Sunday Pondering: How often do you wash your hair?

So today, having a lazy morning/afternoon/early evening (don't judge, it's sunday after all) I got to thinking about hair washing. This was mainly because I'm off out for dinner shortly and was thinking I should really wash my hair as I was struggling to think when I last actually did.

Now this has been a topic of conversation recently within my friends circles and it usually ends with me feeling pretty much like the odd one out so I'm asking, how often do you wash your hair?

My current hair washing products of choice.

I'll be completely honest, I washed my hair today, but I hadn't washed it since Wednesday last week (as in a whole 11days have past since I last washed it). Basically, I don't have greasy hair, at all! I washed it today just because I thought I should, not because I HAD to and I think this is where my friends seem to struggle. If my hair got greasy, then obviously, I wouldn't go 11 days without washing it, but why do it when it looks pretty much the same on the 11th day as it did on day 1 of washing. On average, I would say I probably wash my hair about once a week which I don't think is gross - well I wouldn't, I do it!

I do consider myself very lucky in that I don't have to bother on a daily basis - it would drive me insane, especially with the length it is at the moment!

So please, make me feel somewhat normal and let me know there's others out there can go for quite some time without having to wash your hair and it's not an everyday/every other day task for you!

p.s. I feel like I should just clarify that I do indeed shower everyday, I just don't wash my hair - that is held up in a very fetching shower cap each morning!

Baking up a treat

So, with the return of the Great British Bake Off, all I can think about at the moment is baking! I am by no means a good baker - I'm not good at all to be honest! I try, I try all the time but it just never turns out quite so well - I once managed to make a raw Bara Brith which the bf has not let me live down!

But I am determined and I'm going to give a few things a go and see how we get on - I thought I'd start easy and give Rocky Road a try - couldn't really go wrong thankfully! These were so tasty and went down a treat in the office! I followed this recipe which was pretty straightforward (although I didn't do them gluten free)! For those who are regular bakers, you're probably thinking how easy, but, if you're not used to it, these are an easy start!

 My favourite part of baking with chocolate!

I think chocolate brownies or chocolate cake will be my next treat! What's your favourite thing to bake?
