Reasons to visit Catalonia

I haven’t been to Spain for about 15 years, so it's come back around on my travel wish list having heard great things about Catalonia in particular. Catalonia is surrounded by mountains and the Mediterranean Sea - however it’s worth bearing in mind that you probably need to rent a car to get around also because the areas that I want to visit are all pretty far apart - so just for the convenience factor I think it would be the best choice.

Blonde Hair Care - Getting Rid of Brassy Tones

I love love love being (bottle) blonde, but a big problem I suffer with is brassy tones and dull/dry hair. This month I've been trying out a couple of new products to get my hair looking ashy and glossy.

The first product is  ‘BlowTones’ by Pimps and Pinups which is exclusive to ASOS and helps to eliminate brassy tones. This product is multipurpose - not only is it a heat protector spray but it also has a non-permanent colour toner (in a light purple to combat those yellowy/orange tones) as well as conditioning the hair and adding shine. What I love about this range is that they are ammonia free, affordable, and the bottles are a pretty good size at 150ml each so that will probably last me a couple of months.

Hempz Original Body Moisturiser

I suffer from very dry skin, and occasionally break out in small patches of eczema, so my body moisturisers not only have to be super nourishing but they also need to be gentle on my skin.

Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturiser is enriched with 100% Pure Organic Hemp Seed Oil and is blended with natural extracts which are gentle on the skin, but also deeply hydrating.

Hemp oil is made by pressing the raw seeds of the hemp plant, scientifically called Cannabis Sativa (which explains the Cannabis leaf logo). Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fibre which are a good source of Vitamin E antioxidants.
