Review: Got2B warned......


As a regular glee addict, i have seen the Schwarzkopf adverts more times than i care to mention and was really tempted by the 'Got2b POWDER'ful'

I have naturally curly hair this was one of the first products i have found that adds volume only to the roots and didnt require backbrushing so i decided to give it a go!

The product itself is not very expensive (around £4) and i loved the results, it looked absolutely awesome and the effects did last so all in all i felt like i had found a new 'must-have'

Unfortunatly, i dont know what chemicals are in that product but whatever it is KILLS your hair, it feels so dry and dead, and it take serious amounts of work to get it back in a good condition. Within about 20 or 30 minutes i noticed my hair felt really straw like and dry, even after i had washed the product out the next day, so i guessed my hair was just bad condition but it happened again when i next used the product, despite having used an intense conditioner

That said, although i would NEVER reccomend this product as i have it on my shelf i may still use this when i have a big important nightout and i know that i will have time for a 'Hair-SOS' afterwards, but i will probably try to find a different volumiser...Any suggestions?

Splash of Sunshine


As a massive Gossip Girl Fan, im used to Blake Lively looking absolutely flawless...however her outfit at Teen choice awards was so brilliant

This colour is just so perfect for the summer...even if the sun doesnt really seem to want to shine anymore!

I love this orange dress from topshop which cost £42.00
Its a more casual way dress (just incase you have no red carpet events coming up any time soon) 
Or this slightly more formal one
The Shape will really define your waist, which is always a plus! (Topshop...again, £46!)

Orange is definatly a colour that need confidence...something that Blake Lively has in buckets.

So if your feeling slightly more shy you can always try this orange skirt from New Look £7.99

You could use this skirt for the 'Blocking' trend

Do you like Blake Lively's Style?

So here is what i wore on saturday at my sisters 21st birthday party

Im wearing a Patterned dress from New Look which was only £4 in the sale :) ad my old brown belt from accessorize!

I had such an awesome day but my advice to anyone who is attending a party with a bouncey castle is
*Dont go to the gym that day, it is an awesome workout!
*Dont wear a strapless dress, i had to pin mine to my bra!

LWD-Angelic summer dressing


A trend that i am loving at the moment is the LWD or Little White Dress. Unlike its darker counterpart, it can be worn both day and night and it feels more summery!

I'm clearly not the only one.....

*She looks so stunning, but i am a bit biased because i have always loved J-Lo. But seriously, dont you guys agree?*

So, the dresses i like the most are.....

This Dress is from House Of Frazer, the sleeves are a little dressy, but i think its so pretty and the Lace adds a super girly twist which will make it fun for picnic!

This Grecian Drape Dress from River Island (Online) is definatly for making a statement and the detailing at the side where the dress is gathered will stand out and make it look way more expensive than it actually is!

This dress from ASOS is definatly my ULTIMATE, the emblishment are really original and the Empire Line is really flattering on any body shape, particularly after too much ice cream!

Overall i would say if your going for this trend

* Make it a bit different to keep it interesting, try one with embelishment, or add an interesting piece of jewellery
*Ignore the old rule thatwhite only looks good on people with a tan, a LWD will work whatever your skin colour!

*WARNING* picnics and waterfights can be hazardous to your white outfit

Sparkling Summer Rings

After the Royal wedding i have been left with three things

1) A whole bunch of union Jack Bunting
2) A longing to marry a prince

3) A love of pretty rings!

So im indulging the final one with a post on some of the pretty rings that i am lusting after!

This 'Strawberry and Rose Ring' from Miss Selfridge is £6.50 and it is actually one ring, but it looks like you are layering them

This is the imaginatively name 'Vintage Look Cocktail Ring' from topshop and is slightly more pricey at £12.50 but it is so pretty and will really dress up any plain balck dress

I know, this ring from Forever 21 isnt really that pretty, But it reminds me of the ring from 'Como Agua Para Chocolate' which is probably one of the best books i have ever read, and i even liked the film version  of the book! (For me that is rare, i can count on 1 mitten how many times that has happened!)

And finally top of my wish list ring wish

A girl can dream can't she?

Help:Gel or Acrylic Nails


So in the next couple of months i have so many exciting events, from my senior prom, leaving compulsary education (in 3 days :) ) to my sisters 21st

So i was thinking that i may shell out on some fake nails, because i always think nice nails look better!

So....my big question to you all is Gel Nails or Acrylics, what have your experiences been and what would you recommend?

NOTD: Waving In The Spring


A couple of days ago i would have been confident to say to all of you guys 'YAY, its spring time' But after a day and night of what can only be described a torential rain, my spirits have sunk.

So to cheer myself up i decided to paint my nails a really springish colour, and Yes that is a word :)

Sorry for the slightly blurry pictures, my camera is feeling the cold aswell!! The colour is mint green by Barry M and they have a whole bunch of really nice pastel colours is at the moment!

Love x
