V Fest weekend

Hey Guys, 

Last weekend I headed off, with my best friend to V Fest, which was absolutely amazing. Being at a festival is just fun in general but being able to see some of my favourite artists, such as Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, Bastille and the Kaiser Chiefs was just incredible.
Here are a few photos from the weekend. 

Have you been to any festivals this year? If so, I hope you had an amazing time like I did.

Favourite Festival outfit

Hey guys,

I'm off to V-fest soon, so I thought I would share with you my favourite look so far that I have been planning.

Top - Topshop
Trousers - Next
Shoes - Topshop
Sunglasses - Topshop (can't find them online, sorry)
Hat - Topshop (one similar)

I love this look, its so comfy, which is going to be perfect for a festival. I think the mirrored aviators make everything super fun! Lets hope it doesn't rain and I get to wear the sandals with this look.

Have you been to any festivals this summer?

Summer hair care


                                                                      Hey guys,

As it's the summer, and if you are living in England you will know it's hotter than usual, which is why I want to share with you some products on keeping your hair protected from the sun.
The UV rays in the sun can really damage your hair, not to mention burn your scalp. (trust me I know).

Firstly I was drawn to the ORGANIX shampoo and conditioner. Doesn't the packaging look so good, in all honesty this was half the reason I picked them up. However they work so well on my hair, its left feeling so soft. They have argan and macadamia oil in, which is great for nourishing dry or damaged hair.

The Lee Stafford moisture injection conditioner is amazing especially to add extra nourishment to your hair in between washes. It's a little more pricey at £8.99 but I love it, I would definitely re purchase. 

The final two products are both from Mark hill, the first is from his holiday hair collection, which is specifically designed to protect your hair against the sun. You just spritz this on to your hair and scalp and it protects your hair from drying out and your scalp from burning. 
Finally I have been using Mark hills defrizz-ilicious anti humidity spray. Which if you watch the video you will quickly realise I cannot successfully say the word defrizz-ilicious (how embarrassing!) This one is great, if you are like me and are prone to frizzy hair, I always find its worse in humid conditions. A few sprays of this and you will be left with controllable and frizz free hair. What more could you ask for. 

If you haven't noticed I'm new to youtube, so its a totally new learning curve, but hopefully I will get the hang of it. I hope you enjoy the video, if you also have youtube I would love to know what your pages are, so I can take a look.

Going colour crazy

Hey guys, 

So I thought I would step into the unknown and dye my hair. I can't say its permanent though. Instead I thought I would give hair chalk a go. I bought a range on colours from Urban Outfitters, which you can get in store. (unfortunately they are sold out online).

I cannot say it was the easiest of applications to get onto my hair, there was ALOT of mess. When I say alot I really do mean it. My sink became a beautiful lilic colour, whilst the wall tiles became a wonderful speckled pattern. (I kid you not!). However after much cleaning up, I have to say I love it. This would be so perfect for festivals, to liven things up a little. Not to mention hair chalks wash out so so easily, so its perfect if you really don't want the commitment.

My top tips for putting the chalk on your hair (especially if it's long hair you have)

- Make sure your hair is wet, but not dripping wet
- Comb it through so there are no knots
- Run the chalk through in sections, start with small underneath layers first
- Focus on the ends of your hair, which will give it an ombré look, if thats what you wish for. 
- Clean up before anyone suspects any sort of colour explosion happened in the bathroom.
I've never had a crazy colour in my hair before, and I absolutely love it, I think i'm going to experiment with some more colours as well. 

If you use hair chalks, or have dyed your hair a wonderful colour, then tweet me your photos, I would love to see. @jessicalaar
