Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Hope everyone is well. On Tuesday I was lucky enough to visit the Richard Ward Salon in Chelsea for a pampering session. The salon itself is absolutely amazing, with many individual rooms specialising in cut, cleanse, colour and styling along with a spa and a waiting area with bar, it's amazing!  
   My hair is naturally a mousy brown, as you can probably tell from my roots and it's also very flat. I had a slight side fringe, which most often just hangs over my face and I'm never too sure how to style it either. So whilst at Richard Ward, stylist Matt suggested a full fringe, giving me a new look. 

I love trying new styles and have had a full fringe before so was more than happy to give it a go. As you can also see, Richard Ward do a range of products, including the Chelsea collection and the Anti-Ageing Argon products which are really unique. These products are currently available at Waitrose and I would definitely recommend giving them a go so you can achieve salon styles at home! 

These are a couple of the newest products which I had a little look at whilst in the salon. Both products smell amazing and I was impressed with the texture of the dry shampoo. Previously I have used dry shampoo and it leaves a horrible feeling in your hair, almost like dust and not to mention the bright white colour of it, this one didn't have that so this would be something i'd be keen to try out again. 
The products used on my hair were from the Chelsea collection, including the restore shampoo and conditioner, which left my hair feeling great even just after one wash.  
The Spritz was the perfect finishing touch giving my hair volume and shine, along with that gorgeous smell that goes with all Richard Ward products. 

I was so impressed with the final result. Matt created big loose curls by just using a hairdryer and a brush, something I don't think I'll ever have the patience or skill to do. I left the salon having had a fantastic experience and with bouncy, revived hair.

How is everyone? Been a while, again I know! 
Today is a post about Buckley London Jewellery. If you follow me on Instagram / Twitter(@amyclaireblaker) you will have seen my recent post of the blogger mail I received from Buckley London. I literally love the jewellery, it's gorgeous yet simple enough to wear as everyday pieces.

One Carat Stud Earrings: These are my ideal everyday earrings. They are Cubic Zirconia yet look very similar to a real diamond as the stones aren't too big. I'm so in love with them i've kept them in the past few days. Good news too, these are only £20.00 on the Buckley London website, which I will link below.

Mesh Bracelets: These are a very easy way to just add an accessory to your outfit. There are a variety of designs to choose from too, so you can mix and match with what style you prefer. I received two different silver ones and a gold bracelet with a dangly charm. They do really work well wearing all three together but I have to admit the gold is my favourite as it's different to what I would normally wear. 

Poppy Brooch: This is something really special and something I had seen quite a few people wearing, although I never knew where I could get one. The poppy also comes presented in a beautiful little black box, making it feel extra special. It's great this also helps such a good cause. The Buckley London Poppy has also been worn by many different celebrities.

There are so many beautiful pieces on the Buckley London website so go and take a look for yourself. 

I hope you've enjoyed todays post, I'll be back soon.

Lots of Love
