It's already that time of year when it's forever damp and grey outside. I don't know about you but the daily barrage of cold windy weather and central heating plays havoc with the condition of my hair. Recently I've discovered a few new hair care favourites which I'm hoping will help me to keep on top over the coming months. Here are 3 of my current favourites:

Nails Inc are well known for teaming up with big brands and offering free polishes. This time they are offering one of two gorgeous polishes when you purchase the new Max White One toothpaste by Colgate from Boots. Choose from a glossy red creme or metallic red. I went for the metallic finish as I don't have anything else similar in my collection. It's a gorgeous shade of red with a slight orange tone which perfectly matches the colour of the box.

Graze boxes are far from being a new thing and I've been wanting to try them for a long time now. I finally got round to ordering my first one when I came across a code that gave me 2 free boxes. If you're not familiar with Graze they are a company that post out boxes of healthy treats and snacks. You can set up a subscription for one box a fortnight, one a week or two a week depending on how often you want to receive them. There are loads of different snacks to choose from including nuts and seeds, dried fruit, popcorn and even cheeky slices of cake and flapjack.
So far I've had 3 boxes and I've enjoyed almost everything that I have been sent. My favourite so far has been the Korai Chutney which is a spiced tomato relish dip with baked curry bites and is absolutely scrummy! Everything I've had so far has been bursting with flavour. I'm making a big effort in recent weeks to be more health concious when choosing what snacks I eat and these boxes have been a really big help.
Pictured above is my second box in which I received:
Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl - blueberry yoghurt raisins, raspberry infused cranberries and blackcurrants.
Applewood Smoked Beef Jerky.
Herby Bread Basket - mini garlic croutons, mini basil breadsticks and oregano rice crackers.
Summer Berry Compote - berry compote with wholemeal shortbread dippers.
Have you tried Graze yet? What are your thoughts?

Tortured is definitely how I would describe my hair! I dye my hair once a month, heat style several times a week and wear clip in extensions pretty much everyday. Of course I do my best to protect my hair but, in all honesty, none of this can be doing my hair any good! I'm always looking out for a good intense conditioner to look after my poor abused locks and have tried quite a few different brands in the past.

A very unimaginative title and possibly my first and last outfit post! I don't usually do fashion posts but I thought I'd do a quick post of an outfit I wore last weekend to a wedding I attended. Being my usual forgetful self I forgot to put on my jewellery but here's the rest of my outfit:
Purple strapless dress - Vila
Silver lattice shoes - Internacionale
Black velour clutch bag - Peacocks
I didn't think to take a close up of my make up since I didn't intend on posting about it. It was quite a simple look with my usual base followed by theBalm Fratboy blush. I didn't want too much going on with my eyes as I wanted my lips to be the focus, so I simply lined top and bottom with a black liner and added a few coats of my new Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara. On my lips I wore recent favourite Laqa & Co Lip Crayon in Ring Of Fire.
I'll be doing a separate post on my nails at some point. I wore Leighton Denny Rebel underneath the amazing Max Factor Fantasy Fire with an accent nail of Southern Lights for some extra holographic sparkle.
My poochie pal posing with me is Beau. Isn't he the cutest?!
