Its been a while!

So it's been a very long time since I last blogged purely due to the fact that I have had a ridiculous amount of assessments due in this week. They are all now done and dusted and I can now finally sit in the sun and relax for a bit!

I thought I would give you a sort of update on what I’ve been doing over the past 2 or so weeks just to catch you up on my life :)

So I've been stretching a lot recently to improve on my splits for cheer competition! I'm doing them in the routine and want them to look really good, so I've been stretching hard! I think during the routine they actually look ok as a mixture of adrenaline and the fact that my muscles warm up during the first part of the routine means I can jump into them easy. Also, competition is next week! I'm so scared! All our squads have been training hard, and we went to Woking gym the other day to practise on a sprung floor, and as you can see we went hard from the amount of bruises I have! It’s also been a few weeks full of birthdays. One was for my best friend back home who turned 20! ( We went to TGI's and it was amaazing. We also took lots of photos in one of the photo machines, love them! Such a good way to get memories from a special night. It was also my best friend from uni's birthday and we had an awesome night at BOP (a student night at uni) I've been going to BOP a lot recently and I love it! Miss my flat mates from last year. Also, I’ve been playing around with my new nail dotting tool, love it! Also tried out my mum’s magnetic nail polish which is fricking awesome! BEST THING THIS WEEK, I took a break from work to watch BREAKING DAWN! Love it, definitely the best one, so in love with Jacob.. And Edward.. I can have both right? Oh yer, my mum bought me this totally cool massive book of 100 contemporary designers. I don’t know why she bought me it, buts it’s pretty cool! And finally.. I finished all my essays today! Well until after comp anyway. So I took the time to sit in the sun and soak up that Vitamin D!

Woah long post, but now you're all up to date and I can now get back to some sort of normal life, not stuck in the library working! Looking forward to completing my post on my Cheer Comp! WISH ME LUCK!!!

John Frieda tone correction shampoo

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lack of posts, I have a ridiculous amount of work/essays/assessments at the moment and just haven’t found the time to blog. So I've decided to take a break and type up this shampoo review :)

Now my friend recommended this shampoo to me as she has recently gone from very dark brown hair to an ashy blonde, and she said that this John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone Corrector shampoo was good for stopping the blonde from going a brassy colour. I've noticed recently that my dip dyed blonde ends have started to go a slightly ginger colour so I thought I would give this ago, and I’m glad I did. My blonde looks refreshed and blonde again! It took a few shampoos to notice the difference and it still looks slightly ginger under florescent lighting but I think that’s probably because I left it about 3 months maybe more to attempt to fix the ginger.

The shampoo comes out a purpley colour but don’t let that put you off as it doesn’t stain your hair at all. I tend to leave the shampoo on for a minute or two to let it do its magic and use it 3 or 4 times a week like it says too on the back. It’s also a lot cheaper than tone correcting shampoo's you buy from salons which are usually around £15 - £20. This shampoo is only £5 and can be found in normal drug stores.
It’s also on offer at the moment buy 1 get 1 half price! I just wish I had bought the conditioner as well! :(

What next..

 So this is a post about my hair and what I've done with it and what to do next! I get bored with my hair very quickly so I like to change it every few months, now I'm stuck and cant decide what to do with it. Here's my history.. Let me know what you think I should do next!

So I've had long hair all my life and used to just change the colour. The image on the left is how it has been most of my life, then I grew guts and decided to cut it into a bob about 2 years ago (image on right) after wanting to for a few years.

 I then decided to man up even more and have it cut into a graduated bob (image on left) about 4 months after my bob. I had some blonde highlights done at the same time just to seperate the layers a bit more. I then went to uni about a month after that and, after realising I didnt have any money to get it cut proffesionally, cut the front off of my graduated bob myself as it was growing out and I had gone back to wanting long hair (image on right) I also died it a dark brown about christmas time as I just love the look of dark brown short hair and was bored again.

 I then decided I was bored of brown hair about 5 months after that, especially as it was now getting quite long, so I died it red for the summer (left) I had that for the summer, then decided I wanted to go blonde as I hadnt done that yet! So I had a half head of highlights done just before 2nd year of uni with a brown tint to get rid of the red to get the ball rolling. (right)

I then had a full head of blonde highlights done about 8 weeks later which turned me blonde and I loved it! (left) I then decided about 2 months after that, that I wanted ombre/dip dyed hair before it went out of fashion, so went back brown and died the ends blonde at christmas (right) which I wish I had never done as I loved my blonde hair!

I've now moved my parting to the middle and have decided to grow my fringe out as I'm bored of my hair yet again! I'm just waiting for my fringe to grow out on the left so I can stop clipping it back. I'm now deciding what to do with the colour again as I'm bored of that too. I want to go back blonde as I wasnt blonde for very long but I loved it! Might give that ago soonish. What do you guys think I should do next?!

Body Shop Love etc.. Review

As you may know, it was my birthday a few weeks ago and I got given lots of beautiful goodies, this gorgeous body lotion being one of them. After using it pretty much every night since I got it I thought it was about time I told the world how much I love it!
This Body Shop lotion is light, fresh and luxurious! It smells absolutely beautiful; the bottle describes its fragrance as ‘warm and radiant’ which I agree with. If I we’re to describe it, I would says it’s quite fruity but floral at the same time, beautiful. The sent also stays on your skin for a few hours, leaving your skin smelling and looking amazing! It soaks in really quickly, without leaving a sticky residue on your skin so you can apply it just before going out if you want, or just before bed without having to wait ages for it to sink in. It really moisturises and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth even after one application! I love it!


My Friend also gave me a pocket sized tub of the matching solidperfume, which, obviously, smells the same as the lotion and it’s perfect for just carrying around in your bag. I love perfumes that have matching lotions, it means you can use both and know that you are going to smell beautiful all day long, as well as having gorgeous skin. Perfect. Body Shop really hit the ball with these two!

Trouble sleeping?

I don’t know about you but I often find that I have trouble getting to sleep, especially if I know I have to get up early in the morning. Now, my friend is an Avon representative and she often gives me their brochures to look through if I want anything. I saw this sleep therapy stuff at half price and thought I’d give it ago. And I’m glad I did! I tried the sleep therapy balm first as I wanted to actually see if it worked before I bought the rest of the range. And it really did work. Every time I apply it I find myself falling to sleep much quicker than usual! Whether its psychological or not I don’t know, but if it works, I’m not gna knock it! After finding that the balm work,ed I invested in the sleep therapy pillow mist, just to for the added help, and I found this works just as well! I tend to use the mist more than the balm as its easier and cleaner, but I team them up if I find I'm really struggling to get to sleep! 
There is a slight scent to the mist which is hard to explain, but it smells nice and you soon get used to it, and once you're asleep obviously you're not going to notice it! I would definitely suggest purchasing these products if you feel you have trouble sleeping (there's also a bubble bath but I'm not a massive fan of baths so won’t be investing in that) I can’t remember how much they are but I know they were definitely purse friendly.

Review: Model Co Fibre Lash Kit

So I’ve been really busy the last few weeks as I have so many uni deadlines coming up but I’ve finally managed to find the time to try out the MODEL Co Fibre Lash 'brush on false lashes' kit I got for my birthday. Here’s my review!

I was a bit dubious of trying this Fibre Lash kit as I was worried that the fibres would just fall into my eyes, but I finally gave it a go and the results were good! What you do is apply a layer of the MODEL Co mascara in the kit, then apply a layer of the white fibres just like you would apply mascara, then apply another layer of the mascara to make the fibres black and to stick them to your lashes more.  I found that the fibre and mascara made my eyelashes look very full and so much longer! The fibres were not noticeable at all when the second layer of mascara was applied, I had to remove a few little fibres from the ends of my lashes where they had gone astray, but that was it.
The only criticism I would have of this product is that a few minutes after applying the fibres, it felt like a few had fallen into my eyes, and my eyes became a little itchy. Whether this was just paranoia because I was aware that I had fibres stuck to my lashes, or whether they actually had fallen in there I don’t know but it soon went away after a few minutes and a little bit of rubbing.
Overall, I like this product and think it works well and would definitely use it as a day time mascara, however, I will definitely be sticking to my falsies for nights out as I know that If I use the fibre mascara on a night out, I would just spend the night worrying about whether the fibres had fallen down my face. I would recommend this to anyone who wants long, thicker looking lashes, just make sure you well and truly stick the fibres to your lashes with the mascara! 

No mascara.
