“You have such thick beautiful hair!” “Can I please have your hair?” These are compliments I often hear. I don’t necessarily feel I am ‘blessed’ with fabulous hair, rather, I know how to look after it, and put time and effort into keeping it beautiful, strong and healthy.

lipidol after shower oil

Hiiiii *waves* It’s been a while since I’ve posted about Lipidol on Smudged, you can see the first post about the Lipidol products here. I recently came across my Lipidol After Shower Oil in my dressing table top drawer and thought I should give it another try. I couldn’t remember why I had stopped using […]

Happy Wednesday lovely people. In case you haven’t heard/seen/discovered, Labello has brought out a new product, Blackberry Shine. It’s got an awesome dark purple-ish sheen that makes it look like you’re wearing a bit of make-up when you’ve really just popped on some Labello that was hanging around in your handbag, winning. This delightful shade […]

how to highlight contour

Hi ladies, Just a quick post from me today. I’ve had so many conversations lately about highlighting and contouring, where to highlight, where not to highlight, “do you know how to do that contouring thing” and some girls just sound quite frightened about the whole thing.

Helloooooo. Yes, I know it’s been ages since we’ve posted, let’s just skip over that very quickly and pretend that it never happened so I can get straight into telling you how to make this super easy coffee scrub. I’m sure you’ve seen coffee scrubs all over instagram, being endorsed by various insta-celebs, but guuuuuys […]

Guys, listen here, if you don’t already know, now you do. The balayage obsession is REAL. Yes, I’m fully into it, and I’ve got the lovely Ninette at Scar to thank for my balayage. All the cool kids are doing it. (AKA it’sΒ all over Pinterest and Instagram). Are you on board with this balayage trend? […]

Hiiiiii So, I’m not sure about you, but my hair is pretty fickle when it comes to BFFs. One week it looooooves this new shampoo, the next week – over it, and on to the next one. Anymore, less about my hair’s imaginaryΒ feelings and more about my hair’s current BFF – Dove’s pure care dry […]
