LOTD WISHLIST

Mustard Biker // Gold Playsuit // Blue Pinafore

So I'm in the position I find myself in every month, waiting for payday and making endless lists of things I want to buy when that glorious day arrives. I've only recently found Look of the Day but their sale is incredible and there's a tonne of items for a mere £5. Obviously I then got carried away and started looking at things that were slightly more than £5, but that mustard jacket though. All the heart eye emojis....

I've been spying these checkered blazers everywhere at the moment too, with those far trendier than me wearing them over the top of a slogan tee for an androgynous and effortless look, and as much as I want to jump on that bandwagon, I just don't think I could pull it off.  

I also had to include playsuits as they're my current go-to on a night out, in fact they've always been my go-to. The gingham playsuit is a total steal and the gold playsuit would look wins if you're celebrating something special.

Which autumn / winter trends will you be joining in with this season?

MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL REVIEW

maybelline lash sensational mascara review before and after

Soooo despite there being a tonne of long lasting hype around Maybelline Lash Sensational, it wasn't 'till my bestie Caroline bought it that I decided I needed to have it too. I used to be a massive fan of Maybelline mascaras but recently L'oreal have enticed me away with their Miss Baby Roll offering and I hadn't looked back.

But for £8.99 I thought I'd give this a go and initially I really liked it. The plastic wand is slightly curved making it easy to apply to the pesky corner lashes, and the formula didn't seem to need time to "thicken up" like a lot of mascaras do.

But over time the clumps came, the formula became sticky, and applying it just became difficult, especially on the bottom lashes which would end up in a big smudgy mess. I'd say this was at it's prime for about a week before things started to go downhill.

Would I buy it again? Oh no. I feel bad that I strayed away from L'oreal and will definitely be repurchasing Miss Baby Roll for the 1231th time when I'm next in Boots.

Have you tried Lash Sensational? What did you think to it?

RPR REPAIR MY HAIR TREATMENT MASK

RPR repair my hair treatment mask for hair growth review

As you know I've had a bit of a nightmare with my hair recently, and I'm now trying everything in sight that promises to repair, strengthen, or make my locks grow.

The RPR Repair My Hair treatment claims to do the first two, and as a result of that I'm hoping for Goldilocks style hair asap. It's a Keratin mask which means it's packed full of delicious proteins to mend damage hair, and I've been trying it for a few weeks now to see if it does just that.

So does it? YES. I find with these masks that they always need leaving on for longer than the instructions say, so I shampoo my hair first, rinse it out, then slather this on wet hair whilst in the bath. I usually leave it for a good 20 minutes before washing it out and conditioning. As soon as you wash it out you can feel a difference in your hair, mine is always so dry and coarse after shampooing but this turns it silky soft and easy to brush afterwards.

The main ingredients are Aloe Vera (which is meant to be amazing for hair growth), Ginseng, and Coconut Oil. The mixture of all three means it smells divine and reminds me of holidays. I also like that the packaging is a tube rather than a tub, as you don't end up going overboard and scooping way to much out.

Would I recommend this? Yes! For a high end treatment it's not too expensive (£14.50) and it really does seem to do the trick, it doesn't just simply coat your hair in silicones like a lot of masks do.

I'm still on the lookout for amazing hair products, so if you have any recommendations let me know!
