What Amanda Wore | Angel Sleeves & Slashed Knees

Jeans & Shirt: Miss Selfridge / Bag: Primark / Kimono: New Look / Converse: Gift

Oh, isn't this shirt just beautiful? When I spotted it in Miss Selfridge, I just couldn't leave it behind. The delicate petal print, the angel sleeves.. oh I adore it. I already own a few shirts in this style and I couldn't deny another one, especially when it's this lovely. I'm all for chiffon shirts at the moment. My wardrobe is about to burst with my growing collection and these Miss S ones are by far my favourite.  I wore it with my newest jeans that I bought in the sale and oh my.. they're so comfy and so soft, new favourite jeans! I love the slashes in the knee too - I think I'm actually on trend for once!
I wore this look a few Sundays ago when me and my boyfriend spent the day at IKEA, browsing for new furniture to my forever working progress bedroom. I'm all for comfort, especially when you;re walking lots and this combo was a favourite of mine. I can't wait to style this shirt with skirts and shorts in the summer!

What Amanda Wore | Mint & Dots

Dress: Topshop / Jumper: Topshop / Scarf: Primark / Boots: Primark

I wore this outfit a few Sundays ago, when we were lucky enough to have a sunny day. It was still a little chilly, so instead of wearing a cardigan, I styled my favourite casual dress with my fluffy mint jumper instead. I'm not usually a fan of the jumper-over-the-dress trend, but I thought this worked really well and added a pop of colour to a would've been all monochrome outfit. To jazz this outfit up even more, I added my new favourite scarf. I bought this last month and have been obsessed with it since! It's full of every pastel colour, and is so easy to throw on over outfits like these. 
I'm seriously loving pastels again.. as you can see from my past two outfit posts! Especially mint and white. I'm on the hunt for the perfect pair of white jeans.. I know they'll look so good with my newest mint cami!

Dove | Intensive Repair Hair Mask

Dove is never a brand I think of when I think about haircare. I tend to stick to my favourite haircare brands like TRESemme, because I know and love most of their products. It was only when I was out shopping, I spotted this Dove hair therapy hair mask. I've been using up an L'Oreal Elvive hair mask that I'd just recently finished, so I decided to try this. The words 'regenerating' and 'intensive' won me over.
I eased it into my shower routine quite easily. I use my shampoo and conditoner as normal, rinse my hair as much as I can and then go in with the mask. The mask itself is quite thick and rich, so a little goes a long way. I concentrate mostly on the ends, which is where my hair is most dry and dehydrated. I finished by smoothing a little over my roots and through the length of my hair. I leave it in for a good 10-15 minutes (or even longer if I can) then rinse thoroughly, with cold water. Whenever I treat my hair to a hair mask, I always towel dry as much as I can, brush through my wet hair then let it air dry. After two weeks of use, I noticed my hair was alot more stronger. It wasn't breaking as easy, it looks more nourished and my dehydrated ends were hydrated and oh so soft! Not to mention my hair was left smelling amazing too. 

I'm trying to treat my hair to a hair mask every week, to try and restore my hairs health and get some moisture into my dry, damaged ends. In the last few years I've reviewed alot of hair masks, see HERE and HERE, but I think this one is possibly my favourite. I'm definetely going to pick up some more products from Dove, like the Dry Shampoo and Leave in Conditioning Spray!

Have you tried any haircare from Dove? Do you have any recommendations?
