Happy Hair Days

I’m a massive fan of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) and Paraben free Shampoos and Conditioners. I have a love/hate relationship with my hair and scalp! But both seem to behave so much more when I go for more natural products.

I’ve seen the Happy Hair Days range in both Boots and my local Sainsbury’s for sometime but haven’t really got around to picking any up till recently. I’d not really heard much about the range and have actually even struggled to find a website. But despite this when I saw that they were on offer in Sainsbury’s (half price so only £2 instead of the usual £4) I thought I’d just give it a go.

Given my naturally frizzy, dry Hair I thought the Smoothing range looked the best. Also it looked as though it might smell the best – it’s Blueberry & Pear, whilst the Moisturising in Pomegranate & Ginger and the Colour Care is Marshmallow & Coconut.
So I’ve used the Shampoo and Conditioner a few times now and I have to say I’m loving them. Definitely the best SLS free shampoo I’ve used so far. My hair is much less frizzy (I don’t kid myself – there isn’t a product out there that can get rid of all my frizz!) and the conditioner has left my hair feeling silky soft. I would go as far as to say that the conditioner is one of the best I’ve tried regardless of it being SLS and Paraben Free.

MUA Juicy

Today's post is on MUA Juicy.
MUA lipsticks are a bargain price if a £1 so well worth a look. The quality of MUA products always surprises me, there blushes and eyeshadow palettes are staples for me now.

First off the colour is gorgeous its pigmented yet a sheer pastel peach/pink. As soon as I did a swatch on my hand I had to have it. I am not always a fan of bright lipstick (I do not like my lips) but this had the bright but not too bright and sheer effect I love.

But I am not a fan of the consistency on my lips you need perfectly soft lips to wear this and I just don't. So it ends up sitting on my dry patches which is annoying. So as I love the colour I have been applying over lip balm which seems to do the trick.

I need to go and take a look at MUA again as there as some more items I would love to try like the Undressed palette (dupe for UD Naked palette), New Cream Blusher, their new nail polish shades and BB Cream.

Do you have a favourite shade or product from MUA?

We have previously posted on some other items from MUA here.

You can buy MUA cosmetics online or at selected superdrugs stores.

A Little Update

So as you've all probably noticed that's not been many posts over the last few months. It's not that either of us having wanted to post or that we've lost any inspiration etc, it's just that life has well and truly got in the way for us both.

First off I moved at the end of August! Now many of you would know that 12 months ago I moved back to North Wales and had actually been living with my mum and started looking for our own place. Well we've know got our new home. Its absolutely perfect but needed a lot of things doing and even after 6 weeks , there's still a few bits we need to do. But it's reached a point where it's only little things a d some rooms are completely finished. It's actually my plan to get a few images up over the weekend. Need a bit of daylight and it's now dark when I get home!
Now K's been having a whole different sort of housing nightmare! I'm not going to say much more as I'm not really sure how much she wants to put up on here as the issues not resolved just yet but looks like its now moving in the right direction.
Anyway we just wanted to apologise for the lack of posting and hopefully we can get back into a normal routine!
Thanks to everyone for sticking with us.
Lx and Kx
