Christmas Jumpers 2016

I've been scanning around for a Christmas jumper for this year. Every year we are spoiled with choices and sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the numbers but I've managed to narrow it down to five choices. My five favourite Christmas jumpers are from Next, ASOS and TedBaker. 

Have you found your perfect Christmas jumper yet?

Aussie Hair Collection Review

I've always wanted to review my Aussie hair collection...  I previously took advantage of a Boots offer but still I might have went a bit overboard considering I had only tried the deep treatment at the time. It was definitely the scent that made me want to repurchase. I absolutely love the smell of Aussie products. Ps. yes I have finished using EVERYTHING!

I will not go into detail of every product individually. I feel they are quite similar anyway. Firstly as I mentioned I really like the scent. It smells delicious (like bubble gum). The scent stays in your hair all day. Sometimes scents make me feel sick after a while but I don't feel this way about Aussie. The smell actually calms me and I like that it lingers.

This product contains jojoba-seed oil which moisturises the scalp to help treat or prevent dandruff. I don't have dandruff but I do have a dry scalp so in the winter time I get some dry flakes. I can say that the products don't aggravate it. Some shampoo dries my scalp even further and thankfully Aussie products doesn't do that.

It tames some of my frizz without it looking greasy, to some extent. I have this problem I haven't been able to solve. Basically I have different hair textures. I have some curls, some wavy, and then some straight strands of hair. Some are very stubbornly thick (I'm asian) and it sticks out and it doesn't matter how much I press it down or how much products I put on my hair it still does its own thing. It's got life on its own. I haven't found a fix for this so if you have any advice please do share! In the cold weather I have static hair (especially after I straighten it) and it controls it in that way.

So in conclusion is it a life changing product? Not really. But for the scent of the product I will repurchase. Have you tried any Aussie Hair products?

Milk Train Cafe London - Ice Cream on a Cloud

There has been images of ice cream, on a cloud, floating around on social media. Intrigued by it, I went to check out the ice cream cafe that sells them in Convent Garden, London.

What you get is an ice cream, covered in good stuff, wrapped in candy floss. I got the Hojicha (roasted green tea) flavoured ice cream. It has popcorn, panda biscuits, oreo cookies, wafer stuck to the ice cream, and it was smothered in chocolate sauce. It is highly calorific but you know what... I regret nothing. It was sooo tasty! Quite messy to eat, the chocolate sauce went everywhere. Mostly on the floor. You can't really see the sauce dripping down because of the cloud, I mean candy floss.

Other ice cream selection: vanilla, matcha, black sesame. I think you can pick your toppings too.

Have you tried out this place, or if you are not from the UK, do you have something similar at home? I would love to know!

Okay so I was looking through my draft posts and I came across this one. I bought this kit about 3 years (wow just realised I've had this blog for almost 6 years - trying to let that sink in right now). I don't have it anymore but I remember how much I liked it so I want to share my thoughts on it with you! It was the first time I tried out any Benefit products and I thought a miniature set like this would be perfect for trying out a selection of new products.
