REVIEW: Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush


I am a huge lover of anything to do with beauty and that will improve my looks/hair within minutes. So this means that I am a lover of Batiste dry shampoo, I have already blogged about the lovely Tropical scented dry shampoo which you can read here.

I just wanted to do a mini post on the Blush scent dry shampoo that I have been using quite a lot during the past few weeks. This really has been a life saver when it comes to early mornings getting ready for work and those lazy days when washing my hair has just simply been a no go.

I love how fresh and floral the scent of Blush is this is shown via the visuals on the can in baby pink and bright pink patterns. I scent is not over powering at all, if it were then I wouldn't be using it over and over again, this has a subtle sweet floral scent to it which is perfect for the summer months.

I would recommend anyone to buy the Blush scent, especially if you are going on holiday or to a festival as it will keep your hair in tip top condition as well as smelling utterly gorgeous.

Have any of you girls tried this? If so, what did you think to it? Or do you have a different favourite scented dry shampoo that you use?  Let me know by leaving a comment!


Photoshoot with More! magazine

So as most of you already know I had a photoshoot with More! magazine in July for a Summer Special feature and it came out on Tuesday 2nd August. You can read all about my day with the gorgeous and fantastic team right here

I am actually featured on the left hand side of the front cover, which for starters I cannot get over, as if I am on the front cover of a magazine, AHHHH!!

Inside the magazine is a double 2 page featuring myself and the 3 other girls in our Summer outfits for the day and evening. I would like to point out at this point that the night-time outfit is not mine, I originally took along my denim playsuit but because my lunchtime outfit included denim they didn't want me to look the same for all 3 photos. But they have only used the beach wear and night-time wear, which I am a little gutted about as I could have wore my playsuit after all!

I had no idea that men would be rating our looks as well, so this came as a huge shock when I saw it on the front cover preview on Monday 1st August, read the post I did here. I was already very nervous to see how the pictures would turn out but this made me a little more on edge to see what these guys would think of my style.

So this is the picture that was chosen for the beach wear look and I have to say that I LOVE IT!! I felt so confident in front of the camera in my bikini and with the other girls and because I was in my own clothes. 

Marko (style journalist) - I like the style and cut of this bikini. All Rachel needs is some chunky beach jewellery
Pete (sound technician) - This bikini is a bit bland, but Rachel seems laid-back and like she'd be fun on the beach
Dan (holiday firm worker) - I like the print on this bikini, but I don't think the style is flattering on any girl.

To say that I wasn't 100% sure about the outfit that I got styled into I have to say that it doesn't look that bad on the picture, which is a good job really. It really isn't something that I would usually wear, maybe the trousers but not the top.

Marko - This is ticking all the right boxes. It's got volume, it's bright and patterned. There are a lot of statement pieces, though - I would have styled the palazzos with a neutral vest. But Rachel pulls this off with confidence.
Pete - Rachel looks great in this outfit. It's a bold look, but she seems comfortable - glam but not high-maintenance.
Dan - I’m not keen on this. It covers up her fab figure and does her no favours. Not a fan.

 The comments I got on both outfits were rather mixed from each of the guys, but I have to say that overall I cannot really complain as they did say some really nice things and as I always say everyone has their own opinions on style!
I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has been out and brought this copy of More! magazine and for all of your lovely comments on the photos - It really has been overwhelming and has made me feel a lot more confident with my style. I will be getting some images sent to me on a disc very soon so I will do a post on some of my favourite photos from that in the near future.

More! magazine Photoshoot Out TOMORROW


Hey girls :)

How are we all? Hope you are having a good start to the week, I cannot believe that the weather is actually nice and warm for once but shame I am at work - damn!

I just thought I would let you all know that my photoshoot with More! magazine will be out in the shops TOMORROW (Tuesday 2nd August 2011)!

Every Monday afternoon More! upload a sneek peek of their front cover to their Facebook page for us to all guess who will be on the cover and in the left hand corner you can see me (well part of me as they cut some of it off as to keep us all guessing). It also reads 'Men rate REAL GIRLS' beach looks' - which I had no idea about and I am totally nervous now ahhhhh!!
