Bargain Haircare Finds - Poundshop

Who doesn't like finding a new, amazing quality product... better yet, when it only cost's you £1!

I recently went on a little Poundshop spree and found myself being drawn to the beauty and cosmetics section. I always find it to be a little treasure trove of trial products, last season sells and high end "dupes", with new products constantly arriving! This trip, like most of my Poundshop sprees did not disappoint, and i'm sharing with you today 5 products I have picked up and tested in the last couple of weeks! (So you should still be able to grab yourself a bargain in store!)
Up first we have the Schwarzkopf Pro Style Heat Defence Spray. I made a devoted vow to myself this year to take good care of my hair, as in previous it has been neglected with serious heat damage. So when I saw this heat defence spray I had to pick it up and give it a try. My trusty L'Oreal Elnett (circa £6) was running low anyway and I thought for the sake of £1 let's give it a try. I loved the fact it protected against heat up to 220c (I know my hair straighteners are 200c) and the pump design of the bottle was again very similar to my expensive go to!

10 Instagram Ready Inspirational Quotes

Just a quick post today to share with you some "Instagram Ready" Inspirational Quotes. I got a little design happy on Canva last night so thought what better use is there than to share them with you all. They are all free of 'credit marks' (they don't have "Lilli of London" sprawled across them) so will look great on your Instagram without getting in the way of your theme. I love doing these, so if you have anything specific you are looking for, or if there is one below you like but you would prefer it in a different colour, please do get in touch ( or @lillioflondon on Twitter) and I'd be happy to help!

Fresh Starts - Hello 2018

I feel a little too late out of the blocks with this one, i'm not sure where January (or February for that matter!) has gone but let's roll with it and accept that it is still early enough in 2018 to be writing such a post.

Hello! You have no idea how good it feels to be back writing again. It has certainly been a while, so massive thank you's to all who have stuck around and stayed loyal despite the lack of productivity or any form of content and interaction what so ever for the past year! You are true stars! I have genuinely been meaning to write this post for some time now, I completely revamped the old blog design (thank you pipdig), overhauled the social media templates and culled all the old embarrassing posts from years ago which I felt needed to be disposed of... then never actually got around to writing anything!

I suppose we should start off with a very brief but positive reflection on 2017? Let's see... I'd say the main highlights were that I moved house twice, got a promotion at work and travelled to 6 different countries. But despite there of course being negatives and hardships of 2017 (like losing my Granddad suddenly) I'd say all round it was a wonderful year, and contrary to what seems to be the popular consensus that 2017 was awfully tragic... it really wasn't that bad! In actual fact i'd say it was one of the greatest for me in a very long time.
