Bath & Bloody Marys

I got to spend a bit of my time with my beautiful sister Crystal at the weekend. A flyby visit to the West Country to do some bridal hair meant I got the opportunity to enjoy a sunny day in Bath. The family home is about 25 minutes away from the city, so over the years I've spent many a weekend there. It's changed loads, but still retained the beautiful buildings, and the bustling, vibrant feel that brings thousands to visit.
We hit Wagamamas for lunch, and I shockingly went for something different from my usual Katsu Curry. There's a new dish in town. The Seafood Broth. A bowl full of flavour, I definitely recommend. Yum.
Then it was shopping, Primark has just opened in the high street, which will be, no doubt a hit with students living in the City. I picked up a printed summer dress, and then hit H&M for a few more 'essentials' And after shopping, it's only right you relax with a drink. I'd never been in Hall and Woodhouse before, but I'm SO glad Crystal recommended. It's amazing! We sat on the roof terrace for a pigeon-eye-view of Bath and I had a very good Bloody Mary. They've become something of an addiction of late! I want to go back for dinner and have already told Tom all about the interior. Gorgeously done.
So that was the weekend, I'm back at home and with more time on my hands as I've now finished doing pub shifts. The 60 hour weeks were definitely stopping me from planning adventures and actually enjoying the house. Stay tuned for more! I have a craft project update and of course hair ramblings!

Fantastic Holiday Haircare

Going on holiday you have to make a little more of a concious decision to make sure you look after your hair. The sun and swimming can play havoc with colour and the condition of your locks. Fantastic Hairdresser Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner (both £11.99) contain Avocado and Passion Flower Oils meaning it'll keep hair looking healthy and shiny.
I've been using both as part of my haircare and after coming back from Ibiza I was worried the combination of sun and the pool/sea would have left my hair looking a bit dull. But luckily I've got hair that whilst in need of a cut and colour freshen looks pretty good.
Fragrance wise, both the shampoo and conditioner are fresh and clean, you get a good size bottle and as the products don't contain Parabens or Sulphates you aren't using any nasty chemicals to get good looking hair. Other ranges are available to tailor your regime to your hair needs.
