Wantworthy - the latest wishlist trend?

So you all remember Fantasy Shopper and the hype that surrounded it, the ability to 'buy' items of your choosing from all of your favourite shops and make outfits with them. I remember wishing I could add stuff from any site, and have everything organised into events, or summer/winter wardrobes.

Wantworthy gives you the opportunity to do just this! All you have to do is sign up then add a 'WANT' button to your bookmark bar, then every time you see something you like you click the button. Wantworthy then adds this to your virtual wishlist and cleverly detects the price, description, picture and category of item (dress, shoes, denim etc..).

Then on your list at Wantworthy you can see the items you want organised by store, category or group.

I really do think that this is a brilliant way of categorising the things on your wishlist. I'm in process of  creating a 'Uni Wardrobe' list of things I'd like to take with me in September, but I've also started a beauty wishlist and a hypothetical 'I'M REALLY RICH' list!

Hope you all enjoy using the site, and make sure to send me your Wantworthy lists- I'd love to see the things your little hearts desire!

My adventures into SLS and silicone free hair products!

I officially renounce my SLS and silicone stuffed hair care!

There, I said it. It's blog official now so I can't go back on my word. The more I read about how damaging these nasties are for my hair, the less willing I am to use them. I looked into the no-poo method, but I've decided to ease myself slowly into this way of life by starting on a low-poo program.

I've recently had my hair cut from very long and ridiculously dead to rather short but super healthy, so I'm looking to grow it back out in as good condition as possible.

From now on I'll be using shampoos and conditioners with no:
-Sodium Laurel Suphate

I'll be starting my adventures with the Body Shop Rainforest Radiance Shampoo, along with the Body Shop Rainforest Volume Conditioner. I'm hoping that these will help me escape the dull hair, itchy scalp and frizz that I've come to attribute to SLS laden products.

I'll update soon with how I get on - wish me luck! Also does anyone else have any recommendations of products I could use that you've got along well with, I'm all ears!
