HED uk hair extensions review!

Hey there!

I am very excited!! I have bought my new set of hair extensions, so this is going to be a sort of introductory post about where I got them and the quality things like that. So on that note, let's begin!

I ordered my hair extensions on a Friday for a very prompt delivery on the Monday, I was so surprised when I woke up to them at around half eight! I ordered 12" extensions and they are exactly the length I needed, and people have commented on how natural they look. They came straight in a clear wallet type packaging and with a sectioning clip. I have since done quite a few different styles with them for example  : half up do, curly and a side fishtail braid.

Here is my curly half up do:

I think they look a lot more natural curly than when they are straight.

There are eight pieces: Two one clip wefts, two two clip wefts and four three clip wefts (these vary in size slightly)

I really think that these are really affordable at £20 for remy real hair extensions!

I am planning on doing some more hair extension posts such as caring for them and different styling techniques, so keep your eyes peeled! I am also going to be starting some Christmas themed posts!

I hope you enjoyed this post and speak soon!

Maybelline the falsies mascara review

Hey there!

You mat have recently seen that I bought the maybelline the falsies mascara, so this is going to be what I think about this product!

I have used this every day since I bought it, and the results are quite good, it widens the eyes and gives a bit of length, I think that I would recommend the maybelline colossal volume cat eyes mascara over this one though.

The brushes are different, the falsies has a slightly thicker brush, which I think is meant more for volume, the Cat eyes however has a thinner brush but gives better length.

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments which of the two maybelline mascaras you prefer!

Having my makeup done professionally

Hey there!

Todays post is going to be about when I got my make up done professionally, this was a make up trial for my sisters wedding, and my prom next year, I wanted a fairly neutral look, and I had the airbrush foundation done. I loved the look so much!! One thing I really liked about the whole experience was that Nicola listened to what I wanted, because there have been so many times where make up artists, hairdressers etc haven't listened to what I wanted and done it wrong, this wasn't the case with Nicola.

The company we used was Nicola beauty:

Telephone number: 07967154457
Website: www.nicolabeauty.co.uk

we were all soooo happy with our results, and I think I will be booking Nicola for my prom.

I would recommend Nicola to anyone in need of a beautician.

I hope you found this post useful!!

Collective haul

Hey there!

Today is a fairly different kind of post, unless you hadn't guessed from the title it is a collective haul. I f you like this kind of thing then let me know! on we go!

Firstly here we have my snood or infinity scarf, I got this for £8 at asda.
next is the neals yard remedies power berries daily moisturiser I have written a post about this before so if you want some more information then read that (this is a re purchase!)
The toni and guy cleanse dry shampoo
the VO5 hot oil treatment and my sinful colours nail polish in the color winterberry 

I ordered this back combing brush on Ebay and delivery was fast and the price was good, I am a happy bunny!

This is the lo'real super liner perfect slim in intense black, on first impressions this is great but I have been told that it doesn't last long

This is the Borjois contour clubbing water proof liner in number 45 blue remix the colour pay off is amazing and it lasted all day, overall HAPPY!!

This is the remington MPT 3000 trimmer, this is used to remove unwanted facial hair, £7 from asda

I gave in! I am constantly hearing great things about the Maybelline the falsies mascara so I finally gave in and bought it to try.

This is the Barry M natural glow palette.

These are all beautiful colours, 3 shimmers and 3 mattes, I don't really like the blush though, I am just not a fan of the colour.

The bristows heat protectant, not much to say about this really, it is just a heat protectant...

The No 7 stay perfect foundation, I got matched up with this in store and my colour is calico, I really love this foundation, I reach for this every day, it just leaves such a flawless finish!

The No 7 translucent powder, I use this in conjunction with the foundation, it is a dream to use!

This was a bit of an impulse purchase £12 in Fat face oops! in fairness it is silver plated...

Picked these up in new look, thought they were a bit different, I will hopefully wear the soon, a little bit scared to, not going to lie...

My poor abused babyliss straighteners gave up the ghost :( I had those straighteners for atleast three years and it sadens me deeply to have to part with them. but they have been replaced, I bought the vidal sasson hydra gloss straighteners in stead, £19.96 form asda? Bargain!!

I picked this up for sleep overs and weekends away, I have already used this and it is actually really spacious! This was £5 off a market while I was on my travels this summer!

Finally, I ordered a set of extensions from hair extensions dreams, I will be reviewing these soon.

So that is it!

I hope you enjoyed this post let me know some new products you have bought lately!

chatty post, Bank holiday and apology!

Hey there!!

so as most of you know a little while a go it was August bank holiday meaning that most people get the Monday off as well as Saturday and Sunday. So for my bank holiday I went to Cornwall, While I was there I did a few different things. On the first day I went in to Truro and did a spot of shopping! I would highly recommend going into Truro shopping if you are down that way! While I was there I was supposed to go to the Cornish Country fair, but it turned it we had the wrong day to go. so we went to Falmouth, while we were there I went water zorbing and to the Maritime Museum  let me know what you guys got up to over the bank holiday weekend!
