Currently Loving Hair Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

I've recently treated myself a new pair of curling tongs after having my old pair for years. I decided to go with the GHD soft curling tong and it's pretty amazing. I'm currently using the best products to help keep my hair looking super smooth and shiny and I wanted you all to see them!

First up is the Tigi S Factor shampoo and conditioner- as you all know I love this brand anyway so it was a no brainer that it would find its way into this post. I always find that it cleans my hair perfectly and leaves it feeling so soft but without being fluffy and fly away. A small amount goes a long way, I've had these sitting in my shower for a good month or so and they are still going strong. The scent isn't over powering which is fab and the conditioner is lovely and thick but easy enough to apply and wash out.

Next is a hair oil from Josh Wood that I received in my Marks & Spencer advent calendar. I've never been a fan of oils for hair or body I hate the greasy feeling and it never seems to sink in no matter what I do, but the Josh Wood hair oil is something else! I love using a small amount from the applicator (once or twice a week) and adding it to the ends of my hair. It really helps to style my hair and is by far the only product that will make my hair feel truly healthy after use.  

Finally is my foldable travel Wet Brush that my sister bought me for Christmas and that I use most days and obviously its great for throwing in my bag when I go away as its' so small and compact. The Wet Brush is the only brand of my brush I use now- I have an original one in my drawer too. The bristles are really soft and never drag through my hair and I love that even on their travel version it has a handle, I couldn't get my head around not having one on previous branded brushes.

What are your favourite hair care products? Make sure you share them with me in the comments or tweet me @steaders83.

Till next time,

Matalan Curvy Girl OOTD 21!

Hello My Lovelies

Just a short couple of years ago I wouldn't of worn a denim skirt not alone felt comfortable in one but jump to March 2017 after loosing some weight and I'm in that denim skirt!

My whole outfit comes from the super affordable Matalan! Matalan has always been one of my favourite shops to pick clothes up no matter what size I have or may be as they always have something that will fit my shape.

My skirt is such a great length especially for someone like me that has bigger thighs and skirts can tend to ride up. The colour is also a great darker denim which is super flattering! My top isn't one I would normally go for but when my sister picked it up I knew it would go perfectly with the skirt- I love the stripes and ruffles.
I then wore black leggings and chunky heeled boots from Sainsbury's which I seem to be wearing with everything at the moment!

Finally I added my new Ray Ban's that I picked up on holiday last October and have been sitting in my drawer patiently waiting to be worn. I love the vintage vibe style of these glasses and the colour way.

I can't wait to pop back to Matalan soon to pick up a few Spring items! Have you bought anything from Matalan recently? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @steaders83

Till next time,

What I ate in Iceland: Junk Food Favourites!

Hello My Lovelies

Iceland was amazing and so was the food, most of the things I'm showing you in this post is junk but oh my gosh was it good junk! All recommended before we travelled by other visitors of Reykjavik so well worth the research and finding the location of the delicacies.

I had seen a photo of Reykjavik chip's on Instagram and I knew as soon as I saw them that I was going to try them- I am literally the world's biggest potato fan, I'll eat them in all of their forms with chips being my ultimate favourite and Reykjavik chips didn't let me down. Here you can choose from many different sauces from chives and pickle sauce to traditional ketchup. We sat in their warm trendy little restaurant and washed them down with plenty of Pepsi.

One night we had to return to Svarta Kaffid for soup in a bread bowl, we had visited on our last time in Iceland and it was high on our list when we returned last month. This restaurant only sells soup in a bread bowl and drinks- you can choose between a meat or vegetarian option and wow does it fill you up. I have to admit I was defeated before I could even eat half of the bread bowl.

Again Instagram was behind us trying to find and devour these yummy little doughnuts which were picked up from a local bakery in the city. Both delicious and pretty to look at!

Finally this one took a bit of searching the streets of Reykjavik to find but was 100% worth it. This hot dog stand always has a long queue with people from all over the world waiting to taste the crispy onions and ketchup/mustard mix. It's also well known for hosting Bill Clinton many years ago. On the day we had the hot dog's it was super windy and snowy so was a perfect way to warm us up as we explored.

And finally something I didn't fancy eating...dried fish!!!

Have you been to Iceland? What did you love to eat?! Let me know in the comments or tweet me @steaders83
