Music festivals have been around for years, but it was Coachella that brought festivals to a whole new level. Music is now secondary to fashion, beauty and hair!

I’ve just discovered a new drugstore brand and I’m in love! Let me be clear,  Garnier is not new but I’m extremely late to the game (don’t judge).

I’ve been experimenting with a huge range of products: hair care, sunscreen and skincare. Hair I just cut…
