My Favourite Hair Products

So today I decided to do a post that I haven't really done before. A hair post. But before I share that with you I would like to apologise that I have been too busy to post lately. Anyway today I am sharing with you my favourite hair care products. I warn you, they might not be the best products there is out there and I don't have a shampoo in there either. 
Tresemme Keratin Smoothe Conditioner - £4.99
I really love this conditioner because it just leaves my hair soft and silky smoothe. It doesn't have a strong scent which is good because there is nothing worse than having a horrible smelling conditioner. A great all round conditioner!

Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance leave-in conditioner - (couldn't find it online)
This is seriously amazing stuff. It smells amazing and it just is delightful. It leaves your hair nice and soft and de-frizzes it amazingly. It just works wonders for my lion's mane.

Loreal Elenett Satin Hairspray - £4.20 for 200ml
I've got to be honest here, I don't use hairspray all that often. But when I do I use this stuff. It just holds my hair nicely and doesn't make it feel crispy (which is a pet hate for me). A great all-round hairspray.

Dove Style+Care  Dry Shampoo - £4.59
I've mentioned this before and I've told you all the great stuff it does (completely clear, works effectively, volumises) so I won't bore you with another in depth review. I've also recently discovered that it smells really quite good as far as dry shampoos go as well.

Tresemme Heat Defence Styling Spray - £5.25
I love this spray because some of the previous heat protectors have not held my heat styling whereas this one does. It also smells great and just works wonders.

Spring Essentials: Candles

As you all probably know, I have a little obsession with candles. I absolutely love them. So i thought why not share with you some of my favourite spring candles. I will be creating a short series of my 'spring essentials', even though they aren't necessarily essentials. Anyway, onto my favourite spring candles!
Yankee Candle Sicilian Lemon (Medium Jar) - £16.99
This candle smells as the name says, lemon. It smells so fresh and clean and it is just perfect for spring because it is so refreshing. I just absolutely love this.

Yankee Candle River Valley (Small Jar) - £8.39
This again smells lovely and fresh and clean and all that jazz, but to me, honestly, it smells like Lynx. Yes you read that correctly, it smells like the men's body spray. It might not be to everyone's taste but I think that it's gorgeous.

Yankee Candle Fresh Cut Roses (Large Jar) - £19.99
I have a small obsession with rose-scented things and this is one of my favourites. It is just perfect for spring because it has the gorgeous floral scent. It doesn't smell like a artificial rose or too rosey if that makes sense. It's just a well-balanced rose scent.

Yankee Candle Loves Me Loves Me Not (Sampler) - £1.80
I am seriously in absolute love with this one. It smells exactly like daisy flowers and is just complete perfection. It just, to me, is the perfect spring scent and reminds me of making daisy chains (attempting but failing) when I was younger.

Top 5 Under £5 - Spring Nail Polishes

Its finally showing signs of coming into spring(hooray!), which means colours need to be changed from winter shades to brighter spring shades. So, this brings me to showing you my top 5 favourite spring nail polishes for a price of under £5. Okay, enough babbling; here are the nail polishes.

Maybelinne Color Show in '342 Coral Craze' and '118 Urban Coral' - £2.99
If you have been reading my posts for a while, you'll know that I absolutely love these nail polishes and have done since the day they came out. They are perfectly shiny and they dry really quite quickly. I really just love the formula of these and I absolutely love the colour!

Sinful Colors in 'Cinderella' - £1.99
I am reasonably new to the brand 'Sinful Colors' and this is the only one of their products that I own, but I have heard great things about their products and so far I'm quite pleased by them. Not that you can see it in this picture, but this polish has little glitter flecks through it which make it look absolutely beautiful. The colour is perfectly suited to it's name because it creates such an amazing 'Cinderella dress' colour. The formula is quite good for the price although it's a little thin, but I can deal with that, especially for £2.

(Left) Rimmel Salon Pro in '313 Cocktail Passion' - £4.49
(Right) Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate in '701 Jazz Funk' - £4.49
I also love these nail polished. They are really good quality and have amazing shine. These colours especially are just gorgeous and I absolutely lovely.

Rimmel Space Dust in '003 Aurora' - £3.99
This isn't necessarily what I would class as a 'spring colour' but it might be what some of you guys class as one. Nevertheless, I think this is a beautiful colour and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I've done a review of this product here so I won't bore you with another short review. 

Rimmel Cocktail Colour in '140 Hawaiian Punch' - £3.99
Here is yet another Rimmel nail product in this post. I think this colour is great for spring and summer and it really just makes your nails pop. Absolutely beautiful colour and as usual Rimmel, a great, shiny, pigmented colour.

February Favourites 2014!

I have to admit, I haven't really been trying many new products this month so I don't really have very exciting favourites (sorry). Anyway, here are a few of the things that I have really been liking this month.

Natural Collection Nail Colour - £1.89
I bought this quite a while back and recently found it again in my nail polish box. I really love this as a top coat because it gives your nails such a gorgeous shine. It also stops your nails from chipping pretty decently so it's just all around a good product especially for under £2!

Soap and Glory Mist You Madly body spray - £3.50
I have been wearing this scent every day to school because it just smells amazing. The scent is floral but not too overpowering and it's just perfect for everyday wear. The only down side to this is that it doesn't last all that long but I don't really mind because I can just top it up.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - £9.99
I really like the way that this brush makes my foundation looks. There has been so many reviews and raves about this and I can understand why. The brushes last well, they blend nicely, and they are just amazing.

The Body Shop Wild Rose Targeted Hand Oil - £7.00
I mainly use this product for the scent rather than the moisturising qualities. It smells amazing and it really has helped with my cold, damaged winter hands so that's definitely a bonus. 

Topshop Plain Band Midi Rings - £6.50
I have loved midi rings since the get-go of the trend. I just think that they look so beautiful and these ones are especially my favourites. Unlike some from other stores, these don't turn your finger green which is great and they just fit my fingers perfectly. These ones by Freedom at Topshop come in silver, gold and rose gold.  I absolutely adore these (especially the rose gold one).
