Mode enamel haul!

I went to the doctors today, and found out I have Bronchitis, the doctor gave me my prescription and I popped into the chemist. My local chemist had a massive brand new Mode nail enamel stand! I was so excited seeing it because I thought that when they sold out of mode last time, they wouldnt re-stock it, but thankfully they did and they were having a sale: 3 polishes for $6. I couldn't help myself! Here's what I got:

From left to right: Blueberry, Blue steel, Party crasher, Cool as, Coral (jelly), Hook me up, Parisian, Diamante and top coat.

Can't wait to try there baby's out. I think I'm going to go for the jelly coral with Diamante on top.

De Lorenzo silver shampoo for Blonde hair REVIEW

Now personally i am a De Lorenzo fanatic. I love how all their products are influenced by nature and they use as little harmful chemicals they can mixed in with  natural oils, protein and moisture to make a perfect combination which all products most importantly, have perfect PH levels between 4.5 and 5.5.

All 14 Novafusion colour care Shampoos are formulated with UV inhibitors to enhance your natural or professional colour, control colour fade 
or reduce unwanted brassy tones. Novafusion contains native plant extracts including Kakadu Plum and Rooibos, Birch and Willowbark extracts for soft, shiny hair.

This is nova fusions colour care shampoo in 'silver' (for blonde hair), it is a royal blue/dark voilet colour and at first i was scared to use it because i thought it would turn my hair blue, but that is not the case. I use my De Lorenzo moisture balance shampoo which cleans my hair first and then i use the silver shampoo after.

As i said before they use natural oils and plant extracts, which i find leaves my hair healthier compared to using supermarket shampoo. I prefer to use a brand that has as little harmful chemicals as possible because they damage your hair and make it brittle and break easily.
It helps prevent your hair from getting those brassy tones, which is especially good for us blonde girls because i hate having ugly orange tones.
There are two sizes you can buy - The 250ml and the 500ml. I think the 250ml bottle is good for new customers/users because it is a bit cheaper and it is the smallest bottle so if you don't like it you aren't stuck with a big waste of money and a lot of left over shampoo. I usually get the 500ml bottle because i find it lasts longer because it is bigger and I don't have to go and buy it every month.

The only con is the price. 
Because De Lorenzo is a salon brand not a supermarket brand it is more expensive. The retail price in Australia for the 250ml bottle is $25.00 and the 500ml bottle is $35.00. You can get them both from hair house ware house which is normally on the expensive side, or from a salon that stocks De Lorenzo but the price varies.

I would most definitely encourage all blondes to try this wonderful product. It is a great shampoo and works well on my blonde hair keeping it orange free, and also healthy, soft and strong.
