3 audio books that will help you think bigger

Remember that annoying Youtube ad by Tai Lopez? The one where he welcomed you to his garage to show off his Lamborghini and bookshelf? Well, it pains me to say it but he had a great point. Knowledge is power. A book, whether it’s about mindfulness or colouring, has the power to transform your world.

Kallos Cosmetics LAB35 review – My hair holy grail

Lab35 Hair milk, signature conditioner and sulfate free shampoo

I used to think ‘salon quality hair’ at home was a total myth. It sounds like something they just say on the adverts, doesn’t it? In the search for Disney Princess-esque hair finding the right products can be a minefield. After all, the advice often contradicts itself. “Keep it simple and don’t weigh your hair down“… but it’s apparently also essential that we need a foam wash, mask, leave-in conditioner, heat protection spray, texture spray, hairspray and a myriad of other gunk.

What a load of tosh! Finding what’s right for your hair can be a long and tiresome process, so I thought I’d share my three holy grail products from Kallos Cosmetics.

Do you really need a new season makeover?

Do you like my yellow puffer jacket? I look and feel like a chunky little minion when I wear this jacket.

In the run up to Autumn/Winter I’ve been trying to build a cosy wardrobe that’s a little more mature. Think muted tones, rich layers and of course plenty of turtle necks. However, as you can see dressing mature isn’t really ‘my thing’.

I went to Speed Friending to find my new BFF

Hey Siri, how do I make friends in my 20’s without doing coke?

Your early twenties are pretty tricky to navigate. You reach a point when you’ve lost touch with childhood friends, uni pals have moved back to their hometowns and maybe you’ve found yourself bouncing around grad jobs desperate for stability. Whatever your predicament, it can be hard to bounce back from the inevitable loneliness.

Full disclaimer, I’m not totally alone. I hang out with my boyfriend on weekends and I have 2 other friends in the city that I see every few weeks. So three is a good total, but I long for the days when I’d hang around with a gaggle of girls; all four of us sharing a house with an open door policy. Those girls? We’re lucky if we see each other a handful of times a year.

But apparently speed friending is the cure to loneliness in your 20s.

The Lush Cosmetics jelly face masks, worth the hype?

I have a theory that you’re always taking a little bit of a risk when buying a new product from Lush Cosmetics on the launch date. It seems as if the first batch is always a little beta test for the first wave of customers, a product they’ve perfected in-house but might not stand up to public opinion. That’s why products always seem a bit better a month or so after they first arrived in stores. Some formulas don’t need tweaking, some do – That’s my theory anyway!

When I first heard about Lush’s jelly face masks the curiosity got the best of me. I’m a huge fan of their fresh masks, so a solid alternative that doesn’t expire quickly did seem appealing. I couldn’t wait for another blogger to review them. I had to try them even though I knew there was a chance I would possibly be a guinea pig.
