*The Hair Boss By Lisa Shepherd - The Detangling Mist Review

Image
*I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I was kindly sent The Detangling Mist by the Hair Boss* to try out. I have already tried out some of the other products from this brand which I loved and you can read my review here . Targeted to fix frizzy and damaged hair, its designed to strengthen and smooth strands as well as protect your hair by preventing breakages and deterring split ends. You use it on towel dried hair spraying it on the mid lengths and ends and then blow dry or air dry as normal.  It can also be used on dry hair to tame stray hairs.  Its like this product has been designed especially for me as I have dry, frizzy, unmanageable curly hair.  I use this product every morning on damp hair and it detangles my hair so that I can brush it without my brush tangling in any knots.  It really makes such a difference to my morning routine as I'm not struggling to brush out the knots in my hair.  I don't wash my hair every day as it makes it unmanageab

*Christmas is Coming - Gift Ideas - Carnovsky Animals Jigsaw Puzzle

Image
     *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I have to admit that I don't generally have the concentration span or the patience to do jigsaw puzzles, but what intrigued me about this Carnovsky Animals Jigsaw Puzzle* was the fact that it has three different images in 1 jigsaw and by using the red, green or blue viewers which are included, you can isolate each layer of the image, which makes for an interesting concept. You can also scan a QR code on the box to use the digital app which allows you to view the three different images through your phone. The puzzle is 50cm x 50cm and contains 500 pieces. It also comes with an artwork print of the puzzle which is a nice touch. Carnovsky are a Milan based art and design duo comprising Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. I can definitely think of lots of family and friends who would love a gift like this and its great for both family nights or quiet nights alone as the weather turns colder.  If you want to gift som
