In this blog post I am going to share some advice on how to dry your hair so that your strands are protected and healthy. I am also sharing a portable hair dryer, Panasonic are changing the game with!


I uploaded a blog post titled 'Perfume, You're Doing It All Wrong' which a lot of you seemed to love, so I hope you enjoy the advice in this blog post too.

So drying your hair is pretty simple right? Well yeah it's super easy to do but with some tips and tricks you can ensure that you're hair will remain in amazing, healthy condition. 

Hair Drying Tips & Tricks

1. But First, Towel Dry

Don't go straight to the heat. Towel drying is super important to take care of your hair. However there is a technique that ensures your not breaking your strands. Scrunch your hair with your towel instead of rubbing your hair. Rubbing may damage and weaken your hair consequently causing more split ends and fly-aways and frizziness! I also read a while ago to use a cotton t-shirt rather than a towel?

2. Say Hello To A Comb

A comb can become your best friend! 

Wet hair + Comb =  Smooth, Tangle-free and Undamaged Hair

A brush can be too tough on wet hair and can tear and damage the hair follicles. I love to use my Tangle Teaser on my hair once I have come out of the shower as it keeps my hair straight, knot-free but it's kind to the strands.

3. A High Quality Hair Dryer

It is so important to look after your locks as at the end of the day your hair is a huge part of your appearance and identity. Investing in a brilliant quality hair dryer will ensure that your hair will stay in amazing condition and so ultimately less trips to the hairdressers needed, less money spent on hair masks and miracle treatments, and of course no more super short cuts because of split or damaged hair ends!

Panasonic have invented a new portable hair dryer using nanoe technology that is incredible! It's called the Nanoe Ion Hair Dryer. It's innovative technology promises an amazing blow dry as it aims to reduce frizz, add volume, reduce damage, create visibly glossy hair, and help the hair to retain moisture. 

4. Low and Steady

It is recommended to use a low setting on your hair dryer. Yes it does take longer, but it means that there will be less heat damaging your hair. It is also recommended to dry your hair in sections and keep the hair dryer about 15cm from your head. It is also a good idea to use the narrow nozzle for your hair dryer (if you have one)!


5. Be Completely Dry

Sometimes we are in a rush and leave our hair just half dried or still a bit damp, but if you can it's a great idea to ensure your hair is completely dry before leaving the house. It has been proven that hair loses strength when it is wet. Weather can cause your hair to become frizzy and dry, and pollution particles can damage your hair further too.

It might still be considered winter in the UK but there's no reason you can't start preparing for the dreaded spring allergy season. No one likes to suffer from a runny nose, itchy eyes and constant sneezing, so I've prepared a couple of tips to help you make it through this frustrating time of year.


Changing Air Filters

If you've been using air filters to keep pollen under control then you may want to start changing your filters now. Be it air filters in your car or in your air conditioning unit, they should ideally be replaced every season. This helps to keep the air in your home and car clean and fresh while also reducing other airborne problems like dust mites and pet allergies. It's a simple and effective way to ensure that your allergies don't flare up when you're indoors.

Get Medication Ready

It's worth stocking up now on hayfever tablets so that you don't have to run to the shop and pick up more when your symptoms start acting up. If you purchase online, you can get larger boxes of hayfever tablets that work just as well, but you can save quite a bit of money since you're buying in bulk. You could also consider nasal sprays if you've had luck with them in the past with relieving your hayfever symptoms. 

Prepare Extra Sets of Clothes

You might think that you're safe if you make it home without sneezing or rubbing your eyes, but there's a good chance that the pollen spores may have stuck to your clothes and will continue to linger for a while. If you want to be absolutely sure that you don't suffer from your allergies, get a few extra sets of indoor clothes and change into them as soon as you come home. You should also avoid hanging clothes to dry outside because, again, the pollen spores can easily stick to your clothes as they dry and make your symptoms worse.

Focus on Removing Mould

Mould is another spring allergy concern that many people overlook. The spores from mould can trigger nasty allergy symptoms, so make sure you're removing mould from areas like your bathroom and basement to ensure that it doesn't grow out of control and aggravate your symptoms. If you're using a dehumidifier to keep moisture levels in your home under control, then make sure you keep the unit clean as well.

Change Your Schedule to Avoid Triggering Symptoms

Although pollen can be frustrating to deal with, it doesn't mean that we can completely avoid the outdoors. With that said, try changing your schedule around so that you're less exposed to pollen during the mornings when the pollen count is at its highest. Once it reaches noon, the pollen count drops slightly so you don't need to worry so much about the outdoors. 

Hopefully, these tips will make it easier for you to cope with those nasty spring allergies that many of us suffer from. If your symptoms do get progressively worse, then it may be worth speaking to a doctor to see if they can offer solutions such as nasal irrigation to help relieve you of your symptoms.

What's the story, crowning glory?

Introducing Soap&Glory's #HairHeroes!! 


A range of 11 products promising amazing results to transform and tame your hair.

Soap&Glory have created a mix of products from some beautiful shampoos and conditioners, to hero treatments so you can have an amazing hair day every day!

The whole range is completely vegan and free of parabens and sulphates.


Did you know?
[Soap&Glory surveyed 1,521 UK women aged 16+, by Ginger Research, January 2019]

Women spend 4 hours a week styling their hair, and an average of 2 hours for a special occasion!

1/3 of 16-29 year olds describe their hair as being 'full of split ends'.

There has been an 87% increase in the use of #veganhaircare on Instagram.

3/4 of us are unhappy with our hair (this needs to change!!)

75% of us have braved a chop just to get rid of split ends when we'd have preferred to keep the length.

51% describe their hair as a challenge to tame.

25% of women use treatments and masks because they worry that their shampoo and conditioner don't offer enough care.

2/3 of women have changed their hair habits to avoid product build up.


So anyway I was lucky enough to be invited to the beautiful Duck and Dry Hair Salon in Oxford Circus, London for the Soap&Glory launch of their new haircare range '#HairHeroes'! I booked in with the lovely PR girls for a 2pm salon appointment.

I headed up to Oxford Circus after lunch and found Duck and Dry tucked down one of the streets off of Oxford Street. Duck and Dry is a brand new hair salon that specialises in the finest blow dries and up-dos in London. Their hair stylists are super talented and friendly, making the atmosphere and experience so fun and you get to leave with an incredible hairstyle.







Soap&Glory collaborated with Duck and Dry to provide amazing hair experiences using their whole new range! 








The whole salon upstairs was decorated so beautifully and as soon as I arrived I was greeted by the lovely PR girls who offered me some of their delicious pink treats and drinks. I absolutely loved the glittery rose gold prosecco and macaroon brownies of course. I even tried cheese on toast flavoured popcorn... weird I know but it actually tasted quite nice!







I was explained through the new range and then directed to a stylist who transformed my hair.

I had my hair washed and massaged using the new haircare products and they all smell incredible. Once my hair was blow dried it felt so silky and soft, as well as looking volumized! The stylist then curled my hair and finished the look off with the wonder serum which made my hair look so glossy and smooth.

Ciler Peksah, a super talented hairstylist, was at the event too giving out haircare and hairstyling tips and advice!

I had such a lovely afternoon with Soap&Glory at Duck and Dry. I was really happy with my hair and the stylists were so so lovely!

Looking for a beautiful cocktail bar with reasonable prices in London?
Loves Company is a hidden gem found in Shoreditch.


So tomorrow is my 20th birthday and to celebrate I wanted to go to somewhere in London cocktails. However when it comes to drinks (in particular cocktails) London's prices can be crazy, so I was on the hunt for a cocktail bar that looked cute and served delicious cocktails at an affordable price!

Loves Company is located just outside of Old Street tube station in Shoreditch.

The bar's interior is so cute; filled with twinkly lights, plants, neon signs, and loads of other weird and wonderful items.

Upstairs is a cute lounge bar with tables and stalls for people to drink at, and downstairs is another room with a bar covered in twinkly lights.

Loves Company provides a range of cocktails that are really delicious! My friend and I had the 'Loves Company Mojito' (basically a strawberry mojito) that tasted amazing, and my others friends chose Pornstar Martinis and Cosmopolitans. The rest of my friends had beers the whole night and, due to Happy Hour running from 8pm to 10pm, the prices were decent. Cocktails were 2 for £15 and beers were 3 for £10. Other deals included 2 mixers for £12.

The music upstairs was a range of hip hop and R&B as well as a few cheesy tunes. I know that Loves Company also hold themed nights for other music tastes which is something you could look at on their Facebook page.

Last night was a Tuesday, and every Tuesday night Loves Company hosts a comedy evening in the downstairs bar. The tickets are only £3 or £5 with a beer, however I won't be going back for another comedy night at Loves Company as I wasn't really impressed... Usually I laugh at pretty much anything or anyone tbh; I love all types of comedy, but last night I hardly laughed at all. I don't know if it was the intimacy of the tiny audience or the lack of organisation, but the comedians just weren't very funny and I found the evening quite awkward...

But I would love to return to Loves Company again for a normal evening with just cocktails and music, as the place is fun and vibrant with great deals on drinks and a friendly atmosphere! The décor inside is perfect for photos, and the music is great too. So I would definitely recommend for you to give it a try but perhaps just skip it on a Tuesday...

(Apologises for the lack of photos in this blog post but because the comedy was so intimate it would've been too awkward to whack out my phone to take photos...)

Just spritz and go right? 
Well, yeah ok you can wear perfume like that, but learning how to finesse wearing perfume like a pro can leave the fragrance smelling crisper and lasting much longer.


I'm going to share with you some tips to wear your perfume perfectly!

I'm also showcasing my current favourite cologne by Jo Malone; Pomegranate Noir. After working as a Christmas Stylist at Jo Malone, Royal Exchange, over Christmas last year, I fell in love with their candles, bath oils and colognes again.


Jo Malone's top selling fragrances are the Lime, Basil and Mandarin scent and the Pomegranate Noir scent (consequently my absolute favourite scent too). I was lucky enough to be gifted a bottle of cologne with my choice of fragrance as a parting and thank you present. My manager was so lovely and engraved my initials on the top of the bottle too making the gift so special and pretty!


I would certainly recommend Jo Malone as the quality of their perfumes is incredible and their products are definitely worth their price. All their fragrances are light and fresh with traditional British scent combinations and are super long lasting. 

They make the most beautiful gifts for friends and family too with the prettiest gift-wrapping and the special engraving service too.


Anywayyyy….

How do I wear my perfume perfectly??

Keep Your Cool

You wouldn't leave a bottle of white wine out in the sun right? Store your perfume in a cool, dry place to ensure that the perfume remains the perfect scent.

Post-Bath Or Post-Shower

Perfume lasts longer on warm skin, so it's a lovely idea to apply perfume straight after a bath or shower before heading out. Remember don't use too scented bath and shower products so they don't disrupt the perfume's scent.

Moisturise

Scent doesn't last long on dry skin. A way to keep the fragrance lasting longer is to moisturise your skin before with an unscented moisturiser, and then spritz the perfume on top. You can always add Vaseline to the area first before spritzing the cologne to last longer too!

Expose It

Don't cover up the areas that you spray with clothes or accessories. Good areas that always stay exposed tend to be your neck and wrists, and this is why these areas tend to be popular places to apply perfume.

Hair's An Idea

Combing through some spritz in your hair is a lovely way to wear your perfume. As it moves around during the day, the perfume will be wafted releasing it's aroma. The fragrance latches on to your hair fibres, and any hair products you've used making it last longer. Be careful not to use too much though as the alcohol can dry your hair out.

Say No To Clothes

It's a bad idea to spray perfume onto clothes as the fragrance doesn't tend to last as long, and often you can be left with water marks that don't look too great.

Pulse Points

Pulse points are places where the blood flows close to the skin. There is extra heat at these areas, and also the heat is released so is the aroma. The best places are the collarbone, the wrists, behind your ears, inside your elbows, and behind your knees.

Let It Dry

Don't be tempted to rub in perfume as the skins natural oils can change the perfume's scent.

Distance From Skin?

Usually 5-7 inches away from the skin is recommended.
