How To: Beachy Waves Without The Salt Spray

Paul Mitchell Neuro Liquid Review

My current go-to hairstyle is beachy waves, it’s easy to achieve, quick to do and also perfect for summer. My hair is coloured and so when it comes to styling my hair I have to not only protect the colour but stop it from drying out from products or heat from my styling tools. Remember when salt spray was all the rage? I mean it’s still quite heavily used but it really had its phase at one point. I was victim to it, spraying it all over, little did I realise it was drying out my hair the more I used and was actually making my hair in worse condition. Read More »

Redken Brews Men’s Hair & Grooming Range Review

Redken Brews Review

Redken Brews is the new one stop shop for men’s grooming. Coming off the back of the grooming boom and the increased popularity in men’s barbering Redken have created a dedicated line of products inspired by New York and classic barber shops.

It’s a huge range with three different categories; cleansers, styling and skincare. As you would expect from Redken the styling range is packed full of products, including two different pomades and a work hard styling paste, which is similar to my favourite Redken product, the 12 texture rough paste.

Here are my top picks from the Redken Brews Range. Read More »

‘Theatre Not Afternoon Tea’ At The OXO Tower

OXO Tower Theatre Not Afternoon Tea - The LDN Diaries London Lifestyle Blog

If you are a regular follower of the blog you will know I love my afternoon tea and this month Harvey Nichols have launched Theatre Not Afternoon Tea, a new type of themed afternoon tea at the OXO Tower. The afternoon tea is an array of sweet treats and cocktails carefully paired with a theatrical theme, taking inspiration from some of London’s top West End productions.

I popped down or is that up to try out the new afternoon tea. The OXO Tower restaurant, bar and brasserie is located on the eighth floor of the OXO Tower on the Southbank, which gives you an ample view across the river. It’s lovely and light inside and has a great vibe, we went on a Sunday afternoon and there was a female singer performing. Theatre Not Afternoon Tea as it suggests is not your usual afternoon tea. There are no sandwiches and no savoury options, this is all about the sweetness and the alcohol, so if either of those are for you then you will love it.  Read More »
