Finally got goodies!

Hi everyone, I have finally brought some goodies, I am saving for some hairdressing scissors so haven't been able to buy much, so this week finally I brought some things.

I brought these from my salon so I get 25% off but I will tell u the normal price.

All the products are made by Kevin murphy.

About Kevin murphy:
He is an Australian man that decide that all hair products have got to many plastics, silicone and that they don't wash out of hair easily, so he made his own brand that has no plastics or water soluble ingredients and that all the ingredients have essential oils or plant extracts in them so it doesn't irritate the skin.

The products I brought:

Heated defence: £14.49
contains wheat protein and Kevin murphy x-go complex for body and shine, used on wet or dry hair to protect from heat.

The.ultra.pack: £12.50
This has 2 products in one and is cheaper then buying 2 separate, has a shampoo and aasque which can be used as a conditioner aswell, I will make a separate post on it :)

Born.again wash: has ylang ylang and tangeriene essential oils in to moisture deep into tortured or chemically treated hair, apply when hair us wet and rinse out

Born.again.masque: has olive leaf, Shea butter, omega 3 and 6 to help chemically damaged hair apply and leave for 10 minutes

Then I brought this for my sister for her birthday, this is a completely different company called mop :)

It can be used on straight or curly, dyed or naturally hair, to make hair straighter for when blowdrying or using straightening irons, there's two types, one for curly hair too.

In it it's got:

A head towel

Mop c-system, c-straight shampoo:
A mild shampoo with antioxidants and citrus extracts to help sleek, manageable hair

Mop c-system, c-straight conditioner:
Moisture rich conditioner with antioxidants and citrus extracts to help smooth texture and preserve colour and promote healthy locks

Mop c-system, c-straight straightening cream:
Is citrus infused for antioxidant support with a uv shield, smoothed curly or wavy hair while adding shine, anti-humectant to control frizz without weighing hair down. Can be used on wet or dry hair.

I will do another review/post on my ultra pack when I use it, hope u all have a nice weekend

Hair growth from a bottle??

Oki so in my post before I said I didn't know wether to buy some hair supplements,
So I did anyway :)
I had an argument with my boyfriend, he said I shouldn't waste money on tablets that don't work
So in the end we agreed to a bet
If after the tablets I brought my hair grows longer then he will by me a pretty present I want
And if they don't I will stop buying them,
Sounds good!!

So, I brought hair tablets from holland and barretts, because they were the cheapest

You get 60 tablets for £6.99, and you have to take 1 a day with a meal, so that's 2 months!

This is what they are:

So my hair looks like this: (I have died my hair from blonde to red and I have no make-up)

(insert bad photo with no make-up)

So my hair is always this length, even if I get it cut it'll grow to this length then stay like this till I get it cut again
So in 1 month I will give an update and picture :)

See you soon lovelies!

hair supplements do they work?

do they actually work?

i want to know,

my hair has always been just below sholder length, and it is doesnt grow.

(insert bad old photo)
 If i have it cut it will grow like wildfire untill it reaches the same length than stop again, why!

so if i take the tablets would they work? has anyone tried them, i need some advice.

Christmas in July???

I was watching on the news today and saw that Selfridges they are putting up a Christmas section/floor, because apparently there is a demand for people to buy Christmas presents early!!

Are people insane!! Why would you buy Christmas present yet, people don't even know what they want yet so how are u spouse to buy them presents.

If you buy for little kids they won't know, and if you ask friends and family they won't care because they won't be thinking about it!!

Grr gets me so annoyed, you've got another 5 months so why don't you save up till December so you can buy better presents!?

:) it's still summer for gawd sake!

Stupid people :)

1 pound eyeshadow????

Sorry I've been MIA the past week, I was enjoying my 2 days off abit too much haha,

Anyway one day last week I went to superdrug to buy some fake tan (review soon) and I stumbled across a whole line of make-up tht was only a pound each, yes everything £1!!!!

I could only buy two things because at this time I didn't have any money left, wish I had gone to this shop first :(

They are the make-up academy and these are the eyeshadows I brought one silver and one pink

The silver is really pretty, not so keen on the pink, they don't have names:
The pink is shade 16-matt
And the silver is shade 1-pearl

The silver is very pigmented and really glittery
The pink you can't really tell is there

But for £1 I am not complaining
Go to your nearest superdrug and see if they still have them it's worth it!!

Lush review- buffy

I'm going to do a review on buffy the body butter from lush,

Lush says:
There's no need for body lotion after a Buffy, because the cocoa and shea butters in it moisturise your skin beautifully. There's something about exfoliating your body that makes you feel bright and bouncy, as well as smooth all over. Slay that cellulite.

I didn't understand how to use it at first because it doesn't explain it on the label or on the website (they have since improved the website), I had to do research, which means if I don't some of you might not either so....

(this is how much I have left now)

To start with I thought you used it after the shower or bath because it was a body butter but it's not, so when I came out the shower I was disappointed to find I couldn't use it,
What you do is when your in shower or bath you rub it all over your skin and then use your hands to rub more to exfoliate your skin then wash it off, after you have finished your skin will be left with a layer of moisture (oil)

What's in it:
Rice and ground almonds to exfoliate your skin (tiny beads)

Shea butter to moistures and gets rid of cellulite (the oil layer left on your skin)

My verdict:
The beads in the body butter are big, they are good if you want a good exfoliate, the beads can hurt if you rub too much, so probably not good for sensitive skin or people that don't like the irritation.

After you rinse it off it leaves a layer of oil which is good to use for shaving, especially if you need to shave after, i need a new razor because the blades are starting to go but because my leg was (moisturised) oiled it slide along and took every single hair, even the stupid ones by the ankle

I don't know wether it's true yet but I do believe it is getting rid of my cellulite too, dunno wether it is actually working or I just think it is.

The only downside is when you dry you get the oil residue and if you wear like a nightie or a skirt your legs rib and it's not that pleasant, I want to rub it all off but can't , so I wear trousers but other then that I love it!!

9 out of 10 go buy it!!
It's £9.00 and I've used it 5 times maybe more and have more than half left :)

Stitch me up

I remade a dress I brought last week,
It is a maxi dress and i brought out my sewing skills :)

(warning lots of photo)

It is very pretty but the top bit is awful,
I don't like halter tops so I changed that

And this bit is very revealing and has extra material everywhere and like a White insert that wasn't needed

First I took out the stocked and removed the cup

Then stitched the whole back up,
It doesn't have to be neat because no one can see it

Next was the extra stuff

Cut the fabric at the seam and then sewed it back up and cut off the extra material

Next I added two buttons on the back

And used the halter straps and just looped them around the button to make normal straps

And wohoo done!!
A nice normal maxi dress

It is still a bit revealing but I am just gonna have a White top underneath

And I got rid of more fabric then this but this is disgusting they could probably make a kids top with all the fabric I through away

in or out?: long peasant skirts.

would you wear this fashion item?
i think it looks good if you have the right body shape or height, if you get it wrong it can look disastrous

is it in or out??
i think in :D

July favourites!

oki so i know its the erm... 6th of july....oki so not that late but anyway here are my favourites for the month of july.
this is my first monthly favioutes but as i keep doing these you will see some of the same things pop up

oki so from left to right (starting with the back and moving forward):

*bad gal lash ( from benefit): i love this makes my eyelashes super long and has a big fat brush

*veganese (from lush): the only conditioner i have found that makes my hair detangled and super clean

* the olive branch shower gel (from lush): i love the smell of this, and it leaves your skin squeaky clean and its all natual ingredients :D

*straight guard defender (from chi): you dont need alot of this at all, stopped using it for a couple of months and didnt use any heat defender on my hair, very very very bad!, and it sineged my hair so now ive gone back to this and its working great

* velvet foundation primer (from gosh): it has silcon in it which doesnt agree with everyones skin and it doesnt sink in, but i love it for the reason that it doesnt sink in, it stays on the skin which means the foundation clings to it to make it last all day, and it really does espically on the bottom of my eyes and my upper lip, which is were i tend to sweat, it stays on, always a plus.

*it stick (beneift): of course this is what all the beauty bloggers brought from the compan magazine, i think thats right, and i absolutly love it, everyone said it will be the last one left on the selves because its not that good, but it suits my skin colour pefectly and with my foundation primer it stays on all day, and i have no bags under my eyes :D

*foundation in illision (urban decay): It is cream to liquid, i think dont quote me on it, and sits on my skin all day, it matchs my skin colour pefectly and because im very VERY pale its hard to find the right foundation, normally there always to dark and i look stupid but this one matches, its a miracle, i will defenctly repurchase it, and i will soon because i have the tinyest bit left =[

*msn(mineralize skinfinsh natural) in medium (by mac): i love this, i have had it for about 6 months now and have only just hit pan with it (insert sad face) but they last for absolutly ages, so for the price you pay it is well worth it, im always scared of buying expensive make-up just incass but it differently lives up to the name, i switch between this and the blotting powder, i think i might get that one when i run out, seen as its summer and i dont want my make-up to run when i sweat, eww!

*lipstick pen (from somewhere): i dont know where this is from, i know its cheap and i got it for christmas of one of those people who just buys you cheap make-up caz its better then nothing, ha, anyway i really like the colour it comes out as, doesnt last for a very long time but it doesnt matter, and i love the idea of a lipstick to look like a lipliner pen.

last but not least:

* black eyeliner (from rimmel london): i have had this for about 2 years now, different products obviously, and i love it, it comes off easily when you sweat or your eyes water but i love the intense black and it glides on so easily.

thats it for my may favouites, sorry for so much writing, i will leave you with a picture of my outfit for today.

what are your favioute products??
