The Sportswear Edit - High Street

You all know I love Primark and I'm obsessed with their gym wear - it's cute, stylish and affordable. I do recommend sizing down in the leggings for an even better fit. Here's my Sportswear Edit from the high street. Let me know your favourite pieces!

The Weekly Top Five #8

Its been a hot minute since I've written a weekly roundup. I'm aiming to post at least once a week this year (I was so slack last year) so here's my second post of the week!

Little Mix - Glory Days
When I was younger I was a huge girl band fan (Spice Girls and Girls Aloud) I used to have a Spice Girls tee and I loved it! I've never been a big fan of Little Mix but after giving their latest album Glory Days a listen - I'm obsessed!

Pretty Little Liars
It's no secret that I'm obsessed with PLL! I can't wait for the season 7 finale, I'm rewatching it from the beginning (love you Netflix).

Superdrug Extracts Conditioner
As my hair is bleached and dry, I've ditched the sulphates and silicones in hair products as they're drying and ruining my hair. I've opted to wash my hair with conditioner instead of shampoo. I use a shampoo once every two(ish) weeks? The Superdrug Extract Conditioners are amazing and only 89p at the moment!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
My favourite Christmas present this year is definitely the highly regarded ABH MR Palette. The warm-toned shades are right up my street and they're so pigmented too! Full review coming soon...

Pure Gym
I've been meaning to join the gym for ages and what better time to join than a new year? I like Pure Gym because it's affordable, there are plenty of machines and it's a great atmosphere. I'm really enjoying going to the gym!

How to Maintain Luscious Locks All Year Round

Credit: Jeffrey Robert | Instagram
Today's post is all about hair care, from guest posters Keeva Organics!

In a perfect world, every day would be a good hair day, but for most women, this is not the case, particularly if you put your hair through the paces with chemical products like perms and dyes and styling tools such as hot wands and hair dryers. All of these products and processes can leave your hair looking less than lustrous. If you want to maintain the natural beauty of your locks, all year round, you need to understand how the seasons can affect your hair and treat it accordingly. This is an easy way to make your hair look and feel like a million dollars.

NYX Pore Filler | Review

I'm a huge fan of pore filling primers, Benefit's POREfessional in particular. I think I might have found a dupe: NYX's Pore Filler.

Retailing at £11, NYX Pore Filler is much cheaper than POREfessional and they do the same job at concealing pores and creating a smooth surface.

Pore fillers are my favourite because they leave the skin feeling silky, smooth, they hide pores and disguise texture for a perfect base.

NYX's pore filler does a great job at filling in my pores and smoothing texture left from breakouts.

It's definitely a great budget option if you don't want to fork out for Benefit. Out of the two, I'd definitely recommend NYX's - it's excellent!

Barry M Flawless Mist & Fix Makeup Setting Spray - Dewy Finish | Review

Setting sprays are my addiction and when I saw Barry M's Mist & Fix I had to pick it up. I love trying new ones and I'm so glad that more drugstore brands are bringing them out. 

There are three sprays in the range: Dewy Finish, Matte Finish & a Priming Water. All of the sprays are at a bargainous £4.99!

I use the Dewy Finish spray after finishing my make-up and during the day to give my skin a refresh and it really hydrates my skin and settles the powder into my skin.

I love UD's All Nighter Setting Spray but the Barry M Spray is such a great alternative!

NYX Foundation Mixer - White | Review

When NYX announced their UK arrival into Boots stores I was so excited for the Pro Foundation Mixer in white. I'm so pale I haven't found a foundation that exactly matches my ghostly complexion, so this product is my saviour!

Its creamy formula mixes into your foundation without altering the consistency or coverage. I use this everytime I apply foundation and I couldn't be without it!

It's purse-friendly at £7.50 and definitely lasts a while, considering how much I actually need to lighten the foundation...

With a range of shades NYX have: opal, luminous, deep, olive and warmth - they have every base covered!

Unwash Haircare | Review

Co-washing is having a big moment and Unwash have released products especially for this. 

The range comprises of: a Bio-Cleansing Conditioner*, Anti-Residue Cleanse* and a Hydrating Masque*. 

Instead of using shampoo, conditioner is used to cleanse the hair to prevent drying and frizz that can be caused by shampoo. It is a weird concept at first as we're all used to using shampoo.

The bio-cleansing conditioner replaces shampoo and gently cleanses while removing dirt and build-up. For a deeper clean the anti-residue cleanse works wonders. My favourite product is the hydrating masque, it leaves the hair feeling silky soft and frizz-free.

I love this three-step routine and I definitely noticed the benefits for my hair. It felt a lot smoother, shinier and softer. It is weird to not use shampoo especially as your hair gets greasier at first when ditching the shampoo.

Alongside the co-washing range is a dry cleanser, aka a dry shampoo. If you hate residue that can be left behind with dry shampoo then you will love this. It absorbs oil without leaving any residue for perfect second-day hair.

I definitely recommend trying the travel kit to see if you like this way to cleanse your hair.
