redken hair cleansing cream: review

Redken Hair Cleansing Cream - RRP £13.65

Hello everyone. I've had a weird week; Tuesday was awful for a few reasons and then I started my new job on Wednesday so my brain is a bit all over the place. I'm working in a completely different industry and having done the same thing for so long it's been a bit of a shock as I've got so much to learn. Can't really complain though because that's exactly what I wanted. I'm really excited for the next few months and everyone I've met so far is lovely. It will probably mean a bit less time to focus on blogging though, but I have a few posts planned and pics taken etc so I'll be as active as I can!

Enough babbling, on to the review!

I bought this product because it had ridiculously good reviews on Makeupalley. I'd never really got on with clarifying shampoos as my hair is so ridiculously dry and coarse; they'd just dry my hair out more. For that reason I ummed and aaahed over getting it for ages and decided to go for it one day (a payday, no doubt). Read on for my thoughts!

(almost) fool proof poached eggs

Poached eggs have always been my favourite. Unfortunately, for years I was incapable of cooking them without ballsing them up. I simply could not get my head around it. And with so much conflicting advice on how to best do it; can you blame me? Thankfully, I've now got it pretty much down pat, using a combination of methods, which may seem like a bit of a fuss, but believe me, it's worth it. Look at that yolk.

I'm aware that there's already a ludicrous number of articles and blog posts with various tips on how to become a poacher extraordinaire, but that's kind of the point of this, so bear with me. I've had to dig through these tips and have combined them into a method which works for me 9 times out of 10.
