How to keep long hair healthy

A few weeks ago I made a confession, I haven’t cut my hair in seven years. Now whilst I’ll admit it’s split-end city over here, my hair isn’t actually in a bad condition. To say that it hasn’t been cut in so long, it is still extremely healthy.

A cosy night in with Tessuti

Like most people on the internet, I’m a total hermit. I’d much rather have a cosy night in than a wild night out.

Fresh bedding, fresh PJs and a mystery black box; let’s delve in to find the secrets to a perfect cosy night in!
