Coconut oil. The one ingredient hair mask

It is fair to say that we all like to have healthy looking shiny hair, but sometimes it can be a bit tricky to achieve. You may be growing your hair long, colouring it, using too much heat on it, or all of them! I've been guilty of all of them at some point. Last year I started experimenting a bit more with colour and have been having sort of highlights since then, especially through the ends, which has made my hair fairly dry and brittle.

A very simple and very delicious lentil stew

One of the best things about some of Spain's comfort food is that it is very healthy. Probably to make up for the other half of our comfort food which could give you a heart attack if eaten too frequently! I feel lucky to have grown up on the Mediterranean diet. It's fresh, varied, tasty and so good for you. However, this is something that I didn't particularly appreciate when I was younger, and I am not the only one. Ask any Spanish person about lentils and they will probably all tell you the same story. We hated them as kids but we were forced to eat them by our mums because they were so good for you. Then, suddenly one day as adults we started really loving them.

Stylish free downloads

I like to change the background of my gadgets quite regularly, especially my laptop. I spend so much of my days sitting in front of it that I prefer to have a bright image to cheer me up in the winter or a motivating quote. There are A LOT of free desktop wallpapers on the net, but so many of them are just a little bit bland or so absolutely full of images that it’s impossible to find what I want. Over time I have come across a few good websites that have plenty of choice but their selections are much more the style I like!

This blog is my absolute favourite! The dress your tech posts are full of really colourful backgrounds not only for your laptop, but also tablet, phone, etc. There is a mixture of interest patterns, bright florals and motivational quotes that aren’t twee at all. I couldn’t love it more. I also follow DLF on Instagram as she is always posting lots of bright photos which are straight up my street.
