Whats on My Android

Hello everyone! So I have had some serious bloggers block recently , and I eventually decided on this, after watching a load of 'whats on my Iphone' videos on youtube. Now I was debating whether this would be blog worthy or not but I normally find these type of videos interesting, so I somewhat hope you do aswell!
I have a Huawei ascend g510 in black. The amount of phones I have gone through is ridiculous, but I must say without a doubt this has definitely been the  best one I've had .

Anyways here is my homescreen (clearly shows I didn't shoot all these pictures at the same time haha!)         This is my most used screen, so I'm not gonna show ye the other pages, cause those apps are just the boring ones( google maps, music, calculator..) I have 5 folders, Social, Photography, Media, Games, and Useful. The apps that aren't in folders are:                                    
-Clean Master(Tap Boost)- This basically gets rid of any junk on your phone and frees RAM, so if your phone is going slow it cleans it up! Really handy                                                                                  -AppDetox- This app has literally saved me from failing my exams. It does exactly what it says, so you pick the apps you want to 'detox' from and the length of time,all those apps will then be locked so no matter what you do it will not let you get onto them. Say goodbye to procrastination!             
-Wunderlist(the red app with a star)- An app for making to-do lists                                                                                                                                                       

Now onto the folders, first one SocialI dont think this folder needs much explaining!                              Facebook                                                              -Gmail                                                                    Twitter                                                                  -Youtube                                                                Snapchat                                                              -Instagram (follow me @denise_okaay :)            Skype          -Tumblr      -Viber                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
My Photography Folder
-Tags for Likes (easier way on instagram to put up hashtags on your photos)
-#square- This apps just lets you put up a full photo on instagram, without the crop, by putting a white box around it
-Square Instapic-Similar to the last one , you can just move the picture around in the white box
-Instamirror- You can mirror your pictures with this app

 My Media Folder
-Tabs- This is the ultimate guitar app, which you do have to pay for but I think it was only like 1 euro?
Well  worth it for any guitar players, shows lots of chords and tabs for songs!
-Shazam-  A well known music recognition app, put your phone up to a radio and it will find the song for you
-Mp3 Music Download- Download free songs!
-8tracks- Again another well know music streaming app like spotify! Love the variety of playlists on it!
-Netflix- My good ole netflix! For anyone whos been living under a rock, its a movie app/website

 Games Folder
For those times when I'm bored..
-Flappy Bird- Yes, I followed the posse, which was the worst decision ever, because its so addictive, hence why it was deleted off the app store!
-Hay Day- Hahaha this is embarrassing.. it's like farmville , have your own farm and you take care of it, strangely good haha?

Useful Folder
-Ticketmaster Cinema- Irish Cinema Listings!
-Google Translate
-Wiki How 

I know this post was nowhere beauty related, but I hope ye somewhat enjoyed it haha?
Thanks for reading :)

How I Maintain my Blonde Hair

Hello, from a wet and windy evening! It's been shocking weather in Ireland atm. My hair is blonde as you can see above in the picture, it is not my natural hair colour at all.. I have never got my hair dyed at the hairdressers, I have always used box dye. Because the upkeep of blonde hair is so expensive, here is my little routine to stop brassiness and the dreaded dark roots from appearing (sort of..) 

John Freida Tone Correcting Shampoo
I only really started using a purple shampoo a month ago, and oh wow has it changed my life. My hair had that awful brassiness to it, and it is meant to basically reduce brassiness and make your blonde brighter, so I use this once a week, leave it in my hair for 5 mins.
It also helps with reducing the appearence of my roots, which saves me from dying my hair every month.. Although the purple shampoos are brilliant , they are very damaging and drying,  which is why I only use this once a week!

Pantene Smooth And Sleek Shampoo

The days I'm not using my purple shampoo, I will use this.
This has been a favourite of mine for aages. I think, because the purple shampoo damages my hair, I use this to kind of repair the hair again. It leaves my hair so soft and shiny and really brings out the blonde in my hair

L'oreal Sublime Mousse Conditioner
 I know probably the worst photo ever.. But haha, this is the Conditioner that actually came with my L'oreal Sublime Mousse Dye. It is a fairly intensive conditioner, and I always put this on after either of the shampoos, especially the purple shampoo, as it leaves my hair so dry.
It smells of royal jelly too, and gives amazing shine!

Hope you enjoyed this post :)
