I'm back! Did you miss me?

So, this is the first time I have actually sat down and written a blog post for nearly a month now and it really feels like forever! Some of you may have wondered where I've been, or maybe you haven't even noticed which is absolutely fine! The truth is, I just lost all inspiration, motivation and my 'blogging mojo' and I just needed a little time away to let it all come flooding back. I guess you could say I took a little bloggers holiday.

I just couldn't think of anything I wanted to write about which was a horrible feeling and not one I liked having very much at all. When I started my blog a little under a year ago I had so many ideas for blog posts, I couldn't write them down quick enough and had endless lists I just created whenever something came to mind. The last month or so those lists have been pretty empty. The other problem I had was actually finding the time to take some decent photos that I felt proud of and liked enough to post. What with working full time, taking up new hobbies and applying for new jobs, I just couldn't find the time which really sucked. I also found I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to get at least three posts out a week if not more which is crazy!

However I am now back and am looking forward to writing some new blog posts and showing you guys what I have bought recently and a few products I adore. I have also decided to stop pressurising myself to do 'x' amount of posts a week or month. Its my blog after all and there shouldn't be a rule as to how many posts is okay. So yeah, the pressure is off!

If anyone else is struggling with writers block or you just feel like you need a little break, then go for it. I highly recommend it. It just gives you a chance to think up a few new ideas and gives your mind a little rest. :)

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo

For someone like me with very fine and thin hair, finding the perfect shampoo to create volume and body is so important and something I am always on the hunt for. I'm always after something a little better then the last shampoo I tried. So my latest find is this thickening shampoo by Bumble and Bumble. 

This shampoo is by far the best I have tried for a really long time and I have been loving how its left my hair time and time again. It claims to make thin hair look thicker, tame fly aways and helps seal split ends which is exactly what I look for in a shampoo as well as giving me lots of volume. I have been using this now for about 3 - 4 weeks and have noticed a difference in how thick my hair looks once I've used this product. My hair doesn't look nearly as thin and the ends don't look sparse at all. It always doesn't leave me with any fly aways which is something I do struggle with when I use certain shampoos. I don't know if its helped with any split ends though, but I guess thats not as easy to notice. The other thing is not only does it do all that, it also gives me endless amounts of volume so my hair doesn't look limp or lifeless. 

This product also goes a long way, you only need a little for it to work its magic so I have found I am definitely getting my moneys worth. This shampoo is a little pricey at £18.50 for 250ml but you wanted to test it out before you splash out, they also do a smaller size for just £5.50. It should be enough to give you an idea as to whether you like the product or not and is also the perfect size to travel with too!

So if you have fine, thin hair and crave a little volume and the appearance of thicker hair then I highly recommend this shampoo! I would love to try the rest of the products in this range to see if it makes more of an impact. :)

Have you tried this range before? What did you think?
