Batiste Dry Shampoo; Review

I got batiste dry shampoo a while a go just to try it because I have had other brands of dry shampoo in my Glossy and Jolie Boxes and I have heard a lot about this brand so thought I would try it out.

When I got it I got the coloured one - Dark and Deep Brown, because I have dark brown hair and the others show up in my hair and make it look dusty and dirty. Anyway my thoughts on this shampoo are: I really like it, it really works well and makes my hair look cleaner, it also gives my hair volume which I like because when I have dirty hair it goes limp and flat. The only thing is even when I rub it in to my scalp it still comes out on my hands when I run my fingers though my hair and because it is a brown colour it makes my fingers brown and gets stuck in my nails, which is the only annoying thing! But other wise it is good to use if you are  just going out quickly or are going to school and haven't had time to wash it.

Have you tried their shampoo and do you like it?

I heart Autumn/Fall tag

I have seen loads of people doing the I heart fall tag's on Youtube but haven't seen any going around the blogging world, and I love autumn so I thought I would use the Youtube questions and do my own. Hope you like it and have a go. 

1. Favourite Fall lip product?
Any lipstick that is quite dark. But at the moment I am using lots of chap sticks because my lips crack really easy, and my favourite one is so Susan lip cushion which I got in a Jolie Box.

2. Favourite Nail Varnish?
My favourite nail varnishes for autumn are all the dark colours like reds and browns but at the moment is Black Red by Barry M.

 Favourite Fall Activity?
Going to a place called Westonbirt and watching all the leaves turn colours on the trees, and then collecting them all. Also the warm dark nights sitting on the sofa in my duvet.

4. Favourite Starbucks Fall Drink?
I have only been to Starbucks twice and this drink isn't an autumn one but I like the caramel frappuchino

5. Favourite Fall Candle? 

My favourite candle is called Festive Cheer from a little shop close to where I live. It smells a bit or Cinnamon and a real Christmas smell (I cant describe smells!)

6. Favourite Fall Scarf or accessory?
I love snoods. I really need to get a big fluffy one because they keep me so warm and I don't have to bother with one end of the scarf being almost touching the floor!

7. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?
I don't understand! : /

8. Favourite Halloween movie?
Well I don't really watch very many movies and I get scared very easily so...

Favorite candy to eat on Halloween?
Anything with chocolate in it :P

10.What did you dress up for Halloween?!
The mad hatter. Its one of the first Time I have properly dressed up for Halloween so I was planning it for ages. I might do a blog post on what I am wearing! because I am so exited about it.

11. What is your Favourite thing about Fall?
Sitting on the sofa in my PJ's being snug and warm. Also it is my birthday soon so that's another thing that gets me very exited :)

Now its your turn, I tag YOU :) what are your favourite things about autumn and fall?

Jolie Box #1

yay my first Jolie Box :)
A few weeks ago I entered a compotion on Sammi's blog (Beauty Crush) for either 6 months free subscription or 3 months free subscription to Jolie Box. I was so exited when I found out that I had won 3 months subscription, I was never expect it and was going to try out jolie box anyway because I have tried Glossy Box and wanted a change so to get 3 months free subscription was amazing!
 I was so exited when I opened it. 
With Jolie Box you get a little magazine/newsletter which is a great touch to the box. So I am really interested to read it but here are the things I got with my jolie box :)

Jolie Box :D

What was in side it was really cute because it came in a bag which will come in really useful! 

Wen By Caz Dean: Sweet Almond and Mint cleansing conditioner. 
This looks great and smells so good I want to eat it! I can't wait to use it because my hair will smell so nice after and I love trying new products in my hair.
It says on the leaflet bursting with natural hers and botanicals, this single-step cleansing conditioner leave hair looking and feeling deeply cleansed and nourished at the same time.

Bronz Repair: You are meant to use this before and after sun bathing to stop wrinkles. I have used it but I can't say I have seen a difference, but it dose cool down the skin a bit.

Etat Pur Pure Active A22 Salicylic Acid 300: I think this is just mostly Salicylic Acid which is used to get rid of spots and blemishes. I am quite lucky because I don't get many spots but I have used this and it so far has worked. Also it doesn't have any scent which is nice so my face doesn't smell acidy.

Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner: This is quite good it makes me look a bit orange but yes it does tan. It is quite sparkle and with this small tube I only think I could do one leg but its wort a try.

NailGirls: The last this was these two nail varnishes which I was really exited about because you all probably know how much I love nail varnish. These are from the range inspired by the Olympics and I am sorry but I don't know what the are called but I really like them.  

And the last thing is so sweet it is finger separators for when I paint my nails with Jollie Box on.
I quite liked my firs Jolie Box and am looking forward to my next one  :) xx
