Hair Care Routine

Hey Guys,
So today I am going to be doing my hair care routine, I am sorry if this is really boring
Okay so the first products I use on my hair is shampoo. My favourite shampoo to use is this simple one. Its really nice on the hair as there is no chemicals in it. It leaves my hair feeling soft and silky. You can buy it from savers or boots for about £1.20. I also sometimes use this dove one but not as much.
I love to condition my hair with the Aussie Miracle Moist conditioner. Its works so well on my hair and it smells amazing. I don't use it everyday as it is near to £4.50 a bottle. You can buy it from boots/ Superdrug. I actually got mine from Tesco when it was on offer. Because I dye my hair I also use the conditioner for blondes which comes with the dye. I use a nice n' easy summer blonde hair dye at the moment. The conditioner comes with the box but you can buy them separately from Superdrug for 99p. This conditioner just maintains the colour of my hair for me.
For extras I use Vo5 ultimate hold hairspray and Vo5 heat defence spray. The hair spray is okay. It does hold my hair in place however it dries to quickly which I don't like as it leaves white flakes behind however the heat protection spray works really well. Both of these products are under £2 and can be brought from savers/boots.
 I use so many different hairbrushes on my hair- its unreal. I love my tangle teaser because it is so good at getting knots out. I got my tangle teaser as a present so I don't know how much it is but I think you can buy them from fragrance direct. I also have a backcomb brush which is from Primark for a £1 and it actually works surprising well. My other three are just basic brushes I use, which are from Avon.
Thanks for reading. I hope it was okay and not to boring.

Sunday Edit #1

Today I am going to be doing my first Sunday edit post, which is basically where you talk about what happened in the last week. I am really sorry I couldn't blog this week. I have had a really hectic past 2 weeks. we spent most of the days going to and from the hospital which Is a hour's drive from where I live. So when we got back everyday I was very tried and didn't want to blog.
I spent all of Monday evening on my own and had my dinner very late, which I didn't like. 
I have finished my GCSE's but still had mock exams. I had maths, French and child Dev. Maths and French went awfully bad but child Dev was ok ( I got a A*). I have one more maths mock to go on Tuesday which is on the same day as sports day so I don't know how that is going to work.
I also have lots of coursework to do in geography, photography, French, ICT and child Dev. Photography is so much pressure and I wish I didn't take it now.
I am actually going on a photography trip next week, which I am kind of looking forward to but to be honest I haven't had time to think about it. I hate this time of year at school because everyone is so tried and annoyed but teachers still put pressure on us to finish work when there is so much going on
On a slightly happier note, I hit 2K on Instagram this week. Which is lovely. ( My Instagram is @x__nicolemarie__x btw if you want to check it out)
I also finished The fault in our stars which is kind of a achievement for me because I haven't read a book all the way through that I chose to read for about 3 years. So yay to me :)
The world cup started this week. Which I am really looking forward to watching because I don't like normal football but something about the world cup gets me excited. My team in the sweepstake is Columbia. wooooo!!!!! 
I am just planning on having a lazy afternoon for the rest of the day and watching some films. I have loads of blog ideas up my sleeve for the next week. And hopefully I won't feel so tried so will blog most days.
Thanks for reading xx

Boohoo Wishlist

Hi Guys
I was looking for new summer clothes and I stumbled across Boohoo.com. I have heard of them before but never brought from them. I actually thought they were going be expensive, so I was pleasantly surprised when I looked about the website and everything was really cheap. To me they are a bit like a online Primark- which is great.  So I thought I would make a quick wishlist with some of my favourite items.

Okay so the first item on the wishlist is this amazing Pineapple Print String Back Playsuit. I love the pattern on this so much. The pineapples are just so cute. This is such a effortless playlist you could wear to the beach. And for only £12- its an amazing price.

The next item is super girly and floral. Its a Tropical Print Swing Playsuit. Yes its another playsuit but this one is so girly and floral I had to include it. The pattern is beautiful. Again you can just throw it on for a evening at the beach. This one is also £12

I am in love with this Fruit Print Skater Dress. The pattern is so pretty. I don't even like fruit but this dress is adorable. It looks quite short but with some lace cycling shorts on underneath-it will look perfect. This is £15. which is super cheap because if you saw this in Topshop it would £45

 As soon as I saw this I fell in love with the colour. This is a Waffle Kimono Blazer. To be honest I had no idea what one of those was but basically it is a kimono and a blazer in one. Which is perfect if you want a blazer that is not tight fitting. It comes in peach, black and pink. And is £25

My last item on the wish list is this Floral Button Through 90's Shirt Dress. The pattern on this is so cute. I love the way it looks so 90's like. This would look perfect dressed up with a lovely pair of heels.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I really need to go and make a order at Boohoo.com .

My Top 6 bikinis - under £20

Hello guys :)
Today I am going to be doing another fashion related post. I was on the look out for some new swimwear, when doing so I thought I could compose a blog post for you guys, talking about my some of my favourites, ready for the summer.
1. Okay so the first ones at the top are the floral ones. These are probably my favourites, the pattern on them is so cute and pretty. These are from Matalan. The Bikini top is £6 and the briefs are £5. These are such bargains, they are both under £10 so you can't really go wrong. The top is ruched so it makes it look even cuter and easier to wear.
2.  The ones underneath are a pink crochet pattern. The Bikini top is triangle shaped. I think these will look super girly on holiday and the shade of pink is really nice as well. These are from select. The Bikini top is £6 and the bottoms are £5. If you don't like the pink you can get them in black as well. Or you could just get both as they are so cheap!
3. My next favourites are the ones the model Is wearing with the brown hair. I love the tie dye pattern on them. These are from boohoo. The whole set is £18, which I think is really good.
4. This Bikini has such a timeless pattern, you could wear this again and again. These are also from boohoo. This set is slightly cheaper at £16. Which is amazing as your not buying the top and bottom separately. I love the nautical pattern on them and I think they will suit all skin tones
5. This set are super girly. They have this amazing neon flower print on them. The colours on them are super cute as well. They are from Newlook. The Top is £9.99 and the bottoms are £7.99. A little bit more pricey but totally worth it.
6. My last favourites are also from Newlook as well. I think this set is perfect if your not in to pretty girly patterns but want something stylish and slightly edgy. The top is £14.99 and the bottoms are £9.99. Ok together they do not come under £20 but I just couldn't leave them out. The pattern is this amazing orange sunset and on the back of the top there is this amazing cut out design.

Review| My Soap and Glory Favourites

Today I am going to be doing my first review on my blog. I love Soap and Glory products, its one of my favourite brands of all time. So I thought I would do some quick reviews on some of my favourites.
Okay, so my first favourite is the Mist you Madly body fragrance set. The set comes with three
sprays; Mist you Madly (the pink one) , Girligo (the white one) and Glam-a lot (the brown one)
I brought all three in a set for £9.50 for 100ml at Christmas time in boots. However if you want to buy them separately , you can buy them- on the soap and glory website for £6.50 each for 250ml.
All three smell fruity and floral. They are all really wearable scents. The packaging is really pretty
and the bottle tops to not come of easy, so you can carry them around  in your bag. I have  
had these 7 months and they are lasting a really long time.
My next favourites is heel genius. This is a foot cream/ mask. I love heel genius it comes in a 125ml
bottle for £5.00 and I use it everyday. It works really well, it sinks in to your feet quickly making them really soft. It is not greasy when it is applied and it smells of apples- which I quite like. It's one
of the best foot creams I own. I have it for about 8 months and it is lasting such a long time.
Hand food is my next favourite. I have the mini hand food which is £2.50 for 50ml and the full size
version is £5.00 for 125ml. I am pretty sure everyone has heard of hand food- it has won so many awards and I can see why. It smells of apples and makes you hands smell fresh. It applies quickly
if you apply a pea sized amount, so it doesn't go greasy. I use it everyday and would definitely buy
the full version in future, as for £5 you can't really go wrong- The 50ml goes along way though.
My last favourite is The Righteous butter cream. You can buy the 300ml for £10.50 or the 50ml for £2.50 (which I have) The butter cream works miracles on my skin. It makes it super soft when I apply it after a shower. It applies easily without being greasy. I wouldn't buy the 300ml version however I am going through the 50ml version quite quickly so I don't use it daily    
You can buy all these Soap and Glory products on the Soap and Glory website or the Boots website.

So this will be my first haul on my blog. I am quite excited to do this because I have picked up some lovely bits in the last week. It's only a small haul but here goes :) xx  
So these first two items I picked up from the carboot this morning. I was
so happy when I found the dungarees because if you have read my
June wishlist then you will know I was on the eye out for some
and I couldn't believe I found some at the carboot. I am in love
with the jumper as well. I can't wait to throw it over an outfit
on a cool summers evening.

Big jumper/ cardigan £1 originally from Dorothy Perkins

Dungarees originally from Primark 70p

The next two items I brought on Amazon. If you read my 25 random facts about Me Tag then
you know I collect vinyl's. So last week I thought I would pick up Bombay Bicycle club- So long
see you tomorrow. I love Bombay Bicycle club as there music is really different- you can listen to
them here. I also picked up two books- The fault in our stars and The perks of being a wallflower. I know I am very
late on the bandwagon but my friends kept telling me to read TFIOS so I picked it up alongside The perks of being a

Bombay Bicycle Club- So long see you tomorrow £14.99

TFIOS- £3.85 The perks of being a wallflower- £5.51

I also popped in to HMV last week and I picked up one vinyl.
If you collect vinyl you should definitely check out HMV as they have a massive selection.

  Arctic Monkeys- whatever people say that's what I am not - £14.99

My last item in this haul is a dress that I picked up from the charity shop. Its this lovely
dress to wear on the beach. Its strapless and has a lovely pattern (sorry the picture does not do it justice)
Beach dress- originally from New look £4
Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed This little haul (sorry the
pictures are rubbish) xx
