The last four things – part 2

Following on from yesterday

3: Lush shampoo bar and tin

I have started using these Lush shampoo bars as a way to reduce the plastic I buy and because, once I started using them, I discovered how much better my hair feels. They do not seems to leave as much residue when they’re rinsed out, they last for AGES and I do not have to wash my hair as much (they also smell AMAZING)…win/win/win/win.

4: BOOKS!!!!

I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time stood in front of the book shelves in a few charity shops over the last few days…my purchases are below. These books cost me the grand total of £3.56 and for that price I am able to take a chance on authors I have not read before (2 of the ones below are new to me). The joy of reading in this way is two-fold. I am supporting charity with my purchases but I am also exploring the possibility of finding a new author (or two, or three, or….) who I will then go on to support by buying their books new, from Hive NOT amazon (I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this before but buying from Hive gives you the chance to support your local High Street bookseller too).

There will probably be a review post of these when I’ve worked through them…something for you to look forward to 🙂

  1. I definitely look forward to the reviews! Sharp Objects sounds intriguing and The Old Ways looks pleasant and worthwhile.
    That Lush shampoo bar is something I’ve never seen, seems nifty. I wash my hair once every other week so not often but I bet something like this would do wonders for its health and shine especially since what I’ve got right now is something cheap that is drying out my hair horribly. A shampoo bar though… I never would have thunk it.

  2. It does feel weird the first time you use a shampoo bar, a bit like washing your hair with soap (which I was always warned never to do) but it lathers up just like liquid shampoo so you soon get over it. I am a little odd about my hair anyway, if my hair is clean I can face the world, if it isn’t I cannot. Shampoo bars are worth a go though!
