How to keep blonde hair protected in the sun / Charlie Miller Edinburgh.






In preparation for my trip to Gran Canaria I was back with my favourite stylist, Hayley at the South St Andrews St Charlie Miller salon. As well as touching up my roots and making transforming my locks into the perfect white blonde for my trip Hayley gave me the low down on keeping my freshly bleached hair protected in the sun.

Making sure my hair is covered is something new to me, as a natural brunette but now that I’m blonde, and for fear of going green in the sun it’s become a big priority during this trip. I’ve been deep conditioning, wearing hats and applying plenty of moroccan oil while sunbathing to keep my hair in the best condition possible. Hayley gave me these tips to ensure my hair stays looking fabulous while I’m away. 

  • Using the Kerastase holiday range is the perfect way to keep your locks looking fab, the range includes SPF protection as well as protecting your hair from chlorine and salt. It is a four piece set of creams, oils and leave in sprays that are all you need to keep blonde hair looking vibrant.

  • Try to always wear a hat when in the sun, it’s much needed protection from the strong and harmful rays that can dry out freshly bleached hair. 

  • Rinse hair with water before going into chlorine water as the water will add a layer of protection to your hair before the chemicals within chlorine can get to it. 

  • Use hair oils as much as possible and leave the oil on as long as possible when in the sun whilst wearing a hat so it can really get to work on your hair.

Back to school



Top-ASOS
Skirt-ASOS
Shoes- ASOS

Just like that Christmas break is over and we're back to uni on Tuesday for our second semester of third year (fear). The years have literally flown by and before we know it we'll be in fourth year and will have to think about leaving Edinburgh and our beautiful flat. Having time off before uni starts has been so nice, I honestly love nothing more than just kicking about our flat doing nothing. 

In 9 days Lew and I will be heading to Gran Canaria for some winter sun cause we can't bear this miserable weather anymore. We booked it on onthebeach.co.uk which I highly recommend for broke students like me, you just pay a deposit and then just pay it off bit by bit!

In prep for the holiday I'm back to the hair gods that are Charlie Miller tomorrow to get my roots done so I can be super blonde in the sun, expect and update tomorrow!

The gift of perfect skin




As you probably know I’m a big fan of Nu Skin and their amazing products and I recently had the opportunity to try out the Nu Skin Galvanic Spa II after already reviewing the Nu Skin Galvanic trio.

The device itself is incredibly easy to use and comes with 4 different heads to use on different conductors to treat the face, scalp or body and they are all used for-Firming the face, correcting fine lines, Shaping the body and stimulating hair growth.
The Galvanic spa ii also comes with gels for the pre treatment and for the treatment itself. During the pre-treat cycle, the device and the pre-treat gel are negatively charged. These negative charges repel each other and the gel binds the impurities in the skin. This will clean the skin from impurities and prepare the skin for the treatment. During the treatment cycle, the device and the treatment gel are positively charged. Hence, the beneficial ingredients can penetrate the skin effectively!


To use the product I started with a clean and dry face, I then applied a pre treatment gel to half of the face (note that the fingers must be wet before holding the device) I then set the device to setting one and followed the motion as described by Nu Skin. After the pre treatment is complete for the whole face I wiped the gel away and began to apply the treatment gel using setting 2, I continued this until the full treatment was complete. 

The Ageloc Gavlanic spa II device gives results like a professional spa facial
The whole treatment was really quick and easy and I’m already seeing the benefits of the product with my skin being firmer and even brighter already.

Tis the season











Coat-PrettyLittleThing
Jumpsuit- PrettyLittleThing
Top- Topshop
Boots- PrettyLittlething
Bag- Primark

I've been wearing this jumpsuit to death since I got it two weeks ago, it looks amazing with nothing underneath if I were going out but obv I haven't been because I'm 22 and old now so I've just been layering things under it so it's perfect for daytime wear. I write this just before I leave for my second last shift before going back to the Emerald Isle which I am very much looking forward to even though I'll miss the girls and Lewis dreadfully, even if I'm only going for a week.

I've also been wearing this amazing lilac fur coat non stop, for work, for drinks, for travelling I haven't taken it off. It makes me look like a huge parma violet I'm told, and I'm okay with that I love a parma violet.
