New Year... New You?

Hi guys! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you're ready to take on 2014! 

Personally I'm not one for New Years resolutions because I never stick to them. I'm also a firm believer in "if something's not right, change it". Why wait for a new year to change something that's making you unhappy? Seize the day and all that. 
People seem to feel obliged to diet, exercise, cut down on alcohol and just generally take care of themselves a little better. That's all well and good but why even bother if you throw in the towel within 2 months? 
I think that if you make a resolution then make a reasonable one. Something you can actually achieve. 
There's no point in feeling angry at yourself for not being able to change your whole life over night. 
Why not decide to make sure you thank that driver that let you cross the road or smile at someone who looks like they're having a bad day? If someone makes you happy, let them know. If someone makes you sad, let them know. 
Rather than changing your physical appearance, why not try to make life a little more enjoyable for yourself. 
Maybe it's time to cut ties with that person who makes you miserable? Do it. Maybe you'd rather have more nights in with your family than nights out with the girls? Do that too. 
Stick to your convictions and don't let anybody make you feel bad for who you are or how you feel. 
Make 2014 your year by becoming you

Hask Keratin Protein shampoo and conditioner review

About 3 weeks ago, I picked up Hask's Keratin Protien shampoo and conditioner.

Hask isn't a brand I know much about other than they sell lots of their products in Penny's such as smoothing oils, serums and other hair products. 

This pairing claim to "give damaged, over-processed hair a miracle makeover". 
I personally don't have very damaged hair as I chopped it into a bob last summer and I've been taking very good are of it ever since. However I do have quite frizzy hair, especially in high humidity. They also state that they can "reduce frizz and block humidity" with their Hydrolyzed Keratin infusion. 
I've found using these over the past few weeks has really improved the quality of my hair. 
The conditioner is possibly the most amazingly smoothing product I've ever used. My hair felt like silk after the first use. The shine was noticeable even before my hair was dry. 
For me, the only downside is that I have an extremely sensitive scalp and I have to use Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky shampoo before I can shampoo with this. 
If you have an extremely oily scalp, I can imagine you'd end up washing your hair daily. Maybe go for the conditioner only if you fit into that category. 

Both the shampoo and conditioner are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, alcohol and artificial colours. This made my heart do a little leap as I find it redundant using "conditioning products" that contain many drying ingredients. 
I love this shampoo and conditioner, they're good value for money at €4 a bottle. A little goes a long way, they smell delicious and work from the first use to make your hair glossy, smooth, shiny and virtually frizz free. 
I plan on doing a little more research into this brand to see what other kinds of products they do because I'm pretty impressed by both of these. 
I suggest you give them a try if you're looking to give your hair a little love this winter. :)

BRB, busy bee!

Just a quick post to say sorry for the lack of posts! 
I've had so many ideas for festive posts lately but between being incredibly sick, stupid personal stuff and the holiday shopping rush, I've had no down time to write about anything. 
Now that everything is calming down slightly, stick around for a Hask keratin shampoo, conditioner and smoothing oil review coming in the next few days. :)
