I got a wonderful little hand and arm massage using the new body yoghurt, got to make my own personalised body butter sticker and got the most amazing makeover. The new skincare range…

Brunette to RedHead with Schwarzkopf Live Real Red

Brunette to RedHead with Schwarzkopf Live Real Red

Over the years, I’ve been a brunette, a blonde and a redhead. My hair has become an utter mess due to constant experimentation with it, and I’ve been hating it for awhile now. I was trying to grow my natural hair colour out, in the hopes that I would have long, healthy, natural hair in time for my graduation.

Therefore a rose scented perfume is perfect as the first perfume to be released by Marks and Spencer for their ‘Rosie for Autograph’ collection…     (image source) “As with my lingerie collection, I was drawn to the elegance and simplicity of the centifolia rose used in the fragrance. A rare, vintage style flower, it really encapsulates what this fragrance is about to me – a fresh yet mysterious scent, which feels luxurious and sexy”  Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. I have always been a big fan of Rosie…
