Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo

While it would be wrong to say this shampoo saved my life, it's honestly the best shampoo I've ever used. Hands down.

I was so excited to try this cleansing oil shampoo by Shu Uemura. The concept sounded right because I need something that does'nt strip my hair of oils but it needs to properly clean it. My hair is limp and greasy within two days and I don't want to encourage more greasies by over washing.

It must have been fate because I managed to buy this shampoo from the hair salon upstairs in Selfridges and they don't normally stock this product. A bottle just happened to be there (sent mistakenly) and they sold it to me anyway.

One pump does the cleaning job marvelously and my hair feels soft and full of body afterwards. (I use two if my hair is really disgusting.) It has a pleasing floral scent. And best of all, it's the only shampoo which does'nt get me flakes or itchies. THE ONLY. I LOVE THIS SHAMPOO!

Mine cost £35 which is ridiculously expensive for shampoo so try to get it cheaper on online. You if you have fine oily hair like me, you won't regret it!

Vintage Favre Leuba Watch, Satchel Bag and Compact

I could'nt believe my luck when I found a Favre Leuba watch for £6. Actually, I've no idea when it comes to vintage watches but I could'nt resist this style. 

It was found with an outdated white strap and was'nt working. So I took it to the cheap watch repairer down the street. They were a friendly Afghan couple who shared an area with a mobile phone shop. 

The man opened the watch and said: "You don't need a new battery. This is a windup watch!" 

What a surprise! I took a closer look and saw tiny rhythmic moving parts. 

It needs winding every one to two days which is quaint and old fashioned. After all the years, it still runs like...clockwork. (Sorry.)

I was told the watch was older than me. In fact he liked it so much, he offered to buy it. Of course I said no. 

I picked this caramel leather strap from a basket of what looked like 100 random watch straps. The replacement only cost £5. 

I love over-the-body bags but my current one is too small to carry a book. I found this for £15. It's beat up and aged but that's how I like tan leather bags. 

Stratton Powder Compact from Ebay. Not to powder my nose but because it's gold and has pretty stars. I want to start a collection!

So old school. I love it.
