Primark Haul October 2015

I managed to get into Primark before their Christmas stuff totally took over the store and bought myself some Autumn essentials. I think I was quite well behaved and didn't buy too much stuff. This whole packing and moving process has made me realise how much clothes I own and trying to fit it all into a space I'll have to share with my boyfriend is going to be quite a task. My own dressing room seems like the most obvious solution. 

Tartan Scarf

Mixed Metal Statement Necklace

Grey Fringe Cape 

Wrap Front Blouse

Knot Front Grey Dress


Frozen Olaf Slippers

Novelty Fruit Shaped Pegs

Has your local Primark gone Christmas crazy yet? What colour are you loving for A/W?

Hello October

The last few weeks have been busy and I'm so looking forward to the new month ahead. It's finally moving month - we've waited all year to buy a house and it's getting closer. It breaks my heart that my Granny isn't going to get the chance to see it but to see her excitement when we last spoke about all the plans is lovely to remember.

1. My brother and his girlfriend came up to visit, unfortunately it wasn't under happy circumstances. We went out for dinner while they were up and I had my favourite goats cheese. So delicious! No one else in my family like goats cheese, it's a love it or hate it I guess.

2. I'm back to being a student this year. I'm doing a postgraduate course in teaching dance and I think it's going to take a lot to get back into essay writing. It's only a part-time course that will be finished in February but the best bit is definitely the prospect of getting a student card again.

3. The perks of the course is staying in a hotel and getting a full breakfast made for me in the morning. I totally worked it off after 4 hours of dancing.

4. Why are Apple cables so inadequate!?

5. First selection box of the year. Taking a trip to B&M caused the little kid in me to come out.

6. I love my new Olaf slippers! Well done Primark, these are perfect.

7. Last week was hectic at work with parents' evenings on Wednesday and Thursday. After speaking for 3 hours straight I could have done with a glass of wine but I settled for a choc dip. 

8. I popped into New Look after my course and couldn't resist this blazer from New Look. It was in the sale for only £10 and even though the colours are very Spring/Summer it's good for work I'll probably wear it anyway.

9. Just when I was needing something to cheer me up I got a message saying I'd won a hamper in a raffle. It's a huge bundle of bakery goodies and it's going to be perfect for bribing people to help us in our new house. Yum yum.

What are you looking forward to in October?

TIGI Catwalk Headshot Conditioner Review

Towards the end of last month I finished up my conditioner and realised I had no other tubs or bottles in my huge stash of beauty products. What better time to try out a new product? Especially a giant one at a reduced price on Hairtrade. It shares promises of transforming frizzy, dull hair into smooth, straight styles. It's infused with lychee and bamboo, honeysuckle and dragon fruit to add shine, softness and control fly-aways. It's aimed at chemically treated hair just like mine and is from a brand I love and trust so I was hoping for big things.

It's definitely a conditioner that offers some real TLC. Since the first use my hair feels stronger in the shower and while it's drying. My hair feels softer and less knotty when I pull the hair turban towel off my head. In fact, my Tangle Teezer barely has a task on it's hands!
As for the scent, I'm used to the sweet scents of TIGI products and this one is no different. This smells like a minty sweetie. I think they must have been inspired by Rock as it smells like the seaside treat. 

As a reconstructive hair product it's softening but also works towards mending split ends and reducing breakages. I've not noticed such huge results but I'm looking forward to my hair feeling more and more repaired, wash after wash.
