Academy Awards Top 3 Best Dressed

Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you all know yesterday was the 89th Academy Awards ceremony. Award season is one of my favourite times of the year as I'm such an avid lover of film and the Oscars is always at the top of my must watch list. If it's not clear from the first three photos of this post La La Land is my absolute favourite movie of this season and Emma Stone can do no wrong in my eyes. I'm absolutely obsessed and definitely have a little bit of a girl crush going on. As usual there was lots of amazing fashion. Here are my top three fashion picks!

Emma Stone in Givenchy
In my opinion, Emma was the absolute stand out of the night. She looked absolutely incredible and both her dress by Givenchy and make up were completely faultless. Stunning!

Emma Roberts in Armani Privé
Emma #2 is another favourite of mine, both last night and in general. I really loved her completely sustainable Armani Privé dress paired with gorgeous Swarovski jewellery and a red lip. Both fashionable and environmentally friendly!

Olivia Culpo in Marchesa
Olivia is someone who I'm not overly familiar with however when I was looking through red carpet photos I fell in love with her Gatsby like dress. I'm not a huge fan of her hair styling but the dress is stunning!

Who was your fashion favourite of the night?

Hairburst- Does it Really Work?

I honestly don't even want to think of how many times I've coloured my hair over the years. I've been red, dark brown and many, many different shades of blonde (including white). As you can imagine, I've suffered from my fair share of damaged hair. However, in the last year or so I've managed to really rehydrate and bring my hair from super damaged to relatively healthy, with the help of multiple different products (two of which are mentioned here in my holy grail hair products post). Hairburst is another product that has completely transformed my hair.

The Best of Budget Beauty

While I'm a huge lover of high-end beauty products, theres nothing better than finding an amazing budget option for a fraction of the price (because who doesn't want more money in their bank account?!). Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite budget beauty products which will hopefully help if you're on the hunt for something new that won't break the bank.

Valentines Outfit Ideas

Are the Boys in My Yard Yet?

Please tell me you guys aren't getting sick of Valentines content yet? I really hope not because I'm loving it and there's even more to come! I've been really excited to start getting some non-beauty related posts up and thought Valentines would be the perfect time to start. I'd really like to start branching out and including not only beauty related content but also fashion, food and so much more. So what better way to start than with Valentines themed strawberry milkshakes to sip with your significant other come February 14th!

To make these you will need vanilla ice-cream, milk of your choosing, strawberry topping, whipped cream, pink sprinkles and lots of pretty decorations. First cover the rim of you glass or jar in something sticky (I used maple syrup but you can you chocolate fudge sauce), dip in pink sprinkles and allow to set. In a blender combine 1 cup of milk, 4 scoops of ice-cream and your desired amount of strawberry syrup. Continue to add more ice-cream until you reach your desired thickness. Then top with whipped cream and decorate with all things pretty and pink. Enjoy!

Easy Valentines Nail Art

While Valentines Day may not be the most important holiday around, I really can't help but love it. What's better than filling up on chocolate, receiving flowers and wearing pink? While the pink outfits may have to wait until the day itself, now is the perfect time to rock some Valentines inspired nail art. I kept this one pretty simple as I don't have the same patience for nail art that I used to, but it's pretty cute nonetheless.

I started by applying a base coat, followed by 3 coats of a baby pink nail polish by Models Own (Pink Veneer, but you can use whatever you like). I then cut off a piece of sticky tape, folded it in half and cut a half heart shape into the fold. When you open the piece of sticky tape you should have a whole heart stencil. I then placed it on my nail after the pink had dried and applied 2 coats of red nail polish over the tape. Wait for it to dry slightly, remove the sticky tape and finish with a top coat. Super easy and very cute!

Let me know if you plan on trying this super easy look!

Holy Grail Hair Products

A couple of years ago I made the huge mistake of dyeing my hair white (I'm talking paper white, not blonde). Ever since then I've struggled with keeping my hair healthy and strong. That was until I came across these two hair heroes.

Olaplex: I've been using Olaplex No. 3 for well over a year now and I can say with absolute confidence that this is hands down the best hair discovery I've ever made. Olaplex No. 3 is a treatment that repairs broken bonds in your hair in order to create super strong and healthy hair. I use it at least once a week before I hop in the shower and then follow up with shampoo and conditioner. It's not the cheapest hair product on the market but it's definitely worth it!

Ouai Hair Oil: I've never really been a fan of hair oils as most that I've tried tend to weigh my hair down and leave it looking greasy and heavy. However, the Ouai Hair Oil has changed my mind completely. It leaves my hair looking super shiny and sleek without weighing it down. The oil can be used either on wet hair before blowdrying or after blowdrying for extra sheen. I tend to pop a little on before and after blowdrying but that's just what works best for me!

Have you tried either of these products?
