A couple of weeks ago, before my holiday this summer, I had my hair dyed and so in preparation for my holiday I decided to pop out and purchase some hair products for coloured hair.
Alongside some Aussie Shampoo and Conditioner, I also picked this up.
This is Aussie's Coloured Hair Protection and Shine Serum.
The directions for use says that it can be applied to wet or dry hair.
So, after it'd been washed, I put a small amount in the palm of my hands and spread it evenly throughout my hair everyday.
I tried to keep away from my roots as my hair tends to get greasy easily as it's quite oily at the base.
But, I found that this stuff works wonders.
In previous years, after dying my hair I've only ever really used colour protection shampoo and conditioner, but not really cared for it after that. This usually lead to damaged hair.
However, this year I've been able to maintain a nice texture to my hair whilst using this serum. Also, I've noticed how much healthier it is compared to before!
I definitely recommend this product to anyone with coloured hair that uses heated appliances (such as your hair dryer, straighteners or curlers) often and/or anyone who is exposed to the blazing sun on a daily basis.
Living in Britain, the sun isn't really a major concern of mine but using heated appliances is.
I know that I'll continue to use this product as it gives the best possible results

After watching the Kardashian's visit Bora Bora, I couldn't help but wish to visit this beautiful island
It just seems so peaceful and tranquil.
The water looks really fresh and pure, the shack looks incredible and it's so secluded.
It'd be the perfect relaxing get away, if it wasn't so expensive or so far away!

My birthday suit!

As my eighteenth birthday approaches, I can't help but search for the perfect outfit to wear for my party.
And, I think I've found a winner...

I absolutely love this dress.
I found it on Asos before I went on holiday but I didn't have enough money to buy it for my holidays and so I'm thinking it'd be great for my birthday party!
The only slight problem is, my birthday's in November so there is a potential that I could freeze, but if I froze wearing that I wouldn't mind!!
Despite it being in November, I would be inside all night so that wouldn't be as much of a problem.
However, I'm too not sure yet.
What do you guys think?

My future wedding dress!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have a slight obsession with weddings!
Two years ago I stumbled across the Disney Wedding dress collection and, as I curious female, I decided to take a peek at them.
Upon browsing through the selections, one particular dress caught my eye and I couldn't help but fall in love... With a dress - yes, I'm that kind of girl!
This is Cinderella from the 2011 collection.
Honestly, from the moment I saw it, I knew I wanted that one.
It's perfect.
The lack of precise detail speaks volumes.
I particularly love the wrap effect. 
Unfortunately, being a teenager means that I have a long time to wait before my special day. But, I cannot wait.
I hope that this dress is still available when the time comes because it's so me!

A keen writer...

As a keen writer, I've always wanted to write a whole fictional story.
I put emphasis on the world 'whole' as I have tried to write before but I can never make myself actually finish the story.
Usually, I think of a great idea (well, what I think is a great idea anyway!!) and I plan it to a certain extent. After that, I begin the writing process.
As a full time student, I can only really write at weekends once I've completed all of my homework and spent some time relaxing and socialising.
I realise that this leaves very little time and I'm probably working on a stressed out mind which definitely can't be good. I already know that much.
After a couple of weeks, sometimes days, I become terribly bored and can't bring myself to write anymore good material. It turns into a truly awful story and I can't bring myself to actually finish it.
It's like I've run out of creative ideas for the story line and so I doubt my writing and give up. I end up losing all of the motivation I began with and just delete the story I started writing. 

This habit is so annoying to me. I want to be able to write a whole story, edit it and maybe even publish it online for readers to enjoy. So, I was wondering if anyone had any advice?
I don't know whether I need to make a more detailed plan to start with?
And possibly create a timetable for writing, in between school work and relaxing.
Or write more continuously, rather than just at the weekends and in limited periods of time.
If anybody does have any advice, I'd be forever grateful!
