The shard was an amazing experience and fantastic views, my lychee martini was delicious!! (Had just the one as im getting old lol )
We then went for dinner at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant barbecoa http://www.barbecoa.com. The starters was amazing, small but very tasty (Pork cheeks) but my main was just average (ribs) however the view of St. Paul’s cathedral made up for this.
I had fantastic day thanks to my amazing loved ones 🙂

My hair has been looking a little dead,as I have been loosing some hair recently, and therefore wanted to try a volume shampoo regime. No one likes flat lifeless hair right?! My hair is not ultra thin, but nor is it big and voluminous, i would think its somewhere in between.
I saw John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo + Conditioner at boots part of as 3 for 2 offer, it sounded good stating it will make hair visibly full as well as being touchable soft. I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for 8 weeks now and I have not noticed much volume, maybe a tiny bit more but not noticeable. However, claims with this shampoo not stripping out your hair is correct as I have noticed it is a lot more gentle on my hair compared to other shampoos, I have also noticed less hair loss. Which is great. The conditioner is not very moisturizing and not as creamy as other conditioners.
Due to the offer I had also purchased John Frieda 7 day Volume in shower treatment. This is a treatment to amplify hair thickness for up yo 7 days. Now, I do not have one good thing to say about this product. It did absolutely nothing regarding thickness. I had followed all the instructions, but it did not even create volume the slightest bit for one day let alone for up to 7 days. In fact I had noticed the complete opposite – my hair became more flat and more greasy on my roots.
In my opinion , the smell of all these products are not very nice, I mean its not the worse smell, it is very tolerable, but it is a very dull odd smell that i can not describe.
Final Verdict: This product was nice and gentle on my hair but it had not created volume for my hair nor did it smell nice. This may perhaps work on people who have ultra fine hair, but I would not purchase this again. 2 stars out of 5
