Pantene Repair & Protect Range Review

I bought this set from Asda awhile ago at an absolute bargain price, I can't remember how much but I remember it was a bargain. I have just finished the bottles off and thought i would share my thoughts with you. 

What they say :

Moisturisation and resilience* for your dry/damaged hair from Pantene. The Repair & Protect collection helps to:

  • Restore hair’s strength*.
  • Protect against future styling damage
  • Prevent the formation of split ends.

*against styling damage.
Containing Pantene Pro-V Advanced Formula, this rich repairing shampoo, with micro-nourishers helps to lock in moisture deep down, working with your hair to leave it healthy looking and shiny.

What i say: 
I really like these products. They have a fantastic smell and for the reasonable price deliver great results. I feel that my hair has lasted much better between cuts and i can notice a reduction in split ends. The only downside is the the Repair and Protect Masque. I have very dry hair and this mask doesn't cut it as a deep conditioner. I would much rather pay the extra money for a mask form the salon, Wella SP being my favourite, as a weekly treat for my hair. However if your hair isn't in as bad a condition as mine this may be a perfect budget hair masque. 

What is your favourite hair treat ? What is your budget for a luxury hair treatment ?

DIY Spot treatment: Aspirin Spot Treatment

I'm back !! Sorry for the lack of content lately but i was off getting married and that took up every minute of my spare time. But i'm back now and i wanted to share with you this little trick i learned while trying to keep my skin perfect during the run up to the big day. 

All you will need is:
  • 3 or 4 Aspirin
  • Small Bowl
  • Warm Water
  • Cotton Buds

Place the 3 or 4 aspirin in a small dish 

Add a small splash of warm water

The aspirin should start to dissolve. Give them a stir until it develops into a paste.
Use the cotton buds to add the pasts to the blemishes. Leave for a couple of hours or if possible over night for really big blemishes.

If you try this please let me know how you get on. I loved it and will never buy an expensive spot treatment ever again. They tend to just dry my skin out and leave me with marked skin for a few weeks. 

Do you have any secret emergency skin fixes ?

George: Miami Heat Range

George at Asda have just released there latest "To be seen in" Range. Miami Heat !!

 I was excited to see this as you all know i am a huge fan of George. I think they bring out some great on trend pieces at amazing prices. You just have to be prepaired to have a good look for them, they aren't always arranged right in front of you like high street stores you require a certain amount of imagination.

 I was really dissapointed with the Last "to be seen in" range which was tribal. It felt a bit mumsyy and to over done. This on the other hand is fab and i think i am going to buy the entire range to fill my suitcase for my holidays in a few weeks. Enjoy my favorite picks below and let me know what your favorite pieces , if any, are.

 Love D

Jennifer Rose Jewellery

I came across this Jennifer Rose Jewellery in the beautiful Centrestage Dancewear in Linlithgow. I immediately feel in love with the jewellery. It is bright and delicate and very on trend. The jewellery is all silver plated and hand made by a local lady which makes me love it even more. Believe it or not it is actually designed for girls but there are many of the pieces that I love. I think Jennifer Rose Jewellery will make the perfect gift for big girls and little girls and I have bought a couple pieces for my nieces instead of Easter Eggs. The packaging is gorgeous too, nicer than anything i have ever seen on high end jewellery lines.

Nails of the Week: Pokadot Minx

I would love to be able to have lovely nails all the time but unfortunately i find it difficult to squeeze time into sleep into my schedule these days never mind doing my nails. However that said i am going to make a good effort to have a pamper session on a Sunday that will include doing my nails for the week.

I think this is a good habit to get into and make sure i dedicate some well deserved time to myself. I decided to go for the pokadot minx last Sunday. they are great as they look fab but actually only took me about 15 mins to put on. They lasted perfectly until around Thursday and by today (Saturday) they are starting to look a little bit rough round the edges but its Sunday tomorrow and i will freshen the up then. Wonder what to do with them .......

Do you have a dedicated pamper day ? How do you fit in some me time ?
