We meet again...

So 3 month later and I thought I would revisit my poor neglected blog. Life has just been so hectic that I've just not had the time to sit and do posts but now that everything's settled I've made a promise to myself that I will blog more often. This was really just a wee update and I will be back on Wednesday with a new post 

Thanks for reading.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Straightening Blow Dry Kit...

Today I was in poundland having a look about when I came across this Schwarzkopf got2b straightening blow dry kit, I had a read at the back of the box  to see if it could work for me and it does seem like the perfect product for someone with unruly hair.  It states "got2b play it straight will revolutionise styling as you know it ! This 2 step do it yourself kit allows you to take smoothness to a whole new level - and you can experience the lasting effects for up to 10 washes after just one application" 

Step one is a smoothing serum you apply on to  washed towel dried hair  and leave to process for 20 mins while combing through every so often then rinse.  Step two is the sealing cream  you apply onto towel dried hair after rinsing the serum out leave to process for 10 mins whole combing through a few times  and then rinse. 

 It says do not use on hair that is permed, bleached, highlighted or relaxed, do not use on badly damaged hair, and do not use if your hair is coloured.  Now my hair has been bleached recently,  is coloured and is in quite bad condition so I do not have a clue why I bought this ! I think I just  wanted it because it was so cheap haha.  I did a quick google about it and found a good few reviews saying it completely ruined their hair and made it look and feel as if it had been bleached. So safe to say it completely put me off using this product especially because my hair is already in such a state my hair would probably fall out so it's a risk I am not willing to take. I just thought I'd let you know that this product is in poundland incase anyone is brave  enough to try it ! 

Thank you for reading.

P.s I also noticed in poundland  they had the Schwarzkopf got2b dry shampoo which might be worth picking up.

August Favourites

I didn't get the chance to do a July favourites as I was so no well I didn't actually buy anything new or use anything to say it was my favourite that month.  I cannot believe we are into September, I know everyone has been saying its flew in so I'm glad it's not just me! Can't believe it's 4 month to Christmas, I remember last christmas as if it was only the other month! Anyway my August favourites are as follows

Barry M gelly nail paint - since I bought my first one in June I have been loving these so much and have bought another three in shades , Greenberry,papaya and blue grape. I really recommend these they have such a great colour range and quality and are a good price.  You can pick these up from superdrug or boots for £3.99 (Superdrug are doing 3 for 2 on Barry M & Boots are doing buy one get one half price on Barry M nails)
Papaya & silver multi glitter 

Barry M nail paint, Silver multi glitter - this is my first barry m glitter polish and I can't believe I've been missing out ! I'm always so disappointed with glitter nail polish but this didn't disappoint at all. I use this for just an accent nail on each hand as it gives a full on glitter nail with two coats it's  completely opaque. I can't wait to pick up more. You can pick this up from Superdrug or Boots for £2.99 
(Superdrug are doing 3 for 2 on Barry M & Boots are doing buy one get one half price on Barry M nails)

Simple cleansing lotion - i bought this a while back but only started using it in August as my hot cloth cleanser ran out. It's actually a really good cleanser and as you would expect from Simple it's gentle on the skin and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. You can pick this up from Superdrug and Boots for £2.99 ( Superdrug have this on offer for £1.99 at the moment)

Dove beauty hand cream - I always moisture my face and body but I always forget about my hands and so I decided to buy a hand cream to try and get into the habit of moisturising my hands.  This one from dove is actually really good, sometimes my hands can feel tight and dry but this has sorted it right out, it's fast absorbing and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy. You can pick this up from Superdrug & Boots for £3.49 (Superdrug have Dove hand creams on offer for £1.79) 

Random fave ...


Maltesers teasers - Yum !

Favourite Hair Products...


My favourite hair products at the moment are as follows. 

Superdrug dry shampoo - I was needing a new dry shampoo and came across this on buy one get one free offer so thought I'd give it a go. They have 6 different fragrances so I picked floating on a breeze and head in the clouds and they are lovely and not to much of a heavy sent for something for your hair. I really like this dry shampoo and it does what it's meant to and also doesn't leave a white powdery colour when I've sprayed it so can't say anything bad about this products. You can pick this up from superdrug for £1.99 and at the moment Superdrug are doing buy 2 for £3

Percy & Reed finishing polish - on the back it says " this gentle styler containing horse chestnut extract gives you a soft,flexible hold while sunflower wax gently moisturises"
I got this free from glamour magazine a while back and have only recently started trying it out and I really like it. I usually just put a pea sized amount in my hands and rub together and distribute through the ends of my hair once I've straightened it to help keep flyaways away and it does the job and it also comes in handy to use instead of hairspray when I have my hair up in a pony. 
I've had a look online and you can pick this up from www.beautybay.com for £8.50 (usually £10.00) with free delivery. 

Argan oil conditioner - Ive been wanting to try something with Argan oil in it for a while so when I seen this I thought I'd give this one a go. I'm not sure how much percentage there is of Argan oil but I'm not really to bothered as I really liked this anyway, my hairs in pretty bad condition at the moment due to bleaching my hair the other month so I've been looking for stuff to help give it some shine and make it feel a bit less dry and this conditioner definitely helps with the dry part of my problem. I also seen there is a shampoo and a little bottle of oil in the range so I think I'm going to pick those up and give them a go. I got this from Savers for £1.00 and Ive also seen the range in Home Bargains although I am unsure of the price but I'm pretty sure it will be round the £1 mark anyway.

My addictions... Boxsets

I thought I would start getting back into the swing of things on my blog by doing something different and telling you about my two favourite boxsets. 

Sex & the city - I never actually watched sex and the city but after watching the two films and loving them I decided I needed to watch the programme and got the boxset for Christmas and i was addicted! id set out to only watch one or two and then end up watching a full disc haha. I'm pretty sure most people have watched the programme or heard of it so probably no need to talk about what its about but I totally recommend it for people who haven't watched it,  it makes you laugh, it makes you cry, you find yourself agreeing on most of the talk about men and seeing all carries pretty fashion choices is a pretty good bonus in my books too. 

Ghost whisperer - my mum had watched all this on tv and recommended it to me so I picked up each series one by one from eBay for a couple of pounds each. I literally watched all 5 series within like two month I was addicted, I sometimes actually sat up to all hours just lying in bed watching it (living the exciting life haha) it follows the life of a woman named Melinda, who seems to have a pretty normal life except for the fact that from a young age she has been able to see and speak to ghosts. She uses her "gift" to help ghosts who have been earthbound because of something holding them back so she helps give them closure by speaking to their loved ones or what not and get them to cross over into the light. It's a brilliant programme and I no doubt will start watching it again soon and I really recommend it if you are looking for something new to watch but be warned you'll need tissues at times. 

I would probably have to say as much as I love sex and the city ghost whisperer is probably my most favourite boxset so far. I am on the hunt for a new programme to start watching so any recommendations are welcome. 

Thank you for reading


It's been a while.

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've wrote any posts which saddens me ! I really haven't been well at all since June so haven't been up to doing very much. I just wanted to let whoever reads this know that I will be back with posts in the next few days as I'm slowly but surely getting better ( I hope) and I haven't forgot about my wee blog. 

Thank you for reading.

Maybelline...Eye Studio Gel Liner

This was the first gel eyeliner I have tried and I love it. At first when I took it out the packet I nearly had a heart attack because of how small it is but it actually lasts a very long time. The first one I bought was over a year ago and I've only just recently had to repurchase it and that was with me using it maybe 4-5 times a week. It comes with a brush to apply the eyeliner which is good and this is the brush I use to apply it. The eyeliner itself is amazing! I have it in black but there are a few other colours like brown and black silver. I find it easy to apply as it glides on and it gives a bold black line that lasts all day without fading or smudging. It is the perfect eyeliner ! 

You can pick this up from superdrug and boots for £7.99.
