Hair Brushing: I don't always brush my hair. Let's not dwell on this.
The Lemon Lightening Trick: I once tried applying squeezed lemon to my hair in order to naturally lighten it in the sun. It did not work for several reasons; I was brunette, I was in Northern Norway where the sun doesn't shine so bright and it was tough to wash out. Lesson learnt.
I'm Not a Good for a Sleep-In: I have always been an early riser (lucky mum and dad), and even now I struggle to sleep in for longer than 7 or 8 am. Years of working shift work hasn't helped either. Even if I go to bed at midnight my body still just wants that early start. I don't deprive it, I just take extra power naps.
I Spill Makeup: My wonderful mineral foundation from Kit has a flaw. First of all it looks a little yellow because it has to even out my naturally rouge skintone, and further to this the lid has a chip. This makes it a little hard to apply without spilling powder on the floor but lo and behold, if Mike's gym-bag is at the floor it gets even worse. At least I have apologised on behalf of Kit but I won't change.
Those 8 Glasses of Water: I don't always make the cut. At work I often am too busy and too much on the run to realise that I need vann (don't say I never teach you anything, vann is water in Norwegian). I am often away from my desk and will get a sip of my bottle when I can. I guess it doesn't help that work has a cordial machine too which spews out varying green or red liquid depending on your preference. But back on topic, I need to improve. The liquid chlorophyll is certainly helping things and I recently bought an awesome notepad from Kikki K (also known as heaven for stationary lovers), where you can tick off how much water you have had. So organised.
The epiphany: A couple of months ago I realised I didn't want to colour my hair until I get grays peeking through. This epiphany lasted all of 5 days until I discovered John Frieda's Precision Foam. Now I am colouring my hair again. For anyone wondering what my natural colour is, please see below where I am colour-coordinatingly posing in Finland.
Dry Shampoo: Addicted, more like it. Being in an industry where presentation is very important, nothing beats being able to sleep for an additional 20 minutes because you can dry shampoo your hair. Again. I know my colleagues will agree.
Tomatoes: I don't like tomato seeds. So there.
I should become a scent connoisseur because I wish I had the words to describe how amazing the Macadamia Oil smells. It's not overly sweet but smells like a slice of vanilla/macadamia heaven.
My hair can look quite lionish in the morning and this oil knows how to tame the beast. I also really like the size of the bottle because it is compact and very handy. At 100 mls it is travel and handbag friendly.
I only need to use a five cent piece of oil in my hair but I often use a little extra because the scent is just so nice! My hair also feels softer and more managable.
As it retails for $24.99, it is a much more affordable product compared to Moroccan Oil and it will last just as long.
