Valentine’s Day-are you ready?

valentinesdayheart

Honestly? My significant other and I don’t really exchange gifts on V-day. There are several reasons for it, mainly that, we have Christmas, then his birthday, then mine, then our anniversary (don’t give gifts there either) 2 days prior to the 14th.  That’s a lot of gifting.

Ballet. As an adult.

Yes you read that right.  I am stepping out of my comfy little box and out from behind my screen.  And trying.  There will be more to come on this later, but for now I’ll leave you with some inspiration ….and my feet.

Introducing Pantene’s newest ambassador, Chiara Ferragni!

image001

Pantene has announced the world’s top digital fashion icon and international trendsetter, Chiara Ferragni as the new face – and hair – for the brand.

A bona fide fashion star with over 5 million Instagram followers, Chiara is now ready to make her mark in beauty with Pantene. “I’m obsessed with my hair! I’ve always felt that when I have beautiful hair, I look and feel more beautiful – and stronger. When I was a teenager, I was fascinated by Pantene’s gorgeous ads and when I started travelling frequently I trusted it to look after my hair. So I’m thrilled to be Pantene’s latest ambassador because healthy hair helps me look and feel stronger and more beautiful.”

Commenting on the decision to recruit arguably the biggest phenomenon in the online style-sphere to front the global mega-brand, Layal Ammar, Pantene Brand Director, says: “We’re thrilled to announce the collaboration between the world’s top digital fashion icon and the world’s #1 haircare brand.   Chiara is the epitome of the modern day woman with very demanding hair needs – she is constantly styling  her hair, yet her hair is always immaculate. This is because Chiara’s choice is Pantene – she has been using the brand since she was a teen – and now we have joined forces to tell the world about her hair care secrets.”

I’m excited to see what Chiara will bring to the world of Pantene-she obviously has GREAT hair!  What do you think?

Irresistible Me extensions-my very first clip ins!

I’ve worn extensions before-last year in fact.  I’ve had fusion extensions and euro-lock extensions.  I loved them both but they were quite high maintenance….even for ME.  And the cost?  More than I’d care to admit.  I happily accepted an opportunity to try clip in extensions from Irresistible Me.
