Too Faced - Lip Injection

Too Faced - Lip Injection.  I currently have the one which has both the Lip Injection on one side and the Lip Injection Extreme on the other.

(This involves NO needles!!!  Just thought I had best point this out.  I'm a pretty big fainter when it comes to needle's so probably for the best.......)

This is THE best I have personally tried when it comes to lip plumpers, I haven't found one which matches the effectiveness of this lip plumper.  I have re-purchased this product at least three or four times over the last 5 years or so.


Sorry, not the best quality pictures...

They really do make such a massive difference, I think next time I would probably just purchase the Lip Injection Extreme, as I don't really tend to wear lip gloss much unless I am going out, I tend to stick to a good lip balm most of the time.

BE DOES hurt when you first put it on, be prepared for it.... but you know what they say, no pain no gain!

It just makes your lips look lovely and luscious, and you really, really do notice the difference.  As I say I only tend to wear it on a night out as it's a bit OTT for the daytime look (for me personally.....I don't want to swan round work looking like Angelina Jolie 24/7 haha, I wish!)

It is a little on the pricey side but lasts me a while as I don't wear it too often.  

Just thought I would share this handy little secret with you all!

Wavy Mermaid Hair//Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Waver

Wavy Wavy mermaid hair...........

Sometimes I get a little bored of my everyday hair so I thought I would mix things up a little and have some waves!

I used the Umberto Giannini Glam hair Marcella Waver which I would definitely recommend!  I wasn't sure which one to go for when I was originally buying this from Boots, there were a few different makes and this one was one of the cheaper ones.  I think it was also on sale which was good.

I actually forgot I had it, as I lent it to my sister a few months ago and she has had it ever since.  So I reclaimed it from her and waved things up.

It only took me about 15 mins to do my hair and you can select a few different heat settings.  It's a really nice, easy and quick style to do when you fancy a change :) 

It also stayed put all day without any hairspray which is a plus as I like having curls but usually find I have to coat them with a gallon of hair spray to make them stay put.

If it goes a bit frizzy, just apply some serum/argan oil which tames it and gets rid of frizz.

This is definitely one of my favourites among my many many hair appliances!

Have a wonderful weekend lovelies!

Vo5 Give Me Texture Product Review

So, I have recently discovered a great love for Vo5 products and thought I would give the world my thoughts...

Usually my hair routine consists of washing my hair (with whatever is to hand) and leaving it to dry naturally - mainly because it seems to take my hair ages to dry with a hair dryer.

However, on a weekend when I have more time (especially if I happen to be going out) I tend to make more of an effort.  I like BIGGGG hair, volumised and bouncy.

Not the best picture but you get the point....

Anyway, my main tool for getting massive hair is the Babyliss Big Hair blow dryer tool.  It takes forever for me to get it all done nicely but I only tend to use it when I am going out or making an effort and it really does make your hair look wonderful!  I intend to do a separate blog around this anyway so I will save that for another day.

Anyway, my other secret, is Vo5 give me texture:

It is a powder which you just dust in to your hair, it makes your hair feel slightly funky but it is amazing!  If you are going for the volumised look, this will do wonders!  I just put a but of this along my roots and kind of mess up my hair with my fingers (or back comb it if I am feeling the need for even bigger hair).  If you feel like your hair is going flat again throughout the day you just have to give it another rough up and you will have wonderful volumised hair again.

It also smells lovely and is in a small tube so you can keep it in your bag (handy!)

I just thought I would share this with you all as it is a personal fave.  I have tried a few others which haven't worked anywhere near as well but I would definitely recommend the Vo5 powder.

Anyway, I am currently sat here with half wet hair so I had better go and run a hairdryer over it before I fall asleep with wet hair and wake up resembling a birds nest in the morning.

Good night x

Oh one more thing..... I am doing the dryathlon this month - no drinking for January to raise money for Cancer Research, which is an excellent charity.

If you have even £1 to spare, please, please help me raise money for Cancer Research:

Thank you! x

Update/new house

Bonjour you lovely bloggers!

Once again long time no update from my side!  I have been a very busy bee the last few months.  Just an update, and hopefully now I am in my own home (exciting!!) and settled and have internet access, my updates will be much more frequent.

I have recently moved in to my gran's old house which my dad has very kindly let me move in to, to save for a mortgage (hopefully for said house!)  It has taken quite a bit of work to get in, and I am still half at my parents half here, however I have decorated it beautifully (with the extra help and hard work of my wonderful boyfriend) and it is beginning to look and feel like home.

I will get some better pictures - but here are a few (not great quality) so you get the idea.....

My BEAUTIFUL dressing table <3

This was an old dark stained wood wardrobe which was my grans and had been in the house since the 60's which I painstakingly sanded down by hand and painted - it turned out pretty damn good if I say so myself (maybe I should have a career change?!)

And Last but not Least in any way shape or form - my wonderful sofa which is the most comfortable sofa ever!

........And me practicing handstands as you so....

Anyway - I will get some better quality pictures up this weekend, I am so lucky :)

I have been attending pole dancing fitness classes quite regularly since May (hence the handstand practice!) which I am really enjoying, it is so fun, and it is exercise at the same time - genius!

Anyway I shall leave you with this for now - I have some exciting product blogs to go up in the next week or so.

Take care!

Remember me?

I have neglected my blog for the longest time, but I think it's about time I get back in to the wonderful world of blogging.
I can't quite believe that in my last blog post I was waiting eagerly for summer!  Pink ballet pumps and pin stripe hot pants at the ready.  And now we are back to Autumn!

I have lots to fill you in on in the last 6 months of my life, I have had a drastic change of hair colour for one... I have had dark hair for years and now have decided to go light!  It has gotten gradually lighter and lighter over the summer.


Sorry, not the best picture, it's just one from my phone.

I also have a new job which is going well, being kept very busy, but I am enjoying it, and meeting lots of lovely people in the process.

Anyway, what have you lovely people been getting up to in the time I have been gone?

I am going to get some more exciting topics to blog about in the next few weeks but I thought I would just say "Im Back!!!!" first :)

Chapped peeling lips *sob*

So I have neglected this blog for a while - apologies for that!

Anyway, I have been keeping busy as usual!  I had a nice trip out to the Trafford Centre on Saturday.  Topshop currently has some beautiful clothing in, all in pretty summery pastel shades.  I bought a really cute pair of pink and white hot pants and a cute bra-let floral crop top.  I also got some AMAZING pink glitter ballet pumps.  I have been looking for pink glitter ballet pumps for ages, they are so cute!

I so won't be getting any wear out of these for the next 4 months judging on the weather!  So much for buying accordingly!

Anyway, enough of my blabbering and back to the point of this blog!

My lips are SO chapped at the moment, it is driving me crazy!  Nothing I have been using is working, and I do look after my lips, I never leave the house without some kind of lip balm.  Ever.  I usually carry my carmex with me everywhere, but that is just not helping at all.

They are chapped to the point where they just crack and chap the moment my lip balm wears off so I am constantly having to reapply lip balm all day.  It is horrendous and I can't go without applying lip balm as they irritate me and I end up licking my lips and making it ten times worse! :(

It is impossible to wear lipstick at the moment as it just highlights the problem and looks horrific.

So, I have had ENOUGH!!! I have been doing a little research and am trying a number of different things.  At the moment I am trying E45 cream as it seems to work miracles for other dry skin problems (I'm not sure if you're meant to wear it on your lips but I'm so fed up I am giving it a go!)

I will let you know how I get on with the E45.  I am going to apply a layer tonight before I go to bed because apparently that's the best time for healing them as you are not eating or constantly wearing the balm off.

If anyone else has any good tips, please, please, please let me know as it is driving me crazy!  I hall be forever in your debt!

I will  let you know how I get on and also let you know any other secrets I find along the way!
