Beach Blonde by John Frieda…

Ok, it took me a while and it was a planned delay.

I set out to try Beach Blonde products by John Frieda and because I wanted to see the complete change I needed to give the transition some time.

I can definitely feel a change, my hair seems less heavy and the products themselves feel much cleaner. It took me a while to work up a good lather with the shampoo in order to really get a good clean but once there it has proven great.

Sadly the conditioner is not detangeling as much as I need it too and I find myself struggling.

The amazing scent helps a lot as it’s very minty and fresh and the sea salt spray is by itself like a beach holiday in a bottle!

I haven’t however mastered that beautiful beach wave look with this spray and I don’t know if it has to do with the fact that my Scandinavian hair rarely keeps any style longer than a couple of hours, but fear not, I’m not giving up. And the scent alone is worth it.

I definitely will keep up with this product as I feel it keeps my thin hair much bouncier and not heavy with product.

If you have thin hair like me and don’t want heavy products the do give this a go :)

I saw this skirt at H&M a year ago or so but for some reason it didn’t fit the same then so I decided against it at the time.

It after that came out in different colours but not in black and I have been waiting and hoping for it to come back.

So why do I love it so much you wonder… It has a strict fabric which means no Marilyn Monroe moments, I rarely wear anything this short and voluminous due to that risk. And it looks amazing dressed up and down. Elongates your legs and has a structured woven fabric giving it a luxury feel.

John Frieda Beach Blonde…


I was told by my hairdresser that Pantene hair care is much too heavy for my fine Scandinavian hair, and I was then advised to try these Beach Blonde products from John Frieda.

I’m excited to see if it makes a difference as it promises texture and a feeling of fullness to your hair.

The cuff links…


So I found a blouse to go with my Burberry cuff links. The ultimate one would’ve had French cuffs but that will come later. For now I  did a little DIY on a normal blouse and it looks great.

It’s fun to have a little unexpected accessory :)

Organising my own closet…


I have a walk in closet back home in Sweden but not here in London, and I probably have the smallest closet ever made.

I don’t like to fold anything other than chunky knitwear or perhaps denims, I have no choice in this house sadly but to fold quite a lot of items.

I managed to convince the caretaker that we needed to remove the closet door as it wouldn’t open even halfway due to having a radiator cover in the way.

And obviously with the door gone I needed to make it look presentable and it was way overdue to actually re-organise for the summer season.

Jackets are in the back, all my dresses in the middle ( I wear them the most) and tops to the right.

Sadly I had to fold all my skirts and more basic tops. And all trousers, making the very best of a small space.

My more precious bags and shoes are kept in their fabric bags to keep them safe and then I put some hooks up to keep my clutches and handbags on.

It feels so good to have it organised, I did put up a curtain after the photos just incase I want to hide my clothes for whatever reason. Will probably not happen a lot as I love my well chosen clothes :)

The blouse…


I found a nice ruffled blouse to go with my Burberry Cuff links. I’m excited to see how it will be received by others.

You don’t really see a lot of ladies wearing cuff links but my friend who gave them to me said “if anyone can make them work you can”

Challenge excepted 😉
