Barratts Flatform Sandals

Image
  A few weeks ago, after moaning about my very small shoe collection on Twitter, I was contacted by Barratts to pick a pair of shoes off their site to win for free. After to looking through their site for hours I finally decided on these babies. I am finally jumping on the flatform band wagon, perhaps about a year late but it's better late than never.   These are made from a sort of suede-y material with metal buckles. They are electric blue and have a white sole which I was worried might look a bit weird but it actually doesn't. I wore them to go to my cousin's 18th birthday and I took the risk to wear them in properly when I was shopping in Chester and they are actually so comfortable. I am terrible at walking in heels bit because these are flatforms they are so easy to walk in, apart from the odd ankle wobble when on uneven ground (staples car park I am talking to you!) The straps do tend to rub a little around the back but this can easily be fixed wi

REVIEW: Herbal Essences hair mask for dry/damaged hair

Image
Over the past few years I have come to realise that I don't care for my hair as much as I should do. I went through a phase of dying it, I hate getting it cut  (gross I know) and I rarely use heat protection spray. This has left my hair a bit drier than I would like so I opted for Herbal Essences beautiful ends split end protection intensive mask for dry/damaged hair. Obviously it doesn't get rid of your split ends but it sure does make them softer and less visible. It is really easy to use. You apply it all over your hair focusing on mainly the mid-lengths and tips and then leave it for up to 5 minutes to work it's magic. Then wash it off. It's as simple as that. The only issue is that you can only use it once per week so it doesn't leave you hair feeling luxuriously soft for the rest of the week. However this may be different if you use the shampoo and condition to go with it which I don't. As for the smell, it's supposed to smell that ras

MOSI

Today I visited the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Manchester with my sixth form. Unlike the museums that I am used to going to, MOSI focussed on how things are made/work and the development of technology over time. In all honesty, it wasn't the best museum ever but it wasn't completely dull - the children's section was particularly fun! It was also absolutely freezing and I wasn't really dressed for cold. Here are a few snaps I took whilst wondering round.  believe it or not this is one of the first ever computers earthquake maker in the kid's section Congratulations if you made it this far! I understand that museums aren't everybody's cup of tea but to be honest, I love them.  Tumblr | Twitter | Questions | Pinterest
