My hair has been through a lot in my mere 25 years. I’m have naturally auburn hair but it’s seen the affects of severe bleaching, going bald from wearing too many hair extensions (yes, really) and going from almost to my bum to 2 inches long and every length and style in between. My hair has stayed it’s natural colour for a good few years now and I’m not planning on changing that any time soon and it’s back to a length I like but I’m still aware of the importance of taking care of your hair and always keen to try new hair products.
Look at me, two beauty related blog posts in the first 2 weeks of the year! I’ve always said I’m not a beauty blogger (and predominantly I’m not) but lately, I have really enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and branching out a little more to this genre. I may not have the most articulate language to describe smells and textures of things but I enjoy it and that’s what important, right? Anyway! When I was sorta, 16-19, I was an avid fake tan wearer. If you knew me in person now, you’d honestly wonder how that was possible and whilst I look back and miss being a bronze goddess, I didn’t have the best skills and knowledge of fake tan. You just put 4 layers on right on top of each other and be done with it, right?
At the end of last year, I was lucky enough to win the October Birchbox from the lovely Lisa who runs Lisa’s Notebook. First of all, if you haven’t already, you should 100% go and stalk her blog for a few hours because it’s absolutely beautiful and ranges from books to beauty so there’s a little something for everyone. Got it? Okay, cool. Anyway, so if you know me, I’m not too savvy when it comes to beauty and make-up and that’s a-okay. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy trying new products and talking about them – it makes a nice change and is actually quite a nice little challenge for me every once in a while. So I thought as I’ve never reviewed a beauty subscription box before, it’s a new year and the perfect time for me to step out of my comfort zone!
