My hair has been ridiculously dry lately, possibly for years now as I rarely go to a hairdressers. (Normally I just cut my fringe, which is acceptable in my eyes.) Which means my hair is pretty much dead. I also constantly dye my hair to maintain the red so it is pretty dry and damaged. But since working at Lush I’ve found a couple holy grail products that have made my hair much better. Both H’Suan Wen Hua and Jasmine and Henna are meant to be used as a trichology treatment. Which means, you put the entire pot onto dry hair and leave it on for twenty minutes, although, I tend to leave them on overnight. Not only does this add a lot of moisture and help prevent split ends, it also makes my hair calmer and easier to work with for the next couple days, if not longer.

Lush is a place where most people would LOVE to work, and often with such big companies there are unshapely t-shirts, or a very strict uniform. Being Plus Size and sometimes body concious means that as soon as I think of a career, I immediately think of the uniform, so when I found out that it was just black and white clothing, I was incredibly happy. Black is incredibly slimming as it is but being able to wear tailored, more fitted options, lace, chiffon, leather, means that I never get bored. After a recent shopping spree I have managed to find my new favourite work outfit….. First of all I have to point out that I JUMPED with excitement after finding this cardigan. Waterfall creates a much slimmer silhouette on me so teamed with shoulder pads and in lace, I didn’t blink an eye lid at the £29 it cost.…
