Mini Benefit Haul!

Hey guys! Today I celebrated (heavy sarcasm) one year of being a corporate slave. As though my internship wasn’t as good as full-time (which makes it nearly two years) but let’s not go there. To commemorate this special day I toyed with the idea of calling in sick. But I didn’t. They’re clearly lucky to have me.


I’ve recently been a victim of the aisle of doom at Sephora, as you can see. I went in just to have a look… well alright maybe not. I went with the agenda of picking up something.

Before I get into this, here’s a quick lowdown of what my hair is like: I have naturally straight hair, which is quite fine but I have lots of it so volume at the ends is not a problem. It’s the roots which become intolerable within a day of washing (sometimes even the same day!), and the greasiness tends to wear my hair down overall. I recently got highlights but I don’t specifically buy shampoo and conditioner formulated for coloured hair, I’ll just pick up anything that promises volume.
