I try to be a conscious consumer – I’m really passionate about cruelty free products, try to be kind to the environment, and am thinking more and more about things like buying local and the ethics behind the companies I support. One company whose ethos I really love is Davines, who make sustainable high quality hair care products. Continue reading
I’m hanging out for a holiday, so all I can think of at the moment is lounging about in the sun and swimming in the sea. Luckily, it’s a long weekend here in NZ so I will be getting a chance to take some time out. What do you have planned for the long weekend? Continue reading
I spied this on my friend Sophie’s blog Nana Wintour and thought it would be something interesting to answer for myself. If you’re a longtime reader then you’ll know that I only use cruelty free beauty products, so if you’re thinking of going cruelty free then this could be a great place for you to discover some loves. I’d love to know your answers as well, so make sure you leave me a comment at the end! Continue reading

I had the pleasure of visiting Live & Let Dye salon in Mount Eden yesterday, for a colour appointment with Kirsty.

I went in not really knowing what I wanted – which as I am sure you will have figured out by now is very unusual for me – and had a good chat to Kirsty and Michelle about what was important to me in terms of colour (low maintenance, because I’m a student and can’t afford to colour my hair as often as some looks require and something that will grow out okay without announcing to the world that I haven’t had my colour done in *ahem* five months).
