I absolutely love having my hair done and the bouncy voluminous tresses that my hairdresser can create.. but I always struggle to achieve this at home. I am not skilled at blow drying whatsoever and achieving volume from the root, so when I do my own hair I always feel like it looks a little sad and flat in the front... *sad face*

Long time readers of my blog will remember that once I had a weave, (read the post here) just at the front where my hair was thinner and I loved the effect of it. What I didn't love however was the washing and styling of it - it took FOREVER. I have become most cranky in my old age, especially when my hair is bothering me.

SO. When the wonderful team at ClipHair told me all about their clip ins I was immediately interested to see what I could do with them! I wasn't sure what colour I needed but sent a couple of pics over to the team and the most amazing hair arrived in the post a few days later and was a SPOT ON match.

I had my roots done and a nice curly blow thanks to my gorgey hairdresser Jaymee at Muse Manchester and then curled the hair pieces with my GHD large curling tong and then put in some, but not all of the pieces, as I wanted thickness in the front rather than extending the length of my hair.

I am SO impressed with the hair, how it blends seamlessly with mine and how they look, they are exactly the kind of thing I was after and I have no doubts I will be using them a lot.

I think they are a very reasonable price point for the quality and especially when you look at similar products from other brands.

As well as having the hair clipped in and loose, I also think clip ins can be a great way to style your hair in an updo or curly pony. I was able to pop my hair up into a ponytail, you couldn't see the clips,  it was so easy to do and looked great! Perfect for the Races or Holidays where you need your hair to last. 

I am off to Dubai in May and it will be very hot, so at night it will be nice to be able to put my hair up and it still look nice. A massive plus on hair extensions is that they seem to hold a curl much better than my own hair does :)

I would highly recommend ClipHair and they have the biggest shade range I have ever seen!

Get Your Holiday Wardrobe Sorted with River Island 💖

After being stranded in Dublin last week in the snow I am getting ready to book a holiday... GET ME TO THAT SUNSHINE BABY!

On a serious note, I was actually stranded in Dublin after Storm Emma hit. I was supposed to leave on Thursday and ended up having to come home on a 12 hour journey, via Belfast, on Saturday instead. I know that doesn't sound very long but when you have packed for a work conference and somehow pick up the lurgy aswell I think I'm allowed to be a little miffed.

Me and my pal Steph are heading to Dubai again once we can find a date that suits us and naturally as soon as there's a sniff of a holiday I immediately hit up the online shopping and consider pieces to purchase for the perfect holiday wardrobe.

I had a Birthday code sent through from River Island which is what prompted this wishlist but actually I see there is 20% off at the moment (on 6th March 2018) when you spend £75 using code SPRING18. CHA-CHING!

I lovvveeee the glamour of Dubai and my suitcase contents usually reflect this - you will see from the above there is a mix of night time dresses and playsuits and then some more casual bits thrown in for good measure!

Special shout out to the yellow cardigan for either travelling or braving the shopping malls as you should cover your shoulders and they can often be freezing with the air con!  

What's on your holiday shopping list?
