Learn how To Vogue or Bust combats wintertime hair dryness with John Frieda

In the winter, Alexandra (To Vogue or Bust) is typically looking for ways to nourish—as far as beauty and style, that means taking care of the basics along with upping her hair treatment routine. Conditioning is crucial around this time of year, so Alexandra has shared her fave John Frieda deep conditioning products.

John Frieda‘s Frizz Ease® line has been a hair care staple for Alexandra for years. It’s effective and really helps bring hair back up to speed when it gets distressed from her winter mountaintop adventures in the snow. When her hair gets seriously dry and damaged, she uses the Frizz Ease® Miraculous Recovery® Shampoo and Conditioner on a daily basis and adds the Miraculous Recovery Deep Conditioner once a week, which uses Targeted Anti-Damage Technology to bring hair back to a healthy looking state after just one use!

Find out Alexandra’s full in-shower routine and some seriously minimal styling tips HERE.

December Book of the Month


Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
In 1843, Grace Marks was convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and Nancy Montgomery, his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders. Was Grace a femme fatale – or a weak and unwilling victim of circumstances?

After watching the miniseries I was left wanting to know more about Grace marks and Dr. Simon Jordan. The book did not disappoint, although Margaret Atwood admits this is fiction based on fact, I found being able to read some of the letters and news articles written about Grace made it feel more real. – Review by Amy Lynne

Book of the Month
Every month we will be featuring a new book to be showcased in our Book of the Month. Staff members and friends will be reading the book and posting their reviews. We’d love to hear what you thought of these books as well. Post your comments and let us know. Alias Grace is available at London Drugs along with many other great titles and is on sale for the month of December.
