Moo Free Chocolate

I've been dairy free for years now, and this past year decided to go vegan for health reasons but also because I love animals. One thing I have missed is a nice chocolate that isn't just dark chocolate. I got sent this Moo Free Orange Chocolate bar to sample, and it completely passed my expectations! The orange pearls gave it a crunchy texture and orange tangy taste. This is perfect with a cup of tea, and a good book! My two children, aged 8 and 6 also gave their verdicts on the moo free bar. Dylan - "It's a creamy chocolate." Evie - "It tastes like Christmas chocolates!"
It's definitely a new fave in our house, guilt free, and didn't flare my illnesses thanks to the non dairy!

Lush Hair Extensions Deluxe Clip In Extensions

I love hair extensions, and as someone who constantly changes their hair colour, it's important to me to find decent quality hair that can also be dyed using semi permanent hair dyes. So I was very excited when Lush Hair Extensions sent me a set of their Deluxe clip in extensions to review.
The extensions came in a light blonde shade, so that I would be able to dye them with a semi permanent hairdye to match my turquoise coloured hair. This set is the 18" length, and my first impression was "Wow! This hair is so soft and thick!"
So this is my hair before the extensions. A good length but not as long as I'd prefer!
And my hair with the clip in extensions! They took the dye perfectly so I'm really happy with how well they blend with my own hair. They're silky soft and really look lovely and thick. The clips themselves are strong and don't slip down my hair, and are comfortable which means even after wearing them all day, they didn't need rearranging. In fact, after a while I forgot I was even wearing clip ins and almost forgot to take them out at bed time!

I can't wait to try out some fun long hair hairstyles soon.

Rachel, the Space Princess

 I tried out messy hair buns last week, and combined with my hair colour - faded Directions Turquoise and my grown out roots, I felt like the space princess I've always wanted to be! So to complete the look I wore this pink and purple planet hair clip from Janine Basil. This is certainly a look I will be doing again!
