Haircare, like skincare, is a bit tricky for me. I think it is my penance for all those crazy styling and colouring on my teenage years that my hair is quiet rebellious. After three long years of looking after my hair, it goes back to its healthy state. However, like I said earlier, it is quiet sensitive to change. At the beginning of June, I went to Prague where the temperature is mostly over 29Celcius and the on and off heatwave in the UK is making my hair cray-cray again. I tried my old trusted hair products but nothing seem to work on my fast becoming frizzy hair. It doesn't help as well that I'm growing my hair longer so I really need my hair strong and healthy. After introducing some products, I finally manage my hair to stay calm and healthy again. If you are having to fight frizzy hair or you just want a healthy long, hair then you might pick some tips in here.

Nude lips are like the easiest lip look that I can pull off anytime of the year. It is effortless and appropriate in all occasions. It can tone down dramatic eyes. It is also very low maintenance yet it always look elegant. It's like I can never go wrong with a nude lip. As a fan of nude lips, I have tons of nude lipsticks and tried countless products. From my nude lip stash, I narrowed it down to five of which I think are the best from the rest. It also caters for all budgets. If you are looking for a good nude lipstick or you are just starting out into lipsticks, I have a few recommendations that might help you.

Here I am again with another post of my monthly favourites. A rundown of what I have been enjoying throughout the month of July. July has been mostly hot with heat waves except for the last bit which is rainy so most of my favourites are products that are suitable for hot weather. It is summer anyway in the UK but our weather is getting confuse as usual (nothing new in that). Some of the products will be a repetition of previous monthly favourites but the rest are mostly unmentioned products.

New collections always excite me like everyone else. You might probably by now how I love Clarins. Not only does their products have chic packaging, most if not all of their products also has good quality. My make-up collection includes plenty of Clarins products but each collection still manage to surprise and awe me with new things. I think this is part of the amour of Clarins. The brand tries to bring out new products or ideas that are innovative and refreshing. This recent collection is minimal compared to Clarins' previous collections yet the whole collection appears to be well-thought. For Autumn 2015 Collection, Clarins released five new products including a limited edition eyeshadow palette. That palette is on top of my lust list. On the other hand, I had the opportunity to try the other equally amazing bits from the collection. After testing them out, I'm ready for my report.

As the weather changes, I also switch my skincare routine. For winter time, my skin is dry and sensitive whilst on warmer months, it's just plainly a combination skin and still sensitive. For this summer, I actually changes my skincare routine twice. My usual summer skincare routine is not working for this year. I ended up with a very angry and unhappy skin. I was horrified as I never had breakouts as much as I had at the end of May. I tried several products and I finally found the skincare routine that works with my skin in this temperamental weather which is scorching on one day and then raining the next.
