Want the latest bracelet craze? Shamballa’s seem to be sweeping the nation, enticing buyers with their sparkly beads and eye-catching colours. They’re also very popular amongst celebrities, with the likes of Ameila Lily, Matt Smith and Justin Bieber all sporting the look, its only natural to want one or two. Or five.

The original platinum Shamballa braclet is VERY expensive, (I’ve seen some for £700) but luckly allloy ones have been produced,  and they’re only a fiver! There are loads of tantalising colours (above) but the most popular one in london is the light blue beaded one. You can also choose them by style. There’s the coloured sparkly ones, but also heavier black metal balls to add as well. Personally I prefer the glitter of the sparkly beads, but they are a little more expensive. (Roughly £2.59 for the one sparkly bead, £4 for the full bracelet.)

I got mine from a Ebay seller here. They shipped it quickly, I literaly got mine the next day :).

Dry Shampoo Anyone?


This morning I had peel myself from my bed with (Shock horror) greasy hair! I had no time to rush into the shower but, in the back of a draw was a can of Batiste Dry shampoo. I’ve got Clean & Classic, which was great. When I sprayed it into my roots, my hair looked white and ghost-like (freakout)! But as soon as you scruff up your hair and brush it back out, no one will know you faked that soft I-just-Came-Out-The-Shower look. Theres loads of different dry shampoos, Lee stafford is also quite good (if not a little bit pricey).

Heres all the Dry Shampoo’s avaliable from Batiste, £2.99 : Cherry, Spicy & Sentual, Wild, Clean & Classic, Coconut & Exotic Tropical, Dark & Deep Brown, Big & Bouncy XXL Volume, Light & Blonde and Floral & Flirty.

Pros:

  • Great for a bad hair day
  • Relitively cheap
  • Smells good
  • works well

Cons

  • Will only work for roughly 24 hours
  • Unless you brush it out, you may have a weird white mist over your hair
  • Not as good for your hair as the traditional shower
  • Coloured dry shampoos may look uneven
