Orchids



Mesh Panelled Maxi Dress - Asos

You may remember a post I did on this orchid print maxi a few months ago. I finally got to wear it over the weekend at a friends wedding and I felt very special in it. The print is so bold I kept my accessories simple and understated to let the dress speak for itself. I rarely wear maxi dresses these days so I forgot how glamorous they make you feel, I may have to invest in a few more!

Palm Trees



I picked up this dress in New Look a few weeks ago on a whim. I wasn't sure about the print at first but now I absolutely adore it. Palm tree print seems to be everywhere at the moment and I'll admit I'm a little late to the party. Monochrome however is a trend I love so it's definitely a welcome addition to my wardrobe. I think this dress is made for special occasions so I've decided to wear it to a wedding in a couple of months time, I'll be pairing it with black strappy sandals and a red coral lipstick. How would you style this?

Moroccan Oil Mask



I'm a firm believer in the benefits of Moroccan Oil, having been using it for a few years now and seeing how it can transform my hair. I've tried various different masks and treatments and I have to say, nothing makes my hair feel as soft and silky as this product right here. It's meant to be applied to towel-dried hair (after shampooing) and combed through, then left for a few minutes to penetrate the hair. The directions then say to rinse off and finish with conditioner but I usually skip this step, as I find my hair feels conditioned enough after using this. The texture is a little bit gloopy but once applied it combs through very nicely. Like most Moroccan Oil products it smells fantastic and there is a substantial amount in the pot so it will last a while. This is a relief considering the hefty price tag, but honestly it is so worth it. If you're suffering from dry or damaged hair then I'd say this is the treatment for you. I have very thick curly hair which is naturally porous and dry so this has been a life-saver for me.
