Festival Freshen up at the Vanity Van

Dry shampoo is a festival must if you can't get a shower. Luckily for festival goers of Glastonbury 2014, the Vanity Van had arrived, offering styling, manicures and even massages for the masses. I popped along for a Batiste Dry Hair Styling and have to say I was impressed at this portable salons offerings.

Taking over 800 appointments the Vanity Van was a styling haven for those who spent the week at the site battling ALL elements. The DIY Stations were a great idea, letting you wash and style yourself for a freshen up using hair hero Batiste. I had the Batiste Conditioning Mist which contains Argan Oil applied by my stylist, as part of the appointment, which definitely brought my frazzled festival hair back to life. And Tom commented on how lovely my hair smelt. Not bad at a festival!
Now for me a festival is all about music and having fun, and I'm not overly precious about my hair, make up or whether I'm covered in mud. But I have to admit it was nice to get a little pamper whilst having fun, and it was a little calm oasis in a loud, hustling bustling crazy place.
If you are heading the a festival, why not have a little look on the Vanity Van website for more info about where they are heading next.

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!
