Here I thought Spring was on its way but it appears the weather was just teasing us.  It's a little bit chilly today so I pulled out my favourite felt hat and chambray top to run a few errands.  What do you think? xxx

I might be jumping the gun but I'm starting to plan outfits for spring and summer.  If you have me on Instagram (@arumlilea) you will have seen that I've definitely got the beach on my mind.  I can't wait for some fun in the sunshine with good friends.  Le bf and a very dear friend have planned to celebrate their birthdays at Jo'burg Day which will be our first spring celebration.  I can't wait!  I may have even bought a flower crown in anticipation.

To compliment the spring feeling I've been experiencing, I pulled out my favourite neon sweater and wore it with some very pale bare legs.  (Side note:  please excuse the bruises, I'm still mastering blood thinners.)  It may not be spring yet but with this colour I already feel one step closer.

Inoar Professional Extreme Premium Oil

Having long hair I find it's really important to take good care of it.  Good shampoos, conditioners, treatments and serums are an absolute essential.  I was recently given to Inoar Professional's Extreme Premium Oil to try out and I couldn't wait to share it with you!

This hair oil contains myrrh, argan, macadamia and rose imperial oils which have stood the test of time in terms of hair care.  These ingredients also mean that this oil has the most beautiful fragrance.  It is perfect for treating split ends, nourishing dry hair or making frizzy hair more manageable.  I generally use it after washing my hair while it is still damp but before styling and then every couple days I will just apply a little to my ends.  It is a non-greasy oil which means that my hair absorbs it so quickly and doesn't leave any residue behind.   My hair is loving it and I love how such a little bit (one pump) goes a really long way.  This 50ml bottle is bound to last me a long time.  Here's to many more good hair days!

Inoar Professional's Extreme Premium Oil is available in salons and spas from September 2014.

I fell in love with this Banana Republic scarf at the store launch last week.  I think it's so beautiful that I wanted to play up its beauty by wearing a simple outfit and letting it do all the talking.  With my hair pulled back and a great pair of sunnies I was good to go run errands.  What do you think?
