The Weekly Top 5 #6

the weekly top 5 no 6_edited-1

Hi Guys!

Happy Sunday! Today I’m mostly to be found tidying, cleaning and planning blog posts for the next few weeks. I’ve gotten pretty behind this week due to not being very well, I’m starting to feel better now though so onwards and upwards! This week I’ve started trying out some Salon Science Proaccelerant Products (from £17.00) including a shampoo, conditioner and treatment. These products are formulated with AnaGain, an Organic Pea Sprout extract that is rich in restorative proteins, starch and fibres. These rebalancing phytonutrients combined with caffeine agents stimulate blood circulation to help encourage the growth of hair at the root. The advanced formulation helps strengthen, add volume, moisturise and protect, making hair more resistant to everyday damage. These products are supped to give denser, thicker, fuller hair in 3 months, so fingers crossed they’ll work. I’ll have a full review done in three months time!

I’ve also found myself reaching for my Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Balm Perfector (£18.00) this week. I can’t get enough of Clarins’ products at the moment but this has definitely got the most use since it arrived. I frequently suffer with dry lips so this tinted balm has been fantastic to help heal as well as giving a tint of colour.

I also may have treated myself to some gorgeous new shoes from Schuh, as I managed to ruin my previous favourite shoes a few weeks ago in the boggy mud at Redgrave Fen. I bought those ones a couple of years ago so I was pretty upset that they’re not available any more. Then when browsing the Schuh site I noticed the shoes are still on sale, but with a different pattern. Cue new summer shoes, yay!

I also ordered a few vest tops (which I pretty much live in) as well as lightweight summer cardigans and accessories from H&M. I actually love H&M for jewellery and I picked up these unsupposing Jelly Bracelets with my order. I remember wearing these in the early 90’s but apart from taking me back to my youth, I’ve found myself constantly twisting and knotting and playing with them. I think this helps relieve my anxiety.

I’m still watching Skins on Netflix (and I’m up to season 4) but I’ve also been browsing Youtube for new music and came across FKA Twigs. This girl really is something special, her music and videos are both complex and mesmerising. If you’ve heard her music you’ll know what I mean when I say it’s very ‘marmite’ – you’ll either love it or you’ll just not get it. Try watching and listening to Two Weeks, Papi Pacify and How’s That with headphones on. Let me know what you think.

I also thought I’d include an overview of my posts from the last week in case you missed anything…

Dirty Thirty and OOTD

Posted on February 24, 2013

Yesterday I went to Biddy’s Tea Room  with some friends for a surprise gathering of afternoon tea for my good friend Brookie’s 30th birthday!

Biddy’s is a beautiful vintage themed tea room in the centre of Norwich, they sell fabulous homemade cakes, scones and sandwiches. You can even have a mad hatters tea party and Biddy’s will provide you with vintage hats to dress up in!

Apart from the cake (of course) my favourite thing was the Norfolk ham, brie and chilli jam sandwiches, it was a taste sensation! 😀

We then took Claire for a look round the shops, while two of the others crept back to her house to decorate it before we came back 🙂

I bought these lovely Aztec Mocassin Flats from Schuh for £28

So I decided to wear it for our night out (with Lime Crime Centrifuchsia Lipstick and a vintage necklace)

We hit the town in our party outfits, sporting Dame Edna style wacky shades, we couldn’t see a thing and drank way too much, it was a great night!!
