. 

The dress on the right, one of the many under £50 options on promtime.co.uk, is a very similar option to the left dress, as it shares the same fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline and billowy overlay skirt, only this time in black. That's right, a little black dress never fails and if you are young and like shorter dresses or the event is a more casual one then I think this could be an excellent option. Team it with a sparkly bangle or glittery platforms and you're ready to go.

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo & Conditioner

Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo & Conditioner

Some time ago I won a John Frieda competition where I received both the Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner, along with the Shine Shock Perfecting Glosser from the same line, a ciate nail polish and a topshop makeup bag. 

The shampoo and conditioner both claim to have an illuminating formula with a shine infusing complex and are supposed to leave hair radiant for a long lasting, high gloss brunette. They are designed for all shades of brunette. 

The shampoo has a translucent gel texture, which surprised me a bit as I thought it would be thicker and creamier as the Full Repair one, which was my first John Frieda set of products, so compared to that I was left a bit disappointed, plus it has dried out my scalp, leaving it a bit flaky and itchy, so I think I'll have to stop using it. 

The conditioner is thicker and creamier than the shampoo but it has tiny glitter particles in it which I was worried would go everywhere but once you rinse your hair they disappear, I assume they are there to help produce a glossy shine on the hair but I'm not seeing an amazing difference in my hair. 

Overall, not a fan of these 2 products sadly as the John Frieda Full Repair range set the bar very high for me.
