Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle



I'm a fan of big hair, big, big hair. Despite not having massively long hair, it's thick & it's heavy so I'm always ruffing it up to restore the volume. I backcomb layers & hairspray each one, but not only does this take time & effort, it also makes my hair feel gross, unmovable & not to mention isn't great for the health of my hair.

Now I've been looking for this stuff ever since Kelly posted about it's damn right amazingness, but alas, it's ben sold out in all my local Boots. So when I got an email asking as a little Christmas gesture if I'd like to be sent a bottle as I'd been finding it so hard, I was over the moon. Sadly it'd been sitting in the Royal Mail depo for some time as it couldn't fit in my mail box & I must have been out & about when they attempted to bring me this little can of joy, so when my star of a mam went to go pick it up for me I was done with waiting & couldn't wait to try it. I loved it from the first try & knew I had to spread the word.

I've just had my hair cut & coloured & whenever I go to the hairdressers, no matter where I go I always feel that I'm walking out of the salon with crazy flat hair, so I thought, prime time to show you the wonders of this product. The first picture is obviously my post salon pancake hair, next is after I've sprayed the Backcomb in a Bottle through a few sections of my hair & juzzed it up with my fingers & finally, the third picture shows the results of a little more of the product through my hair & a blast from the hairdryer with my head upside down. Voila, volume! Bloody love this stuff!

All I want for Christmas



This year, despite wishing for so many things day to day I found it hard to bring together a Christmas list. My boyfriend laughed at me when he found my list written out on word as I emailed it to my mum. I'm not the only one to make a list still at the age of 22 am I? Afterall it's only suggestions & in my defense my mum asks for one every year as she knows how picky I can be!

I've been lemming the whole long blonde hair with a Russian style fur headband for a while now, all I need now is for my roots to be bleached & to find some beautiful hair extensions, curl them into soft waves & pull this over to complete the look.

All I need to round everything together in a beautiful big bag, a Mulberry Alexa would be the dream, but slightly out of budget. The search is on.

What have you asked for this year?
