For the past couple of months I have been suffering with bad hair days/weeks. It seems endless – I have laid off the straightening (my GHD’s look lonely!) and have not chemically straightened my hair for well over a year now. Today after a minor session at the gym I figured I might as well wet the locks and see what the result would be – bush central or curl heaven. Not quite making it to heaving territory yet my hair as usual had a mind of its own. The good news is that it is far from bush central and with the right ingredients ‘things can only get better’!!!
After reading Problems of Curly Girl (new and up and coming site – check it out!) I decided it was time dig out some products and get to work!
This set of products are just a few of the items I picked up at the Vitality Show. The bottle to the far right is what I am using at the moment for every day purposes however in the next couple days I will be breaking open the rest. They all smell divine which is a little unusual for some hair products and the Cure Plus is very light on my hair – so far so good!
Not really one to show my face on camera (on here anyway!) I thought I would share my curls at least! From what they were (not even a HOT mess just a MESS!) to now I am proud to say I am loving the soft texture from root to tip.
Excusing my chin! This to me looks like an advert for something reminiscent of Soul Glo from Coming to America – fear not though Ladies and Gentlemen my hair was just damp!!
Just to control the front and get it out of my eyes – tied back and dry. Actual feels so good that there is a song for it! Well three songs! Can you guess? If not well you will see them below:
And finally . . .
This song never fails to get me in a good mood and fits for how I feel about my hair right about now!
Thanks to the lovelies at Green People I was lucky enough to get two press tickets to this lovely show. With list full of wonderful brands and even an appearance from what I can now say delightful Amy Childs myself and Catherine from Vintage Frills were ready and raring to go.
From fitness to fashion with food and wine this show was utterly packed to the rafters. The only issue was the bad lighting – a bad yellow hue shone above the stalls below. Not only did we have to use constant camera flashes but on inspection of products on various stalls extra lighting was needed to get a true reflection of tones.
With a variety of beautiful displays under the spotlight the choice was practically endless however a couple did shine brighter than the rest. Not only were the ones with fancy displays worth watching but others that were not so grand really made an impression.
Now on some level this lighting can be seen as something beautiful which in a way it is however with the point that it destroyed my pictures the beauty is somewhat camouflaged.
Onto the stalls:
See the touch of yellow!
The wallpaper that was put up especially for this event is just delightful. Although the stall was on the smaller side the lovely ladies did not need much more room as it would have looked scarce.
These bad girls look absolutely delightful – along with everything else from The Vintage Cosmetic Company the packaging is feminine, vintage and just beautiful. How can you go wrong with powder pink and cutesy.
Caroline and Clare are the two lovely ladies that were representing The Vintage Cosmetic Company on this specific day of the show and they were just delightful.
This is not all I have to say about the great show put on at Earls Court 2 so keep your eyes peeled.
