My favourite type of holiday includes lots of sunbathing, reading, swimming, local food and cocktails with a splash of shopping and site seeing! Rhodes certainly delivered.
We had plenty of beautiful beaches near by, our favourites were Afandou beach with its crystal clear waters and Lindos beach.
Lindos is a beautiful town, full of winding streets with rows of white buildings. We spent 2 days there, enjoying some shopping, local food, yummy cocktails, the beach and the ice bar-a little hidden gem!
We also enjoyed exploring Rhodes town where you’ll find a mix of nice cafes, little shops and a lovey Marina.
This is my third Lucky Dip Club box and my favourite so far! I loved the other 2 boxes but this theme makes me super happy! The Lucky Dip Club is a subscription box for lovers of handmade items an Leona … Continue reading
I am enjoying having shorter hair but where as with long hair you can just tie it up I have found my shorter hair requires styling to look passable!
My lob (long bob) is ombre so does tend to look better with some shape and to be honest my hair straighteners are on there way out! So I was desperate to find an easy way to style my hair!
Now one way I have found that creates a lovely volumous look is popping large rollers in for a few hours for body and bounce. I have tried sleeping in them but I find I don’t get as good an effect so I tend to dry my hair 3/4 dry then pop them in for an hour or so while I get ready.
I think lobs, particularly ombre look great wavy and waves are a perfect summer look however I cannot be bothered to use a wand or curler on my hair every day to achieve this look, so I thought I’d try out the no heat required waves/curls technique.
Basically you wrap sections of you’re hair around a hairband so you look like this! I did mine in freshly washed and dried hair- I just spritzed with a little salt water to slightly dampen. I then left just over an hour for hair to dry and gently removed the headband.
I’m so happy with the result I plan to rock this look over the rest of the holidays!
Have you tried this method of curling?
For July/August a mermaid/beach themed nail. What do you think? L xxx

I was very excited with my free gift with Elle this month, a 30ml Percy & Reed no oil volumising oil. In my last blog I promised I’d do an honest review of this product once I’d tried it.
I have fine hair and a lot of it which tends to get greasy and often lacks volume. I often struggle to find products which work with my hair type so I was excited to give this one a go. I was not disappointed! After following the instructions on the bottle and adding 3 drops to my towel dried hair then drying, my hair was smooth and volumous and not at all greasy. The effects lasted for 2 days which I was really pleased with as my hair can be a little limp on the second day after washing.
This is a product I will definitely be re purchasing!
I love a good freebie and this month the lovely people at Elle are treating us to a 30ml Percy & Reed Volumising No Oil Oil. The rrp of this product is £14 for 60ml.
Percy & Reed Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil For Fine Hair is a marvellous multi-tasker and a true hair innovation. It nourishes and repairs hair, giving smooth, sleek, silky locks whilst also adding volume. What more could you ask for?
Apply the ultralight, water-based formula to the roots and through the lengths of the hair to add volume without creating build-up or making hair feel greasy. The formula instantly conditions and rehydrates, improving hair condition and creating mirror-like shine, while volumising ingredients work to build body and provide hold, boosting hair’s resistance to frizz and humidity. Perfect for fine, lank flat hair that lacks volume, and for fine to medium hair of any length.
I have a quite fine hair that tends to lack volume and can get quite greasy so I’m really looking forward to putting this product to the test! Watch this space for an honest review!
