My Eyebrow Threading Experience

Hey Guys, 

I have recently started getting my eyebrows threaded instead of waxing and when I started telling my friends they were all really curious as there seams to be a stigma attached to eyebrow threading. So I thought I would share my experience including some photos. 

As you can see from the photo's they don't look exactly the same my eyebrows never do until I use some product in them. And I can only apologise about the quality of these photos I had to take them on my Iphone with really poor lighting. 

Now I did try and take a before photo but trust me that was not pretty. Basically before I went in I was in desperate need, they were a mess. Truthfully they needed doing two weeks before I actually got them done but I was trying to grow them out so I could get them thicker than I normally do. 

I've seen threading stations all over including most Superdrug's, I get mine done in Debenhams as I think the ladies in there are all super friendly and try to make the experience as painless as they can. 

Now I'm not going to lie, it does hurt, well not hurt more of a sting. Not enough to make your eyes water and it's over pretty quick. The reason I prefer threading is it seems to get a much better line and you can get more of a precise shape. It also seems to get those little hairs that you can't really tell are there normally. The other massive plus for me is I sometimes used to get a reaction from the wax used and obviously there is none of that with threading.  

In in all honesty I'm not 100% happy with these as the lady who normally does them for me wasn't in yesterday and I had to have them done off the other lady who wasn't as good but I still don't think she has done a bad job. 

Have you ever tried eyebrow threading? Let me know how you got on!

Review: Lush Butterbear Bathbomb

Hey Guys, 

I hope your all well on this dark gloomy morning. During winter my most favourite thing to do is take a steaming hot bubble bath using some lovely products. 

Recently one of my colleagues gave me this bath bomb as a little leaving present and I thought I would share my thoughts on it with you. 

Firstly I have to mention how cute is he!! Almost to cute to use, almost! This has a really fresh scent with a touch of vanilla that is not to overpowering and sickly. 
When I first popped this in the bath, I have to admit I was kind of disappointed as nothing happened, no funny colours no popping candy nothing. However when I jumped in I was pleasantly surprised.  Although there was nothing fancy about it it was still filled with all the goodness that I've come to expect from Lush. It's almost like a bath oil kind of feeling. The water feels silky and luxurious and it leaves your skin feeling the same. 

I would definitely recommend this and would purchase this for myself. 

Let me know what your favourite bath products are.

Review: St.Tropez Tannin Mouse

Hey Guys, 

I'm back to day with a review of possibly my favourite fake tan. 

Now I know most people tend to only use fake tanning products in the summer when everyone has their legs out but I tend to use it all year round. I don't use it every day but if I'm going out I do like to add a bit of colour. 
I've got a lot of Christmas parties coming up so I knew I would be using tan and decided to try St.Tropez. Personally I prefer a mouse to a lotion or a spray as I feel it applies easier and isn't to drying. Now I've been a log time user of the cheaper cousin St.Moriz and I love it but it does sometimes go on slightly patchy and  I just wanted to try something new.
 I've tried this a couple of times now and I love it. It's a really nice consistency that's easy to apply and leaves the skin a natural golden colour. It is a little bit pricey but I think for special occasions I would definitely recommend this. 

Let me know if you've tried this or if you can recommend any good fake tans.

Benefit candy-coated countdown advent calender

Hey Guys,

Today I am going to share a quick glimpse of the much sought after Benefit beauty advent calender.

Beauty advent calenders were a massive thing last year and I missed out on one of these bad boys last year so I made it my mission to get one this year. So out of sheer excitement I thought I would share this with you guys. I was on my phone at the exact time they were released and was still very lucky to get one. I am thinking about doing blogmass this year just so I can share the products that are in and some Christmas posts that I've got planned. 

Let me know if you have bought any of these beauty advent calenders this year and if you have which one?

Review: Colab Dry Shampoo

Hey Guys,

Today I'm back with a review of the Colab Dry Shampoo.

Now I'm not afraid to admit that dry shampoo is sometimes my best friend especially those dark mornings when an extra 30 minutes in bed sounds so much nicer than getting up to wash my hair. Now when I had read other reviews of this product I couldn't wait to try it out, I mean a dry shampoo that is light weight and invisible who wouldn't like the sound of that. The scent that I picked up was Tropical and it smells beautiful really fresh and fruity. It's very true to it's word as it doesn't leave the horrible white residue that normal dry shampoo's do. As it is really lightweight I do find that you do need to use a bit more than normal to style your hair but that's still a good thing because your hair still doesn't feel heavy and full of product. I can't decided yet whether this will fully replace my beloved Batisse dry shampoo but I will definitely be repurchasing it.

Have you tried this product? What did you think?

Happy Birthday Little Legs

Hey Guys, 

Bit of a different post from me today as it is Zans birthday I wanted to do a little dedication. Today my little man turns 7, a fact I can't quite believe. I have had him since he was 10 weeks old and he was a huge part of my life from that very first day. 

I thought I would share some fun facts about him and the reasons I love him. 

  • He is literally as daft as a brush
  • His full name is actually Xanku 
  • He hates anything that makes an electrical noise (hair dryers, hoovers, electric toothbrush) and likes to run around the garden barking when I'm using one.
  • He chases his own shadow 
  • He LOVES cuddles and kisses 
  • He is scared of the wind 
  • He has very selective deafness (as most dogs do) 
  • He wants to be every bodies friend but is getting a little grumpy as he gets older. .
  • He is a massive part of my family, I love him like a mother loves a child. 
There you go some fun facts about my little legs! 

Do you have any pets? Do they have any quirky traits?
