My Hair Routine to Create Big Curls

Leave a Comment

The last time I filmed a hair routine video was back in October last year, and since then I've made a few changes. 

I'm having a break from my beloved extensions from Inanch (nothing to do with the extensions, I adored them, but my hair finally decided to grow...fast!) and I've acquired some new hair tools and products, so I figured it was time for an updated video!

The Jose Eber Infrared blow dryer came to live with me a few months ago and I genuinely don't know how I lived without it before! It dries my hair so much faster than the one I was using previously, as well as using infrared and little heat therefore causing minimal to no damage. 

As usual, I'm still loving my Redken argan oil which has been a firm favourite in my beauty drawer for years now. I've also discovered the Richard Ward anti-aging argan elixir recently and it's perfect for smoothing and de-frizzing. I've found it's perfect for use on my annoying baby hairs that sometimes stick up (I can't be the only person who has this problem!).

Of course, after almost 7 years, I am still beyond in love with my Jose Eber curling wands which create the most perfect curls that last for days and days. I can brush them out and they remain thick and bouncy without dropping. Here, I'm using the 25mm size. 

Remember you can get 40% off EVERYTHING at Jose Eber using code "SHEGOESWEAR"! It expires at midnight Wednesday 27th May so get shopping before it's too late!!

I have a confession. Until recently, I'd been using the same hairbrush for the past few years. The handle had broken off because I once urgently needed it to fit into my clutch bag and there was zero other option other than to snap it off!!! Despite this, I still continued using it for months after. Last week I admitted to myself it was time for my brush to go, and my brand new and rather stunning (I never thought I would call hair brushes stunning but you have to agree) Tangle Angel hair brushes took their place.

I have the Xtreme detangling brush in black, the tangle cherub in pink and the cutest little keyring brush for quick fixes! Not only do they look so so pretty, they have amazing benefits. They have anti-bacterial and heat resistant bristles, but my favourite benefit is that they have anti-static properties to prevent fly away hair, which for some reason used to be such a problem for me!

Hello! I hope you had a fabulous bank holiday weekend! I had a lovely weekend catching up with friends, spending time with family and drinking lots and lots of prosecco!

I'm back at work today in the City and feeling more motivated than ever. Don't you just love that feeling? I've vowed to make some changes today and going forward, both mentally and physically, beginning with getting up extra early each morning. This will help me beat the horrible rush in the morning that always gets my morning off to a negative start. 

Apart from a few changes relating to work, I'm also going to start eating healthier and working out a bit more. I know, I know, it's one of those things I always say I'm going to do but never stick to, but this time I'm determined! I have 3 months until I'm back in a bikini in Ibiza so it's the perfect time to make a few changes to my diet and exercise. 

As well as a short week, it's also payday week! I'm going to treat myself to a new pencil skirt and have my eye on the navy one above which is made from good quality fabric to last me year and years. The polka dot dress above is also on my payday list and this will see me through Summer and into the Winter with tights. 

You can shop all the items below. I hope you all share my motivation this week and have the best week possible!

Mauritius Nights

Leave a Comment


Despite spending most days doing nothing but eating and sunbathing, the hours in the day flew by and before we knew it the sun had gone down and it was time to get ready for the evening. 

There were 3 restaurants to choose from for evening dinner, so we alternated between them each night. The buffet restaurant on most resorts we've been to before usually gets boring after a while, but each night they had a completely different selection. 

Our favourite was the Indian themed night. We love a good curry, and I could honestly say I had the best curry I've ever eaten on that night! It was completely different to the usual we order from our local takeaway. 

The food we ate throughout our holiday was nothing short of delicious and I never once had a bad meal! We're massive foodies so having good meals was so important to us, and thankfully we were very lucky. I may have come back a good few pounds heavier but it was soooo worth it ;)

One of our favourite placed to dine was the fish restaurant which was situated on the beach. I loved dining here as I got the opportunity to try different types of fish that I wouldn't normally get the chance to eat at home. The sushi was to die for too!


One evening as we were eating, a pirate ship began to make its way onto the beach and Mauritian dancers began to make their way towards us along the beach. I'm not going to lie I genuinely thought they were pirates for a split second (haha), but it was all part of the act and they performed a dance on the beach which got everyone up to dance with them!

After dinner, we made our way into the bar to begin my nightly strawberry dacquiri drinking routine. They were just so yummy I could have drank them all day and night long. In fact, I think I did just that a couple of days! 

Wearing: ASOS Dress | Oasis Sandals (available in black here) | Zara Bag

It would be rude not to make a pit stop at Cafe Lux on our way back to our room in the evening and our nightly coffee began part of a routine for us! Their specially trained Baristas made coffees that were good enough to be sold at Starbucks. The nesquik hot chocolate was pretty yummy too...

I got back to my room each evening to the gorgeous smell of lavender oils that had been sprinkled under my pillow whilst I was out. 

I don't know whether it was the oils or the strawberry dacquiris that sent me off to sleep within seconds, but whatever it was I fell asleep each evening with incredible holiday memories and awoke refreshed each morning and excited to make some more...

Holiday Hair Secrets & 40% off Jose Eber!!

Leave a Comment

I'm going to share with you my holiday hair secrets! Conscious of the maximum luggage weight I could take on holiday (which I still managed to go over on), I decided to only take a select few beauty products for my hair. These products consisted of my Jose Eber curlers and straighteners (obviously, they come everywhere with me), Richard Ward Keratin Smoothing Mist and my DGJ Organics Argon Oil.

I knew for a fact these products would see me through my holiday and make sure my hair remained frizz and damage free. And I was correct!

I have one confession. I barely curled my hair the entire time I was out there. This was purely down to laziness as I found myself rushing each night to get ready after spending far too long in the jacuzzi and with the humidity it took me a little longer than usual. Instead, I opted for straight and sleek hair and used my Jose Eber wet to dry straighteners which transformed my hair from damp to smooth in minutes. 

The Jose Eber straightners have thick plates which means I can straighten thick sections at once therefore it reduces the total styling time. 

Each day after styling, I used a small pump of the DJG argan oil and smoothed it through the ends of my hair.

Throughout the day, after a dip in the pool or when my hair felt dry from the sun, I was constantly spraying the Richard Ward Keratin smoothing mist. It contains argan oil and left my hair smooth and ultra shiny. 

Jose Eber are very kindly offering an exclusive discount to my readers of 40% off EVERYTHING! As you already know, I have been using Jose Eber products for years and adore how they make my hair look. I receive so many compliments! 

This is the perfect chance to get your dream curlers you've always wanted, with 40% off! Or you could treat yourself to the straightners or the amazing Infrared Blowdryer that dries your hair in minutes with no damage.

Just visit the official Jose Eber website here and enter "SHEGOESWEAR" into the discount code box at checkout to get 40% off! The code will be available for 4 days, and will end on Wednesday so get shopping and spread the word!!

Holiday Style: White & Beige

Leave a Comment
I first bought this suede skirt in the Winter months and wore it with a roll neck to London Fashion Week! I was determined to take it into the Spring/Summer months, so packed it in my suitcase and teamed it with a white crop top and beige block heeled sandals on one of the evenings. 

It's the perfect example of how you can take items that are on trend through the seasons simply by styling them with wardrobe staples. In this case, I've had this staple white crop top in my wardrobe for years and years, and get it out every Summer to pair with pretty much everything! High waisted skirts, jeans, under dungarees, everything! I originally got mine from Zara, but I've found a couple of very similar pieces below. 

I've also linked the beige sandals below, which also come in black. They're my dream holiday sandals. I live in heels but obviously didn't want to be wearing stilettos in the evening, so the block heel on these sandals is the perfect in between height. Love love love them!

Arriving at Lux, Mauritius

Leave a Comment
I wish I could rewind time and press play at the exact moment that photo above was taken! 

From the moment I stepped foot onto Lux Grand Gaube resort, I felt any problems and worries I had once possessed slowly drift away. Relaxation and calm took over me and the greatest feeling was knowing that was going to last for the next two weeks.

After a long and tiring 12 hour flight followed by an hours drive to the resort, I was feeling tired and achy yet excited at the same time. As our car pulled up to the entrance, the staff were already waiting outside for us and immediately took our bags and led us into the reception. There was no waiting at a counter to be checked in, we were given a seat and brought over some refreshments and a cold towel, before being taken on a tour around the resort.  

As the tour came to an end, she certainly left the best until last as we were shown to our room. My boyfriend had secretly upgraded us to the Junior Suite and surprised me as we walked through the door! I couldn't believe it as I swung open the doors to our private terrace. 

The views were breathtaking. 
Waiting for us was a bottle of champagne and a fresh fruit platter, just what we needed after a long flight and to toast the start of our holiday!

After unpacking our suitcases, there was only one thing left to do, so I put my bikini on, grabbed a Phoenix beer from the mini-bar and took my spot on the sun lounger!

After a quick nap in the sun to catch up on lost sleep, we decided to take a stroll towards the beach restaurant to grab a late lunch. 

The views at Lux are the most incredible I've ever seen experienced. 

Every direction I looked made me want to whip out my camera and take a photo. 

There are five restaurants to eat on the resort including the buffet, which leaves so many opportunities to try something different each day. 

One of our favourites was Abalone, situated on the beach, making it the perfect position to stroll over for lunch after a morning of sunbathing. 

I ordered the club sandwich and chicken salad pretty much every day, because they were  genuinely that good! When I fall in love with food (which happens a lot), it's hard for me to try something new over fear of not liking it as much! 

After lunch, we took a stroll around the grounds on our way back to our room and discovered the Tree of Wishes. I climbed up the stairs to the platform and read some of the wishes people had written on the pieces of origami and tied to the rope hanging from the tree. 

Some of the wishes had been there for years and years and it was lovely to read what people  from all over the world had written. What a lovely idea!

Back in our room, it was time to relax and slowly get ready for our first evening in Mauritius. 

One of my favourite things about our suite, second to the stunning view, was the giant jacuzzi bath with bay windows that looked out to the ocean. I sometimes spent hours at a time in that bubbling jacuzzi filled with bath salts, with a book and a glass of wine!

As I waited for the jacuzzi to fill up, there was a knock on the door. A man was standing there with a table full of different scented soaps for me to smell and pick from. He put my chosen soap's shavings into a little bag, tied it with some rope and handed it to me. Perfect timing before my bath!


Just before we left the room for dinner, I picked which scent I wanted them to drip under our pillows whilst we were out during the turn down service. I had a choice of Lavender, Ylang Ylang or Sweet Orange. 

It's small little gestures like this that really make you feel pampered and on holiday. 


I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow that evening, which was probably due to a mixture of sleep deprivation and strawberry daiquiris! We awoke the following morning feeling totally refreshed and ready to properly begin our holiday. 

I'll leave what we got up to in the evenings to another blog post, but in the meantime, I'm going to run myself a bath and pretend I'm still in paradise...

Weekly Workwear Picks

Good morning! This weekend has flown by and I can't believe it's Monday morning again. Why can't weekends last forever?!

This week's workwear picks are a mix match of styles and patterns. I've completely fell in love with the stripy skirt (featured in Elle magazine) and wrap dress. 

As you know, being the Mary Poppins I am, my work bags must be big enough to fit my entire life inside it, therefore I have my eye on the tassel bag above that can do just that. 

As usual, I still have a couple of long waistcoats on my workwear wishlist, including the navy one above. It will go with pretty much anything and I could wear it at the weekend too over jeans and heels. 

I hope you have a lovely week. I'm attending the Lloyds Rugby 7s on Thursday with work and have no idea what to wear. It's a rugby tournament but my attendance is purely for the social aspect, Pimms and BBQ!! The dress code is smart, casual and comfortable, so I need to raid my wardrobe tonight and put an outfit together that ticks all of these boxes.

What are you up to this week, anything exciting?

Summer Work Essentials

Leave a Comment
summer workwear essentials
The City is heating up which is the perfect excuse to buy some staple pieces for Summer. Any excuse to shop! 

I love switching my wardrobe from Winter to Summer. I put away my Winter coat in favour of a lighter coat in a bright colour, and I get out my nude Summer bag. 

The colour palette in my Summer wardrobe remains pretty much the same all year round, as I love neutral colours. Black, nude and grey dominate my wardrobe! 

When buying work clothes, I always stick to buying staple items that I can re-wear and create multiple outfits with. I'm loving long waistcoats at the moment that can completely transform a look just by throwing it over a simple outfit. I love items like that! 

Shirt dresses are so classic and chic, and can be worn with simple pointy heels and a statement necklace for an instant smart look. 

Another work wardrobe staple is a pleated midi skirt. They can be paired with a simple T-shirt or blouse and heels to look both professional and stylish. 

Having a few staple items in place, you only need a couple of additional items such plain T-shirts and blouses, in order to create multiple different outfits throughout the Summer months. 

I've found my favourites of each and put them all below in case you're looking for some Summer workwear inspiration. Enjoy!
