Vos Beauty Salon Chelsea Review

Vos Beauty Salon Chelsea Review

A few weeks ago I was very kindly invited to Vos Beauty Salon in Chelsea to try out some of their treatments. It’s on the King’s Road, right opposite The Bluebird restaurant so it’s in a great location. I love that part of London: it’s brilliant for wandering around, staring at houses and cars that you might buy if you win the lottery or marry a rich oligarch. Always a fun way to pass the time!

KeraStraight Ultimate Treatment Fringe Straightening Review – Trevor Sorbie, Covent Garden

KeraStraight Ultimate Treatment Fringe Straightening Review - Trevor Sorbie

A few weeks ago I was invited to the Trevor Sorbie salon in Covent Garden for a KeraStraight Ultimate treatment. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may remember that I had a KeraStraight treatment last year (which you can read about HERE) which was amazing. I feel like people throw around the term ‘life-changing’. But for me, not having to straighten my hair every single day and being able to forget about frizz completely for 3 months… that’s pretty life-changing!

Since I’ve had my hair cut shorter, it’s a lot more manageable but I’d forgotten how much work goes into a fringe when you have wavy hair. I would have to blow dry it, but the underside would still be frizzy and had a stubborn kink. And of course as soon as it rained or became humid, it would start to curl up. So the idea of getting my a semi-permanent treatment on my fringe filled me with pure joy!

Mani Monday Marble Nail Art

Mani Monday Marble Nail Art

I have wanted to do marble inspired nail art for ages and I’m pretty pleased with the results. I was just making it up as I went along so it’s definitely something I’ll revisit, I think some more detailing with darker shades will give it even more impact and make it look more realistic.

Why I don’t want a promotion

Today I told my boss that I didn’t want to be put forward for a promotion – one I was pretty much guaranteed to get. It was a strange moment and not one in which I ever envisioned myself. You leave school or uni and get a job and the stepping stones are laid out in front of you: you work hard, your boss recognises that, you get a promotion and the process starts again.

So what happens when you don’t follow that path?
