How to Moisturise your Natural Hair

21 Nov

Never a truer word spoken. This was a concept completely new to me a couple of months ago – ridiculous – right? The OH drinks a ridiculous amount of water, my best friend drinks a ridiculous amount of water, my mother swears by it, but up until August I used to drink less than 500mls of water. I didn’t like the taste and found it boring.

After making a few life changes I started filling up a 1 litre bottle every morning and putting it on my desk, I have water next to my bedside table. I sit and have dinner with a bottle of water. When I go for things I REALLY go the whole hog (ask my mother, father or Sam – I’m a true annoying Aquarian).

So if you’re one of those that doesn’t yet get at least 2 litres of water a day, this is well worth a read. As Valley Fontaine is right – how can you have good hair if you put bad stuff in your body (not to mention the health benefits).

Now that I’m transitioning into natural hair this has never been more relevant.

Have a good weekend all. x

Knowing how best to use water is essential if you want healthy hair Water: the best form of hydration

Having well moisturised hair is a battle for many, but taking trying to fix the outside with hair lotions, potions and water could be a waste of time if your body is not adequately hydrated.  A healthy body is more likely to equal healthy hair.

Water makes up about two-thirds of the weight of a healthy body,.and nearly every aspect of our body’s function including our hair calls for the fluid.  Drinking enough H2O (water) maintains the body’s fluid balance, which helps transport nutrients in the body.

Hydration is so critical in your body: if you’re properly hydrated, you’ll see many benefits. Water is needed to absorb certain vitamins and it’s essential for healthy hair.

The European Food Safety Authority recommends that women should drink about 1.6 litres of fluid per day.

Please Don’t Change Sugar Puffs To Honey Monster Puffs…

22 Oct

Nanny state in full effect – why do people go getting involved in changing names – butt out!

Steve McSteveface

Favourite kids breakfast cereal Sugar Puffs is changing it’s name after 60 years to Honey Monster Puffs. As much as I love him I don’t want to buy Honey Monster Puffs – it sounds to me like he’s farted in a box, sealed it and is now trying to sell me a packet of his “air biscuits”. No thanks!

I hate it when things change their names…

Guess who’s back…

30 Mar

Yup, I’m back! It’s been four months since I last posted a blog post. FOUR MONTHS! Well I haven’t been hibernating under any rocks – that’s for sure – one look at my Instagram account will show you that I’ve been busier than ever.

Well… I bought a house! Yup – I’m all “growed up” ha ha. Continue reading

Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte – City of London

30 Oct


I made a bit of a faux pas – I went out to eat and I didn’t take photos! Imagine that! *covers face* In my defence it was a business lunch so it wasn’t really appropriate to take pics – also in the city of London with all of those toffee nosed stuck up City B-Wankers – it’s really not the sort of environment to take pics. I had to just tell you about my visit to Le Relais de Venise in Throgmorton Street, London. Continue reading

Oops I Did it Again…

3 Aug

It’s been another 3 months – ok more like four – since I last blogged. I am particularly aware of this as my work colleague Dan kept saying to me “Claire – two months”. “Claire – three months”.

Finally “Claire it’s been four months” eek. I have been blogging honest – for tastecard! That’s one heck of a busy gig. Free dinners at restaurants is a tough job! ha ha 🙂

Here are some of my favourite posts I’ve written recently for tastecard for you to enjoy and I PROMISE I’ll be better at this. FoodieClaire needs some love too…

Foodie Claire Break…

20 Feb

As you can see, I’ve neglected my blog for almost two months. To actually pinpoint how long it’s been makes me cringe. There have been some good reasons though.

A new year generally means a new start and January and February have been busy months for me.

Firstly I have a new job! Those that know me will know that I specialise in pay per click marketing. After 3 and a half years in my role I decided I was ready for change, and change I’ve found. I started a new job two weeks ago which I love. Bigger agency, more work, varied clients. One of my clients is a restaurant deal booking site and I grinned from ear to ear when I was told I’d be managing them! I also turned 31 last month. Not that this has anything to do with anything but thought I’d put it out there.

I haven’t been neglecting the cooking! I’ve made some fantastic dishes over the last couple of months which I’m about to showcase to you. Now back to the food…
