Blogosphere Magazine || Review

Blogosphere Magazine is pretty hard to find and when you ask if a certain shop stocks it, you get the funniest look in the world. However, don't give up preserver and when you find you won't be disappointed There's a list of stockists here. I had heard about Blogosphere magazine for a while but had never really done my research and then they released Issue 11 with Zoe on the front and the blogosphere went mad for Blogosphere (lol)!
I picked up my issues from a website called Newsstand which helpfully stocks older issues, I picked up issue 11 and issue 3 in my first shop and then when i'd read them, I ordered 3 more with some of my favourite youtubers and bloggers on the front. You can buy them from Blogosphere itself but issue 11 was always out of stock!
So the magazine is written by bloggers for bloggers and features an array of topics. There are interviews, articles about SEO and blogging rules etc and pieces by bloggers sharing their favourite blogs and photography accounts. Since reading them, I have discovered so many good blogs to read and lovely people to follow. I love the fashion and beauty edits and the inspiring interviews with different bloggers - big and small!
Along with the magazine, Blogosphere also host events and workshops for bloggers. If you choose to subscribe to Blogosphere, you can also receive discounts on ticketed events and more! There are 4 different subscription packages that you can buy, details are on the website.

Blonde Hair Care || Tips & Tricks

For the past year or so, I have slowly been having my hair dyed lighter and lighter, The whole process started as balyage and now i'm not really sure what happens. I've started having my natural roots lightened too! However all that dye makes it hard to maintain, the blonde has taken a hell of a lot of bleach (I get it dyed every 6-8 weeks) so obviously I need to look after it.
I have a super sensitive scalp so I stick to a medicated shampoo, again this isn't great for coloured hair as it is really harsh but there's not too much I can do about that. That being said, I really focus on the conditioning and treatment out of the shower. For conditioner I use a mix of two, the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Conditioner (£6.99). This smells incredible and does a really good job of keeping the blonde looking healthy. The conditioner is a kind of purpley colour which takes the brashness out of the colour. The other conditioner I use around twice a week and is the Pro-voke Touch of Silver (£3.19). Trust me, this gets very messy! It's a bright purple shampoo that works by restoring damaged and dry hair. I wouldn't recommend this for everyday use though, just once or twice a week.
Once I'm out the shower, the treatment continues. Every other time I wash my hair I use the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Tone Correcting Conditioning Spray (£8.99). You shake the bottle to awake all the components and than spray onto the ends of my hair. It helps to banish those nasty, brassy tones and I will say it does a really good job. Finally, I make sure I always use a heat protection spray. My one of choice is the Lee Stafford Original Heat Protection Shine Mist (£6.49) as it smells beautiful. I spray this on towel dried hair and then again before I use styling tools. I try not to blow dry my hair too much (controversial, I know) especially if I wash it at night but I always brush it before I go to bed. If i'm going out then I will blow dry it about 80% and then leave the rest to dry naturally. I then style it however I decided, my current favourite is the Chopstick style although it takes soooo long to achieve!

How do you care for your hair?
