It's oh so quiet

I've been quiet, I know. I'm trying to work out what I want to do with this blog. Writing posts here has stopped being enjoyable for some reason. Maybe its because I got a bit bogged down in reviewing stuff, I don't really know.

I'll come back at some point I'm sure, but for now expect it to be a little quieter around here. I get the feeling that my other blog might pick up a little more but maybe not... I never really settled there either.

I'll still be checking out other peoples blogs and commenting though I'm sure :)

What do you want from me?


If you have a little look to the right -----> you'll see a little poll asking you what things you'd like to see more of on Sparkle and Shade. I figure that seeing as you're reading what I'm chatting about, it'd be nice to know what sort of things interest you.

Also, if there's something that you'd love to hear me blog about (my favourite recipe, our vegetable garden, my top tips for making models out of the weird wotsity bits that you get in parcels these days etc) then do just drop me an email!

The poll will be open for a week and you can pick as many answers as you like

Thank you :D xxx

Lovea Moroccan Argan Brilliance Shampoo Review

Hello! This is the last review for my current box of My Pure goodies - I have to say, I really am excited about getting my next box. The things in this package have been surprisingly good - one of the things I've really like is that they're the sort of products you wouldn't automatically think about buying (maybe because the packaging isn't "cool" or because they're not big, well known brands or maybe just because they fall into the realms of natural products) but that actually they're a lot better than loads of high street brands I've tried.

Anyway, here's my thoughts on the Lovea Moroccan Argan Brilliance Shampoo
So first things first, I was very, very wary about using this shampoo. I have a horrendously sensitive scalp and It'll flake, itch and go generally scabby at the slightest thing *coughfaithinnaturecough*. Anyway, for the sake of all things blog shape (and knowing that My Pure wouldn't attempt a lawsuit if I said it was utter rubbish), I gave it a go. And you know what? I flipping love it! No, seriously. I have this on our shelf next to Lush Daddyo (my normal shampoo HG) and I just find myself reaching for this every time. My scalp is fine, my hair is incredibly shiny and full of life and even in the hot sticky weather of a couple of weeks ago, my hair doesn't seem to get greasy quickly at all. It also smells gorgeous!

I also did a wee bit of research about Argan Oil and according to Wikipedia (that oh so reliable fount of all knowledge) it's got great anti-ageing properties. Not sure how that quite affects my hair, but if I have a nice youthful scalp I guess that's never going to be a bad thing.

The bad points? I have to use quite a bit to get it to properly lather in my thickish mid-length hair, but that's not really unusual for me.
