John Frieda Luxurious Volume Range

John Frieda Luxurious Volume

Luxurious volume in the title, yes please sign me up! My celebrity hair crush is Fern Cotton.  She has perfect voluminous hair and I love the fact it's short as many celebs have long locks.  Her hair is always amazing and full of volume.  Trying my "best" to achieve this look I have been using the John Frieda luxurious volume range.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 210 Unapologetic

Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Unapologetic
Revlon ColorBurst Unapologetic - Boots £7.99

Anything matte and I'm all over it!  I haven't been as excited for a new launch as the new Revlon Colourburst balms in matte and lacquer finish in a while.  I think Revlon have the best lip products out there, I am forever impressed with what they have to offer, their lipbutters are still one my my favourite products to use on a daily basis.

Sigma Brush Review UK

Sigma brushes are one of the most talked about in the beauty world and when my mum asked what I would like for Christmas these were top of my list.

Watching American You Tuber's (especially Jaclyn Hill)  I forever strive for the perfect blended smokey eye and perfectly applied blush so I did some investigation and picked my brushes.

Cala D'Or Mallorca 2014 - Location, Outfits, Hair and Makeup/Beauty Essentials

Me and hubby are just back from a wonderful time in Cala D'or.  We went with my family and it was so nice to get away from everything and completely chill out.  Cala d'Or is a holiday resort on the east coast of Majorca consisting of three principal areas: the town centre of Cala d'Or, Cala Egos and Cala Ferrera. It offers many small, fine sandy beaches including Cala Gran, Cala d'Or, Cala Egos, Cala Es Forti, Cala Serena and Cala Esmeralda.  Cala d'Or is approximately 45 minutes from Palma airport.

Klorane Shampoo for Oil Control

Klorane Nettle Shampoo Oily Hair

I am blessed with oily roots and dry ends, being blonde has its downsides.  Escentual put out a tweet a while ago asking for people with oily hair to get in touch to be in with a chance to review Klorane, an oil control shampoo with nettle.  I was delighted to be accepted and be able to try this as anything that claims to control this oil is a winner in my eyes.

Diet Chef - Week 4 Update and Final Thoughts

So week 4 is here!  I am a little sad to be finishing the plan and now seeing an empty fridge.  Having the option to pick what I wanted for breakfast, lunch and dinner did have its huge positives but I must save just after week 3 finished I did really start to miss cooking.  As mentioned previously I am an organised person and when time permits I love to write out my shopping lists and plan my week of meals but when the week is packed full then this is when Diet Chef played a huge part in me staying on track.  Up to week 3 my weeks were crazy busy and I was out the house 5 nights out of 7 so Diet Chef really came into its own.  Week 4 on the other hand was really quiet so on some nights I did miss cooking a nice meal and on the Sunday making a nice big roast dinner.  The plan does come with a handy little guide of recipes to cook at home should you wish to cook and I did cook a stir fry one night after the gym and it did feel nice to mix it up a bit.

A new Venture? Glitter?

This is a very exciting post for me and still a work in progress but I thought I would let you know what I have been up to lately.  I find makeup storage very boring and hard to find so decided to start making my own glitter versions, who doesn't love a bit of glitter!!  These are solid glass and are really weighty so no need to think that they would easily fall over.  I am doing a few different size options to suit all types of makeup storage.  These are priced under £14 (send me a private mail through the facebook page for more details).   The small square and small cylinder can be used for either makeup brushes or lipsticks.  Apologies that these pictures are taken with the flash, this is really the only way to show the glitter as without the flash it doesn't pick it up right. I have new glitters coming this week so give my Facebook page a like to ensure you are kept up with all the latest colours and styles.
