Haircare: Aussie Dual Personality Serum

I love hair serums, honestly I think they are amazing. Especially for my hair type (which I'd call a bit mad and curly, and it gets dry at the ends) they are fantastic and because of this I like to try new ones out. I've loved my Argan Oil and I still do use it but I wanted something especially for coloured hair. Colouring your hair is super damaging as you'll probably already know and so it's important to treat your hair extra nicely if you're going to be shoving chemicals onto it every few weeks/months. 

I must say, usually Aussie products and my hair don't get on. I used their shampoos and conditioner for a while and my hair was impossible. I ended up giving it to my mum who quite liked it. I know so many people who are fans of this brand I decided that I'd give it another go with something else. I'm really glad I did!

A couple of pumps, run through my hair when it's wet and it's so much easier to brush and detangle and then it drys without nearly as much frizz as without. I have a couple of other products I use too but I've used this alone many times and I love it. It does make my hair shine and it's hard to tell how much it helps protect my coloured hair but from what I can tell it is great. It smells nice too, which I presume is the Australian Jojoba Seed Oil. 

The final thing I love about this product is that it can be used on wet or dry hair. That was my main criteria when looking for a serum. I like to be able to carry one serum that does everything.

OOTDs - Birthday House Parties!!

This was a couple of weeks ago but I loved this outfit as it contrasts with what I usually wear. Unless it's a plain black dress I can't remember the last time I wore monochrome but I picked up these leggings in the New Look sale and I borrowed the top from my housemate (it's from River Island). I even dug out my only pair of heels (black wedges). Unfortunately I totally didn't decide to wear them till after the photos! You can tell Emilie was in hers though from the high camera angle - love it :)
The necklace is also a sale find - Accessorize, it's super pretty and girly.
