Mark Hill “Straight Talking” Straightening Cream

February 12, 2014
mark-hill-straight-thumb

  I picked this up along with the Mark Hill Straight Talking Shampoo & Conditioner. Having naturally curly hair, I’m always looking for things to help me iron out the kinks so I figured I would give this a bash. The Shampoo and  Conditioner were both mediocre at best and I can’t say this really wowed me. It’s a little heavy and greasy for my hair and I didn’t notice it making my life any easier. The smell is Okay,…

Aussie “Dual Personality” Coloured Hair Protector and Shine Serum

February 3, 2014
aussie-colour-serum-thumb

I’m a bit of a sucker for hair products – anything to keep my locks in tip top condition considering it’s length and it’s bright red colour. I’m also a bit of a sucker for Aussie and their three minute miracle is a frequent “hair pick me up” go to so when I saw this a few years ago it became one of my favourite hair serum’s ever. This serum helps to protect coloured hair and makes it lovely and…

TRESemmé Platinum Strength 60 second treatment shot

January 6, 2014
tresemme 60 second shot

  I collect samples of all shapes and sizes and before Latest in Beauty stopped their little beauty boxes I would often order a few bits to try out. This was one of those that I picked up along with an “amie” facemask. Normally I’m not one to stray from Aussie’s three minute miracle, but I dived straight in with this “60 second” treatment shot from TRESemmé. According to Superdrug: “TRESemmé Platinum Strength visibly repairs up to 2 years of damage…

Lee Stafford – Wonder Spray “Blow Dry Faster”

December 20, 2013
Lee Stafford blow dry faster

  If you’re anything like Gem and I, during the festive season you will be run ragged with errands, presents, squeezing in visits to nearest and dearest and trying to prepare for the run up to Christmas. A perfect time to shout about Lee Stafford’s Wonder Spray! My hair is pretty long – granted about 10 inches shorter than it usually is, but if I don’t blow dry, it can take 24 hours for my hair to actually dry properly,…

You don’t have to conform to be successful

November 15, 2013

  (Brains and I looking successful above. Note how we still look like a bunch of greebo’s, even though we are dressed up!) I now find myself reading a lot of Magazines. Most of the content I find is mindless dribble and I have to be honest and say that I’m only interested in either the products they come with, or the hope of finding miracle cosmetics that I don’t already own. Despite this, I still read them from cover…

Birchbox October 2013

October 21, 2013

I seem to have waited forever for this month’s beauty boxes to come around and after an underwhelming Glossybox this month, I couldn’t wait for Birchbox to try and lift my spirits. This months delights included the following: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance | £28.00 A generous 15.0ml helping of this primer was very nice indeed. This will last a lifetime! I used a little of this on Saturday in the frantic morning rush when slapping on my stage makeup.…

Primark “Rock Chic” Accessory Haul!

September 30, 2013
Primark Accessories Rock Chick

I’d actually only planned on popping in to pick up some £5 fake uggs to laze about in, but I couldn’t help a tiny little look at the other bargains on offer! Although I frown in despair when I see a fashionista sporting a bullet belt or a trvegrym band shirt that they’ve never heard of, I do love being able to pick up “alternative” accessories at high street prices! Okay so I only really wanted the black and silver…

Avon Naturals Chamomile and Aloe Vera Care and Repair Conditioning Balm

September 23, 2013
avon hair

I put my hair through hell with the amount of bleach and dye it takes to keep it this blue, so I turn to nourishing treatments for damaged hair at least once a week to try and keep it in good condition. If you’ve ever had extreme hair colour (or style for that matter – mohawks do a hell-a-lot-a damage too!) you will be familiar with the dry ends, dull colour fade and other assorted unwanted side effects of fabulous…

Latest in beauty samples

September 3, 2013

So far I’ve done a really good job of resisting the Latest in Beauty little beauty boxes. Unfortunately, when it comes to having shiny things pushed through the letter box, resistance is futile. This is my first and probably not my last, but my main reason for indulging was the Amie face mask. I keep seeing this brand everywhere, and I think it’s only right that I give something that has the same name as me a whirl! Plus it’s…

August 2013 Glossybox

August 13, 2013

As well as free things, I also came back to Augusts Glossybox upon the return from Bloodstock. It certainly turned a very glum Pants into a very excitable and distracted one! There is something about this box that makes me feel as though it’s Christmas again. Even though everyone else gets the same packaging, it makes me feel as though this was packaged and wrapped just for me. So enough with the jabbering and on with the contents you say?…
